A Short History Of The Hawthorn Hawks
Founded in 1902, the Hawthorn Football Club is the youngest Victorian-based team in the AFL. Nicknamed the Hawks, the brown and gold team has won 13 premierships and is the only club to have won flags in every decade since the 1960s. Hawthorn appointed John Kennedy as coach in 1960 who guided the team to their first premiership in 1961. Kennedy is honoured with a bronze statue outside of Waverley Park, the club’s training ground. The Hawks played in the Grand Final seven consecutive years in the 1980’s, winning four premierships. Their defeat of Geelong by one goal in the 1989 Grand Final is considered one of the most legendary finals matches. No other club has enjoyed such sustained dominance as the Hawks in the 1980s. Hawthorn won their most recent flag in 2015, defeating West Coast on the hottest Grand Final Day in history. It was their third premiership in a row.
