Royals to face ladder leader Subi after first loss of 2014

Monday, April 14, 2014 - 9:13 AM

EAST Perth’s Colts opened the round with a 56-point win over West Perth, but it failed to set the tone for the day with our Reserves and League teams both suffering disappointing losses against last year’s premier.

The Royals were unable to generate any momentum, with the Falcons maintaining their lead at every change in the, 22.17 (149) to 7.7 (49), loss.

Craig Wulff produced a typically courageous display with 29 possessions, three inside 50s and a goal, while Brett Dobson and Steven Payne (23 disposals), Nathan Blee (16 touches) and Freddie Clutterbuck (20 disposals, two inside 50s) did their best to withhold the pressure.

Simon Tunbridge, was the only multiple goal kicker for the Royals with three goals from just 9 possessions.

Mark Hutchings (22), Julian Locantro (23) and Callum Hart (15) kicked a goal respectively, while the Falcons kept last year’s Bernie Naylor Medalist, Josh Smith, goalless.

East Perth missed the influence of defender Kyle Anderson, who was a late withdrawal and Jarrad Oakley Nicholls. 

West Perth’s 25 marks inside their forward 50 zone rewarded the midfield for their effort, with Aaron Black (30), Rohan Kerr (26), Andrew Strijk (28), Steven Potente (25) and Shane Nelson (23) taking charge for the Falcons.

Anthony Tsalikis kicked six goals, Marcus Adams had five and Matthew Fowler kicked four. 

East Perth will regroup to face their unbeaten co-tenant Subiaco on Good Friday at Medibank Stadium.



Trent Bradshaw, Sam Ims, Steven Wityk and Kane Moulton kicked a goal each in the Reserves, 22.14 (146) to 4.7 (31), loss. 

Jackson Slater (22 possessions, four inside 50s), Mitch Howlett (18 possessions, five inside 50s), and Tom Shanahan (20 disposals, two inside 50s) were the leading possession getters for the Royals.



The Colts, 13.10 (88) to 3.14 (32) victory was helped by two, three goal hauls from Jack Gare and Matt Marinoni.

Miller, Modica, Kalimeris, Young, Buckley, Decke, and Armstrong kicked a goal each in the 56-point win.

Marty Zambotto had 30 possessions and five inside 50s, while, Hadden (25), Miller (24), Decke (22), Ipsen (22) and Linford (20) had plenty of the ball.

East Perth April Holidays Football Coaching Clinics

Friday, April 11, 2014 - 6:28 PM

East Perth April Holidays Football Coaching Clinics


4 days to go!

Get your forms in by 5pm - Monday


Our very popular Holiday AFL Coaching Clinics for Primary School children are on, once again, in the coming Term 1 holidays:-


          Tuesday, April 15th             – Auskickers 5-8 years old

          Wednesday, April 16th     – Modifieds 9-12 years old


The venue for both clinic days is R.A.Cook Reserve, Coode Street, Morley. They run from 9.00am until 1.00pm. Cost is $70.00, including food and a footy.

These holiday clinics are highly regarded, because we deliberately limit the numbers attending, so that children can get the most benefit out of the activities. We work on a 10:1 player-coach ratio. The children are engaged for the entire four hours and are fed healthy food with an “eat right” message.

The timing of the clinics is great for club players, as those who are playing club are well into their season and they and their coaches on the day can work on those skills that need attention.

Because they are well-regarded, both the Auskick and Mods clinic days book out quickly. Any parent considering enrolling their child should do so without undue delay. A registration form is attached.

The very popular East Perth FC replica jumpers are back and are available for purchase on the enrolment form. $50.00 each – bargain!! Support the Mighty Royals!!

Thanks for your support.

Heat on in Perth Derby

Friday, April 11, 2014 - 12:06 AM

ANOTHER defining chapter will be added to one of the West Australian Football League’s most bitter rivalries when East Perth run onto Medibank Stadium on Saturday afternoon to take on old foes West Perth.

With an expected top of 31 degrees, the Falcons will go into the match having won four of the past five in the grand final rematch. However, the Royals have started season 2014 strongly and join Subiaco as the only other unbeaten team after three rounds. 

Kody Manning is one of four inclusions for West Perth. He will play his first game of 2014 after he was given a three week suspension by the match review panel for a late bump on former Royal Arthur Bennell in last year’s grand final. Marc Crisp, Max Alexander and Matthew Spencer are the other inclusions, while Joseph Morrow has been omitted.

For the Royals, eight players from last Friday’s 75-point win over South Fremantle will not take to the field in this weekend’s clash. 

