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

Vale Garry Field

Boronia Football Club is saddened to hear of the passing of esteemed friend and life member, Garry Field.

Garry was a long time supporter of the footy club, filling many roles including that of bar manager, property steward and raffle ticket seller. He was a member of the club’s committee for more than 15 years and also took on the role of club president in 1995. Quiet and reserved by nature, Garry was a deep thinker who raised many ideas that he hoped would fulfil his passion to see Boronia Football Club become a powerhouse in eastern suburbs football.

With his respected position in both the football club and Boronia Cricket Club, one of Garry’s deepest desires was to see both clubs become a unified sporting club jointly sharing and managing one of Melbourne’s best local sporting venues.

The Boronia Football Club Board, Past Players’ Group and all members extend their heartfelt thoughts and condolences to Garry’s family and friends.


1977 Premiership Reunion – Special Edition of “The Hawker”

It was 40 years ago that Boronia Football Club won all three premierships – Firsts, Seconds and Thirds – in the Eastern District Football League Division 3. Those champion players of 1977, and all other past players, are cordially invited to relive their glory days on Saturday 1 July at Tormore Reserve.

Many thanks to David Murrihy and John Tunstall and the Past Players and Supporters Group for their efforts in arranging the reunion.
