Abe Davis signs for season 2019

South Adelaide is pleased to announce that Abe Davis has re-committed to the Panthers for season 2019.

The former Sydney Swan enjoyed a break out second season in Noarlunga after an injury-restricted debut year.

The strong on-baller played all 19 games for South in 2018, racking up 23.2 touches per contest while also proving an effective weapon up front with 15 goals on the year.

Bothered by an ankle injury in 2017, Davis blossomed into one of the competitions more intimidating midfield presences in 2018, averaging 4.7 clearances and 5.2 tackles around stoppage.

His improved play did not go unnoticed, as he claimed third place in Knuckey Cup voting and stormed home to a fifth placed finish on the Magarey Medal leader board, polling 11 votes in his last six games.

"We are pleased Abe has committed for season 2019, coming of a career-best year in the SANFL," said Panthers senior coach, Jarrad Wright.

"His game really improved as he found some continuity in his football, being injury free and playing a consistent position as big-bodied midfielder.

"He became a really important player for us and has grown into one of the better big mids in the competition.

"His strength around the contest and ability to also head forward, take a catch and kick goals will be important for our team."

The Panthers also welcome Palmerston recruit Kyle Emery into the fold for 2019.

The former Gold Coast Academy member is a dangerous medium forward, who heads to Noarlunga after plying his trade in the NTFL over the past few seasons.
