READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK 

The South Australian Under-18 Girls Squad has been finalised, with as many as 7 players included from our Glenelg side in the SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League.

Set to compete against the Northern Territory and Tasmania in a tri-series held in Adelaide from May 11 to 13, the Croweaters will again be coached by Bill Economou.

Powerade Star Search Award winner Chloe Scheer (North Adelaide) heads the 24-player squad, with Glenelg pair Eloise Jones and Brianna Walling certain to have an impact in attack.

Tigers duo Montana McKinnon (183cm) and Jessica Allan (184cm) add valuable height to the list while Bays utility Tait Mackrill will bring her noted physicality to the contest.

Norwood’s Nikki Gore – SA’s sole inclusion in the inagurual AFL Women’s Academy – has returned from her overseas trip to also be included, with her skill certain to be used to advantage by Economou.

The SA U18 Girls squad is currently taking part in a three-day training camp at Warradale, with team bonding high on the agenda as well as practicing game methods under Economou, together with the support of Gibson and new SANFL Talent Manager – Female Programs.

The best performed South Australians in the May Tri-Series will be picked to play alongside those from NT and Tasmania while representing the Allies at the U18 AFL Youth Girls Championships to be held on the Gold Coast from July 9 to 14.

April 04, 2017 - GLENELG'S CHANGING FACE
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK

Glenelg is ready to embrace its new facilities which will be finished just in time to host arch-rival Port Adelaide at Gliderol Stadium on Friday night.

With access to the Tigers’ regular changerooms in the H. Y Sparks Stand denied after an unseasonal storm blew its roof off in January, alternative plans have been put in place for the 2017 SANFL Macca’s League.

The Bays will now be housed underneath the club’s function centre, with the players set to receive a rousing reception entering the field from Snouts Hill in the south-western pocket.

The visitors will enter the Brighton Road venue from the south-western pocket after changing in a separate dwelling behind the scoreboard.

Bunting will be put in place to section off the access areas for players and officials while fans will still be able to access the majority of the ground except for sitting in the H. Y Sparks Stand.

Players have already been enjoying the new gym, which has been relocated to the top of the function centre, overlooking the oval.

Glenelg will lock horns with the Magpies from 7.10pm in Round 1 of the SANFL Macca’s League.

 

April 03, 2017 - UNDER 16 MATCH REPORT - ROUND 2
READ MORE +

Following on from last week’s solid win the 16’s headed to City Mazda for their match against West Adelaide. After a slowish start the group slowly took control of the match. After leading by 8 points at the first break the half time margin built to 24.

Riley Davis was instrumental on ball and up forward and Luke Edwards was polished around goal in his first match after injury. The team began to move the ball better as the game progressed and this certainly showed in the 8 goal to 3 second half.

Angus Weir was lively around the ground, Sam Liambis in defence and on ball had another good game, with Will Schreiber playing a very good second half.

Final Scores

Glenelg 16.14 to West 7.6

Goals: Edwards 4, Davis 2, Dylan Strickland 2, Will Gould 2, and singles to Terrence Wilfred, Riley Carter, Callum Park, Beau McCreery, Nick Crouch and Ricky O’Loughlin.
Best: Weir, Davis, Edwards, Liambis, Schreiber, Park.

March 30, 2017 - COACHES CORNER WITH MATT LOKAN
READ MORE +

Glenelg’s defensive action will continue to be a key focus for senior coach Matt Lokan in the 2017 SANFL Macca’s League.

Having lost both trials games comfortably, the third-year Bays mentor is keen for his charges to regularly implement a more team-orientated style of defence this season.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, Lokan said his side had been through a thorough review of last Friday night’s heavy loss to the Redlegs in preparation for this Friday night’s trial game against West Adelaide at City Mazda Stadium.

The Tigers’ impressive youth movement will surge in 2017 with potential AFL draftees Darcy Fogarty, Jackson Edwards and Alex Martini already appearing in League trials while last year’s All-Australian U18 duo – Jonty Scharenberg and Sam Walker – have also enjoyed strong pre-seasons.

Delisted Richmond bigman Liam McBean (202cm and 85kg) will provide support for 2016 Best and Fairest Josh Scott in attack and tireless Warrick McGinty in the ruck while former Melbourne wingman Dom Barry will offer polish on his skillful left foot.

Captain Andrew Bradley headlines the Bays’ string of virtual recruits, who missed large portions of last year’s campaign with injury.

The others include Rhys O’Keeffe, Harley Montgomery and Darcy Bailey, who will all be looking to establish themselves as regulars in the League team.

