2019 Fixture Release

Friday, December 14, 2018 - 5:11 PM

The 2019 WAFL fixtures have been released and it’s shaping up to be a great year of football!

Our season kicks off against Claremont at their home ground, which has been a tough battlefield for the two sides in recent years.  

Our first home game is against the reigning premiers, so it will be the Sharks who are wanting to show they can go up against the best.

The ANZAC Derby against port rivals, South Fremantle will be held at Fremantle Community Bank Oval in round 4.

East Fremantle then host the WA Derby on Monday, June 3rd so put that in your diary now- we need all of our supporters at Shark Park.

It’s East Fremantle’s turn to host the MND Cup against Swan Districts in 2019, another important game to come down and support!

The home and away season for the Sharks closes against the new West Coast Eagles team.

Get ready for season 2019 and purchase your membership online here!

The East Fremantle Football Club held its 121st AGM in the Main Social Hall on Wednesday evening.

The Club recorded a small deficit after depreciation of $6,160 for the 2018 financial year.

A highlight of the night was the induction of 5 new Life Members:

  • Angelo Cuccovia – Over 20 years of volunteering
  • Jamie McNamara – Player, Former Captain
  • Dr Damien McCann -Former Club Doctor
  • Craig Treleven – Player, Lynn Medallist, Sandover Medallist, Simpson Medallist

As we had 6 nominations for 4 Directors positions, financial members were asked to cast a postal vote. David Edinger and Kim Chatfield were re-elected, while Michael Brennan and Damien Condon joined the board. Unfortunately, Steve Miguel and Wayne Jones missed out. A huge thank you to Steve, who has served the board since 2011.

Senior Coach Bill Monaghan addressed the members for the first time, providing an overview of preseason and plans for a big 2019. Monaghan also acknowledged the number of injuries that have hit Shark Park and how the club are working towards combatting this.

George Hampson’s departure

Thursday, December 13, 2018 - 10:26 AM

The Club would like to acknowledge George for his services to the Club from 2015 to 2018 with 47 EFFC League games.

This year George won the Club’s Lynn Medal for the Fairest & Best player at the Club, and was also part of the State Team that defeated South Australia.

We wish George the best in his future endeavours.

The East Fremantle Football Club are excited to announce our 2019 Development Coaching staff.

The Head of Development role has been filled by Larry Cavallo. Larry has over 14 years’ experience across all levels of WA Football. As a Senior Assistant he was a part of successful campaigns at Claremont in 2011 and 2012 before taking control of the Midfield for Jarrad Schofield at Subiaco. After the 2014 Premiership with Subiaco, Larry then found himself in charge of the East Fremantle 16s program and well as an Assistant at Colts level. 

Rounding out the Development Coaches for 2019 are Brenton Miller, Louis Cronan and Jonathon Griffin. 

Football Manager Operations Manager, Brad Dodd said Larry was an excellent appointment for the club.

“We saw a need to invest more in our Development program at Senior level, but it was really important we got the right person for the role,” Dodd said.

“Our Development team all have various levels of experiences as players and coaches that compliment each other. We feel, under the guidance of Bill Monaghan and Larry Cavallo, we have a coaching group that will oversee strong improvement in our group."

YOUNGSTERS RETURN

Friday, November 30, 2018 - 4:02 PM

The East Fremantle Football Club is pleased to announce the return of some exciting former Sharks and the signing of a promising youngster. 

Tom Bennett returns after spending the 2018 away with work. Bennett had an excellent debut season for the Sharks in 2017, playing 16 league games and averaging 18 touches- an effort that earned himself Best First Year player. He can play through the Midfield, either Inside or Outside, as well across half back. 

Kyle Baskerville was a highly rated Junior that was cut down with injuries through his Colts years at Shark Park. A hard-running winger, Baskerville took time away from the WAFL, playing a full season with Rockingham in the Peel Football League (PFL) this year. Looking to establish himself at League level, Kyle will be a player to watch in the 2019 season. 

2016 Henry Jeffery Medallist (Reserves Best & Fairest) Jesse Adamini, had a strong start in 2017 but battled through the season with injury. Adamini registered 16 games for the Sharks over 2016 and 2017 season, showing plenty of promise through the midfield. After having this season off to travel, Jesse returns to Shark Park determined to pick up where he left off.

Kyle Havelberg joins the club from Peel Thunder. Kyle is a tough Inside Mid who was a member of the 2017 Colts Team of the Year. Kyle spent the 2018 season at Rockingham in the PFL. Yet to make his League debut, Kyle will be looking to impress throughout Pre-Season.

Andrew Stokes, who registered 13 league games for the Sharks is an athletic defender with a penetrating kick that can play ruck and forward.
