Max Murdy - 2002 - The "Greatest South Adelaide Team"

Max did not play football at all until after his fifteenth birthday. However, he was a natural, and when he was asked by South Adelaide in 1932 to come and try out with them, he did so and swiftly made his league debut at the age of 16 - only one year after he started playing!

Tall for the time at 6'2.5" and a left footer, he made his mark at half-forward, particularly at half forward right where his long, raking kicks soon became a feature of his play.

Max played in what was South's most successful period of last century, being a member of the premiership sides of both 1935 and 1938. In all, he played in 147 games and kicked 275 goals for the blue and whites. He won the Knuckey Cup in 1940 and was runner-up for the Magarey Medal on three occasions.

His interstate career was just as spectacular, beginning with the state game in 1934 in which South Australia beat a star studded Victorian lineup, containing players like Haydn Bunton Snr., Dick Reynolds, Jack Dyer and Jack Regan. He went on to play another 14 games of interstate footy up until 1938.

He retired from football at his prime in 1941 to enlist in the Army.
