Our Senior President, Greg “Flash” Hannon has a message for the club community at the mid-point of the season as we head into the June long weekend.

It’s hard to fathom that we are at the halfway point of the season already. What’s not hard to fathom is that our teams are having great success which is not only due to talent but also hard work from the Board, Committee, Coaches, and the army of Volunteers that continue to support our club! 

So – I wish to acknowledge and thank the following:

~ Our players are all just quality people and terrific ambassadors for our club! Keep supporting our functions and keep using your drive, energy, and initiatives to make our club grow and improve.

~ Our coaching staff are not just great coaches but they all build meaningful relationships with their players and care about the wellbeing of each individual at our club.

~ Our Incredible volunteers range from Committee Members to Board Members to the many that just give a little of their time to ensure our club can tick along nicely. Without our volunteers, we just don’t have a club so a huge thank you to you all!

~ To our Hawks Nest Coterie leadership, our Coterie members and to all our supportersthat give our club undivided support on and off the field.

~ Our loyal sponsors. Our sponsors give us the funding that we require to operate a successful club. Thank you to all of you!

~ To the families of our players. Your support behind the scenes often goes unnoticed. You feed, clean, and offer emotional support to your child, husband, wife, partner, parent and we thank you for that. I’m sure our players do!

Flash (Greg Hannon) – Senior Club President


We are looking for some extra volunteers who would be able to help spread the load of looking after our social media and other communications like email.

Rather than the responsibility sitting with just one or two, we are looking for a few motivated people across the playing groups and supporter base who can commit to taking on specific tasks on a recurring basis each week to ensure we can communicate all the great things going on at our club in a sustainable way as the club continues to grow. Depending on the time you’d like to commit you could take on one of the tasks or maybe a few.

You may already have some skills in this area, be keen to learn more or are just looking for a way to throw your hat into the ring. Any training you would need on the systems we use would be provided and most items are now templated.

Some of the key tasks include:

  • Women’s Football & Netball Team Announcements
  • Men’s Football Team Announcements
  • Game Day Score Updates & Saturday Scoreboard Summary
  • Sharing relevant updates during the week e.g., Hawka Lotto, posts from junior page
  • Sharing posts from other relevant pages e.g. EFNL, Premier Data, Media etc
  • Sharing photos after games
  • Promoting club & player sponsors, sharing relevant updates
  • Promoting community partner offers
  • Promoting club events & news
  • Managing and distributing an email newsletter (something new)
  • Replying to messages
  • We’d also be keen to hear from anyone who would like to volunteer their photography, videography or graphic design skills in any way throughout the season or on a regular basis.

If you are interested in putting your hand up, please email me at with your expression of interest!


Jax Phillips, Director of Communications

BHFNC Board Update

There has been a couple of changes with the Club’s Board of Directors.

Firstly, we farewell Kerryn Westcott, Director of Community & Inclusion. Kerryn is stepping down from the board to focus on her many other volunteer roles. Kerryn has done a phenomenal amount of work for the club, sourcing every grant possible to improve our facilities and offer more to our community. She will be sorely missed but we wish her all the best.

Secondly, we welcome Veronica Rankin into the role of Director of Administration for 2023. Veronica is no stranger to the club, her son has played in our junior ranks and now a member of our Men’s program. Veronica has been a past under 19s Team Manager, one of the most organised, so we are so pleased to have her leading the charge in all things admin this year. Tanya Parkins will step in one last time helping us get Veronica up to speed, we thank her again for her support.

We are still on the hunt for a Director of Finance – if you or you know someone who is interested please reach out to Kat McMahon

At this stage, we won’t formally replace the Director of Community & Inclusion, however if this role is of interest to you please also reach out.

Chairperson, Kat McMahon
