1951 Season Summary

1951 season chart
Johnny Taylor's 2nd year as Captain-Coach of Glenelg (after reaching the grand final in his first year) got off to a slowish start, and by round 7 they were languishing in 5th place on the ladder with 3 wins & 4 losses. But, they came storming home in the 2nd half of the season, winning 9 of the last 11 minor round games, to finish the minor round in 3rd position with 12 wins & 6 losses. In the first semi final against Torrens, they won comfortably by 38 points, but then lost the preliminary final to North Adelaide by 25 points.

As Glenelg had lost Laurie Taylor to a coaching position in New South Wales, the team was re-arranged, with Don taylor moving to centre-half-forward to replace his brother and the rapidly improving Brian Wright moving to centre-half-back to fill the hole left by Don Taylor's move. Furure All-Australian and dual best & fairest winner Neil Davies was recruited from Broken Hill, and after just three games was picked in the state side.
So despite the loss of Laurie Taylor, Glenelg still had a very stong goal to goal line of Colin Churchett (FF), Don Taylor (CHF), Neil Davies (C), Brian Wright (CHB), Ray Hunt (FB).
  • Brian Wright won his first Glenelg best & fairest award.
  • Colin Churchett was Glenelg's top goalkicker for the 5th season in a row, was the league's top goalkicker for the 4th year in a row, and kicked 100 goals in a season for the 2nd year in a row - becoming only the 2nd player to achieve this feat, behind Ken Farmer.

1953 Season Summary

1953 season chart
For the 1953 season, Glenelg appointed 23 year old Pat Hall from Norwood as Captain-Coach.
The team got off to a fast start, winning their first four games by sizable margins, and whilst they never slipped out of the top 4 during the season, they only just qualified for finals.
With one minor round game remaining, Glenelg were in 4th place on the ladder, but were equal with North Adelaide, whom they had to play and beat in the last minor round game at Kensington Oval - a ground at which they had been succesful only once in 6 attempts.
link to 1953 team photo
After securing 4th spot with a 29 point victory over North - giving them a 9-9 win-loss record - they faced Norwood in the first semi final, whom they had not beaten in their last four attempts, and had never beaten in a final. Despite being behind all day, the Bays unleashed a withering last quarter burst and overran Norwood in the last 8 minutes to win the first semi final by 24 points. Unfortunately the following week in the preliminary final, they went down to Port Adelaide by 58 points.
  • Neil Davies won his first Glenelg best & fairest award, and was runner-up in the Magarey Medal.
  • Neil Davies became Glenelg's first All-Australian player at the 1953 Australian National Football Carnival held in Adelaide.
  • After spending 1952 mainly at centre-half-forward, Colin Churchett returned to full-foward and was Glenelg's top goalkicker for the 6th time with 74 goals.

1959 Season Summary

1959 season chart
In Neil Davies' second year as Captain-Coach, Glenelg were in 5th place with 3 wins and 5 losses after round 8, and were 2 games plus percentage out of the four. They then won 7 of their last 10 games, including the last four in a row, to sneak into 4th position in the last round - the first time they had been in the top 4 for the entire season. They finished the minor round with 10 wins and 8 losses, but to make the finals they did need other results to go their way, as if Torrens had beaten top side Port Adelaide in the last round then the Bays would have missed out.
link to 1959 team photo
The first semi final against Sturt was a close game all day, with Sturt continually sneaking ahead and Glenelg always fighting back to close the gap. Sturt had again sneaked out to an 11 point lead with just 3 minutes remaining in the last quarter, but two spectacular marks and goals from full-forward Fred Pemberton late in the game gave Glenelg a 1 point victory. In the preliminary final, Glenelg were defeated by eventual premier Port Adelaide by 59 points.
  • Fred Pemberton topped the club's goalkicking with 44 goals.
  • Colin Richens won his first club best & fairest award.
  • Glenelg won the night premiership in the pre-season competition - The Advertiser Cup
  • The club won both the Junior Colts and Senior Colts premierships - for the Junior Colts, it was their second in a row.

