AFL careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Originally from Eastern Ranges, he was playing for the Essendon Football Club's reserves team, before being recruited by Port Adelaide. Debuting in the Port Adelaide Football Club's inaugural 1997 AFL side, Kingsley was known as a consistent defender/midfielder.

Later careerEdit

He struggled in 2003, coming close to being delisted, but improved his form and cemented a spot during 2004, being a premiership player that year after working his way back into the side.

2005 saw another consistent season from Kingsley, however, he played just five games in 2006, which cast doubts over his career. In his fifth game in Round 22, he injured his anterior cruciate ligament, which forced his retirement. He said in The Age on 12 September 2006, that he had hoped to continue playing in 2007 before the injury.

Coaching careerEdit

In 2007, he became an assistant coach at Port Adelaide, a position in which he stayed in until the end of 2010.[3]

Kingsley joined St Kilda at the end of the 2010 season as an assistant coach.[3]

In 2019 he will join Richmond as an assistant coach.[2]

Media workEdit

In March 2006, Kingsley won Australia's Brainiest Footballer, a Network Ten quiz show special. He donated the $20,000 that he won to the McGuinness-McDermott Foundation (run by former Adelaide footballers Tony McGuinness and Chris McDermott).
