1991 WKFA V EKFA
The WKFA for the second year won the East
meets West Football Challenge Cup. It was a tight game with some
excellent football played by both sides. EKFA did well to play
on a much bigger oval than to which they're accustomed. Certainly,
it was a much stronger team than the 1990 team.
WKFA: 13 goals 10 (88) d EKFA 8 goals 12 (60)
Best player was Darren Finlay (EKFA)
Both Football Associations should be congratulated
for organising this challenge, northern footballers have little
chance to show off their football skills: there is no doubt that
there is a huge pool of talent available. After the game, both
teams were presented with medallions, and the WKFA Captain Alan
Douglas with the Perpetual Shield and silver Challenge Champions'
Cup. Also the Combined Kimberley All Stars Representative Football
side was announced for 1992.
From the WKFA:
Timmy Carter, Robbie Banfield, Andrew Cox,
Keith Kitchener, Wayne Edgar, Justin King, Tony Hutchinson, Albert
Dann, Terry Cox, John Hutchinson, Craig Collins, Gerard Hunt,
Alan Douglas - Captain.
WKFA coach Alan Bishop hopes that in the future,
a Kimberley side be sent to the Country Championships held in
Perth or at least a Kimberley team to challenge a Pilbara team.
