The North Beach Football Club is one of the powerhouse organisations within the highly regarded West Australian Amateur Football League and is planning a return to the top of the A-Grade tree.

In winning the WAAFL A-Grade Grand Final on September 11, 2010, the club won its seventh successive senior pennant, which was also the 10th time in a 12 year period that it secured the senior title – all under the direction of former Essendon star Bill Duckworth.

This season, the club has undergone change with 1994 West Coast Eagles premiership ruckman David Hynes assuming the senior coaching reins after Duckworth, perhaps the most influential figure in club history, stood down as senior coach.

Having finished third in each of the last two seasons, after stumbling in the preliminary, the club is determined to push ahead and leave a stronger impression on the finals series.

Hynes, who comes into the club after several years as senior assistant at WAFL club East Perth, has introduced a new system and approach which he hopes will take the club forward.

Established in 1964, North Beach took 25 years to won its first A-Grade title, but since then has flourished in a competition which continues to grow in stature as the premier amateur competition in the State.

Duckworth, the 1984 Norm Smith medallist has been central to the domination over the last 12 years, creating a winning culture but also finding the balance between success and an outstanding social environment.

To support the A-Grade title in 2010, the club also won its first A-Reserves premiership but thrives as a club providing players of all skills levels with the opportunity to play the greatest game in the world – Australian football.

The club boasts five senior teams and two colts teams and is based at Charles Riley Reserve, North Beach, just a couple of hundred metres off the spectacular coast of Perth’s northern suburbs.

North Beach welcomes all prospective players to a club that thrives on the challenges of playing to the highest possible standards, but creates great unity and camaraderie through a vibrant social scene that is enjoyed by all players and supporters.

The club can be contacted through President David Cassidy on 0402 848 958.

Rivalry lives strong

Dion Cownie (l) and Andrew McGuinness will have important roles to play

Dion Cownie (l) and Andrew McGuinness will have important roles to play

By Gary Stocks
History, they say, does not influence results in the present.

Players do not think about the past when preparing for the immediate task before them; coaches to do not refer to results any further back than perhaps the last time they met, to point out a method or individual that influenced the outcome.

It would, however, be dismissive to think that the rivalry between the O’Rourke Realty North Beach A-Grade team and Scarborough has a deep meaning.

The two clubs were fierce competitors in the 80s and 90s and while personnel – both on and off-field – has changed significantly since that combative era, there are plenty who remember fondly some of those great encounters.

So at least within the spectators at Millington Reserve tomorrow that sense of rivalry will live strong. As Scarborough, who sit in second position, prepare to host the Beach, who are third, there is plenty on the line and it should help create a great atmosphere at the venue.

The Sea Eagles boast a truck load of WAFL and AFL experience and again it will make for an intriguing contest with the youthful North Beach outfit.

It is a similar situation in the Lifenet A-Reserves, where North Beach overcame the Sea Eagles in a thrilling grand final last year. Both should be serious players in the finals series with the Beach sitting on top of the ladder and Scarborough is in fifth place.

The Plasterwise Phil Scott Colts match should also produce an entertaining game, with the Bach sitting in second position and will be looking to thwart the challenge of fourth-placed Scarborough.

While the A-Grade teams will have their challenges at Millington Reserve, the club’s Charles Riley Reserve will also host some intriguing matches.

The Hybrid Linings D1-Grade has had a month of searching examinations, have won some and lost some, but will play host to bottom-placed Mt Lawley.

They will be looking to maintain systems and strategies are they plot towards a finals campaign.

The Coast to Coast Imports D1-Reserves face a significantly more testing assignment against the Mt Lawley fourth grade outfit and will be looking to sustain third position on the ladder. Curtin-Wesley and University are clearly the top two in this competition, but third spot would be a valued position from which to launch a finals series.

The Express Bins E2-Grade will travel to Willetton to confront their fellow finals locks at Burrendah Reserve.

Women look to consolidate

IMG_9873The inaugural season of the WAAFL A-Grade women’s competition has created great interest and intrigue within the league.

While two of the seven teams have battled to measure up, the other five have a waver between them. There have six draws in this competition so far and while Curtin University-Wesley sit clearly at the top of the table, four premiership points separate the next four clubs.

That pack is headed by the Galleria Toyota North Beach outfit and they will press for the opportunity to skip away from their closest rivals by beating Quinns Districts at Charles Riley Reserve tomorrow.

The last time these two teams met it was under lights on a sodden Joondalup Arena, with the Beach enduring in a low-scoring contest.

There is no question the Beach has improved since that last encounter and they will be looking to demonstrate it at home tomorrow.
