CHAIRMAN’S

REPORT

F

OOTBALL IS A GREAT leveller. After the incredible ride of 2014, this year proved how hard the AFL really is. Despite entering 2015 with great optimism, we failed to live up to our members’ and supporters’ hopes, and failed to deliver on our own expectations by finishing ninth at the end of the season. But importantly, let me assure you, 2015 won’t be a wasted year. We’re not sticking our head in the sand and dismissing this year as ‘one of those years you’ve got to have,’ and moving on with blind optimism.

results, but all this was put into context on the morning of July 3 when we woke to the shocking news that our great friend and Port Adelaide life member Phil Walsh had been murdered. We were all numb and couldn’t make sense of why this had happened. Importantly though, we were all united in our sorrow and grief not just as a Port Adelaide community but as an entire state and national AFL community. In times of grief and sorrow, football clubs are great to be around for the support networks they naturally provide. Port Adelaide is certainly no exception. Phil’s legacy to football and Port Adelaide has been well documented.

We will learn from our mistakes and act accordingly. In his coach’s report, Ken Hinkley will outline what we have learned and how we will improve in 2016 from a football perspective.

We will remember him fondly as the master tactician who sat alongside Mark Williams in the coaches’ box plotting the downfall of the opposition during our premiership year in 2004.

The Magpies in the SANFL were no different. At times we played irresistible football while our output was inconsistent in other weeks. Despite qualifying for the finals with the double chance, the Magpies were disappointingly knocked out in straight sets.

We remember his return to Alberton in 2014 when he worked closely as a coach, friend and mentor to our current young crop of midfielders.

Our on-field results in 2015 in both the AFL and SANFL were unacceptable, we are all patently aware of that all within the club take full responsibility for it. We don’t apportion blame, we all own our disappointments just as we all celebrate our successes. We were already reviewing our processes from the midway point in the season. As a result we have a clear understanding of where we need to improve and I know we have a committed coaching team and playing group desperate to deliver sustained success to our community. I took great heart from the fact we won seven of our last nine games. It showed we owned the disappointment, analysed the issues, rectified them and acted on it. I thought the whole review process was a great credit to the coaches and team. Yes, from a football perspective the year was tough and there were some very disappointing

And, most importantly, we’ll remember Phil as a great bloke as well as a football genius who possessed boundless energy, enthusiasm and a character underpinned by a rare charm and unique sense of humour. Phil will forever be in our memories and his legacy will live on. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Meredith and the family during this most difficult time. While 2015 was a challenging year on a number of fronts, amid the anguish and on-field results, we achieved some truly historic milestones and success off-field that we should all be incredibly proud of. BACK IN BLACK I am delighted to confirm, for the first time since 2007, Port Adelaide posted a financial profit (after depreciation) of $211,000. This is a significant achievement in a year where we failed to make the AFL finals. It is a win for our entire community – our members, our supporters, our staff and our corporate partners

who provide us with such wonderful support. Thank you. To put it into perspective we’ve achieved a $10 million financial turnaround in three years. Just three years ago South Australia’s ability to sustain two AFL clubs was being questioned. Not anymore. A financially strong Port Adelaide means we can invest more into footy and more into our community programs. Remember our mission statement is that We Exist To Win Premierships and Make Our Community Proud. A strong financial base gives us the best chance of achieving that. Our ability to record a profit is largely due to our record club membership and significantly increased corporate sponsorship with national and international brands OAK, Four’N Twenty, UBet and RAA joining our joint major partners Renault and EnergyAustralia in their support of Port Adelaide. MEMBERSHIP AND ATTENDANCES The Port Adelaide community continued to support the club with unrivalled passion and unity, despite our indifferent on-field form. For the first time, we became the biggest AFL club in South Australia in terms of membership numbers, as officially audited by the AFL. This is an extraordinary achievement for so many reasons. Remember, it wasn’t long ago we were told by some the Port Adelaide brand couldn’t attract enough members and supporters to remain sustainable. Significantly, this membership achievement fully justifies the ‘One Club’ unification that we pushed so hard for, and reinforces that a united, engaged Port Adelaide community can be incredibly powerful. That’s you. Yep, you. Your passion, your loyalty, your commitment. As a club we are deeply grateful to you for sticking with us.

YEARBOOK 2015 7


Since unifying the Magpies and the Power at the end of 2010, club official membership has risen by a staggering 86% from 29,029 to 54,057. The result also vindicates our club’s move from Football Park to the Adelaide Oval. Our membership tally has grown by over 14,000 - or 36% - since returning to the Adelaide Oval. Excitingly, our growth is largely coming through younger members, with a large percentage of children and supporters aged between 18 and 35 years joining the club. This is critical as it is a very promising reinforcement of our future. Make no mistake, this achievement is a significant moment in our club’s history. Likewise, our attendances at Adelaide Oval were outstanding again in 2015 with our home games averaging 43,802 spectators. Your support through the turnstiles is an important element of our new stadium financial deal, so achieving such wonderful crowds has really helped the financial growth of our club. Beyond any financial benefits, the noise, the colour and atmosphere you bring to the Adelaide Oval week in, week out, is extraordinary and I know our players feed off this energy and passion. ADELAIDE OVAL Your incredible support in 2015 once again underpinned our Adelaide Oval game day experience. One my favourite sights pre-game is to watch the sea of black, white and teal march from Rundle Mall across the River Torrens footbridge into the Southern Plaza at Adelaide Oval. To see young and old alike marching as one with their flags and singing the club song is a truly great spectacle and adds to the appeal of a Port Adelaide game day. Once outside the ground, our community brilliantly supported a couple of our new game day initiatives for 2015. In Memorial Drive, the club established a new ‘Game Day Village’, which was set up as a meeting point for Port Adelaide supporters to enjoy a drink with a Four’N Twenty pie. The patronage was outstanding and the feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive. Our community enjoyed meeting their mates and like-minded people before a game for a preview and also after the game to debrief. For families, we established the ‘Power Playground’ outside the eastern gate which included our Power Pirateers Zone for the little ones and the Kids’ Zone for older children. The Power Pirateers is our junior membership package for children aged 2-6, designed to engage them with Port Adelaide and our values without making football the central focus.


Instead, Jack and Daisy – the two friendly Power Pirateers – are the heroes of the story and teach children important values around sportsmanship, team work, being humble and never, ever giving up.

POWER COMMUNITY LIMITED Power Community Limited, the community arm of our club, continues to deliver industryleading programs to the people of South Australia and beyond.

The Power Pirateers Zone includes Jack and Daisy, along with player appearances, and the feedback from families has been very positive.

As I always say, before anything else, Port Adelaide is a community club.

The key pillars of our pre-game experience inside the stadium continued to grow in 2015. The expectation and the noise generated through our team entry, where Rudimental’s ‘Not Giving In’ sets the tone for the remainder of the day or night was better again this year. But the 60-second lead up to the first bounce is still my favourite sight and arguably the singularly best moment in Australian sport. To see 50,000 Port Adelaide supporters stand as one, holding scarves aloft, singing the INXS anthem ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ is spine-tingling to say the least. To see our community so publicly united fills me with enormous pride and admiration. It’s what footy is all about: together, sharing, rejoicing in our club and in our great game. Greg Denham, senior football writer at The Australian, was a guest of the club at our Anzac Day game against Hawthorn. Afterwards he said he was, “on a high for three days” after coming to the game, and described his experience as one of the best he has ever had at a sporting event anywhere in the world. TV AUDIENCES From a national television perspective, we again enjoyed great growth with our average audience per game of 582,351 - up 22% on 2014. Port Adelaide featured in four games with an average national audience of over a million viewers and eight games with over 800,000. Our attractive brand of football appeals to the AFL’s free-to-air broadcaster Channel Seven and we have a number of blockbuster games around the country in 2016 to continue that national television growth and further broaden our appeal outside South Australia. In the SANFL, the Magpies again featured in the most-watched minor round games of 2015.

We were established in 1870 as a social sporting club for young men of Adelaide’s west and, although we have significantly expanded over the past 145 years, our community values remain the same. Quite simply, as a club, it’s part of our DNA. Across 2015, our community programs have again done us proud, with our Aboriginal Programs leading the way. We have a number of Aboriginal Programs, but the centrepiece remains the Aboriginal Power Cup. This is a program built around an early intervention strategy that uses football as a tool to engage young Aboriginal secondary school students in their education and provide pathways to workforce participation. The students enrol in a SACE unit to participate in the Aboriginal Power Cup, and 90% of students are completing this unit every year. The program has clearly demonstrated increased school attendance and Year 12 completion rates, and is now developing pathways for students who complete Year 12 to move into further education, training and employment. Only students who successfully completed their classwork were invited to take part in the nine-a-side football carnival held at Alberton during the year. The two best performed boys and girls sides – on a combined football and academic score competed for the honour of becoming the 2015 Aboriginal Power Cup champions in a curtain raiser to a Power game at the Adelaide Oval. This year marked our eighth Aboriginal Power Cup and it has now grown from 133 students from six schools in 2008 to nearly 400 students from 32 schools in 2015. I extend big thanks to the Attorney-General’s Department and Santos for their outstanding support of the Aboriginal Power Cup.

In June this year, all seven of our club’s Aboriginal players – Chad Wingard, Paddy Ryder, Jarman Impey, Brendon Ah Chee, Karl Amon, Jake Neade and Nathan Krakouer – travelled to Ceduna for the WillPOWER football carnival, which featured 200 students from six schools in the Maralinga and Far West Coast regions. Another Aboriginal program working principally to the theme of ‘education first, football second,’ is our AFL Aboriginal Academy - the first of its kind in the AFL. As part of this program, Academy students are selected not only on football ability, but their willingness to commit to their education and SACE certificate – students will not be eligible to take part in the Academy if they don’t meet certain educational requirements and participation levels. Each Wednesday of the school term, thirty Year 11 and 12 students head to Alberton for a halfday of schooling with qualified teachers and then spend the afternoon undertaking football training using our club’s elite training facilities. Throughout the year the Academy played exhibition games against other Aboriginal academies around the country and, for the second year in a row, travelled to Alice Springs to play in the curtain-raiser to our AFL Indigenous Round game. As special as those experiences were, I’m sure the students will all agree they pale in comparison to what they’ve recently experienced – a cultural exchange trip to China. The team returned in early December after their eye-opening nine-day trip to Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Beijing. Just think about the impact of this experience for these Aboriginal students: some had only recently left their remote communities and only a handful had ever left the borders of South Australia. Suddenly they’re touring the most populated country in the world, visiting Chinese schools, educating their students on Aboriginal culture and learning about Chinese culture at the same time. Beyond the cultural exchange sessions, the Aboriginal Academy played several exhibition football games, were hosted by the Australian Embassy in Beijing and visited landmarks such as Ocean Park Zoo in Hong Kong and the Great Wall.

The four highest-rating games in the SANFL all featured Port Adelaide, and four out of our six televised minor round games averaged a television audience of over 40,000.

At the other end of the learning curve, we have a program called WillPOWER, which has been developed for younger students in Years 6-9; that is, students who are too young for the Aboriginal Power Cup but are encouraged to set goals in relation to their health and education.

These young men grew up overnight and the experiences they shared on this trip will stay with them forever.

Combine these television figures with our crowds at the Adelaide Oval and Alberton and never before have we had an audience so engaged in our football club.

WillPOWER is based on the same philosophy as our Aboriginal Power Cup and has been delivered as far as the Maralinga and APY Lands and the Barkly Region in Central Australia.

Importantly, they all completed their education requirements and thoroughly deserved the opportunity to represent our club, country and their families abroad.

YEARBOOK 2015 9


We thank the SA Aboriginal Sports Training Academy and EnergyAustralia for their support of our AFL Aboriginal Academy program as well as the University of South Australia for backing the trip to China. CHARITY PARTNERS A cornerstone of our community-first philosophy revolves around our charity partners and 2015 was a year where we achieved great results together. Port Adelaide proudly partnered Foodbank again in 2015, building on a relationship that started in 2012. Together, Port Adelaide and Foodbank continued to shine a light on hunger in South Australia and achieved outstanding results over the last year. This includes sourcing and distributing over four million meals, increasing Foodbank’s client list to over 500 welfare groups in South Australia, expanding Foodbank’s geographic footprint into Port Lincoln and the Eyre Peninsula and providing food for breakfast programs servicing over 270 schools. And who could forget in April when the Port Adelaide community rallied and helped supply over one tonne of Vegemite to assist with a shortage in Foodbank’s school breakfast program? In 2015, Port Adelaide welcomed a new community charity partner, the Childhood Cancer Association. For many years, our captain Travis Boak has been visiting the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in his own time every fortnight to support children diagnosed with cancer and their families. The Childhood Cancer Association is currently supporting 400 families and children living with cancer and bereavement with no government funding. Our club has been inspired to lend its support to the Childhood Cancer Association and through the generosity of the Port Adelaide community, we can help provide ongoing and practical hands-on support for children and their families living with cancer. THANKS As you can see it has still been a historic year for our club, despite little on-field success. We have returned to profitability, achieved record membership, enjoyed massive home game attendances, rapidly increased national television audiences, implemented a wonderful game-day experience and established industryleading community programs. First, I reiterate my thanks to you, our loyal and passionate members, for underpinning the Port Adelaide community. Without you, we are without a foundation.

