An update from the WA Football Commission Chairman

Wednesday, June 10, 2020 - 7:46 PM

I’d like to directly address with you the leak of WAFC salaries earlier this week. At the best of times this is a highly sensitive topic and I fully understand in the current environment sensitivities are at an all-time high. From my perspective this is a deeply regrettable situation and I apologise for the angst it has no doubt caused, particularly for our staff. A full independent investigation is being undertaken on this issue.
 
There are a couple of points I’d like to specifically address. Firstly, at a headline level, I know the total amount paid in salaries looks like a substantial number but I would ask that you remember it takes a significant number of people to deliver outcomes such as talent academies, competitions, umpiring, indigenous engagement, coaching and school programs across all levels of footy in WA.

Swans coach looks at positives for 2020 WAFL season

Wednesday, June 3, 2020 - 9:14 AM - by Chris Pike

SWAN Districts coach Adam Pickering is excited to have a start date for the WAFL season to now work towards and is looking forward to a potentially more attractive brand of football with the shorter quarters.

The 2020 WAFL season will now commence on Saturday August 1 having been delayed due to the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic with the later start meaning it will be a nine-team, nine-round competition.

That will see every team play one another once heading into a finals series but the games themselves will be condensed to consisting of 16-minute quarters plus time-on to align with the rules the AFL will be playing under as well in 2020.

Simply Energy Diaries: Zane Trew

Tuesday, June 2, 2020 - 3:14 PM

In a time of great uncertainty around the footballing world, we take you inside the lives of our Western Australian Under 18s as they navigate their way through an unprecedented 2020 season. The positives, the negatives and the new opportunities that present themselves will all be told in the ‘Simply Energy Diaries.’


We are back!

For the first time in a long time, training will feel normal from next week onwards. We have returned to the club in groups of 20, but from Saturday we can tackle and train together. 

August 1 can’t come quick enough…  

Return to Training 

Over the past few weeks at Swans we have been training in groups of 20. It’s obviously been a while since we’ve been back at the club, but it has been great to see the faces you haven’t seen in a while. For me particularly, that’s the league side. We got straight to work in groups, and it was nice to mingle and catch up. 

The one positive in training within smaller groups has been the ability to form better connections with some guys. Getting to know some teammates better that I otherwise might not have. It feels strange though, I haven’t seen half the group yet!

Unlikely partnership

Over the enforced break I developed a pretty close friendship with one of the boys that has come over from Victoria, Frank Anderson. He was at the Northern Blues previously, and he has been awesome for me. We’ve been doing a lot of running in the break. Given we play pretty similar position he will be perfect to learn off as we return to footy. 

I tried to get out as much as I could within the restrictions during the couple of months. Tried to see my mates as best we could and because of that I’ve found it slightly easier to get back to normal. 

I am a pretty self-motivated type of guy. Being able to do stuff alone like weights and running hasn’t really phased me, but I have missed the team environment that football brings.

Season date & looking to the future

To have a date locked in to start the WAFL season certainly has a lot of the boys excited. It gives players something to look forward to but also something to strive towards. Beforehand, we had no idea of when footy would return but to be able to have some form of routine back is great. It gives us plenty of time to put the work in and be fully prepared for 2020. 

The physical and mental side of my game is super important to me over the next eight weeks. I want to be ready to go and it is a great opportunity to get the body really ready. I feel mentally refreshed from the break and to hear that the draft will go ahead has been a welcome relief. 

The academy throughout the whole process has been unreal. Adam Jones and Lee Walker as well as all of the backroom staff they’ve been in contact all of the time. 

Those blokes keep us mentally together and in it – there are super supportive. Couldn’t ask for a better bunch of blokes to run the Academy. 


An update from the West Australian Football Commission

Saturday, May 30, 2020 - 5:04 PM - by Steve Tuohey

Good afternoon,
 
Yesterday’s announcement by the State Government that restrictions will be eased further from next Saturday June 6th to allow contact sport and group gatherings of up to 100 people, is great news for community football in Western Australia as we work towards a full return to play.
 
As a result, the WAFC will be updating its Return to Play Guidelines ahead of next weekend and working with all football competitions across Western Australia to help finalise their return to play dates.  
 
As we prepare to move towards full competition, we will work through a staged and planned approach with our many stakeholders. This will include working with Leagues, Clubs, Umpires and all volunteers to ensure we can effectively plan a safe return to football.
 
Importantly, we will need to work with Local Governments across WA to confirm venue availability and access conditions ahead of any return dates being set, whilst also working on fixtures, bylaws and player registrations.  
 
With this in mind, it is acknowledged that football competitions across WA may recommence on different dates and that not all will be ready to resume in line with Government restrictions being eased on June 6th.    
 
This date provides a starting point for a return to play, and also provides the date from which full contact training can occur. This is an exciting outcome made possible by the terrific work of everyone in our community to follow the rules and demonstrate that we are committed to stopping the spread of Covid-19.
 
