East Perth Corporate Golf Day

Thursday, April 16, 2015 - 9:40 AM

Tuesday the 14th of April saw the East Perth Football Club hold our annual Corporate Golf Day at the pristine Joondalup Resort Golf Course. After a week of wind and rain, any concerns about bad weather quickly dissipated on arrival with all 100 players being greeted with perfect golfing conditions.

The day was won by the combined team of Subaru Wangara and Nuford lead by Graham Mitchell and Cameron Hede, in a team that included former East Perth Player and current Reserves Coach Adam Pickering. Up and coming Royal, Trent Bradshaw showed he hits a long ball by winning the longest drive competition.

The fun continued into the night with MC, Russell Wolfe providing some very funny East Perth anecdotes over a buffet dinner. Auctioneer, Jay McDonald aided the club in raising over $22,000 in the auction with some fantastic items donated by Geoff Kendrick, Chris Taylor and our friends at Fraser’s, The West Australian, Travel and Sports Australia, hit!92.9 and the West Coast Eagles.

A big thanks goes out to Fiona, Matt and the team at Joondalup Resort for putting on a great day. The Golf Day is one of our major fundraisers and in addition to the auction, the club, through the generosity of our corporate partners was able to raise over $45,000 to go towards the continued improvement of facilities and to funding club resources to develop our city and country zones.

Craig Wulff set to play his 250th WAFL game

Wednesday, April 15, 2015 - 5:15 PM - by Jake Smith

Our round five clash against Peel Thunder is shaping up to be a belter with both teams looking to secure their third win for the season and the ‘loyal royal’, Craig Wulff appearing in his 250th game for the mighty black and blue. The Royals will head into the match with fresh legs and plenty of rest after a bye week. The return of injured ruckman, Paul Johnson will add impact as will Wulff’s zeal to perform in his milestone match.

Wulff debuted for the Royals in 2002 as a nineteen year old and has been a pivotal player in the East Perth outfit for over a decade. He won the clubs best and fairest honour in 2010 and was runner up in 2009 and 2012. He has represented his State including captaincy of the WAFL side in 2012 and he also co-captained the Royals to two Grand Final appearances in 2013 and 2014. The life member of the club will be making his own luck on Saturday, wearing his infamous No.13 jersey in front of a huge crowd anticipated for Saturday’s clash at Medibank stadium.

Peel Thunder’s Colts and Reserves sides will both be looking to score their first win of the season with a less than impressive start to the 2015 fixture. Meanwhile, East Perth’s Colts are chasing back to back wins and our Reserves will be seeking redemption this weekend after their loss to Subiaco in round three.

East Perth have won 80% of head-to-head matches against Peel Thunder and they show no signs of letting this statistic slip. Colts kick off at 8:25am, Reserves 10:55am and first grade will play at 1:40pm.

Royals Reign At Medibank

Tuesday, April 7, 2015 - 9:13 AM

East Perth sent a message to the competition with a thumping win in its Good Friday match against an in form Subiaco, 115-51. The Lions went into the game red-hot favourites with two impressive wins in the opening two rounds against Claremont and East Fremantle. The Royals also went into the clash without influential big man Paul Johnson.

The win was set up with a ten goal to three first half. Murray Newman was dangerous up forward showing class and finishing with four goals. The newest Royals 'Swing Man' Jarrad Oakley-Nicholls continued his impressive start to the year, this match as the second ruckman with 16 touches, 4 marks and 14 hit outs despite his opponents having a considerable size advantage. Jarrad has been given 3 different roles in the first 3 games. East Perth product Agid Gardoud provided the highlight of the match kicking his first goal in his first senior match.

The Royals won every quarter in the dominant display. Brant Colledge showed his potential as a match winner amassing 36 touches, including 3 goals, whilst also having 9 marks and 8 tackles. Fraser McInnes continued to push for higher honours with 22 touches, 32 hit outs and a goal to be the dominant big man on the ground.

Down back it was again Vice-Captain Kyle Anderson who lead from the front to not allow the Lions to kick more than 2 goals in any quarter. Mitch Fraser worked tirelessly as well, collecting 28 touches and 10 marks providing plenty of rebound out of the last line of defense.

Earlier in the day the Colts chalked up their first win of the season with a solid win. After a slow start in the opening 2 matches the boys came out firing with a 6 goal to 1 opening quarter. Ben Miller and Stan Wright were ball magnets with 27 and 29 touches respectively whilst Tahir Bayok was dominant up forward with 9 marks and 3 goals.

