UPDATE: MEMBERSHIP PACKS

Friday, February 15, 2019 - 4:46 PM

It is with regret that the Perth Football Club must update all members who are supposed to receive a water bottle in their membership pack that we have received a supply of water bottles that are of an inferior quality. 

The water bottles will be sent back to the supplier to be replaced and, as such, aren't able to be supplied to members at this time.

We would like to provide members with two options:

  1. You may collect a water bottle from the 2018 range of merchandise
  2. You are able to wait for the new water bottles to arrive. We will update you on when they arrive at the Club

On behalf of the supplier, the Club would like to apologise to all members for the delay in delivery of this membership pack item. We look forward to being able to supply you with an item of acceptable quality as soon as possible and would like to thank you for your patience.

Preseason review from Senior Coach, Earl Spalding

Monday, February 11, 2019 - 10:36 AM

We have now been back in post-Christmas training for five weeks and have nearly got a full contingent on the track. The last to join us after having both ankles cleaned out is Lennon Marlin, who will commence running in the next week or two.

Sam Garstone, Cody Ninyette, Mitch Lague, Jared Bell, Zareth Roe & Clint Jones have all had interrupted off seasons, due to surgery or rest from significant injuries last year, but have been running for a while now and are slowly being integrated back into the main group. Touch wood, at this early stage, we should have close to our entire list to choose from for Round 1 on the 6th April.

I have been really impressed by the attitude our players have brought with them since we started back on the 19th of November and as a group they are as fit as I’ve seen them in my time here. Our new S&C team has been driving them pretty hard and they have embraced the challenge.

We have had a big focus on defence (in particular our defensive structures) and ball move in our main sessions so far. Our defence continues to be a work in progress, but as they gel and grow more confident with it the improvement will come quickly.

Our new recruits in Matt Rogers and  Chris Bryan continue to impress on the track, in particular Matt, who brings a wealth of experience back with him from Swans and his leadership is already shining through.

Gordon Narrier has had a minor setback with a little knee niggle, but was really impressive pre-Christmas. Other returning players in Josh Burke and Jacob Payne have shown they will be solid contributors this season as they build towards peak fitness.

Of the graduating Colts, Austin Davis, Ethan Hansen and Damian Bennell are been leading the way and have shown they will be knocking on the door for Senior selection early in the season, with Nyika John, Connor Sing and Zac Casey not far behind them. The most important thing with these young men, who are the future of the football club, is that they all have a strong work ethic.

We still have three weeks before our first intra-club game on the 2nd of March, but the boys are jumping out of their skin to get into the games  and it can’t come around quick enough.

On behalf of the Perth Football Club players, coaching staff and support staff – thank you for your support of the Club. We look forward to seeing at the matches this season.

Stack goes to Richmond

Monday, February 11, 2019 - 10:18 AM

Perth Football Club product Sydney Stack is officially a Richmond player, with the Richmond Football Club lodging paperwork today.

Following on from Bobby Hill and Luke English being drafted last November, Sydney is the third Revo Fitness Colts player to be recruited.

After not being selected in the draft, Stacky was offered the opportunity to live with Senior Coach Damien Hardwick and train with the Tigers since December, as part of the AFL’s new Pre-Season Supplemental Selection Period.

“We’re delighted to welcome Sydney to the Club, he’s worked really hard to secure a spot on the list, and we know he’ll continue to work hard to develop his football,” Richmond General Manager – Football, Neil Balme said.

“Sydney’s got great speed, skill, and competes really hard, so we’re excited by what he’ll bring to the team.”

The news of Sydney being drafted is great reward for outgoing Talent Manager, Peter Brear.

Alphabet Racing is back for 2019

Friday, February 8, 2019 - 1:41 PM

Over the last few years, our past Players & Officials Association (PP&OA) have the fun “Alphabet Racing” competition. It is on again this year, with potential starters now being called for. Although based on the local Saturday races you don’t have to be a racing enthusiast to be involved.

How it works:

  • The competition runs for 20 weeks from late March/early April to the middle of August.
  • 26 entrants are formed into a group.
  • There is no limit to the number of groups.
  • Each week, each entrant is randomly drawn a letter of the alphabet.
  • Entrants are then advised prior to the Saturday, via email or SMS, which letter they have drawn.
  • An entrant whose letter for that week corresponds with the first letter of a winner of the races at the Ascot/Belmont meeting is allocated 5 points. 3 points are given for a horse running second and 1 for third place.
  • Each entry costs $100, based on $5 per week. The total amount needs to be paid prior to the commencement of the competition.

The prizes:

  • At the end of the day the highest points scorer for that day wins $40, second highest $15 and third highest $10.
  • At the end of the 20 weeks the highest cumulative points score wins that person $250, second $100 and third $25.
  • In the event of a tie, either weekly or at the end of the period, the prize money is shared.

Where does the money go?

The amount raised is to be utilised for junior football development and other football related programs for the Perth Football Club.

How to join:

Please contact to Brian Sweetapple on 0411 133 038 or by emailing brian.kerry@optusnet.com.au to advise of your interest in being involved.
