KERLEY, Neil

20/02/1934 - 29/06/2022

Glenelg Football Club is saddened by the passing of South Australian football icon Neil Kerley. A Great of Glenelg, club life member and Hall of Fame inductee, Neil transformed the Tigers from a social club into one of the most respected football clubs in Australia. Captain-coach in 1967-69 for 55 games and club champion in 1967, Neil was the club’s longest-serving coach, guiding it to five grand finals in 10 seasons and to the famous, drought-breaking premiership of 1973. On behalf of the Board, Management, staff and players of Glenelg Football Club, we wish to send our sincere condolences to Barb and family.
