Thank you to DANNY FOTINATOS and KNOX LEISUREWORKS for Player Sponsorship of RYAN WHITE for the 2024 season.

Whitey went straight from Under 17’s to seniors, winning his first of two Bob Henry Medals in 2016 in his first season. Fun Fact: he completely bypassed Under 19’s and has never played Reserves. An outstanding footballer for the Hawks.


The BHFNC are very pleased to announce the re-signing of Mitch Mellis, Nick Knoops and Ryan White.

MITCH MELLIS brings with him speed, endurance, class, and ferocity to every contest and we are delighted to announce his re-signing for 2024. Clearly one of the best footballers in the EFNL, Mitch’s signature (even though it was taken on a napkin at Wayno’s red wine night) is big for our club as we strive to enter Division One in 2025. A leader at such a young age, he drives standards and demands respect!

NICK KNOOPS has been a revelation since joining our club. He can play forward or in the ruck and his contributions are significant each match day. A quiet, unassuming character, Nick plays a vital role in our set up and we are delighted with his signing for 2024.

RYAN WHITE is a dual Bob Henry Medallist and is all class. He can play on the wing, in the midfield, or even forward when asked. A running machine, Ryan is a respected leader at our club and a true Hawka!
