The Riverton Football Club is a sporting icon in Riverton. The club was established during the expansion of Perth through the South-east corridor. In this period, the suburban areas of Ferndale, Parkwood, Lynwood and Thornlie were developed. Many new residents were from overseas and as the population increased the demand for sporting activities for the children in the area also increased.
The club was the genesis for the establishment of other clubs in the area including Rostrata and Rossmoyne.
The club developed teams from Year 4 through to colts grades during the 1960s and 70s with significant success, becoming well known for its on-field ability and social events which were designed to engage the community and its youth.
The Club remains relevant to the community today engaging children from age 5 in the Auskick competition through to 17 year olds in Year 12.
The Club is affiliated with the East Fremantle Football District as part of the Western Australian Football Commission. The club complies with the bylaws established by the WAFC and received recognition for its compliance with these standards in 2012 when it was awarded ‘Champion Club’.
The club has had many servants who have provided guidance and executive management of the club on a volunteer basis. Many of its volunteers have been recognised as Life Members for services rendered to the club.
Players who achieved game playing milestones are also recognised by the club for their contribution to the club as Junior Life members.
In 2014 the Riverton Football Club celebrated its 50th anniversary in a gala event at the Bill Cole Centre. Past and present players and office bearers attended and three Life Memberships were awarded.
