The night was a chance to present our new Captain and recruits, recognise our 2019 Partners and unveil the new-look locker rooms to the 2019 playing group.

Club Captain Chris Curran was presented the famous number 5 guernsey by club legend and newly elected board Member, Peter Carey. Our 2019 recruits were also presented their playing guernseys by Senior Coach, Mark Stone.

A special presentation then followed in the changerooms, where the new-look locker area was unveiled to the playing group. The new area, with the help of the Past Players group now boasts a striking and symbolic presence, with the rich history of players before them etched onto each locker. Chairman of the Past Players and officials committee Keith Kulmann gave a resounding speech to the playing group about the names that were in the room and what playing for Glenelg meant to him.

March 20, 2019 - VALE BILL HOLST
The Glenelg Football Club is saddened by news of the passing of Club Life Member, Bill Holst. Many Glenelg people will remember Bill as the Club’s League Timekeeper, a position he proudly held for over 40 years.

Bill started out as timekeeper in Glenelg's junior grades in 1973. In League ranks between 1976 and 2018 Bill was timekeeper for 938 premiership games for his beloved Tigers - he only missed a handful of games in that time in 1998 due to heart surgery.

Glenelg has played 1893 League Premiership games in its 98-year history, which means Bill was just short of officiating at half the games the Tigers have ever played. The Bays also played 73 Escort Cup, Foundation Cup, Wills Cup and Foster's Cup night games between 1976-93, so that incredibly lifts his tally to more than 1000 games.

The Holst Family have been an integral part the GFC Family for many decades now, with Bill’s son David representing the Tigers for 190 games between 1975 and 1985.

Bill was awarded Glenelg Life Membership in 1991 for his outstanding service to the Club, which continued beyond another 25 years.

The Glenelg Football Club extends its sympathies to the Holst Family at this difficult time.

The start time of this Friday's Round 4 Clash SANFLW with West Adelaide has been moved forward. The match will now commence at 6:30pm

SANFLW Round 4 - Amended Start Time:

Glenelg vs West Adelaide @ City Mazda Stadium, 6:30pm

High flying forward Josh Scott will have a new look in 2019 as he shaves his head to help raise funds for his mate, Enzo.

Seven-year-old Enzo was born with the rapid-ageing condition Progeria, which has no cure and generally reduces life expectancy to about 14 years. Enzos' parents, Catherina and Percy, started 'Team Enzo' to help fund Enzo’s medical and therapeutic costs. Donations will also help fund Enzo’s travel costs to Boston, USA, to participate in life changing clinical trials run by the Progeria Research Foundation. 

St Mary's Memorial School and the wider community are raising money for Team Enzo towards his medical trip to Boston in September this year. On the last day of Term 1, Friday 12th April, every $1000 raised a teacher or a Glenelg football player (Josh Scott) will shave or colour their hair.


To dontate to Team Enzo and help him get to Boston, head to the fundraising page. All donations are tax deductable.
