Another BIG Signing

Friday, November 10, 2017 - 4:46 PM

East Fremantle’s rigorous recruiting campaign continues with the crucial signing of big man Cameron Loersch.

Standing at 203cm, the forward/ruck is known for his ability to take a strong contested mark. Coach Rob Wiley said his strength and size are set to have a major impact on the Sharks in 2018.

“Loersch is a welcomed addition, giving us some marking power up forward as well as being able to ruck,” he said.

Selected in the 2016 AFL Rookie Draft, the 22-year-old returns to WA after 2 years on the Gold Coast Suns’ list. Despite some fantastic appearances in the NEAFL including a 7-goal haul, Loersch wasn’t able to break into the Suns side and unfortunately was delisted at the end of the season.

A dominant big man, Loersch took out the Colts WAFL leading goal kicker in 2014, finishing with 57 for the year. Illness forced him out of footy for 12 months in 2015 and after his recovery period, he still managed to catch the eye of recruiters.

Loersch still has hopes to be picked up in the 2017 AFL Draft, but has otherwise committed to the Sharks for the next two seasons

Another Key Signing for the Sharks

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 - 2:58 PM

The Sharks’ 2018 recruiting campaign secured another significant signing with former Bomber Nick Kommer inking a two-year deal with Sharks today.

The explosive and hard-nosed mid/forward played 22 games for Essendon, where he made a name for himself as one of the toughest players in the competition. Kommer said he’s excited to play under Rob Wiley and his team.

“It’s great to be back in the West and playing in the WAFL,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to meeting and playing alongside a new bunch of lads with an up and coming young list.”

His trademark aggression and pressure will be a major inclusion for the Sharks. Coach Rob Wiley said Kommer’s AFL experience and work ethic will also compliment Griffin and Jansen in developing our younger players.

“His pace, aggression and competitiveness will go a long way as we move forward,” Wiley said.  

Selected from East Perth in the 2012 Draft with pick number 73, Kommer made his debut in Round 1 the following year. Despite a fantastic break out season, injuries hampered many opportunities for the 27-year old and as a result he was delisted after playing just the 3 games in season 2016.

Back fighting fit, Kommer spent the past year playing in the Ballarat Football League for Melton South, finishing high up in their best and fairest award.  After five years in the east, the Sharks are rapt to secure Kommer’s signature.  

The club looks forward to Nick Kommer donning the Blue and White when he arrives back in Perth as the Sharks continue to develop their list.

Big Griff is Back

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 - 11:36 AM

The East Fremantle Football Club is thrilled to announce the key signing of Jonathon Griffin, a passionate Sharks man who will once again pull on the Blue and White, for seasons 2018 & 2019.

Following 12 strong years in the AFL system, where he played 97 senior games, Griffin returns to the club where he was selected in the 2005 Rookie Draft at pick number 21 by the Adelaide Crows.  He made his debut in round 1, 2007 and played 41 games for the Crows, before being traded to Fremantle at the end of the 2010 season.  Griffin added a further 56 games in his 7 seasons at the Dockers. 

During the 2011 and 2012 seasons, Griffin played 16 games for the Sharks (when not selected for Fremantle) and was lauded for the way he showed great leadership and passion for his beloved club.  He was instrumental in East Fremantle’s grand final comeback in 2012, when the Sharks fell agonisingly short of the ultimate success.

Further testament to the man, Griffin has been a key leadership figure and player for Peel Thunder under the alignment model.  He was part of Peel’s history in 2016 being a part of the club’s first premiership and in 2017 Griffin played a significant role for Peel finishing 5th in the competition for hit outs in just 14 games. He has also shown an ability to go forward and kick goals under pressure.  In 2015 Griffin was awarded the Docker’s best clubman.

In speaking of his return to ‘Shark Park’ Griffin said it’s great to be back playing for the club he supported as a kid.

“I couldn’t be happier,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to hopefully playing some finals football in the next couple of years and I think there are some exciting times ahead.”

Coach Rob Wiley is delighted to have Griffin back at East Fremantle to not only lead the ruck division, but to be a key figure in driving the expectations and standards of the club.

“It’s great to have not only his talent but his leadership and passion to bring success back to this footy club,” Wiley said.

Following the return of Jansen a month ago, Griffin is the next major signing in the Sharks’ aggressive recruitment campaign for season 2018.  Welcome back “Jonno.”
