1933 - 6th

1933 Season Summary

1933 season chart
In 1933, after Jim Handby's retirement, Jack Owens was appointed Captain, and Bruce McGregor, dual Magarey Medallist and Captain-Coach of West's 1927 premiership side, was appointed Coach.
With 3 rounds remaining Glenelg were only half a game behind 4th placed Norwood and a genuine finals contender for the first time.
Unfortunately their last 3 games were against the 2nd, 3rd & 4th ranked teams (two of them away), which meant if they were going to make it they would definitely have to earn it.
As it turned out they lost to Norwood by 41 points and Torrens by 26 points, but beat 2nd placed North at Prospect by 4 points in the last round to finish the season in 6th position on the ladder with 9 wins & 8 losses, 1.5 games outside the final four, and for the first time had a percentage above 50%. They played the top four teams on 10 occasions, for 4 wins and 6 losses.
  • Len Sallis won his 4th Glenelg best & fairest award, and was 2nd in the Magarey Medal, only 2 votes behind winner W.K. Dunn of Sturt.
  • Clem Rosewarne with 74 goals, pipped Jack Owens by 1 goal to win the club's top goalkicking honour.
  • The team achieved their highest score and their biggest winning margin in their history, when they kicked 24.21 165 to beat West by 86 points.

1948 Season Summary

1948 season chart
After winning just 9 out of 51 games in the first three seasons after Word War II, 1948 showed signs that Glenelg were becoming competitive again for the first time since 1934.
With five rounds remaining, Glenelg were still in finals contention on 6 wins, 6 losses - just two games behind 4th placed West, whom they played the following round. Unfortunately they lost this pivotal match and finished the season in 6th place with 8 wins & 9 losses - two games and percentage out of the final four.
  • Ray Curnow was Glenelg's coach for the 5th successive season (either side of the war), and Norm Betson was captain.
  • Alex Donaldson won Glenelg's best & fairest award.
  • Colin Churchett was Glenelg's top goalkicker with 88 goals, and became the 2nd Glenelg player, after Jack Owens, to be the league's leading goalkicker.

1949 - 5th

1949 Season Summary

1949 season chart
In 1949, Glenelg adopted the black guernsey with a yellow sash, as worn by Richmond, and appointed Port legend Allan 'Bull' Reval as coach - ending Ray Curnow's reign as coach which had begun in 1941.
After 10 rounds Glenelg were sitting in 6th position, but equal with Torrens and Port in 4th & 5th, on 5 wins & 5 losses.
In round 11 Glenelg narrowly lost to Torrens by 4 points - putting them a game behind - but kept in touch by defeating top side Norwood at Norwood Oval (with a goal on the final siren) in round 12.
Unfortunately this good work was undone when they suffered a 2 point loss to bottom side Sturt the following round.
This left them 1 game and percentage behind new 4th side West, who they were due to play in the next match, with 4 rounds remaining. Their finals hopes were finally ended when they lost this match to West, leaving them 2 games and percentage behind with only 3 games remaining. They finished the season in 5th position with 8 wins & 9 losses.
  • Allan Crabb was appointed Captain and won Glenelg's best & fairest award. He also tied with H.R. Phillips in the Magarey Medal. Unfortunately at the time, ties were resolved using a countback method, and Crabb was adjudged to be runner-up with Phillips the sole winner.
    Forty-Nine years later this countback system was abolished and all players who had come second on a countback were retrospectively awarded the Magarey medal.
    So in 1998, Allan Crabb became a 1949 Magarey medallist.
  • Colin Churchett was Glenelg's top goalkicker for the 3rd season in a row with 72 goals, including 13 goals in a match against South at Glenelg Oval.
  • Colin Churchett was also the league's top goalkicker for the 2nd season in a row.

1962 Season Summary

1962 season chart
After two lean seasons in 1960 & 1961, with only 6 wins from 37 games, 1962 saw Doug Long recruited from Geelong and appointed Captain-Coach at just 21 years of age, and a change in uniform to a black guernsey with a yellow yoke and colllar.
Glenelg showed substantial improvement and after round 15 with 4 matches remaining, were sitting in 4th spot on 9 wins & 6 losses - half a game in front of Torrens in 5th position, who they were due to play in the next round.
Unfortunately they lost to Torrens, putting them half a game out of the top four, but were due to play 2 of the bottom 3 sides in the last 3 rounds and were still a chance to make the finals.
As it transpired they lost all of their last 3 matches (making it four losses in a row) to finish in 5th spot with 9 wins & 10 losses - only 1.5 games out of the final four.
  • Don Hewett won the club best & fairest award.
  • Colin Richens was the club's leading goalkicker with 29 goals.

