From the CEO: How You Can Help Our Future Champions

From the CEO: How You Can Help Our Future Champions

With June 30 a little over a week away nearly $45,000 has been raised in the South Adelaide Football Club Junior Development Fund. While the Fund will continue into 2018, the next week represents the last opportunity you will have to make a tax deductible donation in this financial year.

So far donations have ranged from $50 to $5000 and have come from a wide range of South supporters, including judges, media personalities, long-time members, former players and coaches and sponsors such as southern-based business Seeley International.

Maintaining the integrity of our underage program is critical to the long-term success of the football club. Despite the financial challenges the Club currently faces we have been able to protect the junior program, through the use of this fund.

Under the stewardship of the soon to depart Talent Manager Tony Bamford we have made some significant improvements in recent years to our junior programs. Our Under-18s currently sit on the top of the ladder having not lost a game.


Kreugs make the cut: Talented utility Nathan Kreuger has been selected in the U18 State Squad. Image: Nick Hook Photography

Our talented junior crop has also been recognised at the next level. We have two players (Robert Irra and Nathan Kreuger) in the State U18 Squad, while five players (overage ruckman, Cameron McGree, Hayden Sampson, Sam Whitbread, Job Colwell and Eamon Wilkinson) will represent the SA U17 Futures team and three players (Daniel Sladojevic, Aaron Douglass and Kangaroo Island product Damon Freitag) will play in the U16 State Team against Western Australia this weekend.

Importantly too we have seen in recent weeks three U18 players (Henry Bruce, Liam Fitt and Hayden Sampson) progress to senior Reserves grade level and be part of their recent form turnaround. This is fantastic for their development and all have acquitted themselves well at the next level.

A key reason for the strength being exhibited in our U18s is the foundation that has been laid in our Development Squad program. They are currently on in earnest and our U13s, U14s and U15 Country teams play Friday night at Hickinbotham Oval. Panthers Captain Brad Crabb and Dual Magarey Medallist Joel Cross are among the coaching group in these grades as they look to develop the next generation of Panthers players. During the July school holiday our U15 Country and Metro, along with U17s will compete in the State Championships against other SANFL clubs.


Creating Our Future: Still eligible for U18s, Hayden Sampson (32), Liam Fitt (centre) and Henry Bruce (55) have all played Reserves level football in 2017. Image: Nick Hook Photography

At the conclusion of these programs our U14 and U17 girls will start their training, with their season set to commence in August and September.

Thank you to all those that have made a contribution so far. It is genuinely appreciated and imperative to the South Adelaide Football Club creating its future. However, we still have a long way to go to reach our target of $200,000 by October 2018.

Any contribution will help. If you can contribute something in to the SAFC Junior Development Fund before June 30 you will know you've played a part in helping the young men and women be part of the best underage program in the SANFL, while also receiving a great tax benefit.

Sincerely,

Neill Sharpe
Chief Executive Officer

Pair of Panthers Honoured by Australian Football Hall of Fame

Posted by South Adelaide Football Club on 21 June 2017
Pair of Panthers Honoured by Australian Football Hall of Fame

South Adelaide icons Simon Goodwin and Charles Cameron Kingston have been honoured at the Australian Football Hall of Fame gala event held at Adelaide Oval last night.

Former Panther Goodwin was the first to be inducted to the Australian Football Hall of Fame last night. 

Goodwin played his junior football with South Adelaide and was part of the 1994 U19 premiership side. He also had a taste of League football before being selected by the Adelaide Crows with pick 18 in the 1996 Pre-Season Draft.

During his acceptance speech, Goodwin spoke fondly of his time with the Panthers. He recalled using a rolled up sock as a football and pretending he was Mark Naley in the hallway of his home. He also thanked his four South Adelaide coaches, including Shane Reardon, for their guidance during his formative years as a footballer.

His journey with the Crows is well decorated and Goodwin now finds himself at the helm of the Melbourne Demons. 

