Liam comes to Boronia with an impressive football CV to match his 194cm frame.

After spending the footy off-season as a “Fly In – Fly Out” player in the NTFL with Darwin Buffalos he played 2023 in the strong Central Murray Football League with Tyntynder.

Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club is very pleased to announce the first of our new players for the 2024 Senior Women’s squad. Emily Wellington has joined the club to play with her former teammate Mackenzie Suppa, who has also signed up for the new season. Please join us all in welcoming Em to the Club and thanking Macka for her commitment to the Hawks.

We’re excited to welcome Emily Wellington down to Boronia after last playing with Blackburn in Under 18 Premier. Em has been training the house down before Christmas and impressed with her skills, attitude and training intensity. We can’t wait to see her in brown and gold in 2024.

Macka is back on board for season 2024! One of our most skilled and exciting young players, Mackenzie joined the Hawks in 2023 and showed a great football IQ and goal sense in three games, but missed time due to injury throughout the season. The sky is the limit and we can’t wait to see what 2024 has in store!


Boronia Hawks are very pleased to announce that another of our premiership players has re-committed for the 2024 season. Please join us all in thanking Joan Dekker for her commitment to the Hawks. 

Joan joined Boronia in 2023 and had immediate impact for our Senior team. After playing most of her football in defence, Joan excelled in the ruck with her athleticism, run and tackling pressure adding a lot to our midfield. We can’t wait to see Joan’s development continue in 2024.


Congratulations to three of our senior men’s players who have been named in the best players in all the metropolitan leagues for 2023. Well done boys!

Ben Robertson: Finished equal-third in the Eastern Division 2 goalkicking this year with 50 majors from 19 matches, helping Boronia to the top of the ladder and the premiership. Capped off a stellar campaign with four goals in the grand final victory over Heathmont.

Josh Begley: Potent through the middle and in attack, the ex-AFL Bomber hauled in big numbers in his return to the league this season, kicking 50 goals from 19 games among a string of high possession counts across the season. A key part in Boronia’s premiership-winning campaign in Eastern’s Division 2 this year, which lost just one match all season.

Mitch Mellis: The lightning-quick 22-year-old midfielder took home Eastern’s Division 2 best and fairest this season, and was a key part of a Boronia outfit which has finished top of the ladder season on the way to the flag. Ruck rover in the Team of the Year.
