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!


We are very pleased to announce that the Boronia Hawks Nest Coterie Group are once again Platinum Sponsors in 2023.

Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club is very proud to announce the Boronia Hawks Nest Coterie Group as a Platinum Sponsor. We thank them for their generous contributions and support to the Club for the 2021 season.

The Coterie has been an integral part of the Club for many years, not only contributing to on- field success, but a range of off-field projects including the recent investment in gym equipment, and most importantly, as part of the fabric and culture of the Club.

We look forward to utilising the funds for the 2021 season to help develop our Junior Program for young boys and girls through the subsidies of FREE REGISTRATION FEES, and contributions for our Senior Men’s Program.

Thank you again to Coterie Chair, Robert Kimmitt and the whole Coterie Group. We look forward to another successful year in brown and gold.

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:

  • MAY 1        V   HEATHMONT
  • MAY 8        V   THE BASIN
  • MAY 22      V   RINGWOOD
  • JUNE 5      V   MULGRAVE
  • 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

AFL Victoria Funding for New Lights
