WEST Perth has restructured its football department with pre-season training less than a month away.
The restructure follows the departure of football operations manager Jamie Ball, who has resigned, having been at the WAFL club since 2012.
Chief executive David Crute praised Ball for his work over that time.
‘He can be extremely proud of his contribution to the club in a time where we won our first league premiership since 2003, our first reserves premiership since 1954 and first Sandover Medal since Neil Mildenhall in 1993,’ he said.
Player development manager Ward Harris has been promoted to football operations manager in place of Ball, but in a revised role.
The club has created a new position titled ‘football operations co-ordinator’ that will be filled by WACA development employee Casey Haw.
Haw will be responsible for training and match-day operations from development squads to seniors.
League coach Bill Monaghan will expand his coaching efforts into local schools.
WAFC officer Jessica Eddy will join the Falcons as football operations administrator.
Pre-season training begins November 24.
