More goals than players

It was one of those weekends when you wish you could bury the bad news in the good news.

With only the two senior teams playing, the Saturday side played Fountain in the league but were unable to field a full team and started the match with just nine players.

After sizing up the much depleted side, Fountain pounced on their prey showing them no mercy as goal after goal went into the back of the Hawkinge net.

Who knows but for the brave efforts of the goalie it could have been much higher.

In contrast the Sunday team were playing away to Nailbox in the quarter finals of the E.Burvill Cup.

The game was neck and neck with a score of one each up to the last 15 minutes, but a goal from Tom Whelam put the Hawkinge side ahead and although Nailbox fought back, it was the visitors who scored again, putting the quarter final nailbox into the coffin.
