Jansen Returns Home

Friday, September 29, 2017 - 10:16 AM

The East Fremantle Football Club is delighted to announce the signing of one of their own. Jarrad Jansen, after two years at Geelong and the last two at Brisbane said he wouldn't have it any other way in returning to play with the Sharks.

The 192cm big bodied Bull Creek Leeming product has played through the midfield and half forward during his time in the AFL system. Jansen played through all of the East 

Fremantle Development Squads before making his debut for the Colts in 2012.

In 2013 Jansen's early season form earned him a State 18's birth, where at the end of that season was taken at pick 36 by the Geelong Cats. Whilst learning plenty and playing some good VFL footy, unfortunately he couldn't break into a strong Cats side at AFL level.

After 2 years at the Cattery, Jansen was then traded to the Lions where in 2016, he made his AFL debut in Round 11 against Carlton. In his two years at Brisbane Jansen played 8 games. He was an integral part of the Lions NEAFL premiership a couple of weeks ago. An outstanding person, with great character Jansen's return is an exciting one for the "Old Easts"

2017 Colts Premiers

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 - 12:33 PM

The East Fremantle Colts have topped a fantastic season with a convincing 54-point win over Claremont, taking home the premiership in the last WAFL Grand Final at Domain Stadium.

As minor premiers, the Sharks went into the game with confidence but knew Claremont’s experience could be dangerous, having played in five consecutive Grand Finals.

From the outset, the Sharks were determined to get off to a good start and Dillon O’Reilly got the ball rolling with a fantastic goal from the pocket. Brandon Collard and Joshua Ritchie added some impressive goals, while the Sharks defence was iron tight, allowing just the one point through in the first quarter.

The Sharks ascendancy continued in the second term, with Ambrose Ryan slotting a goal from the forward pocket. Dwayne Nevill followed shortly after, with great assistance from Samuel Lewis up the ground. A 50m penalty helped O’Reilly kick his second of the game, putting East Fremantle six goals ahead. The Tigers managed their first major before the half time siren, a credit to East Fremantle’s defence.

Claremont came out strong after the main break and the Sharks were wary of a possible third quarter comeback, like we’d seen in the semi-final just two weeks before. However, it was East Fremantle that were able to convert, with Ryan booting his second. Chris Scott, Zachary Johnson and Jye Stone were superb in East Fremantle’s backline, making it extremely hard for the Tigers to get any real momentum going.

The final term was a feeding frenzy for the Sharks, led by a three-goal haul from Tim Bockman. Ryan set up for his third from a tricky angle, but instead opted for a clever dish to Collard who nailed the set shot in front of goal. Ritchie joined in, kicking his second to take East Fremantle’s margin over 10 goals, before the Tigers managed to close in with one final goal.

As has been the case for our colts throughout the year, the ‘team first’ approach was certainly in full force, with every player doing their part.

To the Tigers credit, they provided a tough contest throughout the ground and were unlucky in front of the big sticks.

Chris Scott was presented with the Mel Whinnen Medal for best on ground, having finished with 21 possessions and 10 marks.

Tom Joyce (24 disposals), Milan Murdock and Jayden Quill (17 disposals) were excellent through the midfield.

It was a fantastic way for the Sharks to farewell Subiaco Oval and should give fans confidence going forward, with a talented crop of home grown talent.

AOS East Fremantle Talent Academy Development Squad Carnival 2017

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 - 12:19 PM

Round 1 vs South Fremantle

The AOS Development Squads began their first fixture on Monday 25th September at Shark Park against South Fremantle. The development squads are formed of the most talented players from each WAFL Club’s district, with age groups of year 8 to year 10.

The 8Bs kicked off the day in wet conditions with South Fremantle scoring first. Kobe McMillan was influential in the ruck, running hard throughout the game. South were a bit too strong for our boys and used the ball well in the wet to come out winners for the first game. Ashton Glennister and Lachlan Booker played to their strengths and were among the Sharks best players. Being the first hit out our boys showed some really good signs and were determine throughout.

EFFC – 2.9.21

SFFC – 7.11.53

Best: Kobe McMillan, Ashton Glennister and Lachlan Booker

Goals: Xavier Bradshaw-Pini 1, Cameron Legett1.

 

The 9Bs followed next in again wet conditions. South Fremantle showed good skills in the conditions and kicked accurately throughout the game.  Our boys showed good skills in patches and really tried to counteract Souths dominance but couldn’t match their ability. Rahul Rath and Jackson Merillo showed prowess as well as Andrew Gerovich throughout the match. Tom McGrath and Thomas Anderson played well up forward and kicked the majors for the sharks. Unfortunately, the Sharks were well beaten but our boys showed some positive signs.

EFFC  -2.3.15

SFFC 0- 11.4.70

Best  - Rahul Rath, Jackson Merillo And Andrew Gerovich

Goals: Tom McGrath 1 and Tom Anderson 1.

