Information for Members - EPFC Constitution

Friday, December 14, 2018 - 1:41 PM

Dear Members

As an Incorporated Association the East Perth Football Club is bound by the Associations Incorporation Act 2015 which came into force in July 2016. The Act includes 19 matters known as the 'Schedule 1' requirements which need to be addressed in the rules (Constitution) of the association. All associations are required to amend their existing Constitutions to incorporate the Schedule 1 requirements and to have their amended Constitution adopted by the members of the Association on or before the 1 July 2019.

The Board of East Perth with assistance from law firm K&L Gates have prepared a new Draft Constitution that was endorsed at a Board Meeting on Tuesday the 11th of December.

For the new constitution to be adopted, the following special resolution has to be passed at our AGM on 10 February 2019.

'That the existing Constitution of the Association be repealed and replaced with the Constitution tabled at the meeting and signed by the Chairperson. This resolution does not come into effect until the Director of Liquor Licensing has approved the new constitution for the purposes of the Liquor Control Act 1988'

The new draft Constitution contains a number of rules which are specific to the efficient and effective operation of our Club as well as the rules set out in Schedule 1 of the Act. It is proposed to put the new draft Constitution to the members for adoption at the AGM to be held on Sunday 10th February 2019. A copy of the new draft Constitution and the proposed changes can be downloaded below (Please click link below).

Pre-Season Update

Thursday, December 13, 2018 - 1:01 PM

Joint 2017 FD Book Medallists Nathan Blee and Julian Ameduri headline recent re-signings for the upcoming 2019 WAFL Season. Nathan has re-signed for 1 year, while Julian has extended through to the end of the 2020. Reserves Grand Final Captain, Nathan Eaton, has also put pen to paper for the next 2 seasons as he presses his case to become a regular league footballer. 

Once again the club has been very active on the recruiting front. In addition to the recent announcements of Angus Scott and Rohan Kerr the club has added some experienced and exciting players in what shapes as an intriguing season ahead. 

27-year-old Joel Houghton joins the clubs after recent stints with Collie and Halls Head in the country leagues. At 194cm & 94kg the former Dockers listed key forward brings some much needed experience and size to our forward line. Most recently in the WAFL system with Swan Districts, Joel is excited about the opportunity for a fresh start and making an immediate impact for the club.

Former West Perth forward Matthew Johnson joins the club after playing out in Gingin during the 2018 season. The 24-year-old speedster’s debut game in 2013 still burns in the minds of some of the Royals faithful where he kicked 6 goals against East Perth. We’re hoping that he can repay the favour while wearing the Blue and Black after committing to the club until the end of 2020.  

Ex Subiaco pair Jarrhan Jacky and Nick Hay also join the club after playing community footy in 2018. 29-year-old Jacky has a wealth of experience from his time with the Adelaide Crows, as well as time with Swan Districts and Subiaco. His ball use and the way he reads the game will excite. While 26-year-old Hay returns to the WAFL after playing with Scarborough in 2018. The 192cm, 99kg key position player can play at both ends of the ground and has impressed with his strength and competitiveness so far.

After being delisted by West Coast at the end of the AFL Season exciting Ruckman Tony Olango has also join the Royals for the next 2 years. While it was a frustrating year for Tony due to injury he thoroughly enjoyed his time down at East Perth, made some great friendships and had no hesitation in committing to being part of the club as he looks to get a good run on the park in 2019.

With close to 100 players vying for spots in our senior group for 2019, the sessions have been tough and the standard has been high. Recently graduated Colts players in

Louis Miller and Jacob Msando have both shown that could push for some senior opportunities in 2019, as do regular Reserves players in Christian Ameduri and Harley Stack, while key position players Sam Bevan and Marcus Ruggerio have taken great strides as they return to the WAFL system. Jackson Ramsay hasn’t missed a beat since missing most of the 2018 season after ACL surgery and shapes as a new recruit for the start of the season. 

Veterans Pat McGinnity, Kyle Anderson, Nathan Blee and Sharrod Wellingham have all come back well straight into full training and along with players like Tom Gorter, Shayne Hille, Ben Miller, Taylor North and Stan Wright continue to set the standard on track. 

Julian Ameduri, Will Maginness, Callum Hart, Lewis Wilson and Mitch Fraser head the group of players currently in rehab. Apart from Mitch, who looks like he’ll miss most of the season after an ACL repair, the rest of the group look at being available for the start of the WAFL Season.

With only 4 sessions left for the year before the Christmas break, the whole group is pushing hard with some tough list decisions on players to be made very soon.

Country Zoned Players Seeking Accommodation For 2019 Season

Friday, December 7, 2018 - 9:39 AM

Each season a number of talented footballers make the journey from our South West and Lower South West Zones to Perth to represent the East Perth Football Club.

Many of these players are 17-18-years-old and are leaving their family homes for the first time, seeking employment and accommodation as they pursue their footballing dreams.

I would like to reach out to all members of the ‘East Perth Family’ and ask those in a position to assist these players in their transition to raise your hands and contact the club.

If you have a spare room or rental property that you can offer to a player or can assist in taking on an apprentice or employing an extra staff member please let me know. No offer is too small, and all will be appreciated.

These young men do not expect anything for free and take nothing for granted. All who take on players will be compensated as players are willing to pay rent, utilities, food etc.

They can also be a handy pair of strong hands when it comes to those odd jobs around the house!

Your spare room, property or employment opportunity could potentially set the foundation for East Perth’s next star or even the next AFL draftee.

Please contact EPFC Talent Manager Scott Faulkner for more details or to answer the call for help.

At 23 years old the 180cm forward adds senior experience to our group, as well as leadership, having being part of the Demons leadership group.

 

After 3 years on Carltons list and 4 seasons with West Perth, Rohan Kerr returns to the WAFL competition after playing in back to back premierships with Pinjarra in the Peel League. Kerr brings more than 100 games of state league experience, as well as being a WAFL premiership player with West Perth. The 185cm running midfielder recently turned 27 and is looking forward to adding to his successful resume with the Royals in 2019.

 

Now at the end of the 2nd week of training the group has had excellent numbers on track with many other new faces coming to try the step up to senior WAFL football.
