PRESIDENT REPORT

PETER HARVEY

While there were some positives and tough times on the field in

2011, and plenty going on off the field as well in the things we

continue to grow and develop as a club and organisation, I must

firstly talk about Luke Adams.

What happened to him was a tragedy and left us all devastated,

but the fight he has shown to have recovered so well and be well

and truly on track to be able to live a fully and happy life, is an

inspiration to us all.

It also had another flow on affect with our CEO Brendan Parker.

So touched by Luke was Brendan, that he is now in charge of

the Luke Adams Foundation and there is no way we could ever

begrudge Brendan wanting to leave his post at the club to pursue

that.

Brendan has been an amazing contributor to the growth of Swan

Districts, though, first as football manager, then CEO and I very

much doubt that we would have developed a premiership team,

or grown as an organisation that does so much in the community

without his vision, dedication and work ethic.

In his absence, Angela Doyle did an outstanding job as acting-CEO

for the rest of 2011 and now we are excited to welcome Tom

Bottrell to the role from 2012 onwards.

It is exciting for us at the Swan Districts Football Club to also see

the outstanding performances of our products in the AFL, and

then for us to continue to help players to get drafted into the

system. Nic Naitanui, Chris Yarran, Jeff Garlett, Todd Banfield and

a host of other young players that we have produced in recent

years are now stars of the game and we are so proud of them.

Congratulations this year as well to Stephen Coniglio, Corey Gault

and Murray Newman for being drafted.

The 2011 season was obviously a tough one for us on the field.

Coming off the premiership, things just seemed to go wrong from

the outset for us. Starting with us losing most of our premiership

back-line including Wayde Twomey, Matty Spencer, Trav Casserly

and Paul Richardson was unavailable most of the year and Luke

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

Pratt and Jarrad Blight couldn’t get right because of injury and

then Luke Miles went down as well.

It just seemed that one thing after another went wrong for our

league side throughout the year, but there were some positives

to take out of it. Tallan Ames held that back-line together

remarkably and it was great to see him win his first Swan Medal.

Graham Jetta, Jarrhan Jacky, our captain Josh Roberts, Tom Roach

and Kyle Hams all were among the players to stand up.

It was a tough initiation to senior coaching for Greg Harding as

well, but ‘Stiffy’ is an outstanding coach and teacher of players

and we have no doubt he will be able to help us turning things

around on the field on 2012.

A bit of luck with injuries and with some things that went wrong in

2011 turning around quickly, plus some exciting recruits of which

we already have one in the form of dual Subiaco premiership

player Shaun Hildebrandt, and I am sure we will have an exciting

season in 2012 under Greg.

While we could go on talking about on-field matters, as President

I am so proud of the continued growth we are making as an

organisation in so many areas and it was fantastic that we were

rewarded with the Minister’s Award for Industry Excellence

recently at the WA Sport and Recreation Industry Awards.

You never set out to win awards like that, but when you do it really

hammers home the importance of everything that you do as a

club has in the overall scheme of things and it makes everyone

at the SDFC even more focused and determined to continue the

positive impact we are having.

On behalf of the board, I want to personally thank all of our

staff, coaches, players, support staff and volunteers that

make our club run the way that it continues to as arguably the

biggest, and most influential, WAFL club on and off the field.

Now it’s time to look ahead to 2012 and it is exciting for so many

different reasons that I now can’t wait for the footy to start.

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK 5


The 2011 year was definitely one of learning for everyone at

the Swan Districts Football Club.

Replicating the success of 2010 was always going to be a

challenge for this great club but we entered the season with

high hopes. Unfortunately after some crucial losses early in

the season we struggled to find consistency and combat the

ever growing list of injuries, for many players season ending.

But while the league side might not have had quite the year

we were hoping for, we certainly witnessed many shining

lights throughout the year.

Tallan Ames continued his impressive form down back in

2011, taking out his first Swan Medal, congratulations Tallan.

We have continued to lead the way in terms of providing

talent for the AFL. Congratulations to Stephen Coniglio,

Murray Newman & Corey Gault for being taken in this year’s

national draft; we wish them all the best as they take the next

step in their football careers. We also witnessed some strong

performances from our senior players Tom Roach, Graham

Jetta, Tim Geappen, Ashley Hansen and Tallan Ames at the

State level.

The 1961-62-63 premiership anniversary, I believe, was the

event of the year as we honoured stars of the past. To have

so many heroes of this club gathered for one evening and to

hear the stories of Bunton, Slater, Bagley & Walker, was truly

special and a great way to reflect on such a prolific era of the

Swan Districts Football Club.

At the community level, via our V Swans programs, we

continue to provide first class delivery throughout the Pilbara

and metro regions. I am often asked what the ‘V’ stands for

in V Swans; it is actually the formation in which Swans fly

to protect each other and move with speed and strength to

CEO REPORT

ANGELA DOYLE

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

ensure they reach their destination together - a very fitting

metaphor for our entire club.

Our V Swans team has worked extremely hard over the past

few years with the support of great partners such as BHP

Billiton, Chevron, Steel Blue, Midway Ford, Pilbara Motor

Group, Australian Reliance & Newcrest, to identify and meet

the needs of the diverse communities within our zone. The

level of excellence we have achieved is now being recognised

at a state and national level evidenced by our success at the

recent 2011 WA Sport & Recreation Industry Awards. Not only

did our Hedland based Shooting Goals program win the award

for Provision of Sport and Recreation to Regional WA, we also

managed to take out the coveted $10,000 Minister’s Award

for Industry Excellence. Congratulations to Nicole Graves and

her team and thank you to our partners for enabling us to

achieve such great outcomes at the community level.

Sometimes, however, we can be inspired by someone or

something beyond the scope of our football and programs;

and such was the case with the story of Luke Adams. It is

never easy seeing one of your own face a life threatening

situation and Luke’s fight had a profound effect on the club,

touching each one of us in some way. He is a true champion

who continues to astound us in his remarkable recovery and

inspire us as we forge ahead. We wish Luke and his family all

the best for 2012.

2011 also saw the departure of our CEO, Brendan Parker.

Brendan has had significant involvement with the SDFC, firstly

as a player back in the 1990s, then following football’s career

pathway as football manager and finally as CEO, where he

developed many new initiatives and programs, and achieved

premiership success in 2010.

Brendan’s impact on our club will be long-lasting. His vision


to diversify our business has presented us with opportunities,

combined with challenges that many WAFL clubs are yet to

even see. He has created a dynamic business that remains

competitive in the current marketplace and will allow us

to achieve further success in the future. The SDFC wishes

Brendan all the best in his future endeavours.

I certainly feel grateful and fortunate for the opportunity

presented to me to step into the CEO’s chair after Brendan

did decide to move on. There is no doubt that it has been

invaluable to my development as a sports administrator, but

even more so as a person. I’d particularly like to thank Nicole

Graves & Phil Smart for their guidance and support during this

very challenging transition period. I have no doubt the work

that we have done in the last six months will show true value

in the years to come.

The club has since gone through an extensive selection process

appointing a new CEO and we are delighted to welcome Tom

Bottrell into the role as of the start of 2012.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank the board and

our ever-growing staff here at the Swan Districts Football Club.

The work that each and every one of you do, and dedication

you have, is what drives our success both on and off the field.

The hours that you all put in and the passion you show to make

us a successful, professional and innovative outfit cannot go

unacknowledged.

The true strength and commitment of your supporter base is

tested during your tougher years, and this year our supporters

stood tall. We still maintained attendance records beyond

most other WAFL clubs. Swans supporters are renowned (and

sometimes feared) throughout football circles; we thank you

for your continued support and hope to see you again next

year as you drive us to greater success.

Finally to our major partners - Steel Blue, Midway Ford, BHP

Billiton & Chevron thank you for your ongoing commitment

to this club and the outcomes we are trying to achieve. But

also to our associate, media, club one sponsors and members,

your contribution remains crucial to the financial viability of

this club, creates community capacity and is a driving factor to

our overall success - thank you.

I have no doubt that the Swan Districts Football Club will reach

new heights in 2012 as we continue to fly together to reach

our destination - another Premiership.

MANAGER REPORT

PHIL SMART

Season 2011 was one of disappointment after coming off

a remarkable 2010 season. It was a difficult season for our

coaching staff headed by senior coach Greg Harding may I say

as it would have been for any coach coming off such a long

awaited and overdue league premiership in 2010.

There was no doubt losing three players of the calibre of

Krakouer, Twomey and Casserly affected the performance of

the league team and in particular contributed to the poor skill

level we displayed throughout the season. We were unable

to put a consistently regular team out each Saturday due to

serious injuries to senior players. These are not meant to be

given as excuses but as contributing factors to a season that as

a Football Club we see as unacceptable.

I strongly believe for the Club to have sustained and long term

success we need to have a policy “of developing our own

players and promoting from within”. This is by no means a non

recruitment policy but one of promoting long and sustained

success. The club will need to be more selective on the players

that they recruit.

Greg Harding worked diligently and hard to lift the team’s

performance throughout the season. One of the most

impressive qualities of Greg was to continue to push the young

players from our reserves and colts team up to play seniors as

their form permitted. Greg was ably assisted by his assistant

coaches Cam Shepherd , Geoff Valentine and Adrian Hickmott.

Craig Callaghan again coached the seconds in what was another

difficult season. Craig sadly will not continue in this role in 2012

due to family commitments. Craig will not be lost to the club as

he will continue in a role more suitable to his time constraints.

We thank Craig for all his efforts in what many would say is the

most difficult role in our club.

Adrian Hickmott unfortunately was only involved in our club

for one season after accepting a role with West Coast Football

Club as a Development Coach. He was a great ambassador

and mentor to our young players. Adrian and his family’s

commitment to our club was 100% and we wish them every

success in their future endeavours. To Steve Thomson, Trent

Davies, Russell Banks and Russell Wholgan, thank you for your

wonderful support in all our development programs.

To our clubs many loyal and dedicated support staff I say a big

thank you.

Ken Ball our Assistant Football Manager, thank you I would have

been lost without you.

Our three team managers would have to be close to the best

in the business as nothing was ever to difficult Lloyd Lockhart,

Garry Rollinson and Dave Parry.

Our training and medical staff had a bit of a transformation this

year and I thank them for all their support. Headed by our Club

Doctor Anthony Sciberras, Physio Shelly Matcham and Head

Trainer Gary Seaton. To all our trainers and masseuses old and

new you did a great job in a hectic season.

Indy and Rocket the property guys again well done on a great

job. Indy your efforts in the design of the new change rooms

have been much appreciated and well received.

Our Stats team of Sean, Frank, Donna, Tonya, Ian, Jennifer and

Daniel were just terrific. Our timekeepers Dave, Ian, Terry, Pat

again come under pressure from some opposition officials but

stood fast . Thank you to the interchange stewards of Terry, Ian,

Reg and Pat I look forward to your further involvement in 2012.

Two of our players reached 150 game milestones in 2011, Josh

Roberts and Tallan Ames. This is an outstanding achievement

and life memberships well deserved. Josh and Tallan your

advice throughout the season was much appreciated.

To Brendan Parker, Ross Parker, Jim Dougan, Administration and

V Swans staff your support was much valued.

Finally to Peter Harvey and the board I would like to thank

you for your varied and continued support of the football

department.

Bring on 2012.

