It is with great sadness that SANFL acknowledges the passing of SA Football Hall of Fame Member and SANFL Player Life Member Don Gilbourne.
A triple North Adelaide premiership player, Don captained the 1960 premiership side and will be remembered for an illustrious 206-game career with the Roosters which spanned 14 seasons from 1949 to 1962. He also represented SA on 10 occasions.
On behalf of the SA Football Commission Chairman The Hon John Olsen AO, Chief Executive Officer Jake Parkinson, SA Football Commission, SANFL Management and Staff, the League extends its deepest sympathy to the Gilbourne family.
