Jul 13, 2009

Western Suburbs Magpies, one of only six surviving Foundation Clubs in rugby league, will hold a gala event at Wests Ashfield Leagues Club on Thursday, September 24.

The event will feature the club’s second induction ceremony of former greats into the Western Suburbs Hall of Fame.
A special presentation of commemorative medallions will also be made to all former first grade players (or their next of kin) who played with the club since its foundation in 1909 until 1999 when it joined the Balmain Tigers to form the Wests Tigers joint venture.

A total of 1063 players played first grade for the Magpies from 1908-1999\. The club wishes to honour and acknowledge those players who have contributed so much to the proud history and tradition of one of the code’s greatest ever clubs.

The club wishes to hear from former players or their families with contact details as soon as possible. All interested former players or their families should register their contact details without delay by mail to
Centenary Medals, Wests Ashfield Leagues Club, PO Box 877, Ashfield, NSW, 1800.
