Recruiting Announcement – presented by BARK KING!

Boronia Hawks are very pleased to announce to all members and supporters that former junior JACOB FARRELL will be Back to Boronia in 2020.

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!

Major Recruiting Announcement – presented by Bark King

Boronia Hawks is very excited to announce to members and supporters that TAYLOR LEGGATE will be joining the Hawks for 2020.

Taylor is joining the Hawks from Wantirna South as a highly credentialed recruit with a great CV and lot of good footy still ahead of him. He has of course been coached for several years by Matt Clark and Steve Teakel, who know that he is both a great footballer and a terrific person.

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.
