October 14, 2019 - DEPARTURE OF CEO GLENN ELLIOTT
READ MORE +

Glenn has had a long and distinguished sports management career, starting with the Glenelg Football Club back in 1992 – 1995, then an extended period at North Adelaide Football Club and Adelaide United before re-joining Glenelg in the CEO position in 2016. Managing football clubs is an extremely demanding role and whilst Glenn has shown he is always up for the challenge, as demonstrated by the way he embraced the enormity of the task when he was appointed, his decision is based on wanting to spend more time with his extremely supportive wife Lois and their family.  

Glenn has many little sayings he refers to regularly, but one has been his driving force and he should be remembered for this.  

“At Glenelg Football Club we want the best players, the best coaches and the best facilities."

We certainly didn’t have that when Glenn was appointed, however we do today.  In addition to that we are in a stable financial position and can be more strategic on how the club is operated.

We would like to thank Glenn for his commitment, hard work and resilience and congratulate him on his ability to develop and excellent team on and off the field during his tenure. Ensuring Glenelg is in a much stronger place on his departure than it was when he arrived.   

The extended timeframe of this announcement will allow Glenn and the Board to implement a transition period that will provide the best opportunity for a successful and smooth succession plan in this very important position.  We will also be acknowledging Glenn formerly closer to the AGM.

White finished 2 votes ahead of Magarey Medallist Luke Partington, with the pair leading the count for the majority of the night. Only 2 points separated the duo leading into the Grand Final, with a stand-out Grand Final performance from the ruckman securing his name at the top of the final leaderboard.

Speaking on stage to the 250-strong crowd, White paid tribute to his teammates and coaches who have supported him since he joined the Bays in 2018.

"I'm so proud of this group so I wanted to give it all as a friend and a player" White said.

September 25, 2019 - GREGSON TAKES HOME SKILLED CAREERS MARK OF THE YEAR
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK FOR SANFL.COM.AU

Returning to the Tigers this season after 39 AFL games with Geelong, Gregson made the most of a perfect sit on Roosters captain Max Thring at ACH Group Stadium.

Standing at just 175cm, the 23-year-old soared high for the towering overhead mark which drew plenty of roars from the Tiger faithful on the Grandstand Wing.

Gregson’s great grab was captured perfectly by Bays club photographer Gordon Anderson, whose eye-catching photo is displayed above.

The Tigers’ No.16 – who wins a $500 cash prize – edged out former team-mate Lachie Hosie and South Adelaide’s Liam Fitt, who were the other finalists short-listed in the top three.

September 24, 2019 - BAYS ARE BACK ON THE WEST END CHIMNEY
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK FOR SANFL.COM.AU

Having basked in the club’s drought-breaking 28-point premiership win against arch-rival Port Adelaide in the 2019 Statewide Super League Grand Final, Bays fans continued their party at the annual West End Chimney ceremony at Thebarton on Tuesday.

As the sounds of ”Tigerland” bellowed out inside the Brewery’s courtyard, the hungry Brighton Road faithful lapped up the festivities as premiership coach Mark Stone paid tribute to their unwavering resilience since last tasting the ultimate success in 1986.

Then MC Mark Soderstrom handed the microphones to Ken Farmer Medallist Liam McBean and effervescent defender Michael Virgin to pay tribute to their team-mates as they entered the stage.

Both players have remarkable stories to tell themselves, considering McBean played the title-decider with a snapped plantar fascia in his foot while Virgin was 12 months ago contemplating a SANFL comeback having spent a year with PHOS Camden after leaving North Adelaide.

After a quick photo of the 21 premiership heroes on stage, it was in the laneway where they revealed the black and gold colours back on top of the West End Chimney for just the fourth time following on from 1973, 1985 and 1986. The Tigers’ first premiership in 1934 was 20 years before the West End tradition began.

In a tradition dating back more than six decades, the colours of the winning SANFL premiership side are painted on top of the iconic landmark on Port Road.

Port Adelaide great Fos Williams played a significant role in establishing the annual ritual which began in 1954 when he coached the Magpies to a hard-fought three-point win against West Adelaide in the SANFL Grand Final at Adelaide Oval.

To recognise the Bloods’ gallant effort, Williams suggested that a red stripe be painted underneath Port’s black and white colours to acknowledge the runner-up.

As a result, the tradition of painting both Grand Final teams’ colours on the West End Chimney remains despite the Brewery changing location from Hindley Street to Port Road in 1982.

Standing around 25 metres high, the Chimney has been layered with more than 1200 litres of paint since the tradition began 65 years ago.

 

September 19, 2019 - 6 TIGERS NAMED IN THE ADVERTISER TEAM OF THE YEAR
READ MORE +

Glenelg Captain Chris Curran leads the charge of players, being named skipper of the 21-man side at centre half-back. He is joined in the backline by his Vice-Captain Max proud, who continued his good form in 2019 after taking home the Tiger's Best & Fairest in 2018.

Power-forwards Liam McBean and Luke Reynolds take their place up forward following their 1-2 finish in this year's Ken Farmer Medal. McBean took home the award ahead of Reynolds by a solitary goal to finish with 46 goals in the minor round.

Magarey Medallist Luke Partington adds another accolade to a stellar 2019 season, being named in the Centre alongside Crow Partick Wilson.

