New General Manager Announced

The South West Football League have appointed Jason Crowe as its new General Manager after the resignation of Simone Nani from the role in September.  Crowe was appointed to the role after being ratified by the Club Delegates at a recently convened meeting to finalise the position.

Jason has an extensive background in Football, most notably as arguably Western Australia’s most experienced and decorated Goal Umpire, having officiated in 1488 games since 1994, including 19 SWFL League Grand Finals, 8 GNFL League Grand Finals and 14 Landmark League Grand Finals. He has umpired 994 games in the SWFL which is an all time record and is a Life Member of the Umpires Association.  Jason also served as SWFL Umpires Association President for eleven years, bringing a high level of professionalism to the Umpiring Department, where he also served in the last two years as the Umpires Board Delegate to the SWFL.

Aside from Umpiring Jason has worked on a casual basis with the SWFL for the past six years, maintaining the website, statistical records, awards and facebook pages on game day, and has a vast array on knowledge of the local football landscape.

“I am excited to be given the role, and it is not lost on me the enormity of the position and the inevitable comparisons that will be made to previous persons who have held the General Managers role, but I will put my own stamp on the position, and will ensure I do it to the best of my ability, serving all member clubs, the umpires and the SWFL Executive”.

After a 31 year career in Banking, Jason hopes to bring much of that knowledge and discipline with him into the role, which he will commence on Monday, 15 November 2021.

Games Record Holder Joins Hall of Fame

If loyalty was the only criteria to be become a South West Football League member, then Shaun O’Callaghan would be certainly on the list.

If service to your Club and football then he would be a very strong candidate for the honour.  Carey Park Football and Sporting Club were proud to nominate Shaun O’Callaghan to join the ranks of the SWFL Hall of Fame, an honour bestowed on him, last Sunday during the SWFL Grand Final.

Shaun is well known throughout as the SWFL games record holder. He played 370 League games for Carey Park.

His remarkable games record was with one Club and illustrates his football loyalty over many seasons.  Shaun came to Carey Park from the Marist Juniors to play Colts.  It wasn’t long before the League coach, Errol Barrett saw the potential Shaun showed.  At the tender age of sixteen, he made his League debut for the Panthers after that day first having already played a Colts game.

That day was followed by an illustrious career that earned plaudits from all in the South West football community.  He was to go on to play a further 369 games and indoing so setting a SWFL record number of League games played.  His record number of games were played with an impeccable record that saw him never suspended thus, demonstrating his great sense of fair play.

Shaun’s playing record saw him win the Harris Medal (Club Fairest and Best ) in 1983, 1984, 1985, 1989 and 1993. He turned to coaching and coached the Carey Park league team in 1991, 1992 and 1993.  In addition, he captained the League team on numerous occasions.  During his long career he represented the SWFL many times where he played with distinction.  In 1999 he played an active part in the SWFL’s Governor’s Cup campaign in the WAFL pre-Season competition.  In this competition he worked closely alongside coach Darrel Panizza.

For his contribution to football on and off the field he was awarded Life Membership of the SWFL.  Carey Park made him a Life Member for his impressive playing record, his loyalty and his contribution to the game at many levels.

The term an ornament to the game fits comfortably with Shaun O’Callaghan making him an ideal candidate for the SWFL Hall of Fame, an honour now he so richly deserves.
