Although we proudly celebrate our 90th year, there were a few occasions where club membership and our existence was put to the test.
1942 – Committee decides against disbanding club, after only having 8 players throughout the entire season (war duties)
1974 – Administrative disagreements caused a split in the club. A large number of men’s players left to form Sunshine Mens Hockey Club, or join new club Werribee.
1990 – Due to dwindling numbers, no women’s teams were entered for the 1990 season. A number of remaining players joined RMIT, and this remained the case until 1994, when one women’s team was entered in ML4 (equivalent of VL3).
As they say, the rest is history!
