Bryan Ploenges - 2015 Inductee

Bryan Ploenges made major contributions to South Adelaide Football Club both on and off the field.

Starting with the Club's senior colts in 1958, he worked his way through the Panthers junior programs and eventually played 142 league games and made two state appearances for South Australia before retiring in 1968.

After initially struggling to hold a regular place in the League side, BP came into his own after being tried on a wing, where his blistering pace, excellent judgment and read of the ball, as well as tidy disposal made him a devastating player in open space.

An integral part of the 1964 Premiership team, Bryan was one of the best afield in the Panthers Grand Final defeat of Port Adelaide.

After retiring as a player Bryan served as Reserves coach and assistant League coach for two seasons. Bryan then began a long career as a South Adelaide committeeman and SANFL delegate.

Bryan now serves as a member of the Club's Heritage Committee.