Senior Coach Mark Stone earns himself the title of Coach of the Year, launching the Tigers from a 6th place finish in 2018, to Minor Premiers and a Grand Final berth in 2019.

September 16, 2019 - BAYS BOOK BERTH IN GRAND FINAL
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK FOR SANFL.COM.AU

Trailing by eight points at half-time and appearing to look heavy in the legs against a fleet-footed Crows outfit, the Bays dug deep to boot five goals to one in the third quarter as it booked a berth in the Grand Final against Port Adelaide next Sunday.

With its three key forwards – Luke Reynolds (5), Liam McBean (4) and Josh Scott (3)  – contributing 12 of the team’s 16 goals between them, Glenelg broke the game open with a defining purple patch nearing three-quarter time.

McBean, who overcame a hamstring complaint to take his place in the 21, kicked two goals in the space of as many minutes but it was his second which proved decisive.

In the clip below, Tiger Marlon Motlop paddled the ball out of the centre square to finish up beating his three Crows opponents to the 50-50 ball before handballing to Darcy Bailey, who hit up McBean on the lead.

McBean converted to give his side an 11-point lead which soon stretched to 17 once Josh Scott booted his second after clunking a strong contested mark from deep in the pack.

Minutes later the Bays’ No.15 was in agony on the ground after having the wind knocked out of him in another heavy marking contest, forcing him from the field on the verge of the final change.

Scott emerged to play a significant role in finishing off the Crows in the final term, snaring a juggled mark on the lead after a nice one-two play with Cory Gregson ended up with a neat pass to him on the lead.

The ensuing set shot finish from Scott stretched the margin out to 32 points nearing the 10-minute mark of the final term as Tiger fans began to celebrate their first finals win since the Preliminary decider against Sturt in 2008.

September 10, 2019 - PARTINGTON WINS R.O SHEARMAN MEDAL
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK FOR SANFL.COM.AU

Joining fellow Bays’ Magarey Medallist Brett Backwell who shared the Shearman Medal in 2003, Partington polled 76 votes to hold off Adelaide’s Patrick Wilson on 72 and Port Adelaide’s Jack Trengove on 69.

Sturt’s Sam Colquhoun (59) and South’s Abe Davis (56) rounded out the top five vote winners, while Panthers co-captain Joel Cross, who has won the Shearman Medal in 2015 and 2017, was placed sixth with 54 votes.

It capped a memorable night for Partington, who became the first Glenelg player since Backwell in 2006 to win the Magarey Medal.

The 22-year-old also won the competition’s other individual trophy this year – the inaugural SANFL Digital Pass Player of the Year as voted by the Digital Pass commentators.

Voted on a 5-4-3-2-1 basis by the SANFL coaches during the minor round, the R. O Shearman Medal voting, including leaderboard, appears weekly in the SANFL Budget.

The medal is named after five-time Sturt premiership player and SA Football Hall of Fame member Bob Shearman.

Triple Magarey Medallist James Allan has dominated the award, claiming a record six R. O Shearman Medals playing for North Adelaide, sharing it with Sturt’s Jade Sheedy in 2008.

September 10, 2019 - PARTINGTON WINS 2019 MAGAREY MEDAL
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK FOR SANFL.COM.AU

The first Bays player to win SANFL’s illustrious best-and-fairest trophy since Brett Backwell in 2006, Partington is also the 10th in club history to earn the League’s coveted individual honour.

Joining Glenelg greats such as Tony McGuinness, Fred Phillis and Kym Hodgeman, the 22-year-old polled 26 votes to finish ahead of Adelaide’s Patrick Wilson on 21 and Norwood’s Lewis Johnston on 17.

After polling a vote in Round 1, the 22-year-old was slow out of the blocks having missed Rounds 2 and 3 with a minor hamstring strain.

But the hard-running midfielder sprang to life from Round 7, as he attracted maximum votes from seven of eight matches, with Round 11 the only game he didn’t poll in during the two-month period.

In this time, the former West Coast Eagle landed a staggering 21 of his total votes which proved to be enough to hold off early pacesetters in Wilson and Port Adelaide’s Jack Trengove.

Sturt pair Sam Colquhoun and Zane Kirkwood also earned top five placings while South’s Abe Davis, Eagle Jordan Foote and Central’s Travis Schiller were inside the top 10 vote-winners.

Measuring in at 181cm and 79kg, Partington averaged 29.5 disposals, five tackles, five clearances and a goal as he quickly cemented himself as one of SANFL’s premier midfielders this season.

Glenelg’s No.10 also claimed SANFL’s inaugural Digital Pass Player of the Year Award as well as the R.O Shearman Medal as voted by the competition’s coaches.

Originally from the Tumby Bay Football Club on the Eyre Peninsula, Partington was forced to deal with immense grief when his father Brian was killed in a mining accident at Olympic Dam in February 2015.

The tenacious onballer was then spurred on to get drafted by AFL club West Coast later that year, where he played six games at the highest level in 2017, including the dramatic Elimination Final victory against Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.

With the high-flying Eagles boasting a supremely strong midfield division, Partington returned to Adelaide to resume his SANFL career with Glenelg, having previously represented Port Adelaide at junior level and Norwood in 2015.

Now preparing for Sunday’s Preliminary Final against Adelaide, Partington has been a major catalyst in reviving the Bays fortunes this year which culminated in the minor premiership.