1964 Season Summary

1964 season chart
1964 saw the introduction into league ranks of two new teams - Central Districts and Woodville - for the first time since Glenelg was admitted in 1921.
Glenelg appointed triple Magarey medallist Len Fitzgerald as coach, and Harry Kernahan as captain.
With a new coach, new captain and two new teams to beat up on, Glenelg's fortunes showed a marked improvement from the previous season. Although getting off to a poor start, with a draw and 2 losses in the first 3 rounds, playing newbie Centrals in round 4 kick-started their season, and Glenelg won 8 of their next 9 games to entrench themselves in the top 4 after 12 rounds, and held on to fourth spot with a 12 wins, 6 losses, 2 draws record at the end of the minor round.
link to 1964 team photo
Glenelg and Sturt met in the first semi final - in both teams' first finals appearance since their epic clash in the 1959 first semi final. In another thrilling and eerily similar encounter, Sturt had opened up a 17 point lead with nine minutes remaining in the last quarter. But Glenelg had fought back to within 5 points, and with two minutes to go, McGowan kicked the ball in to Button who marked within scoring range - but the umpire awarded a contentious free against McGowan for running too far (as can be seen at the 7:30min mark in this 1964 First Semi Video) and Sturt held on to win by 5 points.
  • New recruits Colin Rice and Brian McGowan had an immediate impact in their first season at the club. Rice won the club's best & fairest award, while McGowan was the club's top goalkicker with 54 goals.
  • Future star Fred Phillis won the thirds best & fairest award.

1967 Season Summary

1967 season chart
1967 began a new era at the Glenelg Football Club with the appointment of Neil Kerley as Captain-Coach, and a new look, with the adoption of the black guernsey with a gold sash.
Kerley brought a new level of commitment and professionalism to the club, at all levels, both on and off the field. He had already coached West and South to premierships - their first premierships for 14 and 26 years respectively - and had taken South from bottom in 1963 (which is where Glenelg finished in 1966) to top in 1964 in his first year as coach.
link to 1967 photo of kerley addressing his players
Kerley had an immediate impact, beating North Melbourne in a trial match, and opening the season with 4 consecutive wins - three of them over 10 goals, including a 100 point win over Woodville in his very first match in charge (only the club's 2nd ever 100 point win).
After this initial honeymoon period against the weaker sides was over, reality set in as they started meeting better opposition and Glenelg lost their next 4 games, to be in 5th spot with 4 wins & 4 losses after 8 rounds.
However, they knuckled down, and with impressive away wins of 36 points over Norwood, and 53 points over top side Sturt, and a home win over 2nd side North, they qualified for finals by finishing the minor round in 4th spot with 12 wins & 8 losses. Unfortunately their season ended when they suffered a 46 point loss to Port in the first semi final - this was the the third time that Port had ended Glenelg's season prematurely after preliminary final defeats in 1953 & 1959.
  • Glenelg changed to its current jumper - a black guernsey with a gold sash.
  • As well as being Captain-Coach, Neil Kerley also won the club's best & fairest award.
  • Ray Button & Bob Anesbury tied for the top goalkicking honours with 45 goals each, and Ray Button kicked 11 goals in the round 1 demolition of Woodville.
  • Peter Marker, Rex Voigt, Kerry Hamilton, Wayne Phillis & Graham Cornes all made their league debuts in 1967 - setting the foundations for future success.
  • The reserves won their first ever premiership, and the thirds won their second premiership after losing just one game for the year.

1976 Season Summary

1976 season chart
1976 saw the departures of Greg Bennett, Bob Tardiff, Kerry Hamilton, Peter Anderson & Bob Treganza from the club, but despite this Glenelg still remained premiership contenders. Smarting from their unexpected grand final loss in 1975, Glenelg were on top of the ladder and undefeated after the first 5 rounds, which included comprehensive victories of 58 points against Sturt in round 1, our biggest ever win of 88 points against Port in round 2, and a 29 point win against reigning premiers Norwood in round 4 (after kicking 17-26).
Although they remained on top of the ladder until round 10, they suffered from massive fluctuations in form for the rest of the season.
link to 1976 team photo
Apart from 10 & 20 point losses to Port, every other match was either a big win, or a big loss, with no close matches. In fact against 8 of their 9 opposition clubs, thay had a turnaround of atleast 13 goals from 1 meeting against that club to the next. A good example is, against Sturt they went from 58 point winners in round 1, to 47 point losers in round 11, to 82 point winners in round 21. Glenelg's inconsistency saw them finish the minor round in 3rd position with 14 wins & 7 losses.
In the finals, they beat Sturt in the qualifying final by 23 points, lost to Port in the second semi final by 43 points, and then faced Sturt again in the preliminary final - whom they had defeated twice in the previous 3 weeks by 82 points & 23 points. Unfortunately this game did not go to plan, and after missing countless opportunities to establish a match winning lead, Sturt came back and inflicted a gut-wrenching 7 point loss.
The repercussions of this loss were severe, with Neil Kerley resigning as coach after 10 years in the job.
  • Neil Kerley continued into his 10th (and last) season as coach, and Peter Marker was captain for the 6th consectutive year - both club records.
  • Fred Phiilis was the club's top goalkicker for the 7th time with 104 goals, including 12 in a match against Sturt in round 21 at Football Park.
  • Fred Phillis was also the league's top goalkicker again - for the 5th time.
  • 19 year old Paul Weston won his first club best & fairest award, and came 3rd in the Magarey medal.
  • Brian Colbey's career was cut short at 29 due to a serious achilles tendon injury.

