South West-based budding AFLW players will have the special opportunity to strut their stuff in front of AFLW recruiters as the West Coast Eagles embark on a regional talent search.

The West Coast Eagles recently announced the club will be holding an Eagles AFLW Regional Talent Search for the South West and Lower South West regions, with a trial at Bunbury’s Hands Oval on Wednesday, December 14.

In a statement, the club said it was “seeking talented athletes and footballers aged 15 years to 30 years”, with those interested encouraged to apply online before the session.

The West Coast Eagles already has several AFLW players who have ties to the South West in Margaret River young gun Ella Roberts, former South Bunbury Tiger Ella Smith and former Carey Park Panther Beth Schilling.

The Eagles will be looking to bounce back from a less-than-ideal season seven campaign, where they finished 16th on the ladder with a 2-8 record.
