Curtin University Wesley
Since commencing in 1990 Curtin University Wesley (known as Wesley Curtin until 2016) have alternated between the Western Australian Amateur Football League’s A and B grade competitions. In recent years they have been a frontrunner in the competition and claimed back to back flags in 2012 in B Grade and 2013 in A Grade. The B Grade premiership came via a hard fought 9 point grand final defeat of Fremantle CBC, with scores of 10.8 (68) to 8.11 (59). A year later the Tigers accounted for University on grand final day by a margin of 32 points, 9.11 (65) to 4.9 (33). In 2014 the Tigers qualified for the finals in second position and went on to reach the grand final, with University again providing the opposition. This time, however, the result was not what Wesley Curtin wanted, University triumphing by 25 points, 10.13 (73) to 7.6 (48). The 2015 season brought a third successive A Grade grand final appearance but just as in 2014 it proved unsuccessful with University edging home by 11 points.
The club's first season as Curtin University Wesley in 2016 was something of a let-down as the Tigers managed just seven wins from 18 matches to finish in seventh place on the 10 team premiership ladder. A year later there was modest improvement as a tally of eight wins brought a sixth place finish but the 2018 season proved to be disastrous as the side slumped to second from last after winning just four matches. Relegated to B Grade as a consequence the Tigers bounced back in fine style in 2019, winning all 20 matches contested to earn the title 'champions'. A year later they topped the A Grade premiership ladder ahead of the finals only to suffer the nguish of a "straight sets`' exit at nthe hands of North Beach (by a bare point) and Scarborough.
