Our club is also one of the lowest recipients of yellow/red cards and suspensions within the Association, reinforcing our high reputation for sportsmanship.

History of our club

Peakhurst United was founded on the 29th May 1964, in the garage of Mr Ken Hough,at 20 Milford Road Peakhurst. Hoddy Bourke, Russ Edwards and Ken Hough were the founders of the club after they made a decision to break away from St George Police Boys Club.

The clubs first general meeting was attended by Bourke, Evans, Hough, Edwards, Mayoh, Mayer, McConnachie, Pike, Prestney, Seymour, Valentine and Thomas. A professional executive was formed that night, consisting of Messrs, Jock Mayer (President), Arthur Mayoh (Secretary) and Ken Hough (Treasurer).

In its first enrollment the results far exceeded expectations and six more sets of shirts had to be made and sixteen teams wore the Peakhurst colours in its first playing season in 1965.

The first Peakhurst presentation night held at Peakhurst School saw a young and nervous Johnny Warren performing the presentation.

To the pioneers of Peakhurst who named the club “United”. with the objective of forming a happy united club, one must after 50 years since inception, assure them their early aims have turned out as they would have wanted and hope that the “Peakhurst Club” built on such solid foundations, continues “United”.

How The Club Identity Was Formed

Chairman put forward in a meeting that a suitable name be chosen to be linked with Peakhurst. Mr Bob Grant thought the word “United” would be most appropriate. Mr Hough seconded

Mr Prestney suggested the name Peakhurst Forresters. This he felt appropriate our green boarded Forest Road and he suggested that our predominant colour be green. Mr R Rdwards liked the word Magpies.

Mr Grants motion was put and carried. It was then resolved that the club name was to be
“Peakhurst United Junior Soccer Club”

During the sixth meeting of the Club, Mr S Edwards tabled a design of a winged soccer ball.

During the following meeting, held on the 6th November 1964, the design was officially accepted. Here’s the relevant extraction from the minutes of that meeting.

“Two designs of pockets prepared by H Scheiss and Sons were prepared by Mr Bourke, Mr R Edwards moved that the design similar to shirt pocket be accepted. Mr D Thomas seconded- carried”
