The Lynwood Ferndale Football Club is celebrating 50 years of footy this month.
The club will be officially celebrating their 50th year anniversary on August 17 at the Ferndale Park.

Lynwood Ferndale Junior Football Club was established in 1970 with its home ground being Woodford Park in Lynwood.

The club moved to Ferndale Park in 1978 and amalgamated with the Lynwood Ferndale Amateur Foot- ball Club in 1990.

The club has produced many AFL and WAFL players including 2000 Brownlow Medalist Shane Woewodin.

Both the reserves and league sides will be wearing special commemorative jumpers this weekend that replicate the first jumpers worn by the club.

Lynwood Ferndale player Trent Verchell said it was a privilege to wear the jumper as it represents 50 years of proud history.

“To get to play for a club with such a proud and strong history is an absolute honour,” he said.

The club welcomes all past and present players, coaches, officials and supporters down to Ferndale Park to celebrate with the reserves game kicking off at 12:30pm against Ellenbrook.

The club has many activities planned throughout the day followed by live entertainment from 7pm so come down and support the club on their big day.
