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.
From 'The Tiger', 1962

Summary
Owens made up for a lack of height and weight with great anticipation and judgement and an uncanny ability to time his leap. His left-foot screw punts were long and straight. He was continually handed out rough treatment with two or three opponents competing with him for marks but he still consistently managed to kick bags of goals.

Summary
A full forward who seemed to have a sixth sense where the goals were to such an extent that a freakish snap at first would appear a fluke – but he could do it time after time. The only SANFL footballer to kick 100 goals in a season between 1941 and 1969 – and he did it twice. He could snap with either foot and was the first man to consistently kick goals from the boundary line with the checkside punt.

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.

Summary
Loping ruckman who was an expert palmer. His determination and courage was shown by the way he played on with a broken collarbone in South Australia’s win against Western Australia in Perth in 1962. His influence on Glenelg was enormous as in his reign as secretary-general manager the Tigers won three premierships.

Summary
Strong-leading and powerful-marking, he was the first full forward to win a Magarey Medal (only Port’s Scott Hodges has done it since). On his day he was unstoppable, as he was when he booted a club record 18.6 against Central District in 1975.

Summary
“Super” made his league debut as a 17 year old in 1971 against Centrals at Elizabeth while still a student at Seacombe High School. He established himself early in his career at centre-half-forward - booting six goals from that position in a best-afield performance in the 1973 grand final win. He remained the keystone in Glenelg's forward line until around 1978, when he transitioned into the club's no.1 ruckman - and remained there until is retirement after the 1988 grand final. He was club captain for 6 seasons from 1983 onwards, and maintained his high standards throughout his career with many observers rating him as best on ground in Glenelg's 1986 grand final win. During his playing career he amassed 448 league games for Glenelg as well as 19 state appearances and won many awards including 3 Glenelg best & fairest awards, 1 Fos Williams Medal and 2 All Australian selections. Since retirement he has been inducted into the Glenelg Hall of Fame, the SA Football Hall of Fame and the Australian Football Hall of Fame and has been made a Great of Glenelg.

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
Remembered for those telescopic arms that stretched out to pull in the most impossible marks. His kicking style may have been ungainly but he rarely missed, making him one of the most dangerous forwards in the game.

Summary
He had everything. The height, the physique, the marking ability that was second to none, the long accurate kick, the big-game temperament, the leadership… how many premierships would he have helped the Tigers to if he had played in the days before Victorian clubs lured our best talent away?

Summary
He had the uncanny ability to mark balls he seemed to have no right to claim. When Stephen Kernahan headed for Carlton in 1986 Glenelg’s premiership chances seemingly had gone too. But Hall slipped into centre half-forward and booted six goals in a match winning grand final display.

Summary
Remembered mostly as a resolute, reliable centre half-back, he showed his versatility and skills by booting 89 goals from full forward in 1987. A wonderful and resilient clubman.
