South Adelaide farewell two club greats with a seven-point victory over the AFL laden Adelaide on an emotional day at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

In a season that saw the Panthers suffer draws, close losses and the loss of key players to the AFL; the victory was the way best possible send off for the 200 plus gamer Bradley Crabb, and the five-time Knuckey Cup winner Nick Liddle.

Despite narrowly missing out on a finals spot; the scenes after the game were of celebration and emotion as the two were chaired off Flinders University Stadium in front of proud supporters and family.

With familiar faces watching; it was the Panthers who scored first with Sam Overall (14 disposals and four contested marks) kicking truly after three minutes of play.

Liam Fitt (15 disposals and five tackles) and Eamon Wilkinson (seven disposals and two marks) gave the Panthers two goals in two minutes mid-way through the first term.

Overall then followed up late in the quarter with his second goal to send the Panthers into the first break with a 4.3 (27) to 2.1 (13) lead.

Unlike the previous wet and wild round; Crabb and Liddle's farewell game was played in more favourable conditions.

Coming out after the first break; South Adelaide's leading goalkicker Joel Cross (24 disposals and five clearances) continued his string of impressive performances with a goal coming after just 58 seconds of play.

Just five minutes later, Hayden Sampson (14 disposals and four inside 50s) followed suit with his first goal of the match.

However, Adelaide were able to take control and the lead as they booted four unanswered goals midway through the quarter.

Luckily for the home side, Thomas Whittlesea (seven marks and five tackles) was able to steady the Panthers with a very late goal.

Heading into the main break with the narrowest of margins; 7.3 (45) to 7.2 (44), the Panthers had plenty of work to do to ensure the win.

Continuing his breakout year was Joe Haines who collected 31 disposals, 12 marks and four rebound 50s while going up against quality AFL opposition.

Overall continued his run; kicking his third goal to start the third quarter. Meanwhile, Co-Captain Matt Rose was also busy around the ground; finishing with 27 disposals, 11 tackles and five clearances.

Local product Ben Heaslip (19 disposals and three clearances) also continued his impressive season with a goal mid-way through the quarter.

With the Panthers holding Adelaide to just one goal for the quarter; an impressive clearance and goal by Abe Davis (24 disposals, nine marks and five tackles) saw South enter the final break with a 10.7 (67) to 8.4 (52) lead.

However, the quarter wasn't without setbacks; with Ben Haren suffering a bad concussion which forced him to be stretched from the game.

Coming out with one quarter left to play alongside two of South Adelaide's biggest cult heroes; it was Davis who struck first with a goal at the seventh minute mark.

Unfortunately, three costly free kicks resulted in three goals for Adelaide in just five minutes to cut the Panthers lead to single digits.

Luckily, the Panthers were able to steady through Fitt who kicked his second of the game at the twentieth minute mark.

Adelaide did respond with a goal, but it was too little too late, as the siren went to give the Panthers a win in their final game for the 2019 season.

Donning the blue and white for the last time, Nick Liddle finished his final game with 31 disposals, six marks and four tackles to be rightfully named best on ground for the Panthers.

Likewise, the king of KI finished with ten disposals and two marks against a quality AFL opponent; a staple of Crabb's tendency to take on and beat guys that are twice his size.

Despite other results not going South Adelaide's way, meant missing out on the finals by just one win; the season saw plenty of highs including numerous debutants, big wins and being the only team in the SANFL that didn't lose to the minor premiers.

Likewise, South Adelaide's third straight victory was a fitting send off for two club greats in front of adoring fans and family at Flinders University Stadium.

And here's to a hopefully bigger and better 2020 season for the boys in the blue and white.

Injuries: Badger (Knee), Coleman (Ankle), Colwell (Knee)

The South Adelaide Reserves finish off their year in spectacular fashion; knocking off the Bulldogs by 36 points at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday.

It was another dominant second half display by the Panthers that saw them come out on top with a 16.4 (100) to 9.10 (64) victory.

Unfortunately, their fourth straight victory wasn't enough for the South Adelaide Reserves to make finals, as they missed out by just 3.5 per cent.

The game didn't begin exactly as planned; with the Panthers suffering two injuries early which took a toll on the side's rotations for the rest of the match.

However, it was Cam McGree who kicked the first goal of the match. He would go on to kick three goals in total and collect 29 hit outs and 14 disposals to be named the Best on Ground for the game.

Mid-way through the quarter, Brett Kennedy (15 disposals and six marks) kicked his first of many goals and Jesse Moffa (17 disposals and six marks) goaled late to send the Panthers into the first break with a narrow 3.0 (18) to 3.3 (21) deficit.

