Jack Foley

The influence and impact Jack left on the game is best illustrated through the introduction of the J.M Foley Cup, which is a trophy presented to the premier Junior State Team. It was first played in 1973. Mr Jack Foley, the donor, has had an enormous influence over the game at State and National level. As a player he has represented South Australia in many carnivals and has won numerous State Titles, both before and after the War.
