History of the Mayor's Cup

This Saturday afternoon South Adelaide and Central District will clash in their annual battle for the Mayor's Cup.

The concept of the Mayor's Cup was introduced in 2004, with South Adelaide and Central District recognising their communities - the City of Onkaparinga and City of Playford - share similar geographics, demographics and challenges, both within the local community and football landscape of South Australia.

The Cup also recognises the ongoing support provided by both the City of Onkaparinga and City of Playford for their respective SANFL Clubs.

Since the Cups inception both clubs have alternated hosting the annual clash, with the Panthers set to host the 14th contest this weekend. In the 13 games played since 2004, Centrals hold a commanding 11-2 record, but South Adelaide are the reigning holders of the Cup after claiming a 31-point victory at the Ponderosa in 2016.

Following the match City of Onkaparinga Mayor, Lorraine Rosenberg and South Adelaide captain Brad Crabb or City of Playford Mayor, Glenn Docherty and Central District captain Trent Goodrem will be presented with the Mayor's Cup.

Under 18s Report

South Adelaide vs North Adelaide
Round 11 - Hickinbotham Oval - 01/07/17

South Adelaide 5.1 7.2 13.7 15.7 97
North Adelaide 0.2 2.4 4.6 4.8 32

Goals: Wilkinson 4, Tucker 3, Colwell, Bogle 2, McGree, Sampson, Fitt, Riddle
Best: Sparrow, Sampson, Beenham, Wilkinson, Whitbread, Tucker

The Panthers Under-18s bounced back this week with a sold four quarter performance against North Adelaide, running out 15.7 (97) to 4.8 (32) winners at Hickinbotham Oval on Saturday afternoon.

This game was significant in that it was our annual Sammy Davis memorial game.

We had Sam's parents Nat and Neil in the rooms after the game to present the "Sammy D" Medal to the player who displayed the most Courage, Commitment and Spirit throughout the game.

Congratulations to Tom Sparrow for winning the Sammy D Medal this year. Tom played an exceptional game in the midfield in his first game back in the team since his school football commitments started in late April.

The game started well with our guys kicking five goals with the help of a strong breeze in the first quarter.

The midfield group did very well to win contested ball early and allowed the game to be played in our front half. The forwards worked extra hard to hold the ball in our forward 50 and apply pressure to the opposition and give us scoring opportunities. 

In the second quarter, North had the wind and looked dangerous at times getting some clean ball from the centre square.

When we won the ball back we were able to maintain possession well on most occasions and keep the ball out of dangerous areas.

North kicked 2.2 to our 2.1 for the quarter.

After halftime the team addressed some focus areas highlighted by the coaches during the long break and continued their dominance in the midfield battle.

The midfield continued their hard work to win the contested ball battle while the backs did their job in rebounding many of Norths scoring movements.

The forward line worked well in both offense and defence and were able to adapt to the windy conditions very well.

Our guys scored 8.5 to 2.4 in the second half to win by 65 points.

It was pleasing to see the players accept the responsibility of correcting some improvement areas from the loss the week before against Norwood.

We now get ready for another hard contest against Centrals out at Elizabeth this week.

Seniors Report

South Adelaide vs North Adelaide
Round 11 - Prospect Oval - 01/07/17

South Adelaide 3.4 3.8 5.9 7.16 58
North Adelaide 1.1 7.2 12.4 16.6 102

Goals: Raitt, Haren 2, Bass, Gotch, Haines
Best: Rose, Gotch, Haines, Cross
Injuries: nil
Crowd: 1486

South Adelaide suffered a 44-point loss to North Adelaide at Prospect Oval on Saturday afternoon.

Despite leading at quartertime, the Panthers were condemned to their fifth consecutive loss thanks to some inaccurate kicking in front of goal and poor skills and decision making in the field of play, eventually falling to a 7.16 (58) to 16.6 (102) defeat.

The Panthers controlled much of the play throughout the first term, recording the first five scoring shots and holding the Roosters goalless right until the siren sounded for quartertime.

However, despite their press holding the play in their forward 50 for most of the stanza, South Adelaide were unable to apply any real scoreboard pressure on the home side and only took a 16-point advantage into the first break.

North came out the much-improved side in the second term. Their manic pressure and hard running helping them outscore the Panthers 6.1 to 0.4, with Lewis Hender looking ominous in the forward half as he kicked three goals for the quarter.

The damage at the major break - a 34-point turnaround and North heading into the change with an 18-point lead.

Daniel Bass opened the scoring in the second half with a brilliant long set shot, with less than a minute played.

However, the Panthers would not register another major score until Ben Haren kicked his second in the 26th minute of the penultimate term.

The Panthers did manage to get the scoreboard ticking over in the final term. However, continued inaccuracy in front of the sticks meant the visitors were unable to truly make much of an indent into the growing margin.

Vice captains Matt Rose (28 possessions and eight marks) and Joel Cross (25 touches and eight clearances) were the major ball winners for the Panthers and fought with their trademark endeavour throughout the game.

Xavier Gotch also continued his impressive form in 2017, collecting 19 disposals, six clearances and hitting the scoreboard with a goal.

Speedy young gun Joseph Haines (19 touches, six marks and a goal) also continued his strong response since being sent back to the Reserves for a game.

The only multiple goal scorers for the Panthers were Haren and Matthew Raitt, who each kicked two.

Best for the victors was Tanner Smith (19 possessions, 10 marks and four goals) and Tom Schwarz (28 touches and eight tackles).

