1950 Season Summary

1950 season chart
Largely due to the persistent efforts of Ray Curnow and connections made during the war-time competition (when Glenelg combined with West Adelaide), Glenelg were able to recruit Johnny Taylor as Captain-Coach for the 1950 season, along with his brothers Don and Laurie.
The Taylor brothers made an immediate impact at the club, and the Bays now had the four key positions covered with high quality players: League leading goalkicker Colin Churchett at full-forward, Laurie Taylor at centre-half-foward, Don Taylor at centre-half-back, and dual best & fairest winner Ray Hunt at full-back. They also had 1949 Magarey medallist Allan Crabb as Ruckman, and hard as nails followers in Johnny Taylor and Ted Robjent.
In the 1950 Magarey medal, ruckman Allan Crabb was runner-up with 16 votes, and Glenelg's other top vote getters were Don Taylor - 10 votes, Cliff Brooker (rover) - 8 votes, Clarrie Window (half-back) - 6 votes, and Laurie Taylor - 5 votes. Glenelg also had five players selected for the 1950 Australian National Football Carnival played in Brisbane: Don & Laurie Taylor, Allan Crabb, Colin Churchett & Clarrie Window.
During the 1950 season, Colin Churchett became the 2nd Glenelg player after Jack Owens, and just the 6th from any SANFL club, to kick 100 goals in a season. He booted 105 goals for the season, to be Glenelg's leading goalkicker for the 4th year in a row, and the league's leading goalkicker for the 3rd year in a row.

The 1950 season got off to a rollicking start with an unprecedented 74 point drubbing of Port Adelaide at Alberton Oval, and was followed up by 65 & 51 point wins over the previous season's bottom two sides, South & Sturt in the next 2 rounds. Over the course of the season the Bays were in the top two on the ladder for 12 of the 17 rounds, never falling out of the top 4.
With two minor round games remaining, Glenelg were in 4th spot, two games ahead of North in 5th, but with an inferior percentage. They were due to play North and top side Norwood in the last two rounds, and if they lost both games they would likely miss the finals, as North played South in the last round - who had not won a game.
At quarter time in the round 16 game against North, The Bays were down 0-6 to 6-6, and their finals aspirations were in jeopardy. Slowly but surely Glenelg dragged themselves back into the game, trailing by 9 points at half time and 3 points at three quarter time, until eventually running out winners by 5 points - thus securing their finals spot.
The last minor round game against top team Norwood at Norwood was another tight match, with Glenelg holding a 17 point lead with just 5 mniutes remaining. But Norwood kicked two late goals and had an oppotunity for a third, before a holding the ball decision allowed Glenelg to clear and hold on for victory. This win enabled Glenelg to finish the minor round in 2nd position - and gain the double chance - with 12 wins & 5 losses.
In the finals, they narrowly lost the Second Semi Final against Norwood by 5 points, thrashed Port in the Preliminary Final by 44 points, and then lost the Grand Final to Norwood by 47 points.

