After holding the Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 7th December at the WAFC offices in Tuart College, AFLMWA is pleased to announce 2 new Board members and one existing Board member joining the Board for the next 3 years. Congratulations to Trish Medwin, Joe McCarthy and Mick Osborn, who were unopposed and are all strong candidates with differing skill sets that will make a solid contribution to the running of the Association going forward. A special mention to the exiting Board members and their partners, it’s never an easy job volunteering, and to Vic Tomlinson and Dave Castle, thank you for what you have brought to the table and to the impact you have had on the Association. Both have contributed not only at Board meetings but on game days, and with the State sides and hopefully you have enjoyed your experience on the Board. Best of luck with your future endeavours. It needs to be said that these guys have been backed up by some amazing partners who put up with a lot throughout the last three years, thanks also to Jane and Leanne.
In a first for AFLMWA, this year a new female club has applied, jumped through every hurdle and the Board wishes to welcome the Carlisle Vic Park Ducks to the association in 2022, to play in the women’s competition.
In the southwest competition, an application has been reviewed from a second Albany club (The Titans) and currently we are working through exactly how the club will fit in to the Southwest competition. We also have the addition of a Manjimup team who will align with Northern Warriors in 2022, to give them a helping hand to grow and develop in their area.
In terms of metro mens clubs, for information the Southern Saints are relocating from Maddington to Canning Vale with an alignment with Canning Vale to assist recruiting and club longevity. Two formal applications were received as per the requirements of the Constitution from an existing Perth Football League club in Mosman Park and an existing junior club Hammond Park who are branching in to Seniors. The board have met with both clubs and believe both would be suitable for inclusion in the 2022 metro competition. Mosman Park Redbacks play from Tom Perrott Reserve, and will bring a Supers aged side into 2022. Hammond Park Hurricanes play from Botany Park and in one of the biggest growth areas in Metro Perth have plans for a Supers and Masters side in 2022, and potentially a woman’s side in 2023.
Please reach out and welcome to the Association the Carlisle Vic Park Ducks, the Manjimup side, the Albany Titans side, the Mosman Park Redbacks, and the Hammond Park Hurricanes. Hope you enjoy your Masters experience in 2022 and beyond.
