GLENELG SEASON PREVIEW
By ZAC MILBANK | Twitter @zacmilbank
New Glenelg coach Nick Stevens has expressed his excitement at the young talent he will look to develop in season 2014.
Coupled with the recruitment of key senior players, Stevens is hopeful the Tigers’ rise from bottom place last year can be swift.
Watch the video to hear from gun forward Mitch Thorp, who joined the club during summer, and small forward Andrew Hooper, who has recovered well from last year’s knee injury.

VALE DEAN BAILEY
The Glenelg Football Club is very sad to hear of the passing of past player Dean Bailey. Dean played 61 games for Glenelg between 1993 and 1996 and won the Club Best and Fairest in 1995. Dean was a strong “in and under” player with an exceptional football brain. His team mates will also remember him for his quick wit and dry sense of humour that would entertain the boys.
His football intellect provided him the opportunity to go on and have a successful coaching career at the highest level with the Melbourne and the Adelaide Football Clubs. Whilst Dean was only at Glenelg for a short time he was always willing to support and help the club in any way possible, and as recently as October was part of the panel to select our new senior coach, in which his vast football knowledge and coaching experience was invaluable.
Dean continued to have strong ties to the Glenelg Football Club with his son Darcy currently playing in our league and reserves team and his other son Mitchell as fitness coach of the under 18’s.
We pass on our deepest sympathy to Caron, Mitchell and Darcy at this difficult time and the thoughts and prayers of everyone from Glenelg are with you.
