Mallee Park Woodpeckers AFL logo
Formed in 1981, the Mallee Park Woodpeckers compete in the Port Lincoln Football League.

Mallee Park has a quite outstanding record for such a new club. The club has also proved to be an excellent nursery for AFL talent with the likes of Peter and Shaun Burgoyne and Byron Pickett playing their early football there.

Some of Mallee Park’s premierships have been won in spectacular fashion. In 1988, for instance, the Peckers trounced Tasman in the grand final by 102 points, 28.26 (194) to 13.14 (92), while two years later Marble Range was on the receiving end of a 92 point hiding. Then in 1993 Mallee Park trounced Bostons by 101 points, 28.16 (184) to 12.11 (83).

Port Lincoln is a city on the lower Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. It is situated on the shore of Boston Bay, which opens eastward into Spencer Gulf. It is the largest city in the West Coast region, and is located approximately 280 km from Adelaide. The city is reputed to have the most millionaires per capita in Australia. The town claims to be the “Seafood Capital of Australia”. British naval explorer Matthew Flinders discovered Boston Bay on in 1802. He named the body of water, Port Lincoln, in honour of his place of birth, Lincoln. As a result Port Lincoln is twinned with Lincoln in the UK.
