UPDATE: THREE current AFL coaches and triple-premiership Geelong star Matthew Scarlett headline a group of eight players announced as new AFL life members today.

As exclusively revealed by SuperFooty earlier, Fremantle coach Ross Lyon, Gold Coast's Guy McKenna along with star Docker Matthew Pavlich will receive the honour.

Richmond coach Damien Hardwick, Tigers' team of the century member Michael Green, former Collingwood premiership player and club president Kevin Rose and West Coast chief executive Trevor Nisbett were the other recipients.

They will officially receive their memberships at the AFL's next annual general meeting in March.

Life member is awarded to those who have helped build the game, either on-field as players for their work off-field.

Lyon played 129 games with Fitzroy and the Brisbane Bears, before becoming an assistant coach at Richmond, Carlton and then Sydney.

He coached St Kilda to three grand finals, including one replay, from 2007 to 2011 before switching to Fremantle.

Pavlich is the captain of the Dockers and has played 279 games since debuting in 2000.

McKenna played 267 AFL games for the West Coast Eagles, playing in the 1992 and 1994 premiership.

He then went to become an assistant coach at West Coast and then Collingwood before being appointed the inaugural coach of the Gold Coast Suns.