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK 9


Obviously 2011 was a tough year for our league side for a number

reasons and a lot of that was out of our control in terms of

injuries, freak accidents and things like that, but our entire group

from coaching staff down to the players are really determined to

bounce back strongly in 2012.

We knew going into the season that we had suffered some big

losses in terms of personnel, and it certainly wasn’t going to be

as easy as the year that passed. We didn’t expect to only win six

games mind you and at the end of the day we had enough talent

to win three or four more at least to almost finish on an even

keel.

Given what transpired over the course of the year with things

not going our way then I think 10-10, or 9-11 would have been

a reasonable result, but winning six games was unacceptable.

I suppose getting the tough year out of the way early is good

though. If you come in and it’s all bells and whistles, and nice and

easy, then you don’t work as hard.

Now we have assessed everything we’ve done, assessed every

player and we have a better knowledge of what our players

can and can’t do. We know exactly where we need to go as a

coaching staff to simplify our game style and change it to suit our

player list.

The best thing out of having a year that is unsuccessful is that

you review every aspect of your footy club, and your playing

list. We found that we need to go to a new level in terms of our

conditioning. We were uncompetitive against the best running

sides in the competition and a long way behind the rest of the

league in terms of skill level.

In terms of positives, we were able to blood so many young

players and had a look at 47 players in total, a lot of those boys

showed that they could play. We thought that Jukes, even

though in terms of endurance he’s a long way off, showed some

really good signs. If you go through the kids, obviously Coniglio,

Newman, Garlett, Howard, Gault, Boekhorst and those guys

were superb with the signs they showed.

We looked at a lot of guys and a lot of others out of the colts in

the reserves like Broad, Burnham and Marcus Adams, who came

10

COACH REPORT

GREG HARDING

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

up and played league. Those sorts of guys were the real positives

out of the entire year because it allows us to look forward and

think that if they stick around we will have a nice core group of

players who can take the club forward.

Another positive was that about four weeks out from the end of

the season a number of players were saying that they just can’t

wait for the pre-season to start. We couldn’t make the finals and

the only thing we could get out of it was not finish bottom really

and the boys were really keen to not do that obviously, and do

something that hadn’t been done in almost 100 years. We got

a lot of things wrong in terms of attitude and that thirst to jump

into a pre-season was at least pleasing. We still wanted to think

about winning games of footy over those last four weeks but at

least the boys were looking forward as well.

We’re going to have to work really hard in the gym and rehab to

get those guys up and going because it’s always hard to come up

off those major injuries. The young kid Nathan Blakeley also had

had a major knee reconstruction as did Hodge out of our colts

so they are both quality boys as well. Wes Mortin didn’t play any

games this year either, Grabski broke a foot and we need to get

that right because he was playing some great footy early in the

season. Then we have Miles, Pratt and Blight to come back as

well. We are really looking forward to having them back and fit,

and if we get them back as well as Robbo can get back to 100 per

cent then that’s a list of quite a few boys who will give us instant

improvement. I have no doubt that we can bounce back on the

back of a better attitude and sound playing list.

It would be remiss of me to go without thanking everyone that

helped not only me out during the season, but our entire team.

Cam Shepherd, Geoff Valentine, Percy Johnson, Adrian Hickmott,

Craig Callaghan and Phil Smart were all fantastic help to me in

terms of coaching. Not to mention all the support staff, trainers

and everyone who bleeds black-and-white to help out the team.

The coaching staff I had helping me out, and all of our support

staff was just unbelievable all year. There is no way that I could do

my job as coach of the team, or that the boys could even get out

on the field to play without all their support. I’m tremendously

grateful to each and every one of them.

Coming off the high of the premiership year, obviously our 2011

season didn’t go to plan but we were able to take some things out

of it, and also learn what we need to get better at, to make sure

that we are back around the mark again in 2012.

It was frustrating obviously when I hurt my wrist and ended

up missing six games before coming back for our match with

East Freo up in Karratha. Nobody ever likes watching from the

sidelines. You just want to be out there with the boys playing your

role, but at least I got back out there. I have a nice scar there to

remember it by.

Both myself and Amesy, who can now call himself a Swan

Medallist, were also able to reach our 150th games during the

2011 season and that was a massive honour.

To be a life member is something that everyone aims at achieving

in their career and it’s just recognition for all the hard work that

you put in. It takes a lot of time to earn your life membership

and to then as a result have the opportunity to come back to the

footy club once you finish your career will be something nice as

well.

I made my debut against Subiaco in 2001 and it was a long time

ago now. We got spanked that day and the club was in a really

terrible financial position, and at some stage there was within a

couple of weeks of closing the doors from all reports.

To now be able to turn that around to be one of the powerhouses

in the competition, is a great credit to the entire administration

really. The premiership is well and truly head and shoulders

above anything else. That’s what you play footy for and any other

personal achievement pales into insignificance once you get to

achieve that.

Perhaps being able to achieve the life membership, play in a

premiership and the other little things along the way always

mean a little more when I reflect back on when I started my

CAPTAIN REPORT

jOSH ROBERTS

league career here at Swans.

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

I really battled when I first came into the league side to cement

a spot. I was continually being dropped back to the twos and

ended up playing a lot of reserves footy a few years ago. That was

always in that half-forward/wingman type role and initially I got a

spot in the midfield tagging blokes. From there it was just battling

away and it probably took a change in attitude from myself that

was the catalyst that helped me improve.

There were some things for us to take out of the season for sure,

though, and no doubt that included the performances of some

of the young guys. Willy Shea came in and had an impact, and

kicked a few goals. We’ve been crying out for a crumbing forward

all season so that was pleasing. Howie is taking some steps

forward as well this season and so is Murray Newman. These

sorts of blokes more than likely get drafted anyway, but I suppose

that’s where we are at right now in a bit of a development stage

and everyone needs to improve.

Over the last two or three years there has been a number of great

young players come through. For pure skill level you can’t look

past Chris Yarran because he moves so well and from a football

sense he is fantastic. Obviously there’s also Nic Naitanui for other

reasons and even Jeff Garlett is going really well. Steve Coniglio is

also going to be a jet, I’ve got no doubt about it. He’s probably got

different attributes and characteristics as opposed to the other

guys, but he’s just a great character and leader already. He’ll go

a long way with whatever he does because of his great attitude.

Probably the worst, and in turn, best story of the year was Luke

Adams especially when he turned up for our game at Claremont

Oval late in the season. That was by far the highlight of the day

seeing the big fella there. It’s just amazing the progress he’s

made. Three months ago we were told he wasn’t going to make

it and now all of a sudden he’s up and about, walking around

and talking about playing footy next year. He’s an inspiration and

that’s all you can say.


Tallan Ames being congratulated

by President Peter Harvey

sWan Medal Winner

It is unlikely there has ever been a more passionate player about the Swan Districts Football Club than

Tallan Ames and while it was a tough year for the team in 2011, it was a massive season for the full-back

as he racked up 150 games with the black-and-whites and finished with the Swan Medal.


Ames was rock solid all season long in a defence that was under

siege and that had to deal with the absence of Wayde Twomey,

Matthew Spencer, Travis Casserly and Paul Richardson from the

premiership team of 2010, and was also without Luke Pratt after

he required a knee reconstruction.

However, Ames never wilted in his consistent form that saw him

fighting against the odds to try and repel attack after attack from

the opposition.

In the end, his form was rewarded by representing Western

Australia in the State game win over Queensland and then by

winning the Swan Medal for the first time as the fairest and best

player for the season with Swan Districts.

He claimed the award ahead of Tom Roach, Jarrhan Jacky, Graham

Jetta and Kyle Hams who were among the players to also stand

up strong in a tough season for the reigning premiers.

Given his enormous passion for the Swan Districts Football Club

having grown up in Bassendean supporting the club, coming right

through the junior ranks and now having played in a premiership

and earned life membership, the Swan Medal is something he’s

tremendously proud of.

Considering he has now played 156 games in the black-and-white

jumper, represented WA twice, won a Swan Medal and been a

premiership player, there’s no question the 28-year-old is forming

quite a legacy that will see him go down as a great of the club.

While the Swan Medal is something that Ames will always be

tremendously proud of, as will being a life member having played

his 150th game during the 2011 season, the premiership medal

of last year will always be the greatest thing he has achieved in

his glittering career.

“I do play football to enjoy the camaraderie on the field and

to feel good about playing football when you are in the rooms

afterwards,” Ames said.

“You play football to have a good time, enjoy the team spirit and

win. Any personal accolades that come through your endeavours

are an added bonus and you really play to win premierships.”

The Swan Districts Football Club means a tremendous amount

to Ames as well and it has been a massive part of his life. He also

hopes that everyone else associated with the club has got plenty

out of watching everything he has now been able to achieve in

his career.

“Every player wants to achieve 100 games at a club and to have

the opportunity to keep on going to play 150 of course it’s the

next milestone in the rack,” he said.

“The Swan Districts Football Club is very close to me both in terms

of physically and emotionally, and any time I pull the black-andwhite

jumper on up to 150 games and beyond is special to me.

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

“Hopefully everyone that is associated with Swan Districts enjoys

me pulling on the jumper as well because it is a great place to

be around, and it has given me some great opportunities for 11

years to when I started playing colts football.”

Ames was also proud to reach the 150-game mark in the same

season as captain Josh Roberts, and now the pair are sure to

continue on towards 200 games, and given their form and age

there is no reason they both can’t get there.

“Once you get to 150 games, just like in anything, you have to set

some goals and mine is to definitely reach that 200 mark,” Ames

said.

“Travis (Edmonds) played his 250th game in one of my early years

and I know that in today’s football it is going to be very hard to

get to 200 but I aspire to do that. It’s a goal that makes you keep

persevering and I will give it my best crack. I think Josh is thinking

the same as well.

“We’ve both been through a lot together and it’s a credit to the

club for finding the roles that we are comfortable to perform at

our best in. I guess it’s a credit to us as well to stick at it through

some hard times and really getting on board the good times to

make sure we make the most of it.”

ROUND BY ROUND WRAP

ROUnD 1 – Steel Blue Oval

loss to east perth 16.11 (107) to 18.14 (122)

Swan Districts premiership defence saw it fight

back from a 15-point quarter-time and sevenpoint

half-time deficit to play an outstanding

third term to lead at the final change, but East

Perth finished the stronger to win by 15 points.

Before the game commenced the 2010

premiership flag was unfurled and raised up

the flag pole on centre wing in front of the

members. Last year’s premiership coach Brian

Dawson was on hand along with President

Peter Harvey. Also on hand were members of

the 1961 premiership team as they celebrate

the 50th anniversary of that triumph.

As for the game itself, even without Ashley

Hansen and with Adam Hunter having to

spend time down back to counter East Perth’s

potent forward-line, Tony Notte and Tim

Geappen provided good targets for Swans.

Notte finished with four goals and Geappen

three. Fremantle rookie Clancee Pearce was

the standout performer of the day for Swan

Districts, though, as he collected a team-high

25 possessions, took 15 marks and kicked two

goals.

ROUnD 2 – Claremont Oval

Loss to Claremont 12.7 (79) to 17.16 (118)

Swan Districts started the grand final rematch

on fire opening up a 15-point quarter-time

advantage, but by the last term the Tigers took

control and kicked six goals to one to win by

39 points.

Jarrhan Jacky put in a strong display in just

his second game with Swan Districts with

four goals from 15 possessions and six marks.

