Claremont Football Club goes green

Thursday, October 26, 2017 - 3:28 PM

We're going green, thanks to Mitch Andrews!!

Solar is to be the new power game for Claremont Football Club with the installation of a large 100kW PV solar system on the Club’s roof in December.

This leading-edge solar system, comprising over 300 ‘Tier One’ panels and using the latest SolarEdge optimisation technology, will be installed by Club Ruckman Mitch Andrews through his company GreenTec Energy.

Mitch will be ‘reaching high again’ -- the PV system is expected to generate about 150,000 hours of clean, cheap electricity per year for the Club. 

The Tiger’s CEO,  Graham Moss, said he’s delighted that Claremont Football Club has been able to join in the solar transformation occurring throughout Australia. “The system’s environmental impact is an added incentive for the Club as it takes our sustainability efforts in the new building to the next level.  

The solar will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 150 tonnes a year  - that’s the equivalent of a forest of mature trees, which is the size of two football ovals” Moss said. “We’re also really pleased that it’s being installed by one of our own players. Mitch has provided us with a PV system well suited to our ongoing needs for a very competitive price and has offered to help sponsor us further through his business.”

GreenTec Energy have recently entered a strategic national solar industry partnership giving them access to an extensive array of well-priced, high quality Tier One equipment (Tier One is the top grade for panel manufacturers), enabling them to reap benefits usually associated with larger organisations. Mitch is offering to donate $50 from each kilowatt of solar purchased by members and sponsors, to the Club.

If you are considering a residential or commercial solar system please contact Mitch Andrews at Greentec 0409 993 141

Fast Facts:

  • The solar system will save 350,000 litres of water each year, that would normally be used by a coal fired power station in the electricity generation process.
  • Reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 150 tonnes is equivalent to:

Greenhouse gas emissions from:

  • 32 passenger cars driven for one year
  • 52.3 tonnes of waste recycled instead of going to landfill

CO2 emissions from:

  • 347 barrels of oil consumed
  • 5,020 incandescent lights switched to LED

Carbon removed from the environment by:

  • 3,887 tree seedlings grown for 10 years

Purchase a paver & donate to the club!

To all Claremont Football Club members and supporters

Our new Clubrooms are now finished and operating extremely well.

A great deal of the internal building fit out including players and coaches equipment was funded through the Paver project which was launched in 2012 and had raised approximately $170,000 over the five years of the project. 105 large and 250 small pavers have been installed at the entrance to the building but there is plent of space for more pavers to be installed.

I am pleased to advise that we will be continuing with the paver project which will allow those who don't have a paver to purchase either a large or small paver and have your name etched into the history of the Club in a very visible and tangible way. The funds raised will continie to be directed toweards enhancing our playing and coaching equipment and facilities, for example new ice baths for players and continual enhancement of our player's video editing equipment, upgrading of the oval lights etc.

The pavers are funded through a donation the Australian Sports Foundation and your donation is fully tax deductable. The donation form is available online

Banfield wins 2017 E.B Cook Medal

Wednesday, October 18, 2017 - 3:47 PM

By Darren Harris 

Hello to all our Claremont supporters and members.

I just want to take the opportunity to again thank you for all your support and positivity this year and to reflect on season 2017 and the E.B. Cook medal night.

It was a great opportunity to thank everyone who played their part across the whole club. There is a lot of great people who all do their bit and enable us to exist. To have the awards in our new facility highlights again the effort made by all.

Bailey Banfield was an extremely deserving winner and one of the most popular outcomes I have witnessed to be honest. His season performances were consistently high. He was team first in all he did and set an example to our whole club well beyond his years in how to prepare effectively. Success occurs when preparation and opportunity meet and Bailey made sure he earnt his opportunity and then delivered week in and week out. His parents are undoubtedly proud of their son. The way he presented himself and spoke also set a great example and showed his level of maturity. He is a ripper.

It was such an even distribution of votes with hardly any separation between the next 10 to 12 place getters. Jye Boltons votes mirrored his Sandover votes. Once he played that team first role his performances improved and he stormed home. 2018 shapes as a massive opportunity for Jye to lead the way with this. Keifer Yu started the year and ended the year strongly considering the preparation he had due to injury. It was a great effort by Keif.  Haydn Busher stormed home and again sets himself up for a massive 2018.

The sacrificial Tiger award is one that is highly regarded at the club. Ian Richardson was our strongest leader this year and on and off field set the highest of standards. He was so consistent on field but It was his drive to win and increased demand on his mates to push harder that stood him apart from his peers. First on the track, last to leave, ticked all boxes from a preparation point of view and went above and beyond to bring people together off it. Outstanding effort.

Linked to this and presented by Chloe on behalf of all the support staff is the Engine Room award that was won by Jess Laurie. Jess brings positivity and energy to the whole club and epitomises the good men we want to be at our football club. To be recognised by our volunteers for his attitude is just reward for Jess who set a great example to all.

Jake Murphy announced that he will be stepping down as Captain. While he might not have the title, we know we still have a Captain there in Murph. Jake presented the Players Player award which is voted each week by the whole team on who gives the maximum team effort. It is recognition for living our values the most on field. That another graduating colt in Matt Guelfi, like Bailey won this award is another reflection on the quality development Warren and Ross have done with our Colts. 

Matt played some inspired football this year and his tackling, chasing, courage, and selflessness won him the absolute respect from his team mates.