Not surprisingly, he has also again attracted the attention of AFL scouts after receiving an invite to the State Combine to be held in Adelaide on October 12.

August 21, 2019 - MATCH REPORT | GLENELG VS WEST ADELAIDE
READ MORE +

GLENELG 17.17 (119) def. WEST ADELAIDE 6.8 (44)

Our plan worked pretty well and with some better polish and finish we could’ve lead by 5 goals at the main break. The players responded to some half time feedback about contested ball deficiency and adjustments to stoppage set ups, and I thought our 3rd quarter was executed strongly and we started to get ascendancy back around the contest. When we started to win 1 on 1's we put ourselves in scoring positions and kicked 3 quick goals from stoppage situations.

With only 1 rotation in Q4, we rotated every 90 seconds (which is quick) and could still only manage 14 for the quarter. The players however dug in and played in trademark fashion to dominate the quarter.

Our thoughts and best wishes go out to Tom Schott who suffered a knee injury and will need all our support during his rehab.

Next week Sturt at Unley - another tough challenge.

August 18, 2019 - GLENELG SEALS MINOR PREMIERSHIP
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK FOR SANFL.COM.AU

Despite a scratchy first half, the Tigers clicked into gear during the third quarter as they engineered their biggest win of the season.

And it took an unfortunate knee injury to Bays utility Tom Schott to spark the hosts, who made the most of a lengthy stoppage as Schott left the field.

Within 30 seconds of the former Bloods player limping to the boundary, Brad Agnew fed Luke Reynolds who goaled on the run from 40m.

Mark Stone’s men then piled on the next three goals in succession – with another to Reynolds, his Ken Farmer Medal rival Liam McBean and youngster Todd Slade, who was appearing in his first game of the season.

It allowed the Bays to stretch the half-time margin of 14 points to a match-defining 36 at the final change as they booked direct entry to the Second Semi-Final and a week’s rest at the start of the major round.

”It was a good win in the end as we had a bit to play for – to win the minor premiership and get that week off,” Glenelg captain Chris Curran told Channel 7 after the match.

”This (Glenelg FC) has been a pretty dark place for the last few years and I’ve been on that journey (back up the ladder) but it’s certainly not finished yet.

”It’s a matter of embracing it, we still want to hunt teams and go after them each time.”

Reynolds, who has now closed the gap on McBean in the race to be the competition’s leading goal-kicker, finished with 4.3 to with his 20 disposals, six marks and seven tackles.

He now sits on 43 goals for the season, just three behind McBean, who only managed one against the Bloods.

”Hopefully I will put him (McBean) out at training this week and keep him on the sidelines,” Reynolds said with a laugh.

”It’s just good working with Beany, he’s a big lad so playing alongside of him is very enjoyable.”

But Reynolds, McBean, Darcy Bailey (three goals) and Brad Close (two goals) wouldn’t have had the opportunities they received without the outstanding midfield work done by Matt Snook, Luke Partington and Marlon Motlop.

Snook was tremendous in the clinches before finishing with 37 disposals and a mammoth 16 clearances to shade Partington and Motlop who both tallied in excess of 30 possessions.

In defence, Aaron Joseph marshalled the back six with great composure and with fierce tackling as Tiger team-mate Brad Agnew continually put the clamps on his opponents.

The only negatives from the Bays’ final home match of the season came in regard to the injury to Schott and former Cat Cory Gregson, who didn’t return after half-time after copping a knock to the front of his knee.

After a spirited first-half performance, the Bloods were unable to sustain their effort following the main change, mirroring several of their matches this season.

The Round 17 fadeout was due in part to the loss of star midfielder Kaine Stevens, who left the field early in the second term after receiving an accidental poke in the eye.

In Stevens’ absence, Nathan Batley and Patrick Fairlie led the way on the disposal count with 26 each, while Fairlie’s older brother Connor looked lively throughout the afternoon en route to kicking three goals.

Former skipper Chris Schmidt also had 26 touches while spending time through the midfield while teenager Riley Thilthorpe continues to show plenty of promise, booting two goals and taking six marks from limited opportunities.

West, just one premiership point ahead of tenth-placed North Adelaide, still has plenty to play for in its final match of the season against Norwood next Friday night as it looks to avoid the wooden spoon.

August 07, 2019 - MATCH REPORT | GLENELG VS NORTH ADELAIDE
READ MORE +

GLENELG 4.15 (39) NORTH ADELAIDE 4.15 (39)

We started really well and played the game in our front half for most of the 1st quarter, but let ourselves down with inaccuracy missing 5 gettable shots on goal. However, the way we played was impressive and encouraging.

From there, North played some pretty good footy and their work around the contest and pressure in close was strong and both teams forced errors. Our biggest issue though, was inefficient entries inside 50 – kicking it back to their big men repeatedly.

The 2nd half was a dour struggle and again we had enough of the ball and enough entries, but missed opportunities to capatilise and North were slick at times moving the quickly off turnover and scoring. The game went to the wire and as we are becoming accustomed to, it was until the last seconds to manage to gain a draw – although a kinder bounce and we win.

There are many great takeaways from this game and we’ll learn a lot tactically about how to structure ourselves in different scenarios throughout a game, but the most pleasing aspect of the game for me was that we never gave up, and never surrendered. We didn’t get beaten – and we’re hard to beat.

