The South Adelaide Football Club is sadden to learn of the passing of former Captain and Hall of Fame member John Schneebichler.

He was workmanlike and a thoroughly dependable league footballer who enjoyed a successful 13-season career with the Panthers, where he rose through the ranks before making his senior debut against the Magpies in round 5, 1975 where he kicked four goals.

After making his debut, and playing in the 1979 Grand Final, Schneebichler went on to represent South Australia on two occasions in 1983 & 1984

In 1985 Schneebichler was named captain, where he would remain captain until the end of the 1987 season.

After 13 seasons, 234 games and 351 goals, Schneebichler called time as a Panther where he made the move to Glenelg in his last season of League football in 1988.

In 2019, Schneebichler cemented his spot as one of the great players to have represented the Panthers by being inducted into the South Adelaide Hall of Fame. 

The thoughts of everyone at the South Adelaide Football Club is with his wife Jenny, son Leigh, daughter in law Janna and the rest of John's family and friends.