Second, a huge thanks to all our corporate partners for their financial support and loyalty. I reserve special praise for our joint major partners - Renault and EnergyAustralia – for their ongoing support and commitment to Port Adelaide and our community. Both Renault and EnergyAustralia share our core values and vision and we look forward to continuing these partnerships well into the future. Third, I thank the entire playing group who persisted hard despite the challenges 2015 threw at them. The group was again brilliantly led by Travis Boak and I know they are looking forward to playing tough, physical, ‘never, ever give up’ Port Adelaide football in 2016. Similarly, I thank Ken Hinkley and his coaching group for their tireless efforts, particularly after they were all rocked in their own way by the tragic passing of their former coaching colleague Phil Walsh. I also thank my fellow directors along with the entire staff and volunteers who work their backsides off to make Port Adelaide a better club. It has been a very big year which you can all be incredibly proud of. I reserve special acknowledgement for our chief executive Keith Thomas who worked around the clock to ensure the club successfully delivered on a number of key strategic items in 2015. Finally, I extend an enormous thanks to all partners, spouses and families of our players, coaches, staff and volunteers. We ask a lot of your partners and families and I sincerely thank you all for your understanding and the support you provide your partner and our club. CONCLUSION This year has taught us a lot. We learned the AFL is an unrelenting, unforgiving competition that will consume you if you’re off just a fraction. We learned we simply weren’t good enough in 2015 and finishing just outside the eight was a true reflection of our inconsistent year. We learned the result will take care of itself if we play committed, tough, physical Port Adelaide football. We learned we have a lot of work in front of us to challenge for the finals. Indeed, we learned a lot from 2015. Most importantly I know our coaching group, led by Ken, and our playing group, led by Travis, will respond. They will learn from these mistakes and demand improvement throughout every single session of pre-season. They will respond to the disappointments of 2015 and live our mantra of never, ever giving up despite the setbacks that will invariably come.

As a club, we will continue to do everything we can to make you proud to be a Port Adelaide member. We know it’ll be a bumpy ride at times. There’ll be times when we share each other’s pain and frustration, while other times we’ll bask together in the glory and pride of victory. But we’ll always try to have as much fun along the way as possible and enjoy the exciting ride of season 2016. After all, footy is meant to be fun. Thanks again for your continued support and I can’t wait to see you at the footy next year.


FROM THE CEO

KEITH THOMAS H

ISTORY NOW RECORDS the 2015 season was a disappointment for the Port Adelaide Football Club. High pre-season expectations, for both the Power and the Magpies, proved unattainable.

Indeed, it was further reinforcement that winning games of footy at the elite level is never easy, and success cannot be assumed. Just as importantly, it reminded us there is much to be learned in defeat. Our goal since season’s end has been to examine every aspect of our club’s performance - on and off-field - in order to reset our focus on 2016 with renewed confidence and vigour. I believe we are making progress. FOOTBALL We have strengthened the AFL playing list with the addition of Charlie Dixon and Jimmy Toumpas. The senior list of players continues to mature and gain experience. We look forward to the return of Jared Polec and Alipate Carlile from long-term injury, and to extending the contracts of Chad Wingard and Ollie Wines prior to the start of the 2016 season. Experience has been added to the AFL matchday coaching box to further support Ken, with Garry Hocking returning and Nathan Bassett being added to the coaching team. Chad Cornes brings passion and his trademark warrior spirit to the Magpies coaching ranks. Add Tommy Logan into the mix to support Chad and Mark Clayton, and you soon get the picture as to how committed the club is to ensuring the Magpies league and academy players fully understand our focus for the coming season. We will develop indigenous and multicultural football academies for children aged between 11 and 15 years in 2016. These will be additional to the highly successful Aboriginal AFL Academy, which will continue next year. Any players who attend our indigenous and multicultural academies, and go on to be drafted, will be given priority access to join Port Adelaide if selected. This provides great incentive to the club to invest in the development of these young

players and is seen as a positive initiative by the AFL. FINANCIAL POSITION Returning Port Adelaide to a profit in 2015 was a major achievement. Our strategy since 2012 has been to invest substantially towards strengthening our football program and on-field performances. At the same time we have been focussed on re-engaging with our members, attracting a broader stable of corporate partners and maximising the Adelaide Oval experience. As a result we have seen an improvement to the underlying business of $10.7m since 2013, which we expect to grow further in 2016. The investment growth in our football program will slow in 2016, as much of the heavy lifting has been done over the past four years. We are now operating just under the AFL-imposed player salary cap and non-player football expenses ‘soft cap,’ which I believe is appropriate for our club at this time. I would like to congratulate our senior executive and their respective teams for returning the club to profitability for the first time since 2007. It is an important and noteworthy achievement which we expect to become the norm for Port Adelaide going forward. MEMBER ENGAGEMENT A major focus for Port Adelaide in 2016 is to continue building on the relationship between our loyal members and their club. We are very proud of how united the Port Adelaide family is, and this is demonstrated in our No. 1 ranking in the AFL (member benchmark survey, December 2014) in seven categories, including: fan passion/fanaticism, overall member satisfaction, connection to club, personal involvement, connection to players, value for money and digital engagement. The iconic moments of ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ and ‘Not Giving In’ plus the March to the Mall, and support of the Game Day Village are all great examples of how we do it here at Port Adelaide. We are aiming to surpass the 60,000-plus membership record set in 2015, but such a result can never be taken for granted. We are well aware our ability to provide quality member service last year was compromised and we failed to deliver as effectively as we need to.

YEARBOOK 2015 11


We are also aware the prices in certain member categories have lifted considerably over the past couple of years. That we still represent great value and our prices generally remain below AFL average is no defence if the quality of your entertainment offering or the service you receive obtaining it is not up to scratch. This is where our membership team led by Matthew Richardson is focussed. We want your relationship with Port Adelaide to feel special. That is our goal. CORPORATE Similarly, the satisfaction of our corporate partners is integral to our future success. Corporate revenue has increased by 140% since 2012. In 2015 we welcomed OAK, Four’N Twenty, RAA and UBET to the club to join major partners Renault and EnergyAustralia. All will be continuing their association with Port Adelaide again next year. Our commitment to these outstanding brands is to continue to support their efforts, and stay focussed on helping our supporters understand their support of these companies is invaluable to both them and the club. We need to remain creative and innovative in the way we integrate each company into the fabric of Port Adelaide, because we know when we do, our people will support them. That’s when the magic happens. Just think about Renault’s Virtual Reality experience, EnergyAustralia’s support of our Aboriginal AFL Academy and together with the University of South Australia, helping us get them on a trip to China as a reward for passing Year 12! There are many more such stories, with many more to come! CHINA Many people ask me why the club has a fascination with China. How is our now two-year investment helping us win games of footy? I notice the frequency of that question increases dramatically after each loss, such is the cutthroat environment we operate in! Firstly, let me explain our purpose. Our primary interest in China is not about growing the game there or recruiting small pressure forwards.

government contacts and networking opportunities all through a connection to Australia’s most popular game. Its native game. We have been steadily building relationships both here in Adelaide and in China, and hope that over time we will form partnerships with Chinese companies which are at once culturally rewarding and financially beneficial. We believe we are slowly but surely positioning ourselves for future growth out of this new opportunity. In November, our Aboriginal AFL Academy team conducted a cultural exchange tour throughout China, and we conducted fruitful discussions with potential partners in Beijing and Shanghai. The full board of directors will visit Hong Kong again in 2016, as a statement of intent that we are serious about building this relationship. We will again conduct business lunches and grand final events in Hong Kong and potentially Shanghai, while continuing to broadcast games in Mandarin for online distribution through the Chinese community here and in China. 2016 will be the club’s third year in China. We are looking forward to some exciting developments. COMMUNITY Our community agenda continues to grow. Aboriginal education continues to be a major priority, with a growing commitment to assisting children in remote areas such as the APY Lands, Maralinga Lands and the Barkly region in the Northern Territory. With the support of our outstanding past and present indigenous players, our programs are receiving widespread acclaim for their effectiveness and we see this activity as the foundation of our community engagement strategy going forward. In addition, programs such as Empowering Youth and the Community Youth Program continue to distribute important messages to thousands of young school students each year. In 2016, we will add Respectful Relationships to our menu of important topics to discuss with these students. This program is specifically designed to engage young people in the highly sensitive subject of domestic violence, an issue of ever increasing concern in our society.

We believe the game of AFL in general, and specifically Port Adelaide, provides an excellent vehicle for Chinese companies wishing to form business relationships in this country.

If you think for a moment about the ground that we cover in the community space, including our End Hunger campaign with Foodbank, our partnership with the Childhood Cancer Association, Aboriginal health and education, resilience training for defence force kids, Anzac Day, Empowering Youth, WillPOWER, and now Respectful Relationships, I’m sure you’ll share our belief that we are making a difference.

Accessed properly, our club is well-positioned to provide high profile media assets,

HIGH PERFORMANCE EDUCATION Earlier this year we conducted our first in-

We wish to do business with China, and we know China wishes to do business in Australia.

12 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB

house training program for students of high performance. In partnership with the University of South Australia, we attracted 12 students (six of whom were from overseas) to immerse themselves in our football program for nine days, and to observe and learn from Darren Burgess and his team. It was the first of three such courses that we intend to run annually. The pilot was profitable and highly appreciated by the students who attended. We believe high performance education has the potential to grow as a revenue stream for the club, and at the same time further enhance our reputation as a leader in the field of elite sport science. Our partnership with the University of South Australia continues to strengthen and we appreciate their support and entrepreneurial spirit. They are fun to work with! SUMMARY Like every member of the Port Adelaide community, talking about anything else other than footy when the team is struggling, seems like nothing more than a distraction! However, we need to maintain perspective about where we are and where we are heading. We have further strengthened the football program, and we are looking forward to getting stuck into it again next year. Port Adelaide is again profitable, and well on its way to being financially independent again. Our members and partners continue to passionately support the team and direction of the club. We have leadership stability and are developing a plan for the future designed to ensure we achieve long-term sustained success. I believe we are pretty well placed going into 2016. Now let’s get on with it!

KICKING GOALS AT HOME AND AWAY POWER COMMUNITY LTD REPORT ANDREW HUNTER Established in 2011, Power Community Ltd continues to set the standard of community development and engagement in the AFL industry working across a range of program areas.

I

T WAS A YEAR OF GREAT progress and change within Power Community Limited, as it continued to deliver and build on its highly-regarded programs throughout South Australia, interstate and internationally. Port Adelaide sadly bid farewell to Simon Forrest, who was replaced by Mary Patetsos as our board chair. Simon worked closely with management to transform and grow Power Community Limited, leaving an indelible mark on our entire community operation. We thank him for his contributions, and wish him the best for the future. Our programs have also expanded their reach, with the development of some exciting, new programs while improving existing ones to ensure engagement and accessibility are at the forefront of each. We also refocussed our organisation by streamlining programs into three main areas: Youth, Aboriginal and International. YOUTH The Community Youth Program continues to positively influence the lives of young people across South Australia. This year, the team engaged over 100,000 young Australians, delivering messages about the importance of active lifestyles, healthy eating, the dangers of smoking and decision-making. The program continues to assist firstto-fourth year players in their personal development. A highlight from 2015 was the Community Youth Program’s annual community camp, which was held in the Barossa Valley. Players spent two days visiting schools, community centres and aged care homes throughout Tanunda, Nuriootpa, Gawler and Kapunda. The program was incredibly well-received, with a record of over 10,000 children taking part.

Once again the Optimistic Kids program was delivered to children of Australian Defence Force families. This program continued to engage and help children dealing with dislocation or disruption as a result of parental employment. This is the final year of our relationship with the Optimistic Kids organisation, and we thank Psychologist Simon Andrews for his enduring contribution. Power Community Limited is committed to continue working with children from ADF families under a new program in 2016. The Empowering Youth program continues to make a difference in the lives of South Australian teenagers, by encouraging young people to make healthy lifestyle choices, through lessons in health education delivered both in the classroom and on the field. Students are inspired by Power players to be physically active and socially engaged within the community, including local sporting clubs. Excitingly, this year the Empowering Youth Program was the recipient of a $50,000 Medibank Fund grant to continue our great work in our community. Our successful Girl Power program was again delivered to young women across the state, promoting positive body image and selfesteem, healthy lifestyles, goal setting and leadership to girls aged 14-16, with the help of female club ambassadors. In 2016, Girl Power will become a stream of an expanded Empowering Youth program. ABORIGINAL In 2015 the club’s leading Aboriginal program, WillPOWER, was delivered in the Barkley region of the Northern Territory for the very first time, with the assistance of Port Adelaide’s Aboriginal AFL players. The program is designed to encourage students to tap into their ‘WillPOWER’ both mentally and physically, assisting them to make smart choices in life through guided discussion.


The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet funds this program, which is also delivered to the far west coast of South Australia and the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands, through the Indigenous Advancement Strategy. The 2015 Aboriginal Power Cup carnival was another resounding success, with almost 400 students from 32 school descending on Alberton Oval to participate in a football carnival, work expo, disco and cultural program. The carnival, a favourite among students, is the culmination of an early intervention strategy to engage Aboriginal secondary school students in their education, and provide pathways to workforce participation. This is the eighth year of the Aboriginal Power Cup. Only students who successfully completed their classwork were invited to take park in the carnival, with participants competing in nine-a-side games. The finalists for both the boys and girls competitions were determined by a combination of on-field performance in the round-robin tournament at Alberton, as well as overall academic participation and performance. The top-two boys and girls teams played the curtain raisers to our Round 10 game against the Western Bulldogs at the Adelaide Oval, before presenting the crowd an electrifying cultural dance. This year the Aboriginal Power Cup won the United Nations Educational Scientific Cultural Organisation (SA) award for its contribution to sport, culture and education. Only four organisations are granted this award each year; an incredible honour for the club.

The SAASTA Aboriginal AFL Academy, which fosters both the on-field and academic success of talented young footballers from across the state, was another highlight for Power Community Limited in 2015. As a team, they achieved great on-field success. Academy member Wayne Milera was selected in November’s national draft, while every Year 12 participant was well-placed to pass their final year studies. The Academy also travelled by bus to Alice Springs in June, coinciding with the Power’s AFL Indigenous Round match against Melbourne, stopping in remote communities in the APY Lands to engage with locals and cultural experiences. As a reward for these dedicated young men, the club organised and funded a communitybased trip China, to give the students an eyeopening experience and continue fostering the club’s international scope abroad. The Academy team played matches against the Hong Kong Dragons and Team China, participated in cultural engagement sessions at Chinese schools and visited cultural landmarks such as the Great Wall of China. We thank EnergyAustralia, SAASTA and the University of South Australia for their support of the Aboriginal AFL Academy this year. CHINA Power Community Limited expanded its focus to a new cultural space, by engaging with the local and international Chinese community. The club developed strong relationships with South China AFL and Team China, helping nurture the development of AFL internationally while also sponsoring 11 local Chinese players to take part in the AFL Asian Championships in Bangkok this year.

