Club History

In March 1924 a group of hockey enthusiasts joined together to form the Old Scotch Collegians Hockey Club. Officially established as Hawthorn Hockey Club in 1999.  

Our rich history is dedicated to the early members and all of their successors who have enjoyed their sport and their friendships through being a member of this Club.

JR Lugg Foundation

The JR Lugg Foundation has been set up to achieve three significant goals.The first is to perpetuate the memory of Jonathan, who was only 23 when he died. Despite his suicide, it must be said of Jonathan that he put great energy into his endeavours and with terrific people skills, he really enjoyed life enormously.
