DEPUTIES: Cody Grace, Rhys McAlister, Andrew Vawser & James Hughes
Declan Jackson, Hayden Kennedy, Mitch Turner and Cody Grace all originate from the country, with Kennedy and Turner being Goldfields products from Mines Rovers and Cody Grace from Railways.
Jackson originates from Collie and moved to Perth in 2012 for his university studies. The strongly built key defender played 15 Colts games in 2012 and enjoyed a top 10 finish the Taylor Medal. Coach Steve Armstrong recognised Jackson’s qualities, “Declan is the sort of guy that all Colts players look to for leadership when the going gets tough. He is the type who will lead by example and he is held in high esteem by the players, coaches and support staff for the manner in which he prepares himself.”
Rhys McAlister and Andrew Vawser are local metro products from Kingsway and Warwick-Greenwood, while James Hughes moved to Subiaco from East Fremantle in 2012.
All seven players will attend the seniors jumper presentation on Saturday 16th March at Subiaco Oval, where they will be announced to the members.
