Walter Lew Fatt

The great Walter Lew Fatt spent his entire footballing career with his beloved Darwin Buffaloes and is considered one of the Buffs greatest ever midfielders.

His name is also spoken about in NT footballing folklore as one of the greatest ever players.

He played in ten grand finals from 1930 through to 1947 winning Premierships in 1931/32, 1933/34, 1934/35 and 1935/36.

After being runner-up in the NTFL League Best and Fairest in 1931/32, Walter Lew Fatt took out the top medal in 1932/33 and again in 1933/34 taking out Buff’s Best and Fairest in the same years.

Acknowledged as a Life Member of the NTFL for Services to Football and also a Life Member of Darwin Buffaloes, Walter Lew Fatt was the Patriarch of the extended Lew Fatt family and his footballing legacy lived on with his sons inheriting their father’s footballing prowess. It is an honour to name one of Territory football's most famous sons, the iconic Walter Lew Fatt, in the AFLNT Team of the Century.