Geappen booted four goals and Notte added

two with Hansen still to return. Tom Roach

worked hard for 22 possessions while in

the back-line veteran Tallan Ames was good

defensively as usual, and also did well picking

up 22 disposals and taking 12 marks.

RoUND 3 – Arena Joondalup

loss to West perth 13.8 (86) to 15.13 (103)

While Swan Districts went down to West

Perth by 17 points to slip to 0-3 to start their

premiership defence, 17-year-old Dayle Garlett

was impressive on debut at league level with

three goals.

There were other positives as well with Hansen

returning from a hamstring strain to play his

first game of the season and to kick two goals.

The newest signing by the club, Kyle Hams, a

16

106-game and dual premiership veteran from

South Fremantle, lined up in the reserves and

looked good with 19 possessions.

Captain Josh Roberts was simply outstanding

with a game-high 35 possessions. Roach

continued his strong start to the season

collecting 32 disposals with defender Luke

Miles having 28 touches and Pearce 22. Alex

James lined up against the team he played 23

league games with over three seasons and did

well to finish with 23 disposals, six marks and

a goal.

ROUnD 5 – Steel Blue Oval

Loss to Sth Fremantle 13.10 (88) to 17.10 (112)

South Fremantle opened up a match-winning

lead of 35 points by three quarter-time, and

even though Swans were able to boot five goals

to three in the final term South Fremantle was

still able to run out 24-point winners.

Roberts couldn’t have done any more to

try and inspire his team and he was terrific

finishing up with 39 possessions, six marks,

four tackles and an incredible 13 inside-50

entries. Roach had 29 possessions and Pearce

was again a good contributor with 26 disposals,

16 marks and five inside-50s. Graham Jetta

(22 possessions), Jacky (21) and Miles (20) all

worked hard in an under-siege defence, while

Ames was outstanding restricting ex-Docker

Ryan Murphy to just one goal.

Ben Colreavy, Hansen and Geappen all did

what they could up forward and kicked three

goals each. Kyle Hams had a good battle with

his twin brother Ashton as they played one

another for the first time. Swan Kyle had 17

possessions trying to curtail Ashton’s influence,

and he had 21 touches and a goal.

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

ROUnD 6 – Steel Blue Oval

Win over Perth 18.12 (120) to 10.11 (71)

Swan Districts put on an outstanding team

display to beat Perth by 49 points at Steel Blue

Oval in front of a good crowd on Anzac Day to

record a first win for the 2011 campaign

Swans got off to a blistering start with three

goals in the game’s opening six minutes and

then dominated the second half with 14 goals

to Perth’s five.

Roach led the way with 38 possessions and

10 marks with his run and carry too much for

Perth to be able to handle. Captain Roberts was

brilliant with 33 possessions and Fremantle’s

Pearce also had it 33 times to go with 13 marks

and a goal. Ames held the defence together

as he has all season so far and completely

blanketed former Port Adelaide centre halfforward

Damon White.

Geappen kicked five goals and Wolfenden

bounced back from being dropped last week to

be terrific in a new role up forward. Aitchison

showed as well that he deserves a regular

league spot not only collecting 23 possessions,

but restricting dangerous Demon Aaron Elari

to just 10.

ROUnD 7 – Bendigo Bank Stadium

Win over Peel thunder 16.13 (109) to 15.15

(105)

Swan Districts did it the hard way to beat

Peel Thunder at Mandurah’s Bendigo Bank

Stadium, but six goals to two in the last quarter

saw them home by four points in a thriller.

Peel dominated the third quarter with six goals

to one to lead by 26 points at the last change.

However, Swans booted five quick goals to

take the lead, but then Peel hit back to regain

the advantage. The frantic final minutes,

though, turned in the reigning premier’s

favour and Geappen kicked the winning goal.

Colreavy was brilliant all afternoon for Swan

Districts in what was likely his best game with

the club since crossing over from Claremont

at the start of the 2009 season. He booted six

goals in a career-best effort, but also racked up

26 possessions. Geappen also kicked four goals

and Hansen three. Pearce again led the way

with 28 possessions, 10 marks and four entries

inside-50. Roach had 26 disposals, six tackles

and six inside-50s. Jetta was superb with 25

disposals also as he gave the team tremendous

run. So did Jacky who finished with 23 touches

and a goal.


ROUnD 8 – Medibank Stadium

Win over East Perth 15.14 (104) to 12.12 (84)

Swan Districts overcame one of the toughest

weeks imaginable to put in a tremendous

performance to beat East Perth by 20 points.

With young ruckman Luke Adams never far

from the minds of everyone involved with the

Swan Districts Football Club, the team came

out to Medibank Stadium to Saturday with No.

21 wristbands on in his honour and beat East

Perth.

Hansen had struggled to kick straight with

10.11 over his first four games of 2011, but

turned that around impressively with eight

goals. Geappen also kicked three goals, and

Brett Robinson and Wolfenden two each.

Roach had 31 possessions while Roberts

overcame a nasty head clash to still pick up

26 disposals. Miles also had 21 touches, Matt

Riggio 21, Stephen Coniglio 20, Ryan Davis 18,

Hams 18 and John Williams 17 while doing well

on Hamish Shepheard.

ROUnD 9 – Steel Blue Oval

loss to Subiaco 11.7 (73) to 18.10 (118)

After an even first half that saw Swans trailing

by just a point at half-time, Subiaco gained

control after the main break with 11 goals to

four to run out 45-point winners.

It was a big day at the Bassendean venue,

though, with a tremendous show of support

to try and reclaim Perth’s violent streets by

taking a stand against alcohol-fuelled attacks.

More than 5000 people turned up to Steel

Blue Oval, including Police Commissioner Karl

O’Callaghan, bashed policeman Matt Butcher

and Gary and Kaylene Adams, the parents of

victim and Swan Districts’ 19-year-old ruckman

Luke.

It was also a big game for inspirational Swan

captain Roberts who was celebrating his 150th

WAFL appearance for the black-and-whites.

He tried his hardest once again all afternoon

on Saturday up against Subiaco and picked

up 27 possessions, laid five tackles and had

five entries inside-50. Jacky continued to build

some form in his first season at Swan Districts

with 27 touches also. Hams had 26 disposals

as well with Coniglio fighting through a tag to

pick up 23 touches and kicking a goal. Miles

was outstanding in defence not only giving

good run and drive with 25 possessions and

seven marks, but also affecting seven spoils

and driving Swans’ inside-50 on four occasions.

(cont) ROUND BY ROUND WRAP

ROUnD 10 – East Fremantle Oval

Loss to East Fremantle 12.10 (82) to 13.10 (88)

Swan Districts just fell short of coming back to

beat East Fremantle, eventually losing to the

Sharks by six points despite kicking the only

goal of the last quarter.

Jetta provided continued strong run all day

against the Sharks to finish with 25 possessions,

11 marks and five tackles. Ames again was one

of Swans’ best in the back-line as was Luke

Miles who also picked up 22 possessions.

Davis had 21 disposals, Hinkley 21 and a goal

in his second league game of the season,

Riggio 20, and Jacky 19 to go with four entries

inside-50. Simpson played his first league game

since Round 2 this season and put in a good

showing with 20 possessions, five marks, eight

tackles, three inside-50s and a goal.

Geappen kicked three goals to lead the way up

forward for Swans with Roach getting down

and adding two also.

ROUnD 11 – Steel Blue Oval

Loss to Claremont 14.11 (95) to 17.13 (115)

Swan Districts took it right up to Claremont in

a grand final rematch at Steel Blue Oval but in

the end the Tigers prevailed by 20 points.

Swan Districts’ day was made all the tougher

with two early injuries though. With Roberts

already out coming into the game with a

broken wrist, Miles and Hunter found their day

over in the first half.

Given they were down to 20 men early on in

the contest and Claremont is recognised as

the best running team in the competition, it

was a good effort by Swan Districts and likely a

performance that would have won if it wasn’t

against a quality side like the Tigers.

Riggio stepped up for Swans to pick up 23

possessions and lay 13 tackles. Roach also

picked up 20 touches, Hinkley 19 and Robinson

18. Notte was outstanding at centre halfback

with 19 disposals and 10 marks while

Jetta provided plenty of run and drive with

22 touches, Hams had 19, Jacky 19 and Davis

17. Hansen was a welcome return and booted

seven goals from 11 touches and eight marks.

ROUnD 13 – Fremantle Oval

Win over South Fremantle 22.8 (140) to 18.15

(123)

Swans came out firing from a week off to put

in its best performance of the 2011 season

to beat third-placed South Fremantle by 17

points.

Simpson showed all his quality, toughness and

goal sense in what was likely the best game of

his career. He picked up 29 possessions, took

11 marks, had six entries inside-50 and booted

five goals.

Geappen also kicked four goals with Hunter,

Brett van Groningen, Colreavy and Hansen all

booting two apiece.

Roach was outstanding in the midfield picking

up 30 possessions, Jacky picked up 27, Outridge

24, Robinson 23, Jetta 20 and Riggio 20.

Lammie was terrific in the ruck as well in the

absence of Llane Spaanderman. He had 19

possessions, took eight marks and had 38 hit

outs in a strong performance in just his 25th

league game.

ROUnD 14 – Steel Blue Oval

loss to West perth 7.13 (55) to 15.14 (104)

Swan Districts couldn’t quite continue on its

strong form from before the State game break

with top-of-the-table West Perth winning at

Steel Blue Oval by 49 points.

Hansen provided a terrific target up forward

all day with 19 possessions, 10 marks and he

ended up kicking 4.4. Simpson was once again

terrific as well with 25 disposals, eight marks,

11 tackles and five entries inside-50.

Riggio worked hard through the middle to

finish with 25 touches as well and Jacky had

23 possessions and laid eight strong tackles.

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK 17


ROUND BY ROUND WRAP (cont)

James returned to the league side for his first

game since Round 5 and did well to pick up

21 possessions. Jetta also had 19 possessions,

Roach 18, Faulkner 17, Hams 17 and Robinson

17. Ames did all he could from full-back to

finish with 16 touches, five marks and 12

spoiling efforts.

ROUnD 15 – Brownes Stadium

Win over Perth 16.8 (104) to 12.8 (80)

The reigning premiers improved to a 5-8 record

with a 24-point win that saw Swans virtually

control the game from the outset in one of the

team’s best performances of the 2011 season

to date.

The game featured an exciting sight for

Swan Districts as well with Robinson putting

in his best game since undergoing a knee

reconstruction that he had the LARS surgery on

early last year. The dynamic midfielder finished

Saturday’s game with 36 possessions, six

marks, seven tackles and four entries inside-50.

Geappen also showed his very best form up

forward and made up for Hansen going off late

in the first half with an ankle injury. Geappen

had 24 possessions, 10 marks, six tackles and

five goals. Steve Potente came in to play his

first league game of the season and was a

strong contributor with 15 possessions, six

marks and three goals.

Roach was also terrific in the middle with 26

disposals, Jacky had 25, Hams 23, Riggio 21,

Hinkley 20, Jetta 19 and Williams regained

some touch with 19 touches.

18

Lammie carried the ruck well with 19

possessions and 26 hit outs. Brett van

Groningen was strong defensively laying 12

tackles and Justin Simpson continued his

ferocious approach with 11.

ROUnD 17 – Steel Blue Oval

loss to peel Thunder 9.16 (70) to 21.7 (133)

Five players going down injured certainly didn’t

help Swan Districts’ cause of winning in Tallan

Ames’ 150th game with the black-and-whites,

and in the end Peel Thunder went away with

the four points.

