Brad Crabb signs on for 2019

South Adelaide stalwart Brad Crabb has signed on for the 2019 season.

The Kangaroo Island native has put pen to paper to extend his career with the Panthers into a 13th season.

Recruited from Western Districts in South Adelaide's country zone on Kangaroo Island, Crabb worked his way through the Panthers junior programs before making his SANFL League debut in 2007.

The strongly-built defender soon established himself within the senior team and has played a key role within the team for more than a decade.

Currently sitting 16th on the Panthers list for most League appearances all-time, Crabb is edging closer to his 200-game milestone, something that has not been achieved by a South Adelaide player since Trent Mills in the early 2000s.

Speaking to SAFC Media, Crabb cited unfinished business following the Panthers finals exit and his approaching milestone as motivators to play on.

"It was pretty disappointing the way we went out in 2018. We want to try and achieve a bit more," said Crabb.

"It would definitely be good to get to 200 games, but I still need to have a good preseason and get in the team."

Crabb also declared he was excited continue playing with close friends Joel Cross and Nick Liddle, who have also re-committed for 2019, while also helping nurture the exciting youth coming through the ranks.

"They (Cross and Liddle) are great blokes I've got to know really well. It is good to be able to do another season with them," said Crabb.

"It's funny when you're young you don't have any responsibilities, but as you get older and play a few more games you realise you actually have to be a bit more mature and lead the team a little.

"A lot of these guys coming through a really good lads I have been able to follow for a few years now (in the juniors). It should be exciting times ahead.

The club looks forward to seeing Crabby go around again and hopefully celebrating another significant achievement in an already great career in Noarlunga!
