Shelley Ware: A very significant event is also happening tomorrow [Friday]. A headstone will be placed on the unmarked grave of Jimmy Melbourne at the Springvale Botanical Cemetery.
Jimmy Melbourne was the first Aboriginal footballer to play in the Western Australia State Football League back in 1900.
During the First World War, he served at Gallipoli and after the war he settled in Melbourne, where he was tragically murdered.
So well done to everyone involved in that.
Jimmy Melbourne is a significant figure in Western Australia football.