1970 Season Summary

1970 season chart
In Neil Kerley's first season as non-playing coach of Glenelg, with Ken Eustice as captain, the team could not replicate the dominance of the previous season.
Up until round 14, they consistently struggled against the top sides - losing every match they played against Sturt, Port or North - but generally winning comfortably against every other side. This left them on 9 wins & 5 losses, and sitting in 3rd position on the ladder - two wins and percentage in front of 5th placed Norwood.
But then things changed, they lost four games in a row, including three narrow defeats to Torrens, Centrals & North, but more importantly a 7 goal thumping by Norwood at Glenelg Oval, which allowed Norwood to take Glenelg's place in the top 4.
link to 1970 team photo
With two rounds remaining, Glenelg were half a game out of the top 4, and facing top side Sturt at Unley - a team they had lost their previous 5 encounters to, and on a ground they had only won at once in the last 8 years. In a season defining moment, after being 21 points up at three-quarter-time, Glenelg hung on to defeat Sturt by 5 points - keeping their season alive, but still needing other results to go their way.
In the last round, Glenelg needed to defeat Torrens, and hope Norwood lost to the new top side Port Adelaide. At three-quarter-time in that last round, Glenelg were 22 points ahead of Torrens, but Norwood were 4 points in front of Port. Despite four late goals to Torrens, the Bays held on to win by 9 points, but the real concern was at Alberton, where 20 minutes into the last quarter, Norwood led Port by 19 points. But three late goals to Port, followed by a point at the 26 minute mark, meant the game ended in a draw, and Glenelg qualified for the finals on percentage.
In probably Glenelg's most consistent and impressive finals series since their 1934 premiership, they first defeated North Adelaide in the first semi final by 16 points, after being 3 points down at three-quarter-time. Then they defeated minor premier Port Adelaide in the preliminary final by 18 points, after nearly kicking themselves out of the game with 14-20. In the Grand Final against Sturt, on a cold and wet day, Glenelg fought it out deep into the last quarter but eventually went down by 21 points.
  • Rex Voigt won the club's best & fairest award.
  • Fred Phillis was the club's top goalkicker for the 3rd year in a row with 107 goals, including 12 in a match against Woodville at Glenelg Oval. He was also the league's top goalkicker for the 2nd year in a row.

Match Highlights
  • The 1970 Grand Final was played in mud-bath conditions on a miserable cold and wet day, and Glenelg established an early lead by kicking the first three goals, but by half time Sturt had reduced Glenelg's lead to just 2 points.
  • The thrid quarter belonged to Sturt, and Glenelg went into the last change with a 3 goal deficit.
  • Two goals in two minutes at the start of the final quarter - to John Sandland and Fred Phillis - gave Glenelg a fighting chance as they only trailed by 6 points. But Malcolm Greenslade's sixth goal of the match, and two goals to 'Diamond' Jim Tilbrook, saw Sturt steady to run out 21 point winners and claim their fifth consecutive premiership.

1974 Season Summary

1974 season chart
During 1974 Glenelg definitely came back down to earth from the giddy heights of 1973.
They were clearly only the 4th best team during the minor round, winning only 1 of 9 matches against the top 3 sides (Sturt, Port & Norwood), but were obviously far superior to the rest of the teams, winning 10 out of 13 matches against the bottom 6 sides, and those three losses were all by a goal or less on the opposition's home ground - whereas, apart from a 2 point win against North (when they nearly kicked themselves out of the game with 15-24), the wins against those sides were all by 7 goals or more.
Finishing the minor round in 4th spot with an 11-11 win-loss record, meant the defence of their title had to begin via the sudden-death elimination final.
link to 1974 team photo
In the finals Glenelg kicked up a gear.
In the elimination final against Torrens, they had twice as many scoring shots, kicking 15-28 and winning by 36 points - with Fred Phillis booting 7-8.
In the first semi final against Norwood, after being only 4 points up at three-quarter-time, they finished strongly into the wind in the last quarter, to run out 23 points winners, but were again plagued by inaccuracy with 12-18.
In the preliminary final against Port Adelaide, again only 3 points up at three-quarter-time, they stormed home in the last quarter, to win by 49 points - with Peter Carey kicking 7 goals, but Peter Marker rated as best on ground.
The Grand Final against Sturt, the first at Football Park, was played on a very windy day and the weather conditions played a big part in the result of the match.
Sturt won the crucial coin toss and kicked with a howling wind in the first quarter, and took full advantage leading 6-5 to 0-1 at quarter time. The Bays turn with the wind, was hampered by rain after 10 minutes, so they trailed 4-6 to 6-6 at half time. In a magnificent third quarter into the wind, they outscored Sturt 2-1 to 0-6, and were only 5 points down at the last change with the wind at their backs in the last quarter. However, they had used all their petrol tickets, and due to injuries had used all their reserves as well, so had no-one to freshen up the team in the last quarter. So in the last term, Sturt kicked three goals into the wind against an exhausted Glenelg, and ran out winners by 15 points.
While Sturt were absolutely worthy premiers based on their performances throughout the year - 21 wins & 3 losses, but based on their grand final performance, Glenelg also would have been worthy premiers, and with a bit of luck they could have been.
  • Neil Kerley and Peter Marker continued their coach-captain partnership for the 4th year in a row.
  • Graham Cornes won his 3rd club best & fairest award, and continued to take a number of spectacular marks during the season.
  • John Sandland was the club's top goalkicker for the season with 55 goals, and Fred Phillis was 2nd on 46 goals after again spending a large chunk of the season at centre-half-back.
  • Kym Hodegmenan and Stephen Copping both made their league debuts in 1974, and Paul Weston played his first SANFL league match after debuting in the 1973 champions of Australia series.
  • Kym Hodgeman won the reserves Magarey medal in just 12 games, before he was promoted to the league side.

