Alfred Marlow - 2019 Inductee

Alfred 'Shaver' Marlow, who was recognised as one of the best players in the 1890s.

Marlow was noted as being a tough hard player, who could kick equally well with both feet while playing across the half-back flank.

The 1892 South Adelaide side was renowned for being extremely rough, and in that side, Marlow was the only player not to give away a free-kick.

Having a break out year in 1895, it is noted that had the Magarey Medal been introduced three years earlier, then there is a chance Marlow would have won it.

After he called time on his 15-year career including six Premierships and representing South Australia on three occasions, Marlow would go on to hold a place on the South Adelaide committee in two stints from 1905-1909 and again from 1913-1919 (1914-1918 no competition was held due to World War 1).
