John Schneebichler - 2019 Inductee

 

Nothing says 80s football like a high-flying forward sitting on shoulders and kicking bags of goals.

Not many have done it better for South than John Schneebichler, who kicked 351 goals in his 234 games with the Panthers.

Schneebichler was a workmanlike and thoroughly dependable league footballer who enjoyed a successful 13-season career with South Adelaide, where he rose through the ranks before making his senior debut in 1975.

Capable of playing in a variety of positions, he carried out whatever function was asked of him with a minimum of fuss and plenty of fortitude and grit. He was a member of the Panthers' losing Grand Final team against Port Adelaide in 1979, and was the club's leading goal kicker with 65 goals in 1983.

He captained South in his last three seasons at the club before making a controversial transfer to Glenelg for his final season of League football.

In addition to his club games, Schneebichler also played five times for South Australia.