We will continue to engage with the State on the next steps and timing for the increase of spectators, as we appreciate that spectators play such an important role in supporting the financial viability of our clubs right across WA.
 
Over the next week, it is important that all clubs continue following current State Government restrictions and WAFC Return to Training Protocols, which includes the 10-point checklist. Training must also continue to be non-contact under current guidelines.
 
On behalf of the WA Football Commission, we’d like to thank you for your efforts to date and ongoing patience, support and understanding as we continue working towards a safe return to play.
 
Due to the significant financial impact of Covid-19 on our organisation the WAFC will continue to operate with a reduced workforce, with those staff placed on stand-down or reduced hours to remain until July 31st.
 
Thankfully, these employees have been eligible to receive the JobKeeper payment while the WAFC has continued its core business with reduced operational requirements.
 
This has been an extremely challenging period for our team who have given so much to our great game. Thanks for your patience and understanding that our staff’s response times may be a little bit slower during this period.
 
Outlined below are the key contacts that will remain in place until July 31st and be responsible for WAFC projects, football operations and assisting with COVID-19 challenges and issues. We would also encourage you to click here for the latest WAFC updates and information on COVID-19 and the return to football in 2020.
 
Thanks for your ongoing support of WA Football and the role you are playing in the health and wellbeing of our community.

Our brightest stars: East Fremantle District

Friday, May 29, 2020 - 10:19 AM - by Lenny Fogliani

Western Australia has a proud history of developing elite football talent, with many of the game’s brightest stars beginning their careers at local junior football clubs right across the State.

In a series of articles highlighting the rich talent pool in WA over the years, Lenny Fogliani takes a closer look at the best current and former WAFL and AFL players to emerge from junior clubs in WA’s regions and districts.

This article focusses on junior clubs in East Fremantle Football Club's metropolitan district.

A host of prominent WAFL and AFL footballers have come from the East Fremantle District. Below are some of the more notable players who have originated from this particular district.

EAST FREMANTLE METRO DISTRICT

The East Fremantle District has a rich history of producing outstanding WAFL and AFL talent.

Within the East Fremantle metropolitan District, there are currently fifteen Junior Clubs – Applecross-Mount Pleasant JFC, Attadale JFC, Booragoon JFC, Bullcreek-Leeming JFC, Canning Vale JFC, East Fremantle Power JFC, Forrestdale JFC, Melville JFC, Palmyra JFC, Piara Waters JFC, Riverton JFC, Rossmoyne JFC, Rostrata JFC, Willetton JFC and Winnacott JFC.

Below are some of the notable players to have come from the East Fremantle District.

NEIL BALME – APPLECROSS–MOUNT PLEASANT JFC

The brother of former Richmond players Ian and Craig, Neil Balme has put together a fantastic career in football. He played a total of 176 games across 14 seasons (159 games with Richmond, 13 with Norwood, and 4 with Subiaco). He was a member of Richmond’s 1969 U19s Premiership team and was also a key member of the Tigers’ senior premierships in 1973 (12 possessions, 5 marks and 2 goals) and 1974 (11 possessions and 2 goals). After his playing career, Balme went on to become an outstanding senior coach. Between 1980 and 1990, he coached 270 games at Norwood in the SANFL where he led them to two premierships in 1982 and 1984. In 1991, he became the inaugural coach of Woodville-West Torrens, and in 1993 he became the Senior Coach of Melbourne. After leaving the Demons in 1997, Balme went on to make a name for himself as an excellent football administrator. He was Collingwood’s Football Operations Manager between 1998 and 2006. He was Geelong’s Football Operations Manager during their golden reign from 2007 to 2013. Between 2014 and 2016, he went back to Collingwood where he served as the Club’s Director of Coaching. At the end of 2016, Balme became the General Manager of Football at Richmond, where he is presiding over their current golden reign.

BRAD SHEPPARD – ATTADALE JFC

The cousin of Australian cricketers Shaun and Mitch Marsh, Sheppard has become one of the best general defenders in the AFL – rated ninth best in this role prior to the 2020 AFL season. Across 11 seasons, Sheppard has played 179 games and currently averages 16 possessions and 5 marks. He has five top-ten placings in a Best and Fairest count (2015: 6th, 2016: 9th, 2017: 10th, 2018: 8th, 2019: 3rd). He has a reputation for being a big-game player, highlighted by his 2015 Player of the Finals Award and 2019 Glendinning-Allan Medal. He represented the All Stars in the 2020 State of Origin for Bushfire Relief Match.

SIMON BLACK – BULLCREEK–LEEMING JFC

A member of Brisbane’s “Fab Four,” Black was one of the premier midfielders of the modern era. He has played the most games ever by a Brisbane Lion with 322 games across 16 seasons. He was a key member of the Lions’ premiership three-peat between 2001 and 2003, highlighted by his 2003 Norm Smith Medal performance against Collingwood (39 possessions – 25 contested – 9 tackles, 9 clearances, 7 inside 50s and a goal). He won the Brownlow Medal in 2002 after he averaged 23 possessions (12 contested), 6 clearances, 5 inside 50s and 5 tackles. He had a further seven top-ten placings in the Brownlow (2001: 9th, 2003: 9th, 2004: 5th, 2006: 10th, 2007: 2nd, 2008: 2nd, 2009: 4th). He also won three Best and Fairest Awards (2001, 2002, 2006) and three All-Australian guernseys (2001, 2002, 2004). He is one of only two players, along with Geelong’s Jimmy Bartel, to have played over 300 games, won a Brownlow Medal and won a Norm Smith Medal.

