Glenelg has secured its tenth Stanley H. Lewis Trophy and second in three years as SANFL’s best performed club in 2021.

In the first year points have been awarded for Women’s and U16 matches, the Bays finished with a significant tally of 4125, more than 1000 ahead of runner-up Woodville-West Torrens with 2875.

With their Statewide Super League, Reserves and Under-18 teams finishing minor premier, the Tigers were also fuelled by the success of their Women’s side, which claimed an inaugural SANFLW premiership.

Norwood tallied 2625 to round out the top three, edging out South Adelaide on 2525 in fourth and fifth-placed North Adelaide on 2375.

Glenelg last won the Stanley H. Lewis Trophy in 2019, with other successes coming in 1969, 1973, 1975, 1976, 1981, 1990, 2009 and 2010.

The Trophy, named after past SANFL Chairman Stanley Heathcote Lewis, has been awarded since 1962 to the club which has displayed excellence across all grades of football.

Points are awarded for each win across the minor round, with 100 points allocated for a Men’s and Women’s League victory, 50 points for the Reserves and Under-18s and 25 points for the Under-16s.

In the event of a draw, half of the points allocated for a win in that grade are awarded to each club involved.
