FESTIVAL OF FOOTBALL TO HIGHLIGHT RETURN TO WAFL FOOTBALL

Tuesday, July 7, 2020 - 12:05 PM

THIS has already been a year like no other but the excitement is building ahead of the return to somewhat normality and to celebrate that, not only will Fremantle Community Bank Oval host a Fremantle Derby but it's transformed into the Festival of Football.

There is no bigger, longer or more traditional rivalry in all of sport in Western Australia than that which exists between South Fremantle and East Fremantle so it's only fitting that the WAFL's return in 2020 is highlighted by a Fremantle Derby on Saturday July 18 at Fremantle Community Bank Oval.

But this is no usual Round 1 match up given everything that 2020 has already thrown our way and as a result, it is going to be no usual derby day that the Bulldogs will be hosting down at the port as we celebrate the return to football for the new season.

HUNGER FOR PREMIERSHIP BRINGS EDWARDS BACK TO THE BULLDOGS

Friday, June 19, 2020 - 1:38 PM - by Chris Pike

STEVEN Edwards had a tremendous three-year stint at South Fremantle up until taking a break in 2019, but the pull to return to the Bulldogs was there the whole time and now after a delayed start, he can't wait to get things rolling in 2020.

Having initially moved to Perth from Albany, Edwards began his WAFL journey at Claremont but joined South Fremantle ahead of the 2016 season and went on to produce three terrific seasons.

In teams that reached preliminary finals in each of the 2016, 2017 and 2018 WAFL campaigns, Edwards was a key cog in the wheel at the Bulldogs largely settling into a role as a small defender who was creative, and capable of setting up play coming out of the back-line.

PROUD CURLEY WANTS TO REWARD BULLDOGS FAITHFUL

Thursday, June 11, 2020 - 2:03 PM - by Chris Pike

SOUTH Fremantle coach Todd Curley has been blown away by the support the Bulldogs have received during the COVID-19 enforced delay to the WAFL season and can't wait to reward those fans, members and sponsors when action resumes.

There's no secret that the delayed start to the 2020 WAFL season thanks to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic raised some concerns over the financial viability of some clubs in the competition given the inability to bring any money in.

But at South Fremantle, the sponsors have reconfirmed their support to the club and then the fans have signed up in large numbers as members with the initial target of 1750 having now been reached for the first time in a decade.
