  7. I have a 14 year old son who is obsesed with football, he is in my opinion a great player he plays for his club in the UK and they are top of the prem (so far) We are looking to move to Perth in July, what opertunities are there in Perth for my son to continue to play the sport he loves. If he got into a good club I think this would make his move much easier. Area we are thinking of is Rossmayne good area for football or not?

    Thank you


    There are many clubs that offer pretty decent pathways for good players, most of them are State league premier clubs. Some that have the best youth programs are Stirling Lions, Balcatta SC, Perth SC and Floreat Athena. Easy enough to travel from Rossmoyne but they are north of the river clubs, there are other clubs closer though. Football West also run state teams and development programs. Some local high schools also run football programs, Lynwood SHS and John Curtin College are the two closest to you.


    Home - Football West - The peak body for football (soccer) in Western Australia has plenty of info


    Hope that helps

  10. Hi thanks Joe... we just signed our son up to one of the junior teams and he is happy to be back playing football after finishing up with his uk team in Jan and emigrating here shortly after. Nice club, great coach, well organised ... couldnt be happier.... although the 9am k.o on mothers day tomorrow.... not sure i'm happy about that! ha! .... actually it will be a great start to the day, it's wonderful to see a happy son doing what he loves best.


    Great to hear, although the junior club and senior club are separate we are still affiliated and share a common history so I'm pleased your lad is enjoying it as so many other juniors do. The ethos there is very different to some other clubs with fun and participation (and low fees!) all important. We've had a good influx of juniors into the senior ranks this year, long may that continue.

  11. I've posted here before but thought I'd extend the welcome for people new to Perth looking to play "the beautiful game" especially since its world cup year and people might feel like dusting off the boots!!

We have 9 teams: A good standard Amateur team looking for high level players, an amateur development team for 18-24 year olds. 3 social teams (Sunday league level back home), a ladies and masters (35+). We also have an affiliated Junior Club for the youngsters.

  14. Hi, will probably be out there end of Jan, have you a place for a fit 42 year old striker.

    When does the season start and end over there.

    Do the pitches get rock hard? is it moulded studs

  16. Hi Joe,

    we are coming to Perth next year, 17 year old son will be gagging to play, although worried about the heat, hes used to playing against the easterly winds of Lowestoft so will be a challenge,we are moving to the Norhtern suburbs just not sure where yet!

    How does Perth compare to Norwich?



    I'm actually from Somerleyton (small world huh). Love Perth but love going home too (still call it home after all these years!). We have a youth development amateur team for 18-24 year olds (17's ok though), an amateur first team which is about Anglian Comb standard and our affliated Junior Club has an U18's. So plenty of choices for the lad. We're smack bang in the middle of the Northern Suburbs and only 5 mins from Warwick train station.


    Heats only a problem early in the season, winter its not too bad. What level/club does your son play.

  17. Just wanted to extend a welcome to people just arrived or soon to be arriving.


    Been here 9 years from Norfolk and loving it. I found joining the local football team the best way to meet people and fit in.


    Hamersley Rovers are currently looking for new players. Very good players very welcome in our First team but we cater for all levels (and genders!) with amateurs, socials, masters (35+) and ladies. We also have an affiliated junior club.


    We are based in Carine Open Space, Perth northern suburbs, 5 min walk from Warwick train station. Come and meet a lot of ex pats, aussies and people from all over the world at our club and feel at home.
