Two Panthers bid farewell
South Adelaide can reveal that a pair of Panthers are bidding farewell to the club.
Cult hero Jake Veide and fan favourite Alex Aurrichio will no longer be donning the blue and white guernsey in 2019.
Veide had committed to returning to the Panthers in 2019 after spending a year away from SANFL football, but has struggled through injury during the early stages of preseason.
After determining his body would not allow him to play at the high standard he has set for himself in the SANFL, Jake has sadly decided to hang them up for good after 114 games with South between 2009 - 2017 and return to community football.
Big American Alex Aurrichio has also advised the club that he will continue his football journey elsewhere this season.
Alex played eight games for five goals over two seasons in Noarlunga and quickly established himself as a fan favourite with his physical play and trademark mullet.
South Adelaide would like to thank both Jake and Alex for their contribution to the club and wish them well in the next phase of their football careers.
