A LEGEND. A FAMILY AND THE PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB.
Fos Williams is a legend in South Australian football.
He turned the proud Port Adelaide Football Club into a power in Australian football.
Nine premierships from 16 grand finals from the day the West Adelaide rover arrived at Alberton in 1950 has Williams stand as the patriarch of Port Adelaide and has left the Magpies
unchallenged as the most successful football club in Australia.
The traditions Williams established through his era continue with his sons Mark and Stephen leading the dynasty into the 21st Century.
No man, no family, has had such an enduring influence on a football club extending to the culture of South Australia. Williams made South Australians either love or hate Port Adelaide, but they all admired and respected the man and his club.
So strong is the Port Adelaide empire built by Williams and his family that it became irresistible to the Australian Football League.
Foster Neil Williams rewrote the traditions of the Port Adelaide. Now he tells the story — of a legend, a family and the Port Adelaide Football Club.
