Alan Hickinbotham - 2004 Inductee

Alan Hickinbotham has been almost all things to South Adelaide - player, administrator, president and club patron.

Alan captained and coached the Panthers in 1954, was the Club's president from 1965-1982 and 1988-1989, Chairman between 1965-1971 and 1975-1977, and was involved with South Adelaide right up until his death in 2010.

Alan was responsible for starting the Panther Club many years ago and was involved in the creation of Football Park.

"Hicky" as he was affectionately known around the club, was also a Knuckey Cup winner in 1947 and played six games for the Geelong Football Club and four representative games for South Australia.

In 2005 the Club renamed it's home ground 'Hickinbotham Oval' in Alan's honour.