Also honoured on the night was Charles Cameron Kingston, who was recognised a Pioneer.

Kingston was a 26-year-old lawyer and footballer when he led a playing group to form the South Adelaide Football Club in 1876 and was a member of the first ever South Australian Premiership with South in 1877.

Known for his 'enthusiasm and vigour' on the field, Kingston also showcased these qualities in 1877 when, at a meeting of delegates from 13 football clubs in the colony to consider the formation of a Football Association, he formalised his idea of the brand of football to be played in he colony.

Kingston oppose the motion that players should be allowed to run with the ball as in rugby, asserting instead that the Victorian rules, which included bouncing the ball and using an oval shaped ball apposed to a round one, should be adopted as far as possible.

If not for Kingston's leadership, South Australia may have become a rugby state.

After a two-year playing career with South Adelaide, Kingston served as an association delegate, club chairman and was president of South Adelaide for 30 years until his death in 1908. He was also the club's first life member.

Kingston's career as a Lawyer, Politician and Statesman was equally significant. He was elected to State Parliament in 1881 aged 30 years, served as Attorney General and became Queens Counsel in 1889. He became Premier of South Australia in 1893 and was appointed a Privy Councillor in 1897. He was Chairman of the Federal Convention held during 1897-98. He travelled to London in 1900 with Colonial Premiers Deakin and Barton to oversee the passage of the Commonwealth of Australia Bill through the Imperial Parliament. Widely tipped to be the first Prime Minister of Australia, he was instead appointed as the first Federal Minister of Trade. The Federal seat of Kingston is named in his honour. His citation was fittingly read by one of his successors as SA Premier, the Hon John Olsen AO.

Seniors Report

South Adelaide vs Norwood
Round 10 - Hickinbotham Oval - 18/06/17

South Adelaide 1.2 3.6 3.8 8.12 60
Norwood 4.1 7.5 9.8 10.8 68

Goals: Newell 3, Barnes, Overall, Davis, Schwarz, McMahon
Best: Liddle, Rose, Gotch, Newell, Haines
Injuries: nil
Crowd: 1849

South Adelaide paid the price for inconsistent effort and suffered an eight-point loss to Norwood at Hickinbotham Oval on Sunday afternoon.

Despite fighting back a six-goal deficit in the final term to draw within eight points, the Panthers were unable to undo the Redlegs dominant play through three quarters and fell to a 8.12 (60) to 10.8 (68) loss.

Norwood took control of the match early, with Lewis Johnston and Cam Shenton kicking the first four goals of the game between them.

Meanwhile, the Panthers waited until the 25th minute of the first term to hit the scoreboard through a brilliant piece of running play and raking left foot kick from Richard Newell.

South fought back in the second, with early goals to Newell and Jackson McMahon pulling the margin back slightly. However, the hosts were left to rue some poor kicking for goal, spraying 2.4 for the quarter and conceded two goals in time on to head into halftime down 23 points.

The third quarter was fought with endeavor, but poor skill and turnovers would prove costly and 36 points would separate the two sides at the final break.

To the Panthers credit they came home with a wet sail in the fourth.

After Newell and Redlegs speedster Anthony Wilson traded goals in the opening minutes, the Panthers would register the final eight scoring shots of the quarter.

Once Rigby Barnes kicked his first in the 31st minute of the quarter the margin was reduced to just eight points. 

If not for some inaccurate kicking (South kicked 4.4 to Norwood's 0.0 in the final 25 minutes) the result may have been different.

However, it was much too little too late.

Classy on baller Nick Liddle could again hold his head high after another impressive performance.

The three-time Panthers best and fairest claimed 22 disposals, clunked seven marks and laid a team-high nine tackles in clearly South's best individual performance.

Matt Rose (25 touches and eight tackles) and Xavier Gotch (23 possessions) continued to find plenty of the ball through the middle of the ground, while Joseph Haines continued his positive response to being sent back to the Reserves with 24 touches and six marks.