1978 Season Summary

1978 season chart
With John Nicholls at the helm as coach for his 2nd year, and Graham Cornes appointed captain after Peter Marker's serious leg injury towards the end of 1977, the 1978 season began in sensational fashion against South at the Bay in round 1. Only 6 points up at 3/4 time, Fred Phillis, who had returned to full-forward after spending 1977 at full-back, kicked 7 goals in the last quarter - finishing with 10 all up - and the Bays ran out winners by 53 points.
This encouraging start to the season continued all the way up until round 11, with the Bays on 10 wins & 1 loss, and in 2nd spot on the ladder, only percentage behind top side Sturt. After belting North Adelaide at Prospect in round 15 by 122 points - with Kym Hodgeman picking up 52 touches and kicking 7.3 - they were still 2nd with a 12-3 record and three games in front of Norwood in 3rd spot.
link to 1978 team photo
However, then the wheels fell off. They proceeded to lose the next 5 games in a row (3 of them against sides outside the top 5). Even after this disatrous run, because of their sensational 10-1 start to the season, and wins against West & Torrens in the last 2 rounds, they managed to cling onto 3rd spot and the double chance in the finals with a 14-8 record. But it counted for little, they were eliminated from the finals race in straight sets, losing to Norwood by 54 points in the qualifying final, and Port by 12 points in the first semi final - after being 28 points up at three-quarter-time. Also of note is that Kym Hodgeman was unavailable for the first semi finasl after getting injured at training.
  • Kym Hodgeman had a sensational season - winning his 2nd club best & fairest award and winning the Magarey medal.
  • Kym Hodgeman was also the club's leading goalkicker with 54 goals, with Fred Phillis 2nd on 53 goals, and Stephen Copping 3rd on 50 goals - Hodgeman became only the 3rd player, after Frank Burt in 1945 and Neil Davies in 1956 to win both the best & fairest and top goalkicking honours in the same season.
  • Fred Phillis became Glenelg's greatest ever goalkicker, surpassing Jack Owen's career goal tally of 827 goals for the club.

1980 Season Summary

1980 season chart
With John Halbert at the helm for his 2nd year as coach, and Paul Weston as captain for a 2nd season, Glenelg showed a massive improvement from the previous disappointing season.
During the 1980 minor round, Glenelg won 19 out of 22 matches, had a percentage of 58.9%, and finished in 2nd place, half a game behind minor premier Port Adelaide, and 6 games clear of Sturt in third place.
And yet, somehow, they were eliminated from the finals race in straight sets, with two comprehensive losses - to Sturt by 29 points, and Norwood by 37 points - and this was a side which, for the second season in a row had the equal most All-Australian representatives of any club in Australia.
link to 1980 team photo
  • Paul Weston won his 2nd club best & fairest award, at just 23 years of age, but Kym Hodgeman came 3rd in the Magarey medal.
  • 20 year old Robbie Walter was the club's leading goalkicker with 78 goals.
  • Graham Cornes won the Tassie medal in the state of origin carnival held in Adelaide.
  • Glenelg once again had three players selected in the All-Australian side - Graham Cornes, Peter Carey & Keith Kuhlmann - after the state of origin carnival held in Adelaide in October, and once again, along with Richmond this was the equal most of any club in Australia.
  • 1980 also marked the end of John H Ellers' 13 year reign as President of the Glenelg Football Club.

