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.

Collie To Start At Home Against The Dons

Collie will start 2022 with a home fixture against Donnybrook at the Collie Recreation Ground, with the Eagles playing all of their home games on a Sunday throughout the season.

The Eagles will play three times on a Saturday, all away to Harvey Bulls, Carey Park and Augusta Margaret River, all within the first six weeks, before becoming a staple Sunday team for the rest of the season.

Due to the uneven number of teams and ground availability, the Eagles will spend four weeks away from home between round nine and twelve, but then will play four of their next five games at home through the second half of the season.

Collie will play the Lions at home in round 21, and will have the bye in round 22.
