Dear Members,

Well it has been another eventful year for our club.

There is no doubt the highlights of the year were beating Melbourne in round 10 and the women’s team reaching the Grand Final.

The teams had some highlights and low points but overall 2021 was certainly an improvement on 2020.

Once again our meetings  were effected by Covid and Middleton Tavern functions were largely curtailed.

It is hopeful that in 2022 things will return to normal and Adelaide oval will once again have 50,000 supporters barracking for our teams.

Congratulations go to Rory Laird for winning the Best and Fairest, ” Malcolm Blight” medal and to Ebony Marinoff the women’s best and fairest medal.

The committee has been busy throughout the season and the highlight would be Sam Jacobs attending one of our committee meetings. It was also great to see Board Member Nick Takos and his wife Dini attend one of our Middleton Tavern functions.

It is sad to see our long serving players in Daniel Talia and Tom Lynch leave  the club. They have both been wonderful players and they will be missed.

I would like to thank the members of the committee for their support over the last 2 years. I will not be standing as President for 2022 but will remain on the committee.


Andrew Benson
