Team Annoucement - Round 5
Norwood V Glenelg - Friday May 1st at Coopers Stadium
Three changes have been made to the side that drew with Adelaide in bizarre circumstances last Friday night at Gliderol Stadium. Players Button and Agnew who were late withdrawals last week come back into the side along with exciting 16 year old Jonty Scharenberg who will be making his league debut. Jonty is a member of the AFL AIS program, he has shown outstanding form in the last few weeks in the reserves and was amongst the best players for the AIS team that played in New Zealand last weekend.
We hope to see you on Friday at Coopers Stadium at Norwood - GO BAYS!

VALE DR ROBERT PEARLMAN
The Glenelg Football Club wishes to extend its sympathy to the Pearlman family on the passing of Dr Robert Pearlman.
Robert was a club doctor from 1974-1996 and was awarded life membership in 1983. His passion and commitment to the Glenelg Football Club was exceptional. Our thoughts are with Robert’s family and friends during this time.
The family will be holding the wake here at the Glenelg Football Club from 2pm on Wednesday April 29th. All past players and officials who wish to pay their respects are welcome.
