More > “traditional”, “hot” support for West Perth Football Club among teenaged supporters from middle-class and working-class backgrounds.

This book is the memoir of Kieran James, and details his experiences as co-founder of West Perth Football Club’s unofficial cheer squad (hardcore support) from 1984 to 1986 (Western Australian... More > Football League / WAFL). Using Marsh’s theory of the “illusion of violence”, the author links the cheer squad to the academic literature on British soccer hooligans, Italian ultras, and other soccer supporter groups from around the world.

The book also allows the reader to relive great WAFL matches and meet again key players from the era.< Less
