The Glenelg Football Club would like to congratulate James Sellar on a stellar career. James began his career at Glenelg in the development squads before playing Under 17’s in 2004.

He was drafted to the Adelaide Football Club as pick 14 in the 2006 National Draft, the same year he made his league debut for the GFC.

James found himself in Melbourne colours at the end of 2011 where he spent the next two years before heading to Perth and playing 31 games for South Fremantle.

We were delighted to have James return to the club in 2016 where he has held the role as our key defender for the past two years. This year saw James play his 100th game for the club.

James has an astute football brain and was member of our leadership group.  He set a great example for others to follow and has been a mentor to many of our players since his return.

While we are disappointed to see him retire, we thank him for his commitment and passion for the GFC. He is a person of great integrity who I am sure will continue to have an impact on the football landscape. 

We wish him, his wife Sonia and daughter Skylar all the very best for the future.

November 22, 2017 - CROW EATER DARCY FOGARTY PLAYING FOR MORE THAN JUST HIMSELF
WHEN South Australia’s top AFL draft hope Darcy Fogarty has his name called out at Friday’s annual player lottery it won’t just be a reward for his hard work but also a thank you to the small southeast country town of Lucindale.

BY ANDREW CAPEL 

WHEN South Australia’s top AFL draft hope Darcy Fogarty has his name called out at Friday’s annual player lottery it won’t just be a reward for his hard work but also a thank you to the small southeast country town of Lucindale.

“It will be for all the people who helped get me here,’’ the powerful Glenelg utility said.

“Without them I wouldn’t be in this position, so I will be forever grateful.’’

Fogarty, who was born in Adelaide and moved to Mt Ebenezer near Alice Springs before settling at Lucindale with his family at age three, said his football career would not have taken off without the support of his local community.

“The town has been very supportive of my football journey,’’ said the 18-year-old, who has boarded at Adelaide’s Rostrevor College for the past three years.

GIRO THE RUNNING MACHINE

“My parents separated when I was young and when I made my first state team in under-12s mum, who was supporting five kids, couldn’t afford to send me to Canberra because of the cost.

“So the community rallied around me, filled a few fundraising tins around the town and managed to scrape together enough money to allow me to go.

“The town did the same when I made the under-15 (state) team to play in Sydney, so I owe it plenty.

“To get drafted would show the people who supported me that their help didn’t go to waste and hopefully they will get a bit of a kick out of me being in the AFL as well.’’

Lucindale — home of former Glenelg stars Stephen Copping and Andrew McKay — is located 345km southeast of Adelaide and has a population of just 400.

“It’s a tight-knit community where everyone knows each other and supports each other,’’ said Fogarty, an AFL Academy member.

“To represent the town at AFL level would mean a lot to me.’’

Fogarty, who also paid tribute to his family, in particular his uncle and aunty, for helping to send him to Rostrevor, had an injury riddled 2017 but has been ranked by recruiting expert Gary Buckenara as the best prospect in this year’s draft pool.

“He’s a tough, physical and imposing type when up and going,’’ said Buckenara, a four-times Hawthorn premiership player. “He’s a great mark and a damaging kick and is big enough to play as a leading target in attack.

“I believe he has a huge upside and for a club in need of a future third tall forward or possibly a defender, I’ve got him rated as No. 1.

“I don’t think he’ll go No. 1 but I would put him there because I think he’s a class player and will be a star.’’

Fogarty, strongly built at 192cm and 92kg, played four league games for Glenelg this year but battled a knee injury all season and called an early end to his campaign in August when the pain became so bad he had surgery to repair a small meniscus tear.

His struggles and subsequent form drop that saw him battle through the AFL under-18 championships has seen him largely drop out of the top-three conversation among the 18 AFL clubs.

At the start of the year, Fogarty had been in number one contention.

While he is still expected to be claimed in the top 10, there is an outside chance he could slip to the Adelaide Crows at No. 12.

“I had a frustrating season,’’ Fogarty said.

“While I was lucky enough to play some league football I was sore for a lot of the year and didn’t think I played my role at Glenelg as well as I should have.’’