In July, Power Community Limited hosted two members of Team China - Zhang Hao and Chen Shao - in Adelaide. Chen and Zhang trained with our Magpies Academy players, the SAASTA Aboriginal AFL Academy and were present at Port Adelaide matches against the Western Bulldogs and Greater Western Sydney in the AFL, as well as against Glenelg in the SANFL. We also recruited a Mandarin AFL commentator to provide Mandarin commentary for every Power home game in 2015. These match highlights were made available on portadelaidefc.com.au and further circulated through the club’s Chinese social media channels, WeChat and Weibo. With the fantastic response from the Chinese community, the club is aiming to build on a strong first year working in this international market again in 2016. CONGRATULATIONS Power Community Limited’s Manager of Aboriginal Programs, Paul Vandenbergh, was awarded the City of Port Adelaide and Enfield’s Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Person of the Year in 2015. The club would like to congratulate Paul on this well-deserved honour, particularly after a strong year leading the expansion of our Aboriginal programs throughout Central Australia. 2016 I’ll finish by thanking every one of our program partners for their support once again in 2015. While Port Adelaide is committed to having a positive impact in the community, it is the support of each of our program partners that enables it to happen. 2016 will be another year of opportunity for our program streams, and we look forward to expanding our reach in South Australia and beyond once again.

OBITUARIES

The Port Adelaide Football Club mourns the passing of these long-term and significant contributors to its on and off-field operations, successes, history and culture. We thank them and their families for their sustained dedications and loyalty and extend our sincere condolences.

PHILLIP WALSH AFL Assistant Coach 1999-2008, Midfield Manager 2014 The tragic passing of former Port Adelaide senior assistant and life member Phillip Walsh was mourned throughout the Australian Football community following his murder in August. Mr Walsh spent over a decade developing players for Port Adelaide in the AFL and most recently re-joined the club for one season as Ken Hinkley’s midfield manager. He was appointed senior coach of the Adelaide Crows for the 2015 season. TREVOR ‘BUBBLES’ OBST Player 1956-1972 His pace and ability to use the football effectively were the traits that defined the career of 1967 Magarey Medallist Trevor Obst. ‘Bubbles’, as he was affectionately known, played in four premierships and was a staple utility of the club’s sixties line-up. Part of the famous Obst dynasty, the maternal grandfather of Brad Ebert will be fondly remembered for his tearaway style as one of the club’s great players. ALFRED EDWARD ‘TED’ WHELAN Player 1948-1961 Ted Whelan was a distinguished tall man of Port Adelaide over a significant career, which reaped seven premierships including the club’s Australian record six-in-a-row from 1954 to 1959. Whelan was a big game player who was held in high esteem for his reliability around the ground. An inaugural inductee of the Port Adelaide and South Australian Football halls of fame, Whelan was also the club’s 1956 best and fairest and a member of Port Adelaide’s greatest ever team.

DONALD LAWRENCE THOMPSON Player 1955-1962 From Lameroo, Don Thompson played in five premierships in his first five years as a player between 1955 and 1959. A capable winger for the club, he was named the club’s best first year player in his first season and went on to play 121 games and five state games. LOUIS JOSEPH MANGAN Player 1945 Lou Mangan was a former South Melbourne footballer during World War II, but while stationed at Mount Gambier would continue playing football, eventually for Port Adelaide, where he ran out in 10 games during the 1945 season following the cessation of hostilities. Mangan became a cost accountant with Carlton United Breweries in 1952 and went on to become CUB’s managing director within 20 years. He was 93. DON MCSWEENY Administrator, Eyre Peninsula Zone Don McSweeny’s relationship with Port Adelaide was established in the 1960s through his involvement with zone teams in the club’s traditional country zone on the Eyre Peninsula. McSweeny’s extensive record of service spans roles as a player, coach and administrator throughout the west coast and as a member of several SANFL commissions. He was made a life member of Port Adelaide in 1993 and is a member of the South Australian Football Hall of Fame. BETTY GREER Wife of former player Allen Greer

STOP SEASON REVIEW

KEN HINKLEY

22 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB


KEN HINKLEY LOOKS BACK ON AN INCONSISTENT YEAR FOR THE POWER AS HE PREPARES HIS MEN FOR A 2016 OF REDEMPTION...

I

’VE HAD A SIMPLE MANTRA since arriving at Alberton - to tell it how it is.

So let’s be honest this year. We were, in two simple words, very disappointing. Like you, we don’t want to be in this position again, but I don’t agree with those who say it’s a wasted year. As I ask the players after every game, as we’ve asked ourselves at the end of the season: what did we learn? We learned if you’re not immersed in every moment, in every contest, in every game and you move away from the structures we’ve built for our team, you will pay a price. That price for us, this year, was finishing ninth, and missing out on playing finals. As part of building for 2016, I demanded every player watch the 2015 finals. It would be easy to avoid watching it, to switch off, and reflect on it personally, away from the hype that comes from the biggest month in football. But we need to see what we’re missing out on – we’re missing out on running on the grass during the most exciting time in footy. Questioning what we took out of 2015 is important. So too is questioning whether we dealt with expectation. Frankly, we didn’t handle the expectations on our football club – especially internally - as well as we should have. We expect to challenge every year and to do that we must be able to stay in the

moment, be consistent in games and across seasons. Every football program acknowledges the competition steps up each and every year. No club can afford to rest and to lose focus on achieving consistent competitiveness in this game. The only way we can keep challenging each and every year is to meet our own standards every day, to take advantage of each moment to improve – not getting ahead of ourselves – and making sure we achieve our goals together. WALSHY In so many ways, our football club was challenged more than anything by the tragic passing of Phil Walsh. I only worked with Walshy for 12 months, but in that short time I learned plenty from his unique, intelligent football mind. Beyond that, I learned plenty about life from him as a person. His departure from Port Adelaide at the end of the 2014 season was both a disappointment and an immense source of pride for me personally. Disappointing, because we lost a quality person around our club, but I was both proud and happy – we all were – for Phil, because, for the first time, he had earned a position to coach a football team in his own right. It didn’t matter that he was coaching at the Adelaide Crows, because the opportunity is one that is rare, special and ultimately something that any genuine football person would be proud to see achieved, particularly by such a longstanding servant of the game. For our players, and our club, Walshy’s passing hit hard. Our past and present players mourned deeply.

The loss of a man who had given 11 seasons of service to Port Adelaide, was a life member and a premiership assistant coach, was felt throughout the club. I simply want to thank everyone in our club family for the support shown to each other during this time. Our players and coaches, for their support to each other; our staff, our volunteers, for getting around each of us who needed care and kind thoughts. To our supporters, the tributes you gave at Alberton and the Adelaide Oval in the days following, the show of unity you made when we played against Collingwood and the Crows - these were simply touching moments, and something I know will be appreciated and treasured by the Meredith and the Walsh family. LOOKING FORWARD We’ve undergone thorough reviews of our football program. We do this every year, irrespective of the result, and we look towards the 2016 season with fresh eyes and a really clear focus on what we need to do to get what we want. We’ll train harder than ever and challenge ourselves more than we ever have before. Part of our review has seen us change the coaching structure at the club for 2016. New personnel have been brought to the club, and they will help challenge our coaches and our playing group with perspectives from outside our walls. I welcome Nathan Bassett into our program as our new assistant coach in charge of defence. Nathan has a strong reputation in SA for his playing career at the Adelaide Crows and his premiership

YEARBOOK 2015 23


success as the senior coach of the Norwood Football Club. Chad Cornes has also returned to Alberton as the new senior coach of our SANFL league team. A Cornes coaching the Magpies, I don’t think many would have imagined that day would ever come. Chad’s been a part of this club for most of its time in the AFL, and the welcome he’s had from our supporters has been remarkable. He comes in with experience helping to set up Greater Western Sydney as a playingassistant and assistant coach. He will be a strong coach for the Magpies, and an important part of our panel. Matthew Nicks will move to coach our offence after having charge of our defence, while Garry Hocking will rejoin our AFL group after two years setting up our new SANFL football structure as coach of the Magpies. Garry will be our midfield assistant coach, working alongside our midfield manager Michael Voss. Beyond changes to our coaching panel, we’ve also added new playing talent via the draft and trade periods. Jimmy Toumpas comes to our club after three years at Melbourne, and Charlie Dixon will join our forward group after spending seven years with Gold Coast. Both will be looking to put their heads down and go to work over the summer to earn a spot in the team for next year. Through the draft, we welcome Riley Bonner, who has been a quality defender for West Adelaide and Aidyn Johnson, who joins us from the Bendigo Pioneers.

24 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB

We have elevated Sam Gray onto our senior list after a really strong finish to his second season with the club, and have retained Kane Mitchell as a rookie. New players Will Snelling, Cam Hewett and Dan Houston will also join Kane and Nathan Krakouer on our rookie list in 2016. Our head of high performance Darren Burgess has added to his team with Mladen Jovanovic joining us as a strength coach and data scientist. Mladen previously worked at the highly-regarded Aspire Academy in Qatar. Also joining us is PhD student Harry Routledge - from the UK - as a sports nutritionist, along with Head Physio Tim McGrath who joins us from Canberra. We believe we’ve boosted our football department on and off-field, but none of our personnel changes matter if we don’t do the work required to make us better. Any advancement for our club will only come from a complete buy-in from the group to strive to improve. I’m confident we have that, but as I’ve said many times, this is a brutal competition, it’s tighter than ever before and we have to make every moment a winner. We’ve now completed our three-year fitness program under Darren Burgess, so we’ve decided not to return to Dubai. We believe we’ve got our players to the fitness base we require. Now it’s about maintaining and improving on that. It’s easy to make big, early gains in an elite fitness program, but once you reach a certain level, your improvements become smaller as you get closer to your peak.

The key is to recognise those little achievements, and keep pushing towards that summit. This is what we plan to do. THANKS While 2015 was the not the year we wanted, it was not for lack of effort from everyone at the football club and I’d like to thank the Port Adelaide community for their support this year, in particular, the 60,000 members who created a membership record this year More specifically I’d like to thank the players, coaches and fitness staff who have left at the end of the season. Firstly, I wish to acknowledge both Josh Carr and Tyson Edwards who are outstanding men who have given four years of dedicated services as assistant coaches for Port Adelaide. I thank them for the support they have given me in the coaches’ box and wish them well in their new roles as North Adelaide’s senior coach and Glenelg’s under-18 coach respectively. To our retired players Kane Cornes and Tom Logan – thank you for your long and unwavering commitment to this football club, and for the support you have both given me over the last three seasons. Kane and Tom are stalwarts of this club, and loved by our supporters. It is no surprise that they will remain involved in football. Tom will continue to serve Port Adelaide as an assistant coach to Mark Clayton in our Academy and act as runner for Chad Cornes in our league team. Kane will have an assistant coaching position at Glenelg. I also take the opportunity to thank Andrew Moore, Jarrad Redden, Mason Shaw, Mitch Harvey, Sam Russell, Johann


Wagner and Daniel Flynn, for their contributions as players. All of these players gave everything they could during their time as players at this football club. As past players of Port Adelaide, they will remain part of our community and as members of a unique group of men to have represented this proud club. I also wish head physio Tim O’Leary and nutritionist Andrew Rondonelli the very best as they depart the club to pursue opportunities to work in international sports performance – Tim with the Milwaukee Bucks in the NBA, and Andrew with our club ambassador, pro tennis player Thanasi Kokkinakis. Getting a team out on the field each and every week, and ensuring the smooth operations of a football department is not a one-person job. It requires the support and dedication of many. In that spirit, I wish to particularly acknowledge our general manager of football Chris Davies for his commitment, professionalism and diligence in overseeing the administration of the football department in his first year with the club, as well as my personal assistant Di Pounsett for her continued and unrelenting work ensuring our operations run like clockwork. Keith Thomas and David Koch continue to provide the leadership and deliver the bold vision for this club away from the football field, and I particularly thank them, and the club’s administrative staff and board of directors for their continued support of the football program. As an extension of this, I also thank our club partners, especially Renault and EnergyAustralia, for the financial and

corporate backing they deliver. It has been a difficult year, but we will continue working hard to deliver on the investment you have made in Port Adelaide and our football program again in 2016. Of all the people in our football department, the first to thank are our selfless volunteers – the men and women who are the heartbeat of Port Adelaide. Our trainers and support staff who help get our players out on the training track and ready for a game of football, the ladies who prepare our daily meals in the kitchen and to the unique group of volunteers that are ‘Dad’s Army’ who maintain our home at Alberton Oval, I simply say thank you. Thank you for your love for this club, which you show every day. To our recruiting team led by Geoff Parker and our list manager Jason Cripps, and Darren Burgess and his high performance team – thank you for your work in 2015. These men and the highly professional teams they have built around them are respectively essential to preparing our club’s football future through recruitment, drafting and list management, and ensuring the athletes we are fortunate to have today are cared for at elite standards. My thanks also to my team of assistant coaches and their families for their service and support to Port Adelaide this year. Every coach needs a support network and I am fortunate to have a group of colleagues and friends who care for and challenge me every working day. They too have a support network outside of this club, and I thank their partners and families for their care and understanding.

everything Port Adelaide stands for on each and every match weekend. Whether they wear our AFL or SANFL jumper, they understand what Port Adelaide means in the football world and beyond. Thank you for your commitment to this club and the people in it, and the journey we continue. 2016 They say the future is uncertain. I think there are some definite and undeniable certainties, though. It is certain that the Australian Football League is a brutal competition. It is certain that success can only be achieved with hard work, commitment to our cause and selflessness. We took a step backwards in 2015. Our job is to make sure 2016 corrects that. As I write this, we have already started our pre-season, and will train hard until a brief break over Christmas. When we return, it will be the new year, and the new season will not be far away. I will leave you with this: We will take every opportunity to improve, and we will look to repay the faith of our 60,000 members and even bigger supporter base next year. Success is what we stand for, and what we strive for.

