Jack Hannath calls time on SANFL career

Tiger ruckman Jack Hannath has called time on his SANFL career after 105 League games.

Hannath spent his junior days representing the Angaston Panthers in the Barossa before making his SANFL debut in 2011 for the Bulldogs. He’d remain here until December 2012, when he was picked up by Fremantle in the pre-season AFL draft.

This would begin a nationwide football journey, as Hannath’s four years in Western Australia with Fremantle and Peel Thunder were followed by another two seasons with Central Districts, and then a year in the Northern Territory with NT Thunder.

In 2020, Hannath returned home and settled at the Bay as a replacement for retired ruckman Jesse White. Over the past three years, Hannath has played 43 games for the Tigers and featured in three League and Reserves finals series, including the 2021 SANFL Grand Final.

“I’ve genuinely loved the playing squad I’ve had the chance to be involved with over the past three years. It’s been an honour to have the chance to wear the yellow and black and to finish my SANFL career at Glenelg,” Hannath said.

While his time on-field is finished, the 31 year old will continue to have a presence in the SANFL through his player welfare role, where he works with the State’s male and female juniors to look after their well-being and career pathways outside of football.

The club thanks Jack for his valuable contribution and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours.
