FOR the first time in the 10year history of the Jandakot Senior Football Club, the league, reserves and colts teams all contested grand finals on the weekend.
Jandakot was the only club in the Western Australian Amateur Football League to have two undefeated sides in the competition, with both the league and reserves finishing with 16 wins and zero losses for the home and away season.
That good form carried into the grand final for Jandakot’s league team, who beat their Osborne Park opponents 112-51 to record a massive 61-point victory.
The reserves team was not so lucky, going down to the Cobras 50-44.
After claiming a nailbiting one-point win against minor premiers Secret Harbour to progress straight to the grand final, the colts made it two from three for Jandakot in 2018 when they beat Secret Harbour 41-34.
It has been a momentous year for the club, with its 10-year anniversary, first League grand final and progression into the C3 competition next season. EAST Freo Sharks Netball Club will join the West Australian Netball League next year.
The Sharks will join Hamersley Curtin Netball Club, Perth Netball Club, Rangers Netball Club, South East Demons Netball Club, Southwest Jets Netball Club and West Coast Warriors Netball Club for the next three seasons.
Current West Coast Fever players Jess Anstiss, Courtney Bruce, Ingrid Colyer, Annika Lee-Jones and Kaylia Stanton all plied their trade in the league.
Netball WA chief executive Simon Taylor said the league was set to enter an exciting era in 2019.
“The West Australian Netball League is the preeminent netball competition in Western Australia and I am looking forward to the growth and evolution of the competition over the years,” he said.
East Fremantle Football Club chief executive Todd Shimmon said they had worked with the Fremantle Netball Association in the past and it was a great setup.
“We think we can provide an elite pathway for the girls and we have expertise here at Shark Park to make that happen,” he said.