Joel Beeche (12 disposals and three tackles) would also open his account with his first coming after just three minutes of play.

Kennedy followed with his second goal of the game; however, Centrals had begun to take control, sending the Panthers into the main break facing a 5.0 (30) to 7.7 (49) deficit.

Coming out after the main break; McGree kicked his second goal of the match before back to back goals by Luke Bogle (29 disposals, eight tackles and six clearances) saw the Panthers reflect the second half surge that has become a signature over the past four weeks.

Kennedy booted his third goal while Nic Schwarz (23 disposals and five marks) and Tarik Illingworth (13 disposals and five tackles) followed with their first of the game.

Mark Noble continued to be busy around the ground; finishing the match with 33 disposals, eight marks and seven clearances. Meanwhile, James Loneragan was strong down back; collecting 18 disposals and seven rebound 50s.

Kicking six third quarter goals to the visitors two; the Panthers went into the final break with seven-point lead and strong momentum.

The momentum continued in the final quarter as Beeche kicked his second, McGree kicked his third and Kennedy kicked his fourth goal of the match.

Kyle Emery (19 disposals and five tackles) also got on the board with two final quarter goals; one of which came from a tough angle and off a good assist by Kennedy.

With the Panthers holding the Bulldogs goalless in the final quarter; South Adelaide ran away with a six-goal victory in the final game of 2019.

Finals aside, the victory came against quality opposition in the form of the fourth placed Bulldogs, was a fitting way to end the 2019 season.

South Adelaide Under-18s finish off the minor round with a comfortable win over Centrals on Saturday morning.

Round 18 saw us travel to Elizabeth Oval to play Central for the second time in 3 rounds.

This time it was before Central's League team and their coach Roy Laird's last game after 17 years in charge of the club, which is a fantastic achievement.

Although Central Under 18's has not had a great season, we were expecting there to be some emotion in the game given the day for the club and its leader.

We had two changes to the team this week with Arlo Draper going out with injury and our captain, Aaron Douglass going up to the reserves.

This gave two Reynella boys an opportunity. Boyd Austin came back into the side after missing since round 10.

Lachlan Inthavong got a chance, this time playing as a small defender due to good form playing A grade for Reynella in the same position.

In the first quarter we had almost twice as many possessions as Centrals. In the second they were almost level.

We did have twice the inside 50's, but Centrals scored from some of our mistakes.

At one stage it looked as if we were going to lose the quarter, Daniel Sladojevic and Mitch Riddle both goaled within the last three minutes, to go into half time 32 points up.

We started the 3rd quarter well by creating chances, but again we couldn't convert as well as we would like.

Sladojevic kicked three for the quarter and Liam Hamilton bobbed up and kicked one to give us a 59-point lead at the last change. 

After 3-quarter time as the players were going back out to their position, we were advised that one of the Central players was requiring an ambulance to take him to hospital following a knee injury sustained earlier in the match.

Due to the the time it would take for the ambulance to arrive, it would have meant that there would only be approximately 10-minutes of play remaining. 

After discussions with all parties, the game was abandoned giving us a 59-point win.

We were happy to take the win and end the minor round in 3rd spot behind the Eagles and West Adelaide.

We now get ready to play Glenelg in a Elimination Final next Saturday, win and we play off in a preliminary final, lose and the season is finished. We look forward to the challenge.

South Adelaide Under-18s travel to the Ponderosa in an important clash to end the home and away season on Saturday morning.

Having got past the fourth placed Roosters to lock in a finals berth last week, the in-form Under-18s will look for a strong showing against a Centrals outfit who has struggled in 2019.

There are three confirmed changes with Daniel Sladojevic and Round 17 Cardijn College Junior Player of the week Arlo Draper ruled out of Saturdays clash. Captian and 2019 Sammy D Medalist Aaron Douglass has been called up to play Reserves against Centrals on Saturday morning.

Betta Teams: SANFL Round 18 - South Adelaide vs Adelaide

South Adelaide name two inclusions to the 23-man squad for Saturday's huge match against the Crows.

After an impressive four-quarter performance against the Roosters in tough conditions, the Panthers enter Saturday's match with everything to play for. 

Not only is there a spot in the five up for grabs, but five-time Knuckey Cup winner, Nick Lidde has decided he'll hang up the boots at seasons end, joining veteran Brad Crabb who also announced his retirement last week

Both Liddle and Crabb will play their final match at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday. 