1965 Season Summary

1965 season chart

After getting off to a horror start by losing their first 3 games, Glenelg then won 10 of their next 13 games, which put them in 6th spot, but equal with Norwood and North in 4th and 5th, on 10 wins & 6 losses.
With 4 rounds to play, they were due to play both those sides in season defining games over the next two rounds - both away.
Unfortunately they lost them both, along with the two matches after that, and they finished the season in 6th position with 10 wins & 10 losses.
So just as had happened in 1962, after being in 4th or equal 4th spot with 4 rounds remaining, they lost their last 4 matches to miss the finals.

  • Len Fitzgerald continued as coach for a second season, and Harry Kernahan continued as captain for a second season.
  • Brian McGowan won the best & fairest in 1965.
  • Ray Button was the club's top goalkicker in 1965 with 61 goals.

1968 Season Summary

1968 season chart
In Neil Kerley's second year as Captain-Coach, the club recruited state captain Ken Eustice, who had just completed a four year stint as captain-coach of new club Centrals.
Due to making finals in 1967, the Bays had a tougher draw in 1968, but after losing their opening two games against the previous season's grand finalists, they then won 10 of their next 13 games, including victories over top 4 teams Port & North, and a 1 point loss to top side Sturt.
This had them sitting comfortably inside the top 4 after round 15 with 5 games remaining - 1 game behind Port in 2nd, and 2 games ahead of West in 5th.
But then the wheels fell off - a loss to 9th ranked Centrals, with Kerley getting suspended for 2 matches, followed by 3 more losses in a row, the last one to West by 6 points - the team who had taken their spot in the top 4.
This left Glenelg needing to beat Norwood by atleast 15 goals and West to lose in the last round, neither of which happened - so the Bays finished in 5th spot, with 11 wins & 9 losses - a wasted season.
  • Graham Cornes won his first club best & fairest award.
  • Fred Phillis was the club's leading goalkicker with 30 goals and 31 points (and quite a few out of bounds) - after stating his career as a centre half back.

1971 Season Summary

1971 season chart
1971 was probably Glenelg's worst season during Neil Kerley's reign as coach. They lost their first four games (albeit by less than 3 goals each time), and never recovered from that bad start.
After 7 rounds they were equal bottom with Torrens on 1 win, 6 losses, but after winning 8 of their next 11 games, they climbed into the top 4 for the first time, thanks to a club record 170 point over Woodville in round 18.
However they lost their last 3 games to the top 3 sides (North, Port & Sturt) and finished 6th, with 9 wins and 12 losses - 3 games outside the top 4.
Glenelg did win the Coca Cola cup - a knockout competition during the finals for sides ranked 5th to 8th on the ladder.
  • Peter Marker began his 7 year stint as Glenelg captain, won the club's best & fairest award, was runner-up in the Magarey medal by 1 vote to Russell Ebert, and became the club's second State Captain - after Neil Davies.
  • Fred Phillis was the club's top goalkicker for the 4th consecutive season with 102 goals, including 10 goals in a match aginst Woodville at Glenelg Oval.
  • Fred Phillis was also the league's top goalkicker for the 3rd year in a row, kicking 99 goals in the SANFL competition.
  • Peter Carey made his debut against Centrals at Elizabeth in round 12, 1971, and Harry Kernahan retired after succumbing to a knee injury.
  • Glenelg won their 4th Colts premiership.

1972 - 6th

1972 Season Summary

1972 season chart
Glenelg were sitting in 2nd spot after 7 rounds with 5 wins and 2 losses, but then two narrow losses to Centrals and Port saw them plummet down to 5th and they never got back into the top 4 for the rest of the season.
The highlight of the season was an 84 point belting of finals bound Norwood in round 11, but this was followed by the low point of a 12 point loss to bottom side South in round 13.
With five rounds remaining Glenelg were still in finals contention on 8 wins, 8 losses - 2 games outside the top 4 - but a loss to Centrals in round 17, left them 3 games out with only 4 to play.
Despite winning 3 of their last 4 games, it was too little too late and they finished the season in 6th spot with 11 wins, 10 losses. This is probably where they belonged, as they only won 1 of their 9 games against the top 4 sides but won 10 of their 12 encounters with teams outside the top 4.
  • Neil Kerley was coach for a 6th successive season, and Peter Marker was in his 2nd season as captain.
  • Peter Marker was SA State Captain in the Australian Football Carnival in Perth, and came third in The Tassie Medal.
  • Graham Cornes won his second club best & fairest award.
  • Fred Phillis was Glenelg's top goalkicker for the 5th season in a row with 75 goals - after moving to Melbourne for work, missing the first 3 rounds, and flying back each week thereafter.