Match Highlights
The first Grand Final at Football Park, was played on a very windy day, and the weather conditions played a big part in the result of the match.
  • Sturt won the crucial coin toss and kicked with a howling wind in the first quarter, and at quarter time the Bays trailed 0-1 to 6-5. Glenelg's no.1 rover Greg Bennett was injured very early in the match, and had to be replaced by Kym Hodgeman before quarter time.
  • In Glenelg's turn with the wind, they banged on 3 goals in the first 10 minutes, but then it stated raining, the ball became greasy, and the scoring dried up, with only 1 more goal scored for rest of the term - so at half-time Sturt led 6-6 to 4-6.
  • In a magnificent third term into the wind, Glenelg oustcored Sturt 2-1 to 0-6, and at three-quarter-time were just 6 points down, with the wind at their backs in the last quarter. However, that third quarter effort came at a price. Backman Peter Obst was carried off before three quarter time, so Glenelg had no reserves to freshen up the team in the last quarter, and they had already spent all their petrol tickets in the third term.
  • Sturt kicked three goals in the last quarter, and the exhausted Bays had nothing left in the tank - Sturt ran out winners by 15 points.

1975 Season Summary

1975 season chart
1975 was another golden premiership opportunity lost during the club's golden era, a season that promised so much, but in the end just delivered another frustrating grand final loss.
They started the season with demolitions of two of the previous season's powerhouses, Norwood by 76 points in round 1, Port by 55 points in round 2, and followed it up by defeating reigning premiers Sturt by 22 points in round 4. After 9 rounds, they were sitting on top of the table, undefeated, 2 games clear of 2nd, with a percentage of 64.2% - with one newspaper scribe even predicting that Glenelg could go through the season undefeated.
Then, just like in 1969, they had a short slump - losing 3 out of 4 matches in the middle of the season - before finishing off the minor round with 5 thumping wins.
During the course of the season, they had four 100 point wins, including a league record 238 point win against Centals at Glenelg Oval in round 17.
link to 1975 team photo
Despite finishing the minor round with 15 wins & 3 losses and a percentage of 62.3%, Glenelg finished 2nd, 1 game behind Norwood - who had not lost since round 2 - but with a vastly superior percentage. Glenelg won the qualifying final against Sturt by 26 points (after nearly kicking themselves out of it with 17-24), and then in the second semi final inflicted Norwood's first defeat since round 2, with a 29 point win.
Glenelg went into the grand final as favourites on a sunny, but windy day. The grand final was a dour, low scoring match, with only 16 goals scored between the two teams. Glenelg had many opportunities to hit the scoreboard that day, but a litany of missed shots for goal throughout match, and a few dubious umpiring decisions deep in the last quarter when the match was up for grabs, conspired to deny Glenelg a premiership that was their's for the taking. However, the fact remains that Glenelg were only in front for 3 minutes in the entire match, and apart from 3 goals in 3 minutes just before half time, they only managed 4 goals for the rest of the game - they simply weren't good enough on the day and Norwood won the grand final by 12 points.
  • Neil Kerley and Peter Marker were once again coach and captiain.
  • Peter Carey, still only 21 years old, won his first club best & fairest award.
  • Peter Marker was 2nd in the Magarey medal by just 1 vote, Peter Carey finished 4th, and Kym Hodgeman finished 6th.
  • Fred Phillis returned to full-forward for the entire season and was the club's top goalkicker for the 6th time, kicking 128 goals - including a club record 18 goals against Centrals at Glenelg in round 17, and 11 goals against Centrals at Football Park in round 8.
  • Fred Phillis was also the league's top goalkicker for the 4th time in 1975.
  • Glenelg broke SANFL records for the biggest winning margin in a match (238 points), the highest score in a match (49-23, 317 points), and the highest scoring season (3185 points - beating the previous record of 3117 set by Glenelg in 1973).

