Pre-Season for the Peel Thunder Colts is in full swing

Tuesday, December 18, 2018 - 9:02 AM

The pre-season for the Peel Thunder Colts is in full swing with the pre-Xmas phase of the Simply Energy WAFL Colts Pre-Season wrapping up this week. Over the last four and a bit weeks, the 80 plus players on the track have all made great strides with their strength, conditioning and skill development.

The sessions have seen the whole squad of 80 train together on Monday nights at Bortolo Reserve in Greenfields, with Tuesday and Thursday sessions for Mandurah based players taking place at David Grays Arena. The club has again invested heavily in our country zone, with our South West boys training with the South West talent hub at Donnybrook on Wednesday nights with the East Perth and Swan Districts South West based players, and Friday nights at Brunswick Oval under the tutelage of Garry Dyer.
 
The squad has undertaken a variety of different tests under Strength and Conditioning Coach Mason Gittins, with a 2km time trial, the yo-yo test, 300m time trials, max bench press and repeat strength tests seeing some strong competition amongst the group.
 
The squad has also had a strong focus on football, with coach Michael Glassborow having a high focus on skill development and decision making. There has been a concerted effort to maximise the amount of touches the players are getting at this point of the pre-season and develop player skill sets. 
 
The squad played some intra squad matches on Tuesday 11th December, and following that the list has been reduced to 65 heading into the Christmas break. 
 
The Colts program wishes to congratulate Durak Tucker on his selection to the Sydney Swans in the recent rookie draft. Durak is a great example for the playing group of how to overcome adversity, with the strength of his character a benchmark for the aspiring players in the program. The program also wishes to congratulate Tyrone Thorne and Jack Sears for their selection in the initial Under 18s State Talent Hub, who completed their first camp last week at Subiaco Oval.

The squad breaks on 18/12 for Mandurah players and 19/12 for SW players, with the next phase of training commencing on 14/1/19 at Bortolo Reserve at 5:15pm.

Peel Thunder wishes all players and their families the best over the Christmas and New Year periods and look forward to the return of the players in 2019.

Thunder raise $15,163 in 'Up All Night' fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Perth

Last Saturday night, Peel Thunder took part in ‘Up All Night’ to raise money for Ronald McDonald House Charities Western Australia.

Thank you to everyone who supported Team Thunder in the walk, we are proud to advise that through our efforts together we raised $15,163, finishing 6th on the team leader board of the event.   CEO John Ditchburn said “It is important to our Club to continue to connect and deliver social value to our local community in any way we can.  Football is a great way to connect people.  We are just wrapped with the Community support of this fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Perth.”

Walking in an overnight marathon wasn’t easy, but it’s nothing compared to being the parent of a sick child.  Every day, families from across WA come to Perth so that their child can emergency medical treatment. Ronald McDonald House is their Home Away From Home during the most difficult time of their lives. 

Peel Thunder’s team comprised of:  CEO – John Ditchburn, Commercial Operations Manager – Mel Verdoes, Membership Officer – Lisa Hicks, Accounts Manager – Helen Douglas, Vice President – Renee Hardman, Directors – Chris Fairman and Brad Dean.

“We made it, that was a very hard walk but definitely feeling proud right now for doing the walk and raising money for such a great cause,”  said Thunder Director Chris Fairman. 

“That was epic!!  Super proud to say I walked 42km for Ronald McDonald Charities and shared the journey with my very special colleagues. We are all slightly buckled but very happy at the same time,” said Thunder Operations Manager Mel Verdoes.

By supporting the ‘Up All Night’ walk for Ronald McDonald House Perth and other Club events,  Peel Thunder Football Club would of contributed over $25,000 to Ronald McDonald House Perth this Season alone.

The Club would also like to thank Zen Body Massage and Seashells Mandurah.

Peel Thunder sign Jackson Merrett

Saturday, December 1, 2018 - 1:24 PM

PEEL Thunder Football Club have signed former Essendon player Jackson Merrett.

Coach Cam Shepherd congratulated the club on working hard to get a player of such high calibre.

“He is an elite hard-running wingman,” Shepherd said.

“He is an outstanding individual who will be a real feather in the cap for the club.’

Shepherd said it was especially good news for the younger players who could learn from Merrett.

“I look forward to the 2019 season and hope to get back into the top five,” Shepherd said.

“The addition of Jackson will help with that.”

Chief executive John Ditchburn said it was a coup to recruit such a quality player.

“Jackson fits the mould of the type of people at Peel Thunder,” he said.

Merrett said he was very excited and a little nervous about joining Peel.

He said he had a passion to play at a higher level and he had heard good things about Peel’s club culture.

“Over my football journey there is the stress and expectations you put on yourself,” Merrett said.

“I’ve realised I have lost the fun side of it.

“So I want to enjoy my football from week to week.”

Merrett said when he enjoyed his footy, it was replicated in his performance on the field.

He plans to move from Melbourne to Mandurah with his partner Olivia in the New Year.

Merrett played for Essendon Football Club for seven years. He played with Ben Howlett for six seasons at Essendon and they kept in contact after Howlett moved to Peel Thunder.
