These photos are from the epic commissioned journey taken by photographer Michael Wearne on the orders of scoreboardpressure.com in 2012. Occasionally he emerges from his darkroom strides into the editorial suite and says: “Here’s some more of that scoreboard crap.”

Crathern Park is the home ground of the Centrals Trinity Beach Bulldogs who play in the AFL Cairns competition. The Bulldogs came about after Aloomba and Centrals merged in 1962. They’ve had a reasonably successful time of it though their last premiership was in 1997.
