19 Sep 2019 speech

Ms FLINT (Boothby—Government Whip) (13:34): This Sunday, 22 September 2019, the Glenelg Football Club will take on Port Adelaide in the SANFL grand final at Adelaide Oval. I'd like to congratulate the outgoing president, Nick Chigwidden; the incoming president, Peter Carey; the CEO, Glenn Elliot; the head coach, Mark Stone; and the captain, Chris Curran, on a fantastic season. Securing a place in the grand final tops off a truly impressive year by the club. Glenelg received the Stanley H Lewis Trophy for the best performed club, which is awarded on the combined results across the league, reserves and under-18 teams. Luke Partington won the prestigious SANFL Magarey Medal for his outstanding season, the first Glenelg player in 13 years to do so, as well as the coaches' RO Shearman Medal and Digital Pass Player of the Year—a huge congratulations to Luke on these achievements. Congratulations must also go to Liam McBean and Luke Reynolds, the league's top goal kickers this season, with 46 and 45 goals respectively. What a magnificent effort by Liam and Luke! We hope these incredible achievements will be followed by the club's first premiership win in 33 years this Sunday. I know everyone in our local community, particularly No. 1 Glenelg fan, Mayor Amanda Wilson, and my state colleague Steven Paterson MP, will join me in congratulating players, members and supporters of the Glenelg Footy Club on a tremendous season. We wish them all the very best for the grand final this Sunday. Go, Tigers!