For the Panthers to sneak into September action, they need to win on Saturday while relying on either Norwood (who play West Adelaide on Friday night) or Sturt (who play Glenelg on Saturday afternoon) to lose. 

Over the last two weeks Hayden Sampson and Jesse McKinnon have taken home the Powerade Breakthrough player of the week award, and will be looking to keep their strong form going. 

Coming into the squad of 23, which will be cut to 21 by the start of the game, is the speedy Mark Noble and the ever reliable Nic Schwarz.

There is no excuse not to get down to Flinders University Stadium on Saturday to farewell two club champions, but also help support the boys and get them over the line. 

The important day of Panthers footy kicks off with the reserves 11:15am followed by the League at 2:10pm.

Nick Liddle calls time on a stellar career

Posted by Jonathon Parker on 21 August 2019
Nick Liddle calls time on a stellar career

Five-Time Knuckey Cup winner Nick Liddle has decided to hang up the boots on the completion of the 2019 season.

The hard-nosed onballer informed the football club and his team mates on Tuesday night of his decision to retire at the end of the 2019 season. 

Since coming across to the Panthers from Coburg in 2010, Nick Liddle has gone on to become an integral part of South Adelaide both on and off the field. 

Affectionately known as 'Lids' he has gone on to claim five Knuckey Cup's, putting him one behind Jim Deane and two behind Peter Darley, two of the Panthers greats. 

In 2018, Liddle took home the R.O Shearman Medal with an impressive 99 votes. The R.O. Shearman Medal is awarded to the best player as voted by each SANFL senior coach.  

"Since getting Nick over to South Adelaide in 2010, he has embraced this club and brought into what we are all about" Said South Adelaide CEO Neill Sharpe.

"Football clubs need people like Nick, who are genuine good people and who always gives his heart and soul."

Sharpe also highlights the individual success that Liddle has had at his time at the club.

"There isn't much that Nick hasn't done, he has been an incredible servant to the South Adelaide Football Club."

"I urge all members and supporters to get down to Flinders University Stadium on Saturday afternoon to not only help get the boys over the line, but to also farewell two club legends [Nick Liddle and Brad Crabb] in their last game at Noarlunga."

Over his 180 plus games for the Panthers, Liddle has been named in the Advertiser Team of the Year seven times over his ten seasons. 

"It was a very, very tricky decision after being here for 10 years" Said Liddle on Tuesday night to his teammates. 

"I absolutely love the footy club, but I don't feel that I can give you boys, the club, what you deserve in training and things like that." 

"I want to thank the coaching staff, for all that you have done for me over the journey, the support staff and all the boys who have been there, along with my lovley wife Jess"

"You guys are a really close bunch, and if you can stick together and have the comradery that you've got, then there's no reason why you couldn't win a flag, which the club so much deserves"

In his first year in 2010, Liddle was named the as the 'Players Player' showing the class he has as a person. He would go on to take out the award a further three times in 2011, 2012 & 2018.

"Nick has been unbelievable for this football club both on and off the field." said Senior Coach Jarrad Wright.

"It's always a sad day when one of the greats decide to finish up."

"Nick's a humble guy so he wont like me talking much about his accolades, but his individual success that he's had over his career speaks volumes to the amount of hard work he puts in"

The South Adelaide Football Club would like to wish Nick and Jess all the very best for the future, and sincerely thanks Nick for his service to the club.

South Adelaide vs North Adelaide
Round 17 - Flinders University Stadium - 18/08/19

South Adelaide 4.2 8.5 12.7 15.9 99
North Adelaide 0.1 0.4 1.5 2.8 20


Goals: McKinnon, Davis, Wilkinson 3, Fitt 2, Cross, Overall, Karpany, Irra
Best: Karpany, Haines, Davis, Overall, McKinnon, Cailotto
Injuries: Nil
Attendance: 931

The Panthers keep their finals dreams alive with a dominant 79-point victory over North Adelaide on super-soaked Sunday at Flinders University Stadium.

In what is best described as a team with "21 contributors"; the Panthers put on one of their best performances for the season to set up the 15.9 (99) to 2.8 (20) victory.

South Adelaide managed to keep the visitors goalless for almost three quarters; with the Roosters first goal coming in the twenty-fourth minute of the third quarter.

More importantly; the win sees the Panthers sit just one win behind both fifth placed Norwood and fourth placed Sturt with just one game left.

It did not take long for the Panthers to get on the scoreboard; with Emmanuel Irra (11 disposals and three marks) kicking truly after just three minutes of play.

However, battling against the Roosters as well as the tough conditions; it wouldn't be until the seventeenth minute mark that Malcolm Karpany (24 disposals, five marks and five tackles) would follow up with the Panthers second of the game.

