Senior Men's & Women's Football and Netball, Junior Boys & Girls Football, Auskick and over 35's Veterans and Masters Football. Affiliated with EFNL. We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land in Boronia.
On Tuesday night our Under 14 Boys were surprised by Hawthorn triple Premiership player & this years’ Number 1 Ticket Holder, Liam Shiels!! Liam took the boys’ training session, answered questions and signed some autographs.
Many thanks to Liam who has always been willing to make time to support the Boronia Hawks juniors.
Fun Fact: Liam Shiels transferred to play with Boronia in Under 18’s but spent all year with Eastern Ranges before being selected by Hawthorn at pick 8 in the 2008 National Draft. We still hope to get him back one day for a kick with the Hawka!
What a moment it was when Alan Tudge MP, the federal Member for Aston, announced at our Presidents Lunch on 9 April the funding of $5M for the development and construction of a new pavilion at Tormore Reserve.
Alan followed up with this announcement on his Facebook page.
$5 MILLION FOR A NEW PAVILION AT TORMORE RESERVE, BORONIA
For over ten years, the leaders of Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club and Boronia Cricket Club have been pressing for an upgraded pavilion to replace the 40 year old club rooms. Today, I announced $5 million of federal funds to make this happen. Congratulations to all of those who persisted to make this happen. It will be a great result for the entire Boronia community.
The Club is now working hard to move quickly from the announcement towards a framework that will deliver the fulfilment of our needs as a modern, inclusive community club with strong growth, particularly in female participation. We are working closely with our co-tenants from Boronia Cricket Club, who are an essential partner for all development of facilities at Tormore Reserve.
We are now proud to announce the formation of the Steering Committee that will be pivotal to the success of the development project. The committee will be chaired by Wayne Preston, who has already played a huge role in getting us to this point. This is a strong group of volunteers with the skills and knowledge necessary for such a task and who are all passionate and committed to their clubs and community.
Wayne Preston – Senior Vice President, BHFNC;
Scott Nicholas – Chair, Board of Directors, BHFNC;
Karen Little – Women’s Football Operations Manager, BHFNC;
David Murrihy – former Club Secretary and Life Member, BHFNC;
Paul Noone – President, BCC;
Matt Smythe – Vice-President, BCC;
Leigh Blennerhasset – Secretary, BCC;
Melanie Kogelman – Treasurer, BCC.
All members and supporters of our club are welcome to read the overview of the Steering Committee’s role and responsibilities, which has been shared with, and welcomed by, our community representatives Alan Tudge MP, Jackson Taylor MP and Cr Yvonne Allred.
The poles have arrived for the new nets behind the goals at the scoreboard end of Tormore Reserve!
A very big thank you to Knox City Council for the installation of nets at both ends of the ground over the past two years. These new nets will protect the neighbours and will save on lost footies for the Club.
Thanks to our roving reporter Phil Watson who always keeps a very close eye on all developments in the surrounds at Tormore Reserve, Home of the HAWKA!
