Panthers Pounce on Trio of New Signings

South Adelaide Football Club are pleased to announce the signings of forward/utility Cameron Hitchcock, midfielder Richard Newell and defender Cameron De Visser for the 2016 IGA SANFL Season.

Hitchcock, 25, is an elusive goal sneak with experience at AFL and SANFL level after stops at Port Adelaide Power, Glenelg and Port Adelaide Magpies.

Senior Coach Brad Gotch is excited by the addition of Hitchcock having coached him during his time with the Power.

"Cam is an exciting small forward with great pace, agility and elusiveness, who had a tough run with injuries during his time in the AFL system," said Gotch.

"Losing Brent Macleod we needed another goal option and Cam adds a bit of speed, pressure and class to our forward line.

"He's keen to play at a high standard of footy after a year playing in the country and we're excited to see what he can do for us in 2016."

Newell is a 22-year-old elite runner, who also brings AFL and SANFL experience to the Panthers, having spent three years on Brisbane Lions rookie list before playing the last two seasons with West Adelaide.

"Richard has a really big engine and we think he'll be able to excel on our big ground," said Gotch.

"He was starved a bit for opportunity the past couple of years at West because of their depth, but we think we can play him in a variety of roles

"He is also an impressive young man to talk to. A good character that we think will fit in really well with our current playing group, work really hard and push others."

Former Panther Cameron De Visser also returns to Noarlunga after one season playing alongside Hitchcock with Ironbank in the Hills Football League.

"I coached Cam during my first year at South (2014) and he was really stiff to miss out on playing League towards the end of the year," said Gotch.

"He was really strong for us in the Reserves, but got injured before he could really crack the League side.

"Cam's a very versatile player who is also another great character guy that is always continuing to learn."

South Adelaide are still in ongoing discussions with several players and are hopeful of making further announcements following the AFL Pre-Season and Rookie Drafts.
