Jake Watson Memorial Round

Our under 18s will take on The Eagles and will play for the Jake Watson memorial trophy. In this round we remember the young lives that were so tragically taken too soon, including Jake Watson, Ben Mitchell, Glen Knott and Corey Siemers

It was 2002 when West Adelaide Under 19’s played Woodville West Torrens and Jake Watson so tragically passed away while playing the sport he loved. The Woodville players stayed around after the game, and once his death was confirmed they entered the West Adelaide change rooms and embraced everyone. .

The players memorial plaques are in the players race and are never forgotten. We would love as many people to stay for the under 18 game which takes place after to the league game at 5pm.
