Football great Malcolm Blight honoured with bronze statue at Adelaide Oval
Updated August 21, 2015 13:20:47 Malcolm Blight statue unveiled at Adelaide Oval Photo: Malcolm Blight speaks at the unveiling of a bronze statue in his honour at Adelaide Oval. (ABC News: Peter Goers) A bronze statue of South Australian football legend Malcolm Blight has been unveiled at Adelaide Ovaloutside the Victor Richardson gates. Blight, who transitioned from prolific goal kicker to successful coach said he was surprised by the honour. Much loved by South Australians for leading the Adelaide Crows to back-to-back premierships, Blight is the only player to kick 100 goals in a season in both the VFL and SANL. "It's actually difficult to describe, to be honest," he said about the statue. "The first emotion when I heard about the sculpture was surprise and the second was that my football life flashed before my eyes a little."

He won two premierships with North Melbourne and won the 1978 Brownlow Medal before returning to Woodville to play and coach.

Malcolm Blight
Malcolm Blight is as famous for his mercurial nature as he is for his footy and his coaching. He's been a fixture on the Aussie Rules scene since he began playing for the Woodville FC in the SANFL in the late 1960s. In the 1970s he joined North Melbourne FC and made his mark as a consistently brilliant player, who twice played in a premiership side. He was the first player to win both the Magarey and Brownlow medals, the only player to top both the SANFL and VFL goalkicking lists, and the only player to captain both Victorian and South Australian representative sides. He was also an equally brilliant but also controversial coach, with stints at North Melbourne and Woodville as a player coach, and at Geelong, Adelaide and St Kilda as a senior coach. His career has been marked by success and drama in equal portion, but both friends and enemies revere him as a legend. He is currently a sports commentator on Channel Ten and board member of the new Gold Coast Suns FC.