After Friday night’s trial against the Bloods, the Bays will face arch-rival Port Adelaide in Round 1 at Gliderol Stadium on Friday April 7.

Courtney Gum chats to Zac Milbank on SANFL radio about winning the Statewide Super Women's League Best & Fairest award last night. Courtney polled a total of 13 votes to finish ahead of Norwood’s Sophie Li and North’s Chloe Scheer, who were equal runner-up with seven votes each.

 

March 28, 2017 - GUM WINS STATEWIDE SUPER WOMEN'S LEAGUE BEST & FAIREST
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK 

Glenelg’s Courtney Gum has capped off her brilliant individual season, winning the inaugural SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League Best and Fairest Award.

One of the most experienced midfielders in the competition, Gum also received the first Coaches Award, voted on by the four coaches in the SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League.

The older sister of Tristan Gum – who played 134 SANFL games for Sturt and North Adelaide – the prolific on-baller has been a revelation for the Tigers while dominating the centre square in 2017.

The 35-year-old – who hails from powerful SAWFL club Morphettville Park – averaged a stunning 24.3 disposals during the minor round, whilst displaying her skills on left and right foot.

The Bays’ No.23 polled a total of 13 votes to finish ahead of Norwood’s Sophie Li and North’s Chloe Scheer, who were equal runner-up with seven votes each.

Gum – who measures in at 169cm – attracted votes from the umpires in five of her six outings for Glenelg, including four first preferences.

Blessed with a natural ability to find the ball at ground level, Gum’s best performance came in Round 2 when she tallied 35 disposals, seven marks, four tackles and a goal.

Considered unlucky not be drafted for Adelaide’s AFLW team this year, Gum was a member of the Crows’ train-on squad in 2017.

READ MORE +

The Glenelg Under 16 team began their season last Sunday with a narrow victory against North Adelaide. They started the game very well and dominated play in the first 2 quarters winning the majority of possessions but not really converting this to the scoreboard.

At half time they led 6-7 to 3-3 but struggled in the second half to hang on. North leveled the scores late in the match but we were able to kick the last goal to seal the win. Their defensive aspect is an area they will need to improve in the upcoming matches.

The final score was Glenelg 12.12 to North Adelaide 12.6.

Goals: Will Gould 4, Beau McCreery 2, Callum Park, Riley Davis, Nick Jones, Finn Grimes, Dylan Strickland, and Max Harry all 1

Best: Sam Liambis, Will Gould, Callum Park, Dylan Strickland, Nick Jones and Will Day

READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK

Glenelg captain Andrew Bradley will extend his tenure into a fourth year after being reappointed skipper for season 2017. The fearless midfielder has again been elected to wear the Bays' famous No.5 guernsey in honour of dual premiership captain Peter ''Super'' Carey.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 25-year-old revealed he is easing back into full contact training after suffering a serious broken collarbone last season. Bradley - who has now logged 102 League matches for the Bays since 2010 - missed 12 weeks of action after undergoing surgery.

After coming through unscathed in an internal trial match last weekend, he has been named to play in the Reserves against Central District on Saturday in our first official trial at My Money House Oval.  

Reserves kick-off at 10:00 am followed by our league side at 12:40 pm. 

Glenelg's captain since sharing the duties with Ty Allen in 2014, Bradley will be backed by experienced defender James Sellar, who will be the club's vice-captain. AFL experienced pair Aaron Joseph and Christian Howard will again be a part of the leadership group while loyal midfielder Lachlan Earl has been included for the second time.

March 15, 2017 - BRIANNA - THE BAY'S BRIGHT STAR
READ MORE +

Glenelg’s Brianna Walling loves nothing more than watching her team-mates excel in the SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League.

The Round 4 nominee for the Powerade Star Search award, Walling has a penchant for winning the ball in traffic through the midfield before setting her fellow Tigers up with creative use of the ball.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 17-year-old said she was enjoying playing and training with senior stars Courtney Gum and Lexia Edwards at Brighton Road.

Growing up in a football family, Walling – at Reynella FC – was the only girl playing in the Southern Football League’s Under-14 competition.

But after overcoming some initial fears, she ended up winning the Best-and-Fairest award for the Wineflies.

Now a member of the powerful Morphettville Park FC team, Walling – who measures in at just 163cm and 50kg – is currently studying Year 12 with the hope of being a criminologist or interior designer.

March 02, 2017 - HY SPARKS GRAND STAND UPDATE
READ MORE +

We would like to provide you with a brief update in regards the HY Sparks Grandstand matter.

