The South Adelaide Football Club is saddened to learn of the recent passing of former player Craig Cock.

Craig began his football journey with Forbes Primary School before being recruited to South Adelaide from Westminster College in 1967. 

He was a versatile player, who played every position on the field except ruck, rover and full-forward, but made a name for himself as a defender.

It wasn't long until he earnt his first League opportunity after getting the call up in Round 3, 1967 against Norwood. 

After playing all the remaining games in 1967, he went on to be named the Best First Year Player. 

In 1968 Craig was selected as part of the state squad. 

Craig would play 206 League matches from 1967 to 1978. 

In 1976 he would be inducted as a South Adelaide Life Member and a SANFL Life Member in 1978.

After his stellar career, he would win the Madigan Medal as the Best and Fairest Player of the Spencer Gulf Football League with South Augusta in 1981.

Outside of Football, Craig went on to be come the General Manager of Business Relations for ETSA Utilities (SA Power Networks).

The thoughts of everyone at the South Adelaide Football Club are with Craig's family, friends, teammates and all that remember him fondly on and off the football field.
