Denmark, Western Australia

The scoreboard at McLean Park in the very southern Western Australian town of Denmark told the story of a famous victory on Sunday 12 September 2010.

The Denmark-Walpole Magpies won their first premiership in 32 years when they beat Albany Royals – the Lions – by 42 points in the grand final of the Great Southern Football League. The Maggies’ playing coach was former Royal James McRae.

On the Saturday the Denmark-Walpole-Peaceful Bay Magpies won the under-15 grand final by a point. Celebrations in Peaceful Bay may have been a little raucous.
