Nyul Nyul filled the gap left with the demise of Roos in 1988. It was established with the same idea of providing opportunities for those unable to get a regular game with the existing clubs. Nyul Nyul was renamed Cable Beach Football Club to make it more inclusive to the wider community of Broome.  Cable Beach Football Club has been superbly run and the results speak for themselves.

'CBFC History'

The Cable Beach football club was formed in 1991 and was first known as the Nyul Nyul Football Club.

The club was put together by the Corpus and Dann families who were concerned some of the local

boys couldn’t get into a football side.

The two families then got together and formed the club. Their aim was to get the boys off the street

and give the boys something to look forward to on the weekend.

It had a horrid first few years in the West Kimberley Football Association as the club got use to being

the new team in the competition especially against other strong local stalwarts Towns, Meat works

and Saints. The club struggled with financial difficulties and also having enough numbers to make up

a side for the games.

But with the determination and sacrifices made by these families and in particular, Josie, Henry &

Roslyn’s family, and the support of the loyal supporters and players who stuck by the club, it was

able to continue. In 1993 the club changed names & become known as Cable Beach Football Club.

By 1996 the atmosphere amongst the team and the club was exciting. Players & supporters were

working hard to keep the club going and by now the team had become accustomed to the

competition. They were a very strong outfit & proved this to take out the 1996 West Kimberley

Football Association premiership defeating Peninsular Bombers in the grand final.

Since then the club changed dramatically & the development of the club both on & off the track

improved to a very professional standard. These improvements in hand with the hard work & dedication

of the club founders were pivotal in making the Cable Beach football Club successful & also a

serious threat in the competition consistently playing finals football year after year up until 2003

During 2003 - 2006 the retirements of premiership players & a number of senior experienced players

seen the club just miss out on the finals series. The club chose to go with the development of

younger players from the club & local area as well as welcome in a variety of new members & players

who enjoyed sharing the virtues, friendships & culture of the Cable Beach Footy Club.

This saw the Beach’s young brigade, whom a large majority represented the Kimberley at higher level

football, stick together and form experience playing as a team. In turn the development of the team

jumped forward in leaps & bounds. With a few years experience under the young club’s belt they

were ready to reinstate themselves as a serious threat in the West Kimberley Football Association.

This was a proven strategy with CBFC taking out the ‘07 premiership against Towns in record

breaking fashion. Cable Beach becoming the only team in the History of the WKFL to go through the

whole season & finals undefeated & win the flag.

It looked similar in 2008 with the Club going through the whole season only losing games to the

eventual grand finalists. Back to Back looked promising until a nail biting loss in the final seconds of

the Qualifying final sent the Beach to a sudden death preliminary final in an injury ridden & depleted

state. This saw the Beach exit out & miss the 2008 Grand Final after being so close.

The Beach bounced back in 2009 having a stellar season. At first, parts of the year were up and down.

The club finished 2nd on the ladder & stormed into the finals on a high, defeating the ladder leading

Bombers in their last 3 games of the season to take out the 2009 premiership in convincing fashion.

In 2010 it looked to be back to back with the Beach finishing the season on top of the ladder with only

one loss but a host of draws…The team just not playing consistently enough fell in the first final to

Saints and then lost the preliminary final the following week to a rampaging Bombers.

An extremely hungrier Beach came out in force in 2011 and dominated the majority of the season again

finishing atop the ladder. The only stumbling block being the Peninsular Bombers who were the highly

fancied premiership favourites. Bombers defeated Beach in the qualifying final to head straight into

the grand final while Beach eventually set up a grand final rematch by defeating Towns in the

preliminary final. Through sheer guts and determination Beach handed the Bombers their 3rd

successive grand final loss leading the game from start to finish & were crowned the 2011 Champions.

The Beach were desperate to create club history and win back to back titles in 2012 & signs again

looked good with the reigning premiers winning the pre-season premiership & again finishing the

season on top of the ladder. The Beach made easy work of Looma & advanced straight in to the 2012

Grand final. They then had the week off to watch Derby Tigers win through to their first grand final.

Come Grand final day the pressure was truly on the Beach as the town of Broome was transformed

into a sea of Black and yellow with some 90% of the game day crowd wanting to see the Mighty Beach

knocked off their perch! Beach’s old faithful supporters stood tall & cheered hard to fire the boys on.

In an extremely low scoring, tough game they were behind all day and it was looking like it wasn't

going to be the Beach’s year. With only minutes remaining in the game the Beach clawed their noses in

front and won a truly epic grand Final stealing it from right under the Tigers noses to become back to

back premiers. This feat achieved for the first time in the clubs short history, making the Beach the

most successful team in the WKFL since their inception into the league.

Cable Beach Football Club is made up mostly of members from local families around Broome. The club

has an open door policy in which any person from any where is welcome to become a member & get

involved with the club.

The club prides itself on being very family orientated with great socialism off the field and great

professionalism on the field. The club is also huge on the development of younger players in order to

improve their football, work and lifestyles.

The club also has a representative team in each of the West Kimberley Junior Football Council’s U/10s,

U/12s, U/15s & Colts competitions. The club also has an affiliate Touch Rugby Team in the A Grade for

the Broome Touch Football Association. The club also has an affiliate women’s Netball Team in the

A-Grade competition for the Broome Netball Association and an affiliate mixed Netball Team in the

A-Grade competition for the Broome Netball Association .

    FAREWELL - LLOYD REIDY (JULY 2012)

    Cable Beach Football Club 2 time Premiership player, Premiership Vice Captain and 2010 Best and Fairest Winner Lloyd Reidy

    played his final game for the Beach last Saturday vs Broome Bulls.

    Reidy arrived on the scene in 2009 and had an immediate impact in the team and the WKFL as a hard, gut running, rebounding

    defender. His great voice, agility and durability also allowed him to see plenty of game time in the star studded CBFC midfield.

    Lloyd's class as a senior player played a major hand in guiding the Beach to its 2009 & 2011 premierships. He has figured in the

    top of the B&F votes every year whilst at CBFC and took out the Best & Fairest in 2010. In 2011 his leadership credentials saw

    him elevated to Vice captain of CBFC.

    Lloyd has been heavily involved with the WKFL as a senior umpire this season and

    will continue to help out with this but will remain at CBFC as the head runner until He

    and Wife Jess embark on some overseas R&R. Lloyd and Jess have been a great

    assett to CBFC and we wish them all the best in their future and thank them for their

    efforts at the club. Its been great having two such great people involved at the club.

    Lloyd capped off a remarkable career with the Beach by again featuring in the best

    players against the Bulls. He also saved one more magic trick for his final game

    kicking one of the best goals ever witnessed in the WKFL’s history.

    Deep in the back pocket Lloyd ran it out of defense, continued to run having about 6

    bounces down the wing, Not known as a goal kicker Lloyd reached the half forward flank where by all were waiting for him to

    pass it off and hit one of the forwards lace out on the chest to set up a goal.

    However, Reidy continued to run, side stepped a few Bulls players and launched a staggering shot at goal from 45m out on his

    non preferred foot. Just as all the Beach faithful thought “What was he thinking he cant kick goals” the ball sailed through the big

    sticks to slot a memorable goal. Celebrations were

    immediate as players ran from all ends of the ground

    to gather around Reidy and acknowledge him for a

    such a remarkable act! What a way to finish

    Reidy was carried off the ground after the game and

    was right in the centre of the circle to proudly and

    loudly sing the winners song.

    Well Done Lloyd Reidy on a great career with CBFC.
