The Register 11 October 1911 – Port Adelaide II Club



Wednesday 11th October 1911
The Register
Premiers of the South Australian Association
This newly formed team of Portland Imperials and Semaphore Central proved to be too great a proposition for the remainder of the clubs in the association. The club won 13 out at the 14 matches during the season, and put up the fine record 144 goals 145 behinds (1,009 points), compared with 33 goals 71 points (263 points). P. Rowen secured the Magarey Medal of the association, and his play was consistently good all the rear. R. Sangster was the chief goal kicker (41 goals) and also secured the highest in the association. H. Soar and C. Anderson were perhaps the best of the other players, though everyone performed well. The most promising junior was J. Robertson and a great future is expected for him. The team was ably captained by J. Lane, and his generalship, together with the unity which existed among the players, was one of the greatest factors in its success.
