Only player to have played in four decades of football in SANFL (1969 - 1990). A total of 382 games and 460 goals for Woodville and Glenelg 1969 – 1990, second only to Peter Carey.

Sewer transferred to Glenelg from Woodville seeking Finals success. His was a test case for the recently instituted SANFL Permit Tribunal points system, which assigned values attributed to age, years of service, games played, State team representation, the winning of club awards, plus a number of intangibles. Perhaps not surprisingly given Sewer's career to that point, the transfer fee set was an astonishing $50,000.
