Subi Exceeds Local Benchmark

Football Operations Manager Luke Sanders has attributed Subiaco's strong 2015 premiership defence to development and strategic list building. 

With the league benchmark of locally sourced players at 70% Subiaco's focus on their talent pathways continues to pay dividends. 

Subi have played 38 players in 2015 with 23 of them hailing from their own district zones. 

“Our goal has always been to develop our younger/next-tier players to ensure the success of the club in the future years, said Sanders

“There's a big group of players who have emerged from our talent pathway and are at an important stage of their footballing careers.

"It’s up to the staff and coaches at the Subiaco Football Club to ensure their progress continues and we continue to provide quality, locally grown players." added Sanders 

Subiaco have one of the smallest recruitment zones in the WAFL and Sanders believes focusing on development and a keen eye for talent helps to balance it out.

“Traditionally we’ve had a very small zone with less players to choose from so it’s up to us to invest in our local players and our talent pathway which we do well through our transition programs,

“We've also focused on developing the young talent that we've been able to source from other areas,

"We’ve found guys that weren’t playing league football like Declan Jackson, Joel Latham, Dylan Elliott, Braden Fimmano and Shane Yarran and given them opportunities they may not have previously given. “ Added Sanders

 

Subi youngsters Hayden Kennedy and Charlie Le Fanu have stepped up in 2015. 

The Lions attracted some discussion earlier in the season due to an extensive list change-over which brought eight recruits to the club.

“We’ve operated within the rules of the points system and we were able to recruit players over the off-season. We understand player values are determined through the points system and at no point have we breached any WAFL rule.” Said Sanders

“We identified recruiting areas that we needed to fill due to retirements and transfers after 2014 and strongly backed our locally produced talent to fill the voids along with a host of experienced players who were recommended to our club.”

Subiaco have six interstate players in 2015 (Brett Mahoney, Wayde Twomey, Matt Boland, Lachlan Delahunty, Leigh Kitchin and Brett Robinson) and Sanders re-iterates their ability to attract quality recruits to a strong network of Subi alumni.  

“We don’t specifically target players from other states but our recruiting network around Australia is strong. That’s made up of former players, coaches and people involved with the club who identify talent around the country.” Said Sanders

“The ability to provide the opportunity for players on the field is one thing but to also provide stability, employment and a professional football environment is what sets you apart.”
 
“Most of the interstate players that have transferred to Subiaco have had a personal connection or recommendation and that comes from developing a strong culture and the players willingness to transfer.” Added Sanders
 
In comparison to the rest of the WAFL Subiaco sits on par for inter-state recruits. West Perth currently have seven listed interstate players, Claremont five and East Fremantle four.
