Announcement of 2018 Netball Teams

It is very exciting to announce that Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club will once again be fielding 3 teams in the 2018 EFL Netball season.  Congratulations to Sherridan Martin, our Director of Inclusion and Netball Manager, for all her great work over the off-season in getting everything organised in the lead up to another great year.


We are very pleased to welcome 13 new players across our 3 teams this year, including Ellie Ingerwersen, the former EFL Admin, Events and Netball Manager.  In what is almost a direct swap, former star Hawk Petra Keogh has recently started as Ellie’s replacement with the EFL!


We are also very pleased that our great supporters and sponsors at Glenbrae Signs have refreshed our club logo to incorporate a netball!



Stand by for more announcements in the very near future as we quickly approach round 1 on Friday 13 April.

Knox Relay for Life – a message from Hon. Alan Tudge M.P.









I’m seeking your support for a significant community event coming up in Knox.  I’m proud to be Patron of the event and I am encouraging the local community to get behind the volunteer committee and get involved.

Knox Relay for Life supports the Cancer Council of Victoria.  Relay for Life has been running in communities across Australia for 17 years and this will be the seventh anniversary of the Knox Relay for Life.


Knox Relay for Life consists of teams who walk, jog or run for 18 hours around the Knox Athletics Track.  Rest assured, you don’t have to do the whole 18 hours yourself (although some people do!).  Rather, your team has to ensure that your team’s baton is being carried for the entire duration.  Teams gather sponsors and/or raise money for participating.  The Relay is also a time to remember those who have been lost to cancer or are in the process of having treatment or to celebrate with those who have beaten cancer.

The Relay for Life this year is again occurring at Knox Athletics Track on Saturday 21 April 2018, starting at 4pm for the official opening and finishing on Sunday 22 April 2018 at 10am. The committee would like to see a record number of teams and participants for their seventh year as do I.

Please consider registering a team from your Community to participate in the event.  Alternatively, you and your members would be very welcome to join TeamTudge or just come down to the event for part of the time and possibly throw in a few dollars.

You can find more detailed information and how to register at Knox Relay for Life.

Thanks for considering my request.

Kind regards,



Tackling Training for our Womens Team with @malcolmbangsTT

Our Boronia Hawks Women’s Team thoroughly enjoyed their recent training session with Malcolm Bangs, a specialist tackling coach!  Malcom runs a Tackles and Takedowns program that combines AFL tackling with judo principles and balance techniques.  We were very fortunate to have Malcolm come down to work with the girls, and we are very grateful for his time.  The feedback from the girls was very positive, and they continue to enjoy all their skills sessions with Senior Womens Coach, Ray Lacey.

Malcolm has extensive experience including clients such as Geelong FC (AFL), Carlton FC (AFLW), Werribee FC (VFL), Melbourne Uni WFC (VFLW), Calder Cannons FC, Eastern Ranges FC (TAC Cup / TAC Cup YG).  He can now add the mighty Hawks to his resume!  Be sure to check out Malcolm’s feeds on Twitter and Instagram at @malcolmbangsTT

All prospective players, regardless of footy experience, are very welcome to join us on Monday and Wednesday nights at Miller Park on Mountain Highway, Boronia.  It’s all about Fun, Friends, Fitness and Footy.  Please contact our Senior President Scott Nicholas on 0403 238 494 for any enquiries.

safe contact and tackling

Any volunteers please?

Boronia Hawks are looking for someone from the Club community to help out Kristan Wood and Samantha Dunkinson with our sponsorships.

It’s not running the show – we just need a spare pair of hands from an enthusiastic volunteer or two. As an example, we could do with someone who could look after the player sponsorships, just like Fletch in 2017. Maybe grab a mate or a partner and put both hands up!

If you would like to help out, please speak to Woody or send him a quick text on 0411 605 203.

Vale Faye Manfre

It is with a heavy heart and much sadness that we share the heartbreaking news of the passing of Faye Manfre, mum of one of our U17’s players Matt Manfre.

Faye passed away earlier this week after a long illness. Tragically for Matt, his sister Sara and his family, today marks the second anniversary of the loss of their father.

The thoughts and prayers of the Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club community are with Matt, his sister Sara, and his uncle and aunt Peter and Sonia, who will now care for their nephew and niece.
