It was an opportunity for 2 sides providing a platform for development to test each other in trying conditions. Although Storm Abigail threw everything at the players and supporters the Hawks team showed their mettle and secured a deserved 2-0 win.
Mike Henman provided the goals but the midfield of Fogden, Smith and Black jnr provided the platform for a deserved victory. With tireless running by Whitey, Smith and Chambers up front the Reading were on the back foot.
Ollie and Roger Dunn provided the solid back line with George Aylard between the sticks provided confidence and assurance.
A good win and the warm atmosphere in the club house capped the excellent afternoon.
