Herald Sun “Local Footy” article from Toby Prime

20100329-DSC_0273
Steve Teakel and Matt Clark at Tormore Reserve, Boronia.

Could Boronia coach Matt Clark cross paths with former club Wantirna South?

It’s a possibility.  Clark has recommitted to the Hawks for a further two years after signing a contract extension until the end of 2021.

He coached Wantirna South to a flag in 2014 and joined Boronia ahead of the 2018 season. A premiership this year would take Boronia up to EFL Division 1, where the Hawks would meet the Devils in 2020.

“Hopefully that’s on the agenda,” Clark said.

“Ultimately our goal is to be playing against them next year.”

Clark said it was a logical decision to extend his stay at Tormore Reserve.

“They’re a good club with a really young list and I’m super happy where they’re at and they’re comfortable where I’m at, too,” he said.

“I really enjoy working with the guys. It’s a fun place to be at the moment.”

Clark guided Boronia to a premiership in his first season but the Hawks were not promoted as part of the competition restructure.  Boronia will enter this year’s finals series on a 10-game winning streak if it defeats Ringwood on Saturday in a top-of-the-table clash.  It has already secured the double chance, but has flag rivals in Ringwood, Mitcham, Heathmont and Templestowe in an open premiership race.

Clark said he wanted to take Boronia to Division 1.

“We’re trying to make it a destination club and I think we’re doing a pretty good job of that at the moment,” he said.

“The players are hungry so my job is to obviously steer them in that direction. There’s no guarantee we can get there but we certainly think we’ve got a good formula to be competitive enough and be in the mix to get there.”

20190721_3203

 

Clark said the Hawks would be at near full strength for a tilt at back-to-back flags.

“We’re very happy with who we’re putting out there,” he said.

“We’ve played a couple of guys, like Lachie Watson and Brayden Bowes, in the development team for the last four, five weeks.

“The hard thing — and the good thing — is we’ve got so many guys playing good footy in the seniors at the moment that some of these blokes are just finding it hard to get into the side.

“Internal pressure is driving really good training standards and game-day performance.”

200th Game for Matt Buzinskas

200 GAMES Matt Buzinskas

Please join us all in congratulating Matt Buzinskas on the occasion of this 200th Senior Game for Boronia Hawks in Round 17.

This is a massive achievement, with very few players reaching this milestone with the Hawks in recent years.  Even more remarkable is that Buzz has played at four other clubs during his career.

In fact, Buzz has racked up well over 350 games in total if we add on 89 junior games for Boronia; a junior season at North Ringwood; a senior premiership at Forrest in 2005, 17 games for Watsonia; and 17 games for Wantirna South!

Buzz has been a standout player for Boronia since his senior debut in 2006 as a seventeen year old, but with a rig and attitude well prepared for senior footy.  He has only played 2 games of Under 18’s footy and only 16 Reserves games so he has been a fixture in the senior team as an inside mid and crumbing forward.

Boronia Football Club Preseason Training
The Rig – 2015

Buzz’s goal sense has been a feature of his game, with 208 senior goals for the Hawka and a best of 7 in one game back in 2007.  There has been no greater sight in recent years than Buzz charging through the guts to kick a team-lifting goal then running back to the middle with a modest celebration as the Hawka faithful raise their voices, and cans,  to salute another Buzz special!

2014 Finals at Jubilee Park.

Buzz is a true champion of the Club.  He provides a great example for our young players and is still playing tremendous footy in 2019.  Congratulations to Buzz from everyone at Boronia Hawks.  We wish him, and his family, our very best wishes for his  milestone game and for many more to come.  We can’t wait to see him teaming up with Woody and Stifler in the Vets!

  • Senior Co-Captain in 2015.
  • 2018 Senior Premiership player.
  • 2012 Reserves Premiership player.
  • 150 Games Trophy in 2015.

Junior President’s Update

66648107_2312564878985879_5779327844836442112_o.jpg

The Home & Away season has come to an end with Junior Finals starting this weekend.  We have U12Girls, U12, U13, U16Girls and U17’s heading into Round 1 of Finals.  The girls have a bye this week, but the boys are in full swing.  It is wonderful and exciting for these teams to have this opportunity.  Please get down and support them if you can.  All finals details are available on the EFL website.  

64328633_2292942237614810_7607457034878844928_o

As always it’s still a busy time of the season.  We see Boronia Auskick have it’s last session this coming Friday night.  This will be a fun night of games and presentations to all the children.  It’s also an opportunity for Auskickers moving up to next Under 8’s to get registered and ready for footy next season.

