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 with the club claiming the C3 reserves flags.

Grand Final – Ellenbrook 9.10– 64 defeated Secret Harbour 6.6 – 42 @ Kingsway Reserve
FUN, ENJOY, HARDWORK, AWESOME, TEAM just some of the words that sum up the 2016 Ellenbrook Senior Football club Colts and after all their hard work this season they are the West Coast Eagles Colts 2016 PREMIERS!
What a day the 10/09/2016 was without sounding cocky, when I arrived at Kingsway Reserve at 08.40am and saw a number of Ellenbrook colts there waiting I thought to myself we are on today, we are definitely on!
Their voices in the change room and the way they warmed up was second to none, you could feel the vibe of excitement and not just for the boys who were playing but for every player that got us to the GF. From the time we went out to the centre circle for a chat the look on the boy’s faces was the look of a team that knew they had made to a Grand Final and they were not going to let this slip away because of all 46 players who had worked so hard to get the team to a GF whether they played one or 20 games. I really felt it was important to talk about and remember the players who helped the team get to the Grand final.
I think as a club we forget just how young our colts are and that this bunch of boys have been through so much over the past couple of seasons and I only hoped that I could help them reward themselves this season and they did.
Their mental toughness, mateship and bond has been tested at times but they have always rallied together to get the job done in some great contests throughout the season and again I couldn’t be prouder of the boys.
I have been honoured and proud to be call the coach of Ellenbrook colts and never for one second have I forgotten all the hard work Matty Craig and Phil Hay put into the young colts so to win the first Ellenbrook Colts premiership this year just meant so much more.
Thanks everyone who has supported the boys and came down on Saturday to watch and support, I really hope like me you have all enjoyed our Colts throughout the season!
Although we didn’t win a league Premiership this season We had all grades in the finals and winning the colts premiership is fantastic for the future of the club.
I would like to say thank you to Matty Craig for his support and help and a Huge THANK YOU to my daughter Georgia for all her help and support through the season!
