It wasn't long until he earnt his first League opportunity after getting the call up in Round 3, 1967 against Norwood.
After playing all the remaining games in 1967, he went on to be named the Best First Year Player.
In 1968 Craig was selected as part of the state squad.
Craig would play 206 League matches from 1967 to 1978.
In 1976 he would be inducted as a South Adelaide Life Member and a SANFL Life Member in 1978.

Outside of Football, Craig went on to be come the General Manager of Business Relations for ETSA Utilities (SA Power Networks).
The thoughts of everyone at the South Adelaide Football Club are with Craig's family, friends, teammates and all that remember him fondly on and off the football field.

A record five Panthers were selected in the 2019 NAB AFLW Draft on Tuesday morning.
South Adelaide Football Club congratulates its coaches, staff and players for the continuing success of its female football program.
South Adelaide CEO Neill Sharpe said after winning the past two SANFLW premierships and four U17 titles in a row it was extremely pleasing to see another four young women join AFLW Clubs and another two retained on AFLW lists.

"It's exciting for the Panthers to yet again have the No. 1 South Australian player selected in the AFLW Draft with Montana McKinnon joining last year's No. 1 Nikki Gore at the Crows.
"Hannah Munyard, like Nikki and Montana, has come through our junior pathway and is a determined footballer. Nicole Campbell and Cheyenne Hammond have come a bit later to our Club and football but their drive and commitment to improvement has been duly rewarded."
"It's also great to see Lisa Whiteley and Courtney Gum re-drafted and continue to make the most of their opportunity. While there is still plenty of hard work ahead of them all, they and their families should be very proud."
Panther Premiership Coach Rick Watts was also proud of the Club's female football program and what it has been able to achieve.
"As a club we've fully embraced women's football and we've given our players the best chance to develop. It's a really proud moment to see the development of these players, after all the hard work they have put in from when we had our first session to now is fantastic."
Encouragingly for the Panthers there is still a lot of young talent coming through its underage program, which augurs well for the 2020 season.
"The reality is that we wouldn't be able to make the investment we do in female football without the sponsorship support. The girls have certainly earnt the right to have an elite program.
"The challenge of course is still our changeroom facilities, but we are continuing to work with the SANFL and all levels of Government to find a solution."
If you would like to add your support as a sponsor for 2020 please contact Jonathon Parker (email@example.com or 08 8186 8200) or to make a tax deductible donation to our Female Player Pathway click here.

A quintuplet of past South Adelaide champions were inducted into the SAFC Hall of Fame on Saturday night.
At the 2019 Knuckey Cup, four past South Adelaide champions were rightfully inducted into the South Adelaide Football Club Hall of Fame.
In the first round of inductions since 2015, a former captain and the winner of the 1980 Knuckey Cup, Shane Butler was the first to be inducted on the night.
After a stellar career that spanned 12 seasons across 285 games that placed him second on the all-time list of the most games played behind Stuart Palmer, Butler was recognized for his contribution to the football club.
The North Gambier product who was a fierce competitor across the centreline or half forward flank, Butler arrived in 1977 were he would go on to play in four-night Premierships in 1978, 1979, 1984 and 1986.
He remains arguably one of the best footballers in South Australia to never be selected to represent his state.

The final inductee into the South Adelaide Hall of Fame was another former captain in John Schneebichler.
Schneebichler encapsulated football in the 80s, with a lace-up jumper, tight shorts and of course a glorious mustache.
He was workmanlike and a thoroughly dependable league footballer who enjoyed a successful 13-season career with the Panthers, where he rose through the ranks before making his senior debut in 1975.
After making his debut, and playing in the 1979 Grand Final Schneebichler went on to represent South Australia on two occasions in 1983 & 1984
For his final three years at South Adelaide, Schneebichler was named captain before moving to Glenelg in his last season of League football in 1988.
The South Adelaide Football Club would like to congratulate Shane, Alf, Ron and John on their deserved induction into the South Adelaide Hall of Fame.

