North Adelaide



"Prominent players for North during the 1920s included Tom Leahy, nicknamed ‘the prince of ruckmen’, Percy Lewis, Percy Furler, Albert Fooks, Cec Curnow and Darby Crawford. Wishing no disrespect to any of these individuals, however, a player was to make his debut in 1929 who was to go on to outshine them all; indeed, in the entire history of South Australian football it is doubtful whether there has been a more highly celebrated figure. Ken Farmer - later to be popularly referred to, in South Australia at any rate, as ‘football’s Bradman’ - kicked 62 goals in 1929, a highly respectable total for the time, but, by the standards which he was shortly to establish, a comparatively modest one..."