Grandstand Damage

We can now provide clarity on the issue. As most will be aware, part of the HY Sparks Grandstand roof was displaced in late December.  Since then there have been numerous meetings between all affected parties: Insurers, Council, Engineers and the Club. It is pleasing to report the collaborative approach which was adopted by all to ensure safe workable facilities for the 2017 Football Season. There were two major linked yet separate matters to be resolved. First priority was to ensure GFC could play its home matches at Gliderol Stadium this season and secondly the matter of the HY Sparks Grandstand damage. The latter is subject to ongoing engineering and building investigations which will enable an informed decision to be made.

  • Home matches will be at the Bay this year
  • Change rooms: Council has arranged for temporary change rooms under the Glenelg Club first floor facility [southern end] and is urgently refitting the St John’s building to provide facilities for women’s football and visitor change rooms. The work required is in progress and must be completed in time for the first game on April 7.
  • Safety: Remains the primary focus. The grandstand has been made safe for the public but will not be available for access during the season.

Acknowledgments

The unforeseen weather event which created the challenges, could only be overcome through the cooperative and collaborative approach of key parties and persons:

  • City of Holdfast Bay Elected Members and Staff for their approach in finding quick and workable solutions which will enable us to play at Glenelg Oval
  • Fred Phillis Architects, Fred’s detailed knowledge of our existing and required facilities was invaluable
  • Elders Insurance / QBE for their efficiency and working closely with us in consideration of our urgent requirements to continue our normal operations as a club

Further updates shall be provided as the season becomes closer.

February 28, 2017 - 2016 AGM UPDATE
READ MORE +

92 Financial Members attended the Club’s Annual General Meetings for the Glenelg Football Club and Glenelg Footballers Club last night. In accordance with the Club Constitutions members adopted the Minutes of the 2015 AGMs, the Annual Report & Financial Statements and Auditor appointment.

Club Chairman Nick Chigwidden addressed the meeting in providing a summary of key issues:

Club had recorded a consolidated fully year profit of $14,000 following significant losses in the previous three years. This figure is after Depreciation of $144,000 and  Interest payments of $202,000. The latter represents ‘dead money’ for a sporting Club as it prevents investment in the core business of football and infrastructure

Debt had been reduced by $320,000 due to funds received from the proceeds of AAMI Stadium and the Save the Tigers campaign

The HY Sparks Grandstand matter was yet to be resolved, but he reported that the it would not be available for use this season. Temporary facilities would be in place to ensure that the Club played football at Gliderol Stadium this season

Members and Sponsors were thanked for their continued support of the Club

Election of Board Members

Members voted in accordance with the Constitution with the Returning Officer overseeing the election

Result: Brian Veale and Justin Scripps were elected to the Board for a two year term.

Senior Coach Matt Lokan also addressed the meeting focussing on the upcoming 2017 SANFL Season, he also answered Member questions.

The Meeting concluded at 8.30pm.

 

February 28, 2017 - CROW EATER CATCH UP - DARCY FOGARTY
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK

Glenelg’s Darcy Fogarty has revealed a sudden growth spurt has him primed to take the next step in his quest to post a strong 2017 campaign.

Considered to be one of SA’s brightest teenage talents this year, Fogarty has shot up from 189cm to 193cm, since August last year.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 17-year-old said he had also put on at least six kilograms in the same period to ensure he tips the scales at 90kg.

Currently training with the Bays’ senior squad under coach Matt Lokan, Fogarty is thriving since his trip to the United States with the AFL Academy in January.

The boy from Lucindale said the two-week camp was a big eye-opener for him in regard to the professional life led by athletes on and off the field.

Undertaking skills training from Academy coach Luke Power, Fogarty also enjoyed some downtime by watching Australian basketball star Matthew Dellavedova play for the Milwaukee Bucks against the Orlando Magic.

Fogarty also chats about his learning curve after playing in defence during the McDonald’s SA Under-18 trial match earlier this month, after spending most of the past two years plying his trade in attack with the occasional spurt in the midfield.

As Narelle says, you have to lose games to learn how to win, so that is what we will do!

The club welcomes Dom Barry to the Glenelg Football Club. Dom has come to Adelaide to study teaching and is looking at playing footy at SANFL level. He is training well and has settled in to Adelaide. Dom will provide the team with some outside run and good ball use.

Damon Robinson (Grandson of Club legend John Robinson) is training with the club after a few years playing with Adelaide Uni. Damon is a lean Ruckman who is working diligently to improve his fitness and game sense.

