2019, July 12, West Australian, Story and photos “Passionate Percy has Goddard firing.” and photo of Claremont ruck coach Percy Johnson and Claremont’s Jeremy Goddard. Jeremy Goddard is 21 and Percy Johnson is 86. They might be separated by 65 years but they have a genuine and deep bond and are joined by a common goal- to make the young Claremont ruckman the best he can be. Johnson was one of WA’s best ruckmen in the 50s, a craftsman who stood alongside Graham Farmer, Jack Clarke and Merv McIntosh during his 228 WAFL matches. He remains a trenchant analyst of the game and passionate mentor and teacher.
