Chris is a football historian and occasional freelance writer

Chris Egan is the WA Founder of the Australian Society for Sports History. He is currently researching the NSL era of Perth Glory. As a lifelong fan of Perth Glory and a passion for history, Chris is involved with monthly events at the game sports bar where those interested in all sports and the stories behind them are welcomed. As an historian with memories of the NSL and a passion for the purple and orange, Chris is able to contextualise the game as part of a longer legacy than the era defined as 'New' Football.
