Harvey Chinn from Boronia Hawks has recently been selected for Port Melbourne Football Club’s VFL List for the 2019 season. This is a great reward for Harvey as it recognises the amount of hard work and dedication that he has put in to his football over the past seven years since he joined Boronia as a junior player. It also demonstrates the ability of Boronia Hawks to nurture and develop young talent in a high performance environment with a great club culture.
Harvey was identified early in his career as a standout player and the Hawks worked with Harvey, and father Stu, to fast track his growth as a footballer through the under age ranks.
Harvey moved up to the Club’s Hawk Squad Development Program in 2016, under the guidance of leading youth coach Craig McKenzie. Harvey played Under 19’s as a 16 year old that year, and quickly showed his talent, strength and maturity. Selection in the Hawk’s senior side soon followed in 2017 although he spent most of 2017 and 2018 with Eastern Ranges in the TAC Cup.
Together with current Eastern Ranges Best and Fairest winner, Mitch Mellis, Harvey is a great example of how Boronia can develop young talent and give them a great opportunity to go through to elite football. Our outstanding coaching panel and fantastic facilities at Tormore Reserve, will bring out the best in young footballers.
