Dockers, Eagles work on reserves plan
West Coast and Fremantle have another three weeks to provide the West Australian Football Commission with their proposals for reserves teams in the WAFL.
The WAFC said today it expected to receive a formal submission from the Eagles and the Dockers on May 31 “outlining their proposal for the future of AFL listed players in the West Australian Football League”.
The proposals would then be presented to the WAFL clubs at a breakfast briefing convened by the WAFC on June 2.
Board members, chief executives, coaches and football managers from each of the WAFL clubs, as well as executives from the Community Football Council, WA Amateur Football League and WA Country Football League, and all District chairmen (metro and country) will be invited to attend this presentation.
WAFL clubs will then have six weeks to consider the proposal and provide responses to the WAFC.
The WAFC will then make a recommendation on the proposal. A time frame has not been set for this determination.
If the proposal is recommended by the WAFC, the WAFL clubs will be required to vote on the final outcome. A majority vote is required for the proposal to be accepted.
