The Mt Hawthorn Cardinals started at Menzies in 1959, making 2019 the 60th Anniversary year. (See below for details of our celebration in the first week of August.)

In 2019 we have also hit an all time high for player registrations in the juniors and this includes fielding a team in the year 11/12 competition and for the first time an all girls team in the girls year 7/8 competition. 

This amazing effort is driven by our army of volunteers, the great support we get from City of Vincent, the generosity of our sponsors and the co-operation of all our parents and friends. As always the kids love to see who is going to get the Sweetlips voucher each week and recently you have probably seen the Pinchos vouchers around as a reward for our parent helpers too.

Here is a message from the Pinchos Team

Hey guys,
Pinchos Bar de Tapas is again super proud to be a sponsor of the Cardinals for the 2019 season! As Mount Hawthorn residents, we love getting behind our local community; there’s nothing better than seeing kids play sport. New drink (alcoholic of course) vouchers for the season will be handed to the coaches and managers for them to distribute. We look forward to having you visit our little Spanish corner in Leedy sometime soon! Go the Cardies!
See you soon,
Cheers Justin, Donna & the team

With our numbers, our sponsorship and our parent and volunteer involvement at all time highs our diamond anniversary is really something to celebrate. This year we have received extra support to help subsidise our social night and it too will be bigger than ever at an affordable price. 

Please remember that last year our social night sold out … so grab your tickets now if you want to come along. Click the image above or follow this link to get tickets

If you would like to do even more for your hard working volunteers you may even like to nominate them for an award. The volunteer of the year awards are now open. Managers and committee can be nominated in volunteer of the year and there are extra categories for Auskick, junior coaches and youth coaches.
