WAFL STAR: LEWIS BROOME

Lewis Broome Claremont - 18-year-old Lewis Broome, who hails from the Looma Eagles club in Broome in the heart of Claremont’s Kimberley zone played in the winning Colts Grand Final 2009.  He’s only tiny and could easily be mistaken for a jockey. But Lewis Broome is a wonderfully gifted footballer who is known by his teammates as Mooch. Claremont broke a run of tight contests against Peel to record a thumping 67-point win in the WAFL colts grand final at Subiaco Oval.  Claremont goals neak Lewis Broome broke the game open in the third term, snatching the lead for his side with his second goal of the game soon after half-time.  He added a third and fourth within seven minutes of the restart to put the Tigers 16 points up and it was a procession from there on.  Broome was adjudged best on ground by the judging panel, claiming the Mel Whinnen Medal for his efforts.  Lewis Broome kicked 5 goals.  (extracts from Shayne Hope article in the West Australian)
