Fullgrabe joins board
- Tuesday, 17 December 2013
Subiaco’s newest board member Tony Fullgrabe says he’s committed to maintaining the club’s strong off field position, while at the same time rebuilding the team into a league powerhouse..
Fullgrabe’s involvement with the Lions stretches back 7 years and he becomes the director responsible for talent and country servicing, replacing the retiring Dennis Blair at the club’s annual general meeting last week.
Fullgrabe, who worked closely with Blair during the 2013 season, says that when 1973 Simpson medalist decided to retire from the board of directors he was well prepared to put his hand up.
“I live in the northern area (Subiaco’s junior districts) and one of my main aims is to work out what we need to do to get these under 14’s 16’s and 18’s kids to go through the right system, so we don’t lose them to other sports.” Fullgrabe said
“I’m here for the long haul which will be good for the club, I’ve got a lot of energy at the moment so I just want to help Subiaco as much as I can and learn as much as I can.”
Other AGM highlights included Mick Malone and Wayne Golding inducted as life members.
CEO Peter Capes announced the club’s annual profit was close to the budget figure and was pleased with another successful season off the field.
Coach Jarrad Schofield and Football Operations Manager Luke Sanders confirmed the following departures from the 2013 senior side:
A Grover – Retired
J Daye – Returned to QLD
D Sheed – Drafted
M Wood – Drafted
C Sinclair- WCE/EP
B Randall- Injury/ Season off
R Herring – returning to Adelaide
15 players made their senior debut for the club this season while 10 colts age players were elevated to senior football through the club’s player transition policy.
The night ended with a barbeque and drinks while members and staff reflected on season 2013.
