Within the first minute of the game Powerhouse got off to the ideal start netting a goal shocking the Panthers. Without Captain James Knee who missed the game through injury the older brigade in Corey Joseph and Tim Wischusen stepped up and provided much needed leadership to refocus the Panthers.
The Senior Registration information released on the website in February there included a Social Membership option. For non-playing family, friends, spectators, Club Administrators or other supporters of Waverley the social membership is a great way to support the Club. Read More
It is with sadness that we acknowledge the passing of Grahame Green. Grahame has been a long-time supporter of hockey in general being a player and committee member at Hawthorn Hockey Club in his younger days. After having a family, many of the Green’s played at Waverley and Grahame, along with his wife Josi, was a regular feature over many, many years supporting his kids and all other Waverley players. This included the 2015 season where Grahame was able to enjoy Waverley’s success as his son, Ant, lead Waverley’s Premier League Reserves team to a premiership and then backed it up against Grahame’s old team Hawthorn in the Over 35 team on a cold Monday night.
We pass on our deepest sympathy to Josi, Ant, Michael, Anna and Andrew and the wider Green family.
