FOOTBALL CLUB - YEARS 1880 TO NOW

The club was formed in 1880 as the direct result of a boy - Jim Steward- having his recently purchased football stolen by a rival group of lads.

From the very beginning the home of the "Hawks" has always been Canterbury Park. This ground is Still situated in exactly the same position as It was in 1880, the reserve then being formed virtually from a slum bank, the overflow of the Virginia Battery. 

In 1894 the Waterbury Watch Company offered 20 gold watches to the club kicking the most goals in 18 matches. Eaglehawk set out to win that covetted prize and comfortably won the 16 competition games. To make up the 18 matches Eaglehawk challenged the combined of Maryborough and Echuca suffice to say that this grand old club was the successful contendor with Essendon running second. Unfortunately none of the players received the gold watch as the vessel carrying the watches to Australia sank, so 40 nickel watches were presented, one for each player and his wife or ladyfriend.

With the shut down of the mines after the first World War and the moving away of residents to other employment the club suffered far greater reverses than any other club in the Bendigo Football League, but such is the spirit of loyalty back sprang a new brand of footballers and the club went on to take out the premiership in 1922 and 1924.

In the first 50 years the club had won no fewer than 16 premierships, the last 38 years have not been so prolific as we have only produced 5 Premierships sides - but we have every hope of increasing this to 6 with the winning of the 1968 flag.

Since joining in the Bendigo Football Association In 1881 the Eaglehawk Club has never once left the wing of that body - In fact it would be the only club in existence today which had an unbroken period of over 100 years with the league.
