Lindsay Backman - 2002 - The "Greatest South Adelaide Team"

Winner of the McCallum Medal for Best and Fairest in the U17 competition in 1960, Lindsay Backman graduated to league football in the following year, beginning a 203 game career with the Panthers.

During that time he played a significant role in the 1964 Grand Final win over Port Adelaide, where Merv Agars in his report of that match in The Advertiser said that 'in attack, it was the pace, brilliance and elusiveness of centreman Lindsay Backman that Port could not subdue.'

Overcoming a knee injury in 1966 and playing most of his matches across centre or in the forward lines, Lindsay amassed 347 goals for the Panthers during his career, topping South's goalkicking on 5 occasions.

In 1970 he won the Knuckey Cup, captained South Adelaide and represented the state in the same year.

Remembered for his smooth ball handling ability, excellent disposal and speed even in the wet Lindsay played 13 years with South before retiring in 1972.