Next up, West Adelaide in 2 weeks.

GLENELG 15.6 (96) def. ADELAIDE 14.10 (94)

But whatever the result, our players and our team are going to learn a lot about ourselves and how quality players go about their footy. Our mission is always the same - compete fiercely, give great effort and play our style - build a brand - and I thought we did that.

I thought both teams had their moments, but I also felt for periods of the game we were outplayed by a well-drilled and skilled outfit and had to hang on and defend strongly to minimise a run-on.

Our 3rd quarter set up the win with efficiency off turnover and great structure at stoppage.

The last quarter was dominated (statistically) by the Crows, but we managed to hang on and our back 6 were bold under pressure lead by Chris Curran’s efforts. We could’ve put the game away if we kicked our set shots, and luckily Douglas’s set shot was short.

We’ll take a lot out of this game and move forward to North Adelaide at Prospect next Sunday.

Glenelg also had 8 players and an Assistant Coach representing the Club in the recent Statewide Super Crows vs Power Exhibition Match that was held on Sunday July 21 prior to the Glenelg v Port Adelaide Men's League match. 

Representing the Tigers were Madi Freeman, Lucy Bellinger, Ellie Kellock, Chelsea Packer, Lucy Armitage, Caitlin Gould, Sam Franson, Ellen Fauser and Lexia Edwards (Assistant Coach).

July 24, 2019 - MATCH REPORT | GLENELG VS PORT ADELAIDE
READ MORE +

GLENELG 12.8 (80) def. PORT ADELAIDE 8.9 (57)

We had to leave out Cory Gregson with soreness and that gave Darcy Le Cornu the chance to make his debut.

The aim was to attack the contest and to the players credit we were disciplined and aggressive chalking up 44 tackles to half time. This pressure was the catalyst to scoring and restricting their opportunities inside 50.

The 2nd half was about going the distance and conditioning ourselves to play hard for 110 minutes. In review there were some areas we didn’t execute well in Q4 and needed to address.

Otherwise, it was pleasing to beat a very talented team away from home.

Now we turn our attention to Adelaide and that challenge is also massive, and we hope to see an army of black and gold fans at ACH Group Stadium this Saturday.

GLENELG 15.10 (100) def. NORWOOD 8.6 (54)

The game started evenly with both teams getting inside 50s but unable to score. Conditions were tricky and the ball was greasy but it was pressure causing errors that limited scoring.

We got some clean entries in Q2 and put a little gap on Norwood, only to make some fundamental errors which they took advantage of and evened up scoring. By Half Time we held a small lead. We knew we just had to grind away and keep attacking the contested area with ferocity and try to get field position through ground ball, stoppage and contest wins.

I was pleased with our commitment to effort and toughness at the ball and in the 2nd half we won contested possession by 20. To draw away from a good team and win by 46 was a powerful weight of numbers performance.

The challenges keep coming - Port at Alberton next Sunday. Looking forward to that test.

July 11, 2019 - GLENELG CELEBRATES INDIGENOUS ROUND
READ MORE +

The special Indigenous guernsey was first worn in last year's Indigenous Round and is titled "Stand Strong". Designed by Glenelg's very own Marlon Motlop in conjunction with his cousin Keelan Fejo, it depicts the connection in cultural values between indigenous culture and our great game.

"STAND STRONG" By Marlon Motlop & Keelan Fejo

The Aboriginal man is holding his spear and shield which represents him standing strong in war/battle - this can reflect how we are when we play the game, for most of us it's like going to battle.
The cross-hatching (Rarrkbun) represents the direction of strength, power and knowledge when the spear is being thrown.
Boomerangs represent stories/songs - this reflects a connection to footy and how many great stories/songs come out of the game and stay with us forever.

The weapons/tools which represent the effort we give to get to where we are now. The under layer is The Torres Strait islander Head dress “Dhoeri”, which is a representation of Torres Strait Islander people. The streams in the layer represent the different Indigenous identities at the GFC.

Football is very much like our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, when you are apart of a club you are apart of it's culture, you are committed and the effort you put in will get you to where you want to be - Stand Strong.

The guernsey will be proudly worn during this Sunday's Indigenous Round clash with Norwood at ACH Group Stadium.

GLENELG 14.6 (90) def. Eagles 11.9 (75)

The Eagles, who’ve been in really good form, were a huge challenge on their deck where we haven’t won in many years. The Eagles had been prepared and coached with a past knowledge of our players, and came at us hard and challenged us physically, targeting some of our key players.

There were moments of frustration and for a brief period awe strayed from the plan and our brand.

But the main thing I was proud of was that we never strayed off the line of the ball - we never stepped aside to take body instead of ball, and our commitment couldn’t  be questioned. Targeting players in groups is easy - staying in line with the ball when it’s your turn is not.

Next week - Norwood.

June 26, 2019 - MATCH REPORT | GLENELG VS CENTRAL DISTRICT
READ MORE +

Glenelg 19.9 (123) def. Central District 7.12 (54)

It was a close, even contest early and although I thought we controlled the 1st quarter, we failed to push home the inside 50 advantage and score more heavily.


The 2nd quarter was almost the opposite - Central went inside 50 16 times and 7 times on repeat. Fortunately our defence was solid and they were wayward in front of goal - both teams had 11 shots at the half time break.


