HAWTHORN Football Club will host its affiliated Indigenous under-21s team, Eastern Eaglehawks, at the Ricoh Centre today.

The Eaglehawks will take on Haileybury College in a match at Waverley Park.

This club encompasses more than just football, it gives young men the tools they need through various development opportunities and training to become future leaders in their respective communities.

Hawthorn’s Indigenous players are actively involved with the Eaglehawks providing guidance and valuable insights into their AFL pathway.

The Eaglehawks formed in early 2014, and played a match against Ballarat's St Patrick College at the Hawks' home base in 2015.
