The football season is here again and the Hawkinge Youth have two teams playing Mini soccer this coming season, an under 10 team and a team of under 8's.

It was the under 8 team that kicked off the season on Saturday (29 July) playing a friendly against Snowdown and Aylesham at home.

Both sides were newly formed so it was not a game for harsh judgements on the result.

The away team quickly got their first goal, followed by an equalizer from Hawkinge's  Jamie Smith.

Before half-time Snowdown and Aylesham had scored a second but the Hawkinge youngsters managed to top this by putting away 3 more, scored by Alex Lawson, Liam Jelley and another by Jamie Smith.

But in the second half it all fell apart for the Hawkinge side as the visitors, being quicker on the ball put another 6 into the Hawkinge goal with the village side unable to respond.

Final score
Hawkinge 4 , Snowdown and Aylesham 8
