Joel is a past player of the club, making 73 appearance between 2014 and 2022 for the Eagles. Joel joined the coaching panel of the Reserves in 2021 as an Assistant to Thomas Black, where he helped guide the team to consistent success including their recent Preliminary Final appearance. Further to this, Joel also sits on the club committee as our Treasurer in which he has played an instrumental role in helping turn the clubs financial position.