Liam McBean is training strongly. He is going to provide us with a tall option in our forward line and will help alleviate some of the pressure on Josh Scott and Warrick McGinty. Liam has adapted to life in SA well and is keen to make his mark on the club.

Training is progressing well. Brad Keller has taken charge of our strength and conditioning program. The players are looking stronger and have worked hard on the track. They are currently entering a solid training phase as the trial games approach.

Ziggy Vitkunas, Harley Montgomery, Dom Barry, Warrick McGinty and Rhys O’Keeffe have had solid pre-seasons thus far.

Andrew Bradley is moving well after missing the majority of the 2016 season with a shoulder injury. Matt Snook is soon to return to full training as is Brad Merrett (hamstring).

Josh Koster is working hard on improving his fitness and Under 18 players Alex Martini, Brad McCarthy, Jackson Edwards, Darcy Fogarty, Cam Buchanan, Tobin Cox and Sam Davis have adapted to senior training and are displaying their obvious talents.

Training is at Westminster College on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday’s from 6pm.

READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK

Glenelg ruck Bridgette Needs is targeting a return in the final round of the SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League after breaking her ribs against West Adelaide on Friday night.

The tallest player in the competition, Needs was felled when she went back with courage, copping a blow to her back from her West Adelaide opponent five minutes into the final term.

The 26-year-old was then stretchered from the ground and unable to take any further part in the Tigers’ opening round victory.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, Glenelg coach Narelle Smith said Needs – who was at the club’s recovery session on Saturday – was on track to appear one week before the Grand Final.

Highly-rated Jessica Allan will be available for this Saturday’s Round 2 contest against North Adelaide while 15-year-old prodigy Montana McKinnon showed plenty of promise while in the centre square during the final term.

Round 2 of the SANFL Statewide Super Women’s League will be held at City Mazda Stadium on Saturday night, with Glenelg playing North Adelaide at 6pm, followed by West Adelaide hosting Norwood at 8.10pm.

February 15, 2017 - RELL'S WRAP UP - PRESEASON SUMMARY
READ MORE +

The inaugural Glenelg Football Club Women’s (GFCW) squad walked into the Glenelg Football Club (GFC) function centre on Wednesday 22nd December 2016.  The main aim of the GFCW program was to provide the players with an SANFL ‘experience’.  Create an environment that is a step up from ‘club’ football and to provide the means to improve as both people & footballers. It was also to provide an opportunity to see the level of commitment & dedication required to play AFL at a State League Club within the SANFL. The tone of the program was set with Senior Coach Matt Lokan addressing the players and making no apology for setting the bar high as the GFC wants to be a place where success follows on the back of hard work.

From this platform the playing group have never looked back, team identity was established early which has assisted in the players feeling welcome and part of the GFC. They have had access to the GFC gym and trained as regularly as the men including sessions that are player driven away from organised sessions. The players have embraced GFC trademark and already represented the club at a high level.

On the track the players have worked on skill and football knowledge enhancement.  The program places a high emphasis on ‘player responsibility’ for conditioning which sees the playing group continue their running & weights program outside of coordinated sessions. The GFC has been able to balance all 3 main training squads (men’s, women’s and U18/U16).  All of the training squads share the gym and our training facilities in a manner that is inclusive and respectful.

Our three main training themes have been skills / touch, structures and ball movement. The player’s sharpness with the ball in hand has been good and the group was only reflecting on their own improvement with regards to touch at our last training session. As we all know training is one thing and games are another so the real test about how well they have taken in our desired style of play and structures will be tested Round 1 – which we are all eager to get started!

February 03, 2017 - RIOLI PUTTING IN THE HARD YARDS
READ MORE +

BY RHYS DICKINSON

Livewire first year forward Willie Rioli has one goal this year: to play an official AFL game.

The softly spoken Tiwi Islands product has been playing senior football since he was 15, and for that reason he believes securing a spot in the Eagles’ best 22 sometime during season 2017 isn’t unachievable.

“Coming from a small community it was always my goal to come and play at the highest level,” Rioli said.

“I’m used to the bigger bodies as I played a bit of senior footy.

“My goal is to play AFL footy. I want to be consistent, get my body right and pull that jumper on – that’s my goal. Whether that’s in the JLT Series, round one or round five, that’s the goal.”

As driven as he is, Rioli knows he has to put in the hard yards to make his AFL dream a reality.

The 21-year-old has been working closely with West Coast forwards coach Jaymie Graham and development coach Luke Webster to subtly refine his exciting style of play.

