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.

November 02, 2016 - CROWEATER CATCH UP - MITCHELL HINGE
READ MORE +

By ZAC MILBANK | Twitter @zacmilbank

Glenelg defender Mitch Hinge knows all about making sacrifices on and off the field as he pushes his name forward for the AFL National Draft.

One of six siblings growing up in the small country town of Mundulla in the state’s south-east, Hinge is the youngest of four boys and the fifth of six siblings.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, the 18-year-old also said the experience of moving out of his comfort zone to board at Sacred Heart College in Adelaide would hold him in good stead should his name be called by a non-South Australian AFL club.



Hinge’s oldest brother John played one AFL game for Adelaide and is currently employed by the Power, providing him with great insight into the professionalism required at elite level.

John Hinge – who also played 151 SANFL games in a fine career with Glenelg and Sturt – made his name as a resolute defender who could also push up through the midfield earlier in his career.

Mitch Hinge likens himself to a fellow left-footer, Hawthorn premiership backman Grant Birchall, as he looks to use his penetrating kick.

Playing in all of the McDonald’s SA U18 matches this year across half-back, Hinge enjoyed a successful season which culminated in the Bays winning the U18 Macca’s Cup and Sacred Heart claiming honours in the Secondary School Knockout Cup.

November 02, 2016 - GLENELG APPOINT HIGH PERFORMANCE MANAGER
READ MORE +

We are excited to announce the appointment of our High Performance Manager for 2017, Brad Keller. Previously Brad has been the Peel Thunder Football Club (WAFL) strength and conditioning coach, whilst also assisting at Fremantle Football Club under the guidance of Jason Weber. From 2013 until 2015 Brad was the strength and conditioning coach for the WA U16 State football academy and had a similar role with the Perth Glory National Youth League team for the 2014-15 season.

During Brad's strength and conditioning roles over the last 6 years, he has been responsible for periodising individual programs for athletes, monitoring (using various technology; most notably GPS and wellness apps), testing (physical, technical, tactical), game day rotations, recovery, injury prevention, rehabilitation and liaising with coaching and medical staff.

Brad is in the final stages of his doctorate entitled ‘Developing expertise in Australian youth soccer players’ at Edith Cowan University. Previous to this he completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (Human Movement and Health Sciences) and finished an Honours project entitled ‘The relationship between training load and injury in elite youth beach volleyball players’ at the University of South Australia. 

Brad is very passionate about working with elite athletes both junior and senior and enjoys helping them develop as they strive towards their goals. We look forward to having Brad on board in 2017.

October 31, 2016 - NARELLE SMITH - FEMALE COACH OF THE YEAR
READ MORE +

By ZAC MILBANK | Twitter @zacmilbank

More than 30 of South Australia’s finest coaches have been honoured at the annual SANFL Coaches Awards Dinner at Adelaide Oval. Together with 48 Level 2 Coaching Course graduates, the mentors represented a broad cross-section of both senior and junior levels, together with metropolitan and country areas.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, Female Coach of the Year Narelle Smith revealed her pride at being nominated by the Glenelg Football Club.



In her first season with the Tigers, Smith worked with the entire senior squad in her role as assistant Reserves Coach.

Combining her job at Brighton Road with her role as South Australian Senior Women’s coach, Smith has also previously worked as an AFL assistant with Melbourne for the Women’s All-Star games.

Confirming she will continue working alongside Glenelg coach Matt Lokan in 2017, Smith said she was excited by the prospect of the Senior SANFL Women’s League starting next year.

On Friday night, Smith said rubbing shoulders with several outstanding coaches was an invaluable experience, with AFL Coaching Development Manager Lawrie Woodman presenting the three recipients of the AFL High Performance Certificates.

Lokan and Norwood premiership mentors Nathan Bassett and Ben Warren completed the week-long AFL High Performance course, which focused on the use of technology, public relations and the role of coaches as program managers.

Former Crows fan favourite Graham Johncock (Mallee Park) was Norwood’s recipient of the Senior Country Coach of the Year Award while his ex-captain at Adelaide, Nathan van Berlo, was one of those to complete his Level 2 Coaching Accreditation.

SANFL High Performance Manager Brenton Phillips presented the SANFL League Club Centre of Excellence Coach of the Year Awards, with Glenelg’s U16 premiership mentor Darren Tull the Talent Coach of the Year and Central’s John Presbury the Youth Development Squad Award winner Sturt premiership coach Marty Mattner had his memorable rookie season capped off with the SANFL League Premiership Coach Award.

