2019 South Adelaide Indigenous Guernsey Design Revealed

South Adelaide is proud to reveal the 2019 Indigenous Guernsey to be worn against the Eagles on Saturday. 

Allan Sumner, the designer of the guernsey has captured the essence of how the Panthers connect to the southern zone. 

Sumner is a southern Indigenous artist and teaches Cultural Safety as part of the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health at Flinders University.

Acting Vice-Chancellor of Flinders University, Professor Clare Pollock said that the university is thrilled to have supported this initiative. 

"There are many ways in which we can recognise, value and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's culture, including in the sporting arena. As part of our partnership with The Panthers, we're delighted to be supporting the Indigenous round match with this specially designed guernsey. It's not just beautiful, but demonstrates how valuable sport can be in sharing knowledge and understanding and promoting reconciliation." 

The name that was given to this artwork is 'Nurlungga' or River Bend.

Being situated in Noarlunga, the Kaurna spelling Nurlungga derives from the word "Nurlu" meaning a corner or curvature referring to the nearby Onkaparinga River.

The lines bending around the top left shoulder and the right abdominal area represents the Onkaparinga River.

The large circle on the bottom left represents SAFC and the smaller circles represent the players who come from different communities connecting the club and player together.

Combined with the Kaurna Shield, the overall artwork brings together both the strength of SAFC and the spirit of the land.

The jumper will be proudly worn during this weeks clash with the Eagles at Flinders University Stadium on Saturday, July 13. 

Match-worn guernseys will be available to purchase next week. More information to come.