The 3rd quarter was a powerful running quarter and we broke away with consecutive goals and got the game on our terms. Our last quarters have faded at times but this week we played hard til the end and won the quarter which was pleasing.


It was a strong win after a hard block of footy,  with differing breaks between games which is a challenge. Congrats to Seb Kerrish on his debut and aquitted himself well at the level. 

Next week we take a break and then a big challenge against the in form Eagles at their deck.

See you all then.

June 14, 2019 - MARLON MAKES HIS OWN WAY TO 100
READ MORE +

 

Author: Zac Milbank for sanfl.com.au

A proud Territorian with a strong family history at the Wanderers Football Club in Darwin, Motlop’s first foray into the SANFL came when he lined up for North Adelaide’s Under-17s in 2006.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 29-year-old said his dream was always to play in the AFL, which he achieved during an injury-hampered four years with Port Adelaide.

The same year he made his AFL debut, Motlop lined up in his first Statewide Super League game for the Roosters in Round 9 of 2008.

He remembers it very clearly – from arriving at the ground late under the tutelage of Andrew Jarman – to booting three goals in North’s win against the Eagles.

After regularly playing each ”pre-season” with Wanderers in the NTFL, Motlop also enjoyed a two-year period in the WAFL where he played for Swan Districts and Peel Thunder.

The silky-skilled midfielder was always going to head back to Adelaide where he reunited with North before joining the Bays at the start of 2018.

On the verge of quitting SANFL ranks before landing at Brighton Road, Motlop is now thriving under coach Mark Stone as he looks to continue the tradition of his uncle Mark Motlop, who played with Glenelg during the 1980s.

June 12, 2019 - MATCH WRAP: GLENELG VS NORTH ADELAIDE
READ MORE +

The 1st quarter was fast and up and down the ground, and although we scored 5 goals, we needed to control the speed North were playing. We managed to gain control during the 2nd quarter but a lapse in discipline during a push and shove gave North a goal and then momentum.


The 3rd quarter was a hard running, powerful quarter where we capitalised with better F50 entries and found targets. We ran out the game strongly but over-used the ball slightly in Q4 and North were able to score off turnovers to finish better. However, we’ll take a hard earned 40+ point win.


Like Chris Curran, Matt Snook celebrated his 100th game with a strong win. He has worked incredibly hard to achieve his milestone and his day was honoured by the team.
Next, we take on the Panthers at Flinders University Stadium.

All four clubs playing accross Monday's SANFL fixture will don special blue socks in support of the Fight MND and Sockit2MND cause, which aims to raise funds for medical reasearch and support those living with the disease.

The Sockit2MND initiaitve is part of the wider Fight MND cause, which also coincides with the "Big Freeze", now into its 5th year prior to the Queen's Birthday clash between Collingwood and Melbourne at the MCG.

The official Sockit2MND round extends to professional and grassroots clubs all around the country, with the official Sockit2MND Round kicking off next weekend (June 15-16). The cause has already raised more than $15,000 from over 1000 pairs of socks sold in SA.

June 06, 2019 - SNOOK A PRIZE CATCH FOR THE BAYS
READ MORE +

Author: Zac Milbank for sanfl.com.au

Glenelg’s Matthew Snook has copped a pounding on his way to his 100th Statewide Super League game on Monday but he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 27-year-old says he loves nothing more than putting his body on the line for the Bays, particularly as his side his earning plenty of reward for doing so at the top of the table after eight rounds.

Starting his career at Brighton Road in the Under-15 development squad, Snook also featured in Glenelg’s 2009 Under-18 premiership in which the Tigers only lost two matches throughout the season.

Making his League debut in Round 21 of 2011, Snook entered senior ranks with current team-mates Brad Agnew, Max Proud, Carl Nicholson and Andrew Bradley.

And it’s fair to say he is keen to share in success with those who are equally determined to be regular finalists in the black and gold.

Off the field, the dual best-and-fairest winner is embarking on career change as an apprentice electrician, having spent the past seven years working in carpentry.

May 29, 2019 - MATCH REPORT: GLENELG VS PORT ADELAIDE
READ MORE +

Conditions made it difficult for flowing possession but our pressure applied was really strong and forced Port errors early, but we weren’t able to fully capitalise and score efficiently. We placed the ball poorly at times and missed direct shots on goal.

Our ability to defend as a team strongly in the 2nd quarter gave us a healthy lead at half time and put us in good position to launch into the second half with the breeze. Again, a great press and better ball control set up a 7 goal quarter to set up the win.

We conceded 5 goals in Q4 under fatigue and will look at those errors in review. Overall it was a very strong performance in our captains 100th game and we go to the bye looking forward to a refresh and weekend off.

See you Monday June 10 when we host the Roosters.

 

May 27, 2019 - CLUB STATEMENT: MID-SEASON DRAFT
READ MORE +

From a Club that has a rich history of producing large quantities of AFL draftees, we also have an obligation to our long standing members, supporters, volunteers, players, coaches and community to leave no stone un-turned to win SANFL League premierships. It is what we have existed for throughout our 100 year history. To this extent, the Club has been overwhelmed by the vast majority of the football loving public who have, ever since the pre-season draft was announced, condemned the decision of the AFL Commission to implement such a detrimental mechanism that compromises all State and local League competitions throughout Australia.