The injury not only ended Fogarty’s season prematurely but meant he could not test at the AFL draft combine.

Instead he was one of four previously injured top draft hopefuls who ran a 2km time trial in front of recruiters at Etihad Stadium last Friday, including possible No. 1 pick Cameron Rayner.

Fogarty – understood to be on the radar of North Melbourne, Collingwood, St Kilda and the Western Bulldogs – ran the best time (7.33 seconds) of the quartet.

He says he is now “back to normal’’ and will be ready for the start of pre-season training with an AFL club.

While he has cut his teeth as a key forward, Fogarty views himself as a big-bodied, bullocking midfielder in the mould of Carlton’s Patrick Cripps.

“I like the contested stuff and think I can play in the middle of the ground and then go forward and have an impact,’’ he said.

November 17, 2017 - WATERHOUSE JOINS THE WOMEN'S LEAGUE
Former Young Matildas captain and Adelaide United player Jessica Waterhouse sets her sights on AFLW after joining Glenelg.
READ MORE +

BY Daniela Abbracciavento, daniela.abbracciavento@news.com.au, CoastCity Weekly Messenger

JESSICA Waterhouse was captaining the Young Matildas at just 15 and played three seasons of soccer with Adelaide United in the W-League.

Now, the talented athlete is the latest to switch codes and will line up with Glenelg in next year’s SANFLW competition.

Waterhouse, 20, heads to the Bay after one season of Australian rules.

She played for Christies Beach’s division two side this season and helped the Saints claim their inaugural Adelaide Footy League women’s premiership.

“I had been playing soccer since I was four, so it was all I had ever known,” Waterhouse, of Noarlunga, says.

“I represented the state and the country and I feel like I got what I wanted out of the sport.

“Over the past few years I wasn’t enjoying soccer any more and I saw that a lot of the girls were switching to footy, so I thought I’d give it a crack.”

The former midfielder was the youngest United player to make her W-League debut in 2012 before she skippered the Young Matildas at the AFC under-16 qualifiers in the Philippines.

She then lined up for Metro United in the women’s Premier League before hanging up her soccer boots at the end of last year.

Waterhouse, who is the niece of former Fremantle and Port Adelaide SANFL player Clive Waterhouse, hopes to use the SANFLW as a springboard to the national women’s league.

“I was pretty bad at the start and I didn’t even know how to use my hands to catch,” the half-forward says.

“But I’ve picked it up and it’s been a pretty easy transition because the girls are super- supportive.

“I am definitely looking at getting into the AFLW.

“It’s happened so fast, so I just want to make the most of it at Glenelg and I’ll be trying to learn as much as possible.”

November 14, 2017 - MOTLOP MAGIC AT THE BAY
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK

Glenelg has secured the signature of Marlon Motlop, reigniting the Motlop surname for a second generation at Brighton Road.

The 2015 Barrie Robran Medal winner has decided to switch SANFL clubs, leaving North Adelaide to join his uncle Mark Motlop as a senior player of the Tigers.

Mark Motlop played 43 games and kicked 26 goals for the Bays during a strong era for the club from 1983 to 1985.

And now his nephew will also don the black and goal, with Marlon keep to recapture the form which earned him a berth in the West End State team two years ago.

A silky-skilled midfielder, Marlon Motlop averaged 17 disposals in his 10 appearances this season in the Macca's League, before having his campaign ended early due to shoulder surgery.

The 27-year-old - who measures in at 181cm and 81kg - also appeared in five AFL matches for the Power, where he was at Alberton between 2008 and 2011.

Marlon Motlop currently works with Port Adelaide, where he is the club's Aboriginal Programs Coordinator.

He will join fellow indigenous stars Terry and Ian Milera at Tigerland while APY Lands wingman Dom Barry could also play alongside him if he's overlooked in the AFL National or Rookie Draft.

READ MORE +

Adelaide has its first-ever set of sisters after securing young South Australian star Jess Allan with pick No.8 in the 2017 AFL Women’s Draft. Jess, 18, is the younger sister of Crows premiership utility Sarah. Their father Keith played 69 games for SANFL club Central District between 1987 and 1992. An emerging leader, Jess captained the South Australian Under-18 team this year and was named vice-captain of the Allies. The All Australian ruck/forward was one of six players selected by the Crows on Wednesday.

