Peel Thunder kicked off this season with a win last night against East Perth at the Medibank Stadium in Leederville

East Perth’s back pocket player Mitchell Fraser had to be escorted off the field with what looked to be a knee injury in the first quarter.

A fantastic performance from Leroy Jetta who kicked four of the seven goals for peel in the game and had 16 disposals under his belt by the final siren.

Team captain Gerard Ugle praised Jetta’s performance saying it was great to have him back on the team.

“great to have him back, he was a big out for us last year” Ugle said

“for him to come back and kick four goals, his pressure over the ground is amazing, so its been good having him back.”

This game was the first for Jetta after a two year suspension delivered in the appeal by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

By the end of the third quarter Peel had a comfortable lead of 6.10 (40) to 1.9 (15) against East Perth who seemed unable to match Peels efficiency.

Coach Cam Shepherd seemed happy with the team’s progress at three-quarter time praising the pressure from the forward line calling it a ‘highlight’ of the game.

East Perth managed to close the gap with three goals and three points in the fourth quarter compared to one goal and one point for Peel.

Peel Thunder captain Gerard Ugle attributed East Perth’s success in the fourth quarter to luck saying “I think they just got a couple of lucky goals I guess, our structures just sort of stuffed up there so I guess they got goals through our mistakes.”

East Perth were unable to seal the deal though with stand out Peel player Traye Bennel working hard to slow their progress.

Peel Thunder player Brady Grey who was returning from injury finished the game with 17 disposals under his belt, he said it was great to get a win against East Perth.

“it was a great win for us against East Perth which is a West Coast team so a bit of a mini derby for us. The guys really got up, we had a really good pre-season, couple of really good wins in the pre season comp so the Freo boys and the Peel boys play really well together and it was great to get the result.”

He agreed with Team Captain Ugle on Jetta’s performance in the game, saying the team knows what he brings.

“Y’know he’s had a really tough 12 months with the essendon saga but it was great to have him back out there and we know what he brings. He kicked four goals so he’s going to have that impact for us most weeks so its great to have him back on the team.

Team captain Gerard Ugle said Peel wasn’t tipped to make the final last year but the team had surprised a lot of people and hoped the team could do the same this year.

Peel Thunder cemented their first victory of the season, with 7.11 (53) to East Perth’s score of 4.12 (36).

The Peel Thunder Football Club is pleased to announce that Craig Otto has been appointed as head coach of the Colts squad for the 2017 and 2018 seasons.


Otto has an extensive history in both the Peel Football League and with the Peel Thunder Football Club, having played 170 games for the Rockingham Rams, and being a member of the inaugural Peel Cavaliers side in 1996.


Craig has also had extensive coaching experience with the Rockingham Football Club as a 3 time premiership winning Colts coach, as well as having coached the league side over 2 stints in 2001-03 and 2013/14. 


The Peel Football League Hall of Fame member also has had an extensive involvement with Peel Thunder, having been an assistant coach at reserves, Under 16 and colts level, and has been head coach of the Under 14s, 15s and 16s groups over the past three years. He was in charge of a squad that had 11 players selected in the WA Under 16s state academy this season and played some fantastic football over the Under 16s carnival.


Craig is extremely well respected within the local football community and has shown a great ability to get the best out of all players he has worked with. His communication skills and coaching philosophies with developing players are highly regarded and will hold the group in good stead in the coming seasons.


In other coaching news, Mandurah Mustangs life member, former Peel Thunder player and fellow Peel Football League Hall of Famer, Brad Perry has been named as an assistant coach of the colts squad, with impressive developing coach Jayden Heuer re-appointed as an assistant coach for a second year. Dave Mews also rejoins the colts program as an assistant coach after a stint at South Fremantle in 2015 and coaching the Year 9 Academy side in 2016, while team manager Tim Overington will also continue in 2017 for his third season in the role. Peter Morrissey and Adam Shine will head up the development coaching and the South West Program in 2017 and are key appointments in developing players in our country zone.


The club is also pleased to announce that former colts captain Mitch Russell has been appointed as Strength and Conditioning Coach for the 2017 Colts Program. Russell comes to the club with a strong football history at both Peel and Warnbro football clubs, and is also running his own personal training business at Port Kennedy.

In a great night for the Peel Thunder Colts program, Jakeb Shine has taken out the inaugural David Cameron Memorial Medal for the fairest and best player in the Peel Thunder Colts side for 2016.


In a tight finish, Shine polled 4 votes against Claremont in the last game to finish on 105 votes, with Jack Clarke Medallist Michael Humble polling 10 votes to finish on 99 votes and in second place.


Shine, a 17 year old from the HBL junior club, spent the majority of the season playing across the half back line. Shine at times played on key forwards and did an outstanding role in winning contests and providing rebound from the back half of the ground. Shine averaged 17 possessions and 5 marks a game in his first season at colts level. Jakebs professionalism, commitment to his training and work rate are strong attributes to his game.


Humble was recognised for his outstanding season with 2nd place in a year that has marked his league debut, selection in the Redimed WAFL Team Of The Year, the Jack Clarke Medal and the WAFL Colts Coaches Award. The midfielder was a consistent ball winner in his 15 games, averaging 26 possessions, 9 clearances and 6 tackles a game. Humble was also recognised in winning the Players Player award which was voted across the season after each game by his teammates.


Aaron Naughton finished in 3rd place after an outstanding season playing in a key defensive post. Still 16 years old, Naughton represented Western Australia in the National Under 18s Championships, was named at full back in the WAFL Colts Team of the Year and has also been selected to play in the AFL Futures game as the curtain raiser to the AFL Grand Final at the MCG. Naughton averaged 6 marks and 14 possessions a game.


Other award winners on the night were Brandon Penny who took out the Colts Leadership award, whilst Jordan Boullineau was awarded the WAFL Combined Past Players Encouragement Award.


Congratulations to all players, partners and parents who presented themselves fantastically on the evening, and had an extremely fun night to wrap up the colts season.
