Newbury and Thatcham 5 Oxford Hawks 7ths 1
Hawks took a pure development side to Newbury and faced a team containing some good players. It looked like the game would be a tough contest and so it proved.
Credit to the opposition who looked strong in key areas and took the game immediately to Hawks.
The first half finished at 3-0 but apart from a 5 minute spell Hawks were giving a great account of them selves. Johnny Fox and Ollie Dunn were competing for man of the match, and Johnny snuck the award at the end.
2 more goals in the 2nd half with a well struck short corner from Simon Dawson left the score at 5-1 but the game showed the character and mettle of the development players and they should all be proud of themselves, Just a good game to take part in and the opposition contributed to a hard fought contest with great spirit on both sides.
