South Adelaide are sadden by the passing of Life Member Mervyn Temme.

Mervyn (Merv) began his journey with the Panthers in 1976 where he was the assistant timekeeper for the development squads, in which his two sons played. 

After a few seasons with the development squads, Merv became the drinks steward in 1981 for the Under-17s, which was followed by his appointment as the team manager for the Under-15 Development Squad in 1982.

Over 1983 and 1984 Merv moved to another new role where he was the coordinator of the Development Squads, as well as serving for two years on the Panther Zone Committee. 

Marv also served two years on the Management Committee in 1985 & 1986 and as the Under-19 and Under-17 Coordinator and Property Steward in 1987 &1988. 

By the end of the decade, Marv was team manager for the Under-15s in 1989 and Under-17s in 1990. 

In 1991 and 1992 he was Property Steward for the Under-17s, and from 1993 until 1997 served as Team Manager for the Under-19s.

He was appointed Training Operations Manager in 1998, and Property Manager-Football in 1999, a position he held until 2007.

In 1986 he received his Five Year Service Certificate, and in 1992 he was inducted as a Life Member of the South Adelaide Football Club.

Over the journey, Merv was also dedicated to the Southern Football League as a Commissioner, and SFL Tribunal Secretary.

Merv's work for the club has always been thorough and reliable, and has been typified by his willingness to do much more than any job description expects.  

It is estimated that Merv officiated at over 600 games during his time with the club, but more impressively he only missed four games.

The thoughts of everyone at South Adelaide are with his wife Mavis and the rest of his family.
