Joel Cross inducted as a Life Member

Dual Magarey Medallist Joel Cross was awarded Life Membership on Saturday night.

The South Adelaide Football Club was honoured to award Joel Cross Life Membership on Saturday night, thanks to his incredible contribution to the club over the last eight seasons. 

Recruited from Scoresby Football Club in 2011, Cross has an outstanding list of accolades which includes two Magarey Medal's in 2012 (in his second season in the SANFL) and again in 2015. 

The list of accolades continues with Cross winning the Knuckey Cup three times, multiple state appearances, The Advertiser player and team of the year on multiple occasions and Club Co-Captain for the second year in a row. 

"When I look back on my time at South I'm not going to talk about money, state games or Magarey Medals, I'll always remember the friendships and the great times" Cross said in his speech.

"The friendships and the memories are the reason football clubs exist; the game is a very small part of that. If you embrace this club, this club will embrace you."

"Crabby and Lids told me that the proudest moment they have had as a player was being inducted as a life member. I can absolutely confirm that." 

The Club congratulates Joel on his fine achievements and thank him for his outstanding service.
