The Augusta-Margaret River star who led his side to a first South West Football League premiership in a decade last year will return to the club for a third season. Former Subiaco midfielder Simon Moore won both the Hayward Medal for the league’s best and fairest and the Pike Medal for best-on-ground in his side’s famous grand final triumph during a remarkable 2021 campaign. But now he says he has his sights set firmly on helping the Hawks replicate the club’s halcyon days of the mid 1990s and go back-to-back. “The lure of trying to back up the success of last year was definitely there,” Moore said. “You could see with the boys straight away, they celebrated really well and then some of those guys got back into training straight away. “We are keen to show it wasn’t a fluke and it is something that will be sustained across time, which will be really nice.” Moore was a premiership player with the Lions in 2018 — part of the club’s incredible run at the peak of WAFL football which has spanned the best part of a decade — and said lessons from the dynasty years at Subiaco will be implemented at the Hawks. “It is about celebrating everyone at the club,” he said. “That means the youngest player in the colts to the oldest player on the list, the administrators and the people that help out behind the bar. “It is that ‘one club, one dream’ motto that made Subi such a successful club over such a long period of time and this is the sort of attitude we want to have down here.” The 2021 success was a first flag for the Hawks in any grade since 2011 and marked an incredible and surprising rebound. The club missed the finals in 2020 after the departure of another Hayward medallist Mitch Lynn, but with captain and defensive centrepiece Lincoln Adams and coach Matt Jamieson backed in at the helm, plus some astute recruiting, they shot straight to the top. “It was hard to script that situation, coming from outside the finals, and no one would have tipped us to even go close last year,” Moore said. “It was a fantastic result for the club as a whole, the colts and reserves had some really good results at the end of last season as well. “The club in a whole is in a really good state. “Down here I was able to work hard, put a bit of time into my own game and adjust to the South West league.” The Hawks will unveil their flag at Gloucester Park on the opening night of the season when they meet Busselton in a grand final rematch.
