BFC Legacy

WILLIAM HAROLD
OLIVER

Regarded to be the greatest player to ever play at the Berri Football Club, Oliver lead the Demons to take total dominance of the competition between 1920 - 1940. Playing 117 games for Port Adelaide, including becoming the member of four premiership teams, captain of one premiership side and winning dual Best and Fairest. It becomes hard to compare Oliver to other players and best just to honour him as a legend of the game. From the words of York Richardson, Oliver is "the finest all-round exponent of Australian Football in my playing and watching experience".

Clubs Most Successful Captain

STEVE
WADE

The clubs most successful captain. Leading four premiership sides to victory and playing in an overall eight premierships, Wade was successful in more ways then one when it came to strapping on the boots. Winning two Whillas Medals and playing league football for Port Adelaide, Wade was seen as unstoppable and today is still regarded as one the the first and best footballers to pull on the red and blue, and the most successful captain the clubs ever seen.

Greatest Leader of Riverland Football

MALCOM
HILL

Leading the Demons to three consecutive premierships in 1966,

1967 and 1968 after the Demons 11 year drought. However, Hill's football career did not contain between the walls of the Riverland. Hill went on to play in the VFL for Hawthorn, taking home the 1961 premiership. After retiring, Hill came back to Berri to coach in the 1970's and won another premiership in 1975. Hill's contribution to the Football and Cricket played in the Riverland saw him win Riverland Sportsperson of the year. Malcom is only one of three footballers who have won the award.
