The club was started in 2006 by Gary Clancy who was also the first Captain. The first coach was Ernie Skinner.
18-year-old Lewis Broome, who hailed from the Looma Eagles club in Broome in the heart of Claremont’s Kimberley zone played in the winning Colts Grand Final 2009. He was only tiny and could easily be mistaken for a jockey. But Lewis Broome is a wonderfully gifted footballer who is known by his teammates as Mooch. Claremont broke a run of tight contests against Peel to record a thumping 67-point win in the WAFL colts grand final at Subiaco Oval. Claremont goals neak Lewis Broome broke the game open in the third term, snatching the lead for his side with his second goal of the game soon after half-time. He added a third and fourth within seven minutes of the restart to put the Tigers 16 points up and it was a procession from there on. Broome was adjudged best on ground by the judging panel, claiming the Mel Whinnen Medal for his efforts. Lewis Broome kicked 5 goals. (extracts from Shayne Hope article in the West Australian)
Looma is an Aboriginal community in WA, located 120 km southeast of Derby. The Looma aboriginal community was originally built as accommodation for the aboriginal stockmen and their families who worked on the Camballin and Liveringa Stations during the late 1950s and 1960s. It was one of the first communities of its kind in Australia. A second community, “New Looma”, was built approximately 2 km South, after splinter groups within the community had to move due to infighting. Consequently, a new community was formed with new roads, housing and water supply installed. The old community remained as is.
