East Freo moving to the WACA. The WAFL becomes even more geographically confusing.
West Perth - Arena Joondalup
Subiaco - Leederville Oval
East Perth - Leederville Oval
Perth - Lathlain
South Fremantle - Fremantle Oval
East Fremantle - WACA in East Perth

Makes perfect sense

Perth sign Ajang Ajang in a deal that sees Elijah Taylor go to the Royals.

Stoked with that, think he’s a very handy player with plenty of upside. Not too late to jump on board the Demons wagon everybody! Ainsworth awaits you!

WAFL clubs have recruitment and players movements a bit more fluid and aren't locked in by drafts and cut off dates, so still plenty of time to build a team before the season starts.

So a few more details for the Beagles
-Will be in the WAFL for at least 3 more seasons
-Will be able to recruit one player from each of the other WAFL clubs
-5 home games at Lathlain

There's more behind the paywall at The West but I can't see it
Can only recruit a player from another WAFL club outside of their primary list of 37. So basically the 38th best player at each WAFL club.

I think the question is whether the costs of running the reserves are part of the football department soft cap, which was what was killing us, particularly with the license fee.

I assume they are part of the soft cap because that’s a matter for the AFL, not the WAFL. But has it been reported what the license fee will be under this new deal?

Target undrafted players who are unlikely to slot into their WAFL league sides next year. Max Chipper types.

Kind of like a season long loan. Be good for their development.
Agreed, apparently we can sign one from each club that isn't listed in the other clubs best 37. Max Chipper type is perfect, sign for Beagles and if he develops later we've had a really good look at him.

Should be a few like this:

Chipper - SD
Regan - EP
Farmer - Subiaco
McVee - E.Freo
Stretch - Claremont
Paton - West Perth (although I think he'll probably be drafted)

Can't think of a Perth, South Freo or Peel example but these would be some handy acquisitions if we could land them.
