Bulldogs fixture for 2014 WAFL season

Saturday, December 21, 2013 - 5:55 PM

FRIDAY night WAFL football returns to Fremantle Oval in a big way in 2014 with four games scheduled at the beginning and finish of the upcoming season.

The first Friday night game of 2014 at Fremantle Oval will take place in Round 2 when South Fremantle hosts Perth before the following Friday it will be last season's grand finalists East Perth taking on the Bulldogs under lights at the port.
Then the last two rounds of the season sees South Fremantle host Subiaco and Peel Thunder in Friday night fixtures at Fremantle Oval. The four night matches will all bounce down at 6.20pm.
The Bulldogs' 2014 season will see them face off with East Fremantle three times as usual as well as Peel Thunder, Subiaco and Swan Districts while playing Claremont, East Perth, Perth and reigning premiers West Perth just the twice.
South Fremantle's 2014 campaign begins with a twilight fixture at Leederville's Medibank Stadium in Round 1 against Subiaco on Saturday March 22 with bounce down set for 4.15pm.
Then following the back-to-back night games against the Demons and Royals in Rounds 2 and 3, the Bulldogs hit the road to take on Swan Districts at Steel Blue Oval, West Perth at Arena Joondalup and then East Fremantle in the now annual Anzac Day clash at East Fremantle Oval.
South Fremantle is then home for a week to host Claremont in Round 7 prior to a Round 8 bye and then Round 9 clash in Mandurah against Peel Thunder before another break due to the state game against the NEAFL to be played in Sydney on Saturday May 24.
The Bulldogs' stop-start run then continues following the state game with the Foundation Derby against East Fremantle at Fremantle Oval on Monday June 2 before another bye.
That means that between Rounds 8 and 11, South Fremantle will play two games, have two byes and the week off for the state game.
Things settle down after that, though, with five straight matches between Rounds 12 and 16 that sees South Fremantle take on East Perth at Medibank Stadium, host Swan Districts, host West Perth, face Claremont at the Showgrounds and take on Perth at Lathlain Park.
Following the Round 17 bye, the Bulldogs host Subiaco, face East Fremantle for the final time of the season at East Fremantle Oval, host Peel, travel to Bassendean to play Swans and then finish with the two night games against Subiaco and Peel at Fremantle Oval.

Bulldogs snap up James Sellar for 2014

Friday, December 6, 2013 - 7:14 PM

SOUTH Fremantle has pulled off a significant recruiting victory signing former Melbourne and Adelaide AFL big man James Sellar for the 2014 season ahead of rival WAFL clubs.

The 24-year-old Sellar will now arrive at Fremantle Oval to play with the Bulldogs in the 2014 WAFL season along with former Swan Districts centre half-forward Josh Pullman while Ashton Hams, Steven Verrier and Haiden Schloithe have all signed on post their time in the AFL system.
Sellar was initially drafted into the AFL by the Adelaide Crows going on to play one game in 2008, 11 in 2009, four in 2010 and then another five in 2011 before moving to Melbourne for the last two seasons.
He played 23 games for the Demons the last two seasons but with new coach Paul Roos arriving, he found himself delisted and now has chosen to firstly move west to continue his football career in the WAFL, and ended up choosing South Fremantle as his destination with several clubs chasing his services.
At 196cm and 98kg to go with 44 games of AFL experience in six years behind him, Sellar brings plenty with him to the Bulldogs with what he has learned from that time at the top level, but also in terms of being able to play a variety of roles.
His most natural role could very well be at centre half-back where he could help out South Fremantle's emerging defenders Dylan Ross, Nick Borovac, Adam McIntosh and Justin Monaco.
However, he also has enough size and athleticism to be able to play in the ruck if required and also can go forward to provide a tall marking option as well.
The signing of the versatile big man is a significant coup for South Fremantle and is one that gives third-year coach Paul Hasleby plenty of options as he looks to try and lead the Bulldogs back to being a WAFL finals contender.
Meanwhile, 2012 Bernie Naylor Medallist Ben Saunders, 129-game veteran Paul Mugambwa and the developing Alistair Gillespie will have some help up forward in 2014 as well following South Fremantle's signing of Josh Pullman.
The 24-year-old was a colts premiership captain at Swan Districts in 2007 before going on to play 23 league games for the black-and-whites where he kicked 31 goals.
The hard-leading and powerful key forward kicked seven goals one afternoon for Swans against Peel Thunder in Mandurah so knows where the big sticks are, and he arrives at South Fremantle having spent the last three years playing and living in Queensland.
Those two arrivals who will fill key positions roles for the Bulldogs in 2014 go along with the welcome full-time returns of Hams, Verrier and Schloithe after their time in the AFL.
The 27-year-old Hams has already played 115 games with the Bulldogs including the 2005 and 2009 premierships, and the Simpson Medal from the 2009 grand final, and returns to South Fremantle after he decided to end his AFL career following the end of the 2013 season.
Hams played 39 games with the Eagles over the last four years, but when he has been back playing with South Fremantle he has been a dominant figure both as a small forward and midfielder, and now he will be a valuable player once again for the Bulldogs after signing on for the next two years.
Hams, along with twin brother Kyle, arrived originally at South Fremantle from Busselton and after taking part in the successful colts team of 2003 and reserves of 2004, settled in the league line-up in the premiership year of 2005 and never looked back from there.
Both brothers became permanent members of the defensive unit and were part of the premiership of 2005 and then again in 2009, but by this stage Ashton was moved into the midfield and spent some time up forward also.
He subsequently won the Simpson Medal for his effort in the grand final win of 2009 against Subiaco and that put him on the radar of AFL clubs, and it was the West Coast Eagles who snaffled him up.
Hams still played nine matches with South Fremantle in 2010 and then 11 in 2011 where he had such a marked impact on the Bulldogs that he still finished runner-up in the fairest and best count despite not taking part in nine games.
Hams played 11 AFL games for the Eagles in 2010, four in 2011 and then 16 in 2012 which limited him to just two for South Fremantle last year, but this year he managed just the eight AFL matches and in his nine with South Fremantle, he was simply outstanding.
It included 31 possessions and two goals in the thumping Foundation Derby win over East Fremantle, 35 possessions in Round 18 in the win over eventual premiers West Perth and 31 touches and six goals in the Round 22 win over Peel Thunder.
Hams dominated the competition in the games he played in 2013 for South Fremantle and now the club is delighted to have him on board for the next two years which should see him earn life membership by reaching 150 games, and hopefully add to his growing resume of accomplishments.
Verrier, the brother of 2013 reserves fairest and best winner Brendan, returns to South Fremantle in 2014 after spending the last two seasons with Richmond in the AFL without breaking through for a senior game.
Schloithe was rookie-listed by Fremantle in 2012 and despite an impressive 2013 WAFL season with the Bulldogs largely in the midfield, he found himself delisted by the Dockers and that now becomes South Fremantle's gain for 2014.
The 20-year-old originally from Katanning averaged over 20 possessions a game with the Bulldogs in 2013 including a high of 32 in Round 10.