October 13, 2016 - SPEED THRILLS AT AFL COMBINE
READ MORE +

By ZAC MILBANK | Twitter @zacmilbank

SANFL High Performance Manager Brenton Phillips has tipped some quick bigmen to make their mark at Saturday’s AFL State Combine at Wayville.

As 18 of the SANFL’s most talented draft prospects are put to the test physically and mentally, Glenelg’s Toby Pink, South’s Dylan Whimpress and Norwood’s Tom Charlton are expected to display their pace in the 20m Sprint.

Speaking on SANFL Radio, McDonald’s SA Under-18 coach Phillips said the above trio all boasted exceptional leg speed for their size.

Pink shot to stardom after kicking the winning behind after the siren of the U18 Macca’s Cup Grand Final while Whimpress (Freeling) and Charlton (Eyre Peninsula) have displayed their dedication by pursuing their dreams from country SA.

Bays livewire Willie Rioli is also expected to head the list in the short distance examinations, as well as displaying great versatility in the Agility test.

Rioli – who booted four goals for the West End State team against the VFL in May – is the cousin of Hawthorn star Cyril.

AFL Academy member Steven Slimming is expected to be the front-runner in the endurance Beep Test, with the Sturt wingman possessing great aerobic capacity.

Double Blues ruckman Andre Parrella – who displayed positive development in his first League season - will again put his best foot forward after being overlooked in last year’s AFL Drafts.

Glenelg defender Liam Mackie is another player of interest after producing an encouraging second half of the season with the Tigers and Sacred Heart College.

Mackie is the cousin of Geelong premiership defender Andrew and at 186cm and 73kg, is very much in a similar mould physically to the accomplished Cat.

It was at the SA AFL State Combine in 2002 where Andrew Mackie put his athletic qualities on display before being a surprise pick at No.7 by Geelong recruiting master Stephen Wells.

While there will be no skill testing on Saturday, players will undergo the same physical tests as those who attended last weekend’s AFL Combine in Melbourne.

October 10, 2016 - DOUBLE BONUS FOR SCOTT
READ MORE +

By ZAC MILBANK | Twitter @zacmilbank

Glenelg forward Josh Scott has celebrated winning the 2016 Best-and-Fairest by signing a new contract to remain with the Tigers in 2017.

The Bays’ sole representative in The Advertiser SANFL Team of the Year, Scott edged ahead of dashing half-back Christian Howard to claim the John. H Ellers Trophy by 19 votes.

The 22-year-old enjoyed a breakout season at Brighton Road in 2016, booting a career-high 42 goals to also claim the club’s Leading Goalkicker Award.

Scott’s haul on Friday night also included the Elsie GLeghorn Players’ Player Award and Snout Louts Award, the latter voted on by the club’s passionate supporter group.

Originally from TAC Cup club Gippsland Power, Scott has now played 46 League matches and kicked 71 goals since making his debut for the Tigers in 2014.

Measuring in at 188cm and 82kg, Scott has regularly caught the eye with his penchant for snaring overhead marks while also being able to fill holes in defence when required.

Howard, who made his debut in the West End State team against the VFL in May, also enjoyed a successful evening by adding the League’s Ray Curnow Award to his Runner-Up Best-and-Fairest for displaying great dedication to the Glenelg Football Club.

The 25-year-old has also inked a new contract to continue with the Tigers next year after completing his second senior season back at the Bay after managing 20 AFL games with the Western Bulldogs.

Ruckman Warrick McGinty, another Tiger to put pen to paper for next year, was fittingly handed the Ossie Aimes Most Improved Award after almost singlehandedly carrying the club’s ruck division in 2016 while Josh Woodall won the R. E Campbell Best Team Man Award.

September 20, 2016 - 2016 ADVERTISER SANFL TEAM OF THE YEAR
READ MORE +

Congratulations to Josh Scott after his very deserving selection in the 2016 Advertiser SANFL Team of the Year after his breakout year with the Tigers. 

By ZAC MILBANK | Twitter @zacmilbank

Rookie Sturt mentor Martin Mattner has been named coach after engineering the Double Blues’ stunning revival. In just his first season as a senior coach, the 34-year-old has guided his side into this year’s SANFL IGA League Grand Final despite his club finishing in eighth place in 2015.

Instilling great confidence in his playing group by ‘’backing in’’ his charges, Mattner has also brought a tough, defensive edge which has resulted in the Double Blues becoming the best tackling outfit in the competition.