The defence was under siege against the

Thunder for most of the afternoon, but

150-gamer Ames was rock solid as always and

Hams stood tall often against taller opponents

to play a tremendous game. Jetta was also a

strong contributor before hurting his knee late

in the match.

There were also encouraging signs in the youth

in the form of Newman and Garlett. Newman

finished with 17 possessions, seven marks and

a goal, with Garlett doing well for 15 touches,

seven tackles, five inside-50 entries and a goal.

Lammie battled hard all day in the ruck up with

Hinkley picking up 26 possessions, Pearce 25,

Jacky 23 and Roach 22.

ROUnD 18 – Medibank Stadium

loss to Subiaco 6.7 (43) to 20.19 (139)

Despite the exciting return of young gun

Coniglio, it was a disappointing day for Swan

Districts at Leederville’s Medibank Stadium

with Subiaco coming away with a convincing

victory.

Coniglio played his first league game with Swan

Districts since Round 9 and he was superb with

27 possessions. He had some good support

from Pearce (24 possessions), Hinkley (20) and

Outridge (18).

Simpson worked hard as well with 16

possessions, three inside-50s and a goal while

youngster Newman showed some exciting

signs as well with 13 touches, five marks and

two goals.

RoUND 19 – karratha

Loss to East Fremantle 11.7 (73) to 27.13 (175)

Roberts made a strong return from his wrist

injury in Karratha, but in the end East Fremantle

proved too strong for the black-and-whites at

Kevin Richards Memorial Oval.

Roberts worked tirelessly in his first game back

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

from his wrist injury since Round 10 finishing

up with 27 possessions, seven tackles and two

inside-50 entries.

Roach also picked up 26 disposals to go with

six inside-50s and a goal. Jacky picked up 25

possessions, seven marks, six tackles, seven

inside-50 entries and a goal. Simpson worked

hard as well for 18 touches, seven tackles and

two inside-50s. Fourth-gamer Garlett showed

some exciting signs also with 22 possessions,

six marks and six inside-50s.

ROUnD 21 – Claremont Oval

Loss to Claremont 14.5 (89) to 21.17 (143)

Swan Districts put on a much-improved

showing from its previous three games against

the top-of-the-table Claremont despite the

eventual 54-point loss with the black-andwhites

without doubt spurred on by the

inspirational presence of Luke Adams all

afternoon at Claremont Oval.

Roberts was outstanding in just his second

game back from his wrist injury to pick up 26

possessions, take seven marks, lay eight tackles

and drive the ball inside-50 on four occasions.

Roach also found some of his best form picking

up 25 possessions and providing tremendous

run and drive. Jacky also picked up 17

disposals, Outridge 17 and Parry 17. Hams

worked hard in defence as he continued his

rock solid first season with Swan Districts. He

had 22 possessions and Jetta returned to pick

up 17 also in defence.

Hansen worked tremendously hard up forward

all day for Swans also and finished with 15

possessions, five marks and four goals.

ROUnD 22 – Steel Blue Oval

Win over South Fremantle 17.9 (111) to 12.11

(83)

Swans came out fired up to make a statement

and coach Greg Harding had done that at

selection coming into the game picking Harvey,

Jukes and Adams to all make their debuts.

They all made a strong contribution as well and

by half-time Swans led the Bulldogs by six goals

and even though that margin had been cut to

just two by three quarter-time, the black-andwhites

kicked away again to win by 28 points.

Roberts was once again tremendous in the

middle with 28 possessions. Jacky had 27

possessions as well with Hams gathering 25

disposals in defence and Roach 23 through the

middle.


Hansen was outstanding up forward with 23

possessions, 13 marks and four goals. Geappen

also booted three goals and Justin Bollenhagen

added two in his first game since crossing from

Perth.

ROUnD 23 – Steel Blue Oval

loss to West perth 7.12 (54) to 13.14 (92)

In the last home game of the 2011 season at

Steel Blue Oval, West Perth proved too strong.

There were some strong performers, though,

with Jacky racking up 26 possessions, taking

nine marks and kicking a goal. Jetta worked

hard all day long to finish with 25 disposals and

eight marks as well.

Roberts had 23 disposals and kicked a goal,

Roach gathered 22 possessions, Hams 21 from

defence, Aitchison 18 and Simpson 18 to go

with a goal. Alex Howard was solid in defence

with 17 possessions and six marks. Jukes had

16 disposals, five entries inside-50 and kicked

a goal as well. Marcus Adams had 15 disposals

and took six marks. Garlett gathered 15

(cont) ROUND BY ROUND WRAP

possessions and kicked a goal as well.

ROUnD 24 – Brownes Stadium

loss to perth 12.17 (89) to 14.10 (94)

Swan Districts narrowly missed the chance to

finish the 2011 WAFL season on a high going

down in a thriller to Perth by five points at

Lathlain’s Brownes Stadium.

Swans came into the clash blooding two more

exciting debutants in the form of Boekhorst

and Gault, and the black-and-whites controlled

the majority of the contest until the Demons

were able to prevail. At the other end of the

scale, Colreavy played the final game of his

senior football career that saw him play with

Claremont, Sturt and now Swan Districts.

He made a solid contribution as well with 14

possessions, five tackles, five inside-50s and a

goal.

Gault made an especially strong debut with

the young big man finishing his first league

appearance with 17 possessions, seven marks,

eight hit outs and a goal. Roach finished off his

strong season for Swan Districts as well with

27 possessions. He received good support

through the middle from Jacky who had 21

possessions, Newman who had 21 and laid five

tackles to go with five inside-50s, and Roberts

who had 21 disposals.

Jetta worked hard for 20 possessions, four

tackles, two inside-50 entries and a goal.

Manton came in after some good form in the

reserves and made a strong contribution with

17 disposals, eight inside-50s and a goal.

Hansen and Geappen kicked three goals each

and at the other end, Howard continued to

shine in defence with 19 possessions, 10 marks

and five spoiling efforts.


The 2011 season once again saw Swan Districts strongly

contribute to Western Australia’s squads whether it be in the

State game victory over Queensland or the State 18s, 16s or 15s

teams at the respective national carnivals.

In the WAFL’s State clash with Queensland, Jetta, Geappen and

Hansen all represented WA for the first time, and Roach and

Ames for the second as Western Australia beat the Maroons

16.17 (113) to 16.11 (107) at Mandurah’s Bendigo Bank Stadium.

The WA team was also coached by Swan Districts premiership

maestro from last year Brian Dawson with help from Adrian

Hickmott, and former Swans players Adam Lange and Matthew

Carr.

There was certainly a strong Swans presence in the thrilling

victory and all five black-and-whites players on the day put in

strong performances.

Ames was unlucky to miss out on the game against Victoria last

year, but made up for it in his first appearance for WA since playing

against South Australia in Adelaide in 2006. He was superb at

full-back shutting out dangerous Queensland spearhead Darren

Ewing completely and being rock solid holding the back-line

together.

Jetta joined him in the back-line and provided some good run off

half-back as well and finished the game with 17 possessions to

have equalled the feats of his younger brother Lewis from 2009

by playing in a winning State game for WA.

Roach played for WA last season in the loss to Victoria and he

had previously represented the Big V in a loss to South Australia,

so he finally got his wish of playing in a winning State fixture. He

finished with 31 possessions and having four entries inside the

forward 50.

Geappen started the game on the bench, but with the forwardline

struggling early in the game he came on and had an

immediate impact. He kicked the first goal for WA of the day at

the 18-minute mark and then added a second early in the second

term when he snapped truly.

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

Hansen booted two goals in as many minutes to start the second

quarter and both were clever, skilful snaps around his body. He

continued to work hard and kicked his third late in the game in

what turned out to be WA’s last goal of the day.

The day doubled as the official opening of the $9 million

redeveloped Bendigo Bank Stadium and a terrific crowd of over

3000 people turned out despite the wintery conditions to end up

seeing a contest.

The victory kept WA’s undefeated run over Queensland alive but

it wasn’t without a scare. The Black Swans led by 50 points eight

minutes into the last quarter, but Queensland then kicked seven

of the last eight goals from that point to lose by just a goal.

Swan Districts was also well represented in the State 18s, 16s

and 15s teams, with Stephen Coniglio the highlight as captain

of the WA 18s team, All-Australian and Larke Medallist. He was

honoured to win the Larke Medal and that it was something he

would cherish for a long time.

“I would have loved to have won this medal having won a

championship, but not all things can be. I’m really happy to

receive the award though.” Coniglio said.

COACH REPORT

CRAIG CALLAGHAN

It was a rough season for the reserves in 2011, much like the

league side, where the injury toll filtered down and had a big

impact on our depth and we had to soak that up as well. In the

end, we only won five and-a-half games, but more importantly a

lot of guys got a chance to move up to make their league debuts

and a big part of your job as reserves coach is to promote the

kids.

In the back end of the year, it was great to see a lot of the colts

guys stepping up into both the ressies and league teams. With

some of the older blokes helping them out on the field as well,

we got some form going towards the end of the year and we even

won three of our last five games, and could have done even better

than that, so it was nice to finish off with some momentum. Not

only winning, but guys like Corey Gault and Blain Boekhorst came

in to have a massive impact. Considering the two games we lost

in that last five weeks was against the two grand final sides as

well, we were playing pretty good footy by the end of the year.

As a reserves coach, it really does depend on the team you have

on what your focuses are. If you have a good team that you think

is capable of winning a premiership, then of course your main

goal is to win games, but it’s also a responsibility to develop

players. I was always mindful of getting guys ready for ‘Stiffy’ and

for them to be ready for league footy, especially considering the

tough first year he had as league coach. You really do have to

make sure guys are ready to take the step up and it was great to

see guys like Matthew Jukes, Dylan Harvey, Simon Parry, Adam

Faulkner and Corey Gault make that jump.

I even pulled on the boots again late in the season against Peel

Thunder when we had a bye in Waroona. Just to wear the blackand-white

jumper again was a fantastic feeling and it was another

game that we should have won. We led by about four goals

at three quarter-time and were down to one fit bloke on the

bench with them having one extra with Mitch Brown dropping

back from the Eagles. I just love teaching the young kids and it’s

great to be able to do that out on the field. It’s what I try to do at

Waroona and it was a great chance to do it at Swans and get out

there to show them what I was talking about.

The young kids who received chances in the ressies and then

the league side really were the highlight of the year for me.

Boekhorst really did show enough to suggest he’s going to be

a player. Gaulty I just loved from the start. He could have even

played league footy earlier but there was a lot of ruckmen there

going all right, but it’s great to see him get drafted I couldn’t be

happier for him. It will be awesome to see him play in the AFL

now for Collingwood. Jukes certainly has the capacity to be a

league footballer and Johnson is another one who has a lot going

for him. Ryan Smith had a great year too and can definitely make

the step up along with guys like Faulkner, Rod Manton and Parry.

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank the whole Swan

Districts Football Club for the opportunity to coach at the club

that is such a big part of my heart. Thank you to the Board, to

Greg Harding, Geoff Valentine and everyone who provided me

with such great support. The whole support staff is just fantastic

and our runner Darren Lake, who had to do it on his own for a

lot of the year, deserves a special mention. He was sensational.

All the trainers are fantastic and then there is Indy and Rocket.

