Footy Town
Footy Town

Footy Town is a collection of football yarns from around the nation; stories which celebrate footy at its most local: from New Norfolk to the Tiwi Islands, from Rockhampton to Kalgoorlie, from Edwardstown to Fitzroy, and all the way to Mangoplah Cookardinia United.

Written with great love by players, has-beens and fans, they tell of footy clubs and the people who’ve made them, whether in the suburbs or the bush.

They paint a vivid picture of footy’s rich culture; a picture of mud and dust; of Dencorub and the clack of stops; of lumpy back pockets and racehorse half-forwards; of spiralling torps and once-upon-a-time drop kicks; of savs bubbling away forever.

This is footy; this is Australia’s Game.
