About
Formed in 1949, Towns have been a powerhouse in Broome football. Towns went through the season of 1953 undefeated and their full forward, Bob Stephens, kicked 14 goals in the Grand Final. Throughout the 1950s Towns played in white singlets and shorts.

Father McMahon coached the side in 1974 which began a run of 5 flags in a row. When going for their 5th flag in a row their incentive was the five letters that make up TOWNS.

Location
Broome is a coastal, pearling and tourist town in the Kimberley region of WA, located 2,240 km north of Perth. It is often mistakenly thought that the first European to visit Broome was William Dampier in 1688, but he only visited the north of what was later named the Dampier Peninsula. In 1699 he explored the coast from Shark Bay to La Grange Bay, from where he headed north leaving the Australian coast. Many of the coastal features of the area were later named for him. In 1879 Charles Harper suggested that the pearling industry could be served by a port closer to the pearling grounds and that Roebuck Bay would be suitable. In 1883 John Forrest chose the site for the town, and it was named after Sir Frederick Broome, the Governor of WA from 1883 to 1889.