South Adelaide vs Glenelg
Grand Final - ACH Group Stadium - 15/09/19
Goals: Charlton 3, Nicolle, Mills, Radbone, Wilson
Best: Charlton, Kraft, Schirmer, Buethke, Wilson, Allison
The South Adelaide Under-17 girls claimed their fourth consecutive Statewide Super Talent Shield by 30-points against Glenelg.
A strong second half display by the Panthers in which they kicked five goals to Glenelg's one after halftime; ensured South Adelaide's 7.7 (49) to 3.1 (19) victory.
"What a way to finish off our season! The assistant coaches and myself knew the girls were close to showcasing their full potential and they definitely showed it on the big stage" Panthers Head Coach Ryan Skouburg said after the match.
"Credit to Glenelg as they cashed in early and were able to transition the ball forward quickly, however once again our backline stood up and defended well" he said.
"Honestly, I'm so proud of this group of wonderful young ladies as they showed a great attitude, strong work ethic and a resilience I haven't seen before in a team" he said.
"Thank you to all the support staff as well for a wonderful program" he said.
The Panthers had plenty of the ball in the first quarter but failed to capitalise; with the Tigers booting the first goal of the match from the boundary.
With both teams showing signs of nerves; it was the pace of Gypsy Schirmer and Tahlita Buethke that were the main stand outs for the quarter as the Panthers pushed for their first major.
It wasn't until a familiar name in Teah Charlton kicked truly while on the run that the Panthers had their first goal of the match which came in the dying stages of the first quarter.
Coming out of the first break with a narrow 1.2 (8) to 1.0 (6) lead; it was the Panthers that struck first.
However, the Tigers began to dominate the rest of the quarter with very fast ball movement.
Luckily for the Panthers; Rylee Jozwa, Rayne Rivalland and Ella Thomas showed their composure down back as the Panthers managed to repel most of Glenelg's attacks.
But refusing to go down easy, the Tigers managed to sneak one through late to send the Panthers into the main break with once again a very narrow margin, 2.2 (14) to 2.0 (12).
South Adelaide U17s Assistant Coach Sam Pratt said "Glenelg started strong in the first half until we put our foot on the pedal. There were magical passages of play; strong talent coming through".
And this strong talent was on display in the third quarter; with a clever assist setting up Charlton dead in front of goal to get her second of the game.
South Adelaide started putting immense pressure on the Tigers; with an interception allowing Ella Radbone to run into an open goal.
Meanwhile; Schirmer and Buethke continued to show their pace and awareness as they disrupted and intercepted countless Tiger plays.
Natasha Allison was another stand out for the Panthers as they entered the final break with a handy 5.3 (33) to 2.1 (13) lead.
Refusing to take their foot of the pedal; a goal on the run sent the Panthers lead up to six goals as South Adelaide looked to be in complete control.

Emogen Johnson finished off her stand out season with another impressive display while Christies Beach product Neriah Mills also played well.
The team combined to play their best game this season; it wasn't until the very end of the quarter that Glenelg booted their first goal since the second quarter.
"I think we fought really well and never dropped our heads which was really good. It made it a very enjoyable game and can't wait for next season" Rayne Rivalland said post-game.
The siren sounded to give the Panthers their fourth straight StateWide Super Talent Shield in what is a very positive sign for the South Adelaide Football Club's future.

South Adelaide vs Eagles
Grand Final - Adelaide Oval - 15/09/19
Goals: Sladojevic, McCreery 2, Ryan, Kraemer, Draper, Horne, Clifton
Best: Horne, Copley, McCreery, Draper, Douglass
A costly first half sees the Panthers fall to a heartbreaking 23-point loss in this years U18 Grand Final at Adelaide Oval on Sunday.
Despite kicking the first two goals of the match; South Adelaide could not manage to hold on to the momentum as the Eagles booted eight first half goals to set up the 12.11 (83) to 9.6 (60) loss.
After halftime, the Panthers did manage to outscore the Eagles, however, it wasn't enough for the Panthers to overcome the Eagles.
The signs looked good early; with Benjamin Ryan (six disposals and three inside 50s) kicking truly after just a minute of play.
Then just two minutes later; Max Clifton (nine disposals and three tackles) followed up to give the Panthers a strong double-digit lead.
The Eagles would kick their first goal at the fifth minute mark; and this would be the last goal kicked for both sides until the Eagles followed up again midway through the quarter.
Not to be outdone; Arlo Draper (14 disposals and three tackles) steadied the side with a goal late in the first.

But it was not enough; as the Eagles booted three goals in just four minutes to head into the first break with a 5.2 (32) to 3.1 (19) lead over the Panthers.
This small run of momentum to finish the first quarter would prove to be the deciding factor; as it put the Panthers on the back foot early and meant they would spend the rest of the game playing catch-up.
The second quarter saw the game become more of a struggle, but the Eagles managed to kick the first goal of the quarter after ten minutes of play.
The Panthers had to battle against immense pressure; with the Eagles collecting 75 tackles to the Panthers 50.
Beau McCeery (14 disposals and five tackles) kicked the Panthers first of the second as South looked to get back in the game.
Unfortunately, it was short lived as the Eagles would once again kick back to back goals to finish the quarter and send the Panthers into the main break facing an 8.6 (54) to 4.2 (26) deficit.
Coming out after the main break; it was McCeery who tried to spur on a Panther comeback with his second goal of the game.
Then Jason Horne followed up with his first goal of the match. Horne would go on to finish the match with a strong display which included 17 disposals, seven tackles and seven clearances.
But the Panthers weren't finished there; as Nicholas Kraemer (13 disposals and seven clearances) booted his first goal of the match just two minutes later.
Meanwhile, in what was two impressive displays for the Panthers; Talon Copley was busy gathering 15 disposals, four marks and five rebound 50s while Zac Dumesny was also busy collecting 21 disposals, five marks and three clearances.
However, South Adelaide would once again allow the Eagles to break free in the dying stages; as once again the Eagles booted back to back goals to end the quarter and send South into the final change facing a 10.9 (69) to 7.5 (47) deficit.
Daniel Sladojevic (nine disposals and four contested marks) booted his first of the match to start the final quarter but once again the Eagles responded with back to back goals.
Despite losing the inside 50s 36 to 47; the Panthers did manage to win the rebound 50s 35 to 26. While the evenly matched teams saw them, both tie the contested marks (15 to 15) and clearances (37 to 37).
Sladojevic did respond with his second goal of the game but it was too little too late for the Panthers as the siren sounded to end the Panthers nine game winning streak in the final game of the year.
Nonetheless, despite finishing runners-up; it does show the great young talent and depth at the Panthers disposal and a positive sign for the years ahead at South Adelaide.
