The most successful period for the Cats was the early 1950's when they won two premierships and were beaten in another Grand Final. They were the days when the Wily Reg Hickey coached big names such as Bernie Smith, Fred Flanigan, Bob Davis, Peter Pianto and Bruce Morrison.

Then came the club's last premiership was in 1963 when Bob Davis was in charge of stars who included Fred Wooler, Polly Farmer, Bill Goggin and John Sharrock.
