HAWKS held a number of events to celebrate their
Golden Jubilee and welcomed back ex-riders for some

such as Dave Martin and Ben Collins. Earlier a junior
event saw age group victories for Dan Knights (Under-19)
Harrison Bacon (Under-16) Giles Awbery (Under-13) Leo
Mallett (Under-10) and Lewis Fierro (Under-8) in his

Hethersett Hawks took on some of
the top riders in Europe and reached the semi-finals of the European Club
Facing top riders in Poland, five
Hawks riders gave a good account of themselves with
eight matches in three days.
It was the first time that Hawks
have ridden as a club outside of the United Kingdom and
they started very much as underdogs against a mixture of
continental sides and top UK teams including Wednesfield,
Ipswich and Birmingham.
Hawks notched a first and second
place in their four qualifying rounds which was good
enough to see them into the quarter-finals where they
were placed third. The action continued as they came
second in a quarter-final reperchage with Dan Chambers
winning a tense race off to see Hawks through to the
semi-finals and then a consolation final, in both of
which they came fourth. It meant that Hawks finished in
eighth place overall.
Club secretary and founder Mel
Perkins, who accompanied the team of Leigh Cossey, Dan
Chambers, Harley Hamill, Dan Butler and Josh Herring
said: “I am so proud of this amazing squad. By the end
the riders were dead on their feet and walking wounded
heroes. It was certainly an amazing weekend.”