X-factor midfielder/forward Eloise Jones joined Adelaide with pick No.24 in the draft. Jones played alongside Allan in the SA and Allies teams, also earning All-Australian selection. The 18-year-old former basketballer, who turned down a US College scholarship to pursue football, was named the Allies Most Valuable Player at the Under-18 National Championships.

BY RILEY BEVERIDGE - FOX SPORTS

AFLW Draft 2017: Eloise Jones hoping to follow in the footsteps of ‘incredible’ idol Erin Phillips

ELOISE Jones couldn’t have a better mentor waiting for her at Adelaide.

Just as skilful running the point as she is at eluding tacklers in the midfield, Jones was nearly lost to footy when she turned her attentions towards a basketball scholarship in the United States four years ago.

Having watched the likes of Erin Phillips dominate for the Opals and in the WNBA for years, Jones had found motivation in her quest to play basketball. Her mind was nearly made up.

Then came the introduction of the women’s league. All of a sudden, footy had a purpose again.

And in Phillips, who had also made the move back to footy, Jones had someone she could look up to.

“When I stopped in about 2013, women’s footy was going nowhere,” Jones tells foxfooty.com.au.

“There was no pathway and my parents really wanted me to focus on my basketball, because that can obviously take you somewhere.”

The timing was perfect for Jones.

Returning to footy seamlessly, the classy midfielder won MVP honours with both South Australia and the Allies in the national championships earlier this year.

That resulted in a second All-Australian guernsey for Jones, following the first guernsey she claimed back in 2013 — coincidentally when she last thought footy could be her way forward.

She’s now a certainty to land at the Crows with the club’s first pick in Wednesday’s AFLW draft.

And when she does, one of the first things she’ll do is seek out her new co-captain for advice.

“I’d really like some pointers on her weights program,” Jones laughs.

“She’s an incredible athlete. It would just be amazing to be able to work in the space around her.

“Growing up, I’d always watch her at the Olympics. She’s such a multi-talented person. Last year I just found it incredible how you can be so good at two sports.

“To make the Olympics team, then come back and absolutely smash everyone at the Crows, I think that’s just amazing. She’s an incredible athlete and I really do look up to her.”

But balancing the two can be quite tricky.

Although Phillips perfected the juggling act of footy and basketball, Jones found it more difficult.

“I was becoming a bit rough,” she laughs.

“I was taking people out, which probably wasn’t the best thing. I was trying to take a few speckies and I started getting fouled out.”

But Phillips won’t be Jones’ only mentor at the Crows.

Adelaide coach Bec Goddard has already made a lasting impression on the talented teenager, having led the Allies side Jones played for throughout the national championships in July.

Goddard rates Jones highly. And the respect between the two is mutual.

“She’s really lovely and she’s an amazing coach,” Jones says.

“I really like the way she coaches. She always looks for the best in people and she’s quite honest, which is obviously a good thing. She’s not going to lie to you.

“Every single person in that team responded really well to her.”

But while Jones is excited to start working with her new mentors, she’s keen to acknowledge those who have already provided motivation throughout her junior career.

Mainly, her mum and dad.

Jones credits her “footy nut” father for her love of both footy and Essendon. Growing up, she was constantly in Bombers gear. Even she describes herself as “a red and black child”.

So, how will she go supporting the Crows?

“Look,” she says, before pausing and bursting out in laughter.

The conversation goes no further. But Jones is more open talking about the influence of her parents.

“With footy and basketball, my parents have driven me pretty much everywhere,” she says.

“Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am. I wouldn’t be able to get places. They’ve put a lot of time and effort into my sport and I think they almost feel the same emotions as I do.

“When something bad happens, they feel that disappointment. If something good happens, they get more excited than I do.

“Having that support network is really great. My whole family is really tight-knit and they’re all really supportive. My parents are absolutely stoked with the opportunity I’ve got.”

They’ll have even more reason to be excited come Wednesday’s AFLW draft.

