Aged 30 year and 265 days when he made his debut in Adelaide’s first AFL game, David Marshall is the oldest player to have debuted for the Club. He had 13 seasons and 323 games worth of experience behind him with Glenelg in the SANFL and his transition to the top level was a smooth one. Marshall’s trophy cabinet included two premierships and a best-and-fairest at Glenelg in 1990.

The stylish wingman/centreman played 26 games in two seasons with the Crows and later became a team selector and then a member of the board in 1999 and 2000. He finished his playing career with Glenelg in 1993, when he also captained South Australia’s state league team against Western Australia.
