WHEN it comes to things we love in Perth, few things rate higher than footy.

And what better way to highlight our passion for the great game than by getting our two teams – the West Coast Eagles and the Fremantle Dockers – on board as part of #SnapPerth 2016.

Eagles coach Adam Simpson may have only lived in Perth for three years, but has already developed a fondness for the sense of community he feels in our great city.

“We live really close to Subiaco so I can walk to work – which can be a good thing and a bad thing,” he said.

Having moved across from Melbourne to take the top job at the Eagles, Simpson said he, his wife and his four children enjoyed hitting up City Beach during the warmer months.

“We love the café strip feel too – there are some really great coffee places around Subiaco and West Leederville,” he said.

Fremantle mascot Johnny Docker threw his weight behind the #SnapPerth campaign in place of head coach Ross Lyon – who is away on leave.

Johnny, unsurprisingly, enjoys surfing and swimming at Freo’s South Beach during the summer.

“If I am not at the beach, you’ll find me at Fremantle Oval, having a kick to kick with my sister Jenny Docker,” he said.