60980325_10156424483752634_8568279530102325248_n

We have our Under 17 Presentation Evening on Saturday 31 August at the Knox Club.  This is quite a formal evening where the Under 17’s dress up in their finest as we announce the winner of the 2019 Ray Lacey Medal for Best & Fairest.   It is done this way, as the majority of these players have played their last year of Junior football, so it’s nice to make it special for them.   Our Junior Presentation Day for all other Junior Teams will be held on Sunday 8 September.  Details will be distributed shortly.

Miller Park is looking a treat and we look forward to heading back there for our 2020 Junior Season.  The surface will be an outstanding improvement of what is has been in the past and even Chandler Park became quite boggy by the end of the season.

The Junior Committee has been working hard on strategies to continue to increase numbers for the coming 2020 season.  They have also been busy working on building our Boronia Auskick program going forward.  Being part of our great Junior Committee is an extremely rewarding process.  Knowing that you can have a small impact on improving the club that your children play for is very satisfying.  I would encourage any parent who would like to get involved to please email us on boroniajnr@elf.org.au.

IMG_0078

We are also seeking Junior Coaches for 2020.  All positions are open.  If you would like to have an opportunity to coach one of our Junior Teams, please ensure that you put your application in.  ALL 2019 coaches and potential coaches for 2020 need to apply for positions, it’s not just a given that this year’s coach will continue into next year.  No experience necessary as we will provide you with support and training course necessary to do a great job.

58430234_2260546274187740_3752055177490726912_o

We are loving our new Training/Warm up tops!  Another order will be placed prior to the end of August and order forms will be sent out in the next week.  Orders will close quickly so ensure you put your order in as soon as the forms are release.  We also have great new Sports Bags available across the club.  These can be purchased the Club at on Thursday nights.

Senior President’s Update

IMG_8811

To say our season for the senior men has been a roller coaster would be an understatement.  Thankfully, nearly all our injured players are back on the field and, with three games to go, we should have close to a full list vying for a senior game come finals!

It would be great if as many supporters as possible get down to ‘The Hawka’ over the next two weeks to give our teams an extra boost leading into their finals campaigns.

186A7193

 

Our senior women’s team kick off at 8:20am this Saturday for their final home and away match of the season, before they commence their first finals campaign at Mulgrave on 18 August.  Special thanks must go out to Lace and Snicko (Ray Lacey and Scott Nicholas) for doing a tremendous job coaching our growing list of female players. We began with 9 women last year, but they have built that up to well over 30 this year.  With two junior girls teams, who knows where we will be in season 2020!

20190629-186A4374

After the senior game last Saturday, the Mulgrave rooms were just full of Boronia people. Probably 80% Boronia in their homerooms!! The senior umpire said to me; ‘The culture you have at Boronia is just amazing.  You have Panda, the Krenn’s at every game and people like Bomma running Coterie – it’s incredible!’  And he is right!

Our 19’s have been incredible with up to 5 eligible players playing senior football in recent weeks!  Our Development team is on top and our senior team is half a percentage point off top spot too! Without getting ahead of ourselves, the Club is well placed to have a fair dinkum crack come finals time!

20190721_328

Unfortunately, our two netball teams, Hawks and Brown will be hard pressed to play finals this season with only 2 games to go.  The Hawks in Premier Division have won 4 games from 11, with 4 thrillers decided by 4 points or less.  The “Brownies” have suffered from injuries all season and have only managed 2 wins so far.  On a brighter note, over 30 players have played netball with the Club this season, including a number of “cross overs” from our women’s footy team who are happy to double up for the weekend!

IMG_0293

The Vets finished their season under lights in the wilds of South Belgrave last Friday.  The boys kicked on to celebrate the end of their season in fine style, because they played some great footy during the year and welcomed many new players to the Club.  Thanks to Joey, Jason and the boys for another great season.  Success will come!

20190526-186A2604.jpg

Off the field, our new lights get installed at Tormore Reserve this week.  This is a most exciting development and will give our Club incredible flexibility when fixturing matches in future years.  Special thanks to Woody (Kristan Wood) for facilitating this project.  In addition, much work has been done behind the scenes to secure funding for a facility upgrade in the next 2 to 3 years.   We hope to have some meaningful announcements in the coming months!

Please get behind Murra (David Murrihy) and support our finals hosting program.  This is equivalent to a major club sponsorship and we need as many volunteers as possible to make this work!

20170916-186A0477

We have the Presidents Lunch with Matthew Richardson, which is completely sold out, on August 17 and the vote count night after our last match of the season!  The senior Awards Night is on 4 October and DOES NOT clash with the Vet’s Footy Trip!

The next 7 weeks could be ‘crazy’ busy but get involved and cheer loudly!!

Go Hawka!
