Presentation Evening

HETHERSETT HAWKS staged their annual Presentation Evening at Hethersett Social Club and 30 members and families heard about a reasonably successful season with the first team challenging for the South-East title right to the last match and the "B" team having a much more competitive season. Quite a few new recruits have been attracted, mainly from the Attleborough area, and the Club staged four National and Regional events at its track in 2015. 

Four Norfolk champions were celebrated as well as winners of the club's eight championships.  Leigh Cossey was awarded the prestigious honour of Sportsperson of the Year voted for by those present on the night and he also received the Secretary's award for Club Member of the Year for his captaining of the first team and his support and encouragement to younger members at Club Nights.

Other awards went to Lee Grange (Top Scorer), Adam Reeve (Best Newcomer), Leo Mallett (Most Improved Junior), Dan Chambers (1st team Rider of the Year) and Owen Wells (B team Rider of the Year).

The Club are now eagerly looking forward to the 2016 season when they celebrate their Golden Jubilee.

East Anglian Championships

HETHERSETT HAWKS / SWINTON & CO brought down the curtain on the 2015 season at the Memorial Playing Field when they staged the East Anglian Championships.  There were some excellent performances from Hethersett riders but all the titles were captured by riders from over the Suffolk border.  Dan Chambers came the closest to a title as he contested a race-off for second place after both he and Ipswich's Ash Hill had scored 14 points.  A first-bend collision from which Chambers seemed to come out best was brought back to the start and Hill made no mistake in the rerun to consign the Hethersett rider to a creditable third place on the podium. Others to impress were Leo Mallet (fourth in the Under-10s), Danel Longlands (sixth in the Undere-13s) and Owen Wells (fourth in the Under-16s). 

The new champions are Archie Foote (Kesgrave - Under-10s) Lewis Brinkhoff (Kesgrave - Under-13s) Ben Harvey (Ipswich - Under-16s) Matt Hill (Ipswich - Under-19s) and Josh Brooke (Ipswich - Seniors).

After a successful season the Hawks can now look forward to their Golden Jubilee celebrations in 2016.  However, a priority this winter will be to secure a new sponsor as their grateful 11-year support from Swinton & Co has come to an end.

Go Ride Status Achieved

 

The Hawks have finally been granted the coveted GO-RIDE status by British Cycling. We have been trying for over two years to put everything in place to get this “kite-mark” which confirms we are a well-run and structured club with all policies in place.  

 

The application has been led by Dave Chambers with help from Ian Grange,  Well done – now we can go for the next level of CLUBMARK!
