HETHERSETT HAWKS / MYHILL DECORATORS staged the Norfolk Championships at the Memorial Playing Field and two Hethersett riders were crowned Norfolk Champions - George Larter-Dixon  in the Under-10s and Owen Wells (Under-16s and Under-19s).  There were also podium places for Giles Awbery and George Larter-Dixon in the Under-13s and Glyn Morgan in the Seniors and Veterans.  Paddy Wenn from Norwich successfully defended his Senior and Veterans titles as did his Club colleague Scott Colby in the Under-13s.  A new Ladies Champion was celebrated in Tabitha Nierop from Norwich.

HAWKS entertained reigning South East champions Ipswich Whirlwinds and came out on top in a match between two under-strength teams. Indeed the Whirlwinds had to race with a rider short and that proved their undoing as the Hawks rode sensibly to capitalise on any weaknesses. Heat 3 gave Hethersett the lead when Harley Hamill
and Leigh Cossey engineered a 6-3 win over top Ipswich star Josh Brooke. A mistake just before the interval gave Ipswich an opening so they only trailed by four points.Cossey was again on hand to manoeuvre Scott Grimes into a 7-3 win over Jamie Chittock in heat 13 which virtually sealed victory. Ben Harvey kept the visitors' hopes alive by a superb pass on Olly Buxton and the match was rounded off with a popular win by Glyn Morgan, making his first-team return after over 30 years.