“They just say play the way that got you drafted,” he said.

“I don’t need to change much, because I’m pretty used to it having played senior footy. I’ve played the role I’ve been playing since I was 15 or 16; I’m pretty used to it now. I’m trying to mix my flair and my type of game with the structures to help the team win.”

Rioli has also been picking the brains of his fellow forwards.

“I’ve been seeking information off Lecca (Mark LeCras), Crippa (Jamie Cripps), JK (Josh Kennedy) and JD (Jack Darling); I’m just asking them for information,” he said.

“They play a similar role as I do. I’ve been watching their reviews too. They don’t do much wrong, so they’re great to learn from.

“I’m taking each session as it comes and I’ll learn as much as I can before I play a game. I’m giving each training session 100 per cent.”

Striking a balance between work and leisure had also been a focus for the new draftee.

First year players are sometimes overwhelmed by the seemingly 24/7 nature of becoming a professional footballer, but Rioli said Graham and Webster preached the value of downtime.

“They just talk about getting the balance right off-field and being professional,” he said.

“They said I’m doing everything right on the track. They encouraged me to get a good balance outside of footy so I’m fresh for training and games.”

February 01, 2017 - BARRY IN FOR THE BAYS
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK

Glenelg has signed former Melbourne and APY Lands midfielder Dom Barry for season 2017.

Barry, who played five AFL games for the Demons in 2014, is has been training with the Tigers since the Christmas break.

Tigers key defender James Sellar, who was on Melbourne’s AFL list at the same time as Barry, said the smooth-mover’s skill level had caught the eye at training.

Sellar said the 22-year-old – who measures in at 183cm and 73kg – also impressed with his creativity during match simulation under senior coach Matt Lokan.

A lightly-framed left-footer, Barry spent the majority of last year on the sidelines as he focused on his Fregon-based role as match-day co-ordinator for the Far North West Sports League.

Educated at St Patrick’s College in Ballarat, Barry represented the Northern Territory at the 2012 U18 AFL National Championships as seen in the footage above.

After playing in premierships for the NT Thunder (NEAFL) and Federal (Central Australian Football League), Barry one of his rare appearances last season for the APY Thunder team in Alice Springs.

Also featured in the above video clip, Barry displayed glimpses of his talent during the July 10 contest at Traeger Park.

January 23, 2017 - CLUBS BUILT ON ROCKS LIKE FRED
READ MORE +

BY GRAHAM CORNES 

FRED Drolsbach passed away last week.

He was just 66 years old (although he looked much younger) and had devoted almost half his life to the Glenelg Football Club.

But this is not just a story about the Glenelg Football Club, because every Australian sporting club, even those most professional of teams for which we think money is no object, has a Fred Drolsbach.

For Australian sport relies almost entirely on an extended family of volunteers.

The chief executives and other staff are well paid in the professional and semi-professional sports but, ironically, the teams simply would not function without their volunteers, whose only reward is the success of their teams or perhaps watching one of their young charges move to an elite level.

I first noticed Fred, and his wife Judy, when I was playing for the Bays.

A young attractive couple, they would sit quietly after a game, always with a friendly smile and a warm greeting, regardless of the result.

Slowly, over the years their family grew; firstly Kylie, then Cherie came along — petite pretty girls who seemed to share their parents’ temperament and love of the club into which they had been indoctrinated.

Then, at the end of the 1990 season, the phenomenon that is the Adelaide Football Club emerged, almost from nowhere.

Overnight South Australian football changed forever.

It became much harder to run a SANFL club.

No longer were they the elite of South Australian football; no longer was it so appealing or attractive to be associated with a SANFL club.

Glenelg was particularly hard hit and when the Under 17 colts team was struggling to find a property steward, Fred at the urging of his daughter Cherie who was friendly with one of the young players, volunteered.

Over the ensuing years he served as a property steward for the senior colts, reserves, then the league team. Finally he became the team manager for the league team — a job that requires almost as much time and energy as that for an AFL team.

Fred was a beauty. Of Dutch extraction, he had immigrated with his parents when he was only two.

He was the type of man about who everyone says: “Fred Drolsbach — yeah he’s a good guy”. Glenn Elliot, Glenelg’s chief executive who has spent a lifetime around footy and other sporting clubs, said: “ I’ve never seen a person who has made such a selfless, non-conditional contribution to a football club. He expected nothing in return”.

He was multiskilled as well. When a wall needed painting or general maintenance was required, Fred simply did it, saving the club thousands.

