Newsmaker: RON Alexander

RON Alexander is back for another five-year term as director general of the Department of Sport and Recreation.

The one-time Western Australian Football League champion has played a key role in developing and implementing the State Sporting Facilities Plan, which is a 20-year blueprint for facility development.

Part of that plan has turned Perth Oval into Perth Glory’s new home, Tom Batemen Reserve in Gosnells is to become a new permanent home for baseball and Leederville Oval has been turned into a football centre of excellence.

Ironically, Leederville Oval, once the home of the now Joondalup-based West Perth, has become home to its bitter rival East Perth, which had to vacate Perth Oval to make way for Perth Glory. Subiaco is also a co-tenant at Leederville Oval.

Mr Alexander has also been chosen to chair a group of all of the director generals of sport in Australia.
