New Irra for E-Man at South Adelaide

South Adelaide is pleased to welcome Emmanuel Irra back to the club for the 2019 season.

Ugandan born Irra returns to the Panthers after spending two years on Port Adelaide's AFL list as a Category B Rookie.

"It is great to have E-Man returning to the club," said South Adelaide Senior Coach Jarrad Wright.

"Our supporters will be familiar with his exciting style of play and we look forward to him bringing that eye-catching run and carry and flair back to Noarlunga.

"He's spent the last two years in an AFL environment and played a lot of footy across halfback for the Magpies. So he's coming back to the club a more refined and experienced player than when he left us.

"We expect him to add some flexibility to our side and are excited by the prospect of injecting his explosiveness and pace into our group."

The fleet-footed Irra played 38 SANFL games for South Adelaide between 2011-16 before adding a further 33 senior appearances with the Magpies.

Irra made his SANFL debut as a raw teenage in 2011 before steadily developing his game.

He was crowned the Panthers Reserves Best & Fairest in 2014, before cementing his place in the League side and earning Most Improved Player honors the next season.

He enjoyed his best season at South in 2016 under the guidance of Brad Gotch, earning selection into the initial SANFL State Squad and culminating in becoming the first Ugandan drafted to an AFL list after being selected by the Power.

South Adelaide welcome Emmanuel back to the club and look forward to seeing him dashing across the wide expanses in Noarlunga once again.