In the Reserves a poor 3rd quarter cost the Royals. Subi Reserves only lost 1 game in the 2014 home and away season and showed they are again the side to beat. There were some encouraging signs for the Royals however. Damian Lee showed his talent with a game high 35 possessions, whilst Mitch Howlett showed his defensive pressure with 12 tackles.

East Perth has a bye this weekend in all grades. The boys face Peel Thunder at Medibank Stadium on the 18th of April.

Rd 3 Good Friday Clash vs Subiaco

Friday, April 3, 2015 - 10:48 AM

The Good Friday, Grand Final rematch is shaping up as a mouth-watering game of WAFL football. Subiaco will go into the clash the form side of the WAFL after convincing wins against Top 5 contenders Claremont and East Fremantle. The Mighty Royals bounced back after a poor showing in Round 1 to defeat a fast finishing Swan Districts line up.

The Royals will be strengthened by the return of Captain Brendan Lee. The prolific ball winner will add experience to the talented Royals midfield.

A lack of goals hurt the Royals in Round 1, but with 10 individual goal kickers against the Swans, East Perth showed that there are plenty of avenues to goals.

The Reserves will be keen to make it 3 from 3 before the bye. Whilst it is a young Reserves side it is packed with talent looking to force their way into the League team. The most impressive element of the Reserves first two matches is their dominance of possession.

Our Colts will be looking to chalk up their first win of the season. The boys have been competitive for large periods of their opening games but slow starts have cost them.

Royals Notch Up First Win

Tuesday, March 31, 2015 - 9:10 AM

East Perth notched up their first win of the McDonalds 2015 WAFL Premiership Season holding off a fast finishing Swan Districts 16.13. 109 to 15.6. 96.

The Royals lead at every change and lead by 46 at 3/4 time. The Swans came out of the huddle all cylinders firing with 3 goals in 5 minutes and winning the last quarter 7 goals to 2.

It was a true show of character by the Royals to hold on after the loss of Paul Johnson (concussion) and Murray Newman (rolled ankle) left the East Perth with a depleted bench for the majority of the 2nd half.

2014 FD Book Medallist Steven Payne was back to his ball winning best with an impressive 31 touches and 11 marks. Josh Hill led the way up forward with 3 goals whilst Brant Colledge and Alec Waterman were important through the midfield. Wingman Freddie Clutterbuck was dangerous providing run and finishing with 2 goals, with Garry Moss collecting 25 touches in his new role off halfback. Liam Duggan continued to show his potential with 15 first half possesions. 

The Reserves continued their impressive start to the season with a comfortable 35-point win. Bolstered by the inclusion of Mitch Howlett (21 disposals and a goal), our young side ran away with the game in the second half. Tom Shanahan was impressive with a game high 27 touches and late inclusion Blake Riley was instrumental with 3 goals.

The Colts were left to rue another slow start suffering a 10-goal loss. Will Young was a stand out with 21 touches and 2 goals. Sam Powell-Pepper continues to show he is a player to watch in the future being named in the best for the 2nd time in only his 2nd game.

This weeks match is against Subiaco on Good Friday at Medibank Stadium. The League game starts at 3.00pm

East Perth vs Swan Districts Round 2

The Royals will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing Round 1 at our home ground Medibank Stadium on Saturday. Four players have been added to an extended squad from last week. Our boys are excited about being on home turf for the first time this year.

Big Paul Johnson was in ominous form last week amasing 43 hitouts in a stand out performance in the loss to East Fremantle. Newly appointed Vice Captain Kyle Anderson was reliable as ever in the back line.

Swans had a strong win against Perth last week in their season opener.

The Reserves will be looking to build on their strong win last week at ATOM Stadium. The young squad was impressive against the traditionally strong East Fremantle outfit. Tom Omedei was in scintilating form collecting a game high 36 disposals. Young ruckman Scott Jones was exciting with 32 hitouts, 9 tackles and a goal. Our boys will be bolstered by the inclusion of ball magnet Mitch Howlett who will be keen to impress after a big off season. 

Kobe Chrisp was best afield against East Fremantle last week in the Colts with 32 disposals as the Colts went down by 5 goals. Sam Powell-Pepper is a player to watch this year. The 16 year old had 20 touches including 3 goals in his first Colts game.
