Brief history

The Whyalla Football Association was formed in 1939 with founding clubs including Central Whyalla, North Whyalla and South Whyalla, although competition has been noted to have occurred prior to this.[2] In 1961 the Whyalla Football League (together with the Great Northern Football Association and the Port Pirie Football Association) formed the Spencer Gulf Football League. In 1967 the Whyalla-based clubs left the Spencer Gulf Football League and reformed the Whyalla Football League.

Champion past SANFL players from Whyalla include triple Magarey Medallist Barrie Robran and inaugural Adelaide Crows coach Graham Cornes while 4 time SANFL Premiership coach Neil Kerley spent two seasons as Captain-Coach of the North Whyalla Magpies, leading them to the premiership in both seasons (1954 and 1955).

Former Whyalla footballers who have reached the AFL include Robert Shirley, Brett Burton Isaac Weetra and Levi Greenwood.
