PREMIERSHIP CUPS ON TOUR | Hawks Nest Coterie Group

The Hawks Nest Coterie Group has been the heartbeat of the club for 14 years now, providing much needed sponsorship money back to the club. The group has 80 plus dedicated supporters who turn up in numbers every home game but also travel to our away games. They are passionate and can be heard cheering from miles away!

As a club we are so fortunate to have the Coterie group not only for their sponsorship but the droves of volunteers they provide when hosting finals at Tormore.

The Coterie committee consists of Bomma, Leanne & Dillio Rech, Panda & Plugger who jumped at the opportunity to grab a photo with the cups @ Tormore.

Thanks again Coterie and we know this year has been a special one that has provided the group with the reward for the years of support!


2023 Election of Board and Committees

Congratulations to all who have been elected to the 2023 Board of Directors, Junior Committee and Senior Committee at the AGM on 26 October 2022.

We thank Tanya Parkins and David Nicholas who have retired from the Board but will act in their roles until new appointments are confirmed. We also thank former Chairperson Scott Nicholas for his vision and leadership over five years. Scott played an enormous role taking us through the “one club” transition; the founding of our women’s football program; the fostering of an inclusive culture and the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. #boroniahawks

Letter to All Past Players

Dear Past Players,
As a former player at the BHFNC we hope your association with us doesn’t completely diminish over time. Our club has always had a proud tradition of making former players most welcome when they visit our club for a home game at ‘The Hawka!’  We actually have a huge past player community that does support the club on a regular basis and our culture of inclusion has never been stronger. Other clubs marvel at our past player support on game day and when we reflect on its success, the answer lies in our capacity to make past players and supporters feel most welcome.


Whether through Murra’s Past Players & Supporters Group or Bomma’s Hawks Nest Coterie Group, we tend to be able to reach out to the 100’s of past players that have once donned the brown and gold jumper throughout each year and give them feedback on our proud clubs progress. This year, I’d love to be able to give more PP than ever before face to face feedback. 


After the tumultuous year of 2020, I’m reaching out to all past players to make an extra effort to get down to the club at some stage throughout season 2021. It really is like groundhog day when you do visit, the same voices, the same characters and we will make sure you enjoy the experience.


This year our playing list is as strong as it has been for many a year. Our coaching group is excited about our prospects and we really hope to build on the PP community to make the effort to re-visit our club. Our home game dates are as follows:

  • APRIL 17   V   MULGRAVE
  • MAY 1        V   HEATHMONT
  • MAY 8        V   THE BASIN
  • MAY 22      V   RINGWOOD
  • JUNE 5      V   MULGRAVE
  • JUNE 19    V   SOUTH BELGRAVE
  • JULY 10     V   TEMPLESTOWE
  • JULY 24      V   KNOX
  • AUG 7         V   SOUTH BELGRAVE

Whether you played 100 games or 2, you have all left a legacy at our club. We very much look forward to seeing you all at some stage at The Hawka in season 2021!

Greg “Flash” Hannon, Senior President, Boronia Hawks
