Redigolo and Rankine call time on SANFL careers
South Adelaide bid farewell to a pair of Panthers.
Experienced South Adelaide campaigners Tarak Redigolo and Matt Rankine have called time on their SANFL careers.
A beloved clubman during his 11 senior seasons with the Panthers, tough and uncompromising defender Redigolo announced his retirement at Saturday night's Knuckey Cup count.
Recruited from McLaren in the GSFL, Tarak's time with South Adelaide extends back to completing the club's Development Squad programs before progressing into the junior grades where he claimed the 2006 U17s Best and Fairest.
He made his senior debut in 2008 before winning South Adelaide's Reserves Best and Fairest and the Reserves Magarey Medal in 2011. He established himself as a senior player in 2012 and finished third in Knuckey Cup voting.
Admired by many at South Adelaide for his work ethic and leadership, Tarak has overcome several significant injuries to become a 100 game player with the Panthers and has served as vice captain on several occasions.
He also claimed the coveted Knuckles Award in 2012 and was named Best Clubman in 2011 and 2014.
The elusive Rankine joined the Panthers in 2014 from West Adelaide, seeking more opportunities at senior level.
He quickly established himself as a fan favourite through his penchant for the spectacular and versatility to play in a range of positions around the ground.
In his five seasons at Noarlunga, Rankine added 80 games and 53 goals to his resume to push himself past the 100 SANFL games barrier in 2018.
Senior players Alex Moyle and Matt Raitt have also informed the club they will depart Noarlunga in 2019.
South Adelaide thank each of these men for their contributions at Hickinbotham Oval and wish them well in their future endeavours, both on and off the field.