Entering this year’s campaign, major questions were being asked of Sturt’s potential to score with the retirements of key forwards Matthew Duldig and Michael Coad, together with the departure of forwards Sam Smith and Angus Bruggemann. 

But in throwing key defender Kory Beard up forward, Mattner reshaped his attacking structure in fine style as Beard went on to boot an equal team-high tally of 46 majors with team-mate Mark Evans for the minor round.

As a result, Beard and Evans find themselves selected inside 50m for the Advertiser SANFL Team of the Year, along with Ken Farmer Medallist Brett Eddy, who booted 68 majors in 2016.

Glenelg’s Josh Scott was a deserving selection after his breakout year with the Tigers while Central duo Travis Schiller and Justin Hoskin bring genuine ball-winning ability, as well as great goal sense, to the forward line.

In defence, Woodville-West Torrens has dominated at the selection table, with four Eagles named in the six positions. 

Co-Captains Luke Thompson and Patrick Giuffreda are rarely beaten and have the ability to play on talls and smalls while left-footed duo Matt Goldsworthy and Jarred Allmond have been prolific with their drive off half-back.

Sturt’s Fraser Evans has enjoyed a fine season at centre-half back, also performing strongly for the West End State team while South’s Tom Fields proved he is more than just a booming left-foot kick with a consistent year.

Norwood premiership bigman Sam Baulderstone leads the ruck, his prowess at the stoppages sure to feed a talent-laden midfield outfit.

Dual Magarey Medallist Zane Kirkwood starts in the centre-square alongside classy Eagle Jared Petrenko and Central District ball magnet Chris Jansen.

On the wings, Port’s Kane Mitchell and Eagle Nick O’Brien not only bring AFL experience but an ability to kick a goal while playing on the inside and outside of the contest.

The midfield rotation is so deep that Adelaide’s Cam Ellis-Yolmen, Sturt’s James Battersby and South’s Brede Seccull will start on the interchange despite posting big numbers in 2016.

Their inclusion ensured talented midfielders such as Port skipper Steve Summerton, star North recruit Jordie McKenzie and dual Magarey Medallist Joel Cross could consider themselves unlucky to be pipped for selection.

Magpie Luke Reynolds and Eagle Lachlan McGregor were also tough omissions from the final 21, with Reynolds booting 43 goals in a career-defining season.      

Kirkwood, who captained the West End State team this year, was an obvious choice as skipper while Thompson provides great leadership as his deputy.

September 19, 2016 - TOBY PINK'S GOAL OF THE YEAR
READ MORE +

The SANFL under 18 grand final between Glenelg and North Adelaide saw the scores dead level late in the final quarter on Sunday. Glenelg delivered the ball foward to young gun Toby Pink, who took a mark on the lead about 60 metres out. Then the siren went. The scores were level. Any score would win it. Every North Adelaide player flooded back to try and ensure Pink's kick couldn't result in a point. And - somehow - it did.

Toby's kick went straight through every single North Adelaide defender and spilled through for a behind. A chaotic, calamitous, grand final-winning behind. The best point he'll ever kick.

 

September 18, 2016 - GLENELG WIN UNDER 18 MACCAS CUP
READ MORE +

By ZAC MILBANK | Twitter @zacmilbank

With scores tied in the dramatic title-decider, Bays forward Toby Pink took a strong overhead mark at centre-half forward, the final siren sounding just as the ball landed in his hands.

This left the flame-haired bigman to line up from 60m out directly in front, with Pink needing to score in order to avoid extra time being played.

Kicking into the wind, Pink got underneath the ball and despite it landing on the point of the goal square, it somehow found a way to roll across the line for a behind.

All that was left was for the Tyson Edwards-coached Glenelg to begin celebrating its first premiership in the Macca’s Cup since 2010.

The inaccurate Bays almost cost themselves the premiership with a final tally of 6.20 (56), with their 2.4 in the final term no match for North’s four goals without a blemish.

The brave Roosters took control of the final stanza by stringing together the cleanest patch of football for the match as four-goal forward Will Hayward putting his side 14 points up 12 minutes into the fourth quarter.

But the scrappy Tigers found a way to haul themselves back in front when it mattered most with majors to Jack Strange and Harry Cock putting them back in touch.

McDonald’s SA Under-18 vice-captain Jonty Scharenberg was a fitting winner of the Alan Stewart Medal as best afield, putting in a dominant display in the centre square.

