The East Perth Football Club is an Australian rules football club that is a member of the West Australian Football League.

The club is based at Medibank Private Stadium, Leederville (Formerly Leederville Oval) in Perth, Western Australia.

Contents

History

The club was actually founded in 1902 as Union Football Club (not to be confused with the defunct Unions club from Fremantle) and competed in the Perth 3rd Rate Association Competition (however an earlier 'East Perth' had formed in 1891). The club was successful and was promoted to the 1st Rate Association. After continuing to succeed at this level they applied to join the WAFL and hence became a member in April 1906. The club became known as East Perth in accordance with the WAFL's policy of having each club represent a district in Perth.

It went on to become one of the most powerful clubs in the West Australian league.

By 1980, the club had made a submission to enter the VFL/AFL, however this was withdrawn.

East Perth later acted as the host club for West Coast Eagles players recruited from interstate from 2000-2001 until the host club arrangement was abolished.

Its first home ground was Wellington Square. It then moved to Perth Oval between 1910 and 2002, although it played games at the WACA from 1988-89.

The club began playing its games at Medibank Private Stadium from 2000 (better known in Perth as Leederville Oval, formerly the home of bitter rivals West Perth), but the club only officially moved there in 2003. They have since been joined at the ground by the Subiaco Football Club.

Premierships

WAFL Premierships: 1919-20-21-22-23, 1926-27, 1936, 1944, 1956, 1958-59, 1972, 1978, 2000-01-02

2008 Season

The 2008 season was a disappointing one for the Royals. Managing to win only 6 games all season, the league team sat in eighth place for the majority of the year. A loss to Perth in the final home and away round, coupled with a Claremont upset win over top four side South Fremantle consigned East Perth to 9th place, their first wooden spoon since 1989.

Rivalries

East Perth's traditional rivals are West Perth Football Club (Previously known as the Cardinals). They have competed in many historic matches (Perth Derbies) including grand finals, such as in 2002 when East Perth defeated the Falcons by 60 points to complete a hat-trick of premierships. Ryan Turnbull won the Simpson Medal that day.

The East Perth vs Perth clash has also been referred to as the Perth Derby, made famous due to the famous clashes in the 1960s and 70s, including the famous 1978 grand final. However its significance is somewhat muted compared to the former mentioned fixture. This could be due to Perth's lacklustre performance since the late 70's.

Another newer rivalry is that with co-tenants Subiaco Football Club. Historically, East Perth has never beaten Subiaco since they began sharing the ground in 2004. This was broken in the 2007 season when East Perth came from over forty points behind at half time to win the game by three points. Recent games have become even more bitter with the transfer of players Travis Knights, Caine Hayes and Paul Ridley to Subiaco under controversial circumstances. It should be noted though that off the field the two clubs do have a good working relationship in regards to their ground sharing situation.

Records

Highest Score: 32.19 (211) vs. Claremont in 1958

Most Games: 269 by Derek Chadwick from 1959 to 1972

Record Home Attendance: 26,760, 31 May 1969 v. West Perth at Perth Oval.

Record Finals Attendance: 51,385, 1969 grand final v. West Perth at Subiaco Oval.

Teams of the Century

With the launch of the East Perth history book in mid-2006, an expert panel from the club came up with two "teams of the Century". One pre-war team from 1906-1944, and the other from 1945-2005
