'The Digest' contains 380 pages of South Australian country football history, statistics, records and stories. The new book features over 100 team photographs, more than 50 player profiles and the histories of more than 150 South Australian country football leagues and associations.

While the country football theme of my first book 'Encyclopedia of South Australian Football Clubs' remains the 'South Australian Country Football Digest' will contain more on the individuals in country football from the players through to administrators and umpires.

The Digest is written in three sections -:

Section I -: Is a brief history of every association and league that has ever been formed. Each member club is mentioned with their colours and home ground together with the names of a few of their key players.

Section II -: Is a country football records section which features lists of most games played, most goals scored (career, year and match), most years as coach, captain and lists on many more topics. Long serving administrators at league and club level are listed and there is even a list on who has the largest football oval. There also club records for highest scores, most premierships, premiership droughts and interclub rivalries.

Section III -: Contains lists of every country bred footballer who had a career in SANFL or AFL/VFL football. Players are listed under the club they played for with games played, club of origin and years played.

Interspersed throughout the book are more than 50 profiles of footballers, coaches, administrators and umpires. Ken Eustice, Alf Skuse, Kevin McSporran and Jason McKenzie are just a sample of those profiled.

I don't have a price for the book yet as I am yet to receive a quote. So I will begin taking orders when I fix a price and give details on how to obtain a copy.

Thank you