 

The 8As were very impressive against South with a number of our Midwest boys coming down for the game. The team seemed to gel very well together and used the ball to advantage which saw the Sharks kicking accurately. Kane Fallows kicked 4 majors for the Sharks followed closely by Midwest boys Jed Hagan and Judd McVee. Tom Braimbridge was exceptional and Michael Wall was brilliant off half back with his run and carry. The Sharks were too strong for their close rivals coming out victors by 50 points.

EFFC – 13.5.83

SFFC – 5.3.33

Best: Tom Braimbridge, Kane Fallows, Michael Wall and Jed Hagan

Goals: Kane Fallows 4, Jed Hagan 3, Judd Mcvee 2, Seth Connor 1, Corey Warner 1, Jackson Finnie 1 and Luke Kanny 1.

 

The 9As were red hot from the first bounce with Keanu Haddow and Edward Curley showing some brilliant work through the middle. The game saw 9 Midwest boys take to the field which is fantastic to see and all played very well. Up forward Haddow, Simpson, Curley, Carroll Stedman and Dann were instrumental and the midfield contingent of Walker, Browne and Emery proved too strong and quick for the Bulldogs. Our defence was strong and the rebound off to our midfielders created our scoring opportunities. Josh Stedman had a very good second half in which he took some great marks up forward and kicked truly. Credit to our forwards for the accuracy in what was a brilliant display of football. The team work the boys showed was tremendous and they all helped each other out when need, which contributed to the dominant display. The Sharks finished 76-point victors.

EFFC – 17.8.110

SFFC – 5.4.34

Best: Joshua Browne, Edward Curley, Josh Stedman and Keanu Haddow.

Goals: Haddow 3, Simpson 2, Curley 2, Carroll 2, Dann 2, Stedman 2, Tirant 2, Barlett 1 and Sandy 1.

 

The year 10 squad had their moments when they worked together as a team but South were a lot stronger physically and used the ball very well. Riley Sutherland showed that size doesn’t matter as he put his body on the line whenever he could and showed great determination for the football. Tyler Marci showed some goods signs along with Finn Gorringe as they did their best to try and counteract South’s strength. Johnny Narkle coped well in the ruck and showed some very good ground ball use for a big man. Teague Knight, Denim Ranger and Jordan Penheiro gave us some forward pressure resulting in goals which were a few positives for the 10s. The boys unfortunately were defeated by a dominant South by 56 points. The year 10s can learn a lot from the game on what they need to improve on and can also take some positives from it.

EFFC – 6.4.40

SFFC – 13.18.96

Best: Riley Sutherland, Tyler Macri and Finn Gorringe

Goals: Riley Sutherland, Denim Ranger, Jordan Penheiro, Teague Knight, Finn Gorringe and Johnny Narkle.

Tom Grier and Edward Curley were outstanding in the midfield and Campbell Tirrant was potent up forward.

EFFC-  26.15.171

EPFC – 0.1.1

Best- Campbell Tirrant, Joshua Browne and Rory Williams.

Goals; Campbell Tirrant, Rory Williams, Joshua Browne, Graham Sandy, Christopher Walker, Josh Stedman and Jack Carroll.

 

Our year 10s showed more promise in there 3rd outing, with a number of players out due to rotations and injury. South West played good football and team work which enabled them to use the football well. At times we were second to the football which made us have to play more defensibly. Turnovers and our skills hurt us on the scoreboard which resulted in South West being a bit too strong. We can take some positives out of the game with some boys really taking it up to themselves to play different positions to help their team.

EFFC 3.4.22

South West 12.16.88

Best Riley Newton, Tyrone Papertalk and Kobi McNally.

Goals – Riley Duffy, Ethan Paholski and Jai Warren.

The 8Bs once again kicked off the morning for the Sharks in what was a great game by both sides.

Forward Finn O’Rielly was again instrumental and finished with four goals which was a great effort by him. Jed Hagan at times was swung through the midfield which showed he can almost play anywhere.

Harry Quartermaine was very good down back in what could be his strongest position as he used his body very well against his opponent. Daniel Rogers used the ball well with his run and carry as did Oscar Hitchcock who was also very good.

Ben Harding takes out the Prendergast Medal

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 - 3:56 PM

East Fremantle youngster Ben Harding has taken out the Prendergast Medal, the Best and Fairest Award for the Reserves competition.

This is the icing on the cake for Ben, after a fantastic season of football. Coming through our development pathway, Ben made a smooth transition from Colts to seniors this year. After a number of standout performances in the Reserves, Ben made his League debut in Round 12 and registered another 2 games throughout 2017.

Ben’s ball use was prolific this season, averaging 27.6 disposals in his 16 Reserves games. In rounds 8 and 23 he amassed 35 disposals; a fantastic effort. The small inside midfielder averaged 8 clearances per game and won almost double the contested possessions than the next Shark’s player, hence would have attracting the attention of the umpiring department. 

We look forward to seeing Ben’s development in the coming years and his bright future at the Sharks.
