Damien Hill (Bordertown/Hahndorf) and Ben Edwards (Minlaton) are in line to make their senior debut this week. Both players have been in very good form in the reserves and have deserved their opportunity should things fall their way.
It is with great sadness that we share the news that Graeme Bignell passed away this morning.
Graeme was President of our club from 1986 – 1989, was a long time Vice President and a major benefactor over many years of the Glenelg Football Club. As a result of the these years of outstanding service and dedication to our club, Graeme became a “Great of Glenelg”, the highest official honour the Glenelg Football Club can bestow on its players or officials.
Having established Stillwell Ford in 1971, Graeme had a long and distinguished career in the automotive industry. He acted as chairman of automotive retailer Adtrans Group, the company he founded, for 23 years until 2011. During this time Graeme employed numerous players of our club, many of whom became great friends.
We offer our sincere condolences to his wife Di and their extended family.
His funeral will be at Adelaide Oval on Tuesday at 11.30am.
We have lost a great man!
