Westies go Local

Published on: Aug 10 2018 | Author: westadelaidefc |

Training looked a little bit different on Wednesday with our players all putting on an old guernsey. Most guernseys worn were from the players original footy clubs.


In 2017 West Adelaide had 71% of our league players originating from our country and metro zones. This was second highest in the league behind Woodville-West Torrens. When we won the premiership in 2015 we were the league leaders with 69%.

This number shows the work West Adelaide does in our junior programs to develop players from under 13, 14 and 15 programs as well as under 16s and under 18s.

Throughout August our football department is doing zone trips to Roxby Downs and the Riverland, which has always been a fantastic breeding ground for football talent. Jack Agostino is playing his 50th league game next Saturday. He is from the Renmark Rovers Football Club. Josh Schiller will also be playing his 100th game.  He is from the Waikerie Football Club.

Shannon Green who is from Edwardstown Football Club became a player life member and has played 144 games and a Premiership Player. Daniel Webb who is from Flagstaff Hill has also become a player life member this year has played 125 games and is also a Premiership Player.
