Royals Sign Super 6

Friday, November 11, 2016 - 11:20 AM

It’s been a big week off field at the Royals. Six key players to our 2017 ambitions and beyond have signed new contracts to remain at the East Perth Football Club.

The club is pleased to announce that last year’s Co-Captain Kyle Anderson has signed with the club for a further two years. He will be joined in 2017 by senior player Nathan Blee, young Royals on the rise Callum Hart and Julian Ameduri, 2-time Eric Smith medallist Tom Hodgson and Asher Samelko have also committed to the club in a major boost for the Royals chances in 2017.

After an injury plagued 2016 Kyle Anderson will be keen to re-join the main group and lead from the front. One of the best backmen in the WAFL competition, Andersons leadership as well as his innate ability to win contests and neutralise oppositions attacks will be pivotal to the Royals success in 2017. 

The signing of Nathan Blee is another big boost for the club. Blee is a highly talented player having played AFL football for Port Adelaide and being twice in the Top 3 of the FD Book Medal in recent years, he can play on the wing and as a versatile defender and was sought after by several clubs in the off season before recommitting to the Royals this week. 

Emerging senior players and leaders Callum Hart and Julian Ameduri are two players keen to cement a permanent spot in the East Perth League team. Both players have played some very good football at senior level over the last couple of seasons. Being able to produce this level of football consistently will be a key for these two local talents.

Tom Hodgson has won consecutive Reserves Best and Fairest and will be keen to add to his one League game from 2015 this season. A hard and relentless midfielder, everyone is confident that when ‘Hodgy’ gets his chance he will take it with both hands. Tall Asher Samelko is a name Royals supporters will get used to hearing over the coming years. Having taken some incredible marks last season, the club is keen to showcase his athletic abilities in 2017.

Royals Football Operations Manager Mark Winnett said “I am rapt to be able to announce these key player re signings to our members and supporters, all 6 of the above-mentioned players are fantastic role models and highly talented footballers and I look forward to strong seasons from them in 2017” 

“The attitude of our senior playing group has been nothing short of outstanding in the off season, and all senior/key players are now contracted and ready to begin pre-season training with the football club, I also look forward to the development of our exciting colts group from last season when they join the senior squad for their first senior pre-season in the next week”

Senior training starting on the 21st of November. Membership for 2017 is now open. Join up today by clicking here, over the phone by calling (08) 9443 2259 or call into the club at 246 Vincent Street in Leederville and show you are ‘Black and Blue, Through and Through’

McGinnity Joins Royals

Friday, October 28, 2016 - 1:11 PM

Patrick McGinnity will remain a Royal in 2017 and beyond, signing a 3-year contract with East Perth. 

The former West Coast listed player has become a fan favourite over his past 3 years at East Perth. Many Loyal Royals will remember Patricks dad, Kevin who played 59 games for the Royals throughout the 70’s.

Originating from the Marist Football Club, Patrick was picked by West Coast in the 2008 Pre-Season Draft after being selected in the 2007 Under 18 All Australian Team.

‘Ginna’ made his debut for the Eagles in 2009 and played 93 games for the club. Pat gained respect from opponents, fans and team mates for his tenacity on a contest and work ethic to get the best out of himself.

McGinnity played 15 games for the Royals this year winning the inaugural Jeremy Silcock Trademark Award along with rising Royal Tom Hodgson. This award is voted on by the players for which player best displays the team values and ethics for that week. It is this level of commitment to the club and his team mates that made getting Pat’s signature a priority.

‘I am extremely pleased to announce that Pat has agreed to join the football club on a 3-year contract’ Football Operations Manager Mark Winnett said. “Pat is a high-quality person and footballer and someone who displays outstanding leadership and we were obviously very keen to keep around the club. The way he has been embraced the playing group, coaches and supporters is a credit to him and clear indication that he is a perfect fit for our young, talented squad”

McGinnity’s signing follows on from last Friday’s signing of Steven Payne. These two senior players join FD Book Medallist Mitch Fraser and Jarrad Oakley-Nicholls as key players committed to the Royals in 2017.

Payne Signs On

Friday, October 21, 2016 - 3:29 PM

2014 FD Book Medallist Steven Payne has signed on for 2017. The athletic wingman from Margaret River joins 2016 FD Book Medallist Mitch Fraser and Jarrad Oakley-Nicholls as the Royals earliest signings for the 2017 season.

After an injury plagued season Payne will be looking to regain the form that won him the Best and Fairest award in a season where the Royals were Minor Premiers and made the Grand Final. 

Football Operations Manager Mark Winnett said 'The club is really pleased that Steven has committed to the club for the 2017 season. After battling with an ankle injury in the second half of the season, we look forward to getting Payney back to his best.'

Stay tuned for more signings and updates