1977 Season Summary

1977 season chart
As Neil Kerley had resigned after the 1976 preliminary final, Glenelg appointed Carlton hard-man John Nicholls as the new Glenelg coach, and Peter Marker continued on for his 7th year as club captain. Unlike the previous two seasons, the team never really looked like they were going to carry all before them, and be the team to beat for the premiership, although they were one of the contenders - and did have a couple of 100 point wins late in the season against lower ranked sides. They started slowly and gradually worked their way up the ladder, eventually finishing in 2nd position with a 14-8 win loss record, 3 1/2 games behind top side Port Adelaide - and if not for a couple of inexplicable losses to bottom side Centrals would have been closer.

In the finals, they had a comfortable 40 point win over West in the qualifying final (with peter Carey kicking 8 goals), followed by a 25 point loss to Port in the second semi final, and then a 26 point victory over West again in the preliminary final, had them advancing into their 6th grand final in just 9 years.
The grand final against Port Adelaide was a tight match all day, with Port running out 8 point winners.
  • A highlight of the season was a 3 point win over Norwood at The Parade. Norwood were 3 points up with only seconds remaining, when Graham Cornes took a hanger 15 metres out from goal, and kicked a goal after the siren to win the match. Watch youtube video
  • Captain Peter Marker suffered a serious leg injury on the eve of the finals, which all but ended his career. He attempted a comeback in 1978, but retired after only a handful of games. Wayne Phillis took over captaincy duties in the finals.
  • Kym Hodgeman won his first club best & fairest award.
  • Graham Cornes was the club's top goalkicker with 74 goals, followed closely by Stephen Copping with 72 goals.

1982 Season Summary

1982 season chart
After Glenelg had dominated the minor round, but failed in the finals, in the last two seasons, 1982 unfolded in a completely diffent manner. Glenelg were never higher than 3rd on the ladder throughout the minor round, and whilst the ladder shows they only made the finals by half a game, it was a bit more comfortable than that as they were 2 1/2 games inside the top five with just 3 rounds to play.
A highlight of the season was a four point win over Norwood at Football Park in round 19, when Paul Weston kicked 3 last quarter goals, including a booming screw punt from the half forward flank with just seconds remaining.
They finished in 4th spot with a 13-8-1 record, and faced Centrals in the elimination final - who had beaten them by 109 points at Glenelg Oval just 3 weeks earlier.
link to 1982 team photo
In a 26-goal turn-around from their previous meeting, Glenelg defeated Centrals by 50 points in the elimination final, then defeated Sturt (whom they hadn't beaten in the minor round) by 35 points in the first semi final, and then faced Port Adelaide in the qualifying final - whom they hadn't beaten during the minor round, and hadn't beaten in any final since 1974 - 6 consecutive finals losses. In a match made famous by a rampaging and out of control David Granger - who broke Stephen Barratt's leg with a kick, and was suspended for 9 matches for stiking Graham Cornes - Glenelg prevailed by a point to progress to the grand final against Norwood. But unfortunately, after 3 tough finals, and on a six day break from the toughest of them all, Glenelg had run their race, and put in yet another disappointing grand final performance - losing by 62 points.
  • Tony McGuinness won the club best & fairest award, and at 18 years of age became the yougest ever winner of the Magarey medal.
  • Michael Lunniss was the club's top goalkicker with 69 goals.
  • At the end of the season John Halbert quit to take up the coaching position at Sturt, after the retirement of Jack Oatey.