Victor Harbor product, Jesse McKinnon kicked truly just minutes later to join the goal kickers. McKinnon would go on to collect 21 disposals, three marks, four tackles and six clearances in one of his best displays for the Panthers.

In the dying stages; Abe Davis (19 disposals, six marks and 12 hit outs) booted his first of the game to send the Panthers into the first break with a 4.2 (26) to 0.1 (1) lead.

While the forward line was performing well; the backline was also playing brilliantly.

Continuing his standout season was Joe Haines with 31 disposals, eight marks, four tackles and seven rebound 50s.

Also causing headaches for the opposition was Ben Haren who collected 19 disposals, five marks and created plenty of chances with eight rebound 50s.

Coming out after the first break; Joel Cross (15 disposals, five marks and four tackles) kicked truly to give the Panthers their first goal of the second quarter.

Not long later; Davis followed up with his second of the game before Liam Fitt (ten disposals, seven tackles and four marks) got on the board with his first.

Meanwhile, Reece Milsom was busy around the ground, gathering 19 disposals, three marks and four tackles. Also busy was Matt Rose with 24 disposals, five tackles and four clearances.

A booming goal by Davis in the dying stages sent the Panthers into the main break with a very promising 8.5 (53) to 0.4 (4) lead.

The halftime break was at the perfect time; as the players narrowly dodged a hailstorm that rained down during the break.

Braving the tough elements for another quarter; it was McKinnon who open the scoring for the second half with his second goal of the match.

Just two minutes later, Fitt followed up with his second goal of the game as the Panthers continued to make the most of their momentum.

Local product Eamon Wilkinson (12 disposals, five tackles) kicked truly to get his first senior level goal for the Panthers; before a free kick would see the Roosters manage their first goal of the game at the twenty-fourth minute mark of the third quarter.

Wilkinson continued his impressive performance in just his second game; with his second goal of the game in the dying stages of the third to send the Panthers into the final break with a 12.7 (79) to 1.5 (11) lead.

Coming out after the last break for one more quarter in the could conditions; Sam Overall (19 disposals, seven marks and eight tackles) kicked truly to add a goal to his impressive set of stats.

Wilkinson continued his run; with the ball skidding over the line to signal his third goal of the match.

Midway through the last, North Adelaide would manage their second goal of the game before McKinnon could boot his third of the match.

The siren would sound in the freezing conditions to signal the Panthers impressive 15.9 (99) to 2.8 (20) win to keep the Panthers final dreams alive.

Sitting just one game out of the finals with just one game to go; South Adelaide face Adelaide in a do or die clash at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday, August 24 from 2:10pm in what is inspiration leader Bradley Crabb's last home game for the Panthers.

The equation for September football looks like this; South need to win on Saturday and rely on Norwood (who face West Adelaide on Friday night) and/or Sturt (who face Glenelg on Saturday afternoon) to drop points.

South Adelaide Reserves push their winning streak to three following a convincing 55-point victory over North Adelaide in tough conditions at Flinders University Stadium.

The Panthers booted ten second half goals to the visitors two; to set up the 15.4 (94) to 5.9 (39) win.

It was North Adelaide who drew first blood after just three minutes of play.

However, Brett Kennedy (16 disposals and four marks) was able to reply for the Panthers with their first goal of the game.

Just three minutes later; Jack Fitzgerald (nine disposals and two marks) was on the board with his first goal of the game as well.

The Panthers continued to make the most of the momentum; with Kennedy following up at the seventeenth minute mark to get his second goal of the game.

This late goal saw the Panthers head into the first break with a very accurate 3.0 (18) to the visitors 1.0 (6).

Coming out after the first break; the Panthers wasted no time with Robert Badger (ten disposals, four tackles) kicking truly after just thirty seconds of play.

However, North Adelaide would reply with back to back goals in just two minutes before Kennedy could steady the side with his third goal of the game.

Heading into the main break; the Panthers held a narrow 5.0 (30) to 3.3 (21) lead and had plenty of work to do to ensure victory.

With just a nine-point lead; the Roosters struck first, kicking the first two goals to start the third quarter.

However, this would be the last goals that North Adelaide would kick for the remainder of the match.

Kyle Emery (18 disposals, five marks and three tackles) would kick his first of the game and set things in motion for the Panthers.

Cam McGree (11 disposals and 22 hit outs) kicked truly to join the growing list of goalkickers while Badger goaled late in the quarter to get his second of the day.

Going into the final break with an 8.3 (51) to 5.7 (37) the Panthers still had some work to do to get their third straight victory.

