South Adelaide Football Club is honoured to reveal a new addition to its 2017 playing kits, with the White Ribbon logo placed proudly on its traditional navy guernsey, to raise awareness against domestic violence against women.
The Panthers have proudly supported White Ribbon since 2013, hosting annual White Ribbon Rounds and inviting White Ribbon Ambassadors to share their stories with the club's senior and junior playing groups and educate them on the effects of domestic violence against women.
"At South Adelaide we not only pride ourselves on developing excellent footballers, but also at educating and nurturing young men into upstanding members of their community," said South Adelaide Chief Executive Officer, Neill Sharpe.
"Men play a pivotal role in helping put an end to domestic violence and playing our role in educating these men is something we strongly believe in.
"We are very proud to display the White Ribbon logo on our guernsey and help bring awareness to our supporters and the wider public."

"The commitment of the South Adelaide Football Club is a great move forward in ending violence toward women," said White Ribbon Ambassador Tod Stokes.
"South Adelaide's commitment over the past few years has shown great leadership in this area.
"To end men's violence against women we must stand up, speak out and act. Silence and inaction will let this violence continue."
In 2016 South Adelaide was presented the Flame of Change Unifying Support (FOCUS) Award for Outstanding White Ribbon Event by an Organisation for their White Ribbon Round, which saw the Club host a White Ribbon luncheon prior to the game and the senior team take the oath against domestic violence prior to the start of the match.
In Round 18 this season (weekend of August 26) South Adelaide will again be hosting a White Ribbon Round against the Adelaide Football Club.

South Adelaide vs Adelaide
Round 2 - Encounter Bay Oval - 16/04/17
Goals: Overall 4, Seccull, Haren, Barnes 2, Fields, Rankine, McMahon
Best: Overall, Rose, Gotch, Liddle, Rankine, Seccull
South Adelaide's encounter with the Crows saw the Panthers fall six points short in a hotly contested Easter Sunday match in Victor Harbor.
A late run of goals, in which South kicked four of the last five goals, had Panthers fans dreaming of 2016's heroics that saw the men in blue and white rein in a six goal deficit and Daniel Bass slot the winning major with just seconds remaining at Hickinbotham Oval.
Sadly time ran out before South could pull off an Easter miracle on come home with the chocolates.
The Panthers were dealt a major blow prior to the first bounce as dual Magarey Medallist Joel Cross was withdrawn from the contest with a knee complaint. Ending a string of 122 consecutive matches and missing the first game of his career at South Adelaide, Cross was replaced in the 21 by hard-running midfielder/wingman Richard Newell.
The Crows looked ominous early, with Harry Dear creating headaches for the Panthers defence. If not for some wayward kicking (Dear sprayed 0.4 in the first term) and late goals to Sam Overall and Brede Seccull the outcome could have been much worse than the nine-point deficit Garry Hocking's men faced at quartertime.
However, as they did against West Adelaide, South lifted when challenged and remained within a couple of kicks at the main break.
Again in the third quarter South Adelaide enjoyed a period of dominance and even edged their noses in front midway through the term. However, as it was for most of the game, the Crows pressure on the Panthers ball carriers was immense and by the final break they had regained the lead.
Adelaide looked the better side in the final term and zipped out to a 26-point buffer thanks to early goals to Dear and 150-gamer Jonathon Beech. South stormed home, kicking four of the last five goals, but ultimately time proved their biggest enemy and Adelaide's lead proved unassailable.
Sam Overall continued to impress up forward with his aerial prowess, clunking seven strong marks on his way to four goals.
Matt Rose (27 touches and seven marks), Xavier Gotch (26 disposals and eight marks) and Nick Liddle (27 possessions, seven marks and seven inside 50s) found plenty of footy for the Panthers. Rose in particular shone across halfback and was also provided a spark when injected into the midfield late in the match.
Meanwhile, Brede Seccull and Matt Rankine were also lively, finishing with 17 tackles and three goals between them.
The Panthers next challenge comes against an unbeaten Glenelg side at 2:10pm this Saturday, April 22 at Hickinbotham Oval.
Prior to the match, the club will be celebrating the Carey-Darley Cup (book your seats via the link below) and honoring the ANZACs with a service before the first bounce.

