Simon Tregenza was the youngest Crow on the field when Adelaide played its first AFL game in March, 1991. But the 20-year-old had already packed plenty into his brief SANFL career, winning two premierships with Port Adelaide, twice finishing runner-up in the Magarey Medal, and representing South Australia.
The hard-running wingman played junior football for Glenelg (under coaches including Chris McDermott and Tony McGuinness) but switched to Port after being invited to training by Russell Ebert. The first Crow to earn a kick in the opening game against Hawthorn, Tregenza had some hamstring problems in the early years at the club but had a couple of top ten finishes in the club champion and then had his best year in 1995, when he finished third.
But his last four years at the club were ruined by knee and soft tissue injuries. He only played two AFL games in 1996 before having a knee reconstruction; missed the 1997-98 finals campaigns; and then didn’t play an AFL match in his final year at the club (1999). In 2005 he was named on the wing in the AFC Team of the Decade 1991-2000.
