It is with great pleasure that the Sharks announce Stephen Bilcich as the Legend on the Match Ball for 2019.

Stephen Bilcich has been recognised for his service to East Fremantle as a Captain, Premiership Player, Lynn Medallist and 200-gamer.

Walker appointed Mid West Manager

Friday, October 26, 2018 - 3:53 PM

The Sharks are delighted to announce the appointment of Craig Walker as the Mid-West Regional Manager.

The new position is designed to create a smooth transition for players within the GNFL to the East Fremantle Football Club. Walker will also help players returning to Geraldton and assist with flights, accommodation and regular updates on Mid-West player development.

Walker said the intended pathway is not just about preparing players for the next step in their football careers but also helping them with life aspirations.

“We want the players to have a sound understanding that there is life outside of football and to really understand what is required,” Walker said.

“We want them to be able to work and earn a living as well as playing football at their highest potential.”

This role will be significant for streamlining the talent identification process. Working closely with the GNFL through Grady Tomelty and the WAFC Regional Development Officer Kristian Dicton in Geraldton, Walker will be in regular contact with Brad Dodd and Talent Manager Mark Pashby.

According to Walker this new position also provides a clear point of call for the players, parents and GNFL.  

“If there is a hiccup, we now have someone designated to go to, so everyone is on the same path.”

“I’m personally very excited to have this opportunity and I think it will be beneficial for all involved.”

 “We also hope that the community can understand the new transparent process, so perceptions people have had in the past can be eradicated.”

“We understand that sponsoring in this market is hard, but this is a great opportunity to get on board a good program and get behind up and coming players.”

This new role will enhance the already strong relationship the East Fremantle Football Club has with the GNFL.

Craig was a part of the successful 2013 WAFL League Premiership campaign with West Perth. Highly regarded, Craig was an assistant coach for the WAFL State teams in 2014 and 2016. Craig will coach the Sharks Midfield in 2019.

Current Assistant coach, Bradd Dalziell will take control of the Forward line next season. Bradd has coached the East Fremantle Midfield for the past 3 seasons, as well as at the West Coast Eagles Naitanui and Female Academies.

Football Operations Manager, Brad Dodd said the club is delighted to have locked away their Senior Coaching positions for the 2019 season.

“We feel we have a well-balanced and experienced coaching group that will be able to work closely with Senior Coach, Bill Monaghan and our Senior list,” Dodd said.

The East Fremantle Football Club would like to welcome Paul and Craig to the team.
