Jim Deane Honoured by the Australian Football Hall of Fame

South Adelaide's Jim Deane has been inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame 

One of South Adelaide's most iconic players, James (Jim) Deane has had his outstanding playing achievements recognized by being inducted to the Australian Football Hall of Fame.

Deane won the 1953 and 1957 Magarey Medals during his League career (as well as finishing runner-up in 1949, 56 & 57), he was also awarded South Adelaide's Best and Fairest, the Knuckey Cup, on six occasions (1948, 49, 51, 53, 56 & 57).

In total Deane played 157 games for the Panthers over two stints (1945-53 and 1956-57), captaining the Club for five years (1951, 52, 53, 56 & 57) and coaching the team from 1951-53 and 1970-71.

He played mainly as a centreman, had a dynamic left foot and is acknowledged as one of the finest exponents of short and long distance passing that the game has seen.

Deane represented South Australia on 15 occasions and also enjoyed two very successful seasons with Richmond in 1954-55.

He is a member of the South Adelaide Football Club "Greatest Team Ever", South Adelaide and SANFL Hall of Fame.
