1920 - 1929
AUFC 1920-1929 - AN ERA OF SUPREMACY
The years 1920-1929 can be considered as some of the most successful in the Club's history with the Al team competing in the Finals every year, winning Premierships in 1920, 1921, 1922, 1926 and 1929 and finishing runners-up twice and third three times.
During this time the 'B' side also took Premierships in the Adelaide Students' Association in 1920, 1922 and 1924.
The 1922 season was the most successful during this period, with both the 'A' and 'B' sides winning Premierships, the Adelaide side defeating Melbourne in the Inter-Varsity match for only the second time ever, and H.G Prest winning the Naylor Medal.
1923 saw the formation of the Club's third side competing in the Students' Grade and although it was not an immediate success, the future strength of the Club was assured. Other highlights in this period were the effort of W.R. James to be the first full forward to kick over one hundred goals in Amateur League in 1927, the beginning of the Gunning Medal for the 'A' grade best and fairest also in that year, the formation of the A2 grade in Amateur League in 1928, and the Hone Medal awarded to C.B. Sangster in 1929.
