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!

One Club – Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club

Boronia Football Club and Boronia Junior Football Club are very pleased to announce to all players, members, sponsors and supporters that the three resolutions put to a vote at last night’s Special General Meeting were passed. The two clubs will now proceed with plans to formalise our merger to one Club, the Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club.

The One Club Solution will ensure a sustainable football pathway from AusKick to Juniors to U19’s to Seniors, and even to Veterans. The goal is to provide a similar pathway for girls footy from AusKick to Juniors then Seniors, and also to build on our current commitment to the Club’s Netball program.

Last night’s meeting was well attended and provided an open forum for discussion and understanding of the Club’s future strategic direction. Many thanks to all those who attended or lodged proxies. Thank you also to Kristan Wood and Ellisa Schmidtke for successfully leading this initiative for our Club’s future.