Rocket especially looked after us ressies and we couldn’t do it

without any of them people.

It has been a pleasure to be involved in a coaching role at the

Swan Districts Football Club and I’m sure I will see you all around

the club plenty in the future with my three little kids running

around!

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK 23


In terms of the win-loss record in the colts we weren’t great and

we finished seventh, but that’s not the greatest concern of mine.

We got to blood some young colts into the reserves towards the

end of the year and then into the league side as well, which was

good for the footy club.

The reserves had been getting convincingly beaten, but then they

had a good finish when we pushed some young kids up. Blain

Boekhorst and Corey Gault then went on from that and got a go

in the league side.

From that, I got to push up some 16s kids into the colts. We

got beaten by about 100 points in the last four games, but the

experience they got from playing in the colts system will hold

them in good stead going forward.

With the colts there were about 20 top age players who will go

up into the reserves and league now. We played 67 players in the

colts during the year and 27 of those were the top age kids, and

26 were young bottom age kids,” he said.

Then we played 11 of them who were 16 as well so the majority

of them will be eligible for us again in the colts next year so that’s

impressive.

You can see why coaches do this job because they get to see

the young players progress up into the AFL or into WAFL league

football. The process is pretty impressive.

The role is most definitely to develop these guys to play elite

WAFL footy and hopefully stay at Swan Districts for 10 to 15 years

if they don’t get picked up by an AFL club in some form.

If they do get rookie’d or drafted it’s an added bonus to that.

That’s the challenge with a diverse young group of players to play

with that flair, excitement and confidence to then be able to be

looked at to be drafted.

Just personally, it was a big move for myself, my wife and three

kids to move over to WA, but we love it. The weather and the

grounds make for a good football environment there’s no

COACH REPORT

ADRIAN HICKMOTT

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

doubt about that. The motivation from young blokes and their

confidence to play a good open style of footy is helped by that.

It’s a great place to coach because of that reason as well.

I just love the group of guys who I got to work with in the colts

team. There is such diverse backgrounds and cultures with our

players. I’ve been coaching for eight years and it’s the most

experience I’ve had in terms of players coming from diverse

backgrounds and cultures. That includes them coming from

divorced families, young Aboriginal guys who are having kids

themselves and ones who even live by themselves together in a

house to support other kids.

In that area it is also a lot about helping to develop them off the

field and then the game day is when I let the guys go. It’s exciting

to see the development in that area and definitely when they get

chosen for state 18s and then the next step is reserves or league,

and then if they perform in those teams that is when you think

you’ve done a good job and that they are a young men playing

good footy. When they change the game that is another massive

thing. If they go into a team and can change the outcome of a

game, like what happened in the reserves, then that is impressive.

Young guys like Corey Gault lives with his mum and has brother

and sister. He started training with the league squad when I first

got here and then seeing his progression into the colts’ season

and to now, has been great. He is just a fantastic listener. Our

job as coaches is to help these guys along the way to build their

motivation to come to training and to go to university all the

time or whatever it is they do. The top aged guys have either

moves into the university or work environment, so to build the

motivation is the challenge. With that, they become confident

so we set them some achievable goals throughout the year. One

of Corey’s goals was to play state football or get into the state

squad, which he achieved, and throughout the year he kept

getting better. He is very consistent with his football, but he’s a

fantastic trainer. He is motivated to come down here and train

hard, and it’s not by luck that all of a sudden he can play with

confidence. He is just one of a number of examples that I could

use to highlight just how far our group of young men came along

over these last 12 months.

16’s DEVELOPMENT

Swan Districts 16’s Development Side entered the carnival with

a young and energetic combination and came out the other

side mature, committed and much improved in all area’s. Swans

played matches against East Perth, Claremont, West Perth, South

Fremantle and Perth.

Finishing with a 3 win, 2 loss record was very satisfying for all

concerned but more importantly the development and in a

number of cases the dominates shown by the players and the

group was very exciting.

The carnival provided Josh Dann, Jaycob Conigilio, Herman

Humphries, Laurence Grescos, Richard Abraham and Sam

Garstone the opportunity to be selected and play state football

for Western Australia. This is an outstanding achievement to have

6 State players selected, congratulations to the player’s, their

families, coaches and Football Clubs that have worked with and

supported these boys so far in their careers.

Further more to the state selections Herman, Laurence and Sam

have been selected and taken up their opportunity to be at the

AIS Academy.

From the program, following on from pre-season where some

of the highly talented 16’s trained with the colts, the well

performed players were then invited back to do more training

and preparation with the colt’s side. Again to the boys talent and

opportunity a number of them were selected to play colts level

football and acquitted themselves very well.

Some notable players to do this were Josh Dann, Jaycob Conigilio,

Jack and Mitchell Harrold, Ben Whitsed, Herman Humphries,

Mitchell Gill, James Austgen, Laurence Grescos, Sean Olliver,

Richard Abraham, these players and others will make for a very

good nuclease for the future years at the Swans.

There needs to be a very big thank you to all the coaches and

support staff and manager involved with the 16’s this season, also

the parents need to be thanked for their support and dedication.

The Swan Districts Football would also like to thank and

congratulate all those involved, and cannot wait to see this group

of 16’s come through and wear the mighty black and white.

16s DEVELOPMENT SQUAD

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK


15’s DEVELOPMENT

EARLY

After the success that came from a year long approach with the

15’s program for the first time in 2010 saw us adopt the same

plan for the 2011 development program which allowed the club

and coaching staff to extensively identify the talent within our

district and develop throughout the season.

Starting in March we had ninety plus young footballers at steel

blue oval looking to be a part of this exciting system. Training one

night a week throughout the whole year allowed coaching staff

to identify talent at community level on weekends and extend

invitations for them to join the group at training during the week.

As we headed towards the business end of the season the

coaching staff became aware of just how talented the group was,

which saw the introduction of the 15’s rookie squad for the first

time. The rookie squad was designed to allow players that were

fractionally on the outer, who in previous years would have been

involved in the final squad to continue with their development

through the whole program and push for a place in the 16’s

program.

As some results in the carnival didn’t quite go the way we would

have liked, I believe the style of football we played at times was

exciting moving forward towards the under 16’s in 2012. This was

LATE

Overall we had nearly 90 boys participate in our program which

had us train together as one group from day one (early and lates)

right up until virtually the last week leading into the carnival

which in turn gave the boys the opportunity to develop their

competitive skills whilst forming bonds and friendships that in

some cases will remain for the rest of their lives.

Our focus throughout the carnival revolved around talent

identification and player development (even though our boys

were highly competitive) and dominant displays against both

Subiaco and East Perth featured strong defensive actions within

the group and an ability to win more than our fair share of ball

which when combined meant we leaked very few goals and

managed to convert well.

The trip to Bunbury to compete against our South West “partners”

was probably the highlight for me as we were all excited to watch

the talent on display in particular an outstanding first half from

the South West boys who took a 19 point lead into the major

break. Fortunately we produced a scintilating last half that saw

us pile on 11 goals but full credit to the South West team and

without doubt the winner on the day was football and a special

thank you to Bunbury for their support and professionalism.

28

show cased when we took a combined 15’s side down to Bunbury

to compete against a South West all stars side. The Swans 15’s

after being down by a few goals at the main break piled on 11

goals to 1 in the second half.

Bill (15s Lates coach) and I would like to congratulate Chris firns,

Aidan Anderson and Lindsay Murray on their selection in the WA

state schoolboys squad for 2011 and also Dino ross, Dylan nelson,

Warrick Wilson and Eric Snook on their selection in the Under15’s

WA indigenous squad. After exciting carnivals, Dino, Dylan and

Warrick saw them earn a spot in the flying boomerangs squad

which will fly to Fiji in December.

Last but not least a huge thank you must go to the swan districts

football club and especially Adrian Hickmott for providing me

with this opportunity this season. A huge thankyou must go to

all coaching staff, support staff and team manger Rick Anderson

who eased the load tremendously throughout the carnival.

I look forward to continuing working with these young footballers

again in late 2011/ 2012 with the 16’s program.x

Coach: trent Davies

Our final game against the highly credentialed South Fremantle

saw a tough “see sawing” battle where the added pressure

tested our skill execution and whilst we eventually went down

by a small margin it taught us some valuable lessons that we can

take forward into the U/16 program due to commence in early

2012 and beyond.

A special, thank you to all of the players – parents - and indeed all

who embraced and supported the program and indeed the boys

this year – and a special thank you to the Coaching Staff and Team

Manager Rick Anderson who did a stirling job.

I would also like to thank the Upper Swan Football Club who

allowed us to use their facilities whilst Steel Blue Oval was under

repair and were ambassadors to the Swan Districts Football Club.

All in all an extremely successful year and we take this opportunity

to wish the boys every success both in both their sporting and

personal lives in the future.

14’s DEVELOPMENT

EARLY

The 14s squad was put together immediately after the regular

season with approximately 90 boys being invited to try out. This

group trained for around 4 weeks before being trimmed to two

squads, earlies and lates, with both squads having around 33

boys in each.

My first observation was the outstanding attitude of the boys

concerned, all pretty competitive rivalries from the community

season were forgotten and they were keen to work hard on the

skills being taught by the coaching panel. They thrived on the

Swans environment, structure and core values being espoused

by Adrian Hickmott and Steven Thomson.

As Steel Blue Oval was unavailable, the home games were played

at Baskerville oval in Upper Swan. The first game against Subiaco

was a close hard fought game and the boys did a fine job adapting

to new game plans and coaches.

The second game was in Bunbury at the very large Ken Hands

oval and this was a magnificent effort from the team who worked

hard but went down by a couple of goals.

LATE

The Carnival was played at Baskerville Oval due to Steel Blue

being unavailable being re-dressed. Baskerville provided a nice

setting for football, along with fine weather, fast conditions and

some very competitive football.

The 14’s lates were drawn to play against Subiaco, South West,

East Perth and South Fremantle. They played a very competitive

match against Subiaco and come away with a good victory.

Their 2 nd match we travelled to Bunbury to play the

South West. The home side were to strong and powerful

for the Swans on the day, but the Swan’s boys picked

up alot of good experience and enjoyed the challenge.

The 3 rd game against East Perth was one way traffic, with the

Swan’s dominating all game.

Their final hit-out against South Fremantle was a classic contested

of the highest quality, with the game being decided on the last

kick of the match. South kicked a running goal right before the

final siren to snatch the victory.

30

The next 2 games against East Perth and South Fremantle were

again both close and hard fought with the team teaming together

and showing that they were able to play in positions all over the

ground.

Many of the boys in this side have distinguished themselves with

outstanding individual performances over the carnival. I found

the entire set up to be very professional with the co-operation

between coaching groups great and the umpiring fantastic.

The feedback that I have received from parents and spectators

was also very positive and I know the players enjoyed the

experience.

Coach: Barry O’Kane

Some of the players of the future that played well through-out

the carnival were Timmy Yorkshire, Joshua Cipro, Jarrod Shorter,

Nelson Waite, Brendan O’Kane, Lyric and Jarrah Duckett, Mitchell

Panabianco, and David Cox.

David Cox was clearly the dominate forward of the carnival and

has a very big future in the game of football, well played Coxy.

The complete squad of lates were a pleasure to work with, and

alot of these boys have big future’s in the game.

A big thank-you and well done to all the support staff and

managers for their input and expertise through-out the carnival.

