Boronia Hawks are very pleased to announce that another four of our favourite players have all re-committed for the 2024 season, including two big comebacks! Please join us all in thanking Alex Kufel, Bec Carpenter, Ye Jeffries and Rylee Krenn for their commitment to the Hawks. 


Boronia Hawks are delighted to announce that Stacey Peril has been reappointed as Masters Coach for the 2024 season.

Stacey was our inaugural coach in 2023 and lead the team through their first season as the player numbers grew along with the team development and enjoyment. Stacey has played with Boronia since 2018 and in 2023 she played her 50th game and also represented Vic Country in Masters Football. She has been actively involved with the Hawks as a junior mum, committee member, junior coach, senior player and now continues as Masters Coach.

Please join us all in thanking Stacey for her loyalty and commitment to the Hawks.


Boronia Hawks are very pleased to announce that another four of our best players have all re-committed for the 2024 season. Please join us all in thanking Olivia Baxter, Matilda Birkett, Crystal Chinn and Holly Flanagan for their commitment to the Hawks.

Olivia has been a reliable contributor since joing the Hawks in 2021. Playing most of her football on the wing and in the midfield, Liv was one of the Dev Squad’s strongest players in 2023. Liv is a hard, aggressive player with a long penetrating kick and really stood up against strong opposition last year. It’s great to see Liv back on board, and ready for another year in brown and gold!

Matilda joined us from Vermont and owned her position on the wing throughout the season. Tilly’s strengths are her fierce competitiveness, hard running and tackling. She continued to develop throughout the season and is just scratching the surface. She plays well against the best sides and really stepped up in the Finals against Park Orchards and The Basin. We can’t wait to see Tilly in brown and gold again in 2024!

Chinny has been a huge part of our squad since joining Boronia in 2022. Great skills, great hands and a strong leading mark, Chinny has mostly played up forward over the past few seasons. After spending some time playing across half back in 2023, Chinny is contiuing to develop and expand her game, and we can’t wait to see one of our squad’s most popular players back in brown and gold for 2024!

Holly is ready and raring to go for 2024, after finishing her first season with the Hawks in 2023. Playing mostly as a forward and through the midfield Holly showed her skills, footy smarts and ability to find the ball in her 9 games this year. Although her season was interupted with injury, she has quickly established herself as a favourite amongst teammates, and a pivotal player in our Premiership side, and we can’t wait to see Holly in action next year!


Boronia Hawks are very pleased to announce that four more of our best players have all recommitted for the 2024 season. Please join us all in thanking Amanda Cellante, Ebony Miller, Emily Cahill and Lesha Perrett for their commitment to the Hawks.


Boronia Hawks are very pleased to announce another four of our best young players have re-committed for the 2024 season. Please join us all in thanking Paige Deane, Tamlynn Collins, Mel Carpenter and Maddison Suppa for their commitment to the Hawks.

Deano very quickly became one the squad’s most exciting players to watch after joining us from Bayswater. Playing mostly at half forward, Paige came third in our goalkicking with 16 for the year from 17 games. Her speed is electric and has a booming long kick, and she’s just getting started. Still so young we are excited to see Paige continue her growth and development, and expand her game in brown and gold in 2024.

After injury interupted seasons in 2021 and 2022, Tamlynn took her game to another level in 2023, behing one of our most impactful players in the second half of the year. Tam kicked 11 goals from 10 games in the Seniors with great forward craft and pressure, and played a huge role on Grand Final day on the wing highlighting her versatility.

Mel flourished in her second season at Boronia. After playing in 2022 as an Under 18 making her Senior debut that year, Mel took her game to another level in 2023 after a strong pre-season wininng the Development side Best and Fairest. Mel’s weapons are her attack on the ball, run and penetrating kick, and we can’t wait to see them again in 2024!

Maddi joined the squad in 2023 and has quickly established herself as one of our most exciting young prospects. After making her Senior debut in Round 1 against Beaconsfield, Maddi played across both teams throughout the season, playing a number of roles in the midfield, wing and in defense. With another strong pre-season we can’t wait to see Maddi take her game to another level in 2024!


Boronia Hawks are very excited that our Pre-Season Training for Masters Women will kick off next Tuesday 21st November at Boronia Heights Primary School. Training sessions will be Tuesdays and Thursdays nights from 6pm to 7:30pm. We’ll be doing four weeks of training before we break for Christmas. Our focus will be on building a base of skills, fitness and game sense before a big 2024 season!

  • No previous footy experience is necessary!
  • All abilities and fitness levels are more than welcome!
  • We provide a very welcoming and supportive team environment for every lady who would like to give footy a crack.
  • Come along to try it out and feel free to bring a buddy for moral support.
  • Please check out our webpage for more information.


Boronia Hawks are very pleased to announce that the four players who made up the 2023 Leadership Group for the Women’s Development Team have all re-committed for the 2024 season. Please join us all in thanking Darcy Langford, Erin Nicholas, Caity Goldsack and Gen Lyons for their commitment to the Hawks.

After winning the Development Squad Best & Fairest in 2022, Darcy was appointed Captain of the Development Team in 2023. A fierce competitor who now has over 68 games played for the brown and gold, Darcy is excited for a big pre-season and 2024!

Erin has been part of the fabric of the Devlopment Team since joining in 2018, recognised as Players Player (Development Team) in 2022. A leader within the team for the past few years, Erin has now played over 50 games for the Hawks!

Caity joined the Development Squad leadership group for the first time in 2023, highlighting her consistency and work ethic. Caity has played down back and on ball over the past couple of seasons and is looking to take her game to another level in 2024.

Gen has been a key player for the D Squad over the past few seasons, and has continued to develop her skills and knowledge of the game during this time. After getting a taste of Senior football in 2022, Gen stepped up into the role of Vice-Captain for the Development Team in 2023 and we’re excited to see her back in brown and gold next season.
