East Fremantle's Len Anderson was an accomplished full forward whose wobbly punt kicks for goal were paradoxically almost unfailingly accurate. Over the course of his 108 WANFL games between 1956 and 1963 he kicked 353 goals at an average of 3.27 per game. He was Old Easts' top goal kicker in 1957 with 77 goals, 1958 with 89, 1959 with 91 and 1960 with 79. He represented a West Australian number two side which twice defeated visiting VFL club Hawthorn. After his retirement as a player he continued to serve East Fremantle in an administrative capacity.
