David "Dolly" CHRISTY (Legend) Co-Founder of the Club
His great value was his ability to force his way out of a pack with the ball by sheer strength and tenacity.
'Dolly' Christy came from Ballarat and joined the Melbourne Football Club in 1890. in 1896 he came West and played for Fremantle, then Imperials the next year. When Imperials folded at the end of the 1897 season 'Dolly' and his friend Tom Wilson, with financial advice from Fremantle businessman Sam Thomson, co-founded the East Fremantle Football Club early in 1898.
He was a great player, in physique slightly below the average height but tremendously strong and it was almost impossibleto unbalance him. His great value was his ability to force his way out of a pack with the ball by sheer strength and tenacity and he was a fine snapshot at goal. He lived for football and on the field was dour and seldom spoke. Off the field was a different story. He was generous and kind hearted and had a wide group of friends from both sides of the country.
