Biography

Peter Caven was one of the Adelaide Football Club’s most successful recruits, playing in both the 1997 and 1998 premiership sides. Caven started his AFL career with Fitzroy in 1991 and before switching to Sydney, playing a total of 57 games.

He had a fantastic left foot kick and had the ability to play at either end of the ground, although he made his mark with Adelaide as a key defender. He is best remembered for his influential role against North Melbourne champion forward Wayne Carey in the 1998 grand final. He retired in 2000 after two injury-interrupted seasons.
