Club History

The Willetton Junior Football Club  was founded in 1971,  as Willetton Sports Club (Junior Football Division).  It was felt necessary to form a new club, as boys who lived in the Willetton area were having trouble getting a game with the adjoining Riverton club due to the excess of numbers.

The  foundation committee consisted of:

Ian Adkins President
Camm Rielly Treasurer
Kevin Abbot Secretary
Dave Hackett
Ray Hagen
Bert Nye
Terry Stammers
Mr Mathews
Mr Bradley

The club initially fielded two teams in the East Fremantle jurisdiction in the 9's and 11's, coached by Ray Hagen and Dave Hackett respectively.

In 1972, the club changed its name to the Willetton Junior Football and Sports Club.  The following year, the name was changed to the Willetton Sports Club which had different divisions representing various sports.  The Football Division represented both junior and senior football.

In 1980, two football divisions were formed with the senior division joining S.S.M.N.F.L  (later to become the S.F.L) and the junior division covering the boys aged 9 to 17, playing in the East Fremantle Football Club Junior Council.

The club has been very successful, producing both WAFL and AFL players including, Shaun McManus,  Richard Hadley, Aaron Sandilands, Dominic Cassisi, Brett Peake and Brad Dodd.   The club can also lay claim to a string of premierships including the following:
