The East Fremantle Junior Football Club Year 7 team had the privilege of playing at half time during the WAFL game, East Fremantle versus West Perth in mid-2013. The boys were able to rub shoulders with East Fremantle legends! Jack Sheedy (left) played 210 games for the club including two premierships in 1943 and 1946. On the football field he was renowned for his leadership, handball mastery and brilliant kicking. Jack was Patron of the Club from 1990 to 2005. Jack sparred with Harold Jefferys his old team mate. A fellow Hall-of-Famer, Harry was a close checking backman, strongly built and had eyes only for the ball.