Lastly to the players - the men who take the responsibility of representing

A hotly contested affair where the margin was never greater than 14 points to either side.

Brendon Ah Chee made an instant impact in his AFL debut, coolly finding Aaron Young with a handball to set up the matchwinning goal deep in the fourth quarter of a shootout at Docklands. Jay Schulz impressed with four goals while Matthew Broadbent was best on ground.

Port Adelaide set up a 51-point half-time lead over the reigning premiers on the back of seven unanswered goals in the first 17 minutes to stun the Hawks. The second half was a very different story as the Hawks piled on the pressure to close within a one-digit margin, but the Power managed to hang on for a classic Anzac Day victory.

Crucial late goals to Jay Schulz and Justin Westhoff against the Crows gave Port Adelaide the final quarter edge after the Power had its 26-point lead in the second term cut to within a goal in the third quarter. Composure in defence ensured Port got the job done despite the Crows’ dominance inside 50.

The biggest Mother’s Day crowd for an AFL game since 1998 saw Port Adelaide beaten by Eagle Luke Shuey’s final goal with just seconds on the clock. The Power’s lack of run and skill errors conspired against it throughout the evening, but particularly in the second half when the Power surrendered a 17-point half time lead in the third term.

Port Adelaide was humiliated by Brisbane in a wet match at the Gabba. Booting 8.17 (65) to Brisbane’s 15.12 (102), the Power had few players fly its flag against the cellar-dweller Lions, with the insipid capitulation consigning the Power to a 3-4 record for the season.

Kane Cornes’s retirement game against the in-form Richmond didn’t go the way Port Adelaide had hoped. The Tigers were out of the cage early and the Power struggled to find the goals. A third term challenge cut the margin back to 13 points, but Richmond proved too good around the ground and took its opportunities in attack.

28 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB

After three poor performances, the Power took home a brilliant 61-point team victory over the Dees in the heart of Australia. While an initial slow start sounded fears of yet another loss, Port upped its defensive workrate to keep Melbourne to just two goals after the major break.

A gutsy effort in the first three quarters saw Port Adelaide set itself up for a goalfest in the final term, with five consecutive majors pushing their lead to 38 points at the final siren. It was an important win for the Power to square their ledger to 5:5 after the opening 10 rounds.

The halfway point of the season was marked by a disappointing 23-point loss to the Cats. A late surge in the third quarter saw Geelong claim a 16-point lead, which the Power simply couldn’t trim down in the final term. Lacking momentum in their linkup, missed targets and dropped marks paid the ultimate price.

In one of the biggest upsets of the season, Port Adelaide’s confidence was shattered after an inconsistent, scrappy performance at the MCG saw bottom-placed Carlton claim the win by four points. The Blues dominated in the third, leaving the Power stunned and desperately trying to reel in a 23-point defecit. Robbie Gray was left concussed after a pin tackle from Bryce Gibbs.

Chad Wingard booted three goals while Robbie Gray and Ollie Wines were strong through the middle of the ground, but the Power fell just short in a heated game against Sydney at the SCG. The Thursday night battle had it all as the Swans broke from a quarter time deadlock to kick four goals to two and the Power worked hard to reel it back in.

Just days after the death of club life member and former assistant coach Phil Walsh, the Power hosted Collingwood on a rainy night at Adelaide Oval. After starting strongly, Port and the Pies wrestled for ascendency in a classic wet-weather battle with the Power clinging to a three point lead in the final seconds of the game.

Adelaide controlled proceedings in a two-club tribute to Phil Walsh, but the Power left its run late. Four final quarter goals brought Port within three points in the final moments of the game. Nathan Krakouer had a chance to kick inside 50 in the final moments, but pulled a hamstring to mis-kick and end the Power’s slim hopes.

A memorable shootout at Docklands saw the Power trail Essendon early. Struggling to match the Bombers on the scoreboard, the Power was nevertheless able to hold onto their Victorian rivals. It took some brilliance from Paddy Ryder to break the game apart with his four goals in the second half bagging Port an exciting win.

30 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB

Port Adelaide brushed St Kilda aside with an emphatic display at the Adelaide Oval. Five multiple goal scorers including a four-goal haul from Chad Wingard saw Port lead comfortably at quarter time and expand its advantage over the next three. Robbie Gray was masterful in the centre with 37 touches and 12 clearances.

After beating St Kilda by 63 points the week before, the Power was roundly beaten by a rampant Western Bulldogs. The 127-point turnaround in Port’s fortunes came on the back of arguably its worst performance for the year; certainly one deserving of its biggest loss. Few players raised their hand to contribute on the day.

Off the back of a landslide loss to the Dogs, the Power fronted up with plenty of fire in their bellies to crush the finals aspirations of a strong GWS outfit. Proving a fierce on-field affair, the clash saw both sides ‘box-on’ in several melees infront of a 33,000 strong crowd. Brendon Ah Chee scored three crucial majors to seal the victory.

Bringing the exciting, tough brand of footy they’re known for, the Power consigned the Hawks to their biggest loss for 2015 with a big-hearted effort. Wingard starred with a four-goal performance, despite nursing a sore neck from an infamous bump into the goal post which eventually earned Hawks skipper Luke Hodge a two-week sanction.

The Power slogged out a 37-point win over a Suns side missing a number of big names. The fiery contest was broken open in the third quarter as the Power kicked four goals to one to set-up a 30-point lead – almost unassailable in the conditions. Sam Gray continued his late-season emergence with 37 disposals.

An undermanned Fremantle, which had rested 11 first-choice players, stunned the Power with a four-goal-to-one opening term. But the hosts bounced back kicking 8.1 to nil in the second quarter and were never challenged from that point. The Power had winners across the ground with Sam Gray, Hartlett, Ebert and Westhoff all among the best.

GARRY HOCKING REFLECTS ON HIS TWO YEARS AT THE HELM OF PORT ADELAIDE’S SANFL TEAM AS COACH OF THE MAGPIES...

P

ORT ADELAIDE PEOPLE would rightly feel disappointed after our 2015 season. But while the Magpies’ finals ended on a sour note, we must remember that no year is ever wasted.

The lessons we learned from our inconsistent and sometimes tough season will make us all the better in the years to come. As I leave charge of the Magpies to new SANFL senior coach Chad Cornes, I know there is a sense of unfinished business within the playing group. THE YEAR THAT WAS The players had a demanding pre-season, which saw the AFL-listed players travel to Dubai and the contracted ones undertake a harder training regime in Adelaide because, being their second year in our system, we knew they could handle a bit more. We kicked off 2015 in Round 2 - after having a bye in the first round - and travelled to take on South Adelaide on a Friday night. Again under Steve Summerton’s on-field leadership, we were ruthless, playing a tough Port Adelaide brand of football. The hard pre-season came together pretty nicely and we had a good win - we kicked 16 goals and won by 66 points. We had another good win the following week against North Adelaide in our first match at Alberton for the year. Then came the disappointing match during the Anzac Round against Norwood. Norwood has always been a really tough opponent for us and it was a pretty wet night. We weren’t competitive enough in the wet and it’s an area that we need to improve significantly next year.

Until about mid-year we were going okay, with six wins in-a-row including against Sturt, the Crows, and close victories over Glenelg and Central District.

in the finals, and met a Central District outfit that had upset defending premiers Norwood the week before and were playing pretty confident and competitive footy.

During that time, we had a fairly consistent group and there were not many forced changes.

Our first half was very disappointing, but I had full confidence the boys would switch the momentum with strong footy for 15 minutes.

We were however, a very young group coming off a hard pre-season and while the boys did really well for the first nine rounds, it became a test of their character to sustain it. Our on-field group also changed more frequently as the year wore on, with inconsistency at AFL level giving some of our stronger performing players the chance to test their skills at the elite level. This meant our younger and inexperienced players needed to step up to cover the gaps. While we battled to sustain what other teams could at times - as they had older, bigger, stronger bodies than we did - our players persevered and will be better for the experience. The games we lost were humbling, and we know there are still things to work on. The SANFL is a strong competition and a team needs to be on its toes each and every week.

I was proud of how hard we came out and fought in the second half and, if a few things went our way in the dying seconds, I have no doubt we would have won. Going down by five points in that semi final was a hard pill to swallow, I’m sure it is a feeling shared by all of our supporters. While I won’t be coaching the Magpies in 2016, I know our finals performance burns through the club – every player, coach, volunteer, all of our support staff. It will be the motivation to make amends next year. COMMENDATIONS Despite our disappointment on-field, there are some positives that we can take out of this season.

Despite our mid-year slump, we finished the minor round in second place and played in a second consecutive finals series.

We are always focussed on winning games of footy, but we need to ensure our players are always improving their game as well, so to see some excellent gains in this area is always a positive.

THE FINALS We went out to win every game this year and though we weren’t able to play the way we had hoped each week, we did win one more game this year than we did in 2014.

I was really proud of guys like Brendon Ah Chee, Sam Gray, Aaron Young, Kane Mitchell and Andrew Moore, who played at least five really strong games at SANFL level and were rewarded with AFL selection.

But bowing out of the finals in straight sets was incredibly disappointing.

Our league contracted boys worked very hard as well, and some earned an elevation from academy to league level on the back of strong pre-season form and good performances in 2014. Throughout the year, these players continued to work hard in games with Mark Clayton, on the track, and were further rewarded with league selection.

We lost to West Adelaide after leading in the first half, only to be outplayed by the eventual premier after half time. As a result of finishing second on the ladder, we were given a second chance to stay

YEARBOOK 2014 35


I’d also like to touch on Tom Logan, who retired at the end of this season. What an amazing career he’s had. I know his body would’ve been pretty sore, but he put his hand up to play every week. We owe a lot to him for not only what he did on the field, but the leadership he showed off it. He was a great mentor to Steven Summerton and the younger guys in our team. Most of all, he helped us win games. Tommy embodies everything about our club: brave, bold, courageous, he never, ever gives up, and he’s selfless. These qualities are so important for all of our players, and Tommy’s example is one that all our young boys should want to emulate. He is a copybook Port man and we all thank him for the example he has set over the last decade in Port colours. Steve Summerton’s leadership again this year was outstanding and he enjoyed another very consistent year. The skipper really took the captaincy to another level and he grew into the role after his first year leading the club in 2014. He developed his work inside the contest which is something I challenged him to do prior to the season starting. His leadership rose this year, speaking at half time and really adding more voice and direction on the field on game day. Off-field, he demands excellence in everything from recovery to training, and pushes the values of our club. Summo is an asset to Port Adelaide and a cult figure in our playing group and our faithful supporters love him for what he has done for the club. I congratulate him for his second excellent season as the captain of our football club, and for winning his third A.R. McLean Medal as the best Magpie at Port Adelaide – a tremendous achievement and one that he should be incredibly proud of. THANKS I’ve absolutely loved coaching the Magpies for the past two seasons.

36 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB

As an outsider into Port Adelaide five years ago, I came knowing the significance of the club’s heritage, of the black-and-white guernsey and that Magpie emblem. After two years of coaching the Magpies, I will move back into the AFL coaching panel with a better understanding of our club’s history and why the old Port Adelaide traditions are so important to our supporters and the people who dedicate their lives to making us successful. There have been many rewards during the last two years - winning games and helping our players develop, being the main ones. I wish Chad Cornes the best of luck and look forward to sticking around to give him all the advice and guidance he needs. I am also excited about helping Ken Hinkley get the footy club back up the AFL ladder next year. There are many people to thank for all their help and support this year, people who make the job of being a senior coach that little bit easier every day. I am very grateful for their assistance. These people are the volunteers and support staff who carry the drinks, wash the guernseys, clean the rooms, are the first to set up on game day and the last to lock the doors at night. Footy clubs are built on volunteers, and we’ve always had a great bunch helping make us a better place to play the game. There are a few who I must single out for going above and beyond during season 2015. My assistant coaches Aaron Greaves, Stuart Cochrane, Jacob Surjan, Trent Hentschel and Darren Beer - I wouldn’t have been able to get through the year without their help, work rate and professionalism. They cannot be faulted for their commitment to our cause, especially in the way they helped me prepare the players for the uncompromising world of SANFL football. I’d like to thank the players for how they handled themselves this year. I’d especially like to thank our captain Steve Summerton for his leadership and also the rest of the

leadership team including Louis Sharrad, Anthony Biemans and Ben Sawford. I’d also like to again thank Tom Logan for his amazing contribution to our club and his outstanding career. Our football manager Scott Peters, runner Eugene Warrior and our trainers, physiotherapists, doctors, our Academy squad led by coach Mark Clayton, as well as our operations manager Linda Crabb did a fantastic job this year, and their support at the club, at games and behind-the-scenes was essential to providing our players with a smooth and supportive environment this year. My family - my wife and three children - they put up with a lot and are so understanding with how much time and energy coaching takes up, as well as the late nights I spend at the club. Without their support, I wouldn’t be able to do what I love. Last but not least, I would like to say a huge thank you to our incredible supporters. You continued to back us all year even though there were a few tough times. Your support of our club in the SANFL and the passion you all brought to our games was second-to-none. We loved seeing so many families and kids at our home games, grabbing signatures from our players, kicking the footy at the breaks and supporting the Magpies loudly, and passionately. The Magpies are such an important part of Port Adelaide’s fabric and to see the way our club’s presence in the SANFL creates a unique type of passion from our supporters is something no other footy team in this country has. I’ll see you at the footy next year, and I’ll be supporting our Maggies harder than anyone.

SANFL YEAR IN REVIEW An up-and-down year saw the Magpies fall a couple of games short of another minor premiership, while a poor finals performance saw the club exit September in the major round’s second week. Matthew Agius, Andrew Fuss and Stephanie Say look back on 2015...

Port Adelaide kicked off the season with a gutsy 66-point win, blitzing South Adelaide at Hickinbotham Oval following their Round 1 bye. In the Magpies’ first game since their 2014 grand final loss, Brendon Ah Chee, Sam Colquhoun, Andrew Moore and John Butcher starred in a full-team effort which saw Port Adelaide dominate.