Under 18s Report
South Adelaide vs Sturt
Round 2 - Hahndorf Oval - 13/04/17
Goals: Fitt 4, Colwell, Tucker, Wilkinson 2, McGree, Sparrow, Robertson, Whitbread
Best: Whitbread, Beenham, Fitt, Kreuger, Wilkinson, Irra
South Adelaide's Under 18s continued their winning start to 2017 with a six-point win over Sturt at Hahndorf Oval on Thursday night.
The team welcomed two new faces in Round 2 after Jackson Elmes (calf) and Reece Milsom (minor knee complaint) were forced to the sidelines due to injury. Lining up for the first time in 2017 were Nathan Kreuger, who settled into the team's back six, and Cameron McGree, who played a ruck and key forward role.
It was Cam's first game at this level and he showed he was ready for this standard with a solid performance all night, taking some great marks in slippery conditions.
The first quarter was the best all night, with our players hitting Sturt with great physicality and following some pre-game plans very well.
The second quarter was an equally physical affair, with both sides cracking in hard. It quickly became a bash and crash slog in and around the ball, with both teams simply trying to get the ball going forward any way possible.
After halftime Sturt really lifted their intensity and work rate at the stoppages and when the ball was in dispute and they rightfully gained control of the game for most of the third quarter.
The last quarter was a good old fashion contested game of footy, with scoring becoming harder and harder.
Sturt had the majority of play inside their forward half and put our backs under some real pressure.
Some of our players were really feeling the pinch after a five day turnaround and had to dig deep to stay in the game and run out the last quarter. To the credit of all our players, in particular our leaders, they held on in a tense last five minutes that saw Sturt come as close as five points and gutted out the win.
Our best performer on the day was Sam Whitbread, who finished the game with 22 touches, nine tackles and a goal.
Nathan Beenham (21 possessions) also found plenty of the ball, while Liam Fitt was our most prolific forward, finishing with four goals.
Nathan Kreuger (15 touches) fit well into our backline in his first game of the season, while Eamon Wilkinson (16 disposals and two goals) and Robert Irra (12 touches and five tackles) also played well.
It was a great win by the team and a real confidence booster going into another big game this week against Glenelg this Saturday, April 22 from 2:10pm at Gliderol Stadium.

Under 16s Report
South Adelaide vs Sturt
Round 4 - Hahndorf Oval - 13/04/17
Goals: Freitag, Fitzgerald
Best: Short, Sladojevic, Fitzgerald, Lippett, Coulthard
After a disappointing result the week before we were hopeful the boys could bounce back against Sturt on Thursday night.
Unfortunately, this was not the case.
Our pressure early was very good and it look as though we had turned up ready to play. However, before we knew it Sturt slotted three quick goals and the boys went into their shells and were not prepared to take the game on.
In the second half we went man on man and to the players credit we were much more competitive.
Sturt were very clean on the night and always had us under pressure when we had the ball, which created turnovers that they capitalized on.
Our best player was Mackenzie Short in his best game so far this season. He played down back and showed very good composure with the ball and used it very well coming out of the backline.
Our captain, Daniel Sladojevic found it tough early, with a lack of opportunities up forward. However, he lead by example and competed really hard in the ruck and used his size very well.
A consistent performer on the night, Jack Fitzgerald played in multiple positions to fill holes for us, while Marcus Lippett worked really hard in tight, won a lot of hard ball gets and brought his teammates into the game.
Matt Coulthard had another good game, showing clean hands and used the ball very well.
This week we take on Glenelg and we will have a number of guys that will get an opportunity that we have not seen yet.
We will work hard on the track this week and will remain positive and continue to improve in some areas.
