After joining East Fremantle from Albany, Peter Stephen had a pronounced immediate impact, earning selection in Western Australia's squad for the 1969 Adelaide carnival, and capping a marvellously consistent debut season by winning the Lynn Medal as his club's fairest and best player. Solidly built, and boasting good all round skills, he played for most of his league career as a half back flanker, but could also do a highly effective job as a holding centreman. In 1972, after just 62 WANFL games, plus half a dozen for the state, in four seasons, Stephen was forced to bring his highly promising playing career to a peremptory end after being transferred to the country by his employer.