Did such commitment come at the expense of family life? Judy, who also served the club on the various ladies’ committees, never thought so. “He always came straight home after training”, said Judy. “And after a game, when the formalities had been completed, he wouldn’t go to the bar with the boys.

“He’d always find me and join me”.

They had been childhood sweethearts (he met Judy when he was 16), and they developed a genuine love for their football club.

Fred’s passing was unexpected. He had otherwise been healthy but developed a severe case of pancreatitis, which was complicated by a superbug.

He spent 11 weeks in an intensive care unit before he succumbed. In his final days, he was still thinking of the Glenelg Football Club, which has faced many challenges over the past few years. The financial predicament of the club has been well publicised and only recently, in one of the severe storms, a grandstand lost its roof and was severely damaged.

One of his last statements to his wife, in a pain-wracked delirium, was: “Tell Glenn (Elliott) to rebuild the club on a big rock and we’ll be all right”.

The metaphor of a solid foundation, be it physical, financial or of personnel is significant.

There are times when the volunteers who sustain any sporting club are taken for granted. It is a great sadness that people like Fred Drolsbach never really get to know just how much they are needed, appreciated and, ultimately, missed.

January 16, 2017 - RIP FRED DROLSBACH
READ MORE +

The Glenelg Football Club would like to acknowledge the passing of Life Member and long-time volunteer Fred Drolsbach.

Fred has been a dedicated volunteer at the Glenelg Football Club for over 25 years where he took on numerous responsibilities. After many years of commitment and service, Fred received his 10 year service badge in 2002 and was awarded Life Membership in 2009. During this time Fred spent over 10 years as team manager and 10 years as a property steward where he formed many lasting relationships with players, coaches, staff and officials.

Fred’s loyalty to the Glenelg Football Club was unquestionable. He was ‘selfless’ - it was never about Fred, it was always about what was best for the Club. He showed ‘unconditional support’ - his involvement was totally unconditional, never about personal reward or ambition, simply a matter of supporting his Club. Lastly he was a friend to everyone he met and for that our lives have been enriched.

Fred will be dearly missed by all at the Glenelg Football Club. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Drolsbach family.

December 23, 2016 - CHRISTMAS WRAP UP 2016!
READ MORE +

Firstly the Glenelg Football Club would like to recognise and respect all our members for their unconditional support during what must be described as challenging times both on and off the field in recent years.This years SANFL minor round aggregate attendances placed the Tigers in the top three of the competition - a great feat and indicative of what may be. Membership numbers increased and the response to the Save the Tigers campaign was widespread. But to the season itself and the two key measures for which we are judged each and every year - finance and football.

Back in the black
Members will be pleased with the financial result for 2016 after several years of poor financial results. Sustained losses in a Football Club simply prevents investment in the key areas of football operations and infrastructure. Producing profits is fundamental to operating a successful Club in the SANFL these days.

Improved football outcomes
Our members will acknowledge improved results in 2016. No finals appearance, yet better quality wins and less blow outs, stronger commitment yet no conquering of the competition, but critically we can see our goal now as opposed to the starting line.

The first block of pre season has concluded successfully. The highlights to date include that of player unity and the acceptance of a new more scientific approach to the program. No stories of 'fitter, stronger, faster', others can judge that in April. Suffice to say that we have a talented committed group of football personnel who crave success.

There are other aspects of our Club which warrant comment.

The Glenelg Club
The club continues to trade well in a fiercely competitive hospitality market within the Glenelg precinct. Bistro trade has been the highlight serving over 1,000 meals per week. We hosted some blockbuster events during the year including the Cricket Shield Final and the Slowdown. The financial result was clearly the strongest of recent years. Gaming operations are not popular with all members, but please be aware that this is the 'elephant in the room', it has created the biggest income divide in the SANFL. Most recently we have created a new entrance to the Gaming Room direct off the car park to improve access.Fundamentally we must operate a profitable licensed Club in order to provide the funds needed to achieve football success - which means winning.

Communication
We made this a priority this year, clear communication with real updates. Statistics prove that more and more members have kept in touch, posed questions and been made aware of Club events. We can and must adopt a strategy of continuous improvement. We did expect more queries through the Bay Runner which provides a great forum for members to ask questions - please access it when the need arises.

