THEIR HEART BEATS TRUE

Monday, September 17, 2018 - 3:06 PM

By Darrell Kent

Regardless of the result in the Grand Final next Sunday Falcons supporters cannot help but admire the performance of the League team this year. Written off by many at the start of the year and defeated by ninety eight points by the Bulldogs two weeks ago the players staged a remarkable effort to book a Grand Final berth with a twenty six point victory against South Fremantle. Their pressure all day was a sight to behold as they forced their more fancied rivals to make a number of errors while West Perth managed to take advantage of the opportunities that came their way.

Important Message From New Club President

Monday, September 10, 2018 - 6:46 PM

Dear Members

The last couple of months have been some of the most difficult and significant in West Perth’s long rich history.

As most of you will be aware the Club found itself in a very difficult financial position and had to appoint Voluntary Administrators on 25 July.  We’ve now come out the other side of that process with restructured finances and renewed enthusiasm for the future of West Perth.

FALCONS PRESSURE IMPRESSES

Monday, September 10, 2018 - 10:45 AM

By Darrell Kent

West Perth could not have been more impressive in their fifty three point victory over Claremont at The Arena on Sunday. The Falcons kicked the first goal within two minutes and were never headed in what was one of their best performances for the year. From the first bounce West Perth exerted tremendous pressure on their rivals and as a result they controlled the play to look the better side for most of the day. There will need to be a repeat performance next week when they return to Fremantle Oval to take on the Bulldogs in an encounter that will decide who takes on Subiaco in the Grand Final.

Club Message & Media Statement

Breckler Medal Awards Night 28 September 2018

During the Voluntary Administration period, a discussion was held with the Administrators regarding planning for the Breckler Medal night. Players fees, that were received in early 2018, included an amount for the Breckler Medal function. This money was received early in the 2018 year, and no longer available to the Club to offset the cost for players to attend the function.  The discussion with the Administrators was whether to not host the Breckler Medal function at all, or alternatively, charge the players to attend the function. To honour the payments already received the decision was made to host separate functions and to have tickets available for general sale to help offset the lack of revenue from the players attending the function. The Club is trying to financially manage the fact that the player fees were received at the beginning of the year, and we now do not have those funds to help pay for the functions.

BULLDOGS FAR TOO GOOD

Monday, September 3, 2018 - 9:20 AM

By Darrell Kent

It was a beautiful day for footy at Fremantle Oval on Saturday and as a result a large crowd turned up to watch the qualifying final between West Perth and South Fremantle. The first quarter and a half was an entertaining and even contest but after this point in time the home side took control to run out ninety eight point winners. The Falcons have played consistent football all year, with only one disappointing game against East Perth during that time, but the firepower of the Bulldogs was too much for West Perth to overcome.

YOU HAVE TO LOVE THIS FOOTY TEAM

Monday, August 20, 2018 - 9:03 AM

By Darrell Kent

Two consecutive defeats, Jay van Berlo, Mike Lourey and Mark Hamilton out, third spot in the bag and as a result not as much to play for as East Perth but the Falcons were still too good for their rivals on Saturday. It is a great tribute to the character of the team that they were able to fight back after being down early and record an eighteen point victory. On top of that Tyler Keitel and Andrew Strijk were tied at the top of the goal kicking going into the game. Both kicked three but in the last quarter Keitel passed off on a couple of occasions when he could have taken the lead on his own. Their nearest opponent is nine behind so let’s hope that these two quality players remain at the top of the standings after the last round next week. West Perth has the bye. Also congratulations to Jacob Turner who scored a goal on his debut.