Also impressive after receiving the call up from the twos was the hard-running Newell, kicking 3.2 and providing plenty of energy and run.

For the visitors, Brad McKenzie (30 touches) found plenty of the ball, Jace Bode was rock solid in defence and the aforementioned Johnston was a dangerous target up forward.

The Panthers will have time to reset over the split round bye this weekend before looking to end a four-game losing streak against North Adelaide on Saturday, July 1 at Prospect Oval.

Reserves Report

South Adelaide vs Norwood
Round 10 - Hickinbotham Oval - 18/06/17

South Adelaide 5.1 11.4 14.5 18.8 116
Norwood 1.0 1.0 6.1 9.3 57

Goals: Need, Ellison 3, Fitt, Rolfe, Tyllis, Fairlie 2, Heaslip, Raitt, Aurrichio, Damin
Best: Raitt, Fitt, Ellison, Heaslip, Fairlie, Bruce

South Adelaide's Reserves claimed another scalp in emphatic fashion, claiming a 59-point win over Norwood at Hickinbotham Oval on Sunday afternoon.

The Panthers claimed their third win of the season on the back of a strong first half and much-improved game style, earning a 11.8 (116) to 9.3 (57) victory.

Earlier in the season, South Adelaide's ball movement was characterised by inconsistent skill level and decision making. However, in recent weeks this has become the anomaly rather than the expectation.

In the first half, the hosts methodically picked apart Norwood's defensive pressure and were able to pile on goals through their precise ball movement. The result being a 64-point margin at the major break.

To the Redlegs credit they did fight back after the break and did win the third term. However, a good response from Adam Blakely's men in the final term saw them run out the game comfortably.

Flagstaff Hill recruit Matt Raitt was again impressive with his work around the stoppages and physical defensive pressure, finishing with 21 touches and a goal.

Forward/ruckman Codey Ellison claimed a match-high 10 marks on his way to three goals, while junior Liam Fitt was also a key target up forward with two goals.

Ben Heaslip (27 possessions, seven marks, five tackles and a goal) and Connor Fairlie (27 disposals, six marks, five tackles and two goals) were the leading possession getters on the ground and both also hit the scoreboard, while Henry Bruce continued to look at home at senior level with 24 touches.

Also pleasingly, Peter Rolfe ran out his first game in over two years without any issues, claiming two goals in the process.

The Reserves also enjoy the bye next weekend and are next in action against North Adelaide from 11:30am, Saturday, July 1 at Prospect Oval.

Betta Teams: Round 10 - South Adelaide vs Norwood

South look to run over Redlegs

Round 10 SANFL Macca's League action sees South Adelaide do battle with Norwood at Hickinbotham Oval this Sunday afternoon. 

The Panthers made it through Round 9 unscathed on the injury front, with young gun Ben Heaslip the only confirmed omission from the side that tackled the Eagles over the long weekend.

Booming left-footer Tom Fields looks set to return to League action, named on a halfback flank after 30 touches and 11 marks in the Reserves big win over Woodville-West Torrens.

Also coming into the squad of 23 is young defender Jordan Taylor, who is in line to make his senior debut if selected, and hard-running Richard Newell, who last played League footy in Round 2, but has averaged 29.8 possession per game in six hit outs with the Reserves since.

Both have been named on an extended bench that must be cut by two before first bounce.

You can Kick 2 Win $500 this Sunday!

The Reserves, fresh off an emphatic win over the Eagles, welcome Heaslip back into the mix, while also regaining the services of key position swingman Bryce Damin.

However, the biggest story is the return of talented forward Peter Rolfe, who is set to play his first game in 742 days having sat out more than two years since injuring his knee against Woodville-West Torrens on the Queen's Birthday in 2015.

The Panthers Under-18s enjoy the bye this weekend after an unbeaten start to the season.
