Basile to coach Fremantle CBC

Monday, February 18, 2019 - 9:10 AM

Fremantle CBC’s A Grade side will be led this year by long time club servant Chris Basile.

Basile started playing Colts with the Fremantle CBC Amateur Football Club in 2005 before a short stint in the WAFL with East Fremantle.

He returned to the club playing 150 games, was named a Life Member and captained the A Grade side from 2014-2017.

Chris won the CJ Jamieson Medal as the association Best & Fairest in 2016 and 2017 as well as winning the Fremantle CBC best and fairest six times, making him the most celebrated player in the Club's 87-year history.

His coaching career started in 2012 when he was assistant coach of the East Fremantle Colts for two seasons as well as being an assistant coach of the Fremantle CBC colts in 2014 and 2015.

Fremantle CBC president Brad Grant said that “Chris was an exceptional captain of our club, his on field performances were often inspirational and although many champion footballers fail to excel when coaching I have no doubt Chris will make the transition a successful one”.

“Watching him coach in the preseason reinforces that opinion and we are wrapped to have him leading us this year” said Grant.

Basile takes over from Ben Taggart who led the side for three seasons, which included reaching the A Grade Grand Final last season.