The burly midfielder – one of SA’s top prospects at this year’s AFL National Draft – finished with 34 disposals, five clearances and 12 tackles.

Scharenberg was regularly able to put his team-mates into positions of strength by freeing his arms and handballing while being tackled.

AFL Academy member Darcy Fogarty was also a strong contributor roaming around the ground for the Tigers, to finish with 20 disposals and six tackles.

Key forward Sam Davis was the Bays’ only multiple goal kicker with two as he continually presented across half-forward.

In defence, Cameron Buchanan showed tremendous poise under pressure, using his neat foot skills while Liam Mackie and Mitch Hinge also provided plenty of rebound.

For North coach Jason Blair and his Roosters, 2016 McCallum Tomkins Medallist Dakota Nixon shone to finish with 26 disposals, eight clearances and two goals.

Hayward –coming off a match-winning nine goal haul in the Preliminary Final – showed off his potential by kicking the first three majors of the game to tally four and 13 disposals.

Glenelg 6.20 (56)
North 8.7 (55)


BEST – Glenelg: Scharenberg, Fogarty, Buchanan, Davis, Mackie, Cock, Hinge.

GOALS – Glenelg: Davis 2, Milera, Martini, Strange, Cock.

Congratulations to Gordon Armstrong, the winner of our 2016 Tiger Tips competition. Gordon has been a supporter of our club since the mid 1960's and is a regular in our venue celebrating birthdays and special occasions with his family and friends. 

Gordon recieved some advice half way through the season to "go with your gut feeling" after second guessing some of his tips. Gordon will be spending his $1,000 prize money by sending his Wife Mim, 2 of their Daughters and 1 Grand Daughter on a road trip to Byron Bay while he stays home to look after the dog. Mim recently had to undergo a knee replacement so the win came at a great time to be able to treat her with a much needed holiday. 

We are thrilled that Gordon took the title of 'Tiger Tips Champion 2016' and look forward to another year of tipping in 2017.

By ZAC MILBANK | Twitter @zacmilbank

Glenelg forwards Ruory Kirkby and Clint Alleway will say goodbye to the Tiger faithful with a finale against Port Adelaide at Gliderol Stadium on Saturday.

The Round 20 clash against the arch-rival Magpies – starting at 1.40pm - will be the last SANFL IGA League appearance for the veteran spearheads.

Kirkby – who has kicked 270 goals for the Bays since making his debut in 2006 – is considered one of the club’s most reliable key forwards.

The sharp-shooting left-footer has played 166 IGA League matches for Glenelg, which included 140 in succession such was his durability.

Recruited from the Hawthorn rookie list, the Echuca product was a member of the Tigers’ 2008 Grand Final side which succumbed to Central District.

Known for his clean marking overhead, the 30-year-old has been a fan favourite at Tigerland such is his popularity and willingness to interact with Glenelg supporters.

Originally from Queensland, Alleway was recruited by North Adelaide from VFL club Box Hill at the start of the 2006 SANFL season. A former captain of the Roosters, the strong-marking key forward won the Fos Williams Medal as the West End State team’s best player against the VFL in 2008.

After kicking 209 goals in 129 SANFL IGA League games for North, Alleway spent 2013 travelling overseas before landing at Brighton Road for the 2014 season.

Booting 88 goals in 42 matches for the Tigers, Alleway became the oldest Ken Farmer Medal winner since Malcolm Blight in 1985, when he claimed the 2015 leading goal kicker award with 47 majors.

The 35-year-old has played a total of 171 SANFL IGA League matches and kicked 297 goals between 2006 and 2016.

Glenelg coach Matt Lokan paid tribute to both Kirkby and Alleway, adding that a clash with the Magpies was a fitting way to send off the popular pair.

‘’Ruory and Clint have been outstanding performers for Glenelg, particularly Ruory who has been a permanent fixture in our forward line for the best part of a decade,’’ Lokan said.

‘’We congratulate them both on such fine careers and encourage all Tigers fans to get along to Gliderol Stadium on Saturday to watch them play for the final occasion.’’

Glenelg is likely to promote emerging key forwards such as Jake Pitt, Damien Hill and Ben Edwards in the club’s final two minor round matches.

This morning our Under 18 lads and support staff had a walk in the boots of those who live on our streets - witnessing some very cold temperatures, in an attempt to raise awareness for National Homeless Week. 

Each year the Hutt Street Centre call on South Australians to show their support for people facing homelessness by joining them and experiencing what it is like on a cold, winter's morning to walk one mile to find something to eat, a hot shower and a friendly face.

By joining them and walking a mile in the boots of a person experiencing homelessness, our lads have helped make someone doing it tough realise they are not alone. Because no person who is homeless should feel like they’re walking alone.

July 30, 2016 - WILLIE RIOLI AFL DRAFT PROSPECT
READ MORE +

A four-goal star for SA in this year’s State League win against Victoria at Adelaide Oval, Rioli thrust his name further in front of AFL talent scouts last Sunday when he virtually won the round 17 match against Norwood off his own boot.

The 21-year-old, who has vacuum-like hands and is an elite kick and decision maker, kicked five second-half goals, including four of the Tigers’ five in the last term, as they stormed back from a 25-point three-quarter time deficit to win by six points.

Rioli’s fourth goal tied the scores and his fifth, which came as the final siren sounded, put them in front.

It was the exclamation mark on Rioli’s dramatic turnaround with Glenelg coach Matthew Lokan saying “it’s a testament to how far Willie has come in the past 18 months’’.

“He’s always had the ability to turn games but his fitness was an issue,’’ said Lokan.

“For him to have changed his body shape from someone who wasn’t conditioned to be able to compete and play really good SANFL footy is a real credit to him.

“His ability to hit the scoreboard, create forward pressure and cover more ground than he was once able to do has been really impressive and I’m sure AFL clubs are now looking closely at him.’’

Despite carrying the famous Rioli name, that sort of assessment wasn’t going to come when he arrived at Glenelg from NTFL club Tiwi Bombers in January last year.

He was in poor physical condition and he didn’t like the change of scenery.

“I wasn’t really interested in being here at first,’’ he said.

“But dad (Willie Rioli Sr) told me I had to go to Adelaide to further my football.

“He was always pushing me to become a better player because he knows the potential that I have.’’

The Northern Territory product’s landing in Adelaide wasn’t quite as dramatic as that of Crows legend Andrew McLeod, who was famously dropped off by his dad Jock at the Port Adelaide (Magpies) Football Club and, with tears streaming down his face, told to make a name for himself.

But it was a shock to the 175cm Rioli’s system.

“I didn’t know what to expect,’’ said Rioli, who was offered a “trial run’’ at Glenelg by then coach Nick Stevens after consultation with Rioli’s manager, former Crow John Meesen.

“I was pretty big and had already missed half of pre-season training, so it was tough.’’

Rioli’s skills and footy-smarts were obvious to the Tigers from day one but he knew he had to quickly change his diet or his SANFL stay would be short.

The fast food was out and the salad was in.

“I just gave up the junk food and trained harder,’’ said Rioli, who says he has taken minutes, not seconds, off his 3km time trial since he first arrived at the Bay.

“I wanted to make my family proud and knew I had to do something about my eating habits if I was going to succeed here.

“In Darwin I wasn’t living to a routine, it’s a relaxed lifestyle where no-one really takes much notice of the time and I was just eating when I felt like it.

“With help from the club I decided to get fit and give my football a real go and things have turned out pretty well.’’

Known to his family and close friends as “Junior’’, Rioli boarded with Stevens and fellow Glenelg players Josh Scott and Lonnie Hampton for his first month in Adelaide, sleeping on the couch, before impressing enough to earn a contract.

In Round 1 last year he created history by becoming the first Rioli to play SANFL league football, having 10 disposals, laying 10 tackles and kicking a goal in the Good Friday clash against South Adelaide.

“It was a proud day for the family,’’ he said.

Rioli played 13 games in his debut season, averaging 11 disposals and kicking a modest 12 goals.

But his elite forward pressure and tackling ability created opportunities for teammates.

This season, with improved fitness — he shed 6kg last year and 10 this year — he has become an attacking weapon, booting 22 goals in 12 games.

“Not carrying so much weight around has given me more agility and allowed me to get up the ground more,’’ Rioli said.

“I’m so much fitter and stronger and hopefully I can finish off the season well and help Glenelg push for finals.’’

As for joining cousins Cyril (Hawthorn) and Daniel Rioli (Richmond) in the AFL next year, Willie, who now lives in his own place close to Glenelg Oval, has dared to dream but is keeping a lid on expectations.

“It’s always been my dream to play in the AFL but it’s not something I’m too worried about right now,’’ he said.

“I just want to play well and let my footy do the talking.’’

He is doing just that.

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.
