The South Adelaide Football Club is saddened to hear the recent passing of former player Kevin Griffiths.

Kevin was recruited from the Teachers College to South Adelaide Football Club in 1971.

His first game was Round 8 vs North Adelaide 22/05/1971.

At the beginning of his football journey, Kevin was an elegant ruckman who later in his career switched to the forward pocket. He played 28 games from 1971 - 1973.

Kevin went on to having a succesful cricket career, winning a Bradman Medal. He was well respected within the cricket community.

He joined the Board at Adelaide Oval SMA as a Director; and as a member of Finance, Audit & Risk Committee. In addition to this, he was a previous member of the SACA Board and the Cricket Australia Board.

Professionally, Kevin completed a Doctor of Philosophy in Education at Western Michigan University. His career pathway followed into leadership management and team building, when he established KRG Consulting in 1988.

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