Narembeen, Western Australia
There’s not much due east of Narembeen, a wheatbelt town about 290kn east of Perth. But it does have a footy heritage few can match. For a while the town was the home of two teams Warriors and Rovers.
The most famous Narembeen youngster was four-time Sandover Medal winner Bill Walker, who played 305 games for Swan Districts but not many in his home town… word is he was too small. George (East Perth & West Perth), Richard (East Perth & North Melbourne) and Eddie (East Perth) Michalczyk were Narembeen products as was Max Bailey the popular injury prone ruckman who played 43 games for Hawthorn.
Narembeen was a foundation member of the Bruce Rock Football Association in 1926 and has been part of the Eastern Districts Football League since it started in 1960.
