Do you remember 1994? Were you even born yet? It was the year Paul Keating was Prime Minister of Australia, Forrest Gump declared “Life was like a box of chocolates”, the West Coast Eagles won the premiership and Brucy Bulldog won the phantom race call at the EFJFC Quiz Night. Hang on, who’s Brucy Bulldog?
If you were around the East Fremantle Junior Football Club in 1994 you might know. If you weren’t, well now you can find out who Brucy Bulldog was and what else was happening at the East Fremantle Junior Football Club in 1994? Current EFJFC Committee Member Dale Jones has sourced a copy of the ’94 Yearbook. You can download this wonderful piece of EFJFC history which includes team photos, coaches reports on every player and some adverts to bring back memories.
A read through some of the coaches reports on individual players will surely provide some hilarity. For example, Damien Shanks the 13’s coach wrote the following report on Warren Quintal:
“A football maniac, and if I hear the name Modra once more I’ll scream. Wozza needs to work on his kicking and improve his training attitude. Played his best game against South Perth.” Continue reading
East Fremantle Junior Football Club Year 7s player Jack Camarda has been selected to play in the School Sport WA State Football (AFL) 12s Team.
Jack has been with the club since Auskick and has already played more than 50 games. He is extremely excited about representing himself and our club at State level and would like to thank the amazing East Fremantle Coaches & Assistant Coaches he has had over his career to date.

On Saturday 19th May, the East Fremantle Junior Football Club Year 7s team represented the Power in the Little League match played at half time of the East Fremantle v Swan Districts game. The team met at the Moss Street entrance to the ground where we were greeted by the Little League coordinator from the Sharks; he was fantastic and had the full attention of our group from the moment we arrived. First-up, a Captain and Vice Captain were selected to lead our team. Captain on the day was Emily Murphy. Vice Captain was Bailey Burns. After watching the 1st quarter of the league game, we spent the 2nd quarter in the change rooms getting ready for the big match.
As we wear East Fremantle (Power) jumpers each week, it was agreed we’d wear Swan District jumpers. The vertical stripes made everyone look 6 inches taller. As far as the game went, the boys acquitted themselves well. The boys performed well and behaved exceptionally, representing the club with pride. To cap off what was a great day of footy (we had already played our regular fixture in the morning), Daniel Richards (the Club’s Coaching Coordinator) produced a DVD of the game. The DVD is sensational and I thank Daniel very much for doing this. Daniel was present watching Isaac his son (who kindly played with our Team). A copy of the DVD is being provided to each member of the team. Continue reading
