Paul Dooley (footballer)

Paul Dooley (born 3 October 1975) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for the Western Bulldogs in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Dooley played initially at Melbourne where he appeared at reserves level. He joined Williamstown in 1996 and won the J. J. Liston Trophy.

After being drafted by the Western Bulldogs, he found it had to break into the seniors as they already had established ruckmen in Luke Darcy and Scott Wynd. Dooley made his debut in the opening round of the 1998 AFL season and kicked a goal with his first kick in league football. He was not picked again for the rest of the year and spent the entire 1999 season in the seconds. Eventually returning to the seniors in 2000, he participated in eight games, including his club's famous win over Essendon, their only loss of the season.