The Panthers will look to return to the winners list this weekend against Central District on Saturday, July 8 at Hickinbotham Oval.

South Adelaide 4.1 5.4 9.7 17.9 111
North Adelaide 0.3 4.8 5.9 6.10 46

Goals: Rolfe, Ah Chee, Bruce, Gulden, Damin 2, Szust, Veide, Need, Schwarz, Aurrichio, Moyle, Tyllis

South Adelaide's Reserves equalled their biggest winning margin of 2017, claiming a 65-point win over North Adelaide at Prospect Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The Panthers now find themselves in the top five after recording their fourth win of the season, knocking off the second placed Roosters with a 17.9 (111) to 6.10 (46) victory.

South Adelaide enjoyed the majority of the play in the first term, racing out to a 22-point lead, with the returning Adam Gulden finding plenty of the footy.

In the second term, the Rooster wrestled back some of the ascendancy and only two points separated the sides at the major break.

However, it was all South Adelaide in the second half, as the visitors outscored North 12.5 to 2.2 and pushed the margin to 65.

Big American ruckman Alex Aurrichio was at his competitive best at the stoppages knocking 33 hit outs, while Henry Bruce, who was recently promoted from the Under-18s, continued to impress at senior level with 25 touches and two goals.

In the rehab group, the rebooted Jake Veide (24 disposals, seven tackles and a goal) successfully navigated his return from a knee reconstruction, while Tyson Brown (24 possessions and eight marks), Roland Ah Chee (two goals) and Gulden (31 touches and two goals) all had an impact on the game in their returns.

Youngsters Robert Badger and Ben Millman were also amongst the Panthers best performers.

The Reserves are next in action against Central District from 11:30am, Saturday, July 8 at Hickinbotham Oval.

South Adelaide joins 2018 Statewide Super Women's League

Posted by South Adelaide Football Club on 30 June 2017
South Adelaide joins 2018 Statewide Super Women's League

South Adelaide is proud to confirm the club will have a women's team compete in the 2018 Statewide Super Women's League.

Following the success of the inaugural season, SANFL has announced that the competition will expand to six teams for season 2018.

South Adelaide will join 2017 competitors Norwood, North Adelaide, West Adelaide and Glenelg while the remaining clubs (Woodville-West Torrens, Sturt and Central District) will be invited to make a submission for the remaining license.

"At South Adelaide we are proud to add a senior women's team to our successful female football programs," said South Adelaide Chief Executive Officer Neill Sharpe.

"The support and enthusiasm from within our junior girls talent pathway over the past two seasons has been fantastic, culminating in our Under-16s winning the 2016 Premiership in their second Grand Final appearance in as many years.

"We are delighted to extend our female programs to the senior ranks and now offer the many talented female footballers in the southern suburbs a clear pathway to pursue a career at the highest level."

With the growth in teams, the new season will be extended from six to 10 minor round games, with each club to play the others twice, plus a two-week finals series.

While the fixture is yet to be determined, the season will commence in early February and will conclude with a Grand Final on or around Anzac Day.

SANFL General Manager Football Adam Kelly said the expansion of the competition was great news for women wanting to play the game.

"SANFL is committed to growing football for females in South Australia and providing even more development opportunities for those aspiring to the elite AFLW level," Kelly said.

"2017 was an outstanding success and was reflective of the enormous growth in females playing the game across all levels of the game. The decision to expand to six teams with a longer season represents an important evolution for the competition and provides two more of our clubs with the desired opportunity to field women's teams.

"We are very pleased to be in the position to be able to extend the competition and grateful to Statewide Super for their continued support which has been instrumental in supporting the growing of the game for women in our State."

Betta Teams: Round 11 - South Adelaide vs North Adelaide

South clash with North at Prospect

South Adelaide head North to wrestle the Roosters in Round 11 SANFL Macca's League action at Prospect Oval this Saturday afternoon. 

The Panthers have added a combination of height, speed and firepower to the lineup that faced Norwood a fortnight ago.

Athletic forward/ruckman Codey Ellison has been named in a forward pocket, with speedy Matt Raitt joining him on a forward flank. Zippy youngster Connor Fairlie has also been named on the extended bench that must be cut to three on Saturday.

All three have a knack for goals and will add some potency to the Panthers forward line.

Only one change has been confirmed to date, with Nic Schwarz being omitted from the League side.

Can't make it to the game? Watch it live with a South Adelaide Digital Pass!

The Reserves will benefit from an injection of experience as several senior Panthers make their return from injury.

On the comeback from hamstring complaints are Roland Ah Chee, Adam Gulden and Tyson Brown, while fan favourite Jake Veide is also set to make a return from a knee reconstruction suffered in late 2016.

The quartet join Schwarz, Ben Heaslip, Alex Moyle and Peter Rolfe as players with League experience in the Reserves.

Meanwhile, South Adelaide's Under-18s also play their Sammy D Memorial match against North Adelaide at Hickinbotham Oval on the same morning.

Remembering Sam Davis - the Sammy D Medal

In 2008, Adelaide teenager and South Adelaide junior Sam Davis fell victim of a violent and unprovoked one-punch assault that cost him his life.

Sam's death is part of an alarming trend in our society around alcohol and drug fuelled violence.

The Sammy D Foundation was founded with the ultimate aim of preventing such a tragedy from ever happening again.

On Saturday when our U18s take on North, the player showcasing the greatest spirit, courage and commitment will be awarded the Sammy D Medal.