Scott Lycett, Dom Sheed, Josh Hill and Sam Butler have been named as inclusions for an injury riddled West Coast Eagles team. Pat McGinnity, Jeremy McGovern and Jacob Brennan have been listed as emergencies for the Eagles. Jarrad Oakley-Nicholls is in Coffs Harbour, Queensland, as coach of the WA Team in the Kickstart Cup Under 15 Indigenous Football Carnival.

Matt Gordon, Will Magginness and Malcolm Karparny have been selected as replacements for the Royals following good form in the Reserves.

Jacob Payne, Callum Hart, Dylan Main, Steven Wityk, Julian Locantro, Jackson Slater and Mitch Lague have been named in the extended 25-man squad.

Bouncedown is at 2.05pm, with Reserves (11.35am) and Colts (9.05am) to be played earlier.

Royals victorious over South Fremantle

Monday, April 7, 2014 - 12:00 AM

EAST Perth join Subiaco as the only other unbeaten team after three rounds, following a 75-point, 20.8 (128) to 8.5 (53), victory over South Fremantle on Friday night at Fremantle Oval.

After South Fremantle kicked the first goal of the game, the Royals took an advantage at every change, (two points at quarter time, 32 points at half time and 50 points at three quarter time) to run out victors in the club's first win at the oval since Round 13, 2012.

The experienced hands of East Perth co-captain Craig Wulff led the midfield with 34 possessions, eight clearances, five inside 50s and a goal.

Josh Smith booted four goals in another dominant display (Smith’s kicked ten goals in three rounds). While small forward, Josh Hill added three and Dom Sheed, Fraser McInnes and Scott Lycett kicked two. Mitch Fraser, Nathan Blee, Ash Smith, Mark Hutchings, Sam Butler and Brett Dobson finished with a goal each.

Kyle Anderson and Steven Payne marked their 50th game milestones for the Royals with another notable performance. Anderson proved again to be one of the premier backmen of the WAFL keeping South Fremantle forward Ben Saunders to just one goal, while, Payne finished the game with 19 possessions and two inside 50s.

The rucking duo of Paul Johnson and Scott Lycett took a 48-32 advantage in ground hitouts. With James Sellar out with a knee injury for South Fremantle, former Royal, Brock Higgins, was given a huge task in the ruck, but battled well finishing with 20 hit outs and seven inside-50 entries.

Nathan Blee had 29 touches, four inside 50s and a goal in another notable display upon his return from a season in the AFL system. 

Ashton Hams, a dual South Fremantle premiership player, finished with 33 possessions and nine clearances. Hayden Schloithe worked hard with 28 possessions, eight clearances and a goal and Josh Pullman kicked his first two goals for the club from 13 possessions and four marks for the Bulldogs.

Meanwhile, two players who will be vying for a spot in the coming months for the Royals will be co-captain Brendan Lee and Garry Moss.

Moss is returning from a knee reconstruction last year and was a runner for the league side on Friday night. While, Lee is recovering from a badly broken finger suffered in the pre-season.

East Perth will face West Perth in the Grand Final rematch on Saturday afternoon.



The Reserves remain unbeaten at the top of the table after a 16.7 (103) to 6.11 (47) win.

In the top of the table clash the Royals dominated with a 56 point victory.

For the Royals Michael Rimbas kicked three, while Steven Wityk, Dylan Main, Marcus Ruggiero and Will Maginness had two. Hughes, Ims, Hodgson, Hart and Bradshaw kicked one each.

Maginness had 31 possessions, Shanahan (25), Locantro (22) and Hart (20).

Jack Gare kicked two goals in the loss, with Hille, Decke and Anderson all with the one.


Royals face hungry Bulldogs

Thursday, April 3, 2014 - 11:14 PM

East Perth will face a South Fremantle outfit that remain winless in the opening two rounds of 2014 under lights tonight at Fremantle Oval.

The Royals go into the match as one of three unbeaten teams, joining Subiaco and Perth at the top of the WAFL ladder.

Local Coolbinia product, Mark Hutchings, will play his first game for the Royals since being drafted to St Kilda at the end of 2009. Hutchings, who is listed with the West Coast Eagles joined West Perth after being delisted from the AFL and won the Simpson Medal for the Falcons in last year’s Grand Final. He is returning from a back injury.

Steven Wityk, Matt Gordon, Callum Hart, Julian Locantro and William Magginness have been named in the extended 25-man squad. Scott Lycett, Will Schofield and Dom Sheed have been listed as emergencies for the Eagles.

Meanwhile, former Royal, Brock Higgins will play for South Fremantle in his first match against East Perth. While Bulldogs veteran, Paul Mugambwa, new recruit James Sellar, and Ben Sokol have been named as outs for the Bulldogs.