1984 Season Summary

1984 season chart
Graham Campbell and Peter Carey continued as Glenelg coach and captain respectively, and the team got off to a slow start, losing 2 of their first three matches. But from then on, they won 16 of their last 19 matches - losing to Port twice & Norwood once - to finish equal top with Port Adelaide on 17 wins, 5 losses. After round 19, Glenelg were in fact top on percentage, but in the last 3 rounds Port Adelaide had bigger wins than what Glenelg did, and Glenelg were relegated to 2nd on percentage.
Glenelg had a comfortable 48 point win against Centrals in the qualifying final, but in a spiteful match four players were reported, including captain Peter Carey. In a crushing blow to Glenelg's premiership aspirations, Carey was suspended for 2 matches for attempted striking.
link to 1984 player profiles
Without their captain, Glenelg subsequently lost the second semi final to Port by 39 points, and the prelimnunary final to Norwood by 18 points (kicking 11-23).
  • Stephen Kernahan won the Glenelg best & fairest award for the 2nd year in a row, and was Glenelg's top goalkicker for the second year in a row with 56 goals. In doing so, he became the first player to win the best & fairest award and be top goalkicker in the same season TWICE.
  • Stephen Kernahan won the Fos Williams medal for best player against Victoria at Football Park - kicking 10 goals in the match.
  • Stephen Copping kicked 11 goals in a match against Sturt at Unley in round 14.

1989 Season Summary

1989 season chart
Graham Cornes continued into his 5th year as coach, and Chris McDermott took over the captaincy after the retirement of Peter Carey, but as he had injured his left knee in an exhibition game for South Australia against Western Australia in Vancouver he could not play until half way through the season, and Scott Salisbury deputised as captain until his return.
The loss of Carey & McDermott, was compounded by the retirements of Alan & Wayne Stringer, the transfers of David Grenvold to Essendon, Geoff Winton & Craig Woodlands to South, and long term injuries to John Schneebichler, Craig Budarick and Gary Christie. As a result Glenelg struggled in the first half of the season, and after a 117 point flogging by Port at Alberton in round 11, were sitting in 6th spot with 4 wins & 7 losses - 1 game and percentage behind 5th placed West, who they were to play in the next round.
link to 1989 team photo
This "double point" game against West at Richmond proved to be the turning point in the season, as they strung together 5 consecutive wins to get themselves back into the top five. One cause for concern though was that Glenelg had been accustomed over the last decade to having a number of big wins each season, and so far during 1989 their biggest win was just 35 points and their percentage was just 48%.
Finally though the big wins came, by 85 points over Torrens in round 18, and 132 points over Sturt in round 22 - and expectations started to build that Glenelg might still be a legitimate premiership contender, rather than just making up the finals numbers.
For the third season in a row Glenelg had to start their finals campaign via the elimination final. In a gladiatorial elimination final against Norwood, the lead changed 10 times during the match, and 6 times during a frantic last quarter. Tony Symonds had the chance to kick a goal from the boundary line deep into time-on of the last quarter, which would have put Glenelg back in front, but the swirling winds took the ball out of bounds and Norwood hung on to win an epic contest by 5 points.
  • Kym Hodgeman won his 3rd club best & fairest award.
  • Jim West was the club's top goalkicker with 60 goals.

1993 Season Summary

1993 season chart
After the abrupt departure of Kym Hodgeman, Mark Williams was appointed coach, and Nick Chigwidden was appointed captain after the retirement of Scott Salisbury.
Glenelg were entrenched in the top 3 for most of the season, and had some impressive wins, including a 73 point drubbing of eventual premiers Woodville-West Torrens in round 2, and an 84 point belting of Port Adelaide at Alberton Oval in round 16 (who were top of the ladder at the time).
link to 1993 team photo
Unfortunately, after that magnificent win in round 16, the only wins they had for the rest of the season were against the bottom 3 sides. After finishing the minor round in 3rd place with a 12-7-1 record, losses to Port and Norwood in the finals meant that Glenelg were eliminated from the finals in straight sets - for just the third time after 1978 & 1980. Of note is that Glenelg were the only team that the eventual premiers, Woodville-West Torrens did not beat during the year.
  • Nick Chigwidden won his 3rd club best & fairest award, and was runner-up in the Magarey medal.
  • John Fidge was the club's top goalkicker for the 3rd time with 56 goals.