2017 - the year of challenge
Put simply, this must be a year in which we all challenge ourselves at every level within the Club - 'We, Us, the Club, which one are you? Our Club must achieve one of its key goals, being a finalist every year. The Board must challenge itself to make better strategic decisions, Management and staff must always challenge ourselves to improve and to achieve the budgeted profit figure, Coaches and players must challenge themselves to participate in the finals and our members must challenge themselves to be more demanding of the Club itself whilst maintaining non conditional support - because after all, you have chosen Glenelg as your Club!

Above all, please have the best possible Xmas you can. We look forward to seeing you all and welcoming you back into the Glenelg family for the 2017 SANFL Season - you know we will do our best!

December 22, 2016 - CHRISTMAS OFFICE CLOSURE

December 14, 2016 - MCDONALDS TO SPONSOR SANFL COMPETITION
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK - CHIEF SANFL WRITER 

South Australia’s elite football competition will become known as the SANFL Macca’s League following the signing of a major new sponsorship agreement with McDonald’s.

The new two-year agreement builds on a 13-year relationship between the SANFL and McDonald’s South Australia, which has previously sponsored SANFL’s junior football, the Macca’s Cup and Shield competitions and SANFL’s U15, U16 and U18 State teams.

“We have enjoyed a long and close partnership with McDonald’s South Australia who have been outstanding supporters of football at the grassroots and talent development levels across the past decade,” said SANFL CEO Jake Parkinson.

“The fact that they have now elevated their support to the SANFL Macca’s League is testament to the strength of our competition and to their passion for South Australian football.

“To have an internationally-recognised brand of the standing of McDonald’s aligned with SANFL footy at the highest level gives us a great position from which to further grow our game.”

The SANFL Macca’s League sponsorship will see the famous golden arches logo take pride of place alongside the SANFL shield on club guernseys and includes significant branding and activation across the league.

McDonald’s will continue to support the SANFL’s U16 and U18 State teams as part of the new agreement, which runs for the next two seasons with an option for a further four years.

McDonald’s South Australia licensee, Alan Brodie, said “we’re delighted to continue our commitment to the league as well as support grassroots sports across the state to foster new talent. We’re excited to kick off the season with a new opportunity to keep SANFL at the top of the game and the community passionate about sport.”

December 08, 2016 - PRE-SEASON WITH BRAD KELLER
READ MORE +

It has been a busy period for the players leading into their Christmas break as we have been on the training track for an extra week to most clubs. The players have really impressed me with their buy-in to the program and the way that they have embraced the changes which has made my job easy. This is one of the toughest times of the year for the players, particularly physically, however we are seeing some great improvements already which will give us a great base to work with in the new year. Their commitment to learn and improve has been second to none and they have all set high standards individually and collectively. The vision of the club has been great and the standards are being driven by all coaches, players and support staff. There is plenty more improvement to come from this young group of players and I am looking forward to seeing them progress leading into the 2017 season.

December 07, 2016 - LIAM LEAPS TO THE BAY
READ MORE +

Glenelg has kicked off its recruiting campaign by securing delisted Richmond giant Liam McBean for next season.

Measuring in at 202cm and 93kg, McBean was the VFL’s leading goal kicker in 2015 as he spent the majority of his four years on Richmond’s list in attack.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, Glenelg coach Matt Lokan said McBean would also provide ruck support for the tireless Warrick McGinty, who enjoyed a breakout season in 2016.

McBean, 22, managed just five AFL matches but has booted a total of 143 majors at VFL level in his four years since being selected at pick No.33 in the 2012 AFL National Draft.

The former Calder Cannon – who played in the TAC Cup with fellow Tiger Darcy Bailey – has been joined at Brighton Road by West Adelaide wingman Tom Schott.

Schott – who can also play across half-forward – could be a tricky match-up given he measures in at 190cm and 89kg.

The 22-year-old has played three League matches for the Bloods after originating from the remote country town of Andamooka.

Key forward Jack Casey – who played under former Glenelg captain Ben Mules at Kalangadoo in the south-east – has relocated to Adelaide to further his football career.

Lokan also chats about the positive attitude displayed by All-Australian Under-18s Jonty Scharenberg and Sam Walker, who were surprisingly overlooked by AFL clubs last month.

December 06, 2016 - EXCLUSIVE - PLAYER SIGNINGS
READ MORE +

We are pleased to announce that Liam McBean (ex-Richmond) has agreed to join the Glenelg Tigers next year. Liam is a key forward/ruckman who is 2.02 cm tall. Liam played five AFL games at Richmond over his four years.
Liam will offer great support to Josh Scott and Warrick McGinty during season 2017.

