Mick Stapley Memorial Cup 

Hawkinge 9 v Sellinge 0

By Cyril Trice 

This was the match that Hawkinge needed to prove they could score goals, and they didn't let the fans down.

Sellinge were in for a drubbing from the village team in this one sided cup tie.

Hawkinge had the bit between their teeth and were out to prove that they could put the ball in the net and did so time after time.

Eamon Elalam opened the scoring after 10 minutes and followed it up with a goal from the penalty spot after a deliberate hand ball which saw the Sellinge player sent off.

With the away team down to 10 men it was now plain sailing for Hawkinge.

David Chilvers started the rout by scoring for Hawkinge 5 minutes into the second half, followed by Matt Hughes, James Cross, Tom Whelan and a second one from Matt Hughes who was having a much better game.

To add to their woes Sellinge conceded an own goal when Adam Lemar put his name to the score sheet shortly before the referee blew his whistle on this one sided game.

Hawkinge now proceed to the next round of the Mick Stapley Memorial Cup.
