Jacks hit the track for 2017

Posted on December 17, 2016 in 'News'

ECU Joondalup started their preparation for the 2017 PS4NPLWA season with the senior sides returning for pre-season training on December 6. There were a number of new faces on the track as Dale McCulloch and the coaching staff put the players through their paces.

McCulloch said it’s good to get back into it. “The players looked sharp and we’re really pleased with their work over the off-season, and it’s really apparent they believe we have some unfinished business next season,” he said.

“It’s good to see some new faces down, and we’re still talking to more players about joining us for 2017, but everyone knows it’s a new start and spots are up for grabs, and the players are on notice, but we’re delighted with the squad and it’s exciting times ahead.”

There has been plenty of work going on behind the scenes at the club, with a new reserves coach and 18’s coach and McCulloch said it’s full steam ahead as they look to start the season how they finished last.

“All three teams had a fantastic second half of last season, and the first team went unbeaten in the league and we gave it a good crack in the West Australian Top Four Finals,” he said.  “It’s been a long off-season and we are determined to improve on last season, and like I’ve said we’ll leave no stone unturned to bring success to this football club.”
