Russell Ellen came from Essendon. We also picked Brian Perrin. Correct me if im wrong. West Perth picked up Peter Murnane the same season that Gary Buckenara went to Hawthorn. I believe Subiaco wouldnt release Buckennara. Its always intrigued me, why didnt Subiaco get Murnane and do a swap. Murnane apparently walked into Leederville oval and the rest is history.

Southerner, Ian Thomson was actually an East Perth player before and after his South Melbourne career.
After leaving the Royals at the end of 1978, I believe he was playing Sunday League when Brad Smith lured him to East Fremantle during the 1979 season.
Thommo came back to haunt the Royals when he kicked seven goals in Old Easts' two-point win in the 79 first semi.

I can remember seeing Thompson playing with East Perth and East Fremantle. Im sure he played full forward/ center half forward.

Used to be great in those days when a club could grab a player from the east or the bush and play him mid season. If your key positional player went down the player manager would get on the phone or take a drive to a farm and pick someone up. Graham Seaby & Mick Rea were two players that come to mind.

Dean Herbert - Perth
Vince Catoggio - Subiaco
John Wise - South Fremantle
Noel Carter - South Fremantle
Wayne Delmenico - South Fremantle
Ian Thomson - East Fremantle
Colin Waterson - Perth/East Fremantle
Bruce Tschirpig - East Fremantle/Perth
Wayne Duke - East Perth/Claremont
Ben Jager - West Perth
John Begg - Subiaco/South Fremantle

Can't remember what year Gordon Casey went to Swan Districts - might have been 1978

1976 Southy I believe he came over with Stuart Magee.
Compared to other WAFL clubs we never had too many ex VFL players over the years Darryl Sutton in 1981 was one.

Thomson started at East Peth in 1967 after following his brother Gordon (1963/64) to the Club.

I thought Ian Cooper from St Kilda around early 70's was a good pick up for Swans.

I remember one year Souths almost had, I think it was Daryl Griffith , from Saint Kilda. We were recruiting him as coach, but some how Claremont snuck in under us and he played for the.
I think it was Griffith.
