FFSA letter to local residents regarding upgrade of facilities
Monday 4th September, 2017
The South Adelaide Panthers Soccer Club has a proud history and has been part of the local community for 20 years. On behalf of the club we would like to thank you for your support of our great club.
In excess of 342 players participate in soccer each year at the club and demand continues to grow. The growth in numbers is placing pressure on the local facilities and they are in desperate need of an upgrade. The South Adelaide Panthers Soccer Club would like to provide greater opportunities to boys, girls, men and women within the local community; however this can only occur if an investment is made to improve the site.
Together we would like to invite you to attend an information session about future plans for an upgrade at the site. The interactive information session will be held on Wednesday 4th October at 6.30pm at the South Adelaide Panthers home ground, O’Sullivan Beach Sporting Complex.
We look forward to seeing you on the night.

South Adelaide Panthers Football Club
Interview with Club Sponsor Gerry Rowlings
Sponsorship is a vital aspect of keeping a local sporting club running and operating successfully. South Adelaide Panthers are grateful for all sponsors who contribute to ensuring the Club continues to grow and thrive.
Gerry Rowlings, through his business IHK Services (SA) Pty Ltd, is one of the people and businesses the Club thanks deeply.
You may have seen Gerry at Panther Park over the years and been unsure of his role; that is how Gerry likes it, he wants it that way.
Gerry, who moved to Australia in 1970 from England, was a part of founding the Port Noarlunga Christies Beach Soccer Club and started playing amateur soccer for them, in fact the Club was the first to come in to the O’Sullivans Beach Sports & Community Centre.
After damaging his collar bone twice in one season, Gerry decided to hang up the boots in time for his son Keith to start playing at Seaford. There, Gerry got involved by coaching U7s up to U16s.
As South Adelaide began to grow and look to launch its first Senior Team, founding member Steve Cox approached Gerry to be involved in Junior football at the Club.
Gerry would attend meetings with his son Keith in tow. Keith listened to what fellow South Adelaide founding member Tony McEntegart had to say, his ideas and how he would like the Club and Senior football to be run. It sounded good to Keith and so he decided to move to South Adelaide, ultimately becoming the first Senior Captain of the Club.
A Life Member at Seaford, Gerry would sponsor South Adelaide but initially asked for it to be kept under wraps as he didn’t want anyone thinking he was taking Seaford players to South. This started a trend for indirect sponsorship between Gerry and South Adelaide.
From employing players when they need some work, to purchasing the Club’s ice machine and coffee machine (which guarantee’s Gerry free coffee’s for life) to covering the cost of match programs and putting money on the bar if the Seniors win (a hefty investment this season), along with his businesses yearly sponsorship, Gerry has continued to work behind the scenes to always assist when he can as the Club requires.
“You can’t take the money with you when you go!” Gerry told. “All I am doing is trying to help to keep things going.
“With this Club, I have never taken on a role with them, never sat on committees, what I do doesn’t give me any say, I don’t have any agenda.”
Until last year, Gerry could be seen out supporting all 3 grades on Game Day. Spending time with his wife who was recently unwell took priority but he has started getting back out to Reserve and Senior games and tells that he is enjoying where things are heading.
“The really good thing I like in this Club this year is the diversity in the Senior team,” he said.
“It changes the structure with in the Club a bit; hopefully we can get more of it and develop more home-grown players.”
Gerry notes that being a Southern based club, there aren’t as many big businesses to engage with for sponsorship so he will continue to do what he can.
“I like soccer and the thing about it is it is local, that is important.
“I do a lot of things that people don’t know about, but Phil (Reed) knows that if he has a problem he can give me a ring.
“Someone said to me, ‘I thought you were just a bloke who was here’, and I am – I am just here to help.”