Also a thank you to the Baskerville Oval organisers, a super job.

The Swans District Football Development Council (SDFDC) took

some great strides this year in terms of Primary Schools, Modified

Rules, Senior Community, Female Football and AFL 9’s. Whilst

club-based Auskick participation dropped from 1,292 to 1,208,

the Swans District is starting to turn things around with several

new community-based Auskick centres popping up at childcare

centres, churches, schools and temples in Kalamunda, Pickering

Brook, Stratton and Swan View.

SCHoolS

Primary School participation dipped in the Eagles Cup due

to monetary and transport considerations, but this dip was

balanced out by solid numbers in Eagles Faction Footy. The

district is developing a Freo Dockers Shield program for schools

in the hills to offset the travel costs associated with the Eagles

Cup. The district is designing a district-specific school manual to

pinpoint the key programs and services supplied by the Swans

District.

The district is also putting the final touches on a series of Primary

and Secondary School PD sessions geared towards enhancing the

programs delivered by AFL School Ambassadors at both Primary

and Secondary Schools. The Freo Dockers Cup was one of the

district’s biggest success stories with 13 teams participating in

this increasingly popular school girl’s competition. The 14-team

STS Cup 8/9 Boys competition went from strength to strength

with Darling Range Sports College pipped at the post by Trinity

College in the Quarter Finals. Whilst, the STS Cup 8/9 Girls fell

short of one team, the popularity of Freo House Footy should

boost our Secondary School participation in 2012.

CoACHINg

The district continues to strengthen its coaching stocks on the

back of a series of successful coaching programs with 245 Level

1’s, 18 Level 2’s and 2 Level 3’s now coaching at junior and senior

level. The district successfully piloted the Generation Y Coaching

Academy, which is geared towards developing the skills and

philosophies of the next generation of coaches. The district is

looking to expand its suite of programs into the development

of the SDFC Coaching Academy for junior and senior clubs. The

district is looking forward to greeting its new coach coordinator

in 2012 to host quarterly meetings and monitor our game day

environment.

MANAGER’S REPORT

ISAAC STEWART

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

ClUBS

The district benefited from a surge in the number of modified

teams in 2011, due to the growth of several clubs including Mt

Helena JFC, Parkerville JFC and Swan View JFC. The number of

youth teams declined due to the loss of teams at Forrestfield

JFC, Midvale JFC and Upper Swan JFC. But, it wasn’t all doom

and gloom with Darlington/Parkerville JFC introducing a new

17’s side to strengthen an already strong 17’s competition. The

district is devising several strategies to boost participation in the

youth segment including possible linkages to AFL 9’s and greater

multicultural engagement.

It was a momentous year for the senior clubs with Wundowie

FC being installed in the Hills Football Association (HFA) and the

WAAFL continuing its impressive expansion. It promises to be

bigger and better in 2012 with the potential birth of a new club

in Parkerville and the expansion of Forrestfield JFC into WAAFL

Colts. High Wycombe FC continues to build on the success of

Integrated Football with the special needs program now gaining

more traction in the media and the broader community.

The profile of the Quality Club Program continued to grow with

14 clubs reaping the benefits of reaching Bronze, Silver and Gold

Level. Chidlow JFC, Chittering JFC, Forrestfield JFC, Mazenod JFC,

Mt Helena JFC, Mundaring FC, Parkerville JFC, Pickering Brook FC

and Swan View JFC all attained Bronze Level status in 2011. Whilst

Upper Swan JFC was the first to make it to Silver Level, SDFC has

set the benchmark for the rest of the district with Gold Level. The

district placed a bigger focus on club development this year with

strategic planning seminars being held at more than 12 clubs. The

development of a strategic plan is a key part of Silver Level in the

Quality Club Program. The district is planning to schedule a Club

Development Night in May to provide education to your office

bearers on several subjects including cultural awareness, local

government relationships and social networking.

UMPiRES

The Swans District Junior Umpires Association (SDJFUA) has

retained a strong core of highly skilled umpires despite the

overall decrease in umpiring numbers. Whilst a solution to the

decreased umpiring numbers remains elusive, some solace

can be taken from the fact that 7 new green shirts joined the

umpiring pool together with the recruitment of 40 new club

umpires through the piloting of the Parent Umpire Program. In

2012, the district is planning to develop a series of club-based

satellite programs to filter more umpires down to the SDFJUA

and reverse this downward trend in umpiring numbers.

nEW MARKEtS

The Swans District is leading the way in terms of the development

of community programs for Indigenous boys and girls. The

district in partnership with V Swans successfully completed two

programs in 2011, the Maali Academy and the Yorga’s Academy.

The Maali Academy utilised mentors from several community

organisations to deliver key educational messages relating to

drug, alcohol and crime awareness, health and nutrition and


espect for women and the community. The programs saw more

than 60 males and females, aged 9 to 18 register to play in the

Swans District Junior Competition and the Swans District Youth

Girls Competition.

The district also developed a special needs Auskick program

for males and females with down syndrome and sustained

brain injuries to promote greater accessibility to football for the

disabled community. The district will continue to support the

expansion of the Integrated Football Program at High Wycombe

FC in 2012.

AFl 9’s

Participation in our newest segment increased dramatically in

2011 with more than 120 kids participating in the AFL 9’s Swan

Valley Cup at Baskerville Reserve and it looks set to continue its

meteoric rise in 2012 with several new programs being developed

for Female Football and Senior Community.

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK 33


AFL DRAFT SUCCESS

THE Swan Districts Football Club has continued its outstanding

production of young talent at today’s NAB AFL Draft with Stephen

Coniglio, Murray Newman and Corey Gault all being selected by

three different clubs.

Coniglio was taken by the Greater Western Sydney Giants with

selection No. 2 in the draft with the West Coast Eagles selecting

Newman at No. 23 and then Collingwood picking up Gault at 65.

The result of having three players selected in the national draft

continues the recent success that Swan Districts has had of

providing players to the AFL system, which has included Nic

Naitanui, Chris Yarran, Todd Banfield, Jeff Garlett, Clancee Pearce

and Lewis Jetta just in the last three years.

With the prospect of several other players being closely looked

at in next month’s pre-season and rookie drafts as well, the

work that the Swan Districts Football Club has put into its

talent development programs in recent years is clearly paying

handsome dividends.

Coniglio signalled his star potential back in 2010 when he moved

seamlessly into league WAFL football by starring in Swans’

premiership victory alongside Andrew Krakouer in the one-point

grand final win over Claremont.

He has gone onto captain Western Australia at this year’s

national 18s carnival, win the Larke Medal as the best player of

the tournament and at just 17 years of age, has shown that he

is an elite league footballer in his 11 games with Swan Districts.

Newman is an incredibly naturally talented footballer with

lightning speed and outstanding skill, but throughout the second

half of 2011 he really came on in leaps and bounds by earning a

regular spot in the league side.

The 18-year-old played eight games in the end, averaged 13.5

disposals a game and kicked seven goals to show that he is more

than capable of matching it with men.

Nothing but sheer hard work was behind ruckman Gault ending

up drafted to Collingwood. The 19-year-old 198cm big man was

dominating colts and reserves football by the end of the 2011

WAFL season earning himself a league debut.

Coniglio has been touted as a top draft pick for more than 12

months and after the natural sportsman decided for football

ahead of a potential cricket career, he was delighted to be taken

with the second pick and to end up at the Giants under Kevin

Sheedy.

“I feel fantastic. It’s a lot of months of build-up to the draft and

to finally get it over and done with, and seeing who was the No.

1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 pick, and it’s a massive honour to be part of that,”

Coniglio said.

“It’s going to be tough for us for the first few years, which has

been pointed out across the footy circle, but I think that in three,

four or five years we’ll see the rewards. The set up they’ve got

and the people at Greater Western Sydney is pretty exciting.

“It has been my dream to play AFL and I’m ready to move over,

and get stuck into pre-season training now.”

50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE

1961, 1962, 1963 PREMIERSHIPS

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK 39


2011 brought another successful year for female football at

Swan Districts Football Club and the Swans District, with over

540 female participants who took part in the ever growing Swan

Districts female football pathway. Females now represent 13.5%

of football in the Swans District.

From all girls Auskick programs, to Junior Girls and Youth Girls

competitions, the development and progress of these young

female athletes is now evident when coming through the

pathway into the Senior Women’s Team and Under 19’s preseason

competition known as the “Rogers’ 20/20 Cup”. Fourteen

current and former Youth Girls played in the Senior Women’s

Team this year, 5 of them playing at the highest club level in

Premier Division.

Promotion tools such as all girls football clinics in schools are

conducted throughout the year, the clinics vary depending

on the school. In the Swan Districts zone over 18 schools both

Primary and High school were influenced by at least one all girls

clinic. A further 19 schools benefitted from mixed boys and girls

clinics, varying from year 1’s through to year 7 classes. Each clinic

promoted the different types of football including the female

football pathway available to the individual.

Good Shepherd Primary School participated in an all girls

Auskick program which supports our youngest female football

stars. It provides them with the opportunity of afterschool

Auskick sessions, a great program that engages girls in a basic

understanding of football and an easy way to have fun with

friends; it also prepares and promotes them for the Swans Junior

Girls Competition.

The 2011 Dockers Cup Carnival, which is an all girls Primary

School Football Carnival, went off with a hit, 13 primary schools

participated in the exiting tournament. The 250 participants

wore their school jumpers with pride, some never having the

opportunity to wear one like their brothers or the boys at their

school would. The teams were split into a Hills division and a

Flats division, hosted by Bassendean Junior Football Club’s very

own Jubilee Oval which catered for the 6 ovals that were needed.

The girls had a great time and the competitiveness side came

out in the final rounds, but it was Midvale Primary that won the

Flats Division and Mundaring Primary School that won the Hills

Division Dockers Cup. Each girl left with a smile and left some

wanting to play it as a sport with the Junior Girls Competition

which started the following week.

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

52 new female participants between the ages of 8-12 years joined

the Swans Junior Girls Competition this year. The girls thoroughly

enjoyed the 7 week competition, each girl left with a medallion,

a smile and at least one new friend. Many comments from both

parents and players sad that it hadn’t last longer.

Feelings from the Swans Youth Girls Competition were much the

same as the Junior Girls wishing a longer competition or longer

games, some players so eager they played two matches. The

Youth Girls Competition mirrored the Junior Girls, with a 7 week

competition, except Finals were introduced. Some outstanding

players impressed the coaches, supporters and left the Swan

District Men’s League Team astonished as they looked on from

the other end of the oval. The Grand Final was an exciting match

to watch, but it was Midvale that came out on top of the Yorga’s

Maali Academy.

From the Swans Youth Girls a handpicked 24 talented players were

chosen to represent the Swans District against 10 metropolitan

and country zones in a Youth Girls Carnival, swans being named

the best Metro team. These girls can then hopefully follow into

the Under 19’s Pre season competition for 2012.

At the beginning of 2011 the Under 19’s Pre-Season competition

known as the Rogers’ 20/20 Cup run by the WAWFL, was created

to generate a competition for brand new players to the game,

a stepping stone for them to gain confidence into the WAWFL

season. Swans entered a team full of brand new players; most

had never touched a football in their lifetime. 80% of these girls

signed up under the Swan Districts Banner to join the Women’s

Team.

