Panthers pounce on Eagle Karpany

South Adelaide are pleased to announce the signing of new recruit Malcolm Karpany.

Karpany, 23, heads to Noarlunga having spent five years with the West Coast Eagles after been taken at pick 31 in the 2013 national draft.

An exciting wing-forward, with explosive pace, a penetrating kick and good evasive abilities, Karpany played seven AFL games during his time with the Eagles for six goals.

"We are very happy to be able to recruit Malcolm to the club," said Panthers senior coach Jarrad Wright.

"He is a hard-working outside runner, with a beautiful left foot and we are really excited to see the class he can bring to our team connecting between our defensive and forward halves.

"His spatial awareness and elusiveness is top class and he can also push forward and kick goals. I think our supporters will really enjoy watching him play.

"I spent some time with him at Woodville-West Torrens as Reserves coach when he was coming through the Under-18s and he was a top talent then.

"After five years with the Eagles in the AFL system his leadership and footy smarts will be a great asset both on the field, but also in working with the exciting young players we have coming up to the senior ranks."
 


Speaking on his move, Karpany said he was excited by a change of scenery and to play SANFL football.

"I am just keen to get started," he said.

The Club has really welcomed me with open arms. I am keen to get started and play alongside all these good players at League level.

"I feel like the SANFL competition is really strong. That's one thing I am excited about.

"It is also exciting to represent a new club. I feel like the move is going to be good for me. Fresh start, new people.

When asked what Panthers members and supporters can expect from him, Karpany said he was looking forward to showcasing his abilities for the Panthers.

"I think I am a crafty player with a good skill set.

"I love to run, use my pace and work rate out on a wing and also push forward."

Malcolm Karpany is #SouthProud...are you?