The club has also agreed on terms with West Adelaide for Tom Schott. Tom is a wingman/half forward who played 4 Senior games for West Adelaide and the State Under 18’s however was troubled by an ankle injury this year and managed just five games.

Jack Casey has joined the club from our country zone. Jack played with Kalangadoo (coached by former club captain Ben Mules) this year and won the medal in the Mid- South East Football League. He is a strong marking forward and an accurate kick.

November 30, 2016 - GLENELGS AFL TALENT DRAIN
READ MORE +

Glenelg's AFL talent drain

The Club fully supports players who progress to the elite level of AFL football and wouldn’t and can’t stand in the way of same. No one begrudges any player, staff member or coach bettering themselves at AFL level as it is an outstanding achievement - but it does come at some cost. Consider Glenelg’s case:

  • 16 players drafted since 2011
  • Only 3 players have returned to the Bays following their AFL experience
  • Every SANFL club receives the same Talent Fee of $50k each year regardless of how many players are AFL drafted, this is simply not equitable

Following the Draft, the Rookie Draft presents its own peculiarities. To lose an 18 year old to an interstate Club is difficult enough, but to lose him to the Crows or Power and have him play against his own Club and mates is difficult for all Clubs. And of the course the young men who are overlooked, what is in place to assist them overcome their disappointment apart from family and a few close friends ?

This is life in the AFL for SANFL Clubs and importantly the players at our level, we are just part of the system.

Glenelg Club at a glance

We compete in one of the most competitive postcodes for hospitality in South Australia. It is a matter of quality product, quality service and price. To that end our kitchen team, led by Chef's Shane and Luke, have done a great job in producing quality meals for the bistro, special nights, functions and even Sunday breakfasts – in fact we have served 49,208 meals for the year. Check us out for schnitzels on Mondays, Kids eat free on Tuesday and Saturday nights, Steak night on Wednesdays along with a  host of other Chef Specials during the week.

‘Glenelg’ Women

Many in society are under the misconception that footy clubs are ‘blokie places’. The AFL has evidenced increased female involvement in administration and playing levels – Glenelg is no different, consider the following:

Key Positions

  • Finance Manager
  • Commercial Operations
  • Marketing Manager
  • Functions Supervisor
  • Physiotherapist
  • Property Steward
  • Head Trainers – Junior and Seniors
  • Senior Assistant Coach

Our total staff and volunteer breakdown is that of 54.3% females and 45.67% males. Then there is participation in Glenelg’s active football programs which shows 11,411 or 36.8% are females of all ages.

November 16, 2016 - FUTURE PROOFING LOCAL FOOTY
READ MORE +
The community based focus of Aussie Rules as many knew it changed forever when the AFL not only established the national competition but assumed naming rights for the game itself - most now know the game as AFL Football as opposed to Aussie rules. Until recently the 'pecking order' in football was that of AFL/ State League/ Community Leagues, it remains so, but there is now a much bigger gap between AFL and SANFL with the latter being closer to community competitions. 

Elite sports teams conduct many 'press the flesh' promotional campaigns in the community, but it is questionable whether many of those actually leave a footprint following the visit. Lots of goodwill, autographs and clinics but little other to help protect the future of the game in the community itself. No fault can be placed with the elite Clubs as they are very large business entities with their own challenges, future proofing the game requires a more holistic approach. 

Many country community based clubs confront the major issue of seriously declining numbers of volunteers who are willing to contribute. The outcome? - too much left to too few and consequent 'burn-out'. Alternatively Clubs often secure a 'White Knight' who agrees to assist with the financial challenges, becomes involved with the very best of intentions only to depart due of lack of support or premierships!!!

The way forward must involve assistance which provides better organisational structures, improved coaching resources and better corporate governance. In addition Clubs could access templates for financial reporting, licensed operations, catering, sponsorships and football operations. Action is required to future proof the game at community level.

In other news, we have had three players retire over the Christmas break. Dylan McNeil is taking a year off to focus on his career with Ernst and Young. Dylan has battled injuries over the past few seasons but showed glimpses of what he is capable of later in the year. Shaun Tapp struggled with injuries last season and has lost the motivation required to play at SANFL level.Lachlan Button has advised the club he will not be playing in season 2016. He has been a long serving player at the footy club and a member of the Club’s leadership group. Lachlan has also struggled for consistency over the past few seasons due to long term injuries. Lachlan will now be pursuing studies which will prevent him from be able to attend training.

We wish Dylan, Shaun and Lachlan all the best in the future, and thank them for their services for the Glenelg Football Club.

Stay tuned for information regarding our upcoming trial matches.
