Panthers Pair Retire From SANFL Football

Panthers Pair Retire From SANFL Football

Panthers 100-gamers Peter Rolfe and Xavier Gotch have announced their retirement from SANFL football.

Both South Adelaide stalwarts revealed their retirement from state league football at the Club's best and fairest on Saturday night.

Rolfe joined the Panthers in 2008, bursting onto the scene as a fresh-faced teenager from the Northern Territory.

A fan favourite for his exciting style of play, Rolfe often shone in front of goals and his Goal of the Year effort against Sturt in 2014 will go down in Panthers folklore.

Gotch was recruited to South from Williamstown in 2010 and soon blossomed into one of the competitions best midfielders.

Diminutive in height, but always tough around the contest, 'Gotchy' claimed the coveted Knuckles Award (awarded to the player that contributes the most one-percenters and team KPIs each season) in 2014 and finished third in Knuckey Cup voting in 2015.

Also departing the Club are versatile midfielder Roland Ah Chee and local recruit Rigby Barnes.

South Adelaide thanks these talented men for their contribution to the Club and wish them well in all future endeavors.
