West Coast’s new recruits faced added pressure at training on Friday morning, with incoming chief executive Don Pyke watching over the gruelling session. The families of the new Eagles, including No.1 pick Harley Reid, were also at Mineral Resources Park, watching over as the draftees and recruits hit the track on a scorching first day of summer. The highly-touted teenager looked unburdened despite reports of a minor hamstring issue on Wednesday as he joined teammates for a range of running and skills work, only breaking away as the team got stuck into match simulation. He showed off his silky skills, flicking a footy up with his feet with a Ronaldo-like touch. The 18-year-old was one of a handful of draftees and recruits to take part in the club’s spin-and-kick for goal challenge, usually reserved for a player’s birthday - with most butchering their shots. On a positive note early in the pre-season, almost the entire squad trained on Friday with senior players Jeremy McGovern and Elliot Yeo turning back the clock. The club was also joined by WAFL recruits Jason Gilbee and Trey Ruscoe, as well as Bailey Banfield, the son of premiership Eagle Drew. The only concerns for West Coast were rookie Tyrell Dewar, whose day ended early as he left the oval with an iced left ankle, and young midfielder Elijah Hewett, who watched on late in the session. Hewett was spotted having a lengthy chat with Pyke on the sidelines, as other Eagles stopped by on their way back to the sheds. At the close of the session, newly announced co-captains Oscar Allen and Liam Duggan both spoke to the CEO, who is set to officially step into the role in January. He previously served as an assistant coach at Sydney for the past three seasons. Pyke was seen throughout the session checking in with coach Adam Simpson, who was vocal as he put the players through their paces. The Eagles will head to the south west next week for a community camp, another opportunity for the draftees to bond with new teammates before the group disbands again for Christmas break.
