Crabby Joins the 150 club

Panthers skipper Brad Crabb is set to join a select few to don the famous blue and white jumper for 150 senior games when he takes the field against Norwood this weekend.

Crabb has been with South Adelaide since joining the Club's Under-17s program in 2003 from Kangaroo Island Football League side Western Districts.

"Crabby has been a great Ambassador for this football club since working his way through our junior program," said Panthers CEO and Football Manager, Neill Sharpe.

Sharpe also notes that since making his League debut against Central District in 2007, Crabb has grown not only as a player but also as a leader.

He is widely respected and liked as a person, but most importantly that respect has grown as a footballer that has seen some challenging years during his involvement," said Sharpe.

"His peers have certainly acknowledged his commitment to the Club by nominating him to be Club Captain the past two seasons and last year he made the Advertiser Team of the Year at Full Back and finished equal third in our best and fairest, which highlights his progression as a player."

Sharpe also noted that in the 140 years since South Adelaide's formation that not many players have had the priviledge to play 150 games for the Club.

"Of the 1700 plus players to represent South Adelaide the number to play over 150 games is not great," explained Sharpe.

"Brad should feel some great pride in that personal achievement, but I know his motivation is some real team success for this Club."

In fact, Crabb becomes only the 36th Panther to hit the 150 game milestone. Somewhat ironically the last player to hit 150 the mark was Ben Warren, who will be leading Norwood against Crabb this Saturday from the coaches box, in 2010.
