2014 Christmas Party and Presentation Evening Photographs From The Final

HETHERSETT HAWKS / SWINTON and CO celebrated another successful season at Hethersett Social Club when members and families attended the Club's presentation evening.  As well as acknowledging trophies won during the season, notably runners-up in South-East League Division 1, the Club made a number of special awards.

Oliver Riley was announced as Top Scorer while the Club Committee selected Daniel Longlands as Best Newcomer and Beth Allen as Most Improved Junior. Secretary Mel Perkins selected Phil Awbery as his Club Member of the Year and the three Team Managers nominated their Riders of the Year - 1st team Nick Myhill, 2nd team Katie Adams and Youth team Giles Awbery.

The final award was voted for by the members and committee on the night and the Club's prestigious Sports Person of the Year award went to Katie Adams.

Plans are already in hand for the 2015 season which will begin in March.

Hawks and Peelers Special Evening More Information

The Peelers Velo Club (Norfolk Police) sent a squad of 11 members and one son for a "come and try" session at the Hethersett track on a damp Monday evening.  After a demo and some practice they entered into a 12-rider Grand Prix competition. The "A" Final was won by former rider Scott Shorten who raced for North Park Norwich in their Southern Counties League days. He was closely followed by Pete, a local triathlete. Kevin Thompson, who co-ordinated the Velo Club visit, took a tumble contesting the Final.  The evening ended with a 7-aside relay race which was declared a dead-heat.  The visitors really enjoyed their evening and vowed to return next year.

Interestingly one of the visitors measured using 550 calories in the hour he was there, apparently compares favourably with doing one-hour on the road averaging 15 mph.

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!