ROUND 3

A big third term saw the Magpies win their first home game for the season. Scrappy play and missed targets from both sides made for an evenly-fought first half, but the home side responded with four unanswered goals in the third quarter towards an eventual 36-point victory.

Coming up against the 2014 premiers in a grand final rematch, Port Adelaide’s passion wasn’t enough to keep the Redlegs at bay. The Magpies were left to chase a 13-point deficit at the final change after failing to hit the scoreboard in the third term. With storms all night, Port couldn’t catch its traditional rival by the final siren.

Top Scorer

Led by the experienced Steve Summerton, Paul Stewart and Tom Logan, Port Adelaide fought hard to bounce back from their disappointing loss to the Legs. But against an in-form Woodville-West Torrens, the Magpies fell 21 points behind at half time and lagged in essential areas late in the game to eventually fall short.

The Magpies leapfrogged the Double Blues into fifth place on the ladder after a tight armwrestle at Alberton Oval. Port struggled to find intensity and accuracy in front of goal. But led in the middle by Jarman Impey, the momentum was reversed as a thrilling finish saw rookie-listed Johann Wagner kick the sealer.

With its confidence rebuilt after a well-deserved win in Round 6, Port Adelaide taught their ‘other’ traditional rival a lesson in a country clash in the state’s mid-north. Balaklava turned out in force as the Magpies retained their unbeaten SANFL Showdown title in a tough slog won only in the final minutes of the third quarter.

The Magpies held off a fast-finishing Glenelg at Alberton Oval to clinch their fifth win in the first seven games of season 2015. The hosts led by 43 at the break, but the Bays piled on eight goals to three in the second half to fall just eight points short of Port. Mitch Harvey and Jake Neade both kicked three goals, while Aaron Young was best on ground with 23 disposals and two goals.

Central District jumped out of the blocks to set up a 24-point halftime lead before a five-goal to nil third quarter put the Magpies back on track. Three goals apiece in the final term saw Port Adelaide hold on for an eight point victory. Brendon Ah Chee was outstanding with 30 disposals, 9 inside 50s, 8 marks and 7 clearances.

40 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB

After an even first quarter, the Magpies ran all over the Bloods at Richmond Oval, restricting the eventual premiers to just five goals in a 50-point win. Captain Steven Summerton led from the front with a best afield performance with 32 disposals, while Kane Mitchell also found plenty of ball in a vital link-up role.

A five-game winning streak came to an abrupt halt with a disappointing loss to the Crows – the first time Adelaide’s SANFL team has beaten the Magpies at Alberton. The hosts trailed at every break and despite the best efforts of Sam Gray (31 disposals), Steven Summerton (3 goals) and Tom Logan (28 disposals), Port could not claw back into the game.

Port Adelaide began well against Norwood - holding the old enemy scoreless in the opening term. Opening up a 17-point advantage at half time, Port looked to be heading for a memorable wet weather win. Instead Norwood reversed the flow and kicked into the lead with Port falling just short in the dying stages.

Top Scorer

Against the league-leading Eagles, Port Adelaide produced one of its best performances in 2015 to run out 41-point winners on the back of a rollicking second half. While Sam Colquhoun, Karl Amon and Tom Gray bagged two goals each, it was Sam Gray who staked his claim for an AFL recall with a 34-disposal, eight-tackle effort

Perhaps the Magpies’ most disappointing effort for the season, Sturt blew the game wide open with a six-goal-to-one opening half. Sam Gray was strong in the midfield, again, with 31 disposals and nine clearances, but few others worked hard or consistently throughout the game.

In another wet match, Port successfully held Central District at bay despite a sponge-like Alberton surface. Robbie Young and Mitch Harvey were strong in attack for the Magpies, while Steven Summerton again led from the front through the middle of the ground.

Angus Monfries bagged four goals with a mercurial performance up forward in his debut for Port Adelaide in the SANFL, while Ben Sawford ran rampant through the middle with Kane Mitchell and Steven Summerton.

Seven early goals and a 26-point margin ballooning to a 32-point lead at half time had Glenelg looking confident. 40 touches and four goals from Ben Sawford helped Port’s cause though, as the Magpies slowly pegged the margin back. A last ditch goal from Jack Haarsma sealed the a memorable victory at the bay.

42 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB

Port Adelaide cemented its place in the top three with a strong win over South Adelaide at Alberton. The Magpies overcame an early deadlock to eventually win by five goals, with Steven Summerton and Andrew Moore particularly strong.

Steven Summerton was chief destroyer for Port Adelaide in an incredible five-goal performance in a dead-rubber against the Bloods. With both sides locked in second and third place on the ladder, it was Port winning with a big performance that blew out a slender four-point lead to a hefty 37-point victory.

Port Adelaide kicked the opening four goals against West and looked strong in and around the contest in the qualifying final, but things turned awry early in the second term with West finding plenty of football. Three quick goals in the third quarter gave the Bloods a sufficient buffer when heavy rain fell, and Port was left to chase through tough conditions to no avail.

Port Adelaide was bailed out of September by a fast-starting Central that punished Port at stoppages all afternoon. While the Magpies could win and control the ball, their turnovers and missed targets at crucial moments were punished swiftly with several free kicks going the Bulldogs’ way. Port charged within one straight kick, but Billy Frampton was taken out inches away from a final kick at goal. A disappointing end to the year.

YEARBOOK 2015 49


THE LIST REVIEW Matthew Agius, Andrew Fuss and Stephanie Say review the playing list at the end of 2015

1 TRAVIS BOAK

2 KANE MITCHELL

Draft: 2006 AFL Draft, Pick No. 5 Previous clubs: Torquay/Geelong U18 AFL Career games: 177 | Goals: 106 2015 games: 22 | Goals: 13 SANFL Career games: 6 (0) | Goals: 2 (0) 2015 games: - | Goals: -

Draft: 2013 Rookie Draft, Pick No. 5 Previous clubs: Marist/Claremont AFL Career games: 31 | Goals: 18 2015 games: 8 | Goals: 4 SANFL Career games: 26 (21) | Goals: 21 (19) 2015 games: 11 | Goals: 7

A quieter year by his personal standards, Boak became the focus of opposition taggers on more than one occasion in 2015. The Power skipper was particularly impressive in a number of key performances where he worked hard to have significant impact, particularly against Melbourne in Alice Springs and in both games against Hawthorn.

Mitchell found himself changing between AFL and SANFL duties in 2015, but managed to play eight games on the national stage. The hard-running midfielder was also the club’s leading votegetter in the Magarey Medal.

Spending much of the next four months playing strong and consistent football in the SANFL, he was elevated back to the club’s senior team and played consistent football to see out eight of the season’s last nine games.

Demonstrating his capacity as a mobile ruck-forward, Ryder’s strong end to the 2015 season gives a good foundation for next year. Player sponsors: Adelaide Urology

A slight dip in form saw him miss his first AFL game in four years following the Power’s loss to Brisbane in Round 7. He bounced back to perform as a reliable defensive workhorse.

General body niggles persisted towards the end of the season, after spending a game with the Magpies and being rested for the final game against Fremantle.

While it wasn’t a starring season for the vice-captain, Ebert showed his strength, leadership and reliability in what was a tough year for the club. Not missing a game, he shone at the beginning of the year earning three Brownlow votes in both Round 1 and 3 with 34 disposals against Fremantle and booting three majors against North Melbourne.

A relatively quiet, but consistent year for Hartlett. Primarly playing in the defensive half, Hartlett averaged six tackles a game, his aggression and pressure around the contest proving an asset to the Power’s backline. He had a standout performance on Anzac Day against Hawthorn, collecting 22 disposals, nine tackles and a goal.

Gray backed up his breakout 2014 season with another outstanding year. Spending more time in the midfield, Gray averaged nearly eight clearances per game – second only to Brownlow Medal winner Nat Fyfe. Again showed his ability to turn games off his own boot, leading to his second John Cahill Medal in as many years. Despite the team’s disappointing performance, was rewarded with All-Australian selection. Player sponsors: White Marquee Event Hire

His stats in those games didn’t look impressive, but his impact on the game - crashing packs, creating contests - was greater. Kicking in front of goal remains a problem, but he showed enough to earn another contract for 2016. Player sponsors: Romeo’s Retail Group, Three Little Pigs

Pre-season shoulder surgery, a foot injury in Round 8, a late withdrawal with the flu in Round 14 and, finally, a second shoulder operation after Round 20 left his year a write-off. Was otherwise solid when on the field, but will be looking for a better year in 2016. Player sponsors: Energy Walling Systems, Mouse Promotions

Was able to stay relatively injury-free in 2015 and was a consistent performer in the black and white at SANFL level. Stewart had two runs of three consecutive games in the AFL side, but was unable to hold down his spot with strong competition from younger teammates coming through the SANFL ranks.

Amon’s strong SANFL form was rewarded with an AFL debut in Round 7. Despite a disappointing loss, he was a shining light for the Power; coming on as the sub in the third quarter and racking up nine disposals and a goal. Moved between AFL and SANFL level all year, but a 16-disposal, three-goal game in the wet at Carrara in Round 22 showed what Amon is capable of.

He played one game in Round 7, before cracking the side in Round 15 – playing the final nine games for the year. He again showed his versatility and running power, mixing time down back with spells on the wing. O’Shea will be looking to make his mark early in season 2016. Player sponsors: Romeo’s Retail Group

He returned in Round 8 to play the next 10 games, getting straight back to the bull-like football he is becoming known for.

Spending a little more time in the midfield, he hit career-best form midway through the year and finished a disappointing team season on a strong individual note after being named in the AFL’s All-Australian team for the second time.

While Cornes admitted he was fighting to maintain his personally high standards, he still managed to produce consistent football in the final seven games of his career in 2015. Retires as arguably the club’s best AFL player.

Despite his form dip, his sabbatical playing for the Magpies included a dominant performance in a night time thriller against Glenelg and led to his recall for the final two games of the year.

He was put back to the SANFL for one game before returning against the Bulldogs and playing out the rest of the year in the AFL.

Continuing to have a high impact in the SANFL across 13 games, Moore polled well in the Magarey Medal and continued to be one of the Magpies’ powerful midfield cogs. He played five AFL games for the season – against Carlton, Sydney, Essendon, St Kilda and the Western Bulldogs. Departed Alberton to return home to Victoria and play with Richmond.

Back and hip problems limited Carlile’s game time in 2015. When fit, Carlile was one of the Power’s most consistent performers and led by example in defence. Carlile’s running ability and competitive desire against the league’s best forwards remains a strength. His game against Hawthorn on Anzac Day saw him poll Brownlow votes for the first time in 157 games to that point. Player sponsors: Focus International Marketing, Esca Restaurant and Espresso Bar

Impressive early in the season, Pittard’s brave, take-the-game-on approach to football continued to both bedazzle opponents and draw the praise of the crowd. While that audacious play that occasionally sees the Power paceman get caught out, he remains the critical playmaker for the team running out of defence.

Back from a debilitating anterior cruciate ligament injury suffered in 2014, Colquhoun didn’t quite hit his stride but nevertheless showed the value he will add to Port Adelaide in the long-term with several solid showings in both the AFL and SANFL. His 2015 season is a base from which he can launch into a full pre-season for 2016.

Another strong season from the club’s SANFL captain culminated in his third A.R.McLean Medal as the club’s best and fairest player. Summerton played every game of the year as he draws ever closer to his 200th SANFL game. His use of the ball and leadership around the ground was called upon time and again through the year. His effort in the final minor round game against West Adelaide, booting five goals, was a highlight.

Playing 10 games in 2015, Sawford proved he was a capable SANFL contributor after dominant displays against North Adelaide and Glenelg, where he had 31 and 40 disposals respectively. Evolved into a proven clearance midfielder and will offer maturity to Port’s SANFL list again in 2016. Departed for Glenelg at the end of the year.

Tom Gray, younger brother of AFL rookie Sam, stepped up from the Academy team to play nine league games in 2015. His debut season was one of promise, where he was a regular ball-winner playing through the middle of the ground. Player sponsor: AA Secondhand Pallets

A quality forward, Gordon wasn’t able to push into the league line-up despite strong form in the Academy, owing to the numbers of key position forwards at senior level. Having played two league games last year, his good pre-season helped him star in the Academy as a prolific goal kicker.

Injury hampered Biemans’s season, but he returned late to play against Central District in the semi final. A useful, experienced utility, Biemans brings a typical Port Adelaide hardness to contests and broke back into the league team on the back of a singularly impressive forward performance in the Academy.

Young is an excitement machine who breathes Port Adelaide football. Like others, injury curtailed his season, however he was able to show his excellent work with the ball in several late-season games. Will be looking to have a big pre-season to get his body right for 2016.

AWARD WINNERS

ALL THE KEY MERITS FOR 2015

JOHN CAHILL MEDAL – SECOND PLACE CHAD WINGARD Wingard polled a narrow second to Robbie Gray, having failed to score a vote in a quiet finish to the season. As Port Adelaide’s leading goal kicker, he was a notoriously difficult match-up for opposition defenders, but his ability to win the ball and use his footy smarts to deliver to a teammate or run forward to create a score continue to be his chief weapons. Other achievements All-Australian forwardflank, Australian international rules squad. JOHN CAHILL MEDAL – THIRD PLACE JACK HOMBSCH A very consistent start to the year from Hombsch quivered midway through the season as the Power’s defence battled internal injuries and the pressure of quality opposition more frequently. Throughout this period, Jack Hombsch stood up as a shining light, and arguably the Power’s most improved player. Many supporters were pencilling him in for the club’s best and fairest at the halfway point of the year, but this third place is a testament to his consistent season. FOS WILLIAMS MEDALLIST TRAVIS BOAK His third Fos Williams Medal in a row puts Boak among some of Port Adelaide’s highest-regarded clubmen. As captain of the club, quality senior leadership is requisite, but the esteem he is held in by his fellow players is highlighted again by them voting him the shining example of camaraderie and culture within the change rooms. A difficult season for him on-field, but he continued to set a strong example. Other achievements Peter Badcoe VC Medal (ANZAC Round).

