Flashback: June 3, 1987

It is flashback time again and today we are going back 10 years to look at a West Coast Sentinel edition from June 3, 1987.

Who can you recognise from the West Coast Sentinel pages from 31-years-ago?

In this edition the government announced a more than $336,000 grant for a new childcare centre in Ceduna while some sought after funding to upgrade the Port of Thevenard was not successful.

In sport Far West football results saw Western United defeat Ceduna by 74 points while Thevenard scored a win against Smoky Bay by 25 points and in Streaky Bay football Rovers were 46-point winners against Streaky Bay and Wirrulla dominated Central Areas to the tune of 132 points.

In Far West netball Ceduna beat Western United by four goals while Thevenard edged out Smoky Bay by one goal and the Ceduna sailing season also came to a close.
