With a 12;00 start, Hawks met early at BRN for the trip to Battersea. Battersea Park has 2 communal pitches, parking is where you can find it or pay and display £6.90. Tea is taken in a pub half a mile away, a pint cost £4.75. We are so lucky at Hawks.
Hawks started well and deservedly went one nil up, James Gilbert scored from a well constructed passage of play. Within minutes Wayfarers equalised, a speculative ball into the D bounced off several sticks before rolling over the line, The set back put Hawks on the back foot, Wayfarers scored a second from a short corner. Matt Richardson turned is ankle over, Pickup felt sick, it was all going wrong, Wayfarers added a third.
Hawks had chances and pulled one back from an Ellison short corner, another Hawks short corner cannoned off the bar. It was not to be, Wayfarers scored two further goals for a flattering 5 : 2 win.
The good news, Isca in the league above lost, which means Oxford Hawks with one game to go are guaranteed to stay up. This Saturday Hawks play league leaders Chichester at home it's going to be a cracker.
