Pre Season v. West Perth

EAST Perth have started their first competitive scratch match of the 2014 pre-season with a 37-point loss at the hands of West Perth under lights at Medibank Stadium on Friday.

Freddie Clutterbuck kicked the only goal of the night in the opening minutes of the third quarter in the Royals’ 1.5 (11) to 7.6 (48) loss.

The Royals’ blooded their youth with only five members (Brendan Lee, Steven Payne, Jarrad Oakley Nicholls, Paul Johnson and Mitch Fraser) of last year’s losing Grand Final team taking a place in the lineup.

Colts including Tom Hodgson and Tom Shanahan played their first senior game for the Royals as did Reserves regular, Jackson Slater. 

Reigning Bernie Naylor Medallist Josh Smith, co-captain Craig Wulff, defender Kyle Anderson and Dean Cadwallader missed the match. 

League regular Garry Moss, who is still recovering from an ACL injury that kept him sidelined for the better part of 2013, was a Runner in the Reserves match.

The Royals’ take on Swan Districts in a second pre season hit out next Saturday afternoon before season proper against Peel Thunder on March 22.

Football Returns to Medibank

Wednesday, February 26, 2014 - 12:30 AM

FOOTBALL returns to Medibank Stadium this Friday night under lights against West Perth, in the first of two pre season matches leading into the 2014 season proper getting underway.

It’s been more than five months since that day last September when East Perth were defeated on Patersons Stadium by the Falcons. While 2013 wasn’t our year, the disappointment of losing the Grand Final has kept the players motivated over the pre-season to work harder and achieve the ultimate prize in 2014.

Co-Captains Brendan Lee and Craig Wulff are both expected to play and will be hoping for a strong start to 2014 as they attempt to account for last year’s unfinished business. 

The return of Nathan Blee for the first time since 2011 will be a welcome inclusion to the Royals' lineup after two seasons in the AFL System with Port Adelaide.

Meanwhile, West Perth will head into the match missing former captain Jason Salecic, Premiership Simpson Medallist Mark Hutchings (EP) and forward Josh Mellington (Peel). Their team will be lifted, however, by the off season signings of former Geelong and Swan Districts player Matthew Spencer and Seva Martin (Subiaco).

League kicks off at 7:00pm, Reserves at 5:00pm and Colts will play the following day, Saturday March 1, at 9:00am with entry to all games free. 

The Members’ Bar will be open on Friday evening with a range of light meals available from 5:00pm.

You can follow the match online via Facebook and Twitter.


Friday February 28 – v West Perth at Medibank Stadium, Reserves: 5.00pm; League: 7.00pm.

Saturday March 1 – v West Perth at Medibank Stadium, Colts: 9:00am.

Saturday March 8 – v Swan Districts at Steel Blue Oval, League: 2.05pm; Reserves: 11.35am; Colts: 9:05am.

Colts Camp

Friday, February 21, 2014 - 12:27 PM

The Colts Camp for 2014 was held last weekend at Medibank Stadium. A group of 56 players and some coaching staff spent Friday night in the East Perth Members Bar.  Friday night’s activities started with games of lawn bowls and some light hearted fun at the Lake Monger Bowling Club. Dinner was provided by the East Perth Past Players and Officials before the players tried to get an early night before a big day.

The boys were up nice and early at 5.30am for a very tough running and skills session. After breakfast East Perth league captain Craig Wulff spoke to the playing group about Mental Toughness and building a personal trademark. Craig’s presentation was a perfect lead into our Sports Psychologist David Anthony‘s mental toughness workshop. David took the boys for some goal setting to set them up for season 2014.

The players had a long day of meetings about game plans, leadership skills and expectations before they finished the day off with a series of Team Building game with Team Works Development. After a long day of hard work and concentration the boys performed really well and got a lot out the entire camp leading towards the beginning of the season.

Thanks must go to the Loton’s Club and the East Perth Past Players and Officials for their support and helping make the camp possible.
