BHFNC are delighted to announce the re-signing of Max Brasher, Luke Flanagan, Mitch Jelo and Jake Mellis.

Max Brasher was recruited to the Hawka this year and has not put a foot wrong. He’s a skillful, fit player and a natural runner. Max adds depth and class to our midfield and we are absolutely stoked to have Max sign on for another year at Boronia and we all hope he becomes a 200-game player for our club.

Luke Flanagan has not put in a bad performance across half-back all year and gives our defence run and consistency of effort. This kid can play! He comes from a ripping family and just belongs at our club.

Mitch Jelo was also recruited this season, across from Noble Park. He arrived not knowing anyone but we soon got to know his tough, uncompromising, old style, and his dangerous nature around goals. Mitch’s re-signing is a real boost for our club!

Jake Mellis is our most talented utility player and has really stamped his authority this season, making himself a respected and highly regarded senior player. Coming from a great Hawka family where his father and uncle played many games in the brown and gold, and having a mother who has been on various junior committee and senior committee roles to now senior team manager, Jake is continuing and maintaining the Mellis family tradition. Jake is a most talented player and brings with him team enthusiasm and culture that we would love to be able to bottle! We love Jake being at our club! A top bloke, a real team player and a bloody good old-fashioned player!!!
