Pundits previewing the 1969 grand final were confronted by a quandary: which was the real Glenelg?

More to the point, it was exactly the kind of challenge he relished. As a playing coach, he led by inspiration, after the fashion of his great Victorian rival (and friend) Ted Whitten. Glenelg commenced their 1967 campaign with virtually the same group of players who had managed just 3wins from 20 starts the previous year, but almost from the opening bounce of the season it became apparent that there was a difference. Kerleys teams tended to play in a resolute, hard-hitting, full-throated fashion which reflected his own philosophy, and the result in Glenelgs case, as it had been in Souths, was a rapid climb up the premiership ladder. Having already coached both West Adelaide (in 1961) and South Adelaide (in 1964) to premierships - the latter after a wooden spoon the previous year - 'the King' as he was affectionately known was eminently qualified for a job which few would have wanted. At the risk of being over-simplistic, that difference was Kerley.

Between 1935 and 1940 the team finished bottom every year bar one, managing a success rate of just 16.2%. Glenelgs partner during this time was West Adelaide, and it was through the agency of this partnership that Glenelg players managed, in 1942, to contest the clubs second grand final. Glenelg now seemed poised for a sustained period of success, but the clubs fall from grace was to be even more dramatic than its rise. In 1935, the team managed just 1 victory from 17 games, finishing last; it was the most spectacular premiership hangover in SANFL history, and the remaining pre-war years only added to the pain. There was slight improvement in 1941 - 5 wins and sixth position on the ladder - but then the league scaled down for three years, with the eight clubs pairing off according to their geographical locations. This time around, however, Port had revenge, of sorts, as the Port Adelaide-West Torrens combination won by 11 points.

Under Taylor, Glenelg enjoyed its best concerted spell in league company up to that point, finishing second, third, and fifth, before running third again in 1953 under Taylors successor, Pat Hall. Somewhat surprisingly, Reval was replaced as coach by Johnny Taylor in 1950, but the winning habit continued to develop rapidly. Unfortunately, however, although the Glenelg sides of this era proved capable of winning somefinals, the ultimate prize eluded them. The key ingredients of this success were plain to see: with players of the calibre of ruckman Allan Crabb, full forward Colin Churchett, and the Taylor brothers, Johnny and Don, the newly christened Tigers were a match for almost any opponent.

League Clubs

South took advantage of this and kick 3 goals in the first 5 minutes. South Adelaide had the breeze in the final term, as we started the quarter with 17 players while other were receiving treatment. For the remainder of the quarter South continued to press, but the boys showed great character to hang on to a close fought win by 2 points. Players were now being challenged right across the ground, with 18 now back on the field the boys worked hard in the contest and gathered their composure to impact the tempo of the game and slow it down.

Two of these men, Sallis and Owens, were team-mates when Glenelg surprised the football world by winning the 1934 premiership. In the end, both Glenelg and Port finished the minor round equal on points, and ahead of all other teams, with the Magpies marginally better percentage securing the minor premiership. The following year saw it overcome a slow start to transform itself into a formidable combination, vying for supremacy for much of the season with perennial powerhouse, Port Adelaide. Prior to 1934, the Seasiders as they were popularly known at the time had never finished above sixth on the ladder, but under the coaching of former West Adelaide champion Bruce McGregor, appointed the previous year, the side had begun to play a tougher, more resolute - and ultimately much more successful - brand of football. In 1933, Glenelg enjoyed what the Americans term a winning season for the first ever time, emerging victorious from 9 of its 17 league fixtures.

The forward line was creating more space and looking more threatening to kick a winnable score. As the conditions fined up throughout the second and third quarters, our pressure around the contest continued and our ball use and efficiency lifted. By mid-way through the final quarter, the margin was out to 40 points. The last 10 minutes saw us go away from the disciplined pressure game we had played for 3 quarters, allowing North Adelaide to kick 3 late goals.

In hindsight, during the course of the next four years there must have been many who came to regard the SAFLs decision as premature. By any objective criteria, it would seem that the club was not ready for the demands of league football. During that time, the Glenelg Football Club blundered its way into the record books in spectacular, unparalleled fashion, losing every one of its first56 league matches contested; indeed, during the entire course of its first ten SAFL seasons, Glenelg never once finished higher than seventh on the ladder, and managed a paltry success rate of just 15.1%.

Although the defection of star players to Victoria was not in itself a new occurrence, the departure of this particular quintet was arguably significant in that all five had made substantial contributions, indicative of genuine commitment and loyalty, to their SANFL clubs before leaving. After the grand final young champions Stephen Kernahan (136 games in five seasons) and Tony McGuinness (112 games, also in five seasons, plus the 1982 Magarey Medal) announced that they would be heading east to the VFL in 1986. They would be joined by other high profile South Australians in the shape of Craig Bradley (Port Adelaide), Peter Motley (Sturt) and John Platten (Central District). In some ways, Glenelgs premiership year of 1985 represented a watershed in the development of football in South Australia. In Kernahans case, the departure had been quite deliberately delayed until he had helped the Tigers win a flag, while Platten would, after leaving, make frequent reference to his long term ambition of eventually returning home to help the Bulldogs do the same.[19] In subsequent seasons, the flood of defecting South Australian players accelerated, and it is at least arguable that few if any regarded their SANFL clubs with quite the same degrees of affection and esteem as had Kernahan, Bradley, Platten, Motley and McGuinness. Certainly by the end of the 1990s the perception of the overwhelming majority of SANFL players was that they were competing in a league which had as its primary raison dtre the nurturing and development of future AFL talent.
