Club History

The Casey Cannons Hockey Club, formerly known as the Berwick Hockey Club was established in 1989.

Originally based at Sydney Pargeter Reserve, Endeavour Hills, the club began with two senior Women’s teams, at ML3 and MD5 standard and three Junior teams at U/11, U/13 and U/15 age groups.

Success was achieved in the clubs first year, when the Women’s seconds, the MD5 team, captained by Kerry Hicks won the clubs first flag.

Berwick Hockey Club started to play more regularly at Mills Reserve, Dandenong, a brand new synthetic ground that opened in 1993.

A proud moment for the club was in 1995, when our U/17’s, coached by Max Pascoe became the first Junior team to earn a Grand Final berth since the beginning of the club. The U/17’s tried valiantly but lost 1/0 to Moorabin at Reservoir. 

In 1998, the club changed its name to the Casey Hockey Club and Brian Andrews replaced Margaret Randall in the president’s chair.

The best news for the development of the club arrived in 2001 with the announcement that the Casey Council had given the all clear for a new all weather synthetic turf to be constructed in the City of Casey. After many years’ hard toil and speculation, the Casey Hockey Club would finally have its own home ground. Its new base would be at Berwick Secondary College and the new synthetic turf would be ready in time for the commencement of the 2002 season. 

The foundations of any club sit with the ability to attract, develop and keep its juniors. With the Casey Hockey club now wedged on the border of the sprawling South-Eastern Corridor and the gateway to Gippsland, and with its home ground at Manuka Road, the club now finds itself in a very strong position to become a powerful club across all Victorian Hockey Associations. The Casey Hockey Club is proud of its short history and grateful for those responsible for shaping and making the club what it is today. The club hopes to build upon the solid progress it has made and to offer the Casey community a well respected, family orientated club with which both young and old can develop, enjoy hockey and socialise for many years to come.

Lets all stick together and make a contribution towards our clubs future history!
