History

Over a few beers at the Bull & Bush Hotel at Baulkham Hills the club's name and legend was born in 1963. The club's inaugural season was 1964. They commenced with an A Grade and C Grade team and trained on Yattenden Oval. They moved from Yattenden Oval to The Castle Hill Showground in about 1966. From there they moved to Jasper Road to train and play their home games. The C Grade side won the Premiership in 1965 their second year in the competition and the first Premiership for the Club. They have used Crestwood Oval, Baulkham Hills, as their home ground since it was created in the 1970s.
