New Era Starts On 3 April 2022

The first Sunday in April 2022 will beckon in the eleventh Club into the Dale Alcock Homes South West, SWFL, when Dunsborough officially enter the competition.

The new club may not have a League team in 2022, but they will have a Colts, Reserves and Womens team in their opening season, which will start at home against Bunbury, which is sure to draw a massive crowd.

Dunsborough’s Home fixtures will see the Reserves play first at 11.40am, followed by the Women at 1.30pm, both traditional time slots, while the Colts will play in the League time slot of 3.00pm.  The clubs opening fixture however, all times will be brought forward one hour as to not clash with the Western Derby in the AFL, with the Colts to start at 2.00pm.

When playing away, the teams will play in the traditional slots of Colts (9.45am), Reserves (11.40am) and Women (1.30pm).

There has plenty of hype around Dunsborough entering the competition, and numbers have been solid at early training sessions.  After playing Bunbury, the Sharks will then play Carey Park, with the Panthers being the reigning Colts Champions.  The Clubs first venture away will be in round four against Eaton Boomers.

The Sharks will have six home fixtures in the first half of the season, and will spend four weeks on the road either side of a Club Bye, not returning to Dunsborough until round fifteen.  The club will finish their final two fixtures at home to complete the home and away season.
