Welcome (back) to my website. I hope all is going well in your world. In my privileged role as voluntary historian at the East Perth Football Club, and in collaboration with a footy mate of mine, Gary Billingham, I’ve just written The Heroes of 1972: Royals Reign Once Again, telling the story of East Perth’s drought-breaking 1972 WAFL premiership. Gary and I are pictured with 1972 premiership coach Mal Brown (centre), who is still a larger-than-life character 50 years after one of the Royals’ greatest triumphs. Copies of The Heroes of 1972: Royals Reign Once Again (116 A4 pages) are available for $45 from the The Heroes of 72 | East Perth Football Club Official Team Store (eastperthfc.com.au) online shop or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The book is the third in an as yet uncompleted series, following 1919 The Royal Domination Begins (2019) and A Right Royal Hat-Trick (2021).
Outside these three East Perth Football Club publications, I have plenty of copies of Dreamer, Drifter, Drunk (2014) and Fitzroy’s Fabulous Century: The 100 Greatest Victories 1897–1996 (2020) for sale (please see the Buy Books and Specials page). It would give me great joy to find new homes for some of these books, with box after box making my house something of an obstacle course.
