Summary More renowned for its fine dairy produce and monster crayfish, King Island (situated at the western end of Bass Strait) also produces a peculiarly hardy breed of footballer. But even in its heyday the King Island Football Association only had five teams and, these days, three is all it can muster. Fishermen, farmers, cheese factory workers, meatworkers, kelpers, high school teachers and students make up the bulk of the three teams; Grassy, Currie and North. In order to keep their football competition healthy, the King Islanders have developed a fierce competition that has fuelled the island's media contingent. Geoff French has been writing about King Island football since the 1970s, Kathleen Hunter is the dynamo editor of the King Island Courier and Jan Van Ruiswyk films each match for the King Island Football Association.