1987 Season Summary

1987 season chart
Graham Cornes and Peter Carey were once again coach and captain in 1987, and the team got off to a rocky start, losing their opening two matches to Norwood & Port, and battling to a 3-5 record and 7th position on the ladder after round 8 - including a 75 point drubbing by North at Prospect Oval.
But when they finally got their act together, and inflicted successive wins of 100 points over Norwood, 97 points over Port, 66 points over West, 82 points over Sturt & 74 points over Woodville (all top 6 sides, apart from Sturt), the competition new that the sleeping giant had awoken, and that Glenelg were going to be hard to beat for the premiership.
link to 1987 team photo
But after defeating top of the ladder North by 26 points in round 17, their form tapered off, winning just 1 of their last 5 minor round matches (including losses to the bottom two sides) to finish in 4th place with 12 wins & 10 losses.
Come finals time they emphatically found their form again, starting with a 102 point win over Woodville in the elimination final, and followed up with wins over finals bogey sides Port & Norwood in the first-semi and preliminary finals.
So Glenelg were into the grand final, to have a crack at three premierships in a row.
Alas, it wasn't to be - they got belted by North to the tune of 82 points in the grand final.
  • Chris McDermott won his 2nd club best & fairest award.
  • John Seebohm was the club's top goalkicker with 89 goals.
  • Chris McDermott won the Fos Williams medal for best player against Victoria in the state game at Football Park, and the Simpson medal for best player on either side in the state game against Western Australia at Subiaco.
  • Scott Salisbury and Chris McDermott (for the 2nd time) were named in the All Australian side.
  • Peter Carey became the first SANFL player to play 400 games, against Torrens in round 7 on May 23.

1988 - 2nd

1988 Season Summary

1988 season chart
1988 was Graham Cornes' 4th year as coach, and Peter Carey's 6th and last year as captain. During the off-season Glenelg had gained John Schneebichler, Gary Christie, Warren Ralph & Chris Melican, but they lost Tony Hall, David Kernahan & Michael Murphy to the VFL.
Glenelg got off to a good start in 1988, on top of the ladder after 10 rounds with an 8-2 record. But a 10 point loss to Port at Alberton in round 11 began a losing streak of 5 losses in 6 matches, which had Glenelg sitting in 6th spot, half a game behind North in 5th at the conclusion of round 16. As it turned out they faced North at Prospect the very next round - and a loss would have left them 1 1/2 games out of the top five with 5 games to play.
In a season defining match, Glenelg defeated North by 33 points at Prospect to move back into the top 5, which is where they stayed for the rest of the minor round - despite narrowly losing 2 of their last 3 matches due to poor kicking for goal.
link to 1988 team photo
For the second season in a row, Glenelg would have to launch their premiership campaign via the elimination final. In the elimination final Glenelg defeated Sturt by 59 points, then they defeated Centrals in the first semi final by 21 points (thanks to poor kicking for goal by the Dogs), and Norwood in the preliminary final by 5 points. In the grand final, after being up 3-3 to 0-2 at quarter time, they only kicked 5 goals for the rest of the match and Port ran out winners by 29 points.
  • Chris McDermott won his 3rd straight club best & fairest award.
  • Craig Budarick was the club's top goalkicker with 41 goals.
  • Chris McDermott was appointed SA state captain.
  • Peter Carey broke an Australian record when he played his 447th senior game against Centrals on May 14.

1990 Season Summary

1990 season chart
1990 was a year of upheaval in the SANFL, and as it turned out the last SANFL premiership that was untainted by the presence of a local AFL side which effectively relegated the SANFL to a second tier feeder competition.
For a number of years, the SANFL had been under pressure to enter a side in the AFL competition, but had resisted due to disagreement over the terms of entry and concerns over what it would do to the SANFL competition. However during the 1990 season, Port Adelaide went behind the SANFL's back and secretly launched their own solo bid to join the AFL, which forced the SANFL's hand into entering a composite side into the AFL in 1991 - thus changing the SA football landscape forever.

