Other Sporting Achievers

SYDNEY CLARKE (1929-30) - 'Sammy' 


In 1932 Sammy was touted as the greatest junior footballer in WA. He made his debut for Claremont-Cottesloe in 1933 – winning the Sandover Medal in that year and in 1934 making him the first ever dual Sandover medal winner. He made the State team in 1934 and captained the team in just his second game at age 20. He went on to represent the State 8 times whilst also playing 133 games for Claremont-Cottesloe. Sammy missed the 1938 premiership game whilst in the UK training to be a pilot but returned to play in the winning 1939 Grand Final.

Sadly, Sammy was killed in 1945 on his first active flying mission with the RAF.In 1932 Sammy was touted as the greatest junior footballer in WA. 


PETER EAKINS (1961-65)


Peter Eakins (1961-65) The 'Blond Bombshell' burst onto the WANFL football scene with Subiaco in 1966. In 1968 he made the state team for the first time and the following year was a joint winner of the Tassie Medal. In 1970 he relocated to Melbourne where he lined up with Collingwood where he played in a Grand Final in his first year. Unfortunately, Injuries took their toll and he returned to Subiaco after just 32 games but was ultimately was forced to retire completely at age 26.
 


 

JOHN LONGLEY (1953-63)


John is a veteran of five Australian campaigns for the America's Cup, including four straight Cup Matches, winning the Cup in 1983. He helped Skipper John Bertrand select the crew; choreograph the team’s maneuvers and served in the crew as grinder. Following the contentious 1988 Match, Longley co-authored the ‘San Diego Protocol’ which established the challengers’ rights and their method of challenging the defender in an orderly manner.

John was awarded an Order of Australia in 1984 for his service to yachting.

 


GEOFF MARSH (1971-76)


Geoff played 5 games for South Fremantle in the WAFL – before concentrating on cricket, making his WA debut in 1978/79 as a nineteen year-old. He was a solid right-hand opening batsman and on the fringe of national selection for a number of years. He finally made his debut in 1985 against India and went on to play 50 test matches and over 100 One Day Internationals. He retired from cricket in 1994 and took up coaching the following year. He went on to become a selector for the Australian Cricket Board and then to coach Zimbabwean and later Sri Lanka. He was made head coach of Pune Warriors India who made their IPL debut in 2011.



 

DEAN WILLIAMS (1966-73) 

  
Dean was born in the wrong era! Unfortunately two of the greatest squash players of all time were waiting for him - and more often than not - one of these champions stopped him in tournaments for more than a decade. He was the first WA male player to be selected in a natioanl senior team and produced 125 tournament victories, including 25 on the internaional circuit. He played in 20 consecutive Australian Open Chamionships and remains the only WA player to have won an Australian Open title.