LUKE MCPHARLIN – BULLCREEK–LEEMING JFC

Nicknamed “Woosh,” McPharlin is arguably Fremantle’s greatest defender. He played 244 games for the Dockers (fourth-most by a Docker) and also kicked 112 goals across 14 seasons. He had six top-ten placings in the Best and Fairest (2006: 7th, 2007: 3rd, 2008: 3rd, 2011: 4th, 2012: 5th, 2015: 10th), won All-Australian selection in 2012 (full-back), won Fremantle Life Membership in 2010, was named centre-half back in Fremantle’s 25 since 95 team, and won the 2005 Alex Jesaulenko Mark of the Year for his spectacular flying chest mark against West Coast. Prior to Fremantle, McPharlin played 12 games for Hawthorn between 2000 and 2001.

SHANE WOEWODIN – BULLCREEK–LEEMING JFC

Of Ukrainian heritage, Woewodin was a star for both Melbourne and Collingwood. In total he played 200 AFL games (138 with Melbourne and 62 with Collingwood) across nine seasons. He is best remembered for winning the 2000 Brownlow Medal, ahead of the Western Bulldogs’ Scott West, becoming just the third Melbourne player to win the Brownlow. In 2000, he also won Melbourne’s Best and Fairest after he kicked 20 goals and averaged 22 possessions, 5 inside 50s, 5 clearances and 4 marks across 25 games. Despite Melbourne losing to Essendon in the 2000 AFL Grand Final, Woewodin was one of the Demons’ better players with 20 possessions and 6 inside 50s. After his playing career, Woewodin was appointed the Senior Coach of East Fremantle, and then became the Offensive Skills Coach of the Brisbane Lions and later was Head Coach of the Lions’ NEAFL team.

DANIEL KERR – MELVILLE JFC

The son of former East Fremantle and Port Adelaide player Roger Kerr, Daniel was a hard-running inside midfielder who played 220 AFL games across 13 seasons for the West Coast Eagles. His 220 games place him fifteenth for most games played by an Eagle, and his 122 goals place him twentieth for most goals kicked by an Eagle. Throughout his career, Kerr was in five top-five finishes in his Club’s Best and Fairest (2001: 5th, 2002: 2nd, 2003: 4th, 2004: 5th, 2007: 5th), had three top-three placings in the Brownlow (2005: 2nd, 2006: 3rd, 2007: 2nd), won All-Australian selection in 2007 (ruck-rover), represented the Dream Team in the 2008 Hall of Fame Tribute Match, represented Australia in the 2002 International Rules Series, won the 2001 AFLPA Best First Year Player Award and finished second in the 2001 NAB AFL Rising Star Award. He was also a key player in West Coast’s 2006 Grand Final triumph over Sydney with 20 possessions (11 contested), 6 clearances, 5 tackles and 4 inside 50s.

ANDREW SWALLOW – ROSSMOYNE JFC

The older brother of Gold Coast’s David, Andrew Swallow was an inspiring midfielder for North Melbourne between 2006 and 2017. Across 12 seasons, Swallow played 224 games (16th most by a Kangaroo) and averaged 21 possessions (11 contested), 7 tackles and 5 clearances. He was the North Melbourne Captain between 2012 and 2016, in which he captained 89 games, 60 of which were victories. He won three Best and Fairest Awards (2009, 2011, 2012) and had a further four top-ten Best and Fairest placings (2010: 2nd, 2013: 8th, 2015: 5th, 2016: 9th). In 2011, he represented Australia in the International Rules Series, and in 2008 he was a member of the North Ballarat Roosters’ VFL Premiership team. He also had four top-fifteen placings in the Brownlow (2010: 12th, 2011: 10th, 2012: 12th, 2013: 12th). He is currently an Assistant Coach with Gold Coast’s AFLW team.

JASON JOHANNISEN – WILLETTON JFC

Born in Johannesburg, Johannisen has quickly become a fan favourite of the Western Bulldogs. He is best known for winning the Norm Smith Medal after a stellar performance in the 2016 Grand Final that saw him finish with 33 possessions, 9 inside 50s, 7 rebounding 50s and 7 marks. In his career to date, Johannisen has five top-ten placings in a Best and Fairest count (2015: 6th, 2016: 10th, 107: 2nd, 108: 7th, 2019: 4th), won the 2015 Tony Liberatore Most Improved Award and was also a key member of the Western Bulldogs’ 2014 VFL premiership. Prior to this season, he was rated as the Western Bulldogs’ sixth best player and second-best general defender.
