PREVIEW: Hawks face tough opening encounter

Hethersett Hawks/Swinton & Co open their 2015 season this Sunday with a tough away fixture in the South East League at Great Blakenham in Suffolk.

The home team boast three Elite League stars in their squad and with the Hawks having had little opportunity to practice, it is a daunting task on the long, fast track. Manager Lee Grange is hopeful that most of his 2014 squad will be available topped up by winter signing Jason Barker from Norwich Stars.

This is the first match of an exciting season, which sees two big events coming to the Hethersett Memorial Playing Field track – a British Women & Girls League fixture in May and a British Youth & Junior League National Round in July.