1994 Season Summary

1994 season chart
1994 saw both Mark Williams and Nick Chigwidden continue in their roles as coach & captain for a second season, and despite qualifying for finals it was a very disappointing season for the team. Glenelg had a five match winning streak to get them into third spot on the ladder with 6 wins, 3 losses after 10 rounds.
link to 1994 team photo
But this was followed by a horror stretch of 6 consecutive losses including two 100 point losses at Glenelg Oval in consecutive weeks - the first time this had happened in the history of the club.
Overall, Glenelg spent 40% of the season outside the top 5, and only fell into fifth spot after North lost to Norwood in the last minor round match while Glenelg looked on with the bye. Glenelg finished the minor round with 10 wins, 12 losses and a woeful percentage of 46.5%, and lost the elimination final by 44 points to Norwood.
  • Nick Chigwidden won his 4th club best & fairest award.
  • Dean Caldow was the club's top goalkicker with 37 goals.

1999 - 4th

1999 Season Summary

1999 season chart
After 4 years in the doldrums where finals participation never looked a remote possibility in the second half of each season, 1999 provided a ray of hope that the Bays might be on the way back towards being premiership contenders again. Tony McGuinnes continued into his 2nd season as coach and Nick Chigwidden was captain for a record equalling 7th season.
In the first part of the season, Glenelg showed a significant improvement from previous seasons, sitting in 2nd position with a 6-3 win-loss record after 11 rounds, but this was followed by 3 consecutive losses, which left them sitting in 7th place, just percentage out of the top 5.
However it was the last part of the season where encouraging signs emerged that the Bays might be back as legitimate contenders.
link to 1999 team photo
They won 7 of their last 8 matches, including wins over 2nd placed Norwood at Norwood Oval, 3rd placed Woodville-West Torrens at Woodville Oval, and a 50 point demolition of top side Port at Glenelg Oval.
Glenelg finished the minor round in 3rd place with a 13-7 win-loss record, and having beaten the other major premiership contenders in the run to the finals gave hope that Glenelg were a genuine premiership threat.
However, Glenelg's poor finals run since the 1992 grand final continued, losing their 5th & 6th consecutive finals matches (albeit narrowly), to Woodville-West Torrens by 12 points, and Norwood by 14 points, to again be eliminated from the finals race in straight sets.
  • Richard Kelly won the club's best & fairest award.
  • Ben McEntee was the club's top goalkicker with 28 goals, with Chad Cornes coming 2nd on 20 goals.
  • Nick Chigwidden was runner-up in the Magarey medal for the 2nd time.

2007 Season Summary

2007 season chart
In 2007 Mark Mickan and Ben Mules continued in their roles as coach and captain for a second season, but the team got off to a very slow start, sitting in last position on the ladder with 1 win & 6 losses after 9 rounds - although part of the reason for the slow start was due to the draw, where Glenelg had to play at Unley, Elizabeth, Noarlunga and Norwood in the first 7 rounds.
However for the rest of the minor round Glenelg only lost 2 more matches - to Centrals at home and Woodville-West Torrens away - to finish in 5th position with 10 wins, 8 losses & 2 draws.
link to 2007 team photo
Glenelg faced Sturt in the elimination final, and despite the fact that they were in form, and had defeated Sturt in 2 out of 3 meetings during the season, the fact remained that Glenelg had lost 6 consecutive finals dating back to the 1992 grand final.
In the elimination final, Glenelg started slowly and trailed Sturt for the entire match until well into the last quarter when they finally hit the lead. They hung on to win by 1 point, thanks to a late miss from 20m out by Sturt's Simon Feast which would have snatched Sturt the game.
In the first semi final against Woodville-West Torrens, Glenelg again got off to a slow start, trailing by 22 points at quarter time, but fought back in the second term, and should have led at half time, but for some ill-discipline gifting the Eagles a goal just before the siren to give them a 6-8 to 6-3 lead at the main break. Thanks to poor kicking for goal by Glenelg in the third term the Eagles pulled away to lead by 19 points at three-quarter-time, but Glenelg fought back in the last and with a minute to go the scores were level. Unfortunately the Eagles had a bit of luck when a soccered kick was marked by an Eagles player, who then kicked the goal, and Glenelg went down by 6 points.
  • Ben Kane won the club's best & fairest award.
  • Justin McConnell was the club's top goalkicker with 64 goals.

