All three Hawkinge soccer sides were in action this weekend with the Saturday team playing at home against Ruckinge in the  league.

Hawkinge were 2 1 up at half time but Ruckinge moved up a gear in the second half and added another three goals to their tally.

The Sunday senior side played Essembee in the 3rd round of the FA Sunday cup competition.

This was a good match to watch with both sides having a fair run of the play and each side scoring 2 goals at full time. Extra time was played with both sides trying for that goal that would prevent a replay, and it was Hawkinge that came up with goods off the boot of Eamonn Elalem when he drove home the final goal of the game.

The U15 team were at home to Herne Bay Harriers, the team who beat them when they played on their ground two weeks ago.

But this time it was the Hawkinge youngsters who wanted that win more, and the pressure they put on the visitors paid off with and early goal  and another before half time.

The Harriers clawed one back in the second session, but the Hawkinge boys stood firm and held onto their one goal lead after some narrow misses by both sides.

So it was a ho! ho! ho!  for the youngsters as they registered their first win of the season.
