Former Sydney Swan Abe Davis Joins South Adelaide

South Adelaide are pleased to announce the signing of former Sydney Swans utility Abe Davis for the 2017 season.

Davis, a 20-year-old product the Swans Academy, has spent the past two seasons in the AFL system after being drafted by Sydney with the 70th pick of the 2014 Draft.\

"Abe comes to us after two strong seasons with Sydney's NEAFL side after previously coming through the ranks of their Academy program," said South Adelaide Senior Coach Garry Hocking.

"We see him filling a role for us in the forward line, but are excited by his flexibility and are keen to see what he can also offer us in the midfield and defence - he really can play all three parts of the ground.

"He is fitting in really well with the guys. He's good mates with Adam Gulden, having played junior football together in Sydney, while he is also showcasing why Sydney's leadership programs are so highly regarded in the AFL with his voice and direction on the training track."

A big-bodied utility, Davis showcased his versatility with the Swans NEAFL side over the past two seasons, playing as a wingman/half-forward and also spending some time in defence.

Davis is also the older brother of Adelaide Crow, Ben Davis who was selected with pick 75 of this year's National Draft.

Meanwhile, also currently at pre-season training with the Panthers are former South Adelaide junior and Adelaide Crows SANFL key forward Nick Mott and former Sturt and Mt Compass premiership player Adam Hunter.

Both Mott and Hunter were named to the 2016 State Country squad that took on WA State Country at Adelaide Oval earlier this year.
