Inaugural West Coast Eagles team member, Northampton-born Andrew Lockyer has been appointed to the Country Football WA board.

Lockyer was one of six candidates running for three open positions on the board, with Country Football WA announcing his appointment on Wednesday.

A member of the inaugural West Coast side in 1987, Lockyer played 78 games for the Eagles including the 1991 grand final loss against Hawthorn, on top of his 146 played for East Fremantle.

During his time with East Freo, Lockyer won three WAFL premierships in 1985, 1992 and 1994.

After his playing career, Lockyer went on to be a senior coach at West Perth and East Fremantle coach, assistant coach at Subiaco and also had two stints as State 18s coach, leading the side to a national title in 2009.

Recently, Lockyer started a fundraising initiative known as the AFL Rams, helping victims of Cyclone Seroja in the Mid West.

The Northampton product helped raise $36,000 for junior football in the Mid West and was involved with bringing the successful East Fremantle against East Perth WAFL match to Geraldton in 2022 and 2023.
