Former Melbourne VFL/AFL player Sean Wight has died of lung cancer aged 47.

Scottish-born Wight, who grew up in Ireland, was at the forefront of the Demons' experiment of importing Irish players in the 1980s.

He played alongside current club president Jim Stynes in the Demons' losing 1988 grand final team.

Stynes is coincidentally also battling cancer.

Wight played 150 games over a 10-year career with Melbourne.
