Upon the Club’s entry into the SANFL Second Eighteen’s Competition in 1959, a former West Torrens Football Club League ruckman was appointed Captain.
John Delo, who ran the newsagency in John Street, Salisbury was appointed Captain in that year and won the Club’s inaugural Best & Fairest.
John continued to play with the Club through until 1961.
John was a talented ruckman, and his contribution in those early year was vital to the future of the Central District Football Club.
John retired to Queensland and passed away last week at age 91.
The Club passes its condolences to the family.
