League Report: Tigers Hold off Falcons

Monday, June 26, 2017 - 1:56 PM

By Dan Scamozzi

Claremont held off a fast-finishing and inaccurate West Perth to record their third consecutive win at Claremont Oval last Saturday.

West Perth’s Corey Chalmers had the chance to win the game for the Falcons after the siren, but saw his shot from a tight angle miss to the near side as the Tigers held on for a thrilling two-point win, 14.6 (90) to 12.16 (88).

The win leaves Claremont in sixth position on the ladder, however, the Tigers are now just one win from third-placed Peel Thunder, who they face in round 15.

Development Report: Tigers Punished by Falcons

By Dan Scamozzi

Claremont’s Reserves saw their seven-game winning run come to an abrupt end after a sluggish and disappointing performance resulted in an 84-point defeat to West Perth at Claremont Oval last Saturday.

After starting slowly, getting dominated in midfield and offering little resistance, the Tigers had no answers in the 4.5 (29) to 17.11 (113) hiding, and were left licking their wounds after injuries to Jake Murphy (calf), Tom Shanahan (hamstring) and Aaron Holt (foot).

Charles Le Fanu (21 disposals, six tackles) battled manfully to finish as Claremont’s best player and won the players’ player award, while Luke Maddock was solid in defence and Declan Hardisty played his first game for the season.

Jack Richardson kicked two goals but was the Tigers’ only multiple goal kicker, while Shaquille Morton and Jacob Delaporte made their debuts.

West Perth were well served by Brayden and Mitchell Antonio, who combined for seven goals, while Conal Lynch (33 disposals, nine tackles, nine inside 50s, two goals) and veteran ruckman Chris Keunen (29 disposals, 30 hit-outs, six inside 50s, one goal) dominated as the Falcons recorded their fifth win of the season.

The Tigers will aim to rebound when they face Peel Thunder at Bendigo Bank Stadium in round 15.

Meanwhile, Claremont’s Colts suffered a four-point defeat to West Perth, 8.8 (56) to 9.6 (60).

Round 14 Preview Claremont v West Perth

Wednesday, June 21, 2017 - 10:51 AM

By Dan Scamozzi

A victory against West Perth on Saturday afternoon would give Claremont three consecutive wins, but also move the Tigers within one win of the third-placed Falcons and possibly into the top five.

After wins against Swan Districts and East Fremantle in the last two rounds, the Tigers have got their season back on track, with Saturday’s game looming as crucial for both teams.

It’s also an important day for the Claremont Football Club.

This Saturday is the club's annual “Proudies Day”, which aims to raise money for the care of former Claremont player Warrick Proudlove, who was seriously injured in a car accident in July 2011.

The Proudies Foundation Inc. was incorporated on 16th July 2012, with all funds raised by the Foundation going directly to Warrick’s care. 

There will be a silent auction running on Saturday in the Member's Bar, this is your chance to purchase a 1937 Heritage Jumper worn by the players in the first match back at Claremont Oval a couple of weeks ago (see image below). Half of the money raised from the auction will be donated to the Proudies Foundation. 

In preparation for the game this weekend Claremont Captain, Jake Murphy says, "Waz, along with his amazing family lead by Kevin and Trish, have an unbelievable fighting spirit that continuously inspires the boys.

"It is something the playing group will be drawing upon this week to get a win and celebrate Proudies Day with the whole Claremont football community" He said.

For more information or to donate please visit www.proudiesfoundation.com.au

The club encourages all members and supporters to attend the match and cheer the Tigers to victory.

CWFC vs WPWFC Reserves Game Summary.

The Reserves depth was tested again on Sunday following the elevation of five players into the senior team. Any concerns were put to bed early with Emily Dummer kicking three goals in the first 8 minutes of the game. The stage was now set for the Tigers to continue on their winning way with the game being put out of reach of the Falcons by half time.

The second half allowed for a number of players to be given opportunities in different ground positions with the aim of continuing the football education process.

Best players were Emily Dummer, Lou Carey, Jasmine Harkin, Erin O'Brien and Poppy Schwass. The effort of Caitlin Smales, Amberley Hope and Courtney Aylett was exciting from a player development point of view and did not go unnoticed by the coaching team.
