Vale Mark Naley

South Adelaide Champion passes away.

The South Adelaide Football Club is saddened to learn of the passing of Hall of Famer Mark Naley.

A revered figure at South Adelaide, CEO Neill Sharpe said Mark's loss after a brave battle with illness over the last few years will be felt by many across the football landscape.

"Mark has left an enormous impact on the South Adelaide Football Club, where he captured a generation of fans in the 1980s, and gave the South Adelaide faithful plenty to be excited about. 

"He was such a humble champion of the game and maintained a great connection to the Club following his playing day. Over the last few years, while battling with his health, he'd still get to South Adelaide games and happily sit on the outer or even have a kick of the footy as he did last year at Alberton with son Sam and grandson Finn.

"He is one of the greats of South Adelaide and will be sorely missed."

Mark joined South Adelaide from Sacred Heart College and quickly rose through the Club's junior and senior ranks.

A member of the 1979 Reserves Premiership team, Naley made his debut for the League side a year later and remained a mainstay in the team through to 1986.

In 1984, Mark won the Knuckey Cup (South Adelaide Best and Fairest) after his best season to date.

In 1987 Mark left the Panthers to play with Carlton in the VFL, where he was a regular member of the Blues side all season, finishing the year with a Premiership and 12 Brownlow Medal votes to his name (good enough for equal 10th).

After the 1990 season with Carlton, Mark decided to return to South Adelaide, where he would win the 1991 Magarey Medal (after finishing as runner-up on two previous occasions).

Mark also enjoyed a successful State career. He was selected to the South Australian State Team for the first time in 1981 and made 16 State of Origin appearances between 1981-89 and 1991-92 , winning the Tassie Medal in the 1987 National Carnival and the Fos Williams Medal as South Australia's best player in 1991. He was awarded All-Australian selection in 1986 and 1987.

Mark retired in 1993 after 236 appearances (231 goals) for the Panthers, 67 for Carlton (74) and 16 for South Australia.

He is also a Life Member, Hall of Fame Inductee of South Adelaide Football Club and Member of the "Greatest Team Ever", as well as an inaugural inductee of the South Australian Football Hall of Fame.

Our thoughts are with wife Cassie, children Hannah and Sam, step-daughter Rose and grandson Finn, during this difficult time.

South Adelaide vs Central District
Round 6 - Flinders University Stadium - 4/07/20

South Adelaide 1.1 2.2 3.3  5.6  36
Central District  2.0 2.0 2.1 3.2 20


Goals: Campbell, Charlton, Kirk, Peters, Schirmer
Best: Whiteley, Meyer, Gore, Tahau, Wedding, Kirk
Injuries: Nil

A dominant second half display sees the South Adelaide Women get the win over Central District by 16 points at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

Continuing their winning streak to two games the Panthers managed to register a three goal to one second half to come out on top with a 5.6 (36) to 3.2 (20) victory.

With second place on the line, South Adelaide looked good early with Madison Bennett showing her signature forward pressure.

However, it would not be until the sixth minute mark that Jess Kirk would boot the Panthers first goal of the game.

Nicole Campbell came close to kicking her first goal of the day, but it was marked on the line by fellow Adelaide Crow, Sarah Allan.

Both sides struggled to break the game open thanks to the immense pressure around the stoppages.

However, the Bulldogs were able to strike back late with two quick goals to send the Panthers into the first break facing a 1.1 (7) to 2.0 (12) deficit.

The second quarter saw much of the same as the first, with immense pressure being put around the stoppages.

South found some relief through Hannah Munyard, who was able to open the game up midway through the quarter with her signature run and carry but the Central defence continued to hold firm.

As one of the Panthers best performers of the day, Nikki Gore was busy all around the ground and had to deal with several hard hits including a crunching tackle midway through the second quarter which saw a Central player concussed during the same contest, forcing her to be stretchered off the field.

This same contest saw the dangerous Gore rewarded with a free, which allowed the Panthers to rebound out of defence.

The ball eventually fell into the hands of Tahlia Meyer who broke the game open with a run through the middle.

This end to end play was then finished off nicely by the second-gamer Gypsy Schirmer, whose kick sailed through to give the Panthers a narrow 2.2 (14) to 2.0 (12) lead at the main break.