After just four minutes of play; Mark Noble (29 disposals, ten marks and three tackles) joined the goal kickers with his first.

Kennedy followed up just four minutes later with his fourth goal of the game while Emery followed suit just one minute later with his second.

Emery continued this momentum through to the final siren; kicking another three goals before the final siren to put his goal tally to five for the match.

In the dying stages of the game; James Lonergan (18 disposals, three marks and five tackles) kicked truly from a fair way out to bump the Panthers lead up to 55 points.

Sitting just one win below fifth; the Panther Reserves now face Central Districts at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday, August 24 from 11:15am.

South Adelaide vs North Adelaide
Round 17 - Flinders University Stadium - 17/08/19

South Adelaide 2.1  4.4  5.7  9.9  63
North Adelaide 2.2  2.3 4.5 5.5 35


Goals: Sladojevic 3, Draper, Freitag 2, Hamilton, Ryan 
Best: Clifton, Draper, Douglass, Freitag, Sladojevic, Sampson

South Adelaide Under-18s lock up a spot in September with a soild performace over the Roosters in Saturday's Sammy D Medal match. 

At the start of Round 17, South Adelaide. Glenelg and North Adelaide were all on 9 wins for the year with only percentage separating each team.

Two clubs will make finals and one will miss. It was the penultimate game for us as we returned to Flinders University Stadium to take on North Adelaide, who were one of the teams that we are fighting for a finals spot with, it was a must win game to say the least.

We had two forced changes to our side this week with Jason Horne missing due to injury and Liam Nye, who was unfortunately injured Thursday night at training.

Into the side came Lachlan Williams back from the reserves and Lachlan Bahnisch who played his first Under-18 game for South after preforming well in our under 17 program.

We lost the toss again and went against the breeze, we had the first couple of opportunities to score, but couldn't convert.

North kicked the first before Daniel Sladojevic kicked our first in the ninth minute. Over the remainder of the quarter, we had more inside 50's then North, but everytime they went forward, they seemed to score.

We went into quarter time one-point down which was a good result considering the wind.

In the second quarter we had the wind and played the game in our front half. We had multiple opportunities and again couldn't make the most of it.

We did sore two goals through Liam Hamilton and Arlo Draper.

The positive was our defence kept North to only one point to give us a 14-point lead at the main change.

Our third quarters have not been our best this season, so the challenge was there for us to extend our lead not let the opposition back in.

Most of the disposals were even for the quarter, we were on top in clearances but North started to get some run and handball receives.

We both had the same amount of scoring shots, North just converted better than we did.

Our half time lead was cut back to just eight points going into the last quarter.

The Breeze was the same in the last quarter, so we expected to come home strong.

The key was an early goal, Ben Ryan marked and goaled in under two minutes and the boys were up and about.

The quarter ended with Damon Freitag and Sladojevic both having a couple of shots on goal, kicking one each

It wasn't our prettiest win, but effective and for a short while we moved into second before West Adelaide won over Glenelg taking it back.

The annual Sammy D Medal was awarded to the player who displays the most Courage, Commitment, and Spirit throughout the game, much like Sam Davis

Captain Aaron Douglass was awarded the Sammy D Medal for the qualities that he showed in Saturdays game. 

Next week we are back to Elizabeth to face Central District in the last game of the minor round, we will need to continue our winning form to have some momentum heading into finals.

Congratulations to the Cardijn College and the South Adelaide players who won a Grand Final last Wednesday night.

Sammy D Stars - City to Bay 2019

Posted by Jonathon Parker on 17 August 2019
Sammy D Stars - City to Bay 2019

South Adelaide's Kingston will take part in the 2019 City to Bay to help raise funds to support the work of the Sammy D Foundation. 

The South Adelaide Football Club is proud to announce that club mascot, Kingston the Panther will be taking part in the City to Bay to raise funds for club charity partner, The Sammy D Foundation. 

In today's Under-18 match against the Roosters, the annual Sammy D Medal will be awarded to the player who displays the most Courage, Commitment, and Spirit throughout the game.

Past winners include Tom Sparrow, Bailey Snelling, and Tyler Davies to name a few. 

In 2008, South Adelaide Under-18 player Sam Davis fell victim to 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.

The 2019 Sammy D Medal marks 10 years since it was first presented.

South Adelaide Mascot Kingston the Panther is taking part in the City to Bay fun run for the second straight year. 

As part of Kingstons journey, he is raising money to help the Sammy D Foundation continue the outstanding work they do. 

Help Support Kingston here
