2017 Senior Fixture

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.



U19’s Coaching Appointment

Boronia Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew Wright as the 2017 under 19s coach.
Andrew has played over 200 games of senior football at both FTG and Forest Hill and coached at Junior level for 7 years. He has intimate knowledge of the overall football program, strong communication skills and undoubted enthusiasm for developing young men. All this makes him the ideal candidate for this role.  Andrew will commence contacting the 19s playing list in the immediate future.

2017 Preseason is off and running!

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.


Barefoot Bowls

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.

New Direction 2017: Announcement of Boronia Football Club Board


As a result of Identifying the need to prevent overworked and burnt-out committee members and volunteers, the Boronia Football Club would like to introduce the New Direction 2017.

The structure of the board will now take shape of a directorship where the President will be the Chairman. There will be five other directors i.e. Administration (Secretary), Finance (Treasurer), Football Operations, Community Engagement and Social. Each of the directors will hold portfolios with attached managers. These managers will report to the directors monthly who in turn will report on their portfolios at a directors meeting.

There will be no need for the managers to attend directors meetings unless it is a special circumstance.  The number of managers and people assisting the director in a specific portfolio is unlimited. We hope to have many volunteers taking up small roles rather than a small amount taking up numerous roles. A lot of EFL clubs are adopting this structure and we hope at BFC that it will be successful and able us to move the club forward from 2017.

Portfolios will appear on the Website shortly and as Managers are appointed they will be announced  on the BFC website.