The third term saw South Adelaide come close to extending the lead on several occasions but to no avail.

But while they could not score up-forward, the Panthers' defence, which was spearheaded by Lisa Whiteley, continued to hold firm.

Whiteley's round six efforts would see her get named as the best on ground for the Panthers.

South Adelaide's sole goal of the third turn came through Teah Charlton, whose strong second-chance grab dead in front of goal allowed the Panthers to increase their lead to 3.3 (21) to 3.3 (13) at the final break.

The tall duo of Indy Tahau and Brianna Wedding continued to be impressive for the Panthers as the side began to take control of the match during the final term.

Following repeated inside 50s, Sheena Peters was able to gain possession out of a marking contest and kick truly to hand the Panthers their first goal of the fourth quarter.

Campbell was able to follow up just four minutes later with her first of the match as the Panthers began to run away with the win.

The combined efforts of Gore and Campbell, as well as a great smother at half-back by Munyard, made sure that the Panthers lead was too much for the Bulldogs to come back from and the siren would eventually sound to hand South a 5.6 (36) to 3.2 (20) win.

The second placed Panthers now face the third placed Bloods at Hisense Stadium on Saturday July 11, from 11am.

South Adelaide vs Glenelg
Round 2 - Adelaide Oval - 5/7/20

South Adelaide 3.1 5.2 7.4  14.8  92
Glenelg 4.1  11.5 14.7 15.7 97

Goals: Sampson 3, Bogle, Fitt, Overall, Wilkinson 2, Dumesny, Kappler, Whittlesea
Best: Broadbent, Sampson, Summerton, Haines
Injuries: Nil

A spirited South Adelaide fight-back falls just one goal shy of an outstanding last quarter comeback as the Panthers lose to the reigning premiers Glenelg by five points at Adelaide Oval on Sunday.

Trailing by 45 points at the final break, the Panthers fought back and doubled their score but were beaten by the final siren, which sounded to give South a 14.8 (92) to 15.7 (97) defeat their first loss of 2020 and their first loss against Glenelg since 2018.

The reigning premiers started the better out of the two sides, as the Tigers booted two unanswered goals before Hayden Sampson (17 disposals) could reply with the Panthers' first goal of the match.

A long bomb by Liam Fitt only four minutes later saw South Adelaide cut the deficit to just single digits.

The Tigers came close to extending the lead on several occasions and would have if it were not for a diving intercept mark by Tom Highmore (15 disposals) as well as a desperate smother by Matthew Broadbent (19 disposals).

However, Glenelg were eventually able to breakthrough with two more unanswered goals before the Panthers were able to respond to via a goal by Sam Overall.

Both sides had equal opportunities with 12 inside 50s a piece during the opening quarter and the Panthers came close from going end to end to even the scores but unfortunately the siren bet them and sent them into the first break facing a narrow 3.1 (19) to 4.1 (25) deficit.

Coming out after the first break, the Panthers struggled to find any momentum and suffered from several costly frees and turnovers which saw Glenelg boot four unanswered goals in just the first eight minutes.

Trailing by five goals, the Panthers found some relief through Luke Bogle (six tackles) whose clever dodge allowed him to take a clear shot at goal.

Moments later an intercept by Broadbent allowed Tom Whittlesea to boot his first of the game.

Broadbent followed up a few minutes later with another intercept and a thumping kick inside South's forward 50 however, it was seen as a free kick and Glenelg regained possession.

The dying stages of the first half saw South Adelaide turn the pressure up with several inside 50s but all were wasted due to either misreading the ball in flight or because of costly frees.

Heading into the main break it was clear that the Panthers had plenty of work to do as they trailed 5.2 (32) to 11.5 (71).

With two quarters left to play, it was the Panthers who struck first during the third quarter through a goal by Eamon Wilkinson.

But the Panthers were not able to capitalise on the early momentum, as Glenelg once again booted two unanswered goals.

South Adelaide were able to steady thanks to a late goal by the second-gamer Zach Dumesny (15 disposals) and the Panthers continued to enjoy repeated forward 50 entries but similar to the second quarter, they unfortunately failed to reflect it on the scoreboard.

