On those cold wintry nights the committee meetings were held in the kiosk at Hurstville Oval. In the formation year, the club entered two teams in the junior competition, which attracted teams from as widespread an area as Homebush and East Hills. The two teams were 12 & 14’s, coached by Reg Richards, ‘Poss’ Davis and Bill Cerrutti. It was to the credit of these men, the players and the club as a whole that the Under 12’s took the premiership and the Under 14’s shared a Joint Premiership with South Hurstville.

Premiership wins in those early days of the club had less material rewards attached to them than today. The first presentation night was held in the Boomerang Hall, at Sylvania and each boy received a club pennant.

The Annual General Meeting of the club in 1959 resulted in both the Committee and Ladies Auxiliary being re-elected unaltered.

The club fielded three teams in this years competition, Under 12, 14 & 16’s. In the absence of any contrary information it must be assumed that none of these teams qualified for the end of season play-offs.

In these early years the Ladies Auxiliary was very active with house parties and raffles and were the mainstay in providing the club finances. This year the meetings were not only being held at Hurstville Oval, but also Carss Park Life Saving Club hall and private homes.