The Swan Districts Women’s Team recorded 65 players alone

this year, 25% of players come from Indigenous background. The

Women’s Team is made up of two Divisions, a Division 1 side co

coached by former All Australian Women’s player Angela Doyle

(Business Development Manager) and current State 18’s Youth

Girls Head Coach Megan O’Mara, who worked positively with the

girls enhancing their development as players and their skill level.

The Premier Division team was coached by WA Women’s State

Head Coach and All Australian Coach, Nicole Graves (General

Manager – V Swans). Graves is also currently the only female

in the Nation that holds a level 3 AFL coach accreditation. Our

Reserves (or Division 1) team was coached by Angela Doyle who

also works at the club as Business Development and acting CEO in

the later part of 2011. Angela has played 3 sports at International

level including, Touch Football, Gaelic Football and International

Rules, she was also All Australian in 2009/10 so brings a massive

amount of experience to the group.

Angela comments on the year gone by and her involvement.

“The 2011 Division One team was a year of improvement.

With such a new and young group of players the girls fought

hard throughout the season with plenty of positives to take out

into 2012. Our young stars to the game shared their skills and

enthusiasm with the group.”


“The Swan Districts Female Football pathway has proven

to be a success, having brought 8 former youth girl players

into the Division One side this year alone. Some of our young

talented players were recognised at the Swan Districts Women’s

Presentation Night later in the year, Savanna Schimmel, only 14

years old, won the Best and Fairest for Division One, otherwise

known as the Helen Wheeler Award. I look forward to coaching

the Premier League next year” Angela Doyle, Division One,

Head Coach

Nicole reflects on the Premier Division team.

“The women’s team have come a long way in the last 5 years and

seen a considerable transformation in the players competing, we

have a great female pathway at the club now and the women’s

team is the greatest beneficiary with 9 players competing in the

WA State senior women’s team, and 5 in the under 18’s state side

we have the perfect player pathway for any girls wishing to play.

So we as the coaches are the lucky ones being able to have such

great female athletes joining the team each year.”

“Ange will coach the senior side in 2012 as work commitments

stop me continuing at this stage but I know she will again take the

team that one step closer (1 point would help!!!) to the ultimate a

Premiership and i will be cheering from the sidelines!”

nicole Graves, Premier Division, Head Coach.

Swan Districts Football Club is a proud supporter of female

football, engaging the community at all levels, no matter what

age, culture or gender. The Club’s commitment to female football

endeavour’s to increase participation in competitions, coaches,

umpires and administration roles as well as providing a strong and

healthy environment and culture for our future female athletes.

continued to see a stabilised human resource environment and although the second half of 2011 saw

considerable management change within the SDFC organisation the latter part of 2011 bought a V Swans

restructure that will allow considerable growth and a new deliberate communication structure to secure

long term sustainability and delivery to the programs and partnership with our key stakeholders.

In the following pages is a snapshot of some of our key partnerships and programs and I would like to

thank all our staff, corporate and government sponsors in 2011 and in particular the program participants,

their families and their communities for the support they give us in being able to deliver quality programs

and capacity to build happier communities.

V SWANS (cont)

NeW V SWANS STAFF AND THeIR RoleS IN 2011

Some of the human resources changes in 2011 included Chris

Lewis relocating to Hedland to deliver the Kicking Goals program

in the early part of the year; however he was replaced in June

by Kicking Goals teacher Avneil Swami after taking on another

employment position in the region. Chris was replaced by Av

Swami a former Kicking Goals teacher in Hedland and Av has

filled those shoes fantastically in the later part of the year and we

look forward to great things in the region in 2012.

We wish to thank Chris for his six years of service to the program

and look forward to him continuing as a program ambassador.

Peter Matera also changes his role with V Swans in late 2011

taking a management role with his brother in their company

Matera 3, again Peter will continue to be a valuable ambassador

to V Swans in key programs.

Former Swans Player Danny Penny joined the team in early 2011

and has quickly taken the front seat as V Swans Metro Regional

Manager where he oversees the key metropolitan programs

including the New Horizons Prison Program, our successful

Maali Academies and other community based initiatives, he also

oversees the management of our V Swans Development Officers

that support the District staff in growing the game within our

region.

We also put on a full time events coordinator and business

development support role into the Pilbara region with Bec Pianta

joining the team in June. This role delivered the Celebrity Vets

partnership with Chevron Australia, this initiative sees 3 new staff

in the Onslow region of the Pilbara and deliver a 6 day a week

multi sports and community development program that including

football and basketball to fishing and gardening programs for the

region.

Finally the new staffing structure was complete with Clint

relocated to the Pilbara and has been very busy in developing

new football initiative in the region, working closely with the

Western Desert, North Pilbara and West Pilbara Junior football

Our flagship programs saw over 220 students in Hedland and

Newman SHS participate in our fully integrated curriculum based

education program. Highlights saw an average attendance within

the program continue to grow with Indigenous Kicking Goals

student attendance at 72% in Newman 39% higher than their

whole school Indigenous attendance figures. In Hedland the

program again grew to deliver to over 160 students (Almost 1/3

of the entire school population) and also deliver for the first time

into a year 11 curriculum.

‘The students in my class that are a part of the Kicking Goals

program have been a pleasure to teach. Throughout the year

there has been improved attendance by these students and an

improvement in their attitude towards their studies and there

behave in class. My Year 9 girls in particular have become

motivated students who are more involved in their community

and are aspiring to go on to further education whether that be

University, TAFE or apprenticeships. The program has been of

great benefit to these students and I encourage them to continue

with the program next year’

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

He treated the students individually with care and respect and

the students responded accordingly.” (Vanessa Reeve, Year 5/6/7

Class Room teacher Ashfield Primary).

“I thought the balance of theory and practical sessions was

excellent. Alternating weeks seemed to work very well. The

planning and preparation that went into the V Swans program

was very good. The content of the theory was motivating and

was delivered very well. The scoring system enabled me to

motivate students to improve (attendance / behavior) and Paul

developed great working relationships with our students and was

able to get them on task quickly and efficiently. “The students all

mentioned that their favorite session was when the South African

Team came to the school to talk to the students and coach them.”

Peter Freeman, Deputy Principal, Midvale Primary School

nEW HORizOnS PROGRAM

The V Swans New Horizons program is a personal development

program which provides pathways to football, education and

career opportunities. By completing program components and

adhering to program guidelines, participants are then eligible to

compete in the Swan Districts football team which competes in

E1 Division of the WAAFL competition.

Through mentoring and support, this program promotes social

and physical wellbeing to all participants and encourages them to

be a positive role model for other inmates and be a model inmate

themselves. It also serves to produce a smoother transition back

into the community as support continues beyond the Prison.

38 participants were selected for the program. 7 participants

were removed from the program due to disciplinary breaches

at the Wooroloo Prison Farm. A further 5 participants were

added mid program. 36 participants completed the 2011 new

Horizons program.

inDiGEnOUS MAALi ACADEMiES

The program, in partnership with several community

organisations including the City of Swan, Midland PCYC and the

WA Police, will educate participants about drugs, crime and

alcohol, health, nutrition, injury prevention, goal setting, selfesteem,

and respect for women and the community.

The Maali Academy is dedicated to developing the individual

as a good community member and the importance of healthy

lifestyles and participation and getting the young Aboriginal men

back into structured community football clubs and competitions.

SiStER PROGRAM: YORGA MAALi ACADEMY

This program was delivering in partnership with the Office of

Crime Prevention, PCYC and the WA police – it differs from the

male academy and supports the following life skill objectives

delivered through a series of workshops:

• Education – Attendance and behaviour.

• Mentors/Support – Provide a strong support/mentor person

for the group.

• Health – To improve self esteem, hygiene, confidence and

body management.

• Relationships – To have the ability to build a strong bond

amongst the group for ongoing support and mentoring.

• Culture Link – To build a strong family link and respect of

culture and heritage

• Police – To have a better understanding and to build a strong

relationship with the police (Break that stigma barrier).

• Goals – To set positive goals with girls and achieve them.

The Maali Academy is a commendable project which uses

mentors to promote physical activity and deliver education

messages relating to nutrition, drug and alcohol prevention and

injury prevention. I wholeheartedly support the development

and implementation of this project, which is run by V Swans in

conjunction with the Swans District. Any project which uses

sport as a community engagement tool is to be encouraged and

fostered. Ken Wyatt MP, Member for Hasluck

The City of Swan would like to express its support of this initiative

which offers opportunities for life skill development through

football to targeted young Indigenous people in the area. A

program that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of

participants through goal setting, the use of mentors and working

with culturally relevant and current role models will engage large

numbers of participants and in particular disadvantaged young

people. Charlie zannino, Mayor, City of Swan

It was good for the young people to be exposed to workshops

that they would not have otherwise had the opportunity to be

involved in. V Swans did a great job with the workshops and skills

sessions and the young people that attended the Maali Academy

have grown in confidence and self-belief of what they can do. To

me that is the value of the program. Well done to all involved.

John Mogridge, indigenous Youth and Community Projects

Officer, City of Swan

The Maali Academy has become an integral part of a holistic

approach to youth programs for youth at risk in the East Metro

Police District, in particular the Midland Sub-District. The fact

that there were a high percentage of regular attendees indicates

that the key messages are getting through and the participants

are serious about making a positive difference to themselves

and their environment. From a crime prevention perspective, I

see the Maali Academy as a true example of changing people’s

48

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

outlook towards crime and criminal behavior. The building of

self-respect through the Academy will stand these young men in

good stead for when they are faced with making critical decisions

in their lives. I am very eager to see the Academy flourish in the

future and continue its life-changing work. I hope I can assist in

whatever way possible. ian Westmore, Project Coordinator,

2011 not a year to remember following the great success we

had last year, coach Greg Harding had to endure player loss from

2010 along with a string of season ending injuries to a number

of key players along with the disruption caused by the callous

life threatening attack on Luke Adams. Let’s hope that after the

numerous operations Luke has had he will be able to resume a

normal life.

So let’s look forward not backwards in season 2012

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

Our annual colt’s dinner was held on the 11 th May & attended

by players, support staff & parents. Thanks to George Stamenich

we again had his cooking skills to the delight of all in attendance.

Guest speaker Jarrhan Jacky captivated and motivated the colts

and gave an insight to what was required should they aspire to

progress up to League or AFL levels.

Halftime League Fraternization

Once again the halftime fraternization was very successful,

thanks to Agnes Preedy who again supplied the catering for all

home games.

The liquid refreshment donors were John, Ross & the late Mick

MiD SEASOn MERV HAnSEn & ARtHUR tHORntOn

lUNCHeoNS

MRt

Bruce Lauder set up this team 3 years ago to assist with regular

club maintenance on the 2 nd Tuesday of the month.

Thanks to the following Graham Ashworth (Ashworth Office

Fittings) for the supply of chipboard when required

Also to the M.R. team Bruce Lauder, Jim Craig, John Holland, Keith

Michaelson, Marcel Weggelaar, Ken Ashworth, & John Rowe.

Apart from our usual sprucing up of the club; painting cleaning

and replacing and painting the timbers on a number of seats in

front of the members club etc. our major project was the removal

of carpet and its replacement in the sponsors lounge. This was

an arduous task for our aging workforce but never the less; we

managed to get it done.

Please contact Bruce if you would like to be part of the team, you

don’t need to be a tradesmen but it certainly would help.

gATe RAFFle

The raffle again raised adequate funds during the season even

though we only had six in total, thanks to Don & Herb Smith for

heading this up and also to the raffle sellers. We will again use

this tactic next, so please help out.