As will Jones. From someone who didn’t believe footy could provide a future for her four years ago, the silky on-baller is now on the verge of becoming the league’s next big thing.

And she’s thankful for those who have paved the way for her footy journey.

“It’s really fortunate we have those girls who are that talented and who could prove that girls can play AFL,” Jones says.

“We’re here to play. We’re not bad at this. We really, really love this sport and we’re actually really good.”

October 05, 2017 - JESS ALLAN SHINES AT AFLW COMBINE
READ MORE +

BY Marc McGowan

TWO ADELAIDE-bound prospects were among those to shine brightest at this week's inaugural NAB AFL Women's Draft Combine at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne.

Key-position pair Jessica Allan and Jasmyn Hewett already loomed as early selections for the reigning premier Crows before brilliant performances in testing.

There was also plenty to like about athletic rucks Pippa Smyth and Bridie Kennedy.

Nelson Bay's Smyth won the 20m sprint, while Dandenong Stingrays' Kennedy took out the 2km time trial and the Yo-Yo test, a high-intensity modification on the beep test.

Coolangatta's Ruby Blair was the standout in the agility test.

The AFL's female football talent Operations Manager Aasta O'Connor was thrilled with how the players embraced the combine.

"We're all stepping into the unknown, in a way, but it was just really special," O'Connor told AFL.com.au.

"To see the camaraderie built [among] the 46 players and doing something like this on a national scale for the first time was great.

"It was something I'm sure every player will be really proud to be part of. Essentially, it is a one-stop shop for the clubs to get as much information on the player as possible, so there's always going to be improvements … but it's something that's really of value."

Allan is the 18-year-old sister of Adelaide premiership player Sarah Allan, and starred for the Bec Goddard-coached Allies at the NAB AFL Women's Under-18 Championships in Queensland in July.

The Salisbury and Glenelg product won the vertical and running vertical jumps with respective efforts of 61cm and 76cm and placed sixth in the 20m sprint (3.34sec).

"Jess had an amazing under-18s carnival up on the Gold Coast earlier in the year and is a really young leader, the way in which she conducts herself off the field," O'Connor said.

"She's ruck, half-forward, half-back and you sort of think, 'Wow'.

"She's 184cm and so driven, so I'm sure whichever club takes her – you'd be crazy not to if you're the Crows – but I'm sure she'll find herself on a list. As soon as she gets into that club environment, she'll work really hard and have an impact year one."

Hewett, 24, finished in the top 10 in all six physical tests, including ranking second in the Yo-Yo, the vertical jump and the 2km time trial.

She is originally from regional South Australia, but had not played football until relocating to Darwin last year and joining St Mary's, where she quickly became the talk of the competition.

O'Connor was also impressed with Hobart key-position talent Loveth Ochayi, who has nominated in the Victorian part of the October 18 draft.

The 18-year-old could yet be a target in next year's draft for the North Melbourne-AFL Tasmania side set to enter the AFLW in 2019.

"Loveth missed nationals with a hand injury this year, but was consistent across all testing," O'Connor said.

"She's someone who has jumped out of the box a bit the last minute and clubs would be looking at her, whereas prior to the combine she might not have been on as many people's list."

September 06, 2017 - 2017 ADVERTISER SANFL TEAM OF THE YEAR
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK

Selectors have released the 40-player squad for The 2017 Advertiser SANFL Team of the Year, with Woodville-West Torrens and Sturt dominating selection.

Featuring at least one representative from each SANFL club, The Advertiser SANFL Team of the Year squad will be trimmed to a placed team of 21 at a function on Tuesday September 19.

The coach of the 2017 Advertiser SANFL Team of the Year will also be named, together with the captain and vice-captain.

The Eagles and Sturt – last year’s Grand Finalists – each have eight players chosen, including the 2016 Team of the Year captain Zane Kirkwood and his deputy Luke Thompson.

Double Blues Sam Colquhoun and Pat Wilson are new faces, with Colquhoun enjoying a strong year since arriving from the Power and Wilson posting a breakout season in the midfield after missing last year’s premiership with a shoulder injury.

