Father McMahon was the first Life Member of the Football Association in 1980. He first arrived in Broome in 1967 and during that time fulfilled the role of Parish Priest of Broome. Father McMahon was an outstanding member of the local community and his involvement in the Broome football world was second to none at both club and association level.
Kevin Bullen - Phillip Matsumoto
26 April 1992 saw two well known local identities presented with Life Membership to the West Kimberley Football Association.
Kevin Bullen and Phillip Matsumoto have both had illustrious careers in the Broome Football world both with their own clubs and the association, both off and on the ground.
As well as having outstanding playing history both Kevin and Phil held executive positions at both club and association levels.
Their involvement at both community and sporting level stretched well past football circles alone and many other organisations would not be where they are now without their involvement.
Football may never had survived without them and the Association had much pleasure in presenting them both with their Life Memberships.
In 1993, Brian Kane was presented his life membership to the association by Dr Peter Tannock, Chairman of the WA Football Commission.
In 1999, Alan Bishop was awarded a life membership of the Association
2002, Gary 'Butch' Chesson was awarded a life membership of the Association.
