CLUB NEWS: Hawks represented at the Euros
Hethersett Hawks/Myhill Decorators had their number one rider, Dan Chambers, competing in the European Championships at Poole in Dorset and he performed very well.
He missed out on qualifying from the Quarter-Final by one point but then came through the repechage event to make the Semi-Final.
This proved to be a very tough competition with a lot of leading Polish contenders. However, he started with well with seven points from his more favourable starting positions but the going got tougher and he could make little impression from the outside starting positions.
His tally of 10 points was not enough to make the final.
Meanwhile the Hawks had two representatives in the Ireland team for the European Nations Cup which Poland won narrowly from England.
Ireland finished fourth with Hethersett skipper, Leigh Cossey, scoring seven points and Dan Butler scoring eight. Cossey appeared to be harshly excluded in a collision challenging for a second place.
The internationals will be back with the Hawks on Sunday 14th when they visit high-flying Ipswich Eagles.
