Ellenbrook Eels

Senior Football Club
RSS icon Email icon Home icon
  • Welcome

    The Ellenbrook Eels Senior Football Club was established in 2002 on the back of initial interest from three local residents Vaughan Roberts, Ben Franks & Troy Newick. The Club competes in the West Australian Amateur Football League (WAAFL) with 3 senior teams and the colts team. The Masters (over 35's) play every second Sunday and are a vital part of our growing club.

    With Ellenbrook being such a young suburb in the Swan Valley, the club prides itself on being a “family based club” with regular events including family gala day, Auskick half time matches and the Saturday night family dinners.

    The Club is based at the Ellenbrook District Open Space, Maffina Parade, Ellenbrook.

    2011 was the clubs 10 year anniversary and yielded the clubs first flag with the reserves taking out the C4 Reserves Grand Final. This was backed up in 2012,2014 & 2017 with the club claiming the C3 reserves flags. The colts became flag winners as well in the 2016 West Coast Eagles Colts division.

    It’s a big few weeks leading into the Easter Long Weekend before round 1 – the league co-captains have been selected (congratulations Matt Craig & Duncan Rodger) and it’s time to stake your claim for a spot over the coming weeks. The feeling from the playing group has been really positive and the new recruits are settling in well. If you haven’t hit the track yet or have only appeared sporadically, it’s now time to get amongst it.

    Due to ground unavailability, there will no longer be a camp – this has been replaced with a intraclub scratch match followed by a family BBQ and drinks.

  • 2017 President’s Report – Andrew Coxall

    Posted on October 26th, 2017 Whitey No comments

    Well another season has come and gone and 2017 was a season of contrasts in many ways.
    On the field, we had another relatively successful year, with all 4 senior sides making finals once again (and the mighty masters remained undefeated – once again!) and the Reserves bringing home another flag to pin on the wall for the club.
    Unfortunately for our league side it was a case of history repeating itself once again and while it hurts just as much as any other preliminary final we have lost recently, I have great hopes for this young group to take this club forward. In years gone by it has been the ‘old guard’ trying to drag our club from C3 into the higher grades and where they failed, I have every confidence that our young eels will drive us forward and take us where we want to go.

    Our Colts and thirds sides were under the pump from the very start of the year and with unfavourable fixturing, it made it extremely difficult for the rest of the club to see the boys in these sides play each week. This is something the club is hoping to rectify for season 2018 as with the facility that we enjoy – there shouldn’t be any reason for the WAAFL to split our club up each week!

    I am very proud of the fact that our club managed to put the wheels in motion to have women’s side play football under the eels banner in 2018. In July this year we entered a side into the WAFC Senior Women’s Community Carnival – with only a week or so recruiting, we managed to have 16 ladies don the Eels Guernsey in 3 games on a Sunday afternoon – including two wins!! What a credit to the girls, considering the majority had never kicked a footy in their lives! I am so excited to have Dezzi Giles on board from 2018 as our Women’s Football Coordinator. Dez is an athlete through and through and her passion for the game is an asset to our club – we are looking forward to the challenge ahead!

    Off the field the Eels enjoyed a very successful year and I cannot thank my executive committee enough for the support and advice they have offered me in my first term as president. Without good help, it just would not be possible to run the club in an efficient manner.

    Personally this year was a steep learning curve and to be honest, When I first put my hand up last year, I did not fully understand how big of a job this role actually would be, I am sure I made some mistakes however and should I be re-elected for the 2017/8 season I will be much better prepared for the challenges that lay ahead.

    In signing off I would like to thank you all for the opportunity to lead our club in 2016/17 , I have enjoyed the role and learnt so much about not only myself but about many others as well. I hope you all enjoy your ‘offseason’ and I look forward to (hopefully) leading our great club for the 2017/18 season.

    Andrew Coxall
    2017 Ellenbrook SFC President
