Summary
An inspirational bellgetter who loved nothing better than throwing himself into the bottom of a pack to win the hard ball, then getting his team-mates involved with his slick handball. In his prime the best midfielder in the SANFL, Allen finished third in Magarey Medal voting three years in a row from 2008-10. At the Bay he didn’t miss out, just the 10th player to win three club champion awards.

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.

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
An ultra-determined, competitive, fearless rover and inspirational leader, Chiggy for many years after the arrival of the Crows in SA football remained the heart and soul of the Glenelg Football Club. Tony Symonds, Chigwidden’s coach in 1995-96, said he was “one of the most outstanding club men Glenelg had ever had. He has as much heart as any player I’ve played with and he doesn’t accept second best”.

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
Always willing to back his judgment, this rebounding half-back “had that incredible knack of getting the footy… he was rarely beaten”, according to Kerley. Proved his class at the highest level and in the toughest games.

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
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
So cool he appeared almost casual but he was wonderfully skilled and as a back pocket he could turn defence into attack with his rebounding style and spectacular marking. When the going was tough early in the 1985 grand final, with North Adelaide on top, he kept the Tigers in the game.

Playing at centre half-forward, he was best-on-ground in Glenelg's stunning 1934 grand final triumph against Port. A beautiful high mark and intelligent footballer.

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
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 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 skilful, speedy wingman who kept on fighting back from injuries – he broke his collarbone twice and dislocated his shoulder four times – refusing to believe he could not again wear his beloved Glenelg guernsey. Although he never won a Tigers club champion award, his consistency was borne out by the fact he was runner up in Glenelg’s best-and-fairest counts in 1996, 1998 and  2000 and third in 1993-94 and 2002.

Summary
A centreman/wingman with outstanding ability and pace who could have been just about anything but for persistent knee injuries. Doug Long described him as an ‘out-and-out champion’. His courage was legendary at the Bay. He played despite many serious injuries and was able to star despite them. In 1962 he carried a shoulder injury but still starred in South Australia’s three State games. Against Victoria at Adelaide Oval Hewett was South Australia’s best, dominating the centre against Collingwood’s Ken Turner.

Summary
As a stocky rover who kicked accurately with either foot, he booted three goals in his first game, which was Glenelg's breakthough win in 1925. His 130th and final game - on the wing - was in Glenelg's first grand final triumph, against Port in 1934. As a wingman "his swerving forward moves kept his opponents guessing".

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
Immortalised as a consistent, rebounding full back with uncanny judgment and penetrating drop kick. Bull Reval described him as “a wizard for his dimensions…he was only light”. Johnny Taylor said Hunt marshalled the defence together “like a master”. While awaiting his RAAF posting in Melbourne in 1943 he played six games for Richmond, playing at half-back in the Tigers’ memorable five-point grand final victory against Essendon.

Summary
Hard-as-nails ruckman with a pair of hands like a vice, who was one of the most spectacular high-fliers SA football has produced. Won the Magarey Medal in Glenelg’s 1934 premiership year but a knee injury prevented him training in the week of the grand final. Despite that, he still played an heroic game, his towering mark on the goal-line in the last quarter sealing the flag. In his Magarey Medal winning year in 1934, he polled votes in 14 of 17 games, and was named in Glenelg's best players in 15 out of 20 games that season.
Biographical
George 'Blue' Johnston became Glenelg's second Magarey Medallist in 1934 and played a pivotal role in helping them win their first premiership that season. Glenelg had reached the finals for the first time, but had a most inauspicious first appearance in a League major round when they were badly beaten by Port in the second semi­final. However, they went on to defeat Sturt in the preliminary final and Port in the grand final, and Johnston played a leading role in this recovery, with his brilliant ruckwork and high marking.

Starting with Glenelg in 1927, he reached the peak of his career in the 1930's, and was famous for his high, finger-tip marking. Johnston was a force in league and interstate football in the years until he retired in 1940.

Glenelg supporters will remember him for two incidents in the closing stages of the 1934 grand final. After leading by 17 points at three-quarter time, Port had gained all the momentum and were closing the gap. They were launching another counter-attack from their backline and the ball seemed certain to reach scoring range, when Johnston, with a superbly judged turn, pulled down a one-hand mark in the centre of the field to restore the initiative to his side. Then, in the dying stages, after Port had drawn level on the scoreboard, he pulled down a towering mark and goaled in the goalsquare, to restore Glenelg's lead and no doubt inspire his teammates to hang on for a famous victory.

From 1934 until the end of his career in 1940, Johnston was the leader of the South Australian rucks in many games against Victoria and Western Australia. Capable of withstanding intense opposition in the crushes, he was the aerial artist in the State ruck, which had "Bull" Reval and Bob Quinn, two famous Port Adelaide players, as his partners.

In view of the part he played in Glenelg winning their first premiership, Johnston's Magarey Medal award was greeted enthusiastically by football followers in all districts. There was no better known player at that time and the award to him of football's highest honor was a fitting recognition of his contribution to the game in this State.

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
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
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?

An outstanding knock-ruckrnan who palmed the ball accurately to his rovers all day. According to coach Johnny Taylor he played to his standard every week - week-in, week-out - you could rely on him to give it his best. Could be a matchwinner as he showed by kicking a goal on the bell to give the Bays a win against Norwood in 1949.