Despite having four more inside 50s, the Panthers faced a very ugly 7.4 (46) to 14.7 (91) deficit at the final break.

With plenty of work to do in the final term the Panthers again struck first through a thumping goal by Fitt.

Sampson then followed up just a minute later with his second of the match.

The Panthers began to make the most of their newfound momentum and began putting Glenelg's defence under immense pressure.

In the space of just two minutes both Wilkinson and Bogle booted their second goals of the match.

But it looked as if any chance of a South Adelaide comeback was gone as a costly fumble allowed Partington to boot his third of the match and steady the Tigers.

With Jake Summerton continuing to stand strong down back along with Joe Haines and Tyson Brown who were providing the Panthers with plenty of rebounding potential the Panthers made one last gutsy fight back.

With 19 minutes played, Overall booted his second goal of the match while Jaidan Kappler (14 disposals) was able to sneak down and boot his first of the day.

Joel Cross (24 disposals) and Cam McGree continued to fight desperately around the stoppages then a rebound by Haines allowed Sampson to run in and narrowly boot his third of the day to cut the Tigers lead to just a single goal.

With both teams fighting hard and visibly tired, the Panthers came close to levelling to scores but only managed a behind and the Tigers were just able to hold on to give South their first loss of the season.

However, the gutsy fight back means that the loss had a minimal effect on the Panthers' percentage, which sees the side still sit in a finals position.

South Adelaide will now look to bounce back against Central District at X Convenience Oval on Saturday July 11, from 11:45am.

South Adelaide vs Glenelg
Round 2 - Flinders University Stadium - 4/7/20

South Adelaide 2.2 3.5 4.6  4.7  31
Glenelg 1.2  3.3 8.4 9.6 60

Goals: Freitag, Machin, Oliver, Whitbread
Best: McKinnon, Juckers, Evans, Kraemer, Machin
Injuries: Freitag (Ankle, TBC)

A second half fadeout sees the South Adelaide Reserves suffer a 29-point loss at the hands of Glenelg on a sunny Saturday morning at Flinders University Stadium.

The Panther Reserves led at the main break by two points, but a one to six goal final half saw South Adelaide fall to a 4.7 (31) to 9.6 (60) defeat.

It was a scrappy start by both teams, but it would be the Tigers who would kick the first goal of the match.

However, the Panthers were able to even up the scores with a goal of their own, before a strong pack mark by Damon Freitag in the dying stages allowed him to kick truly and send the Panthers into the first break with a narrow 2.2 (14) to 1.2 (8) lead.

There was a bit of tension between the two sides during the second quarter, but the Panthers still remained competitive with Cooper Machin, Jesse McKinnon and Danny Juckers all performing impressively for the Panthers.

However, a late goal by Glenelg saw the Panthers lead get cut to single digits, and at the main break the scoreboard read 3.5 (23) to 3.3 (21).

To make matters worse, Freitag the Kangaroo Island big man, went off with an ankle injury which left the Panthers' side much shorter than their opponents.

Missing the height up-forward, the Tigers began to take control of the game.

First-gamer Nicholas Kraemer was impressive, as was the defence duo of Darnell Tucker and James Loneragan.

But the Panthers only managed one goal for the quarter and headed into the final break facing a 4.6 (30) to 8.4 (52) deficit.

The fourth quarter was much of the same for the Panthers as they struggled to find any momentum and only managed to register a point for the final term as they fell to a 4.7 (31) to 9.6 (60) defeat.

South Adelaide Reserves now turn their attention towards Central Districts and will face the Bulldogs at X Convenience Oval on Saturday July 11, from 2:25pm.

Goals: Barrett, Draper 2, Hoeck, Magor, Roverts, Spicer
Best: Roberts, Horne, Copley, Cook, Clifton, Spacie

A scoreless final term sees the South Adelaide Under-18s fall to a ten-point loss against Glenelg at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

The Panthers held a slight 14-point lead at the final break, but a 24-point turn around saw South Adelaide suffer an 8.7 (55) to 9.11 (65) defeat.

South Adelaide certainly started the better out of the two sides, with Matt Roberts and Arlo Draper combining to give the Panthers a two-goal lead after just three minutes of play.

