2018 Life Member Inductions

The South Adelaide Football Club congratulate Helen Franson, Andrew McIntyre & John Griffen on being Inducted as Life Members.

On Monday Night Helen Franson (pictured above left), Andrew McIntyre (pictured above right) and John Griffen (absent) were awarded life membership at the 2018 Annual General Meeting.

Helen answered an advertisement in the Messenger newspaper 12 months after the Panthers moved to Noarlunga in 1995. Helen has served as the minute Secretary to the South Adelaide Board for 8 years and to the Panther Club for 6 years. She has also been involved with fundraising efforts for the South Adelaide Cheerleaders and the 'Ladies Canteen'. However, Helens most notable role has been helping on game days in the Panther Club Canteen, and serving on the Panther Club committee for the last 12 years.

Former South Adelaide Player Andrew 'Macca' McIntyre has held a number of key Roles within the club over the journey. Macca's involvement with the Panthers extends far beyond his 39 league matches between 1981 to 1985. From 2008 to 2017 he was the Vice Chairman of the South Adelaide Board, and has been an outstanding sponsor of the Panthers with MRS Property.

John 'Griffo' Griffen began his connection with the Panthers in 1972, where he played 7 league games before being selected in an early form of the draft - National Service. He returned to the Panthers as reserves coach from 1988 to 1990. In 2004 Giffo assisted with the development squads until 2005. He would then return to the Junior Pathway by coaching the U15 Country development squad from 2010 to 2014. Griffo is an outstanding advocate of the Southern Zone, and in 2010 was made GSFL Ambassador. In 2014 Griffo was awarded a SANFL Award in recognition of over 30 years of coaching.

"Helen, Andrew and John have been, and continue to be outstanding servants of the Football Club in their various roles." "It's people like this that make a Football Club, and we thank them for their service." said Chief Executive Officer Neill Sharpe.

Congratulations Helen, Andrew and John!
