Joel Cross claims his fourth Knuckey Cup

Joel Cross cleans up at the 2019 Knuckey Cup after another steller season.

The two time Magarey Medallist and now four time Knuckey Cup winner cemented his place as one of the best players of the modern day on Saturday night. 

The silky mover banked up 113 votes to finish five votes ahead of Joseph Haines who's break out season earned him a deserved second place. 

This marks the fourth time Cross has taken home South Adelaide's highest individual award, having won it in 2011, '15 and '16. 

Having played more minutes up forward this year, Cross also took home the leading goal kicker with 26 goals, along with the Milestone Chemicals Players player and Onsite Rental Group Fans MVP as voted by his teammates and the Panther supporters respectively. 

The evening started with four South Adelaide champions being inducted into the South Adelaide Hall of Fame, followed by Job Colwell taking out the J.L. Brown Trophy as the Reserves Best & Fairest after a great season at Reserves level.

After a great campaign, Nick Kraemer was named the 2019 Under-18 Best and Fairest. His play was a key factor in seeing the Panther juniors return to finals action in 2019.

Congratulations to all the award winners on their outstanding achievements.
