NEWS: Hawks set for local derby season opener

Hethersett Hawks open their Golden Jubilee season with an interesting local derby against Norwich Stars in the South East League. The Hawks hope to have new signing Lee Smith in their first-team squad for the opener at the Memorial Playing Field on Sunday at 2pm.

A total of 22 riders have taken some part in pre-season training over the past eight weeks, so numerically the club looks well placed to contest both Division 1 and Division 2 this season. Sunday’s matches will determine whether the training has paid off to give a quality performance.

Newcomers are more than welcome at the regular Tuesday Club Nights starting at 6.30pm. The first session is free and bikes and equipment are provided.
