Builder BCL Broke - WC Eagles Stuck

Post by grassy1 » Thu Feb 22, 2018 2:13 pm

Perth’s Co-tenant At Lathlain Park in the Eagles has a bit of a problem.So do we!

The Builder BCL has gone Bust,following Cooper and Oxley’s trip to the receiver.

The Main Oval had been reconfigured,the mini MCG had been built out the back,where the main Car Park was.The Southern side of the ground had been cleared of trees and spectator shed to make way for the Eagles’ Admin.

At the moment,they are camped on one side of Subiaco Oval,in the Billy Walker Room(Northern side),having to relocate from the Roberts Rd(South)side of the ground,to make way for the building of Hawkey’s old school,Perth Modern School.

Their new Admin at Lathlain Park is a combination of Concrete and still mainly sand.

Which means the demolition and rebuild of our Grandstand may well be put on hold for awhile.

This is our last season in our current set up.I dare say,instead of basing ourselves in the Eagles Admin building next year,we might have to temporarily base our Admin at say,The Town of Victoria Park,whilst playing at other grounds in the Southern Suburbs,or spend a year at The WACA,our old Home Ground until 1958 and then for 2 years,1987/88.

Interesting times ahead.

There is one small possibility,however very small.

With backing from the New Stadium’s local Council(that’s our’s,despite the City of Perth’s attempts for a massive land grab),the Dees could end up at Perth Stadium for a year.The WACA would be more likely.

Be most interesting to see if the Timekeeper’s Booth is bigger and better than Subi Oval.

Hopefully it is,but apart from WAFL Grand Fimal Day,the likelihood of Your’s Truly Blowing the Siren there,is probably less than 1%. :roll: :lol:
