EFFC Announces Expanded Football & Midwest Operations

Thursday, March 28, 2024 - 1:00 PM

The East Fremantle Football Club is pleased to announce that Brad Dodd will be taking on the newly created position of General Manager of Football Operations. This promotion sees Brad take on responsibility for all football activity, including our Women’s program and talent development operations. Brad will retain responsibility for the Senior Men’s program within the expanded role.

On the promotion, Brad said “It’s an exciting time at East Fremantle, with the move into the new facility - which is eagerly anticipated by the players, staff, and our supporters. We are a close-knit team in the Sharks football department and my new role will allow better synergies between the groups as we continue to strive to be the best State League club in Australia”.

The club has also created another new position, Midwest Operations & Strategy, and have appointed Harry Taylor to the position. Harry will oversee all activity in the Midwest region, with a focus on the talent pathway but also supporting community engagement and commercial objectives.

On the new appointment, Harry is looking forward to assisting in improving East Fremantle Football Club’s community engagement within the Midwest region, “The Sharks have had a strong connection to the Midwest through talent development and commercial relationships and we hope to continue to strengthen these connections and relationships moving forward”.

These two new roles are an exciting development for the growth of the club. The introduction of a permanent operations role in the Midwest is particularly important for the region, as the club looks to continue to encourage the growth of football in the area.

CEO Addy Wetzler is thrilled with the expansion, “Brad has been a key senior figure within the club for some years now, and it’s great to see his dedication recognised. It’s also exciting to be able to strengthen our commitment to the Midwest region with Harry’s appointment and we’re grateful for the grant funding from the West Australian Football Commission and support from the local community which has enabled this investment.”
