At 20-years-old Simon Tregenza was the youngest Crow on field when Adelaide played its first AFL game in 1991.
Despite his youth he already had a pair of SANFL premierships to his name and was a two-time Magarey Medal runner-up. The hard-running wingman played junior football for Glenelg (where he was coached by Crows teammates Chris McDermott and Tony McGuinness) but switched to Port Adelaide after being invited to training by Russell Ebert.
He was a top-10 finisher in Adelaide’s Club Champion award during his first few years of footy, with a career-best third-place finish in 1995. His promising career was impacted by knee and soft tissue injuries which restricted his game time in his last few seasons. A knee reconstruction in 1996 saw him miss both Adelaide’s premierships and he bowed out of the AFL after the 1999 season. There was some success, however, as he won back-to-back premierships with Port in the SANFL in 1998-1999.
