The people that make the Hawks fly
- Club Captain / Coach
Dix has been a player for every team at the Hawks (apart from the kids and women team) and still tries to play in every team if he can! He’s a prolific scorer (still) and a dependable member of the club. Been a Hawks player since… since he had long hair! Colin is a senior committee member and the AA8 Player/Coach.
- Head Coach/General Manager
Joining the Hawks in 2001 as a player, part of the double winning 2003 squad and captaining the League winning 2005 team – moved on to player/coach in 2007 for the O35s team and taking on a more ‘boardroom’ role in helping run the club since then. Coaches all Mens teams and focuses on the AA4s on game day. Can be frequently seen putting cones down.
- Equipment Manager
Perhaps the Hawks’ most valuable asset. Pino has been with the club for years, taking care of all things football whether it’s playing in a wide array of positions; coaching, reffing, putting up the nets or flags, setting up training, taking training, washing the bibs not to mention looking after all the equipment at home and bringing it to where it’s needed in his trademark orange TNT van. Known for his unbelievably large calf muscles.
- Seniors Secretary
The Kiwi Hawk – joined as a player in 2014 – took on the valued role of Secretary in 2015. His calm nature and astute negotiating skills assist Mark in this role. A tireless worker both on and off the pitch. He plays his football in the AA8 team.
- Seniors Registrar
Stubbsy – joined as a player in 2013 Season – turning up to his first training session in his now famous Inter Milan shirt – he quickly cemented himself into Heffron Hawks folklore. Not for his playing ability but his ability to be the brunt of everyone’s ‘transfer window moves’ rumours in the off season. A great battler on the pitch and a dependable member of the club off it. He now spends most of his hours in the MyFootball website or at the ESFA offices.
Accountant by day – tenacious tackler on Sundays – and the Hawks ‘money-man’. A well-liked member of the Hawks, Dan takes the Treasury role from 2016, looking after the Hawk’s bottom line.
- Sponsorship Manager
A goal scoring forward for the Women’s team – after playing at ‘another club who play in red’ for a few years, left to create a more autonomous and harmonious team with a few friends. Starting with the Hawks in a Div2 team, Bec has returned from ‘maternity leave’ and plays in the now AAW3 team – as well as scoring goals… Bec looks after our valued sponsors and potential sponsors.
