Tigers Make The Jump

Wednesday, December 3, 2014 - 11:52 AM

Of nine West Australians to be selected in last week’s 2014 AFL National draft, two were from the Claremont Football Club. A further two players were selected in today’s AFL Rookie draft continuing Claremont’s unparalleled success in providing players to the nation’s elite football competition.

After winning the minor premiership the past four years and with two of those seasons sealed with premiership flags, 2014 was always going to bring fresh challenges to tigerland with a host of champions lost to retirement and travel before the season began.

Despite a tough start, Claremont was able to unearth yet another crop of developing stars with 13 fresh faces to don the gold sash for the first time over the course of the year. This injection of talented youngsters saw the tigers win eight of the last nine games of the season to only narrowly miss the finals, and become the only side in the competition to beat every other side over the course of the year in the process.

The 18-year-old Hardisty was chosen as pick No. 18 by Hawthorn in today’s rookie draft and Abbott (19) was taken at No. 26 by Collingwood.

Shimmon Leaves An Indelible Mark

Thursday, November 6, 2014 - 10:44 AM - by Ken Casellas

Ever since 17-year-old Todd Shimmon donned the No. 19 jumper and booted three goals in his first appearance in the Claremont colts side, against South Fremantle at Claremont Oval in 1982, has he been a dedicated and passionate Tiger.

He has been a wonderful stalwart of the club in a variety of roles for 27 years and now all at Claremont bid him a fond farewell and wish him all the best in his move to East Fremantle as the chief executive officer of the Sharks.

He is accepting a new challenge in life with his customary enthusiasm after leaving an indelible mark at the club where he has served in the role of general manager and CEO for 14 years, a record term in the 89-year history of the club.

Swan Districts produced a superior brand of team football and exerted greater pressure to emerge triumphant over Claremont in the grand final at Subiaco Oval on Sunday morning when the Tigers failed to take full advantage of the wind in the first and third quarters and were defeated by 20 points.

Emerging as a wonderful shining light in a losing cause was the youngest player on the ground, Claremont’s highly-talented 16-year-old Sam Petrevski-Seton, who delighted the sparse crowd with his dazzling skills in yet another wonderful display which reinforced his prospects of becoming a league star for Claremont and a champion in the AFL competition.
