WEST PERTH FOOTBALL CLUB MEDALLISTS

Simpson and Sandover Medallists

Since 1885 when the Club first came into being, many great players have run onto the field proudly representing the Red and the Blue.

Amongst that group a number have carved their names into Western Australian football history. They were adjudged as being the 'Fairest and Best' players in the competition - their efforts recognised with the highest of awards, the Sandover Medal.

Many others wrote their names into the record books with their inspirational and team lifting performances in State Games or Grand Finals and received a Simpson Medal as their reward.
