About Me

A diehard Fitzroy supporter, I've never forgiven the AFL for its "clinical execution" of the RoyBoys. Thankfully, I have WAFL club East Perth, for whom I'm privileged to be the voluntary club historian, to maintain my passion in footy. I'm equally as fanatical about cricket and hope that Australia can hang on to the Ashes this English summer. My favourite all-time players are Allan Border, Rodney Hogg and Ian Redpath.

Favourite Players

East Perth: Mal Brown, Gary Bygraves, Archie Duda; Fitzroy: Mick Conlan, Kevin Murray, Bernie Quinlan

Favourite Moment

East Perth's thrilling 1978 premiership win, by two points over Perth. The Royals had to win their last seven home-and-away games to qualify for the finals. Fitzroy's 25-goal thrashing of top-of-the-ladder North Melbourne in Round 13, 1983, and the epic one-point elimination-final victory over Essendon in 1986.
