Boronia Hawks are very pleased to announce that Senior Coach, Matthew Clark, has committed to coach the Club for two more years, taking his tenure through to the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
Following the 2018 “triple” premiership in Division 3 in his first year with the Hawks, Matt has the senior team currently sitting second on the Division 2 ladder and looking to finish the home and away season strongly. Matt has earned the respect of all players and supporters with his straight-forward approach and strong planning and communication skills. Matt will be assisted once again by Steve Teakel, one of the most respected coaching gurus in Victorian community football.
In addition, the Club is very pleased to confirm that the entire senior coaching panel has recommitted to the Club for 2020. We have a very experienced team of coaches who have built an excellent learning environment for our players that has also delivered excellent results over the past two seasons.
Please join us in congratulating all coaches on their reappointment. We can all look forward to the further development of the Club and our players in the years to come.
The 2020 Senior Coaching Panel is:
Matthew Clark – Senior Coach
Steve Teakel – Senior Assistant Coach
Drew O’Hare – Senior Assistant Coach
Craig Brockley – Development Squad Coach
Greg Granland – Development Squad Assistant Coach
Craig McKenzie – Under 19’s Coach
Andrew Catley – Under 19’s Assistant Coach
Ray Lacey – Senior Women’s Coach
Scott Nicholas – Senior Women’s Coach
Greg Joseph – Veterans Coach
Other assistant coaches will be announced during the preseason.
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!!
