Subiaco legend Brian Sierakowski will be inducted as West Australian Football Commission Life Member in a December 10 ceremony.
Sierakowski played five seasons at St Kilda in the VFL and six for Subiaco in the WAFL throughout the mid-1960s and early 70s.
His records include a 1973 WAFL Premiership and the 1969 and 73 State Team.
In 1972 Sierakowski was Subiaco's most consisten played and won the club's Best and Fairest and only narrowly missed out on the Sandover medal.
At the end of his playing career Sierakowski took over as the coach of University Football Club for three seasons, which included a West Australian Amateur Football League Premiership in 1978.
After his hiatus, ‘Siera’ returned to Subiaco as a Director and Vice President.
Sierakowski is now a Life Member of the club and also a Diehard.
Despite his work at the top of football in Australia, which includes a six-year stint as a Director at the West Coast Eagles, it is his work in the community and grass roots that is most impressive.
Sierakowski has been the patron of Cottesloe Junior Football Club since 1987 and was Deputy Chairman of David Wirrpanda Foundation 2004-2009.
His current involvement is as the Chairman of the Community Football Council since 2008.
