Welcome to the

CFC History Project

The Claremont Football Club was initially formed as the amateur Cottesloe Beach Football Club in 1906, and joined the peak amateur competition, the Western Australian Football Association the following year. The club dominated the WAFA from the outset, winning premierships from 1907–1910, and in 1908 it beat WAFL club Subiaco in a challenge match.

Our History

Since 1926 the Claremont Football Club has developed a proud tradition in the W.A.F.L. competition.  From its humble origins, as the Claremont/Cottesloe Football Club, it has experienced moments of great glory and extended periods of frustration and disappointment.  Its contribution to football in Western Australia has been significant.

Indigenous Heritage

When Maley Hayward came up from Tambellup in 1928 to play a season with Claremont, he little knew that he was to be the forerunner of a great contingent of Aboriginal players who were to entertain the Tigers’ supporters with magnificent displays of football skills.