Eagles recruit Jake Johansen has found plenty of the ball since crossing over from Glenelg while Joe Sinor has been a revelation across half-back for the Eagles.

Elimination Finalists Norwood and Central District each have five representatives, Bulldogs ball magnets Travis Schiller and Nick Holman have had sensational seasons while Redlegs Mitch Grigg and Matt Panos will be strong candidates to start in the midfield.

Four Port Adelaide players are present with Ken Farmer Medallist Brett Eddy almost certain to lock in the full forward position while big-bodied midfielder Brendon Ah Chee has produced an influential season in the centre square.

Glenelg and South Adelaide each have three players, with APY Lands product Dom Barry catching the eye with his run and carry from the wing for the Bays while Matt Rose has been arguably the Panthers’ most consistent player in 2017.

Adelaide veteran Scott Thompson and Harrison Wigg have been integral cogs in the Crows’ midfield in the Macca’s League, with the latter averaging in excess of 25 disposals.

Cellar-dwellars West Adelaide and North Adelaide each have one player chosen, with Kaine Stevens and Lewis Hender both deserving of consideration in the final 21.

Players were selected on their form across the entire minor round, with AFL-listed players eligible for Macca’s League finals also considered eligible for the Advertiser SANFL Team of the Year.

This year’s team will be selected by SANFL’s Adam Kelly, Tom Hurley and Zac Milbank, Channel 7’s Mark Soderstrom and The Advertiser’s Chief SANFL Writer, Warren Partland.

READ MORE +

ROUND 18 GLENELG V WEST ADELAIDE

Glenelg 12.7.79
West Adelaide 14.8.92

Our final minor round game had us take on West Adelaide at City Mazda Stadium in a game which would determine if we would play finals for the first time since 2011.

After an improved season, we left it to the last game to consolidate a finals berth but this wasn’t to be the case losing to West by 13 points in a tight and hard-fought contest. A shattering result as this meant we missed finals only on percentage to Central Districts.

Although the result didn’t go our way we still had some players that performed very well. Jonty Scharenberg continued his great month of football having 26 disposals across half back. Brad Agnew and James Sellar were also rock solid in our back half and Ziggy Vitkunas provided us a target up forward kicking 3 goals and having 8 marks. Lachy Earl gave us first use through the middle of ground and Jackson Edwards provided a great link player through the wings and across half forward.

Statistically we had over 40 more disposals than West and were dominant in clearances but the difference in the game was that West capitalised on their opportunity in front on goal and we didn’t.

All in all, Saturday’s game was extremely disappointing for players, staff and supporters. Our players and coaching staff understand the opportunity we had and let slip through our fingers and now have to wait for next year to correct this.  

I would like to thank all the people that made the trip to Richmond on Saturday. We have some of the most passionate supporters in the competition and although I understand your frustration, hopefully you can all see the improvement our team has made in 2017 and the direction we are heading.

Regards,
Matthew Lokan

August 24, 2017 - 2017 STATEWIDE SUPER SHIELD STARTS SUNDAY
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK 

Former West Adelaide hardman Luke Norman says he’s excited to coach Glenelg’s Under-14 Girls team in the Statewide Super Shield starting on Sunday.

Norman – who played 107 SANFL matches for the Bloods between 1997 and 2005 – is embracing his new role at Brighton Road as he continues to be an assistant to Bays Macca’s League coach Matt Lokan.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, Norman also revealed his daughter would be donning the black and gold, having kicked 20 goals for Plympton FC this year. 

The 45-year-old – who coached Sturt into the 2009 Macca’s League Grand Final – encouraged as many male past players as possible to get behind female football, particularly in terms of teaching skills and game tactics.

Now in its third season, the Statewide Super Shield involved all eight non-AFL aligned clubs fielding an Under-14 and Under-17 team for a four-week competition played at official SANFL venues.

The Under-17 competition will culminate in a series of finals at Peter Motley Oval on Sunday September 17, while there is no major round for the Under-14 Girls.

The clubs are split into the Crows and Power Divisions under the same alignment as the AFL’s Next Generation Academy system which is used for Indigenous and Multicultural youth also participating in Australian Football.

