2015 Hall of Fame Induction Dinner

Friday, June 26, 2015 - 3:24 PM - by James Sansalone

On the 25th of June East Perth proudly inducted five club stalwarts into our Hall of Fame. The selection committee consisting of Jack Clayton, Bill Forrest, Alan East and Laurie Kennedy nominated the inductees to the Board, who ratified the induction of Bert Harrold, Archie Herd, Jim Spencer, Phil Tierney and David Swan.

This special night was celebrated by 150 previous inductees, sponsors and guests as well as 20 current players and the senior coaching staff. On a night of many highlights the stand out moment was Douglas Herd, our oldest living player, accepting his father Archie Herd’s medal. It was a humbling moment for everyone in the room as Douglas spoke of how much the Club has meant to the Herd family since Archie’s debut 100 years ago.

Lower South West Development Day

Friday, June 26, 2015 - 11:46 AM

The Lower South West Junior Football Clinic was held at Bridgetown Football Club on Wednesday 24th June. 180 kids attended between the ages of 9 and 15  all from the Lower South West region.

Local products Marty Zambotto, Matt Seymour (Imperials), Tom Gorter (Kojonup), Clayton Giblett, Tyler Ipsen, Connor De Campo (Deanmill), Zac Dent (Boyup Brook) and Will Young who hails from Augusta Margaret River FC took the young kids through their paces. The budding youngsters were given a taste of what a senior training session is like with the players incorporating a few of the drills that coach Brian Dawson uses at WAFL level.

All of the Royals who attended the day started out playing junior football in regional areas and have progressed through the ranks to now represent East Perth. It's fantastic to see so many of the boys giving back to the football community. The attendance at the clinic is a promising sign of growth and development for the East Perth Footbal Club.

A big thankyou to the Bridgetown FC for their excellent hospitality and to the Lower South West Junior Football League for organising the event. 

A win's a win!

Despite the dismal weather conditions and sub-par performance on Saturday afternoon, East Perth were able to get the job done 94 to 73 over the East Fremantle Sharks. The Royals have played much better football than they showcased on the weekend, however it was a massive turn around from their 55-point defeat to the Sharks in round 1.

East Fremantle opened the scoring on Saturday with two behinds, but the Royals found their feet and hit back with four goals in as many minutes. Hutchings and Newman were fantastic in helping East Perth take a commanding 23-point lead at the first break.

Sundowner Success

Friday, June 19, 2015 - 12:56 PM

Thank you to Kevin Sheedy and everyone who attended the Sundowner event hosted by Simon Beaumont on the eve of the West Coast v Essendon game (who could forget Sheedy's jacket waving in the face of a rabid crowd at Subiaco Oval!)

 It was a great opportunity for football fans to hear some inside tales from one of the game's pioneers. Well done to the lucky punters who were presented with their winning auction items by Brownlow Medallist Ross Glendinning. The geenroisty of those who attended helped raise over $6,000 for the club and The Sheedy Foundation.

Men's Health Week

Friday, June 19, 2015 - 12:29 PM

KNOW YOUR SCORE!

As part of Men's Health Week, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) have teamed up with the WAFL to encourage men to talk to their doctor about their individual risk of developing prostate cancer.

There will be plenty of activities happening for Round 13 so make sure you're at Medibank Stadium, and make sure you give generously. 

• Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer in Australian men 
• Every day 9 Australian men die from this disease
• More men now die of prostate cancer than women die of breast cancer.
• In WA, around 3,000 men are diagnosed each year, and almost 300 will lose their lives to this disease.

Thunder Reign over Royals

Friday, June 19, 2015 - 12:09 PM - by Jake Smith

It was a quality contest between Peel and East Perth at Bendigo Bank Stadium, but it was the home team who claimed the four competition points to advance to third on the ladder.

East Perth powered out to a 22-point lead to take the advantage at the end of the first quarter, but that 22-point margin ended up in Peel’s favour as the final siren rang. It was a similar state of affairs in round 5 when Peel got the better of East Perth by 23 points, but this time they didn’t do it so easily.

The Royals were sharp and aggressive around the stoppages with some great speed shown by Freddie Clutterbuck and Matt Rosa. They jumped to an early lead at the end of the first break, but Peel responded with four goals from six consecutive shots to open the second quarter. Peel’s big men outplayed East Perth to help snatch the lead at half time by just three points.

Royals Rally to Defeat Swans

Friday, June 12, 2015 - 11:07 AM - by Jake Smith

The battle between the Royals and the Swans attracted a 4000-strong crowd to Steel Blue Oval for what was arguably the game of the round. In a tightly contested match, East Perth trailed by three goals at the end of the first term before bridging the margin to within one goal at the main break. The Royals never panicked and rallied in the third quarter to pinch the lead by five points and then drove it home in the final term booting three straight goals to record a 17-point victory.
