Dean Grice is Back to Boronia

Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club are very happy and excited to announce to all our supporters that DEAN GRICE has committed to the Club for the 2023 season.  We are also delighted to let you all know  that Dean will wear his father’s number 13 on his back in 2023.

Dean is a six-time winner of the Bob Henry Medal for senior Best & Fairest at Boronia. He also won four League B&F medals in seniors and one in the Colts. He was named six times in the EFNL Team of the Year. Dean has played a total of 150 senior games for Boronia and kicked 169 goals after a strong junior career for the Hawks with more B&F medals. Dean played senior VFL football with Port Melbourne in 2012 until a serious knee injury in his eighth game.

The Grice family needs no introduction to long time supporters of Boronia. Dean’s dad, Mark, was a stalwart player with the club during the late 70’s and early 80’s and went on to be senior Team Manager for several years when Dean was at his peak. Mark tragically passed away in November 2022.  Dean’s mum, Jan, has been a much loved and valued volunteer at the club for many, many years. 

Jan and Mark Grice

Following Mark’s passing, Dean returned to the club in January of this year. He hasn’t missed a session and is keen to continue his legacy at the club. We ask all players and supporters to welcome him back to the club he loves, and to give Dean and Jan all our love and support for the coming season.

Please welcome Kieran and his family to the Hawka!

Big Name Recruits across the League – especially at Boronia Hawks

“Plenty of off-season movement for the Hawks as they increase their depth at the club with multiple star players.

Former Essendon and Frankston midfielder Josh Begley is among those significant signings for the club, opening the premiership window up for the Hawks. Begley brings a combination of leadership, experience and talent with the ability to take the side to another level. He’ll be joined by Jethro Von Hesse who spent the last five seasons at Upwey-Tecoma, the two already have a solid connection with one another. Both are versatile quick big-bodied players with exceptional skills.

The club have also continued to develop their midfield depth and versatility with the additions of young stars, Max Brasher, Luke Flanagan, Haydn Stanley and Lachie Wright.

Both Brasher and Flanagan arrive from Upper Ferntree Gully with experience at senior-level footy in Division One. After two EFNL Best and Fairest awards in his junior career, Brasher has transitioned into senior footy well, placing in the top four of the club’s best and fairest in his first year of senior football. Flanagan has also transitioned into senior footy after winning the 2021 Under 19’s Best and Fairest”.

Haydn Stanley joins the Hawks.

BHFNC is delighted to announce the signing of Haydn Stanley!

Haydn played his junior football at the Upwey-Tecoma Football Club prior to playing two seasons at Eastern Ranges. He soon graduated into a senior footballer at Upwey and last season was a senior player at Vermont Football Club

An inside midfielder and genuine utility player, Haydn looks forward to joining our club and playing football with many of his closest mates

I’ve been fortunate to know Haydn and his parents Deb and Jaret for over 15 years and have no doubt, we have just recruited not only an exceptional footballer, but a great person!

Greg Hannon, Senior President

Welcome to Jethro!

Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club are very pleased to announce that JETHRO VON HESSE has signed on with the Hawka for 2023!

Jethro played juniors for Berwick where he won a couple of premierships including a Best on Ground performance in one of them. He then moved to Upwey Tecoma FC where he has played senior football for the last five years.

Jethro started his senior career as a centre half back but has since developed his running game to now play in the midfield. He is known for his composure and having plenty of time with the ball as well as being very good by foot and hitting a target.

Please welcome Jethro to the Hawka who will further bolster our inside and outside run in 2023.