August 23, 2017 - JAMES SELLAR TO CELEBRATE A CENTURY
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK 

Glenelg’s James Sellar is well aware of what’s riding on his 100th Macca’s League game against West Adelaide on Saturday.

Win and the Tigers can claim their first finals berth in six seasons. Lose and the Bays will endure another frustrating September watching five rivals chase premiership glory at Adelaide Oval.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 28-year-old said he would stress how great the lure of playing in the major round is, given he is one of only a handful of Tigers’ remaining from their most recent appearance in the 2011 Elimination Final.

Reaching triple figures at Brighton Road means Sellar will fulfill his ambition to ”belong” to a football club, having also played with Adelaide and Melbourne in the AFL and South Fremantle in the WAFL.

Growing up at Glenelg Primary School, Sellar used to play ”scratch matches” during recess and lunchtime as a school boy before joining fellow Bays product Bryce Gibbs in attending Brighton Secondary School.

Also an accomplished volleyballer as a junior, Sellar once earned selection in an Australian Youth team before choosing to concentrate on preparing himself for the AFL Draft.

Making his Macca’s League debut in Round 1 of 2006, Sellar recalled how he had four goals to his name by half-time of the clash with Norwood at The Parade.

The versatile utility – who measures in at 195cm and 90kg – also produced a moment for the memory bank when he kicked the winning goal for the Tigers against Sturt in Round 13 of 2010 – featured in the video clip above.

QBE Insurance used its extensive network of specialists and builders to come up with an innovative plan which delivered the best player facilities we have ever had within a very tight timeframe.

August 16, 2017 - TIGER TALL REACHES CENTURY
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK

As soon as Warrick McGinty arrived at Brighton Road he was determined to play 100 games for the Glenelg Football Club.

And after Saturday’s Macca’s League clash against North Adelaide at Gliderol Stadium, the 27-year-old will have his name etched on the No.25 locker at Tigerland.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, McGinty said he was overwhelmed by the history at the club upon arriving from Mount Gambier as an Under-17 in 2007.

The tireless ruckman has since flourished into becoming one of the club’s most consistent footballers after turning his back on a promising basketball career as a teenager.

Making his debut against the Roosters in Round 3 of 2010, McGinty is one of the few Bays players left since the club last featured in the Macca’s League major round in 2011.

As a result, he and skipper Andrew Bradley have been relaying an important message to the rest of the playing group as the Tigers attempt to lock away a place in September with victory against the Roosters from 2.10pm on Saturday.

August 01, 2017 - CROWEATER CATCH UP WITH JACKSON EDWARDS
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK 

Glenelg midfielder Jackson Edwards is aiming to continue his promising development after making his Macca’s League debut against Adelaide in Bordertown on Sunday.

After a consistent AFL National Championship campaign for the McDonald’s SA U18 team, Edwards showed plenty of poise against the Crows SANFL side en route to collecting 17 disposals and eight marks – including one courageous one-handed grab.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 17-year-old – the only BankSA Rookie in Week 1 of Round 15 – said he enjoyed testing himself physically against the bigger bodies present at senior level.

Measuring in at 185cm and 77kg, Edwards displays similar traits to that of Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury with his left-foot kick and lengthy frame for an onballer.

Eligible to be selected by Adelaide under the father-son rule at this year’s AFL National Draft, the well-spoken teenager said he has relished the guidance he’s received from both of his parents, Tyson and Mandy.

A dual premiership player with the Crows, Tyson coached Jackson’s victorious U18 Macca’s Cup winning team last year as the Bays overcame North Adelaide in dramatic circumstances after the final siren at Adelaide Oval.

Currently studying at Henley High, Edwards is a member of a star-studded school football team which also features fellow McDonald’s SA Under-18 players Izak Rankine and Jack Lukosius.

His younger brothers Luke and Brodie are also budding footballers, with Luke playing with the Tigers’ Under-16 side and State U15 team this year while Brodie is rising up the ranks with the Henley Sharks Football Club.

