Browny’s still sconing them

AFTER 90 years of trading from the same spot, the iconic Culley’s Tea Rooms have now reopened two doors down the High Street mall.

And some famous remnants of South Fremantle’s 1970 premiership-winning team has moved with it. The old codgers have met at the cafe for a weekly chin-wag every Friday for years, and love the cafe’s new look.

But this week they met Monday so former team-mate Mal Brown ­— over from the east for a quick visit — could help relive all those old sporting battles.

• Mal Brown and his Bulldogs colleagues from the 60s and early 70s meet up for a cup of coffee and a chat at Culley’s.

John Gerovich, whose specky mark — the most famous ever, some say — is immortalised in a bronze statue right outside Fremantle oval’s main gate, famed jockey JJ Miller and former Culley’s boss Darrel Culley were also sipping celebratory coffees around the table.

Culley’s fourth-gen owner Michael Culley says he’s pleased with the new digs and glad to see the former footy players back for their weekly get-together.

“We’ve basically been trading out of a construction site so I’d love people to know we’re open again,” Mr Culley said.
