A Message from the Club Chairman about COVID-19


The Club’s Board of Directors is closely monitoring available information from government sources, AFL Victoria and EFNL in respect of Coronavirus. The Board is guided by recent statements from these official sources, but is also now considering contingency plans should circumstances require changes in planned events, training or practice matches. The Directors are taking the best available advice and will have the health of our members as our first priority in all decisions in the lead up to the start of the football and netball seasons.


All players, members and volunteers should be alert to the risks of COVID-19, but not alarmed. Please take sensible precautions with your own personal care and hygiene. Respect the space of people around you and look after those who may be vulnerable. Bring your own water bottles to training, avoid handshakes, and do not attend the Club if you are unwell.

Please feel free to contact any Board member if you have questions, but we undertake to keep you fully informed as the situation evolves.

Scott Nicholas
Chairman, BHFNC

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.
