EFNL TEAMS OF THE YEAR | 10 HAWKS

Congratulations to all the Boronia players selected in the EFNL Teams of the Year for Division 1 Women and Division 2 Men. In particular, we can be very proud that our two Premiership Coaches, Scott Nicholas and Matt Clark, have been recognised as coaches of these 2023 Teams of the Year.


THREE LEAGUE B&F’s| CAYDEN WOOD

Cayden Wood has now joined Mitch Mellis in winning a third League Best and Fairest for Boronia Juniors.

Cayden has now won the EFNL Best and Fairest in three consecutive seasons: Under 13’s in 2021, Under 14’s in 2022 and Under 15’s in 2023. This matches the career of Mitch Mellis who won the medals in Under 11’s in 2012, Under 12’s in 2013 and Under 13’s in 2014.

Juniors who have won two League B&F’s are also some of the club’s most outstanding young players: Craig Folino in 13’s and 14’s in 1991 and 1992; Patrick Garrity in 12’s and 13’s in 1996 and 1997; and Alex Fiore in 12’s and 14’s in 2001 and 2003 (Alex was also runner-up by one vote in 2002 and won a 3rd medal at Knox in 2005).


JUNIOR CLUB AWARDS FOR 2023

Congratulations to all of our juniors who enjoyed themselves and played some great footy throughout the year. It was a very successful year on and off the field, with three teams making grand finals and the Under 14 Boys and Under 16 girls winning premierships.

We would like to recognise the club award winners, while remembering that their teammates, coaches and volunteers all contributed to the overall success of the Junior Hawks in 2023.


BLUE RIBBON MEDAL | RACHAEL SLATER

Congratulations to Rachel Slater for being awarded the Blue Ribbon Medal for her outstanding Best on Ground performance in the Division 1 Grand Final.

Congratulations Rachael on a great game to cap off your season!
