Nathan Daniel retires from SANFL football
South Adelaide utility Nathan Daniel has announced his retirement from SANFL football.
Recruited from Woodville-West Torrens at the end of 2010, Nathan struggled with concussion in 2016 limiting him to seven league games. Further off-season surgery on an ankle and a burgeoning stockbroking career with Taylor Collinson were all considerations in Nathan's decision.
A versatile footballer, capable of playing across all three lines, Nathan calls a time on his career having played 131 SANFL League games - 101 of them for South Adelaide after making his debut for the Panthers in 2011.
He has been a consistent performer at League level placing in the top 10 in Knuckey Cup voting in four of his six seasons at the Club, with his highest finish being 5th in 2013. In 2016 he received the Dr Jim Harley/Frank Brown Memorial Trophy for Best Clubman.
"Since his arrival Nathan has been a significant part of the on-field rebuild of the South Adelaide Football Club," said South Adelaide CEO Neill Sharpe.
"He has been a very good player at League level and even better person within our playing group, who has been highly respected. We wish him well in the future."
'I would like to thank everyone associated with the South Adelaide Football Club for making the last 6 years so enjoyable," said 27-year-old Daniel.
"I'm thankful for the opportunity to meet so many great people and be part of a motivated playing group hungry for success. I look forward to seeing the club enjoy success in the near future."
South Adelaide thanks Nathan for his outstanding service to the club and wishes him the best for his future endeavours, both on and off the field.
