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.

The depth of talent across the football club has never been better illustrated than it was at the weekend.

With 10 teams wearing the classic gold and red strip proudly, nine of them managed to emerge victorious – at an average winning margin of 65 points. And the team that did not greet the judge, is more about inclusion and opportunity than it is winning; the club is just rapt that the Integrated Rules team steps out each week, relishing the experience of playing footy.

The amazing roll of success started on Friday night when the Galleria Toyota A-Grade women triumphed against Quinns District and continued in three different venues on Saturday.

The three A-Grade teams were outstanding on the main patch at Charles Riley Reserve, the fifths and sixths were dominant on the second oval and at Pat Goodridge Reserve the threes and fours were similarly emphatic against Wembley.

The final piece of the puzzle came when the Red Hill Brett Jones Colts completed a remarkable day by upsetting Fremantle CBC in a twilight game at Morris Buzzacott Reserve.

We’ll start this wrap with the performances against Wembley (match reports for the A-Grade games and the A-Grade women have been posted already).

The Hybrid Linings D1-Grade were sublime against the Magpies, winning by a whopping 146 points (22.8 to 3.2) when clearly every member of the team was superb.

This team boasts a strong accent on youth, but the clinical display was more like that of a mature, seasoned outfit with a relentless four-quarter performance.

They finished off their work with a brilliant eight-goal last term. There were 13 different goalscorers with Caolon O’Connell, Mitch Cameron, Alex Coleman, Ryan Clapham, Peter Harvey, Nick Marsh and Cameron Alco among the brightest performers in a classy team performance.

The Coast to Coast Imports D1-Reserves also put the game beyond Wembley with an irresistible first half that saw them establish a 10-goal advantage at the long break.

The second half was not as clinical, but the Beach endured by 96 points – getting back to task in the last term to win 17.13 (115) to 3.1 (19).

Mitch Christie was superb up forward kicking three and was a constant threat all day while Josh Cameron continued his rich vein of form. Tom McDonald provided some dazzling speed on the wing along with some great forward entries.

The Red Hill Brett Jones Colts played with intensity and pressure from the outset, creating an opportunity for small forward Jayden Hunt in the first minute and they never wavered from the task.

The relentless pressure from James Mortimer and Drew Kingham gave North Beach a handy five-point lead going into the long break.

The start of the third was dynamic with Hayden Rose delivering a bullet to Mason Rollo, who kick-started the North Beach charge, and from that moment forward the Tigers had all the answers.

The defensive effort was critical to the victory, the Beach eventually locking away a 24-point win – 9.7 (61) to 5.7 (37).

Meanwhile the Express Bins E2-Grade were busy racking up an important triumph of their own against Bassendean.

After a sloppy first term, the Beach powered away and won by 87-points – 15.8 (98) to 1.5 (11).

Josh Green, Jack Collins, James Hay-Hendry, Brendan Bowden and Daniel Pike were the stand outs in a wonderful team effort.

The Fusion E3-Grade was similarly dominant against Piara Waters, never seriously challenged in 95-point romp.

Sam Harrison was prominent up forward throughout, while Deon Jacobs, Trevor Lang and Corey Bruse, James Brice and Jack Carpenter ensured the Beach had an edge in class.

Women embrace spotlight

 NBFCW-56If there is one trait that runs across the Galleria Toyota North Beach Women’s A-Grade team it is broad enthusiasm.

They have embraced every aspect of their debut season, attacked every new experience with unbridled passion and clearly are loving this whole footy experience.

And last Friday night, when they expanded the offerings of their trail-blazing season by playing at Arena Joondalup, they followed the trend. Against the previously undefeated Quinns District, the Beach endured in a thriller 1.4 (10) to 0.3.

Typically a scoreline of that nature would suggest a boring, uneventful match. This was anything but.

The surface had been soaked by the ground staff leading into the clash, so it was wet and slippery during a period of blissful, sun-drenched autumnal Perth days.

After the bye and a solid two weeks of preparation on the training track, the Beach girls were keen to test themselves against a highly-regarded opponent.

Almost a full squad was available, which saw seven changes made to the team, including two debutants – Morgan O’Connell and Brooke Lloyd. Brooke’s father John is a premiership player with the Tigers and they are the first father-daughter to represent the club. Brooke’s brother Jaxon also plays colts for the club.

Amy McIlroy was again dominant in the ruck and with our onballers getting first use of the ball Bec Viney and Sarah Cosoleto provided some good inside 50 entries. The first half was an arm wrestle before a late goal gave the Beach a six-point advantage.

The second half continued on from the first with a high intensity physical contest. The Beach stood up to the challenge where Paige Wilson-Cross was superb in her attack on the footy, winning the contested footy.

O’Connell was also brilliant throwing herself into the contest and made some bone jarring tackles. Mutta Deng also showed no fear, time and time again putting her head over the footy to win it for her team.

The scoreboard operators were not overly taxed in the second half, but the Beach endured in an absorbing match. Kellie Holden was a clear best-on-ground, in a Jeremy McGovern-like performance, intercepting nearly every kick deep into Quinns forward line.
