Nick Liddle claims 2018 R.O Shearman Medal

South Adelaide ball magnet Nick Liddle has been awarded the 2018 R.O Shearman Medal at last night's annual SA Football Hall of Fame and Magarey Medal dinner at Adelaide Oval.

Liddle racked up an impressive 99 votes to claim his first R.O Shearman Medal in emphatic fashion, polling 20 more votes than runner-up Matt Panos from Norwood (79). 

The fiery redhead enjoyed another stellar season with the Panthers, averaging a team-high 25.8 touches per game and kicking 17 goals through his 19 games in 2018.

The evergreen Liddle, who has now played 173 games for South since being recruited from Coburg in 2010, joins current teammates Joel Cross (2015 & 2017) as the only two South Adelaide players to be bestowed the medal since its inception in 2000.

Second-year Panther Abe Davis (52 votes) and ruckman Keegan Brooksby (45) also polled well to finish in the top 10 for voting.

The R.O. Shearman Medal is named after five-time Sturt premiership player Bob Shearman and recognises the player judged best afield by the league's coaches.

Starting in 2000, the R.O. Shearman Medal is voted by each SANFL senior coaches on a 5-4-3-2-1 vote system to judge best players following each minor round game they contest.

Liddle's consistent season was also recognised by the League's umpires, as he collected 22 votes in the Magarey Medal count to finish equal third from eventual winner Mitch Grigg (Norwood - 26 votes) and runner-up Travis Schiller (Central - 24 votes).

Big-bodied midfielder Davis also benefited from an injury free second season, polling 11 votes in his final five games to climb to fifth on the leaderboard, while co-captains Brooksby (10) and Cross (12) also attracted votes.

Earlier in the evening former South Adelaide General Manager and Glenelg stalwart, Harry Kernahan was inducted into the SA Football Hall of Fame.

League Match Report

South Adelaide vs North Adelaide
Elimination Final - Adelaide Oval - 02/09/18

South Adelaide 3.3 4.5 9.9 10.10 70
North Adelaide 1.3 7.4 8.6 14.6 90


Goals: Overall, Haren, Cross 2, Brooksby, Fields, Kreuger, Rankine
Best: Cross, Brooksby, Liddle, Crabb, Summerton
Injuries:

South Adelaide's season has come to an end after being overrun by a plucky Roosters outfit on Sunday afternoon.

The two sides played out a pulsating Elimination Final battle at Adelaide Oval, but it was the boys from Prospect who came out on top after a run of goals in the fourth quarter undid the Panthers by 20 points.

Both teams enjoyed time in the lead, but South eventually succumbed to a 10.10 (70) to 14.6 (90) defeat.

South started the better side, kicking the first goal through a crafty snap around the body by Ben Haren that dribbled through a vacant goal square from 40m out.

High-flying forwards Nathan Kreuger and Lewis Hender traded goals, before Matt Rankine gave the Panthers a two-goal buffer at the first change.

However, the second quarter was played entirely on the Roosters terms.

North kicked six unanswered goals, four to former Power listed big man Mitch Harvey, before Panthers co-captain Keegan Brooksby could finally peg one back right on the siren for halftime.

All of a sudden the lead was three goals to North's favour and it looked a different game.

Panthers mentor Jarrad Wright and his coaching panel made some structural changes over the major break and his side looked a different team in the third.

Tom Fields connected from distance within a minute of the restart and the Panthers sparked into life.

Brooksby started to click with his fellow skipper Joel Cross and Nick Liddle at the restarts and repeat clearances converted into repeat scores.

Cross weaved his way through traffic to bang home his first, before Sam Overall regained the lead shortly after.

A deft touch from Liddle set up Ben Haren shortly after and in the blink of an eye South had a two-kick advantage and looked right back in the contest.

Roosters captain Max Thring did pull the sides level midway through the term, but the Panthers still had the run of the play.

Four consecutive behinds followed by Cross' second after the siren gave South a nine-point buffer heading into the final stanza.

Sadly for South, this lead would be short lived, as North piled on six goals to one in the last quarter to knock the Panthers out of the premiership race.

It was a disappointing end to an exciting first season under new head coach Wright that saw a return to the finals and several up-and-coming League players unleashed throughout the season.

Best on the day was the fearless Cross, who gathered 29 touches in his trademark relentless fashion to go with two goals.

Not far behind was the work in the centre square of Brooksby (16 touches, 37 hit-outs and a goal) and Liddle (22 possessions and six tackles).

Backmen Brad Crabb and Jake Summerton also fought admirably against North's tall forwards in a backline that was at times under immense pressure.

Under-18s Match Report

South Adelaide vs Eagles
Second Semi Final - Maughan Thiem Hyundai Oval - 01/09/18

South Adelaide 3.3 4.5 9.5 11.6 72
Eagles 3.1 5.5 8.6 12.7 79


Goals: Sladojevic, Tarca 3, Bogle 2, Freitag, Coleman, Milsom
Best: Sparrow, Sladojevic, Manuel, Lovering, Tarca, Bogle

Our Under-18s suffered a narrow loss to Woodville-West Torrens in their Second Semi Final on Saturday afternoon. 

After the Eagles locked in top spot and we secured second, our Second Semi Final clash was a rematch of the last round of the year, which was also played at Woodville. 

We had the first couple of shots for the day but didn't convert. Eagles got hold of the ball and transitioned to kick the first two goals of the game.

We kicked the next three through Reece Milsom, Damon Freitag and Jake Tarca to go into the first break two points up.

The second quarter the Eagles came out hard, kicking the first two goals again.

We were worried it was going to be a repeat of last weeks game where they blew the game open, but to the credit of our boys that was the length of their run.

We managed to bottle the game up for a bit until we hit back through Tate Coleman. We went into the main break only six point down.

After halftime we made some positional changes, with Jake Tarca going into the midfield again which made an impact.

Our tackle pressure increased and we started to get more of the ball. We looked like we could take control of the game as we kicked five goals to Eagles three. The last of their majors coming on the siren. We believed we had momentum going into the last quarter.

The last quarter we started well with Daniel Sladojevic and Luke Bogle kicking goals, which put us 18 points up.

However, that is when we stopped. Eagles came back kicking the last four goals to win by seven points.

I was proud of the players for the game they played, and it could have gone either way, but we let them kick four goals in eight minutes to end the game.

We now play Norwood and win to next week in the Preliminary Final to get another go at the Eagles in the Grand Final.

Betta Teams: Elimination Final - South Adelaide vs North Adelaide

South add options for do-or-die clash with Roosters

South Adelaide have added a trio of options to replace running defender Tyson Brown in their Elimination Final clash with North Adelaide on Sunday.

Brown was concussed after a heavy knock to the head against Norwood in Round 19, needing to be taken to hospital by ambulance, and was not cleared to face the Roosters at Adelaide Oval.

The Panthers have added three potential replacements to a squad of 23.

Silky-skilled youngster Hayden Sampson would be a like-for-like replacement adding run off of half back, while the big-bodied duo of Anthony Biemans and Adam Hunter would add further grunt to South's engine room.

All three have been named on an extended interchange that also includes crafty utility Matt Rankine and wispy forward Cody Szust.

See the full teams below - brought to you by Hilton's Betta Home Living - McLaren Vale.

South's Under-18s travel to Woodville for their Second Semi Final against the Eagles on Saturday afternoon. Click here to see the named squad.
