2018 ECE Season Launch


Born in the West and now returning to his old Eastern stomping ground, Karl Merson has always been an Eagle.

Born in Western Australia, where AFL Football is a bona fide way of life, the man known as ‘Kouta’ is back at the East Coast Eagles, hell bent on causing havoc for opposition on-ballers through the Eagles midfield 2018.

Get in his way at your own peril, because ‘Kouta’ is ready to rip in.

As an imposing strong and powerful competitor, that can play dynamic roles in both the star-studded midfield and forward line, that the Eagles are set to unleash in 2018; Merson is set to become a key figure in the East Coast line-up come Round 1 and beyond.

Merson grew up as a mad Carlton Blues supporter and ultimately an Anthony Koutoufides fanboy, lead to the aforementioned nickname ‘Kouta’ in which he’s carried throughout his footballing career. A career, mind you, that has lead Merson to fair stints playing in the WAFL (Western Australian Football League) as well as to the NEAFL (North East Australian Football League) where he played for the GWS Giants in their pre-AFL days. Most recently however, the journeyman has been lighting it up in the Sydney AFL, a competition he claims is continuing to grow in strength, each year closing the gap on other football leagues around Australia.

Recruited back to the Rouse Hill based club, from arch rivals St George Dragons for the 2018 season, Merson knows from his years previously playing for the Eagles in the Under 18s; what the expectations are at East Coast.

When asked what he expects from both himself and the club in 2018, as well as how he has found pre-season, Merson especially credited new coach Lindsay Scown for reinvigorating the clubs strong culture, in his reply:

“The potential of the squad is immense, with so many talented players.

For me, my goals are to play strong consistent footy. Its definitely the main thing I like to focus on at a personal level.

Obviously if you are able to contribute every week it will help the team out as a whole.

In regards to the goals of the team, I along with the rest of the playing group aspire to and are desperate to win a Premiership.

Obviously the club had a disappointing 2017, however, it’s been obvious throughout pre season with Lindsay joining the club that a Premiership is the ultimate expectation.

Pre season has been awesome! As I said with Lindsay taking the reins he has really given a clear direction to the group. Also with new Strength and Conditioning coach Geoff Wood taking care of the fitness side of things all the boys are ready and keen to rip into the season”

Despite playing alongside the likes of 2017 Sydney AFL Team of the Year members Mark Weekes, Kieren Emery and last year’s Club Champion Stuart Turner, Karl Merson is without doubt the man to watch out of East Coast in 2018; as they embark on their climb back to the top of the rankings in the Sydney AFL.

“I’m ready to rip in” – Karl Merson

Trust me, I wouldn’t want to tackle him.

EAGALS 2018 Pre-Season Update from new coach Phil Bester

This time last year saw a new chapter was beginning for the East Coast Eagles, in the formation of the clubs first ever women’s team.

The majority of the team had never even picked up and Australian Rules football, but by end of season the Eagals, as they have become known, went down in an elimination final but could hold their heads high on a great performance and season.

Fast forward to February 2018 and the Eagals have been hard at work training since November and on February 10 held a team day.

The team day was made up of a grueling fitness session, run by 2017 star rookie Emily Goodsir, followed by a 2 hour session where everything football related was discussed, finishing with a team BBQ at the Ford Family House.

After a long pre-season, the Eagals are looking forward to Round 1 and hope to see all our great supporters down at Kanebridge cheering them on, as the continue to make headlines and push towards the top of the ladder.
