ASF Release First $20,000 for South's Junior Development Fund

By Matt Sampson | @msamps23

South Adelaide Football Club is pleased to reveal that the Club has received its first instalment of donations to the Junior Development Fund from the Australian Sports Foundation, with a $20,000 cheque arriving at the Club earlier this week.

Last month, South Adelaide Chairman Andrew Luckhurst-Smith announced South Adelaide was aiming to raise $200,000 to ensure the Club's junior programs would be fully funded over the next two years.

Mr Luckhurst-Smith called upon the Club's members and supporters to make a tax deductable donation to the cause and was pleased to see many have already made a generous contribution.

"The response we have received towards the Junior Development Fund has been fantastic so far," said Mr Luckhurst-Smith.

"Our junior teams have shown significant improvement over the past five years. Meanwhile, we have seen three very talented juniors in Caleb Daniel, Sam Draper and Emmanuel Irra progress through our Talent Pathway and into the AFL system in recent years.

"The Club remains committed to continuing to nurture the growth of the talent within our recruiting zone. However, we need assistance to ensure these programs are adequately funded.

"We still have a way to go to reach our goal, but the Club is extremely thankful for the support we have already received.

"I earnestly call on anyone with an interest in the South Adelaide Football Club to consider making a tax deductable donation. Every bit counts."
