Rob Wiley - Media Statement

Wednesday, June 20, 2018 - 10:09 AM

Rob Wiley, the senior coach of the East Fremantle Football Club has this week notified the Board of Directors that he will not exercise his option to continue as coach of the Sharks for the 2019 season. During a meeting with the Board and senior staff on Monday, Rob gave notice of his resignation to which the Board has reluctantly but amicably accepted. Rob and the Board have mutually agreed for Rob to continue as senior coach of the Club for the remainder of the 2018 season.

Rob stated “I have been coaching the Club for three years now and was certainly hopeful of attaining much better results. Yes, we have had a terrible run with injuries, but regardless of this fact, clearly the playing group have not achieved the results that we would have liked or accepted”.

“I am a realist and these results aren’t what the Club and Members expected, so I must put the Club first and allow them to search for a replacement for the 2019 season. I sincerely thank the club for giving me the opportunity to be their senior coach for the past three years and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the Board, Players, Coaches, Members and Volunteers of this great Club, but unfortunately it wasn’t to be.”

President Mark Stewart also stated that “It is very disappointing to see Rob finish his outstanding career as a player, coach and icon of the game in Western Australia this way”.

“I know personally that Rob has given everything he could to improve the playing group over the past three years, but we simply couldn’t get our best personnel on the field for any long periods of playing time. The Board was unanimous that Rob will coach the Club until the end of the season, allowing the Club to seek a replacement coach over the next four months for the start of the 2019 season”.

Northern Regions Colts Carnival Wongan Hills 2018

Monday, June 18, 2018 - 12:57 PM

The 8th Annual Northern Regions Colts Carnival was played over the weekend with 5 teams participating for the Bert McClements Shield.

The teams involved were Avon Football Association, Central Midlands Coastal Football League, Great Northern Football League, Mortlock Football League and North Midlands Football League.

East Fremantle Talent Manager Mark Pashby along with Larry Cavallo Head Coach of the EFFC 15’s & 16’s Development Programme attended the carnival on Saturday & Sunday.

The grand final saw the GNFL play Mortlock, who held a 3-goal advantage at the main break.  Relentless running and outstanding pressure in the second half saw the GNFL finish comfortably for their 8th consecutive grand final win.

The GNFL had several exceptional players throughout the weekend. Captain Len Papertalk lead the way with outstanding contested marking and tackling pressure that saw him voted the Fairest & Best player of the Carnival.

Others to impress were Tom Collins and Michael Wright off half back. Darcy Rowe, Gerard McKenna & Lee Hutchins were consistent over the whole carnival as was (VC) William Faithfull who was a standout in the grand final. Kristerfer Ryder up forward was always dangerous kicking goals and was a handful for opposition defenders the entire carnival with his marking and work rate being of the highest order.

Each of the boys played their role, with their use of the ball and selfless style of play, a pleasure to watch. The team was coached exceptionally well by Dave Fiorenza and his assistants who focused on every player making his team mate look better. The team first attitude was obvious, and their ball use was exceptional for a side that has not played or trained together for very long.

11 players from the GNFL made the All Stars Squad of 30.

Tom Collins (Towns), Leon Galby (Mullewa), Gerard McKenna (Chapman Valley), Michael Wright (Chapman Valley), Len Papertalk (Chapman Valley), Kurt Crudeli (Railways), Kristerfer Ryder (Brigades), Darcy Rowe (Mullewa), Lee Hutchins (Brigades), Kaiden Dann (Brigades) and Virien Mourambine (Northampton)

Congratulations to all involved at the GNFL.

Sharks Blood 11th Debutant

Friday, June 15, 2018 - 3:26 PM

East Fremantle are on the road for the third week in a row, headed to Lathlain Park to take on Perth.

After last week’s frustrating loss, the Sharks are determined to put in a competitive four quarter effort.

Into the 25 this week comes Aaron Holmes, Jarrad Jansen, Ryan Lester-Smith, Ambrose Ryan and the Sharks 11th debutant, Tim Bockman.

Playing junior football at East Fremantle, Bockman made his way through our development pathway. He was a part of our 2017 Colts Premiership team, where he booted 3 goals in the grand final. Bockman is an explosive forward with a good leap and strong mark. He’s solid in front of goals and has the ability to go inside and win the footy.


The Sharks prevailed by 7 points when the teams met earlier this year and will be looking to register another win against Perth. It won’t be an easy feat however, with the Demons coming off an emphatic win against the second placed Bulldogs.

Both the Colts and Development League are also looking to return to the winner’s circle following disappointing losses to Subiaco last week.

Perth are hosting their District Gala Parade so please note the later league start time. Bring the kids along and keep them entertained with the free bouncy castle!

Round 10 Match Preview

Friday, June 8, 2018 - 4:47 PM

The East Fremantle Sharks will take on the undefeated Subiaco Lions this Saturday at Leederville Oval.

It will be no easy feat for the Sharks, with a 5-day turnaround while the Lions are fresh off the bye.

The sides have only met in the preseason this year, where Subiaco ran out victors.

There are several inclusions to this week’s side with injuries from the derby forcing some changes. While a number of players from the development league made strong cases for selection. Into the 25 this week comes Dion Anthony, Ben Harding, Sean Henson, Zac McCarrey, Chris Scott, Jordan Snadden, Russell Wynne and Zac Jackson, the latter a potential to make his league debut.

The team will be without Ambrose Ryan and Ryan Lester-Smith, who are both out with concussion. Having battled with an ongoing shoulder injury, James Bristow has made a forced decision to seek surgery which will see him miss the rest of the season. The club would James a speedy recovery. 

Despite last week’s loss, the Sharks had showed encouraging signs and will need to make the most of scoring opportunities.

Bolstered by consecutive wins, the Development League will look to register their fourth win against a strong Subiaco outfit.

The Colts returned to the winner’s circle after a strong win against derby rivals. There will be a few changes to the side, with PSA commitments.
