Pair of Eagles fly South for 2018
Tall timber Tom Whittlesea and Jake Summerton have made the switch from Woodville-West Torrens to South Adelaide for season 2018.
Whittlesea played 24 senior games for the Eagles, kicking 13 goals before making the move to Noarlunga.
Standing 192cm, and weighing in at 88kg, the 23-year-old is a competitive lead up forward known for his attack at the ball and tackling pressure.
Summerton, 25, is a medium-tall defender (194cm, 89kg) with a great competitive spirit and aerobic capacity. He has played nine senior games for Woodville-West Torrens.
Both men have experience playing under South Adelaide's new senior coach Jarrad Wright, having been part of Eagles Reserves premiership sides in 2013 and 2014 with Wright at the helm.
Summerton was also part of Woodville-West Torrens successful Reserves Grand Final tilt in 2015, while Whittlesea appeared in the League Grand Final loss to West Adelaide in the same year. Both men also played in the Eagles 2016 Reserves Grand Final.
We look forward to the leadership and experience both men will bring with them from their involvement during a highly success period with the Eagles.
