Craig McKenzie at the ERCA Awards

Congratulations to Craig McKenzie from @boroniahawks who was again a nominee for Youth Coach of the Year at the Eastern Region Coaches Association Awards. Fletch is a previous winner of this award.

The Hawks are very fortunate to have such a talented coach developing our young players.  Fletch was recently announced as the coach of both the Boronia U17’s and U19’s, a great move by the Club to develop the strong junior talent coming through the junior ranks.

NB: Craig is more commonly known as “Fletch” because his playing style was so reminiscent of Essendon great Dustin Fletcher, a fellow full back.
