Goldsworthy Tigers were formed by Angus (Gus) Matheson. He was their first coach.
The town of Goldsworthy had the first grassed footy oval in the Pilbara.
The photo below was taken at the Port Hedland race track. Note the oval was not grassed back then until the 1970s when Colin Matheson was elected to the Port Hedland Shire Council. Port Hedland finally got a grassed oval in the middle of the race track.
