Stephen Doyle was an outstanding junior, and had already played 18 games for South Adelaide in the SANFL before the Sydney Swans (AFL) selected him under the father-son rule in the 1999 national draft. His father Robert, played 77 games for South Melbourne (VFL, 1969-75), and 42 games for South Adelaide (1976-78).
 
Stephen made his AFL debut in 2000, but his career was to be severely hampered by injuries. 
 
The 203 cm ruckman suffered recurring ankle and knee injuries and therefore struggled for continuity in the seniors. He had a steady 2004 season (19 games), and played in the 2006 AFL Grand Final loss to the West Coast Eagles.

At the end of 2007 after playing 47 AFL games, Doyle joined the Norwood Football Club.
 
He provided valuable on-ground experience to the team, particularly in 2008 (11 games) and 2009 (15 games). Doyle appeared for the last time in a league match in the second round of the 2010 season.
 
He was appointed Assistant League Coach to Nathan Bassett in 2012-2013, and was later named General Manager - Finance & Facility Operations at Greater Western Sydney