Graham Cornes was Glenelg's coach in 1990 for the 6th and last season (as he became Adelaide's inaugural coach in 1991), and Chris McDermott was captain for his 2nd and last season (as he became Adelaide's inaugural captain in 1991).
With Chris McDermott available for the full season, an injury free John Fidge hitting his straps, the improvement in youngsters Robbie Thompson, Rod Jameson & Matthew Liptak, and the recruitment of Clayton Lamb from West, Glenelg were a rejuvenated side in 1990 and back to their dominating best of the early to mid 80's.
Glenelg took top spot off Port in round 3 by defeating them by 26 points at Football Park, and held on to top spot all the way through to round 16, until a loss to North by 21 points in round 17, allowed Port to snatch top spot and keep it.
link to 1990 team photo
Glenelg finished the minor round in 2nd spot, with a 16-3-1 record, half a game behind Port on 17-3.
Starting their finals campaign via the qualifying final for the first time since 1986, Glenelg were down at half-time by 26 points to North, but a 9 goal third term saw them lead by 12 points at the last change, and they held on to win by 23 points. This set up a grudge match against Port in the second semi final - just 3 days after the AFL had approved the SANFL's bid to join the AFL in 1991, instead of Port's. Glenelg led by 23 points at the final change, and held on to win by 11 points - but Clayton Lamb suffered a broken ankle and would be unavailable for the grand final. This was only Glenelg's fourth 2nd semi final victory from 12 attempts, and their first win over Port in a 2nd semi final after 5 successive losses. But in the end the win counted for nothing, as Glenelg were once again defeated by Port in the grand final by 15 points.
  • David Marshall won the club's best & fairest award, and was runner-up in the Magarey medal by 1 vote to Scott Hodges.
  • John Fidge was the club's top goalkicker with 124 goals, including 10 in a match against Sturt at Adelaide Oval - and became only the 4th Glenelg player to kick 100 goals in a season after Jack Owens, Colin Churchett & Fred Phillis.
  • Chris McDermott was appointed SA state captain.

1992 Season Summary

1992 season chart
Kym Hodgeman and Scott Salisbury continued as coach and captain for a 2nd season, and after 18 rounds Glenelg were sitting in 2nd place on the ladder with 10 wins & 6 losses. Then 3 successive losses saw Glenelg slip down to 4th position, only 1 game in front of South in 6th, with 3 games to play. Fortunately Glenelg's last 3 games were against the bottom 3 sides, which they won comfortably to finish the minor round in 4th position with 13 wins & 9 losses - and only percentage away from gaining 3rd spot and the double chance.
In the elimination final, they thumped South by 51 points, then came from 4 goals down at quarter time to beat North by 6 points in the first semi final, and then belted Woodville-West Torrens by 64 points in the preliminary final - with John Fidge kicking 11 goals.

So for the 5th time in 16 seasons Glenelg faced up to Port in the grand final. Since the arrival of Neil Kerley in 1967, Glenelg had a 6-6 win-loss record in all finals against Port excluding grand finals, but over the same period of time they had a 0-4 record against Port in grand finals. Unfortunately the trend continued and Port won the grand final comfortably by 56 points.
  • Nick Chigwidden won his 2nd club best & fairest award.
  • In an injury interrupted season John Fidge still managed to be the club's top goalkicker (for the 2nd time) with 91 goals, including 3 matches where he kicked 10 goals or more - 13 goals against West at Glenelg, 11 goals against Sturt at Glenelg & 11 goals against WW Eagles in the preliminary final.
  • Mark Russell was 2nd on Glenelg's goalkicking list with 72 goals, including 10 in a match against Centrals at Adelaide Oval.
  • Andrew McKay was runner-up in the Magarey medal to Nathan Buckley.
  • Two weeks after the end of the season Kym Hodgeman was re-appointed coach for 1993, but a week later the coach & club had parted ways.
