LETTER CLARIFYING SPORTS MEMORABILIA AT PERTH STADIUM

Monday, March 6, 2017 - 9:56 PM

OPEN LETTER TO ALL WAFL PRESIDENTS AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICERS REGARDING SPORTS MEMORABILIA AT PERTH STADIUM

I write to you collectively to clarify my views about the importance of recognising the rich history of WA football at the new Perth stadium and to address some of my inadvertent comments in last week’s article.

I want to reassure you that ALL options to showcase WAFL footy memorabilia at the new Perth stadium are still on the table – including the Sandover Medal Walk - and all options are still being discussed by our sporting memorabilia reference group, led by Ronnie Hurst.

Only last week, the WAFC presented an excellent submission to the Sporting Memorabilia Reference Group. At that meeting, Ronnie outlined the room naming strategy and confirmed that all WAFL Champions and Legends will be duly recognised at the new stadium. He did, however, confirm that he couldn’t exactly state where and how they would be recognised at this point in time because discussions are still continuing.

FALCONS GEAR UP TO GO UP A LEVEL IN 2017

Friday, December 23, 2016 - 5:35 PM - by Chris Pike

WEST Perth wasn't too far off the top WAFL teams in the 2016 season and the Falcons have taken some encouraging steps towards being a premiership contender once again in 2017 with promising signings.

The Falcons made a slow start to the 2016 season losing four of the first five games but went on to win 12 of the next 15 to qualify for the finals in third position before losing to South Fremantle and Peel Thunder.

Having played in two of the previous three grand finals and then being third at the end of the home and away season, the Falcons won't need to improve much to be a genuine contender again in 2017 with the majority of the core playing group set to return.
