Title: Scoreboard Merredin
Home of the Demons.... from Nukarni...
THIS is an ingenious scoreboard with the capacity to be linked up to a ute and taken from ground to ground the WA Wheatbelt... no, wait a minute, that would the be the beginning of the end of our scoreboard project.
The teams on the board in this photo, taken just before Christmas, are Burracoppin and Nukarni.
Strangely Merredin oval has been the home ground of Nukarni since 2008 and Merredin no longer has a team in the Eastern Districts Football League.
Probably Merredin’s finest footy product was East Perth’s Ken McAullay who won two Simpson medals and the Tassie medal in 1972 as well as playing in the drought-breaking premiership team for the Royals.
