Thank you to SAM JORDAN and COMPLIANCE ROOFING & PLUMBING for Player Sponsorship of LUKE FLANAGAN for the 2024 season.

Luke had a great junior career with the Hawks, before playing a bit of senior footy with UFTG. He was back to Boronia in 2023 and slotted nicely into the backline, resulting in a shiny premiership medal around his neck! Good skills and run will see Luke playing good footy with the Hawks for years to come.


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!!!

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”.

Luke Flanagan is Back to Boronia

Boronia Hawks are very excited to welcome LUKE FLANAGAN back to Boronia for the 2023 season.

Luke is coming back home to Boronia after playing his junior career with the Hawks through to 2019.

He played an exceptional 150 games for the club at junior level, and was named as 2019 Best Finals Player in his final season with the Under 17’s.

Luke spent 2021 and 2022 at UFTG, playing with mates. He won Upper’s 2021 Under 19’s B&F and was also named as their MVP. He debuted in the seniors in 2021, and then stepped up and played 12 games in a very solid season of Division 1 football in 2022. We are delighted to have Luke and his family back at the Club.

Many thanks to Repurpose It for their support of our 2023 Preseason.
