The East Fremantle Football Club announced today the departure of Steph Walding as the senior coach of our Women's team. This decision comes after the club and Steph were unable to reach an agreement on the terms of a new contract, as both parties' expectations diverged.

A highly regarded premiership coach, Steph will forever hold a special place in the history of the East Fremantle Football Club. Her leadership, dedication, and accomplishments have left an indelible mark on the Women's program.

Commenting on the departure, East Fremantle Football Club President Mark Stewart said, "We would like to express our gratitude to Steph for her significant contributions to our club. Her excellent coaching skills and leadership played an instrumental role in the success of our Women’s program. Her legacy will endure."

Stewart continued, "While parting ways is never easy, we understand that sometimes, negotiations don't align as we'd hope. We hold the utmost respect for Steph, and we wish her the very best in her future endeavours. “

The East Fremantle Football Club will immediately begin the process of searching for a new coach to lead the Women's team. The club is dedicated to ensuring a smooth transition and maintaining its commitment to excellence on and off the field.
