Lancelin, a crayfishing town some 80 minutes north of Perth, is home to the Lancelin Ledge Point Pirates Football Club.
The team joined the Central Midlands Coastal Football League in 2009 and fields a Junior, Reserves and League team. The club actively encourages anyone interested in playing AFL to join this growing club. We place a strong emphasis on discovering and nurturing the younger players from the region, realising they will one day become our league stars.
The changing nature of country towns is evident on the footy oval. Older players are being called back for service as more young men leave town chasing a more secure future in larger towns and cities. Lancelin and Ledge Point are no stranger to this movement of people. To supplement the numbers, players from the Perth metropolitan area play alongside locals allowing the Pirates to remain competitive in this compact league.
The club is fortunate to again have the services of Kevin Bloody Wilson as club patron. Kevin is a passionate Pirates supporter, he is also behind the new club song and logo. You’ll spot him at home games when he’s not touring the world entertaining the throngs.
President Kim Scaddan, works with a devoted committee and band of supporters, to keep the canteen and bar running, wash the jumpers, volunteer on game days and transport players to and from games. Others instrumental in the club’s success are John Abbott, Michael Armitage and Elle, Gary and Vanda McDonald, Jeremy Flugge, Heather Atcheson, Ben Temby, Di Fieldhouse and Simone McLean. These people and others, ensure the club has what is required to field one netball and 3 football teams each week and a super THANK YOU to those who sponsor the team with cash and/or commercial services.
If you’re not a Pirate yet we hope to welcome you to the fold soon.
