Around The Club: January 2016
Thursday, 28 January 2016
The Subiaco Football Club has returned to its regular training schedule as their off-season acquisitions join the playing group.
The Lions brought in six players over the trade period, which will help ease the loss of Rumble, Menegola, Yarran, Worthington and Boland but head coach Jarrad Schofield is looking for youth to step up as well.
“I think we’ll see guys like Simon Moore, who was in the 25 for last year’s grand final, turn into good senior footballers,” Schofield said.
“Billy Fetherstonhaugh is another talented player coming through the ranks, as is Craig Hoskins, Joey Scafidi, Max Walters and Kyle Halligan.
“All these guys have really stepped up and are tearing the track up during pre-season.” - PERTHNOW
FRANK THE TANK
2014 Premiership ruck-man Frank Stockley has decided to retire from WAFL football after 44 league games, 43 reserves games and 1753 hit-outs. Stockley was a key part of the Lions 2014 flag after moving from West Perth but endured an ACL knee injury in pre-season last year. Stockley is set to focus on his booming real estate career but will forever be a Lions legend.
The Subiaco Football Club has had a couple of staff changes in the football department with a new Operations Manager and District Officer. Daniel Vidovich has filled the role of Football Operations Manager and Callum Warner has absorbed the District Manager role.