Ryan Murphy won our best first year player on the back of an exciting first year after a break from football in 2016. Ryan really improved as the year went on and offensively was one of our most influential players. With a big pre-season and continued improvement Ryan will be one of the reasons this club will be successful.

Lauchie Martinis and Fraser House were the other winners of the B&F at development and colts level respectively. Both had outstanding years. Lauchie should become a regular in our League side in 2018 and we wish Fraser all the best as he heads East to further his studies. Both ripping young men.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge Ross McQueen and Keplar Bradley for their coaching efforts in 2017. Ross is an outstanding coach who could coach at any level in my opinion. The senior squad is the beneficiary of all his hard work to develop not only great people but quality footballers. We are very lucky to have him. And to Keplar who has one of the hardest jobs in football which is to motivate and keep positive players that at times aren’t happy with where they are as they strive to play League football. Kep continues to improve and is destined for greater things. I really appreciate the way they have got behind me and supported our philosophies. Well done to you both.

Bring on 2018!

Development Report: Ferocious Tigers Advance to Preliminary Final

Monday, September 11, 2017 - 10:17 AM

By Dan Scamozzi

Claremont’s Reserves advanced to the preliminary final after defeating Swan Districts by 25 points in the first semifinal at Fremantle Community Bank Oval.

The 12.12 (84) to 9.5 (59) win was set up by a five-goal-to-nil third term, with the Tigers now set to face Subiaco for the second time in three games, with the winner to face South Fremantle in the grand final.

The Tigers dominated most aspects of the game on the back of 129 more disposals (33 more contested), 70 more marks, 23 more inside 50s and 10 more scoring shots.

Dylan Holt finished as Claremont’s best player after his selfless performance was capped off with nine marks and an equal game-high three goals, with acting captain Tom Shanahan continuing his strong form and recording game-high hauls of 33 disposals and 12 marks.

John Williams marshalled the team across half-back and helped set the tone with his contested efforts around the ground, with Jacob Sideris also performing strongly.

Kaiden Gilbert hauled in eight marks and had a game-high seven inside 50s, with Max Bentley (23 disposals, five inside 50s) winning the players’ player award and Cameron Quenby laying a team-high eight tackles.

Chad Daniels (21 disposals, 10 tackles, one goal) was the only Swan to have 20 or more disposals, with Roderick Manton, Tom Smirk and Steven Wityk all kicking two goals as Swans saw their season come to an end.

With the Tigers kicking to the northern end of the ground in the opening term, a hot start to the game unfolded as both teams attacked the contest with vigour and applied constant pressure, before Eddie Simpson gave Claremont first blood at the seven-minute mark.

Brett Wilson kicked the Tigers’ second 11 minutes later, before a spearing pass from Lachlan Martinis set up Holt for the team’s third major and a 20-point lead approaching quarter-time.

With the Tigers dominating the majority of the opening term but missing gettable shots at goal, a late major to Smirk saw Swans close to within 14 points at the first change.

Coach Kepler Bradley lauded the team’s efforts in contested disposal (plus 17) and clearances (plus seven), with the Tigers also controlling the game through uncontested marks.

However, a lacklustre start to the second term saw Swans slam on four goals in the opening 10 minutes and take a nine-point lead.

Wilson responded for Claremont with his second major, before Wityk did likewise for Swans.

A thumping goal from the left-forward pocket from Nick Winmar gave the Tigers two of the last three majors, before Swans kicked a late goal after an undisciplined 50m penalty to take a seven-point lead at half-time.

With the Tigers needing to regroup and refocus, a second goal to Simpson after a great pass from Holt provided the perfect start to the second half, before Corey Mitchell put Claremont back in front after being found by Bentley.

A quick snap out of the pack gave Simpson his third and Claremont a 12-point lead, before Harry Sinclair, playing his first game since round 22, stormed into an open goal from a stoppage to give the Tigers four in a row.

A second to Holt capped off a scintillating term and saw the Tigers roar to a 24-point lead at the final change after restricting Swans to a solitary behind.

Despite a passionate plea from Bradley to finish off the game strongly, goals to David McKay and Smirk (second) saw Swans close to within nine points at the eight-minute mark of the final term and served as a reminder that the Tigers’ work was far from complete, before another booming goal to Winmar was set up by a great chase, tackle and pass from Williams.

Similar feats by Chris (CJ) Oakley and Tom Lawrence either side of a third goal to Holt capped off a fine win by the Tigers, and leaves the team just one win away from consecutive grand finals.

Meanwhile, Claremont’s Colts saw their three-game winning run ended by East Fremantle, 9.10 (64) to 12.7 (79), with the Tigers set to face East Perth in the preliminary final.

CLAREMONT 3.3 5.6 10.8 12.12 (84)

SWAN DISTRICTS 1.1 7.1 7.2 9.5 (59)


CLAREMONT: 3 D. Holt, E. Simpson, 2 B. Wilson, N. Winmar, 1 C. Mitchell, H. Sinclair.

SWAN DISTRICTS: 2 R. Manton, S. Wityk, T. Smirk, 1 C. Daniels, J. Nuich, E. Maguire.


CLAREMONT: D. Holt, T. Shanahan, J. Williams, J. Sideris, K. Gilbert.

SWAN DISTRICTS: B. Erceg, C. Daniels, B. McGillivray, E. Maguire, T. Yukich.

Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 9:03 AM

Claremont’s Reserves will be aiming to bounce back from their loss to Subiaco, while the Colts will be aiming to secure their fifth consecutive grand final appearance when the semifinals take place on Sunday.
