2019 Fixtures Released

The South West Football League have released the fixtures for the 2019 season, which will see many changes compared to the 2018 fixturing.

This season there will be 43 Saturday matches compared to 46 in 2018, however the number of night matches has been reduced significantly to just 21.

Another change this year will be that four Women’s matches will be played last across the duration of the season, which will mean there will be League fixtures this season starting at 1.10pm, 2.20pm, 2.30pm, 3.20pm, 4.30pm or 4.40pm dependent on who is playing who and where.

The Foundation Day Derby, a marquee game for the South West Football League will not be on the Public Holiday Monday, and will be played on a Sunday.

The fixtures are also not quite a true home and away with the same teams playing in rounds eight and fourteen. (instead of round eight and seventeen).  This was due to a number of factors.

The season will start a week earlier than last season on Saturday, 6 April 2019 with four Saturday matches, with three Byes across the season, one for Easter, one for GTM and one for Landmark.

Augusta Margaret River do not have any Twilight Matches at home in 2019, with just two away twilight matches for the season.

Bunbury will have four twilight fixtures, their first home game is in round three against reigning champions Donnybrook.

Busselton have four twilight fixtures and three league fixtures in the Late Afternoon time slot of 3.30pm to allow the Women’s matches to play last.

Carey Park have six games at night, with their first home fixture in round three.

Collie Eagles play the least amount of Twilight fixtures – just one in round five against Harvey Bulls, have 10 Saturday fixtures, five of which are at home.

Donnybrook will play their first two games at home, and play Bunbury in round three at PC Payne Park.

Eaton Boomers have just three twilight fixtures and have the most Sunday games of any club with twelve.

Harvey Brunswick Leschenault have six twilight fixtures, all by round ten, and have eleven Saturday fixtures.

Harvey Bulls won’t play a day game until round six, and have 7 twilight fixtures in total.

South Bunbury have the equal highest amount of twilight games along with the Bulls, with seven under lights.

Full fixtures are on the website, round by round, while team fixtures can be found of the Club page, again round by round.

Katie-Jayne Grieve

South Bunbury Football Club product Katie-Jayne Grieve shone for Fremantle during Sunday’s four-point 9.5 (59) to 8.7 (55) AFLW opening-round victory over Melbourne in oppressive heat at Casey Fields in Melbourne.

Grieve, who played her first AFLW match since returning to WA from a stint at Carlton, generated plenty of forward pressure late in the game which stifled the Demons’ ability to move the ball down the ground.

Much has been made publicly of Grieve’s decision to return home to WA, however many may be unaware of how she still carries core elements of her experience with the Tigers at SWFL women’s level.

“Something that I’ve taken from my time with South Bunbury is just to enjoy football,” she said.

“Because that is where it started for me – just enjoying football – and being able to carry that with me professionally to AFLW level has definitely helped me.”

Grieve outlined the major difference between training at SWFL women’s level and AFLW – intensity.

“The intensity is incredible,” she said. ”But the drills are definitely short and sharp as well. We also go back to basics with skill-based level activities because that is where we need to start from with football – just go back to basics.

“The intensity is massive and I really enjoy the skill base that we learn as well.”

Like her teammate Philipa Seth, Grieve is keen to give back to the South West football community and hopes to cheer on the Tigers whenever possible during the year.

“I’ve been trying to make it to some of their training sessions and I’ve been speaking to their new coach. But unfortunately I haven’t had the time as their pre-season has just started.

“But definitely when our season finishes, I’ll be heading down there for sure.”

Fremantle face the Brisbane Lions at Fremantle Oval on Sunday.