However, Glenelg were able to respond late with three unanswered goals to cut South's lead to just 4.1 (25) to 3.4 (22) at the first break.

The second quarter would prove to be a battle of the backlines with the first goal of the quarter not coming until Glenelg struck at the ninth minute mark.

Phoenix Spicer booted the Panthers' sole goal of the quarter and at halftime, the Panthers faced a narrow 5.3 (33) to 5.5 (35) deficit.

The third quarter saw the Panthers begin to open the game up.

Spicer showed his pace as well as agility with some clever footwork, while Jaiden Magor, Hugo Hoeck and Tom Barrett all joined the goalkicking list to give the Panthers' a healthy lead.

Unfortunately, the Tigers were able to respond with a goal in the dying stages to cut South's lead to 8.7 (55) to 6.5 (41) at the final change.

This final Glenelg goal saw the Tigers continue this momentum into the final quarter as they were able to get control of the game and hold the Panthers scoreless.

The final siren would sound to hand the Panthers a narrow 8.7 (55) to 9.11 (65) defeat.

The South Adelaide U18s will now face Central District at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday July 11, from 11am.

Betta Teams: SANFL Round 2 - South Adelaide vs Glenelg

After a gritty win last week, the Panthers return to the home of Football in SA to take on reigning Premiers Glenelg. 

While the Panthers took the points last week, it came at the cost of Co-Captain Matt Rose who suffered a torn bicep tendon and dislocated shoulder midway through the first quarter. 

However, it was better news for Malcolm Karpany, who also went down in the first quarter with a back complaint, has been named in the extended squad for Sundays clash. 

Mark Noble, who returned from Victoria during the COVID shutdown, is also a chance to make his first appearance in the blue and white for 2020. 

Jesse McKinnon, Luke Bogle and James Loneragan are also included in the extended squad of 25, that will be trimmed to 22 before the bounce on Sunday. 

Meanwhile, the Reserves also face Glenelg at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday morning in the first of a triple header. 

Having just fallen short against the Eagles, the Panthers will look to rebound against the Tigers. 

Bailey Snelling comes out of the side after an injury to his knee, along with Lee Hoey who suffered a shoulder injury on Sunday. 

Justin Evans (Brighton), Bradley Potter (Reynella) and Lachlan Williams (SAFC U18/Encounter Bay) are added to the side.

Betta Teams: SANFLW Round 6 - South Adelaide vs Centrals

The South Adelaide Women's team return to Flinders University Stadium for the first time since March to take on Central District. 

The Panthers will be looking to continue on their winning ways after a last quarter surge saw them run out winners over the Bays last week. 

However, they will need to overcome the Dogs without a number of key players. 

Hardnosed midfielder Courtney Barry will be out of action for the remainder of the season, after scans confirmed that Barry ruptured an ACL after she dislocated her kneecap on Sunday. 

Joining her on the sidelines this week is Captain Lauren Buchanan who was ruled out with a foot, and fellow Co-Captain Elyse Haylock who is also out after a knock to her elbow. 

Speedy Czenya Cavouras and dour defender Elke Jarvis are unavailable due to work commitments. 

However, this opens the door for the return of Premiership Player Emily Brockhurst, Brianna Wedding, Sheena Peters, Nat Gibbs and Lauren Clifton

Kristen Rothwell (Willunga) is also included in the extended squad, that will be cut to 22 before the bounce on Saturday. 

The girls round out a triple header of Panthers footy at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday afternoon from 3:30 pm. 

Crowds will be able to attend the game on Saturday, including parking around the ground. 

Social distancing will still be enforced.

South Adelaide Co-captain faces an extended stint on the sidelines

South Adelaide Co-captain Matt Rose faces an extended stint on the sidelines following surgery today to repair a torn bicep tendon.

Rose also suffered a shoulder dislocation in the Round 1 victory over the Eagles.

South Football Manager Warren Ploenges said there was hope that Rose can get back before the end of the season.

"Matt's a very resilient character so you wouldn't put a line through him, but we understand it's a 10-12 week injury"

"We will wait and see how it settles down and go from there."

Ploenges was confident Mal Karpany was a good chance to take his place this Sunday after succumbing to a back injury in the first quarter.