Whilst the AFL Commission runs the AFL competition, they have a responsibility to govern and protect the integrity of the game at all levels.  We believe the mid–season draft compromises their obligations to support grass roots competitions.  The Glenelg Football Club will continue to lobby the SANFL and the AFL, making them aware of our passionate supporters feedback and the impact their decision has on the integrity of the game.  We are confident we will not be alone with this action and hope this will lead to the removal of the mid-season draft from 2020.

May 24, 2019 - VALE DONALD LAFFIN

Laffin was a Player Life Member of both the Glenelg Football Club and the SANFL, playing 136 League matches for the Bays between 1946 and 1955. He also played in the Tigers Grand Final side that lost to Norwood at Adelaide Oval in 1950.

The Club has just been notified that Donald's funeral is being held today at 1:30pm at Noarlunga Uniting Church, Christies Beach.

The club passes its condolences on to Donald's family at this difficult time.

May 23, 2019 - HARD FOUGHT 100 FOR CURRAN
READ MORE +

Curran, who made his debut for the Tigers back in 2011, will lead his side out against the Magpies in game number 100, a milestone that has become less and less common in the modern SANFL landscape.

Originally from Horsham in Victoria, Curran first arrived at the Club in 2010 where he began his career with the likes of Ty Allen, Ben Mules and Ruory Kirkby who he looked up to as role models.

"These kinds of guys they trained hard and played hard, but they were great fellas as well.” Curran said.

Once the kid looking up to these leaders, he is now the one that others look up to, having been named sole skipper in 2019 after sharing the role with veteran Andrew Bradley in 2018. Speaking of his time in the role, Curran says he is privileged to wear the famous number 5, but couldn’t do it without the support of his leaders around him.

“It was really good doing it with “Braddles” (Andrew Bradley) last year, I was able to lean off him a bit.” Curran said.

“Being titled as the sole Captain this year has been good, but I see “Proudy” (Max Proud) as being a Captain in my eyes, even through he’s named Vice-Captain.”

Curran's 100th is not the only milestone at The Bay this week, with powerful forward Luke Reynolds playing his 50th game on SANFL football. 

Reynolds was recruited to the Tigers in 2018 and is thriving in his role up forward, kicking 18 goals so far in 2019 and averaging more than 6 marks per game.

May 23, 2019 - 50 UP FOR REYNOLDS
READ MORE +

Recruited from Port Adelaide at the end of 2017, Reynolds has earned his place in the Tigers forward line with his high-marking ability and strength around the ball.

So far in 2019, Reynolds has booted 18 goals, with a career total of 92. He is also averaging more than 6 marks per game.

He will share his milestone game with Captain Chris Curran, who will plays his 100th game on the weekend.

May 22, 2019 - TIGER WOMEN RECOGNISED IN TEAM OF THE YEAR
READ MORE +

Ellen Fauser (Forward Pocket), Ellie Kellock (Back Pocket), Caitlin Gould & Lucy Bellinger (INT) were named in the team following their stand-out 2019 seasons.

Fauser, named in the Forward Pocket, played 10 matches in 2019, averaging nearly 12 disposals a game and 4 marks. Vice-Captain Ellie Kellock enjoyed another stand-out season, averaging 13 disposals and 4 tackles in her 11 games this year. Caitlin Gould impressed in her debut season for the Tigers, taking our a Powerade Breakthrough Player Award in the early rounds of the year, finishing the season with 206 ruck hitouts. Lucy Bellinger was a consistent feature of the Tigers' forward line this year, averaging nearly 14 disposals a game and kicking 6 goals for the year.

The Club would like to congratulate all 4 Women on their achievments this year.

May 21, 2019 - MATCH WRAP - ROUND 7
READ MORE +

We started well but were fortunate the Dogs were inaccurate in front of goal and the scoreboard at quarter time could’ve been even.

The 2nd term was a powerful performance and we strung together some clean and efficient chains to work around or through their defensive zone. 

The 2nd half was hard work on a big ground where much of game is always played between the arcs in a midfield transition battle. We showed we are fit to keep running strong against a team we know is fit, and play the game out right to the last minute.

 
It was pleasing to break a long streak of misery out there but our focus is on high performance and our next challenge. This Sunday we host Port who is in good form and boasting a strong AFL contingent.

 
Bays fans - see you Sunday.

May 21, 2019 - GLENELG CELEBRATES VOLUNTEERS
READ MORE +

CEO Glenn Elliott says the support of our volunteers is unwavering and something that needs to be recognised and celebrated:

"Glenelg’s volunteers must be recognised during this special week." Elliott said.

 "As a group their nonconditional support of the Club and its players is simply outstanding. They represent everything which is good about being involved, never hesitating for even a moment to consider their personal interests.

"‘WE’ is certainly the most powerful word in a football Club and we are proud to include all of our volunteers."

May 20, 2019 - BAYS BREAK ANOTHER DROUGHT
READ MORE +

Author: Zac Milbank for sanfl.com.au

One round after beating the Eagles for the first time in seven years, the Bays trumped the Bulldogs at Elizabeth for the first time in 11 years with a superb display of efficient football.

Mark Stone’s men are showing no signs of being daunted this year as they earned their first premiership points in 10 meetings at the Ponderosa and first since Round 12 2008.

Incredibly, Central had won 24 of its past 25 meetings against the Tigers at Goodman Road but it mattered little as the visitors held the hosts goalless in the opening quarter.

