New Life Member

It is our great pleasure to announce that Paul Buswell has been awarded South Bunbury Football Club’s Life Membership!

From humble beginnings in 1986 as a Colts Tiger, Paul accrued 43 League & 160 Reserves games & accolades. He then continued to contribute to the club via numerous game day roles & positions; from Reserves Assistant Coach to trainer, water-boy, runner & Team Manager for each & every grade.

Paul then joined the Board of Management in 2011 as Football Director for 5 years & not content with the rigours of the role (not limited to recruitment, contracts, match day organization & statistics); he also undertook Ground Marking for the club’s prestigious oval.

Fellow Life Member & nominator Trevor Rose concluded that, “Paul is the type of person whom Clubs are built around & his services to the South Bunbury Football Club cannot be underestimated… the quality of his involvement over the past 30 years makes him a worthy life member”.

Tigers boost tall stocks as Demon heads home

South Bunbury has boosted its big man stocks with the addition of former Perth and Swan Districts utility Brent Latch to the team for this season.

The 25-year-old is the first big signing for the Tigers in 2018, with coach David Obal confirming the club had also been able to re-sign Kyle Hams and Leigh Kohlmann.

Latch played 22 league games for Swan Districts between 2012 and 2014 before making the switch to the Demons, where he has been a regular with 46 league games in three seasons.

Obal said Latch’s versatility as a key position player was what he was looking for.

“He has played as a key back and a key forward at WAFL level,” he said.

“Obviously that brings versatility with him. He can play at both ends of the ground as well as through the middle.

“Height is always going to be an advantage. When you look at (Brady) London and Kohlmann as well, we have some talls.

“We are also talking to some other possible recruits who are up around the 190cm mark in height.”

Obal said Latch had played some of his junior football at the Tigers and he wanted to return to the club his career started as well.

“He only played a few junior games I am led to believe,” he said.

“He had a basketball background and then worked his way into football at the WAFL level.”

Obal has also signed his son Travis, who has been playing in the West Australian Amateur Football League in Perth after leaving Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault.

The hard-running midfielder will add depth to the Tigers’ engine room.

Obal said the team was looking good on the track ahead of a big season.

“We have had 40 or more players most nights which is great,” he said.

“There has been a lot of variety (in our training).

“We have done boxing, swimming and running.

“I have varied it up every week so they are not doing the same mundane things.”
