Thunderbirds have 14 new players this year, with the majority having claims for the League squad, which suggests they will have much stronger depth, with sights set on yet another finals campaign.

It won’t be all smooth sailing, as the club looks likely to have seven players in the State Under-18s squad, with a third of the starting 18 out for the critical fifth and sixth- round games against South and East Fremantle, also vying for finals positions.

The club has taken another leap forward with the introduction of a third side that will participate in the newly formed WAWFL Youth Girls competition for players aged 13-16.

The Thunderbirds are also likely to have their first senior State squad player this year, showing the young list is developing fast. Announcements on these State squads will be made in coming weeks.

During the off season the club announced League coach Russell Swanson had been reappointed for a further three years, showing confidence from the club and the coach of this talented player group’s potential.

The club has also developed a Peel Thunderbirds Facebook fan page to update results, fixtures and news. It’s never too late to join the Peel Thunderbirds. Email an expression of interest to peel.thunder birds@wawfl.com.au.
