Last night the Boronia Veterans commenced their pre-season training for the up and coming 2020 season.
They were in for a treat, as having trained for years with hand me down footballs, which often resembled basketballs, this season they will now be kicking around brand new Sherrins thanks to Ozito Industries.
With the donation of some great power tools, a few of the boys were able to raise some much needed cash to fund the purchase of these balls.
A big thank you to Ozito Industries for their ongoing support to Boronia Hawks Football Netball Club.
If you interested in playing Veterans footy with Boronia, please contact Greg Joseph (Coach) on 0412 604 249 or Jason Davis (Team Manager) on 0425 749 818?.

The “Who Could it Be” Medal for Veterans Best & Fairest – up to Round 6 of 9
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.
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!!

Start sorting out your diary for August and September as we head towards EFL and ERWFL Finals!
In a nutshell, we have four weeks of Division 1 finals at Tormore Reserve; the senior men are aiming to compete in Division 2 finals at East Burwood; the senior women at Mulgrave; and the Veterans at Lilydale.
The Club has a proud record of hosting finals over many years. This is made possible by two things: the superb facilities and playing surface of Tormore Reserve; and the fantastic support of our volunteers who run the match days so seamlessly. We are now asking for volunteers to step forward and offer their help for this year’s final series.
If you can help out in any way during the finals at Tormore please contact Greg Hannon on 0438 616 139, David Murrihy on 0418 542 337, Ellen Johnson for BBQ & Canteen on 0407 672 816 or Ellisa Schmidtke on 0417 593 884.
Things we need to to cover include:
traffic control and car parking;
car boot alcohol inspections at the gate;
canteen and kitchen assistants;
bar staff at two outside bar tents – must have RSA accreditation;
BBQ cooks and helpers for two / three BBQ tents;
delivering supplies to bars and BBQ’s.
** EFL passes for volunteers to gain no-cost admission to the ground will be available for collection from the Clubrooms after 7:00pm on Thursday nights during the finals.