1979 Season Summary

1979 season chart
After the 1978 season a disillusioned John Nicholls resigned as coach, and Sturt legend John Halbert was selected as his replacement. And after Graham Cornes joined North Melbourne in the AFL, 21 year old Paul Weston was appointed captain - Glenelg's youngest captain since the days of Colin Richens in 1960 and Doug Long in 1962.
Glenelg got off to a great start under Halbert, thrashing his former club and previous season's grand finalist Sturt by 50 points at Unley Oval, and beating reigning premiers Norwood in a thriller at Football Park by 1 point, in the first two rounds.
But that was pretty much it, as from rounds 3 to 14, Glenelg won 2, drew 1 & lost 9 matches, leaving them second bottom, only 1 win in front of cellar dwellers West.
In a very even competition, a round 15 win over then top side South, bought them to within 1.5 games of 5th spot, but losing 3 of their next 4 games left them out of finals contention. They did win their last 3 matches - including wins over finals sides Norwood and Port - which lifted them to 7th position with 9 wins, 12 losses & a draw, and provided a bit of hope for 1980.
  • Peter Carey won his 2nd club best & fairest award, while Paul Weston came 3rd in the Magarey medal for the second time.
  • Kym Hodgeman and Stephen Copping tied for the club's top goalkicking honours, with 32 goals each.
  • Graham Cornes parted ways with North Melbourne mid-season, returned to Glenelg and promptly won the Simpson medal in the state game against WA in Perth.
  • Glenelg had three players selected in the All-Australian side - Graham Cornes, Peter Carey & Kym Hodgeman - after the Australian Football carnival held in Perth in October, along with Richmond this was the equal most of any club in Australia, which is quite remarkable for a side which finished 7th in the SANFL.
  • During the 1979 season, Glenelg had a 50% win rate against the top 4 sides (Port,South,Centrals,Norwood), but only a 37.5% win rate against sides in the bottom 6.

1983 Season Summary

1983 season chart
After coach John Halbert left the club to return home to coach Sturt, Glenelg appointed Graham Campbell as coach for 1983, and Peter Carey was appointed captain - as former captain Paul Weston transferred to Essendon in the VFL.
In a tumultuous start to the season - after making the grand final the year before - Glenelg lost it's first 8 games, in their worst start to a season for 37 years - since their 0-14 start in 1946.
However the undoubted talent in the side (as evidenced by the 6 grand finals they made in the 7 seasons surrounding 1983) eventually came to the fore, winning 9 of their next 12 games, and drawing level with the fifth placed team with two rounds to go. But it was too little too late, as they lost their last two games (to top 3 sides, West & Norwood) and finished in 7th place, with 9 wins and 13 losses.
Undoubtedly, the highlight of the season was a 95 point belting of arch-nemesis Port Adelaide at Glenelg Oval in round 19 which knocked them out of the top 5.
  • Stephen Kernahan won his first best & fairest award for the club, and was also the club's leading goalkicker with 58 goals. He became only the 4th player in Glenelg's history to win both the best & fairest award and be top goalkicker in the same season - after Frank Burt in 1945, Neil Davies in 1956, Kym Hodgeman in 1978.
  • Stephen Kernahan also polled the most votes in the 1983 Magarey medal, but was ineligible due to suspension during the season.

1991 Season Summary

1991 season chart
In 1991, the Adelaide Crows entered the AFL, which had a profound impact on the SANFL, and on Glenelg in particular. Woodville & West Torrens merged to form the Woodville-West Torrens Eagles, and the SANFL's push for ground rationalisation encouraged Glenelg to play their home games at Football Park.
Glenelg were gutted by the formation of the Adelaide Crows, they supplied the Crows with their Coach (Graham Cornes), Captain (Chris McDermott), Top Goalkicker (Rod Jameson), 7 other other players (David Marshall, Robbie Thompson, Clayton Lamb, Matthew Liptak, Michael Murphy, Paul Rouvray, Allan Bartlett), as well as their fitness director (Trevor Jaques), and property steward (Rex Leahy). In addition Peter Maynard moved to the new W-W Eagles, and John Fidge missed the first half of the season seeking an AFL lifeline at Essendon.
Kym Hodgeman was appointed the new Glenelg coach, and Scott Salisbury was appointed captain.
In a remarkably resilient performance considering the circumstances, Glenelg won 6 of their first 9 games, and were 3 games clear of 6th placed Centrals after 9 rounds, but they fell away in the 2nd half of the season, only winning 4 of their last 13 games.
After round 18, with 6 matches remaining, Glenelg were in 5th place, 2 wins and percentage in front of West in 6th. But they lost 5 of their last 6 games (including 3 losses to sides below them on the ladder), and eventually finished in 6th spot, two games out of the top five, with 10 wins & 12 losses.
  • Nick Chigwidden won the club's best & fairest award.
  • Mark Russell was the club's top goalkicker with 50 goals.
  • John Fidge kicked 11.1 in a match against Centrals in round 16 - in a match where Glenelg trailed by 51 points at the 15min mark of the third quarter, until Fidge booted 8 goals in the next 46 minutes, to get Glenelg over the line by 6 points.
  • John Seebohm became the 5th Glenelg player to play 300 league games - after Graham Cornes, Peter Carey, John MacFarlane, & David Marshall.

