There has been some discussion over the past two days regarding access for our volunteers to the Club’s social media platforms. On behalf of the Club’s Board I would like to let all supporters know that it was agreed at our Board meeting in September that we will review and change our approach to Social Media as we head in to 2020.
There will be more news on this as our new Board and Committee members settle in to their roles over the next two months. The main objective is that the Club is fully compliant with best practice for the use of social media by community clubs. This is consistent with the Club’s Social Media Policy, which is available for your reference on our website.
A key component of our policy is that all volunteers publishing on behalf of the Club have undertaken appropriate training so that they fully understand our policy and our reasonable expectations in respect of social media posts by club members and supporters. Please click on the link above to read the policy and feel free to ask any questions that you may have.

Son of Boronia legend, Peter Farrell, Jacob started with Boronia Juniors back in 2005 in Under 9’s. He has spent the last few years with FTG where Pete was Senior Coach, but is very happy to get back in the brown and gold for a fresh start with his footy.
With 139 games for Boronia, and 46 senior games with FTG, “Faz” is now a bigger and stronger senior footballer who can play as a key defender.
The club is absolutely thrilled to have the Farrell family back at the Club. Please get around Jacob and make him feel like he is truly back home!

Taylor is around the 6’2″ mark, plays as a midfielder, and is very capable of kicking goals when swung up forward. At only 27 years of age, he has played over 150 senior games at Wantirna South, after playing his early footy with Bayswater and Eastern Ranges.
He has won three Club B&F’s at Wantirna South, kicked almost 200 goals, and was a key player in their 2014 Division 3 premiership under Clarky’s coaching. Taylor has been named 6 times in the EFL Team of the Year, which is a great indicator of how highly he is regarded by opposition coaches.
Taylor can’t wait to get around the boys and get stuck in to a big preseason. Please make sure that you make Taylor and his family feel very welcome in joining us at the Hawka.
