Lancelin Ledge Pirates

Lancelin Ledge Pirates AFL club

About
Lancelin Ledge Pirates AFL logoThe club joined the Central Midlands Coastal Football League in 2009 and fields a Junior, Reserves and League team. The club actively encourages anyone interested in playing football to join the this growing club. We place a strong emphasis on discovering and nurturing the younger players from the region, realising they will one day become our league starts.

The changing nature of country towns is evident on the footy oval. Older players are being called back for service as more young men leave town chasing a more secure future in larger towns and cities. Lancelin and Ledge Point are no stranger to this movement of people. To supplement the numbers, players from the Perth metropolitan area play alongside locals allowing the Pirates to remain competitive in this compact league.

The club is fortunate to have the services of Kevin Bloody Wilson as club patron. Kevin is a passionate Pirates supporter, he is also behind the new club song and logo. You’ll spot him at home games when he’s not touring the world entertaining the throngs.

Location
Lancelin is a small fishing and tourist town located 127 km north of Perth. It is within the Shire of Gingin at the end of Wanneroo Road (State Route 60), and a few kilometres from the start of the Indian Ocean Drive. Lancelin is close to the shipwreck site of the Vergulde Draeck or Gilt Dragon that was wrecked on rocks close to shore in 1656. The town’s name originates from nearby Lancelin Island which was named after P.J. Lancelin the scientific writer by Captain Nicolas Baudin in 1801 during the Frenchman’s expedition.
