Mounties Elite Sporting Teams
Mounties, Australia’s number one registered club, has provided 52 years of sport in the community.
Since its humble beginnings as a small sports hut, Mounties has brought together talented and committed sports players over the decades, growing to 31 sub-clubs, which includes several elite sporting teams.
An integral part of Mounties’ history and culture, sporting sub-clubs form the heart and soul of Mt Pritchard and the district Community Club. From cricket to rugby league and soccer, Mounties has been influencing the development of both sporting and social activities since the 1960s.
The first sporting clubs of the area were rugby league and cricket, both formed in 1927. Some of the most notable club cricket players were the White brothers, Mortimer (Mitta) and Joe, who became Mt Pritchard & District Community Club’s first president and inaugural committee member respectively.
Some of the many talented rugby league players who have worn the black and gold colours of Mounties have included Arthur Summons, Bob O’Reilly, Geoff Gerard, Steve Ella, Eric Gothe, Paul Taylor and in more recent times, Brad Fittler.