"Mal has responded well to treatment this week, so appears to be a good chance of getting up."

"We will give him every chance of proving his fitness."

Round 5 - ACH Group Stadium - 28/06/20

South Adelaide 1.2 3.2 4.3  7.6  48
Glenelg 2.2 4.3 5.3 5.3 33


Goals: Kirk 3, Gore, Meyer, Bennett, Charlton
Best: Gore, Campbell, Meyer, Kirk, Munyard
Injuries: Barry (Knee), Haylock (Elbow)

A dominate final quarter display sees South Adelaide come from behind to defeat Glenelg by 15 points at ACH Group Stadium on a sunny Sunday.

The Panthers, who were playing their first match in over three months, struggled to find any momentum early and trailed by a goal at the final break however, the Panthers piled on three last quarter goals while holding the Tigers scoreless to claim a hard fought 7.6 (48) to 5.3 (33) victory.

Round Five also saw the welcome return of several of South Adelaide's AFLW draftees, including the 2018 Best and Fairest Nikki Gore and the 2019 runner-up Best and Fairest Hannah Munyard, as well as Premiership players Lisa Whiteley, Cheyenne Hammond, and Nicole Campbell.

But despite the healthy list of inclusions, South Adelaide struggled to get going early and found it hard to cope with Glenelg's pressure.

A highlight of the opening minutes came when Panther debutant Gypsy Schirmer, who was playing her first football game since the U17s Grand Final last year, smothered AFLW star Ebony Marinoff which set the tone for what would prove to be a promising debut for her.

But despite a few early forward entries, it would be Glenelg who would boot the first goal of the game to which the Panthers almost came close to replying to instantly thanks to some great forward pressure by Gore.

However, it would not be until Jess Kirk kicked truly midway through the first quarter that the Panthers would be on the board with their first major of the day.

But the Panthers still could not build off this momentum as the Tigers replied with a goal of their own.

South once again came close to responding, this time thanks to a nice set up by Schirmer but the Panthers failed to convert and headed into the first break facing a 1.2 (8) to 2.2 (14) deficit.

Coming out after the first break, South continued to struggle with Caitlin Gould's dominance in the air but they were able to show their pace thanks to Munyard and Tahlia Meyer.

But despite this, it would be Glenelg who would once again boot the first goal of the quarter.

Kirk was able to show her soccer background with a goal off the ground, while Gore was able to kick her first goal as a Panther with a thumping kick to even the scores.

Meanwhile, down the other end Sam Pratt made her presence felt with a goal saving tackle but the Panthers continued to have problems with containing Marinoff.

A late goal by the home side saw the Panthers once again head into the break trailing this time facing a 3.2 (20) to 4.3 (27) deficit.

South Adelaide needed to win in order to hold onto second spot, but after coming out for the second half, the Tigers booted the first goal of the quarter again.

Meyer would show her class and respond for the Panthers with her first goal of the game, but unfortunately the Panthers would lose Courtney Barry who took a heavy hit and had to be stretched off the ground.

The remainder of the third quarter became a stalemate, as both sides refused to give an inch.

Down by a goal at the final break, the Panthers had plenty of work to do to claim victory.

South looked dangerous early as Teah Charlton came close to booting her first goal of the match but hit the post.

However, Kirk was able to follow up with her third goal of the match to give the Panthers the lead.

Gore, who would go onto be named as the best on ground, took a huge intercept mark and for the first time during the match, the Panthers looked as if they had the momentum.

Gore and Campbell continued to combine through the middle to set up beautiful plays for the Panthers.

Meyer was able to set up Charlton, whose strong contested mark allowed her to extend South's lead. Meanwhile, Georgia Pennifold who was another debutant from South's junior pathway was able to show some promising signs up forward.

With Whiteley standing strong down back and Indy Tahau starting to take her signature pack marks the Panthers began to run away with the match.

Madison Bennett's late goal was the final nail in the coffin, and the siren eventually sounded to signal South Adelaide's strong 7.6 (48) to 5.3 (33) come from behind win.

Sitting second on the ladder, the Panthers now travel back home to face Central District at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday July 4, from 3:30 pm.