62 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB

GAVIN WANGANEEN MEDAL OLLIE WINES Claiming his third consecutive Gavin Wanganeen Medal, Wines has cemented himself as the most promising young talent to grace the corridors of Alberton. Despite two serious injuries, he continued to offer a high-impact third season. Claiming three of these awards by the age of 21, Wines will not be eligible for the Wanganeen Medal again in 2016, however seems unlikely to be matched for his incredible consistency as a top-ten polling youth player. COACHES’ AWARD BRENDON AH CHEE Making his debut in his fourth season on Port Adelaide’s list, Ah Chee’s rise to the AFL is a testament to his perseverance and dedication to self-improvement. He debuted against North Melbourne and had a hand in sealing the win at Docklands that night. He polled three Brownlow Medal votes against the GWS Giants near the end of the season and was among the best performers in the Power’s final games. The criteria for this award were modified for 2015 to reflect the coaches’ choice of the most improved player on the previous season. JOHN McCARTHY AWARD NATHAN KRAKOUER Nathan Krakouer was drafted onto Port Adelaide’s AFL list this year, and immediately volunteered to assist as a mentor to Aboriginal youth involved in the club’s community programs and work actively within the Aboriginal program space. That he instigated his mentorship with a number of young Aboriginal children with no request from the club, Krakouer’s dedication to his culture and heritage and promoting reconciliation and greater cooperation between indigenous and non-indigenous communities were core to his selection for this award.

A.R. McLEAN MEDAL – SECOND PLACE, ANTHONY WILLIAMS MEMORIAL TROPHY – LEAGUE MOST COURAGEOUS PLAYER TOM LOGAN It should come as no surprise the ever reliable Logan finished second in the A.R. McLean Medal count, nor that he was presented the prestigious Anthony Williams Memorial Trophy. His tough, hard, uncompromising football was on show all year and his consistent effort in his retirement year leaves a legacy for others to follow. A.R. McLEAN MEDAL – THIRD PLACE KANE MITCHELL Port Adelaide’s Magarey Medal count leader, Mitchell played a mix of AFL and SANFL football in 2015. His trademark run-and-carry and ability to win the footy at league level makes him an important part of the Magpies line-up. His perseverance in the Magpies’ failed finals campaign is also a credit to him. COACHES’ TROPHY BRENDON AH CHEE Remarkably, Ah Chee’s second league coaches’ trophy comes in a year where he won the corresponding merit at AFL level. A hard working midfielder, Ah Chee’s split year at local and national level didn’t stop him getting the job done for his coaches and teammates when wearing a black-and-white jumper. BEST FIRST YEAR PLAYER SIDNEY MASTERS A reliable and honest defender, Masters became a regular fixture in the Port Adelaide league team. His first season in the league competition was tough at times, but his persistence helped him to develop into a solid mainstay of the Port line-up, and earn another contract for 2016. FOS WILLIAMS MEMORIAL TROPHY – LEAGUE MOST DEDICATED ANTHONY BIEMANS Biemans is a reliable and committed player, trains hard and applies himself to the craft of football. While injury hampered his season at times, his attitude to rehabilitation and recovery was second to none.

BRUCE WEBER MEMORIAL TROPHY – BEST TEAM MAN LOUIS SHARRAD Sharrad claims his first award as the club’s best team man in a year where he featured almost entirely at league level and found a place in the side as a reliable utility. Gives plenty to his teammates as one of the club’s senior leaders. MAX PORTER MEMORIAL TROPHY - LEAGUE MOST CONSISTENT STEVEN SUMMERTON It should come as little surprise Steven Summerton was both the winner of the A.R. McLean Medal and the club’s most consistent Magpie. That consistent ability to win the ball, impact offensively or defensively and bring his teammates into each game is a credit to his maturity as one of the SANFL’s best midfielders. BOB CLAYTON MEMORIAL (SERVICE AWARD) GARRY HOCKING After two seasons at the helm of Port Adelaide’s league team, Garry Hocking vacates the head chair in the coaches’ box to return to the club’s AFL coaching panel. His two seasons have been meritorious, with a strong winning record, a minor premiership, grand final appearance and a minor round second place. His dedication to preserving the traditional values of Port Adelaide at local level with the emerging and cutting-edge trends of elite modern football resonated with supporters.

I

F Robbie Gray was a chess piece, he’d be the queen.

Stop and think about it for a moment. The queen is the best piece on the board. It can move anywhere. It’s not unbeatable, but it might take a few pieces to even get close. For the chess player, the queen is a weapon – it has versatility, excellent manoeuvrability, its only limits are the boundaries of the playing board. If you’ve lost your queen, you hope your opponent doesn’t have theirs. Sound familiar? For the master tactician moving his pieces along the board that is the AFL playing field – the coach – a piece like Robbie Gray is essential. Desired. Most of all, the coach knows such a player can be relied upon it to get him out of a squeeze. Robbie Gray confirmed himself as one of the most critical pieces of the Port Adelaide playing armada in 2015. After taking all before him the year before – a debut All-Australian selection, international rules representation, a first John Cahill Medal and recognition as the AFL Coaches’ Association’s Champion Player – Gray then did what every great player does. He backed it up again. Granted, the coaches resoundingly endorsed Fremantle’s Nathan Fyfe as the year’s best player, but Gray’s personal achievements were almost a carbon copy of last season’s. A second John Cahill Medal, narrowly won from his 2013 predecessor Chad Wingard. All-Australian selection, again, and a three ‘over’ performance in the hybrid international rules game against the Irish.

66 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB

With a freshly minted Showdown Medal also sitting in his growing trophy cabinet, Gray’s personal success would be the envy of many a sports lover. Still, there’s that vital piece missing – September silverware – and his personal accolades pale to the significance and meaning gained from shared achievement. The humble, quiet Power midfielder shuns the limelight and avoids speaking publically where he can. It’s just his personality. But when he does speak, his collegial nature shines through. Upon winning his second John Cahill Medal as Port Adelaide’s club champion, Gray was quick to thank those who put him on the stage at the club’s award ceremony. “You don’t get these sorts of things without lots of hard work, but much of it comes from your teammates’ work,” Gray said. “You don’t just get your hands on the ball yourself, you need the help of others, and the support of others, to have them keep on pushing you. “I’m lucky I get to run around with these guys every day, and just play footy and enjoy playing footy. “We’re not about individuals, you’ve got to have the help of others to even get close to something like this.” Few within the changerooms would disagree with his assessment, however most would also acknowledge Gray has again been brilliant in 2015. The thirst for success will drive Gray again in 2016, and he isn’t planning to rest through another hot Adelaide summer.

work harder to get back to where we want to be. “As a group we want to bounce back, we looked back on the season – the way we finished the season was a positive – but it was a pretty inconsistent year overall. “We just need to be consistent as a group and keep working hard to meet our standards, if we can do that together we’ll give ourselves the best shot next year.” The Magpies have a strong playing piece as well. Among the rugged and hard timber associated with SANFL football, this player is like silk – smooth, clean, slippery. Like Robbie Gray, Port Adelaide’s chief Magpie Steven Summerton is a crucial marker at Port Adelaide. Summerton is versatile, elusive, a strong kick and excellent with his hands. But Summerton holds a different responsibility to Gray. While the back-to-back John Cahill Medallist can lead by simply playing excellent football, the recrowned A.R.McLean Medallist has the formal duty of captaincy. It’s not an easy burden to carry. Not only must he bear the charge of captaining his team, he must also shoulder the mystique and honour of wearing Port Adelaide’s No. 1 guernsey, on the back of its traditional jumper. It means so much, to so many, given the roll call of great players to have held the captaincy before him. His passion and understanding of his duty, though, translates into his football.

“It wasn’t the season we’d hoped for,” Gray said of 2015

His third A.R. McLean Medal (he won his first in 2010) confirms him as one of the best players of Port Adelaide’s last 20 years in SANFL football.

“I think we were all disappointed to fall back the way we did, and we just need to

He also won the club’s Max Porter Memorial Trophy as its most consistent Magpie.


The secret to such consistency? Preparation, hard work and application to the rigours of top-line league football. “Consistency in footy is really important, and it is something we all strive for at training or in games,” Summerton said. “It’s hard work, to keep pushing yourself in a game, and I guess that’s one thing I’ve learned over the years. “Preparation and recovery are really important to that, I’ve learned from my coaches over the years how important they are – it’s probably what you learn, more than anything, with experience.” His hard work on the track has translated seamlessly into regular competitiveness in games. He’s represented South Australia in state games, he’s been named in teams of the year and last season he was recognised by the SANFL coaches as the best player in the competition. All he lacks, and desires, is the chance to hold that silverware. “To win a third A.R.McLean Medal is something I didn’t think would be possible, and it is truly an honour to get that recognition from your coaches, especially with all the talent in our team,” Summerton said. “But I reckon everyone would agree that we don’t play for individual awards, we play for team awards and success,” Summerton said. “The team didn’t perform when it needed to this year, that’s something that burns pretty deep. “We’ll go again next year, we’ll be working pretty hard to make up for it.”

CHAD CORNES WITH JAMES WAKELIN

68 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB


Firstly, Chad, what’s it like to be back at Port Adelaide? I was watching the boys doing their 400-metre runs in my first week back. It was quite a brutal session and it brought back a few memories of when I was the one doing that all those years ago. It’s great to be back. I’ve already learned from some really experienced and intelligent coaches in this group and I’m lucky to be a part of that this coming year. How do you see your role this year and how does it fit within the football structure in place at the club? I’m really fortunate with the role. I’m coaching with the AFL group as well I’m here all day, every day. I sit in every meeting, join in weights with the boys, try and push them in the gym and then Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday morning run all the Magpies coaching. The Magpies program is very similar to what we do at AFL level, so our SANFL players are getting the best of both worlds in terms of their conditioning and their footy. The footy structure has changed in the time you’ve been away from the club, what thoughts have you had on it coming back this time? It was a huge frustration when I was playing when players were going back to different clubs, getting different messages and not playing in their right positions. To have everyone here under the same structure, the same game plan and the same culture the whole time is great for the players, great for the coaches and great for the club as a whole. Do you think the players understanding the club’s history and its importance? I met with Steven Summerton in the lead-up to the pre-season and his passion and understanding of the club’s history was great. He’s been here a long time, but his attitude and how much the Magpies mean to him just blew me away. I think the biggest thing is educating new players about that history and culture. Those who haven’t been here long have shown that they ‘get it’ – it’s the job of those of us who have spent a bit of time here to keep educating new players on the history. It should be safe to assume the Magpies will still play a very similar style to the Power? My job at the moment is learning all the players’ strengths and weaknesses. The program will be built on the Power’s game style, but I’ll put my own spin on that -

things I learned over the last couple of years, the way I played, the way I’ve seen other players play. It’ll be built on team care, doing the team thing, playing tough, hard, aggressive football. Obviously the game plan has changed over the years, but the attitude and values we want from Port Adelaide players hasn’t. How important is the buy-in from players to understand what it is to be at Port Adelaide and understand how we play? I grew up around the Glenelg footy club, and there was a big rivalry between Port and the Bays at that time. I think most footy people understand what Port Adelaide has traditionally been about, even if they support other teams. It is something special to pull on the Magpies guernsey and even pulling on the polo on my first day back here, it did feel special. The closest I’d got to it was wearing a heritage jumper in the AFL twice, but I’d never worn anything with the Magpie logo. I have a real sense of living up to the standards of the past players, the supporters, the volunteers - you have to respect them in the way you perform on game day. What do you hope to achieve with the boys this year? I want them to display a team-first attitude first and foremost, so that people can see by the way they play that they really care about each other on the field. I also want to see them play the Port Adelaide way, which I know the supporters will be big on. As the club Creed says, “Honourable defeat of our club and guernsey can only come after human endeavour on the playing field is completely exhausted.” I don’t like defeat, but to me that says if we do lose, you’ll see us go down fighting to the very end, that we’ll never, ever give up, and that we’ll be tough for every opponent to match. But the Creed also says that we need to active, aggressive and devoted to the cause. Our cause is to be successful as a footy club, and I think that’s more important than anything. You’ve locked in eight contracted players before the start of preseason, you’ve got another seven to go, what’s the process for that? It’s a good incentive for the young guys in last year’s Academy squad. It should drive them to train harder over the pre-season and to impress for a spot. I would think we’d probably have 12 or 13 signed at the start of the season and just keep two or

three for young guys who impress in the Academy to be rewarded later on. How important is it to have that carrot in-season? I think a good example last year was Tom Corcoran who was dominating at Academy level and doing all the right things but didn’t have any chance to go up to play for the Magpies. I’m told if there was that chance, he would’ve been worthy for league selection. The ability to be able to play those guys is great for them and the club. And part of your role is to help push those AFL-listed guys so they make it into the Power team? If they can do the right thing playing for the Magpies and earn a place in the AFL team, that will show me the program is working and we’re all doing our jobs well. The supporters have been really supportive of you being back. Is that humbling? They’ve always treated me so well. The rivalry between the Cornes family and Port was quite strong back when I was drafted and I was really nervous coming here. But from day one of pre-season in November 1997 when I was clapped by supporters, to now, it’s just been outstanding. What really blew me away was Kane’s last game this year, coming over for that and walking around the edge of the ground with Dad and there was a standing ovation - that really did blow me away. Although I’m not sure they were standing for Graham. Seeing the messages of support from people, and people stopping me in the street since I got back has been great and I just hope I can repay them in the right way. And there’s now going to be a bit of brotherly rivalry in the SANFL with Kane taking on a part-time role at Glenelg, and of course there’ll always be a rivalry there with your Dad’s long history at the Bays – are you looking forward to meeting Glenelg for the first time? Dad’s used to it now, and I caught up with him after work one day and I had the full Magpies kit on. He asked me to take it off. Deep down he’s one rapt to have me back home, rapt that I get a chance to enhance my coaching with my own team in such a great program like this. He’s happy when I’m happy, and I’m pretty happy at the moment. Kane surprised us with his new role at the Bays and it will just give that extra bit of spice to our clashes with Glenelg.

