Brenton Adcock was a rugged, dashing and highly reliable defender who played 259 games for Sturt between 1962 and 1974, and also earned something of an Australia-wide reputation on the basis of his many excellent performances for South Australia in interstate matches. An All Australian in 1966, Adcock played a total of 20 state games, including appearances at the carnivals of 1966, 1969 and 1972. He played in the back pocket in no fewer than six Sturt premiership teams, with arguably his finest ever performance coming in the 1967 come from behind grand final win over Port Adelaide, when he was most observers’ choice as best afield.
