Stuart Palmer - 2009 Inductee

Stuart Palmer is South Adelaide's games record holder, after making 337 appearances in his 17-season career with the Panthers, which included three years as captain (1982-84), two Escort Cup premierships and one state game against Queensland.

Stuart was born in England and moved to Australia at the age of five. He swiftly made his way through the Club's junior programs and made his League debut shortly before his 18th birthday in 1969, registering a goal with his first kick.

His memorable debut game was no flash in the pan and by seasons end he won the media award for Best First Year Player in the SANFL.

Standing 193cm, and weighing 86kg, Palmer was a versatile player who played in a number of positions. He was a spectacular high mark and excellent reader of the play.

Stuart was named at full back in the 1979 Grand Final side and also resided as club chairman following his retirement from football.