2010 Season Summary

2010 season chart
Like 2009, 2010 was another season that promised so much but delivered so little. Glenelg were only percentage away from winning their third straight minor premiership, but in the end had to settle for 2nd spot on the ladder with 15 wins & 5 losses - which is where they belonged, having lost all 3 encounters with top side Centrals, but only losing 2 other games against the rest of the competition.
link to 2010 team photo
Even though they had beaten both Norwood & The Eagles comfortabley within the last 4 minor round matches, Glenelg got smashed by both teams in their two finals - Norwood by 44 points, and Woodville-West Torrens by 38 points. So once again despite a stellar minor round performance they were eliminated from the finals in straight sets.
Over the course of 2009 & 2010, Glenelg's minor round record was 32 wins, 7 losses, 1 draw (81.3% win rate), but in finals their record was 0 wins, 4 losses (0% win rate).
In fact, from the 1992 grand final to the 2010 first semi final, Glenelg's finals record was 2 wins, 13 losses (compared to 41 wins, 31 losses up to the 1992 preliminary final).
  • Mark Mickan and Ben Mules were coach and captain again, for a 5th consecutive season.
  • Ty Allen won his 2nd club best & fairest award, and was 3rd in the Magarey medal.
  • Todd Grima was the club's top goalkicker with 58 goals, and also won the Ken Farmer medal for leading goalkicker in the league during the minor round.
  • Glenelg won their 2nd consecutive Under 18s premiership (and their third junior premiership in a row after also winning the Under 19s flag in 2008).

2011 - 5th

2011 Season Summary

2011 season chart
2011 was the beginning of another decline in Glenelg's fotunes, as although they qualified for the finals, they were no longer a genuine premiership contender as they had been in the previous 3 seasons.
Mark Mickan began the year as league coach (for the 6th consecutive season), but was replaced during the season by reserves coach Kris Massie, while Ben Mules continued as captain for a 6th season.
link to 2011 team photo
After 13 rounds Glenelg were in 6th position on the ladder, with 4 wins, 7 losses & 1 draw. But then a mini resurgence under the new coach saw them win 3 in a row which got them back into the top 5, and despite only winning 2 of their last 5 matches, they limped into the finals in 4th position with 9 wins, 10 losses & 1 draw.
Against South Adelaide in the elimination final they lost by 31 points - their first ever loss to South in a final, and their 6th consecutive finals loss since the 2008 preliminary final.
  • Ben Kane won his 2nd club best & fairest award.
  • Ruory Kirkby was the club's top goalkicker for the 2nd time with 39 goals.
  • Glenelg won their 6th reserves premiership.

2020 Season Summary

2020 season chart
2020 was a season like no other.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the season start was delayed until late June, the minor round was reduced to 14 rounds, Adelaide & Port Adelaide did not participate and the finals were reduced to a top 4.
The league side suffered a large turnover of players from the previous season, as 3 premiership players retired, 2 were lost to the AFL, and 3 suffered long term injuries - resulting in only 12 players from the 2019 premiership team playing in the last game of the 2020 season.
link to 2020 team photo
Whilst Glenelg made finals relatively comfortably in the end, with a 9-5 win-loss record in the minor round - 3 games clear of Norwood in 5th place - they never looked like dominating the competition like thay had the previous season.
Whilst they did achieve their first wins at Norwood and Unley Ovals for the first time since 2011 & 2012 respectively, and won at Elizabeth for just the 2nd time in a decade, they only won half of their matches at Glenelg Oval, and 4 of their 9 wins during the season were by less than a goal.
Fourth place was a fair reflection on where they belonged - having a 2-4 record against the finals sides, and a 7-1 record against the non-finals sides.
  • Mark Stone continued as coach, Max Proud became captain as Chris Curran was not expected to be available for the 2020 season.
  • Matthew Snook won his 3rd Glenelg best & fairest award - becoming the 11th player to win it on 3 or more occasions.
  • Liam McBean won the Glenelg top goalkicking honour for the 3rd time - becoming the 10th player to do this on atleast 3 occasions.
  • Liam McBean also won the Ken Farmer Medal for leading SANFL goalkicker in the minor round for the 2nd time in a row - becoming the 4th Glenelg player after Jack Owens, Colin Churchett & Fred Phillis to win multiple SANFL Leading Goalkicker or Ken Farmer Medals.