July 26, 2017 - BAYS ROAD TO BORDERTOWN
READ MORE +

BY ZAC MILBANK 

Glenelg’s crucial Round 15 clash with Adelaide at the Bordertown Oval on Sunday could be an eye to the future.

Keen to further their strong ties with their country zone, the Tigers will play the SANFL Crows in the Macca’s League from 1.10pm.

A curtain-raiser featuring local female talent will take place from 11.30am, with Tigers chief executive Glenn Elliott revealing the club could rotate the fixture against the Crows between Bordertown and Keith on an annual basis.

The Tigers also plan to play an annual pre-season match in Mount Gambier while also conducting a series of workshops with local club administrators, coaches and volunteers.

Those workshops would focus on key areas such as governance, finance, communications and coaching with presentations conducted by Bays staff members such as Elliott and senior coach Matt Lokan.

Since 2003, the Tigers have also been servicing their regional zone through a series of junior talent academies in Naracoorte, Millicent, Bordertown and Mount Gambier.

The Bays have several players from the South East playing in their Macca’s League outfit, including captain Andrew Bradley, defender Brad Agnew and ruckman Warrick McGinty.

Despite not being able to play in the match due to a broken collarbone, Bradley said the players were looking forward to playing at the picturesque venue, which usually plays host to the Bordertown Roosters in the Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara Football League.

Bradley expects to be sidelined for at least a month after undergoing surgery on his shoulder on Monday night, paving the way for potential Crows father-son Jackson Edwards to possibly make his Macca’s League debut.

Edwards was one of the Bays’ best in the Reserves last Sunday, collecting 26 possessions while unheralded midfielder Riley McFarlane could also return after recovering from a shin ailment.

July 16, 2017 - MILERAS DAY OUT AT THE BAY!
READ MORE +

BY ANDREW CAPEL - THE ADVERTISER 

GLENELG roared back into finals contention as forwards Terry Milera and Liam McBean enjoyed days out at the Bay on Saturday.

The former AFL-listed players kicked 10 goals between them – double South Adelaide’s total – as the Tigers thumped the Panthers by 55 points to snap a three-game losing streak and jump back into the top five.

In a match crucial to both teams finals hopes, Glenelg – chasing its first finals spot since 2011 – won every quarter, capitalising on superior skills and greater efficiency.

Its nine-goal win came despite losing the inside-50 count 59-43 and having the same number of scoring shots as South. The Tigers booted an accurate 16.7 to the Panthers’ woeful 5.18.

“Our team defence across the whole ground was fantastic and that pressure meant we were able to force them into mistakes and capitalise ourselves,’’ said Tigers coach Matthew Lokan.

“In contrast we kicked the ball at 72 per cent efficiency, which we haven’t done for five or six weeks.’’ While the free-falling Panthers, who have now lost six of their past seven games after starting the season 5-1, were wasteful with the ball, Milera and McBean made the most of their opportunities to prove difference-makers in front of the sticks.

Former St Kilda forward Milera kicked six goals without a miss while ex-Richmond tall McBean booted four straight.

They capitalised on some excellent service from former Melbourne midfielder Dom Barry (22 disposals, two goals), who is pushing his claims for another shot at the AFL, captain Andrew Bradley (27 disposals) and onballers Matthew Snook and Lachie Earl, who combined for 53 possessions.

It all started in the ruck where Warrick McGinty was superb, finishing with 25 disposals and seven marks.

“We built this up as a finals game and it was great for the guys to be able to respond in the right manner after what had been a tough three weeks,’’ Lokan said.

“It was a very even performance with everyone getting over 10 disposals which is something we have been trying to get – an ability to spread the load.’’

The emphatic win was just Glenelg’s second in its past 10 clashes against South.

Panthers coach Garry Hocking lamented his side’s poor skills and wastefulness.

“We missed goals which didn’t enable us to put any scoreboard pressure on them,’’ he said.

“Poor goalkicking is poor footy. We’re still playing some good footy but it’s too patchy and when we get an opportunity to hurt the opposition we’re not.

“When you win the inside-50 count and have the same amount of scoring shots you are doing something right but our goalkicking is costing us, so we’ve got some work to do.’’

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.
