So East Fremantle lose part of their zone to these guys and don’t have access to Geraldton? That’s harsh. Man!
VICTORIA PARK ACES
The final expansion team saw the Victoria Park Aces born in 2008 - a name representing both the close proximity to the Perth Airport (flying aces), and the Burswood casino complex located within the city boundaries. The Aces play out of the suburban Lathlain Park, and entered the league in a striking black and orange striped design - which in the years following has gone from black to navy blue with the stripes being angled representing a plane taking off, in the same way the club aims to take off. The club represents not only Victoria Park, but the Belmont and Canning areas - Canning missing out on a standalone team to Victoria Park when the expansion was taking place, as Albany Highway runs through Victoria Park and into the City of Canning, thus the WAFC deemed that Victoria Park would represent the entirety of the south-east suburbs. Still without a premiership in their short history, the club has the likes of Charlie Cameron, Jake Waterman, Eric Mackenzie and Rhys Palmer on their playing list.
