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.

Shane Paap, part of the great premiership era, will return as senior coach.

Four-times North Beach A-Grade premiership star Shane Paap has been appointed the club’s senior coach.

Paap, who retired at the end of the 2012 season after a decorated playing career with both North Beach and Subiaco, has spent the last five years building his coaching resume’ and is perfectly poised to take the club to another level.

The senior role was vacated by David Hynes after five years at the helm after taking the club to the grand final this year and successive finals series.

Paap has been both reserves coach and an assistant senior coach at Subiaco in the last four years after being an assistant coach at Claremont in 2013.

In the last four years he has been an important element of the best WAFL program at Subiaco, working closely with senior coach Jarrad Schofield.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my first few years of coaching and I’ve been fortunate to be part of a really successful Subiaco program led by Jarrad Schofield,” Paap said.

“I’m really looking forward to coaching the next generation of North Beach.

“The club has a really strong history, which I’ve already been lucky enough to be a part of as a player, so I feel fortunate that they’ve put their faith in me.

“I know I’ve got big shoes to fill, so I’m looking forward to getting started.”

Paap, who cut his teeth at North Beach feeder club Sorrento-Duncraig, played both as a forward and midfielder in the powerful era under Bill Duckworth, and was the inaugural winner of the Gary Tait Medal.
