A solid, competitive utility-defender, Bailey first appeared on the senior list in 1982 before making his debut two seasons later. He came from a successful junior pedigree, having played in eight premierships for St Peter's.
He is most famous for kicking the winning goal in the 1987 Panasonic Cup Final after taking a handpass from Peter Giles. He'd spent most of the night on the bench with sore ribs but recovered to be in the right place at the right time.
Bailey joined the Cats in 1990 but played just one match and before the end of the year was in the VFA playing for Sandringham. Bailey would feature in 81 games with the Zebras between 1990 and 1994, including two premierships, before returning to them as an assistant coach from 2000 to 2003.
