West Perth have bolstered their playing stocks with former West Coast forward Andrew Strijk committing to the WAFL club for two seasons.

Carine product Strijk has played more than 100 games with the Falcons and will return to his club of origin.

He played 13 AFL games before being delisted by the Eagles in October.

West Perth chief executive Gerry O’Dea was delighted to secure the 25-year-old’s signature.

“Andrew is an outstanding WAFL player and has given this club excellent service,” O’Dea said.

“We are thrilled that he will remain with the club and become an integral part of our 2013 squad.”

Strijk joins former Docker Jay van Berlo as recently having committed to the club.

“Despite getting substantial offers from other clubs, these guys have shown there is still room for loyalty in football,” O’Dea said.

The Falcons have recruited well in the off-season, securing former Carlton half-forward Rohan Kerr, ex-Frankston big man Shaun Marusic and former Apsley half-back Trent Manzone.

Midfielder Steven Potente is also training with the Falcons while a clearance is negotiated with Swan Districts.
