Beau Walks From Hospital

Thursday, December 22, 2016 - 12:58 PM

On behalf of the Chatley Family, the club is delighted to announce that Beau has walked from his ward at Fiona Stanley Hospital to spend Christmas with his family. It was an emotional moment for Beau, his family and the staff at Fiona Stanley.

At Beau’s request, we have respected his privacy to allow him to focus on his recovery.

Intensive therapy from 8.00am to 4.00pm every day has allowed Beau to regain enough strength and coordination to walk small distances. He has also regained limited mobility in his arms. Beau is hopeful that he will continue to improve his range of motion in his hands, as well as increasing his coordination to walk longer distances. 

Beau’s recovery so far has been a triumph of perseverance and determination, however Beau and his family understand there is still a long road ahead.

In recent weeks Beau, has been leaving the hospital on weekends into a rented unit in Perth. This unit will now become his permanent residency in between regular physiotherapy and occupational therapy sessions.

Beau, the Chatley family and the East Perth Football Club would like to thank everyone for their support since the incident occurred in July. The donations and kind words have been overwhelming and very much appreciated.

Royals Recruits

Monday, November 28, 2016 - 3:55 PM

East Perth has capped off a stellar year by having 3 of our local zone players recruited onto AFL lists.

Sam Powell-Pepper from Mt Hawthorn JFC was selected at pick 18 by Port Adelaide. The hard as nails midfielder is an exciting prospect and the Club will watch with enthusiasm to see what Sam can do at the Power.

Tom Gorter from Kojonup was selected at pick 12 of the Rookie Draft by the West Coast Eagles. Making his League debut half way through last year Tom became an integral part of the senior team, culminating with a best afield performance against eventual Premiers, Peel Thunder in the Elimination Final. Tom also won the East Perth Best First Year Player award. Tom is the first player to be drafted onto an AFL list from Kojonup.

Tarir Bayok was selected as a Category B International Rookie. Born in Sudan, Tarir came to East Perth through the Ellenbrook Dockers. The speedster made recruiters sit up and take notice by posting the second fastest 20m sprint in Combine history at this year’s state screening.

‘It’s pleasing for us and the clubs in our zone to have three young men drafted into the AFL’ Football Operations Manager Mark Winnett said. ‘We wish Sam all the best at the Power. He is a fantastic person and is always welcome at East Perth.’ 

‘It is exciting to see Tom and Tarir be drafted by the Eagles. It’s an outstanding and well deserved achievement for these boys. It’s great for East Perth because the club can continue to watch, support and be involved in some way as the boys continue to develop to reach their potential.’

Colts & Dynasty Update

Thursday, November 24, 2016 - 9:44 AM

Both the Colts and 16s programs have begun with successful inductions over 2 sessions capturing over 150 players and their families.


Adam Pickering has returned to lead the Colts and has embraced the big numbers that have engaged with the program pre-Christmas as the squad prepares themselves for season 2017.


Nick Cox has also returned to head the 16s program. The 16s Program is now referred to by the WAFC as the year 10/11 WAFL Carnival. An East Perth representative side for this carnival will be selected from the ‘Monarchs’ squad, which is at the top of the East Perth Football Club’s ‘Royal Dynasty Program’. The ‘Royals Dynasty Program’ aims to increase foster talent, increase football knowledge and develop outstanding characters within the East Perth zones.


The inductions included an introduction and welcome to the club by East Perth Talent Manager Clint Degebrodt. Following this Adam and Nick spoke to their respective groups about expectations and objectives for 2017. The players were then given information on nutrition, not only how to prepare for training and games but also what they should be doing during the week. The boys then made their way onto Leederville Oval for testing and skills sessions with some terrific preseason times and pleasing results all round.


Sessions for the 16s and Colts players residing in the South West have also begun. These sessions are conducted by lead by Clint Degebrodt and South West Talent Manager Jamie Douse. Douse has been impressed with the condition and touch of the returning players, “A few of the boys have had a really good rest after the season and still returned with some good 2km times. They are also handling the ball nicely for this time of year."


The sessions in the South West are for talented players residing in Augusta, Yallingup, Dunsborough Busselton and Margaret River and aim to increase the groups ball and contact skills as well as the knowledge and understanding of football. The early signs are promising and the Club is confident we will see a continuation of the strong representation from this area again in 2017. 


Josh Rayson has begun preparing the Lower South West players for the upcoming season with strength, power, conditioning and skills sessions in Manjimup. Once again Jamie Douse lends his expertise to this group and players from Pemberton, Northcliffe, Manjimup, Bridgetown and Boyup Brook are strongly represented at these sessions. This will once again be reflected within the 16s and Colts Programs as Lower South West Players continue to be among the strong country presence in the 16s and Colts Programs.


The club is impressed and excited with the effort and the quality of the work being done by players, coaches and staff in the East Perth Development and Recruitment zones.
