Summary
A high-marking ruckman who missed only two of Glenelg's first 56 games over four seasons before he needed a serious operation and retired.

Biographical
Jack Hanley began his football career at Christian Brothers College, where he was coached by A. C. Norden , one of Victoria 's best umpires, who was in Adelaide at the time. On leaving college, Hanley played for South B grade, but after one season he was promoted to the senior eighteen. After two years with South he shifted to West, and there in his five years with that club played his best football. He was living at Glenelg when the Bays first came into existence, and he threw in his lot with the young side. He led them for three years, until a serious operation in 1924 compelled him to retire as a player.

Summary
A powerful, rugged, straight-ahead half-back, who was outstanding in Glenelg’s first win in his first game with the club in 1925. Never sacrificed an inch of ground and always proceeded towards the goal by the shortest possible route. His ability was emphasised by the fact he did not miss a State match between 1924-30.

Biographical
Jim Handby was the first Glenelg player to be awarded the Magarey Medal for the league's fairest and most brilliant footballer. His award came in 1928 in the eighth year of the Club's history as a League side.

Transferring from South in 1925, Handby gave Glenelg outstanding service until 1932. He was an ideal Magarey Medallist, combining football ability of a high order with scrupulous fairness. Strongly built, and with a fighting heart, Handby carried a heavy burden in the years he spent with Glenelg, because the side, although gaining strength, was never in the firing line when the finals came around.

Captain for a long time, he set his players a grand example by his powerful efforts to stem tides running against the Tigers.
The State selectors recognised his worth, having him on the half-back line in many stirring games , especially with Victoria.
One of the most thrilling interstate matches in which Handby played, was the tie with Victoria in 1928, his medal year. Opposed by Arthur Rayson, famous Geelong left-foot half-forward, the Glenelg man did a grand job that day in checking the brilliant Victorian. During the course of the game, both Handby and Rayson were knocked unconscious by the force with which they met in a violent collision as they were racing for the ball. It was typical of Handby's stamina that he was able to play with unimpaired vitality after receiving attention.

Although Handby never saw Glenelg reach the finals during his playing career, the Tigers were building up to their 1934 peak when he retired as a player in 1932. After his retirement, he maintained interest in the game for many years as a commentator and writer.

Summary
A 6 ft 3 inch ruckman with remarkable pace and a spectacular leap for the ball at centre bounces and boundary throw-ins. Before being recruited by the Bays he had finished equal third in the 1938 Brownlow Medal with Collingwood, with which he played 50 games as a tough centre half-back. He had to stand out of football altogether in 1939 because Collingwood refused to clear him.


Notes:
Marcus Boyall was appointed captain-coach for the 1940 season, and Glenelg won his first game in charge against North Adelaide by 23 points.
But after round 7, and six consecutive losses, he resigned as both captain and coach.

Summary
One of the toughest footballers SA has produced, his 258 club games with West and Glenelg was an SANFL record until beaten by West Torrens' Lindsay Head. Seemed able to play on no matter what the injury but he also was superbly skilled, with an exceptional high mark. He introduced a new era of team discipline to the Tigers, taking them to their second grand final in 1950 and third place in 1951.

Summary
Made such a stunning start to his league career in 1951 he played for South Australia after just three league games. In his third season he was an All-Australian and he continued to prove himself at the highest level in 20 State matches. A player with electrifying pace, he was the first Glenelg player to captain South Australia. Colin Richens called him “the best”. A player with a great leap, only serious knee injuries stopped him being remembered as one of South Australia’s greatest champions. As captain-coach he led Glenelg to the 1959 preliminary final after winning The Advertiser Cup night competition.


Notes:
Was not officially appointed coach in 1961, but took over as coach for 6 games in 1961 while Stan Wickham was recovering from illness.

Signed by Glenelg for the 1962 season, when Geoff Motley was refused a clearance by Port Adelaide to coach the Bays, ended up captain-coach, aged just 21.

Summary
An inspirational leader who, as captain-coach, transformed Glenelg from more-or-less a “social club” to one of the most powerful football clubs in the country. As a player he was a real “big game” performer, totally fearless and always dedicated to winning the hard ball and the match. His toughness and courage was epitomised by his starring with a broken jaw – stuck together with some chewing gum – against Central District in 1968.

Summary
From his first game against Sturt in 1967 it was obvious this spindly blonde had star quality. One of the most spectacular high marks in South Australian football history, he had all the skills and when it came to the crunch was at his best as with his classic mark and goal in the dying moments of the 1973 grand final.

Summary
Neil Kerley knew very quickly this tiny rover was “special” when he ran the wrong way straight into a charging pack of Port Adelaide players and grabbed a mark. He had electric pace and agility, skill, courage, persistence and was lethal around the goals. After a very successful stint with North Melbourne, he returned to the Bay to fulfil a lifelong dream and play in the Tigers’ 1986 premiership.

Summary
Exploded on to the scene with an outstanding game from the bench in the 1981 grand final and caused a sensation in a tremendous 1982 season by becoming the youngest winner of the Magarey Medal at just 18. Had explosive pace and also could run all day, had a booming left-foot kick for his size and booted countless team-lifting goals on the run and from “impossible” angles.
