West Coast Eagle Jamaine Jones will front court on Friday over drink driving charges.

The 23-year-old fringe forward is due to face the Perth Magistrate on one count of drive with excess 0.08 blood alcohol content.

Court documents show Jones has already entered an endorsed guilty plea to the charge.

The records show the offence took place in Lathlain – the same suburb as the Eagles’ headquarters and training ground – on September 14.

A West Coast Eagles statement said the club said was “bitterly disappointed with Jones’ actions.”

“Jones informed the club immediately at the time of the offence and the matter will now be dealt with by the legal system,” the statement said.

“The club is bitterly disappointed with Jones’ actions and will review the incident after the hearing with the likelihood of a separate sanction.

“There is no excuse for getting behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol and Jones is extremely remorseful for this serious error of judgement.

“The club will make no further comment on the matter at this stage.”
