Firstly, let me say a big Happy New Year to all involved at the Boronia Football Club. Here’s to 2017, seeing us take a step or two closer, towards our ultimate goal.
The improvements in 2016 across our three senior sides, will see us being the hunted, so we need to strive to improve ourselves further, to keep ahead of the pack and close the gap on the top four sides from 2016.
Already having a strong playing list, this will be bolstered by our recruitment over the off season, to strengthen our squad with depth, along with more quality youngsters coming through our junior ranks.
This has me emphasising how prepared we all must be, come Monday 30th of January.
Don’t start behind, as a tough pre season awaits us, which will lead into a tough footy season, with rewards to be had at seasons end, if we all continue to work hard together.
Don’t be that weak link!
The Boronia Football Club training sessions held prior to the Xmas break were extremely successful.
Senior Coach, Peter Brown, was very happy with the number of players who attended training and with the overall attitude from the boys. Pete was also very pleased with the way the new recruits settled in with their new team mates and familiarised themselves with our training methods.
Training for 2017 resumes on Monday 30 January.
The Eastern Football League today released the 2017 Senior Fixtures. You can check the fixtures for all four divisions by clicking the link below, but here for your convenience is the all important fixture for @boroniahawks.
Traditional rivalries will be resumed as we welcome East Burwood and Ferntree Gully to Division 3. A huge Anzac Sunday game is scheduled in the Battle of the Birds where we once again take on Scoresby. Two games against The Basin will be highlights and we finish off with a big Round 18 clash with Templestowe. It will be a huge season of football so be sure to follow the HAWKA in 2017.
SENIOR FIXTURE RELEASE
A great turnout on Wednesday for @boroniahawks with about 65 on the track and many supporters along to see the boys in action.
Peter Brown put them through a good solid skills session to set the standard and expectations for 2017. Four of the signed recruits were there for their first night, a couple of “possibles”, and a handful of old favourites coming back to Boronia after missing a season or two. Kate had a trainers meeting and Andrew Catley was there looking on despite reluctantly stepping down as U19’s coach due to work commitments.
Things look very good at this stage of the year.
It was a great night last night at Boronia Bowls Club for some barefoot bowls. Fantastic to see some of the new players come down to meet the boys and a huge thank you to Boronia Bowls Club for having us.
Barefoot Bowls runs every Friday night at Boronia Bowls Club. It’s fun, social and the perfect way to spend a summer’s evening after a long week. For more information contact Tony on 0425 701 330 or visit the Boronia Bowls Club website for more information.
