Around The Grounds - Round 12

Friday, June 28, 2019 - 12:33 PM

This Saturday is shaping up to be a terrific game of football with the resurgent Royals taking on the finals bound Demons in what looms to be a season defining clash. The Club will also be celebrating 100 years since its first Premiership in 1919 by wearing a one-off heritage design uniform and launching a commemorative book ‘1919 The Royal Domination Begins’ during the Round 12 clash against Perth on the 29th of June.

The 1919 design features a lighter blue and a thinner black ‘V’ in place of the traditional black yoke that became a feature of our uniform in the 1950’s. As in the official 1919 photograph the players will wear white shorts and predominantly blue socks with black tops.

East Perth is also taking the opportunity to work with Beyond Blue to assist in raising awareness for mental health. The jumper features the Beyond Blue logo. The match worn jumpers will be sold after the match with proceeds being donated to Beyond Blue.