And by time-on of the second stanza, Glenelg had stretched its advantage out to 46 points on the back of classy forward Luke Reynolds booting one of his game-high five goals.

Reynolds, Lachie Hosie (three goals) and Liam McBean (three goals) all continued their exceptional play in the absence of star forward Josh Scott as he continues to recover from a broken arm.

Former West Coast Eagle Luke Partington had his best game in the black and gold to finish with 35 disposals while Jonty Scharenberg (29 disposals) and Matt Snook (24 disposals) also had an equally strong influence through the centre square.

Veteran Aaron Joseph returned from a hamstring strain to collect 17 disposals in defence for the Tigers while fellow backmen Max Proud, Chris Curran and Elliot Chalmers also put in consistent performances.

Central’s two West End State game stars Justin Hoskin and Troy Menzel both tried hard to get their side into the encounter, with Hoskin booting four of his team’s eight goals and Menzel racking up 28 disposals.

But it proved to be to no avail as Roy Laird’s team is left in eighth spot on the ladder with a 2-5 win-loss record nearing the halfway mark of the minor round.

GLENELG  4.4  11.4  13.5  17.7 (109)

CENTRAL  0.4  3.8  5.10  8.12 (60)

LEADING DISPOSALS – Glenelg: Partington 35, Scharenberg 29, Snook 24, Bradley 22, Chalmers, Curran 21, Gould 20, Motlop, Schott 19.

Central: T. Schiller 35, Menzel 28, Hoskin, Presbury 23, Fort, D, Pisani 22, Habel 20, Dew 19.

GOALS – Glenelg: Reynolds 5, Hosie, McBean 3, Bailey, Bradley, Gregson, Motlop, Partington, Scharenberg.

Central: Hoskin 4, Fort, Gillard, Menzel, Jydon Neagle.

May 20, 2019 - U18 Torrens University Round 7 MVP - Reid Kuller
READ MORE +

Kuller notched up a game-high 32 disposals in the Tigers' win over Central District on Saturday afternoon. Saturday's stand-out game was consistent with Kuller's 2019 season to date, with the young Tiger averaging more than 23 disposals in his 7 games so far this year, also leading the side in both marks and kicks.

The U18's enjoyed their third win of the season, following a 4 point win over the Dogs on Saturday. The side icurrently sits 6th on the ladder, only sitting out of the top 4 on percentage. Their next match is on Saturday June 1, when they take on North Adelaide at Prospect.

May 16, 2019 - TIGERS ACADEMY ROUND 1 RESULTS
READ MORE +

Under 13
On Friday evening, the 10th of May, the U13 Tigers Academy squad came together for the first time as a playing group.

The players were obviously eager, and ready for action, as a 6 goal to zero first quarter told a very positive story. The young men of the GFC U13 group played a team orientated style of game that enabled them to kick goals from the goal square after putting together chains of intelligent and purposeful handballs and short kicks.

Throughout the game our players continued to work hard for each other and the "1%" aspects that make for good football, really stood out. This enabled the group to apply considerable pressure to the Sturt players who had, and were around, the ball.
The lengthy list of goal kickers and the coaching group's call of -"all played well" demonstrated the excellent brand of football that the GFC U13's presented.

Final Score: Glenelg 13.14 to Sturt 0.0

We are looking forward to the challenge that the North Adelaide FC will bring this Friday.

 

Under 14

After completing quite a few sessions leading into the season, the U14 team played their first game together on Friday night. The boys took a little time to get used to playing together which was also made more difficult with dewy night conditions. After an even first quarter the boys dominated the game after that. It was particularly pleasing to see them openly communicating with each other on the ground and their determination to win each contest. We moved the ball reflective of the type of play we’d been training which put ourselves in a position to have 28 scoring shots.

I’m sure the boys will continue to grow and develop as the season progresses. From an individual perspective, Ben Ridgway worked tirelessly in each quarter which gave himself the ability to rack up possessions and hit the scoreboard. Saxon Amber, Bowen Payne and Kai Reid will only grow in confidence after their solid contributions as well.  

 

Under 15

Earlier in the week, our U15 boys worked together to create their team trademarks as to how they wanted to play their football this year. The agreed trademarks are: Respect / 100% Effort, 100% of the time / Care and Resilience. 

Friday night’s focus was to put these trademarks into action against Sturt. Sturt were going to be a good test to play first up and after a tight game, our boys never gave in and kicked away in the last term to win by 27 points. A good win considering it was the first time the boys played together this season and we will only improve as each boy gets to know their team mate’s game better.

Foster Mesecke was best afield, while Zac Spilsbury, Sam King, Jake Pavia-Amato and Hudson Elkins were also amongst our best. Special mentions to Brodie Johnson, Tyla McGregor, Archie Lovelock and Hayden Brokensha who played their team role exceptionally well.

All focus now turns to North Adelaide this Friday night at home.

May 08, 2019 - MATCH WRAP: GLENELG VS EAGLES
READ MORE +

Our starts haven’t been great over the past 2 games and although the scoreboard wasn’t ticking over at a high rate, I felt we were getting the game on our terms early. The 2nd quarter was a strong one and we scored quickly from repeat entries and forward pressure.

We put together 3 quarters of pretty complete footy - in all phases - offence, contest, defence transition and showed our football capability. The last quarter was 6 goals to 6 but the eagles had 11 shots and won the quarter.

