After serving in the Royal Australian Navy during the Second World War, Paul Kennett commenced his career with West Torrens. His career blossomed though when he transferred to North Adelaide in 1948. He proceeded to play 114 games for the Roosters, scoring 113 goals before retiring in 1954. Incredibly he played his first 111 games in succession.

A clever half forward, one of Kennett’s finest games was in North’s 1952 Grand Final. Paul scored four goals in North’s 108 point victory, a margin that remained a record for over 50 years. Paul had also played in North’s 1949 Grand Final victory against West Torrens. Ironically he was one of four former Torrens players who represented North in that premiership.

Son Michael played league football with both Sturt and South Adelaide and grandson Toby played for Sturt as well as being listed for a time with the Adelaide Crows.

A dual North Adelaide premiership player, Paul Kennett, passed away at 81 years of age in September 2006.

The North Adelaide Football Club acknowledges Paul’s fine contribution to the Club and salutes one of its premiership heroes.
