William Roe (Snr.) BEM

 

Bill Roe BEM was born William Ernest Roe in Broome (WA) in 1934 the eldest child of William and Mary Roe.

 

Bill Roe excelled in Australian Rules football and Basketball; he began his long football career from 1954 to 1967 with St. Marys Football club in Darwin.

 

Bill was one of the first players to play with St Marys in their first season in the NTFL. He missed the first couple of games because he was waiting for a clearance from the Wanderers Football Club.

 

In the 1954/55 season Bill won the prestigious NTFL Nichols Medal, he was the first St Marys player to win this award.

 

Bill played in seven winning Grand Finals with St Mary’s Club they were in 1954/55, 1955/56, 1958/59, 1959/60, 1961/62, 1965/66 and 1966/67.

 

Bill also played in the Grand Finals of 1960/61, 1967/68, 1968/69, 1969/70 and 1970/71

 

He won the Clubs Best and Fairest in 1954/55.

 

Bill was made a Life Member of the St Marys Football Club in 1959 and Life Member of the NTFL in 1973.

 

It is estimated that Bill played about 190 games, but unfortunately records were lost during Cyclone Tracy, so there are no correct figures.

 

Bill moved to Western Australia and played football for East Perth, where he played thirteen games, he played in their premiership side in 1956 and was voted best player on the ground.

 

Unfortunately a car accident cut short his career in the Western Australia Football League, and he moved back to Darwin and continued to play for St Marys Football Club.

 

In 1972 Bill coached the first Aboriginal Australian Rules Football team to play in Papua New Guinea.

 

Bill represented the Northern Territory in Basketball many times and played professional Basketball in Perth WA.

 

In 1978 Bill was awarded the BEM (British Empire Medal) in the Queens Birthday Honour list for his contribution to sports in Darwin and particularly in Aussie Rules.

 

Season 2001/02 has been very special to Bill as the club (St Marys Football Club) he loved and played for celebrated fifty years in the NTFL.

 

Bill was elevated by NAIDOC to legend status on the 12th July 2002.

 

Bill was inducted into NT Hall of Fame 10/11/2012

 

Sadly Bill passed away on the 3/04/2015
