David Shipway AM
The West Adelaide Football Club congratulates long-serving SA Football Commissioner David Shipway on being awarded an AM in the 2017 Queen’s Birthday Honours List for significant service to Australian Football in South Australia, and as a supporter of youth, charitable and medical research organisations.
Not only has David been instrumental in the community football scene but is a huge contributor to the success of the West Adelaide Football Club. Shippy has been a long time sponsor of the club, will help out with any request asked of him, even doing some hosting of our pre match lunches as of late. Well done David!