VAle

It is sad to report the loss of a number of club stalwarts during the

year; Norm Davis, Ron Payne, Bill Cocks, Ray Till also the wives of

Jim Craig “Maree”, Lance Bell “Rae” and Keith Farrell “Norma”

we will certainly miss them all. We extend our deepest sympathy

their respective families on the sad loss of their loved ones.

In closing I would like to thank my committee for the ongoing

support over the past 15 years as President, it has been most

gratifying to have worked alongside a great bunch of loyal and

dedicated members of the Swan Districts Football Club.

The Swans Past Players Facility is the envy of all the W.A.F.L. Clubs

and something to be proud of. On or off the field We, I believe are

the leaders and with a bit of hard work will stay up front.

To Secretary Jim & Treasurer Bruce you made the job easy to carry

out and I wish my successor all the best for the future. It would

not be complete without a special thanks to the bar personal,

Jo Taylor along with George Stamenich and Lucy. Thanks also to

Brendan Parker (CEO) resigned, & Angela Doyle (Acting CEO) also

the Office Staff, Jim (Jimbo) Dougan, Jenny McBride and Rochelle

Parker for their cooperation over the past year.

John Rowe, President (retired)


SWANSMEN INCORPORATED REPORT

COMMittEE OF MAnAGEMEnt

The 2010 Annual General Meeting saw the re-election of Peter

Snow as President and with new appointments of Graeme

Ashworth (Vice President), Steve Bakes (Secretary) and Graeme

Higgins (Treasurer). Colin Trigg, Jason Abbott and Bob Hutchinson

did not seek re-election for those three positions. Continuing on

the Committee were Neville Bassett, Rod Greene and Roy Jewell

who were joined by Curly Marshall for the retiring Ian Thompson.

SUppoRTINg THe ClUB

In the year to 31 October 2011, Swansmen Inc. made a direct

contribution of $30,000 to the Club and more than $15,000 in

indirect contributions. These included appliances by way of a

new hot water system and washing machine.

MEEtinGS

Leith and Carole Putland generously opened their exquisite

Wembley home for the Annual Planning Seminar which was well

attended and an ideal setting for the three hour business session

followed by a casual dinner with partners.

The Seminar also resulted in the formation of a joint Memorabilia

Sub-committee with the Past Players & Officials Association to

develop and implement a comprehensive plan to enhance and

expand the display of Club memorabilia over the next few years.

A quality schedule of dinner meeting guest speakers whose topics

were as diverse as their backgrounds was a feature of this year’s

program - most of whom were arranged by tireless (or should we

say TyrePlus) Rod Greene.

SWAN DISTRICTS FOOTBALL CLUB 2011 ANNUAL REPORT & YEARBOOK

As a thank you to the Club’s on-field support staff, the Swansmen

hosted them and the player group with a burger night addressed

by the Club’s 2011 WAFL Hall of Fame inductee and triple Swan

Medallist, Duggan Anderson. The Swansmen are most grateful

to Club support staff Ken Ball and Lloyd Lockhart who arranged

and cooked the 200 burgers with the cost covered by a raffle of

seafood donated by Kim Rylands of Global Seafoods.

A second event for players and support staff was a panel show of

past premiership players from the early premiership eras of the

60’s, 80’s and 1990 - compered by Andy Holmes.

plAYeR AUCTIoN & plAYeR AWARDS

Our traditional investment in players continued this year with the

Swansmen securing Group 9 and a half interest in Group 15 with

a bargain bid made in conjunction with Ross McDonnell of Astute

Security. The latter group of many AFL and all other un-listed

players produced a tidy dividend that increased the pool of funds

for player awards.

The Swansmen again sponsored the Ted Holdsworth Goal Kicking

Award and maintained weekly player awards for all grades

in 2011, adding an extra $500 in Restaurant vouchers partly

subsidised by Mille Café.

SWAnSMEn LOUnGE BAR

Under Lounge Manager Roy Jewell with assistance from Curly

Marshall, Ron Dawson and Peter Bacon, the Lounge Bar showed

a commendable 21% bottom line increase.


FUnD-RAiSinG

The move of the Auction to post-season to avoid clashing with

other Club events was a detrimental factor and yielded a lower

result than hoped. However, the new format of reduced (25)

main auction lots, coupled with entertainment, made the

afternoon very enjoyable for those who attended. Special thanks

to all donors, MC Andy Holmes, Auctioneer Scott Willis from

Manheim-Fowles, Fuji Xerox Australia Pty Ltd (Jason Abbott) for

printing the catalogue, Lee Higgins and Sue Greene for logistical

support and Mike Elezovich for his brilliant Austin Powers

performance with his beautiful assistant Felicity.

However, the AFL Grand Final Raffle and inaugural Melbourne

Cup Raffle were successful and partly offset the lower Auction

result.

LiFE MEMBERSHiP FOR SECOnD GEnERAtiOn ABBOtt

When the late Alec Abbott introduced his son Dave to Swan

Districts it commenced a long and passionate involvement in the

affairs of the Black Ducks. Apart from serving on the Club Board,

Dave has had a long association with Swansmen – taking on many

roles that lacked nominees. Secretary (2000-2007), a reluctant

President in 2009 and, with son Jason and daughter Natasha,

Dave was a familiar figure behind the bar in the Swansmen

Lounge for several years and richly deserved life membership.

VAle

During the year we lost one of our members with the untimely

passing of Craig “Jimmy” Crotty at only 48. Jimmy was a fixture

with friend Richard Mann alongside the John Nicholls gate in

front of the Swansmen’s Lounge at home games and will be sadly

missed.

THANk YoU

Thanks to all members, Club staff and Board members who

helped during the year. Particular thanks to Treasurer Graeme

Higgins on his diligent role and also to the rest of the Committee.

Congratulations to Joyce Allen on her efforts that raised more

than $5,000 for MND in WA through the Chevron City to Surf Fun

Run. It was pleasing that many Swansmen and guest speaker

Lindsey Smith were able to help this wonderful behind the scenes

worker for both Swansmen and the Football Club.

Independent Auditor Report

to the members of

SWAN DISTRICTS FooTBAll ClUB (INC)

RepoRT oN THe FINANCIAl RepoRT

We have audited the accompanying financial report, being a

special purpose financial report, of Swan Districts Football Club

(Inc.), which comprises the statement of financial position as

at 31 October 2011, and the statement of income, for the year

then ended, a summary of significant accounting policies, other

explanatory notes and the committee’s declaration.

tHE RESPOnSiBiLitY OF tHE COMMittEE FOR tHE

FINANCIAl RepoRT

The Committee of the club are responsible for the preparation

and fair presentation of the financial report and have determined

that the accounting policies described in Note 1 to the financial

statements which form part of the financial report are appropriate

to meet the financial reporting requirements of the constitution

and are appropriate to meet the needs of the members. The

committee’s responsibility also includes establishing and

maintaining internal control relevant to the preparation and fair

presentation of the financial report that is free from material

misstatement, whether due to fraud or error; selecting and

applying appropriate accounting policies; and making accounting

estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances.

AUDIToR’S ReSpoNSIBIlITY

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the financial report

based on our audit. No opinion is expressed as to whether the

accounting policies used, as described in Note 1, are appropriate

to meet the needs of the members. We conducted our audit

in accordance with Australian Auditing Standards. These

Auditing Standards require that we comply with relevant ethical

requirements relating to audit engagements and plan and

perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the

financial report is free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit

evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial

report. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s

judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material

misstatement of the financial report, whether due to fraud or

error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers

internal control relevant to the association’s preparation and

fair presentation of the financial report in order to design audit

procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not

for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness

of the association’s internal control. An audit also includes

evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used

and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by the

committee, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the

financial report.

62

The financial report has been prepared for distribution to

members for the purpose of fulfilling the committee’s financial

reporting

under the constitution. We disclaim any assumption of

responsibility for any reliance on this report or on the financial

report to which it relates to any person other than the members,

or for any purpose other that that for which it was prepared.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient

and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

INDepeNDeNCe

In conducting our audit, we have complied with the independence

requirements of Australian professional accounting bodies.

QUALiFiCAtiOn

The Club, in common with other similar organisations, only

records amounts received relating to voluntary activities when

these amounts are banked as it is not practical to establish control

over such income, prior to its initial entry in the accounting

records. Our audit relating to such income was therefore limited

to ensuring that the amounts banked are properly recorded in

the financial

statements. Accordingly, we do not express an opinion on

whether all receipts have been banked and we cannot determine

the effects of such adjustments, if any, as might have been

required had this limitation not existed.

AUDIToR’S opINIoN

In our opinion, except for the effects, if any, of the matter referred

to above, the financial report gives a true and fair view of the

financial position of Swan Districts Football Club (Inc.) as of 31

October 2010 and of its financial performance for the year then

ended in accordance with the accounting policies described in

Note 1 to the financial statements.

1. SUMMARY OF SiGniFiCAnt ACCOUntinG POLiCiES

(a) Basis of Accounting

The financial report is a special purpose financial report prepared in order to satisfy the financial reporting requirements

of the Associations Incorporation Act of WA. The committee has determined that the club is not a reporting entity.

The financial report has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Associations Incorporation Act of WA

and the following Australian Accounting Standards

AASB 1031 Materiality

AASB 110 Events after the Balance Sheet Date

AASB 117 Leases

AASB 119 Employee Benefits

No other applicable Accounting Standards, Australian Accounting Interpretations or other authoritative pronoucements

of the Australian Accounting Standards Board have been applied.

The financial report has been prepared on an accruals basis and is based on historic costs and does not take into account

changing values or, except where specifically stated, current valuations of non - current assets.

The following material accounting policies, which are consistent with the previous period unless otherwise stated, have

been adopted in the preparation of this financial report.

(b) Property, Plant and Equipment

Depreciation on Buildings and Club House Improvements is calculated on a prime cost basis so as to write off the net

cost of the fixed assets over its expected useful life of 25 years. It is anticipated that existing Buildings and Club House

Improvements will be fully written off by 31st October 2022.

Depreciation on Plant and Equipment is calculated on a diminishing value or prime cost basis so as to write off the net

cost of each fixed asset over its expected useful life.

(c) inventories

Inventories are valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value.

(d) leases

Leases are classified at their inception as either operating or finance leases based on the economic substance of the

agreement so as to reflect the risks and benefits incidental to ownership.

Operating leases

The minimum lease payments of operating leases, where the lessor effectively retains substantially all of the risks and

benefits of ownership of the leased item, are recognised as an expense on a straight line basis.

Finance leases

Leases which effectively transfer substantially all of the risks and benefits incidental to ownership of the leased item to

the club are capitalised at the present value of the minimum lease paymentsand disclosed as motor vehicles under lease.

A lease liability of equal value is also recognised.

Capitalised lease assets are depreciated over the shorter of the estimated useful life of the assets and the lease term.

Minimum lease payments are allocated between interest expense and reduction of the lease liability with the interest

expense calculated using the interest rate implicit in the lease and charged directly to profit and loss.

(e) Employee Entitlements

Provision is made for annual leave estimated to be payable to employees on the basis of statutory and contractual

requirements. Vested entitlements are classified as current liabilities. The contributions made to superannuation funds by

the Club are charged against profit.

(f) income tax

The Club is not subject to income tax and as such there is no provision for income tax payable