HAT AN INCREDIBLE year 2015 became for the young men of the Port Adelaide Academy.

After finishing in seventh spot in 2014, it was an amazing effort from the boys to work their way into second spot in the minor round this year. We couldn’t be more proud. I watched many of them grow and develop their craft after coaching them in the under-18s and it was an absolute honour to continue guiding them on their footballing journey throughout 2015. I took over the reigns as Academy coach from Jacob Surjan, who did an excellent job developing the Academy in 2014 under our club’s new football structure. Last year however, many of the boys were still aged 17-18 and were yet to mature, but with a year under their belt, they would be better placed to win more games in 2015. THE YEAR THAT WAS Like the senior team, we started our season in Round 2 against South Adelaide at and had an inspiring 59-point win over the Panthers. It was the start to the year we wanted – winning your first game is always a positive. We then went on to draw with North Adelaide which left the players feeling pretty deflated, and then our next three games were heavy losses to Norwood and the Eagles, and then a close loss to Sturt. That was when we began to really drill home the importance of ‘team care’, recovering well and doing the little things right. The two losses to the Redlegs and the Eagles were especially hard to take, but I was pleased our coaching panel worked hard with the players to build confidence within our whole group. If they worked hard, the results would eventually swing their way. The boys turned their season around after our Round 7 bye with big wins against Glenelg, Central District and West Adelaide.

For me, our Round 13 clash against Norwood, which gave us an absolute bath earlier in the season, was the turning point. We ended up winning that clash by 14 points. It was an amazing feeling knowing the Redlegs had given us a few headaches in the past, but we were able to finally overcome them. That was when the belief within the group really started to grow. Their commitment to the job at hand had been clear for many weeks, and now there was a shared determination to finish our season strongly. While we were beaten by the Eagles and Sturt, we finished strongly by winning our last four games of the season to claim second spot. Making the finals was great and the boys worked really hard in their qualifying final to beat North Adelaide by five points. We then lost a tough semi to Woodville West-Torrens - the eventual premier, and a team that had won every game of the year. Although finishing second gave us a second chance, the Roosters got their revenge and beat us convincingly in the preliminary final. Obviously, playing in a grand final is every football club’s goal, and Port Adelaide has always worked to win a premiership in any grade it plays. To not have that chance was bitterly disappointing, but on reflection I believe the season was quite successful in many ways. It has given us a foundation to launch another year of improvement - making the finals and then missing out on a chance to play for the premiership will give the players a rabbit to chase in 2016. The things we worked on came together in the latter part of the year, and I was really impressed with the players. It took a little while for them to understand what the coaches were after, in terms of structure and direction, but towards the back-half of the year they really grew.

We saw real improvements in the games of individuals this year and many showed promising signs of having great football careers ahead of them. We have lost a few league contracted players for next season, so those who have been around for a couple of years will need to step up and fill the spots we have for contracts. We will have new guys coming to the club, so we will all work together to ensure all our recruits understand the ‘Port Adelaide way’ and how we want to play. I really enjoyed coaching the Academy in 2015 and learned much from our SANFL senior coach Garry Hocking and the whole club has worked hard to bring elite AFL-style values into the Academy program. I’m excited to take most of the group, along with some new blood, into 2016, and we are all looking forward to seeing their hard work push them further ahead. THANKS There are many people that I must thank for helping me get through my first year coaching the Academy side. Firstly, I’d like to extend a very big thank you to thank the players because they are the ones that do all the work. We put in a lot of time, but they physically and mentally do the work on the field. I’d also like to thank my other coaches because they have been a great support for me. Garry Hocking was amazing, as was Shaun Hart as director of coaching and he gave me a lot of feedback. Our football manager Scott Peters and our marketing guru Linda Crabb - they are the ones that run the Magpies - and all our support staff and volunteers. My family – Alicia, Gracy, Ziggy – they are the ones who allow me the time that I put into coaching, and come to most of our games to support the boys and our footy club. Lastly, to all our supporters, without you, we wouldn’t survive, so thank you for being amazing again. See you next year!

DANIEL NORTON


THE NAME CORNES IS SYNONYMOUS WITH PORT ADELAIDE... (BET YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU’D READ THAT STATEMENT, DID YOU?)

K

ANE CORNES IS AN ENIGMA.

Across 300 AFL games for Port Adelaide, he went about his business with little fanfare, rarely straying from his straight line approach and always happy to play his shutdown role for the team. He certainly didn’t have the same highlights reel as his brother Chad. Controversy rarely followed him and his public presentation through corporate appearances and media interviews was always measured and well considered. Those who knew Kane off the field, though, knew of a more complex character, a personality certainly not as clear-cut as his demeanour on field. They know a man who was intensely focussed, ambitious to the extreme and driven as much by his own insecurities as to try and prove others wrong. Kane was different and that’s what separated him as one of the best. As a child, he would close his eyes at night and dream of playing AFL. As a young man, he hired a personal trainer to hone his fitness before the national draft, instead of going to schoolies weekend with his mates.

In hindsight, Kane and Port Adelaide were always meant to be. But where did this single-mindedness start? What drove Cornes from such a young age? His mother Pam remembers a young Kane whose one dream was to only ever play AFL.

Unlike his under-10 coach at Glenelg Primary, his first senior coach at Port Adelaide, Mark Williams, knew he had what it took to succeed.

“A teacher asked Kane when he was 12, ‘what do you want to be when you’re older?’” Pam recalls.

“In his early days, I described Kane as being most like Nathan Buckley as a player,” Williams says.

“Kane replied ‘I want to be an AFL footballer,’” to which the teacher then said, ‘But what if you can’t do that as a job?’”

“I wasn’t referring to his kicking ability or the way he ran and carried the ball, it was all about his determination and singlemindedness to succeed.”

Kane’s reply was straightforward, “I will be an AFL footballer.’” His mind was made up – AFL football or bust – as a 12-year-old he had put all his eggs all in one basket. With so much on the line, it is easy to understand where Kane’s insecurities came from. Coming off second best in his brutal football battles with older brother Chad after school at Glenelg’s Partridge House wouldn’t have helped his confidence. Nor would being bullied through his school years for being the son of former Glenelg superstar and then Adelaide Crows coach Graham Cornes.

Most definitely, the comments from his under-10 football coach at Glenelg Primary did As a new Port Adelaide draftee, he reported nothing to allay a young Kane’s fears. to pre-season training two weeks earlier than required despite being told by then“I remember his comments clearly, he said, ‘The football manager Rob Snowdon not to do so. reality is none of you will make it to the AFL,’” Kane recalls. As a fringe AFL player searching for his chance to debut, he would go to the home of his senior coach Mark Williams and demand why wasn’t being picked in the side. Driven, passionate, craving success, unrelenting – these are traits that describe Kane. Of course they are also traits that sum up Port Adelaide’s own core values.

During that career, Kane would claim four John Cahill Medals as the club’s best and fairest player and would receive All-Australian honours twice.

“And I remember being so offended by that comment and that spurred me on to prove him wrong.” He certainly did. After being recruited by Port Adelaide with pick No. 20 at the 2000 National Draft, Kane went on to represent Port Adelaide in a club record 300 AFL games.

Success soon followed, and Kane was only in his fourth season as a 21-year-old when he achieved the ultimate triumph – an AFL premiership. Kane was a fresh-faced tagger when given the most difficult role in football, to run with the opposition’s best midfielder and stop them from having any impact. In 2004, some of the greatest midfielders in the game were running around, and the Brisbane Lions possessed four of them: Michael Voss, Jason Akermanis, Nigel Lappin and Simon Black. After meeting with his midfield mentor Phil Walsh on the Monday leading into the grand final, Kane left Alberton knowing he had been set one mighty task. Of that ‘fab four’ he was assigned Simon Black, a man who won the Brownlow Medal two years earlier, and claimed the Norm Smith Medal for his 39 possessions in the 2003 Grand Final. No easy task. Kane would rely on all the traits that inspired him through his childhood to drive him on the field in his club’s first AFL Grand Final. Port Adelaide would claim its inaugural AFL premiership by 40 points on an unforgettable day at the MCG.

And while Byron Pickett was deservedly awarded the Norm Smith medal for his scintillating effort and Gavin Wanganeen lauded for his four-goal performance, it was Kane’s remarkable stopping job on Black that equally contributed to the Power’s win. Former Port Adelaide captain and 2004 premiership player Dom Cassisi recalled the tagging masterclass being performed almost invisibly on the ground that day. By the end of play, Cornes had kept Black to just 15 possessions while gathering 19 of his own. “It’s easy to forget how good some of the players were from that era but Simon Black was an absolute champion; at that time he was a superstar at the top of his game and almost impossible to stop,” Cassisi says. “Kane was still so young and still learning his craft. It was a huge role on the biggest stage of all and for him to be so determined to get the job done was a huge reason why we won the final.” His coaches on the day echoed Cassisi’s sentiment with Walsh describing Kane’s game as, “one of the great performances,” given the quality of the opponent while Williams said, “he played a massive role in Port Adelaide winning the grand final.” Kane is still regularly reminded of how his role that day, along with so many other heroic performances within that magnificent premiership team, has impacted Port Adelaide forever. “I still get people coming up to me all the time on the street who say, ‘thanks for what you did in 2004 – that Grand Final day was the best day of my life,’” Cornes says. “I think to myself, ‘You’re absolutely right – it was an incredible day.’” “It wasn’t about the result as much as it was about the memories and friendships that last for years, that are just so special.” Kane failed to play in another premiership, but his list of personal achievements over the next 10 years is a testament to his application and consistency, underlined by his extraordinary record of finishing in the top three of 10 out of 11 Port Adelaide best and fairest counts. He would continue to play on the stars of the game, including names like Brent Harvey, Chris Judd, Sam Mitchell, Scott Pendlebury and Andrew McLeod. McLeod lauded Cornes’s competitive spirit and quality as marks of a player who was a “relentless opponent who you knew was always there and just constantly at you.”

Kane would play with some of Port Adelaide’s greatest players in Warren Tredrea, Gavin Wanganeen and his brother Chad, and would be mentored by some of the sharpest minds in football beginning with Williams and Walsh and finishing with current Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley. “Choco’s loyalty to players and his ability to teach was amazing,” Cornes says. “Walshy taught me the art of how to play football properly and Kenny released the shackles for me, backed me in to the hilt and allowed me to thoroughly enjoy my final few years of footy.” In looking back on his time spent coaching Cornes, Hinkley’s only regret was that it wasn’t longer. “I’ve been very fortunate to see Kane at a stage in his career where he just wanted to be around our club, and gave everything he could to our club,” Hinkley says. “I’m incredibly honoured he was able to play the way that he did for our team during this time. I just wish I could have been here a bit longer with him because you just know that Kane Cornes is everything that Port Adelaide stands for.” The final chapter on a distinguished career came when Kane called time midway through the 2015 season. On announcing his retirement to team mates and staff, Kane was out of character – he could not compose himself - tears flowing as he recalled how much all of his teammates across his career have shaped his life. The tears were real. Football and Port Adelaide meant so much to him. The boy who grew up just dreaming of playing AFL football had more than achieved his goal. He had proved countless critics and doomsayers wrong, including his old under-10 coach, and all the while had the strength of character to deal with insecurities that may have stopped any other man. While Kane retires as one of the decorated greats of Port Adelaide, he would rather his legacy reflect his attitude to life than the amount of trophies in his cabinet. “I just want to be remembered for someone who got the absolute best out of himself and someone who is super competitive and would do anything to win.” Of those qualities, few would argue.

TOM LOGAN WAS THE TRADITIONAL PORT ADELAIDE PLAYER FOR A NEW AGE OF ELITE FOOTBALL, WITH HIS RETIREMENT, THE CLUB FAREWELLED ONE OF ITS FAVOURITE SONS

T

OM LOGAN BLEEDS PORT ADELAIDE.

He loves the club for the decade of football it has given him and the club loves him back. From the supporters in the nosebleed section to the volunteers and Dad’s Army die-hards, to the players and their coaches, Tom Logan commands respect and inspires admiration. A warrior, a junkyard dog, the heart and soul of Port Adelaide, Logan was widely and colourfully described while playing in the Power and Magpies jumpers. All of them share a theme – Logan was committed to Port Adelaide, and lived its ancient values better than anyone. Logan retired at the end of 2015 after 12 seasons in the AFL system – 10 spent at Alberton - having been originally drafted by the Brisbane Lions in 2003.

days of running around the paddocks of the Top End. A ruptured spleen playing in Darwin as a teenager, a broken jaw in his first hit out with the Brisbane Lions, not to mention the numerous concussions, cuts, bruises, and a prolific tendency to bleed freely for his footy teams since - Tom Logan is the pin up boy for old school footy in a modern age. Few would argue the name ‘Tom Logan’ evokes images of bandages wrapped around a bloodied face, with claret dripping through an iconic brown beard. “I was never scared of getting hurt, it didn’t cross my mind to be honest, I just thought if I went harder than my opponent, I would come off alright,” Logan says. It’s easy to forget that the Port Adelaide 100-gamer actually started his career at the Lions.

As Logan puts it in his straight-shooting way, “football is one of the better jobs going around,” and the 30-year-old couldn’t be happier with his time playing at Alberton.

He played just three games then, before being delisted.

Logan played 117 AFL games and kicked 27 goals in a career built around hardness and a kamikaze approach to his football.

On the other end of the phone was Port Adelaide’s head of football, Peter Rohde.

As Logan explained, he enjoyed his teammates’s expectation that he would put his body on the line, every time.

“I’m so thankful for the opportunity the club gave me, I never would have thought that a phone call from Peter Rohde would’ve ended up a 10-year career at a footy club,” Logan says.

“I think early on, that was just the way I played,” Logan says. “Then it became recognised internally and I was more aware that it was something I brought to the team. Something special, maybe.

Then came the phone call that would be his AFL lifeline – a place on a rookie list with the Lions’ bitter rival – Port Adelaide.

