Summary: The Spearwood soccer team were formed after Jandakot began playing a team in March 1914. They played irregular friendly matches against other Cockburn teams as well as Fremantle teams and further afield. They never joined an official league, and when war broke out at the end of 1914 the clubs disbanded.
