NEW YEAR KICKS OFF TO A BAD START 

Swingfield 1 Hawkinge 0

Hawkinge were looking for a better start to the year than this lacklustre performance against Swingfield.

The result could have been so different if the village team had been able to keep their cool. They failed to capitalise on chances in front of what seemed at times to be an open goal.

After a goalless first half it was Swingfield who put the only goal of the match  into the back of the net in the 65th minute.

Hawkinge fought on and although having much of the play failed to find the equaliser. 

After 90 minutes, it was left to the referee to blow the whistle and call a halt to this extremely frustrating game.