A decade of footy service isn’t bad for a kid who, as a 10-year-old in Bordertown, only had a vague interest in football, even when he played his first game.

And there were plenty of hits.

It wasn’t until his family headed to Alice Springs in the 1990s and he joined the Federals that he really started to enjoy football.

Logan could probably publish his own greatest hits reel, going back to the early

began playing for the Waratahs before the Lions picked him up with selection 49 in the 2003 National Draft. But it was at Port Adelaide where Logan flourished, firstly under Mark Williams, then Matthew Primus and over the past three seasons with Ken Hinkley. “I just so thankful to those guys, as well as Buddha (Garry Hocking) who has coached me at the Magpies over the past two seasons,” Logan says. “Just the mates that I’ve made… from the time I played, all the way through, they’ve all been just a great bunch of blokes. “I’ve made friends that I’m going to have for the rest of my life. “It’s exciting to sit back and watch what they can do and almost ride the journey with them now.” As much as he is thankful to his past coaches, his coaches would equally thank him for the example he set his teammates. They say players pick themselves, and Logan is a living, breathing example of that. He played on the edge, because for a grunt player like Tommy, footy life is lived on the edge – any game could be your last. In a decade at Port Adelaide, Logan had eight one-year contracts and a single, luxurious two-year deal in 2010. “It was my way to keep playing football at Port,” Logan explains. “In the early days it would get to July or August and I’d be starting to think, ‘Am I going to get another year?’” “It would play with your head a bit, and I just wanted to keep going, it didn’t matter if it was a one or a two-year deal – whatever I was offered, I was going to take it. “It’s a pretty insecure life in some ways, you don’t know when your number will be up. “But I got older, I just felt more comfortable that outside football I’d be able to make a go of things.

YEARBOOK 2015 79


“From then on it wasn’t so stressful, contract worries weren’t keeping me up at night, every time I got another deal, I just decided within myself that I was going to make the most of the opportunity.”

“Along with Michael Wilson, Tom Logan is the toughest player I’ve played with so it’s great to have them both at the Magpies,” Chad Cornes says (Wilson is the Magpies physiotherapist).

And Tom Logan always did.

“And with many of the Magpies contracted players having played with Tommy, I know how much they admire and respect him.

Over his final two seasons, it was largely in the Magpies jumper that he was called on to represent Port Adelaide, as the club looked to him to teach younger players what was required to play top-line football.

“I recall David Koch saying Tommy ‘is Port Adelaide,’ and that just shows how time much everyone at the club - Kochie, Keith Thomas, Kenny - have for him.

While his time on the national stage was reduced, he loved the new opportunity to play footy and mentor new players.

“He’s too good a man not to have involved in Port Adelaide in some way, so we’re pretty lucky to have him on board.

“I’ve really enjoyed my last two years, getting to know the younger players and all the league-contracted Magpie players,” Logan says.

“He’s just a great example of a team-first attitude, he’d do anything for the group, he didn’t care how he played the game individually, he just wanted to help the team do well.”

“This is such a great club, with such a proud history, and I’m just rapt to have played here. “What we have is special – unique – it is something no other footy club in this country has, or ever will have. “To have our AFL blokes working with our SANFL blokes and the guys in the Academy, it’s a special thing, and it makes us so much like a local footy club. I reckon it’s our strength. “I’m really lucky to have been one of the first to experience that.” Tom Logan’s playing chapter has closed. No more will he go through the motions of suiting up in a guernsey, shorts and footy boots to ‘guts it out’ for his club. But as one door shuts, another opens. Just weeks out of footy life, Logan returned quietly to Alberton. Why? To start his new job as an Academy assistant coach to Mark Clayton and as a runner for Chad Cornes’s league side. So the Port-Logan connection lives on. With Cornes commanding from the coaches’ box and Logan barking messages on the field, the Magpies won’t be short of hardness to inspire and guide them in 2016.

80 PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB

That humility was fostered by his close family who have supported the Port Adelaide stalwart throughout his career. “My time in football was made possible by my family, and when you retire you reflect a lot on who helps put you in the position of playing footy,” says Logan. “My family have been the constant in my footy career. “Especially my mum Jude, dad Pete, brother Sam, sister Steph, and lastly my wife Jamie - who has been there through it all – I just can’t thank them enough for all the love and support they’ve given me.” There is no doubting Tom Logan will be missed by Port Adelaide, and remembered fondly by its faithful supporter base. As much as his old teammates will cherish and learn from his example; and while the coaches loved the leadership he brought each day, the one thing supporters will remember is the hard stuff. The blood, the grimaces of pain, those small, intangible badges of honour. That’s what Port people remember. That’s why they love Tom Logan.

A LITTLE NIPPY IN THE

HALL OF FAME MATTHEW AGIUS


NOT EVERYTHING IN THIS WORLD IS BLACK AND WHITE, BUT TIM GINEVER’S CHAMPION STATUS IS...

I

N THE EYES OF THE PORT ADELAIDE LEGION, TIM GINEVER IS A LEGEND.

But this individual recognition is one Ginever recognises is only be achievable through team success.

That cheeky grin, the larrikin demeanour, Ginever is surely the happiest Port Adelaide supporter on the planet.

“I must say that it’s a team game, you can’t achieve anything without great teammates, but most importantly without being part of a great club,” Ginever says.

After playing in seven flags and captaining the club, you’d be happy too.

“We’ve been fortunate to play for what I believe is the best club in the whole country.

But the 314-gamer was given something more to smile about midway through 2015 when he was elevated into the South Australian Football Hall of Fame.

“For me, it is an individual honour, so you must reflect on how you got it, and the answer to that is because of the teammates you have, and the club you play for.”

About time too, many thought. Ginever has given so much to South Australian football, let alone its most successful club.

Born in Australia to an English father and South American mother, Ginever and his siblings found Australian Football to be the key to easing their transition to life in Australia.

Remarkably, it was a story that may not have been. Injuries beset his early career, but he overcame those early barriers to become of the core members of a Port Adelaide dynasty that scored seven premierships from 1988 to 1996. It was a unique time to be part of Port Adelaide. Premierships were the expectation – the norm for the club – but there was extra reason to be successful now. It wasn’t just about the glory of winning, there were now practical realities - Port needed to win flags to justify its admission into the AFL. Through his playing career, Ginever crafted himself into one of SA football’s hardest and most unrelenting competitors on the field; mild mannered in the carpark, he crossed the white line and became a fierce and intense competitor on the turf. Retiring at the end of 1997, he would return to the club as an assistant coach to John Cahill for in the SANFL during 2005 before taking the club’s senior coaching role in four seasons from 2006 to 2009, which included two finals appearances. His induction makes him the 30th man associated with Port Adelaide to be recognised in the SA Football Hall of Fame.

By the time Tim was born, football – and Port Adelaide – was part and parcel of everyday life. As the seventh of 10 children, he was bred for football in those hardest of proving grounds: the backyard. “One of my older brothers was called a ‘Pom’ by other kids, was teased about it, wanted to be an Aussie, so we all got into Australian Rules footy,” Ginever explains. “His mate at school said he had to go for Port Adelaide, so that was it – the club got fed through the family. “Growing up I was playing against my older brothers Nick and Phil in the yard and at school, they all had a particular influence on me playing, and all the family wanted me to get good enough to play for the club. “I always acknowledge their efforts in toughening me up, keeping me humble – forever telling me not to get a big head or they’d pin me down and make sure I didn’t get one!” During the 1980s, Ginever earned the tag ‘Nippy’ for his fast and determined approach to football. He was part of a crop of young players who were blooded by Russell Ebert in Port’s

significant rebuild during the early-tomid-eighties. But it was as a youngster in the Teal Cup that he first learned the value of discipline in training and on the field. “The first bloke to really have an impact on me was Alan Stewart at Teal Cup level. He was exceptional, and taught me the fact you could overachieve if you stayed committed to discipline,” Ginever recalls.

“If you lost, you lost; you’re not good enough, move on; but work hard to make yourself better. “There was a real belief system he put into me, and all of us, and it went a long way towards our success at that time. “Then I finished off with my mate, Stephen Williams, which was a really good captaincoach relationship because we’d been so close as teammates.

“Junior coaches at Port Adelaide like Malcolm Maiden, who came to my door and asked me if I wanted to play for the club, took me out to the pre-season. He was fantastic in those early years, Brian Fairclough and Tony Hobby in the reserves, but then it was Russell Ebert who gave me my opportunity.

“We’d constantly driven each other as teammates on the field.”

“All my mates who came through to eventually win premierships were given our first 50-odd games by Russell.

“I’ve stood some of the toughest opponents, guys like Gary McIntosh, but none of them were harder than my wife, Angela,” Ginever says.

“Russell taught us how hard we had to work to be a league player at Port Adelaide, I really thank him for those early days and those early learnings.” By 1988, Port Adelaide had re-enlisted John Cahill to coach the team, and Ginever would become an integral component, playing in a premiership treble in 1988, 1989 and 1990 and then again in 1992. He took over the traditional No. 1 guernsey of the club’s captain in 1994 and led the club to another three flags with Cahill and Stephen Williams as coaches. It was at this time that Ginever confirmed himself as a true Port Adelaide champion – winning his first A.R. McLean Medal in 1994 and eventually getting a second in his final season of 1997.

Ginever left his final praise - and thanks for his wife, Angela. In his words, she’s the toughest person he knows.

“She’s just been terrific support throughout the years - she backs me in but gee, she’s tough. “She tells me to harden up, stop being a sook, get going, go again. “She’s a real ‘Port Adelaide’ chick.” Ginever remains involved in football as part of Port Adelaide’s corporate operations and as a commentator for FIVEaa and Channel Seven. Other inductees to the SA Football Hall of Fame included SANFL administrator Leigh Whicker, former Sturt and Glenelg player John Paynter, former Rooster and Crow Rodney Maynard and Redlegs-Crow Brett James - grandson of 1930s Port Adelaide player Claude Greening.

“Jack came back on board in the late eighties and taught us that anyone could be beaten, he was an amazing man manager and an incredible influence on me for not making excuses,” Ginever says.

THE HOME GUARD ADRIENNE DAVIES

There is a secret army that guards Port Adelaide each and every day. They are the home guard, responsible for keeping Alberton safe from the scourge of litter, vermin and the multitude of weeds that shoot through the club’s traditional home. They are Dad’s Army...


An observant person walking around Alberton Oval might notice there is no rubbish on the ground.

‘elder’ status – some of the Army’s generals have members approaching the century!

The gardens are well kept, the fences are all intact.

“We take that money and anything we get back from the bottles and cans collected and do something for the club,” says Woodhart.

The people responsible for this? Dad’s Army, a group of retired men who volunteer at the club every week of the season.

“This year we bought an ice machine for the Magpies with that, and we also sponsor a player from the Magpies each year.”

For 25 years they have been cleaning up after Magpies home games, Port Adelaide fan days, and completing any odd jobs, all for the love of their club.

Like any exclusive club, Dad’s Army has a base, secretly located somewhere at Alberton Oval, which is known to house some heated discussions.

One of the founding members of Dad’s Army is Barry Wilson, a former player, board member and chairman of the club in its SANFL days.

“Come over here on a Monday and we’ve solved it all,” Woodhart jokes.

“Back in 1989, the Port Adelaide council was charging $90,000 a year to clean Alberton Oval, which the club budget was struggling with,” Wilson says. “I told the club, ‘I think we have some blokes that will get together and do it for nothing,’ and we just grew from there.” In the early days Barry would go to The Port Club to recruit people, but it didn’t take long before people came to him requesting to join. While Dad’s Army doesn’t have an official president, Barry is the spiritual leader and plays an important role in admitting members to the exclusive club - so long as they meet some specific criteria. “It’s obvious, but the main thing is that you have to be a Port Adelaide person,” he says. “You have to be a retiree, and you have to be willing to roll your sleeves up to do the hard yards.” Outside their weekday jobs tending the grounds, Dad’s Army runs a van at Magpies games with all the money earned going back into the club. Dale Woodhart is the youngest soldier in Dad’s Army. Aged in his fifties, he has a while to reach

“We might have got rid of half the team and the coach but by Friday everyone is forgiven and we go again.” “No other club has got what we’ve got here at Port. We might argue in here on occasions but we are all the same, we are all here for Port Adelaide.” On entrance to their clubhouse, you find yourself walking through the original doors of The Port Club, rescued and given a new home when the licenced venue underwent renovations. It is a treasure trove of memorabilia, with old guernseys and posters lining the walls, as well as headshots of the players Dad’s Army has sponsored over the years. On one side is the kitchen, an area former politician Bob Gregory has made his own after he retired and found he had some spare time to pass.

resident cook in the shed for Dad’s Army and any players or Port staffers who take up their open invitation. Like many other members of this club, Bob has often been asked why he spends so much time doing the hard yards with Dad’s Army, instead of enjoying his retirement. “When you retire, if you want to stay alive and prosper you have to be doing something,” he says. “Some blokes don’t know what to do with themselves and it’s hard when you’re working for 40 or 50 years and then suddenly not. “I volunteer because it is natural to me – I was born in Alberton and am Port Adelaide through and through. “I’m not giving this up, the day I do is the day these guys will be at my funeral.” It is a sentiment which resonates through the ranks of Dad’s Army, Dale agreeing the work they put in is not for nothing. “The club has been pretty successful and how many clubs have made finals like Port Adelaide has? They’ve given us a fair bit of pleasure,” he says. “Some of us have played for the club and while I may not be good enough to play for the club, I can bloody well lift a bin for the club. “In here we are all the same, just mates who come in and do the jobs that need to be done.” Oh, and the name? An obvious reference to the British television comedy.

“I joined in April 1994, after the Maggies’ first home match of the year,” Gregory says.

“The story goes that we just needed a name for the group,” says another member, Bob O’Malley.

“I’d heard about Dad’s Army, turned up that Monday and no one has told me to go home 20 years later.”

“The show used to be about a group of retired men who were too old to go to war, so instead formed part of the home guard.

Bob Gregory has spent the last two decades maintaining the gardens, as well as being the
