South Football Club star Jordan Johns brings up his 100th league game this weekend against West.

Johns made his League debut in 2006 at the age of 15 and says that he has “never” thought of playing for any other club in town.

The Johns family is synonymous with Broken Hill sport in the South. Jordan is the son of Peter Johns, a South FC legend who played over 300 games and nephew of Mark and Raymond who were both incredibly talented cricketers for South CC.

Jordan is a three-time best and fairest winner for the Roos as well as winning three Mail Medals as voted by the Broken Hill umpires.

Johns was listed by Port Adelaide as a rookie in the AFL and has also played in South Australia, playing for South Adelaide in the SANFL and Flagstaff Hill in the Southern League, where Johns also won a best and fairest.

He states that his proudest moment in South colours was winning the 2014 premiership.
