Stevo Calls Time on a Fantastic Career

Friday, August 18, 2017 - 4:05 PM

One of East Fremantle’s favourite sons will run out onto Shark Park for the last time this Saturday.

Andrew Stephen, Lynn Medallist, Life Member, four- time state player and 162 League-gamer has decided to hang up the boots at the end of the season.

An emotional Stevo addressed the playing group yesterday, informing the boys that it’s time for him to move on.

He implored the young list to take responsibility in moving the club forward and towards its next Premiership.

In his wonderful 13 years with the Sharks, Stevo has been remarkably resilient, averaging 19 games a season. Running out for his 150th game earlier in the year saw him earn life membership with the club, a fantastic football honour.

Stevo is an outstanding person both on and off the field. He’s built a reputation as one of the best defenders for his size in the competition, with an ability to quell the influence of some of the most dangerous opposition forwards and providing drive off half back for the Sharks. This year we’ve seen his versality up forward, including a 7-goal haul against Claremont in Round 12.

As in integral part of East Fremantle’s Leadership group since 2011, Stevo has been an excellent role model for so many young players.

It’s undeniable that he’s immensely respected by not only his teammates but his opponents as well.

On top of his 162 league games, Stevo has also racked up 31 colts and 60 development league games in the East Fremantle jumper, a great lesson for all young players about being persistent and biding your time.

Round 22 Preview // Peel

Friday, August 18, 2017 - 2:01 PM

The Sharks will blood their 20th debutant for the season when Dillon O’Reilly takes to the field this Saturday against Peel Thunder.

O’Reilly, although only 17 years of age in June, has been in fantastic form throughout this season, kicking a goal in every colts game he has played. including recent hauls of 7 and 5 against Swans and South respectively, hence leading the WAFL Colts Goal Kicking Award

The 194cm mobile forward leads well at the foot and has worked hard on his one-on-one contests, improving his strength throughout the season to be a danger when close to goal.

O’Reilly, who hails from the East Fremantle Power Junior Football Club, was a State 16’s representative in 2016 will no doubt make his parents Stephen (former Geelong and Fremantle player) and Sharon very proud when he runs out Saturday afternoon.

East Fremantle welcome the return of powerful midfielder Cam Eardley from suspension. Into the 25 also comes Peter Delaney, Sean Henson and Zac McCarrey.

The injury cloud worsened for the Sharks during the week, with Jayden Schofield sustaining an injury at training. However, the boys will be pulling out all the stops for Andrew Stephen in his final outing at East Fremantle Oval.

This is the last home game from the Sharks this season, so make sure you don’t miss it!

Tomorrow Man & Kai Eardley Fund Partner with Sharks on Mental Health

Friday, August 18, 2017 - 1:47 PM

On Wednesday night, the East Fremantle Football Club teamed up with Ryder and Zac from Tomorrow’s Architects (in partnership with the Kai Eardley Fund) to deliver a thoroughly engaging workshop to 47 Sharks players; a cross section of academy, colts, community and a senior player.  The workshop focused on breaking the “Man Code”, busting the male stereotype and strengthening the male emotional muscle.

As many of you may be aware Kai Eardley passed away in tragic circumstances just over twelve months ago.  The Eardley family have long been a part of the East Fremantle Football Club family and through their hard work and strong commitment to men’s health the aim of The Kai Eardley Fund [held with The Fremantle Foundation] is to create positive change for the mental health of our youth and to honour the life of Kai Eardley.

Zac and Ryder started their journey working with Jim Stynes through his foundation and since Jim’s passing have continued their passion in working with young men in the mental health space, providing the tools necessary to speak up, become resilient and seek help, whether it be someone close or professionally.  The young men in the room are to be commended for they were able to open up and share their stories, in what was a powerful session, filled with emotion and humour.

The club looks forward to continuing to provide these opportunities for to the East Fremantle Football community.
