The 1932 WANFL season was the 48th season of the Western Australian National Football League. The premiership was won by West Perth for the first time since 1905, the Cardinals’ win ended both a run of four consecutive premierships by East Fremantle, which won its fifth of seven successive minor premierships but lost both finals it played to be eliminated in the preliminary final, and West Perth's longest premiership drought in its history. West Perth's win was highlighted by the success of champion full forward Ted Tyson, who headed the goalkicking with eighty-four goals including a record eight in the Grand Final[a]. Tyson went on to kick an unprecedented 1,203 goals during a twelve-season career with the Cardinals, but their rise from winning only six matches in 1931 was due to the development of second-year defender Max Tetley, the discovery of a third pre-war Cardinal stalwart in Norm McDiarmid,[b] brother of star ruckman Jack, plus further outstanding youngsters Jim Morgan and Bob Dalziell.[1]

It also saw a continuation of the first player drain from the WANFL to the VFL with the loss of Subiaco's Brighton Diggins and Bill Faul[2] resulting in the Lions missing the finals for the first time in nine seasons, a remarkable record for scoring accuracy by Old Easts in slippery conditions, and a longtime record total of suspensions – the last of which was for twelve weeks and ended his career – to "Nails" Western, who had been recruited by Claremont-Cottesloe from East Perth to add toughness and vigour but played little because of his reports.[3] Despite the return of Keith Hough, who set a record for the Sandover Medal with 32 votes, Claremont-Cottesloe remained on the bottom with only one extra victory.[4] Two tragic deaths occurred – Claremont's vice captain "Boy" Morris after collapsing in the street five weeks beforehand on the Saturday of Round 18,[5] and more significantly South Fremantle's Ron Doig after the first semi-final.

With nine goals, Ted Tyson moves to the head of the goalkicking despite his name having been mistaken for another player during the previous week's match (so that he was credited with one fewer goal then he kicked).[33]

Bye: Perth
  • Claremont-Cottesloe did not score its first goal against Subiaco until time-on in the third quarter. Their score was their lowest to that point in the WA(N)FL and remains their second-lowest against the Maroons,[43] as well as the longest they have ever taken to score their first goal.[c]
  • The result of that game moved Subiaco off the bottom and away from their first wooden spoon since 1916.
  • A brilliant effort by rover/forward B. Ryan on a waterlogged oval ensures a depleted East Perth team remain in second position, on a very heavy ground, he kicked three goals and was rarely beaten in general play.

Bye: East Perth
  • West Perth led all day by five goals before Subiaco came back but fell four points short of a win. West Perth's win, despite having eleven fewer scoring shots than Subiaco, remains a club record.[50]
  • A last-quarter miss by Ron Doig from in front after a brilliant clearance denies South Fremantle reward for a fine effort against the leaders.

Saturday, 20 August (2:45 pm) South Fremantle 15.24 (114) def. East Perth 5.13 (43) Fremantle Oval [65]
Bye: Perth
  • An East Perth team depleted by the loss of its entire regular half-back line is crushed by South Fremantle, effectively sealing the four as Perth require two more wins than the red and whites to take fourth place.
  • A fiery match between the western neighbours sees former East Perth star and Tiger recruit "Nails" Western suspended for six and four matches on two striking charges,[3] whilst Snashall of Subiaco receives two weeks for the same incident.[66]

West Perth's effective use of the wind allows it to run away from a vigorous East Perth outfit to win its first premiership since 1905 under ex-Fitzroy captain-coach Jack Cashman. Tyson, with his eight goals, equals Sol Lawn‘s 1929 tally of 96.[81]

Notes[edit]

a Tyson's feat was bettered by Eric Gorman in the 1963 Grand Final with nine goals.
b Along with W. Clelland between 1897 and 1905, and Mel Whinnen between 1960 and 1975, the trio hold the West Perth record for most premierships as a player, having played in 1932, 1934, 1935 and 1941.
c Claremont have never been goalless at three-quarter time; against Swan Districts in June of 1975 they also kicked their first goal in time-on of the third quarter.
