Dear Member

Firstly, I would like to sincerely thank our incredible members for their remarkable support in what has been a year like no other.

Despite the struggles everyone was facing, the Sharks community came together like never before to unite for the club we all love.

The $107,000 raised from the GoFundMe page not only enabled the club to survive the Covid-19 period but has also helped secure our future with a fund going forward.

 East Fremantle finished 2020 with a strong financial return, due to Job Keeper and BAS subsidies from the State Government.

The Redevelopment is progressing well, and we are excited to release more information at our upcoming AGM on Wednesday December 9th.

On-field, one win and seven losses is not where we expected to be. Our fortunes would have looked far more positive at 4-4 had we not lost three consecutive games by less than a goal. However, the ‘almost’ wins do not count, and we need to be able to win games that go down to the wire. We are confident that under the tutelage of Bill Monaghan, success is around the corner for the Sharks. 2020 saw the development of a new crop of talent between the ages of 19-24, who will be instrumental in our league side for the next five to ten years.  

The coaching staff identified the need to add top end talent to our existing squad and we are delighted to welcome Josh Schoenfeld and Corey Chalmers to the club, as well as the return of our own Dillion O’Reilly.

We are also pleased to have re-signed several key Sharks, keep an eye on our social media so you don’t miss any announcements.

Our Colts program continues to develop players and we look forward to seeing what Adrian Ricciardello can do in his second year as head coach.

It was another strong year for the East Fremantle Women’s Football Club. The appointment of Simon Quayle as Head Coach brings a new era of excitement. We would like to sincerely congratulate outgoing three-time premiership coach Nikki Harwood on her incredible achievements. The 2021 WAFLW has been brought forward to February, aligning with the AFLW Season. They continue to develop talent in their reserves and youthies sides and will again push for finals appearances.

The East Freo Sharks Netball will also look to back up their strong 2020 campaigns as we enter the third year of our partnership.  

Your support through purchasing a membership is vital for our club. We have options to suit all budgets and we hope you can support us again in 2021.

We are thrilled to announce a new payment option for our loyal East Fremantle Supporters. Sharks Easy Pay is an automatic payment option that renews your membership each year by deducting your membership costs from your nominated Credit or Debit Card. We then send out your membership packs as usual! All you have to do is ‘Opt-In’ at the checkout, for more T&C’s click here.

We’re excited for pre-season to commence on Monday November 30th and to get back to the top of the ladder where the Sharks belong!
