Two More Panthers Bolster South Adelaide Midfield

9 November 2017

South Adelaide continues to bolster its midfield as Ben Heaslip and Adam Hunter sign on for 2018.

Former Panthers Under-18s captain Ben Heaslip returns after a strong 2017 season that saw him solidify his spot in South's best 21.

The big-bodied on-baller added 16 games to his League tally, gathering 15.9 touches per contest and claiming the 2017 Most Improved Player Award at the Knuckey Cup.

After making his senior debut on Good Friday 2015, Heaslip claimed the 2015 David Kantilla Memorial Trophy (Best First Year League Player) and has since notched 24 top flight games.

Adam Hunter joined the club in 2017 after playing a key role in Mount Compass' drought-breaking 2016 GSFL A Grade Premiership and previously playing one League game for Sturt.

A hard-running and skillful wingman, Hunter played 14 senior games in 2017, averaging 15.8 possession a game, before a hip ailment and hand injury curtailed the latter stages of his season.

We look forward to seeing both men back in action in the blue and white in 2018!

The boys are on board to be #StrongerTogether in 2018...are you?
