Message from Craig McKenzie
 
Besides those personal achievements, without a doubt my best achievement is the number of senior players I have been fortunate enough to develop.  Watching them play each Saturday afternoon is an absolute thrill and highlight for me. I can’t wait for our new systems and innovative programs to be brought to life so even more high quality people and footballers lead this great club to the inevitable future success.

Senior Coaching Appointments

The Chairman and Board of Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club are very pleased to announce the appointment of Matthew Clark as our new Senior Coach.  
 
Matthew has been the successful senior coach of Wantirna South Football Club for seven years, taking them to the Division 3 premiership in 2014.  Prior to that, he was the Devils’ senior assistant coach for seven years.  Matthew was awarded Senior Coach of the Year for the Eastern Region in 2013, and was named Senior Coach of the EFL Team of the Year for Division 3 in 2014.  Clarky’s strong coaching philosophy, together with his commitment and experience, ensures he is well-placed to take our young group forward.
 
Assisting Matthew will be Steve Teakel, who was Matt’s Assistant Coach at Wantirna South. Steve brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with him to the Hawks and is currently AFL Victoria’s Coaching Development Manager.
 
We believe both men bring exceptional knowledge and experience to our Club and are very well equipped to continually teach and develop our young playing group.
 
Rounding out the announcement, we are delighted that Drew O’Hare will be continuing with the Club as an Assistant Coach.  Drew’s long list of achievements are well known to all of us and we are thrilled that he will be continuing on with the group in 2018.
 
We are very pleased to welcome Matt and his wife Tina, and Steve and his wife Ellen, and their families to Tormore Reserve.  We all now need to get behind Clarky, Steve and Drew and work together to make 2018 a successful year for the Club.  Go Hawkers!

Boronia Hawks win Premier Division Netball

It’s a Premiership! Our top ranked netball team, Boronia Hawks, has won the Grand Final in EFL Premier Division scoring 48 goals to Fairpark Yellow 32.  The Hawks were in great form from the outset.  They established an early lead and then stayed on top, pressuring the opposition, to record a very convincing win over last year’s premiers.

Coaching Announcement

The Boronia Football Netball Club would like to advise that after two years with the Hawks, the Club will not be renewing the contract of Senior Coach Peter Brown.

Peter’s passion, dedication and care for the young group of players has been evident to everyone, and he’s been integral to the continued development of individuals over the past two seasons.

After a succesful year in 2016 reaching the finals series, the Hawks were unable to repeat this effort in 2017, despite winning more games than the previous year.

The Club would like to thank Peter, and partner Jo, for their support over the past two seasons and we wish them all the best in the future.

Thanks Browny.

Kristan Wood

Chairman,

BORONIA FOOTBALL NETBALL CLUB