2006 Season Summary

2006 season chart
After 6 seasons which included 3 wooden spoons and just 27 wins from 120 matches, Glenelg showed the first green shoots of recovery towards finals participation.
Glenelg had finished in the bottom three for 10 of the previous 11 seasons, and excluding 1999 - when they won 13 out of 22 and made the finals - had won just 51 out of 202 matches since 1995.
Finally, in 2006, in Mark Mickan's first year as coach and with Ben Mules in his first year of captaincy, Glenelg were in the top 5 on the ladder for most of the season, and were in 3rd spot, 2 wins in inside the top 5, with just three matches left to play.
But then a heartbreaking 4 point loss to 2nd placed North at Glenelg, followed by a loss to Centrals at Elizabeth, left Glenelg with a virtual elimination final against South in the last round. Defeat South and they would face Port in the actual elimination final the following week, lose and they were out... they lost to South by 49 points and finished 6th with a 10-10 win-loss record (after being 2nd with a 10-7 record).
However, the signs of recovery were there, 6 of their 10 wins were by 10 goals or more, including a 95 point win over grand finalist Centrals and an 81 point win over 5th placed Port, and they finished with a percentage of 53.6%.
  • Brett Backwell won the club's best & fairest award, and also won the Magarey medal for fairest & most brilliant player in the league.
  • Matthew Duldig was the club's top goalkicker with 41 goals.

2012 Season Summary

2012 season chart
In 2012, Kris Massie was appointed coach (after being installed as caretaker coach half way through the previous season), and Ty Allen was appointed captain.
Glenelg got off to a good start in 2012, winning 4 of their first 5 matches and sitting in 2nd spot on the ladder after round 6. But from then on they only won 4 of their last 15 games.
After round 14, Glenelg were in 4th place with 7 wins & 6 losses, and were 3 wins in front of 6th placed Sturt.
Remarkably, despite losing 5 of their next 6 matches, going into the last round Glenelg were level on wins and only 4 goals worth of percentage behind 5th placed Woodville-West Torrens.
In the last round the Eagles were playing 3rd placed West, and Glenelg faced 8th placed South. If the Eagles lost or Glenelg won by 4 goals more than what the Eagles did then Glenelg would make the finals. Unfortunately the Eagles upset West by 16 points and Glenelg lost to South, so the Bays finished in 6th spot with 8 wins & 12 losses - 1 win out of the finals.
  • Ty Allen won his 3rd club best & fairest award.
  • Ruory Kirkby was the club's top goalkicker for the 3rd time with 43 goals.

2017 - 7th

2017 Season Summary

2017 season chart
In 2017 Glenelg were in the top 5 for most of the season, and with 3 rounds remaining were in 5th spot with 8 wins & 7 losses, two wins and percentage in front of 6th placed South.
After losses to Sturt and bottom side North in rounds 16 & 17, Glenelg were still in 5th position with 1 round to go, 1 game in front of Centrals & South but with an inferior percentage. So Glenelg only had to beat the new bottom side West OR rely on both Centrals & South losing in the last round in order to qualify for finals for the first time since 2011.
In a heart-breaking final round, Centrals upset the top of the ladder Eagles, South defeated Adelaide by just 4 points, and Glenelg lost to West by 13 points at Richmond. So in failing to beat either of the bottom two sides in the last two rounds Glenelg finished in 7th place with an 8 -10 win loss record and missed the finals on percentage. Once again, just as had happened in 2006, Glenelg were inside the top 5 with three matches to play, but lost their last 3 matches to miss the finals.
  • Matthew Lokan was in his 3rd year as coach, and Andrew Bradley continued as captain for a 4th season.
  • Matthew Snook won the club's best & fairest award for the 2nd time.
  • Liam McBean was the club's top goalkicker with 38 goals.
  • Glenelg won their second consecutive Under 16s premiership.