Vandeleur, Johnson selected in AFL Rookie Draft

Wednesday, November 27, 2013 - 12:34 PM

TOM Vandeleur and Blaine Johnson have both been selected in Wednesday's AFL Rookie Draft with the exciting young pair joining Fremantle and Carlton respectively.

With Vandeleur and Johnson both being picked up in the Rookie Draft, it means that South Fremantle has provided four players to the AFL system this year after Cameron McCarthy (Greater Western Sydney Giants) and Dylan Main (West Coast) were both selected in last Thursday's National Draft.
It caps off an outstanding year for the South Fremantle Football Club that saw the colts make a third straight WAFL grand final, the reserves with the premiership and the league side build for the future with a host of exciting young players showing encouraging signs for the future.
Quality young defender Vandeleur was the first South Fremantle player taken in the AFL's Rookie Draft on Wednesday morning when the Fremantle Dockers selected him with pick No. 32.
His fellow former colts premiership teammate and 2013 league debutant Johnson then joined him in the AFL system when he was selected at pick No. 43 by Carlton.
Even though it means that both will now not be available to play with South Fremantle in 2014 with Vandeleur forced to unfortunately play with Peel Thunder and Johnson moving to Melbourne, the Bulldogs are proud and excited to see the pair enter the AFL system.
Vandeleur was a South Fremantle colts premiership player in 2012 and then stepped up when called upon to make his WAFL league debut in Round 1 of 2013 despite not having even trained with the senior side.
The 18-year-old acquitted himself well in the back-line against the reigning premier Claremont as well and even though that would be his only appearance in the league side for 2013, he had an outstanding year overall.
He represented Western Australia in the National 18s Championships and was a star in the colts team that again made the grand final before eventually suffering a narrow defeat to Claremont.
Vandeleur also played five reserves matches with the Bulldogs in 2013 to go with his league debut, eight colts games and appearances with the WA 18s team.
Despite being just 18, the Gascoyne-native is strongly built for his age and is a good size at 191cm so can player either as a key position player, or is quick and nimble enough to also play in a back pocket or half-back flank.
Johnson, meanwhile, spends his time at the opposite end of the ground than Vandeleur and is a tremendously clever, and skilful small/medium-sized forward.
With Carlton losing small forward Eddie Betts heading into the 2014 AFL season, there could very well be a role there for Johnson to fill if he quickly adjusts to life at the Blues under his new coach Mick Malthouse.
The 18-year-old from Kwinana kicked two goals in the 2012 colts grand final win over East Fremantle and started 2013 in the colts as well leading into his strong performances for WA in the 18s Championships.
Despite just playing nine colts games in 2013, he was named in the WAFL Colts Team of the Year.
Late in the season he began playing senior football with the reserves side and after kicking three goals from 19 possessions in Round 22, he was picked for his league debut the following week.
He didn’t set the world on fire in that game at Fremantle Oval against East Perth, but Johnson was terrific in his second game with 18 possessions and three goals against Perth.
Johnson then returned to the reserves line-up for the finals campaign and won the Merv McIntosh Medal for a best on ground performance in the grand final win over West Perth after he kicked five goals from eight kicks.
With good skills and a natural goal sense, Johnson very well could shine at AFL level.
