Snadden Returns to Circle with Sharks

Monday, November 20, 2017 - 5:20 PM

The East Fremantle Football Club is excited to announce the return of one its own, with youngster Jordan Snadden signing with the Sharks for the next two seasons.

At 20 years of age, the big bodied inside midfielder with a racking left kick and great character will don the Blue and White, re-uniting with many of his former Colts team mates.

“Signing Jordan is another coup for the Sharks going forward and it’s fantastic getting an East Fremantle product back into our system,” Rob Wiley said.

“His experience having spent the last two years at AFL will be invaluable for our group and as a player, Jordan offers us a lot of flexibility to our team structures.”

Snadden made his way through the Sharks academy pathway, debuting in the colts as a 16-year-old in 2013. Earning a position in the State 18’s side, Snadden attracted the attention of recruiters which ultimately saw him selected by West Coast in the 2015 AFL Rookie Draft with pick number 17.

Joining this afternoon’s training session, Snadden said he’s excited to be back.

“It’s great to be back.  I’m looking forward to getting into it and meeting all the guys I haven’t in the past.  Many of my good mates are also here,” Snadden said.

Athletic by nature, he excelled during the testing at the draft combine, topping the standing vertical jump results and finishing top 10 in the running vertical jump, 20m sprint and repeat sprints.

In his two years with the Eagles, Snadden played some impressive games for the alignment side, East Perth, but unfortunately couldn’t break into the strong West Coast team. Registering 14 league games this year, his form in the back end of the season particularly, will give him confidence going into 2018.

Snadden no doubt will be a vital part of the Sharks revival.

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.
