Dedication, persistence paying off for on-fire Shark Hampson

Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - 11:30 AM - by Chris Pike

SOMEONE with less strength of character could have easily walked away from football several times with the hurdles put in his way, but as George Hampson approaches his 100th game his quality and hard work is paying off and he couldn’t be more thankful for East Fremantle embracing him.

Hampson was always a supremely talented young footballer playing in the 14s and 15s development squads at Claremont. But two knee reconstructions when he was 16 and 18 while at Scarborough soon had him rethinking whether sticking with the game was actually worth it.

But it was coaching as a 19-year-old at Scarborough and taking the under-17s team to a Grand Final that reinvigorated his love for the game and by the time he arrived at Subiaco, he was about to embark on a dream first four years.

WA Day Derby Preview

Friday, June 1, 2018 - 2:42 PM

After an exciting win over Peel, East Fremantle now turn their attention to port rivals, South Fremantle ahead of the WA Day Derby.

The Bulldogs have prevailed in recent encounters but bolstered by last week’s win, the Sharks go in with some confidence. Having showed grit that had been missing from their earlier games, the coaching staff have asked the players to wear their heart on their sleeve and dig deep against the derby rivals.

There were few changes to this week’s line up with James Bristow, Ben Harding, Jayden Schofield and Chris Scott coming into the extended squad.

George Hampson will line up for his 100th WAFL game this Monday. Hampson joined the Sharks from Subiaco, where he was not only a Best and Fairest winner but also a premiership player. Since joining the Sharks, he has continually shown his class and poise on the field. Whether that's playing through the midfield or up forward, he has been a standout player in the competition. Last week Hampson was recognised as the WAFL player of the Round, having finished with 38 disposals, 13 tackles and a goal.

The Development League will also be looking to back up last week’s exciting win. With the return of more senior players, the depth of the side will give the boys some confidence against South Fremantle.

The colts are hoping to bounce back and return to the winner’s circle after a disappointing loss to Peel last week. If selected in the final side, Chad Warner could be the colts’ 44th player this year.

Valiant Sharks Stand Tall

Monday, May 28, 2018 - 10:24 AM

Following a tough month, it was great to see plenty of smiles at Shark Park after Saturday’s 24-point win over the reigning premiers, Peel Thunder.

Determined to put the last few losses behind them, East Fremantle came out with a sense of urgency against a strong Peel outfit. Captain Jon Griffin set the tone, coming through with the first goal of the match.  The visitors missed some opportunities and when Cameron Eardley converted thanks to a clever soccer from Ambrose Ryan, the Sharks had a 10-point advantage at quarter time.

The rain set in for the second term and made it a tough contest for both sides. It wasn’t until the 15-minute mark of the quarter that Peel came through for their first goal of the game. Sean Fletcher booted a fantastic goal against the breeze to keep the Sharks in front by 8-points.

The game opened up after the main break, with both sides kicking three goals apiece. Jarrad Jansen, Ambrose Ryan and Jesse Wynne slotted the majors for the quarter, extending the Sharks lead to 10 points at the final break.

It was a nervous fourth term for Sharks fans as some missed opportunities in front of goals would have sealed the game for the blue and whites. It wasn’t until Cameron Loersch made the most of a 50-metre penalty and a late running goal from George Hampson put the game beyond doubt.

It was certainly a team effort on Saturday, with all 22 players making their presence felt.

George Hampson finished the day with a game high 38 disposals to go with 13 tackles and a goal.

A hard-working midfield with Jarrad Jansen (19 possessions, 12 tackles and a goal), Cam Eardley (17 and a goal) as well as the returning Nick Kommer (23) made their presence felt throughout the day.

Up forward Ambrose Ryan (23 disposals and a classy goal) was brilliant.  Jamie McNamara was influential in the all important final quarter and Cameron Loersch despite kicking 1.3 continues to be a threat.  Fletcher also had 4 shots on goal recording a 1.3 return.

Dylan Winton was outstanding for the Sharks against his old side and Jonathon Marsh continues to shine against the opposition forwards.

East Fremantle now turn their attention to port rivals South Fremantle, ahead of the WA Derby on Monday June 4th.

The Development League also had a taste of success on Saturday, with a huge fourth quarter surge to win by 7 points.

It had been all Peel in the first term, with the Sharks struggling to push the ball into their forward 50.

A more competitive East Fremantle came out in the second quarter, kicking three goals while holding Peel to just one major.

It was a tough third term in the wet, with both sides managing just one goal to give the visitors an 11-point lead going into the final stanza.

East Fremantle hit the board twice within the first 10 minutes to etch out in front. Peel converted to snatch back the lead as both teams fought hard for the ball before Russell Wynne snapped a fantastic goal to keep the Sharks in contention. Zac McCarrey followed suit in the final stages of the quarter to seal the 7-point win for the Development League.

James Bristow, Zac McCarrey and Russell Wynne finished with two goals while Carl Green, Jye Clements kicked one.

Dion Anthony amassed 28 possessions, Ben Harding 26, Zach Jackson 24 and Aaron Holmes 20.

Round 8 Preview v Peel Thunder

Friday, May 25, 2018 - 11:55 AM

The Sharks welcome the return of some senior players as they gear up to take on Peel Thunder at home this Saturday.

Amongst those is Nick Kommer whose form before sustaining a head injury, was fantastic. His on-field leadership and experience will be an important inclusion.

Jamie McNamara looks set to return to the league side this Saturday after an impressive performance in the Development League last week.

James Harrold, Thomas Marshall and Ambrose Ryan also come into the extended 25-man squad.  

Both sides are aiming for a much-needed win, having suffered bad losses in round 7.  

Peel prevailed the last time the two sides met, despite the Sharks holding the lead until the final 15 minutes of the fourth term. 

The Development League also have their sights set on a win after showing some promising signs last week.

With the return of more senior players, the depth of the side will give the boys some confidence against Peel.

It’s a much closer compeititon in the Colts with the top four teams on 16 points, separated just by percentage. The Sharks go into this week’s match without the state representatives and Lachlan McGrath with PSA commitments. Chad Sims comes into the side this week for his colt’s debut following some great form for CBC amateurs. Sims is the 43rd player to run out for the colts this season.