We’ll take the points and keep building our brand. The only low-light was the injury to Carl Nicholson who will miss a couple of weeks.

Next we go to Elizabeth to take on Centrals - and we look forward to that challenge.

May 07, 2019 - GFCW MATCH REPORT: ROUND 10 VS EAGLES
READ MORE +

Over the 2019 journey we have made massive strides with the development of our squad. The 6 week skill development program we put our players through in the offseason has definitely yielded significant improvement. When you watch them now, you wouldn’t know some of our well performed players couldn’t kick a drop punt before joining us, let alone being able to do it on the run and under pressure. 

We started our final minor round game conceding a soft goal, but managed to get control of the game soon after with first quarter goals to Ellen Fauser, Lucy Bellinger and Ebony Marinoff.

The second quarter was very much a grind, with a solitary goal to Bonnie wells, who cleverly kicked the ball off the ground on her non preferred left foot.

Lucy Armitage kicked a couple of goals in the third quarter, while the Eagles kicked one themselves.

The Eagles lifted significantly in the last quarter, making some good positional changes that gave them some ascendency. The Eagles kicked three goals to our one from Sam Franson, giving us a 19 point win along with that spot in the finals. The margin was irrelevant, we would have taken a 1 point win in a heartbeat!

Last week we made pact not to worry about the result of the South-West game while we were playing our game. We just wanted to remain solely focused on what we were doing, ‘control the controllables’. The scream and excitement from the players once I informed them we were playing finals for the first time ever made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

When you’ve come from as far back as we have, we make sure our playing group enjoys each and every win along the way. The only rule around this is once we get back to training the next week, we knuckle down and get back to work. This week is no different. 

Whilst we did need a result out of our control to go our way to make the finals, we definitely did earn this opportunity. Our percentage alone is a key indicator of this. However we don’t believe we have achieved anything yet. Making finals is just one piece of the puzzle and certainly not the end destination. We had to play three elimination finals just to give ourselves a chance to make the finals. We are as finals hardened as anyone can be. We believe our best is definitely good enough to compete with anyone. 

This week we play our first ever final - an elimination Semi Final against North Adelaide 6pm Friday 10th May at Norwood Oval. The team would truly appreciate all your support.

 

Glenelg 7.9-51 defeated Woodville West Torrens 5.2-32

Goals: Lucy Armitage (2) Ellen Fauser (1) Lucy Bellinger (1) Ebony Marinoff (1) Bonnie Wells (1) Sam Franson (1)

Best: Ebony Marinoff, Ellen Fauser, Sam Franson, Caitlin Gould, Sheridan Howell, Tasja Batzavalis

April 26, 2019 - TIGERS HOSIE DOWN THE BLOODS

By ZAC MILBANK for sanfl.com.au

It might not be your night but it can be your moment.

And it’s fair to say Glenelg’s livewire forward Lachie Hosie lived this theme to full extent as the Bays produced a stirring 16-point win against West Adelaide at City Mazda Stadium on Wednesday night.

Hosie’s personal game was a microcosm of his team’s as he threatened to break the contest open in the third before helping burst the dam open in a rampant final quarter which yielded six goals for the visitors while keeping West to just one.

With outstanding captain Chris Curran and his deputy Max Proud keeping the Tigers in the game with their stunning defence and intercept marking, Hosie was set to rue a string of three consecutive behinds as his team tried to claw back into the contest.

In the space of three minutes during the third term, Hosie – pictured above – missed from 10m at the top of the goal square and twice from kickable angles inside 50m as the Bays limped to 4.11 at the final change.

But everything changed as Mark Stone’s men produced a final quarter flurry and it was the Tigers’ No.20 right in the thick of it.

Marlon Motlop – who worked incredibly hard both ways for the Bays to collect a team high 25 disposals – snapped truly from 20m to cut the margin to eight points.

Then, within 120 seconds, Hosie put his side in front as he got on the end of two pieces of neat team play to run into two open goals.

The first was a deep ball inside 50m which he won the race for ahead of fellow forward Luke Reynolds, who also booted two final term majors to help seal the deal.

The second came from an outstanding handpass from Geelong recruit Cory Gregson, who cleared the congestion to put Hosie into a position of advantage.

By the time Darcy Bailey threw the ball into his boot in traffic to put Glenelg in front by 9 points nearing time-on, the game’s complexion had completed changed.

The Tigers put another on the board from Reynolds before controlling the clock as Westies tried valiantly to put themselves back in front.

West’s midfield, led by Will Snelling with 27 touches, had been winning the arm wrestle for the majority of the night.

But ultimately, those like captain Tom Keough who battled hard for 21 disposals and eight clearances, former skipper Chris Schmidt and star on-baller Kaine Stevens, faded in the final term after previously doing the bulk of the grunt work for the hosts.

It will be a tough result to swallow for the Bloods given they produced their best football of the season in eclipsing the Eagles by 37 points just five days earlier at the same venue.

Suddenly, instead of keeping in touch with the top five at 2-3, the Bloods now remain ninth with a 1-4 win-loss count ahead of a Round 6 engagement with South Adelaide at Flinders University Stadium.

In contrast, Glenelg now sits with a 3-1-1 win-loss-draw record ahead of its next clash in Round 6 against the Eagles at ACH Group Stadium.
