Glenelg – Adelaide Crows Reserves Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 01:45

The U14 Academy team played against a very strong Central District team under lights at Elizabeth. Centrals were far more physical in both their appearance and attack on the footy are comfortably won each quarter. Our boys learnt a lot from the game particularly in regards to developing greater composure with the decision making skills under pressure and skill execution.

SANFL leading goalkickers[edit]

All this time, however, the seeds of the clubs greatest ever season - indeed, one of the greatest seasons in South Australian football history - were being sown. In hindsight, it seems clear that Kerleys 'Mark I Tigers reached their peak in 1969, when a premiership was probably within reach, but was ultimately missed; then, following the retirement over the next few seasons of key, experienced players like Doug Long (who retired in 1969 after 135 games), Ken Eustice (1970 - 52 games), Harry Kernahan (1971 - 176 games), Keith Pattinson (1971 - 91 games), Terry Crabb (1971 - 65 games) - not to mention Kerley himself (1969 - 55 games) - it became necessary to re-build. In this context, Glenelgs 1970 grand final appearance can be viewed as a veritable over-achievement, while its returns of nine wins in 1971 and 11 wins in 72 were probably more truly indicative of ability.

Late in the 3rd and early in the last, we gained some ascendancy through the middle and pressed hard forward. We were able to hit the scoreboard on occasions to hit the lead but didnt capitalise on all of our opportunities. North Adelaide then responded to kick a number of goals in a hurry, which we struggled to defend.

In the previous weekends preliminary final the Roosters had vanquished the Double Blues with even greater conviction, and by an even greater victory margin (87 points), than Glenelg had managed in the second semi. This time around it most emphatically would not be a repeat of the round fifteen meeting between the two sides. Glenelgs grand final opponents, North Adelaide, had, in addition to the 1972 club championship of Australia, won both of the previous two premierships and, in Barrie Robran, boasted a player who, in the view of some, was the most audaciously gifted exponent of the game of all time. The 1973 SANFL grand final, the last to be played on Adelaide Oval, would have to be a serious contender for the title of best ever.

South took advantage of this and kick 3 goals in the first 5 minutes. South Adelaide had the breeze in the final term, as we started the quarter with 17 players while other were receiving treatment. For the remainder of the quarter South continued to press, but the boys showed great character to hang on to a close fought win by 2 points. Players were now being challenged right across the ground, with 18 now back on the field the boys worked hard in the contest and gathered their composure to impact the tempo of the game and slow it down.

Although the defection of star players to Victoria was not in itself a new occurrence, the departure of this particular quintet was arguably significant in that all five had made substantial contributions, indicative of genuine commitment and loyalty, to their SANFL clubs before leaving. After the grand final young champions Stephen Kernahan (136 games in five seasons) and Tony McGuinness (112 games, also in five seasons, plus the 1982 Magarey Medal) announced that they would be heading east to the VFL in 1986. They would be joined by other high profile South Australians in the shape of Craig Bradley (Port Adelaide), Peter Motley (Sturt) and John Platten (Central District). In some ways, Glenelgs premiership year of 1985 represented a watershed in the development of football in South Australia. In Kernahans case, the departure had been quite deliberately delayed until he had helped the Tigers win a flag, while Platten would, after leaving, make frequent reference to his long term ambition of eventually returning home to help the Bulldogs do the same.[19] In subsequent seasons, the flood of defecting South Australian players accelerated, and it is at least arguable that few if any regarded their SANFL clubs with quite the same degrees of affection and esteem as had Kernahan, Bradley, Platten, Motley and McGuinness. Certainly by the end of the 1990s the perception of the overwhelming majority of SANFL players was that they were competing in a league which had as its primary raison dtre the nurturing and development of future AFL talent.

Phillis was rewarded with the 1969 Magarey Medal, becoming in the process the first full forward in history to win the award. It was an inspired move, as Kernahan enjoyed a marvellous season, capped by selection for South Australia at the 1969 Adelaide carnival. He was not alone: Ken Eustice, whose form in 1968 had been patchy, was back to his brilliant best, winning the clubs best and fairest award; half back flanker Brian Colbey was one of half a dozen Tigers included in South Australias carnival squad and was accorded All Australian status; high flying Ray Button, who had been under a cloud with injury for several seasons, recaptured his most dynamic and spectacular form to give the side a formidable marking presence in the forward lines; and previously wayward full forward Fred Phillis finally found his shooting boots to become the first SANFL player since Colin Churchett (also of Glenelg) in 1951 to kick a century of goals. Identifying inexperience, and the susceptibility under pressure which often attends it, as the teams main weaknesses, Kerley enticed former Bay ruckman Harry Kernahan, who had spent the previous three seasons in Whyalla, back to the fold.

Analysis & Opinion

Glenelg adopted the somewhat controversial measure of appointing former Port Adelaide champion Alan Bull Reval, who had played for the Magpies in the 1934 grand final, as coach. In 1949, however, things began to improve. Under Revals aggressive and disciplined regime the Bays, who this season adopted the Richmond Tiger style of jumper, finally learned how to win, and although the finals were missed, it was a close run thing, with Glenelg managing to defeat every one of the eventual finals participants at least once during the year.

Today, of course, Glenelg is an integral part of the Adelaide metropolitan area, but for much of the nineteenth century it was an isolated outpost.[13] Nevertheless, sport of many kinds, including football, was played, and during the nineteenth century there were, at differing times, at least two football clubs bearing the name of the township. Both these clubs, however, proved to be short-lived. Indeed, some of the very first European settlers in South Australia landed at Glenelg,[12] but although a small settlement was established there, the majority of the newcomers headed inland. In other senses, that arrival took place a good deal earlier.
