East Perth (Original)

The first team to bear the name of East Perth bore no relation to the illustrious club which has made such a significant contribution to Western Australian football since 1906. The original East Perth club's record was far from illustrious, involving a mere two season stint (1891 and 1892) as members of the Western Australian Football Association, during which they managed just 1 win and 2 draws from a total of 24 matches, for a woeful success rate of 8.3%. Needless to say, the side ended up with the wooden spoon in both years.
