Despite looking old enough, even during the early stages of his career, to have fathered many of his fellow players (indeed, towards the end of that career, he gloried in the nickname 'Dad'), James 'Sorry' Tierney possessed formidable talent. He won a Magarey Medal in 1908, and formed a highly effective partnership for a time with Tom Leahy during West Adelaide's rapid emergence as a power in 1908 and 1909. He later played briefly with Leahy at North Adelaide.
