CLUB NEWS: Age is no barrier for the Hawks

Hethersett Hawks/Myhill Decorators had two riders at different ends of the age spectrum in action at a top level over the weekend.

Glyn Morgan ramped up more road miles to contest this year’s Eurovets series with a trip to South Wales on Saturday. In very wet conditions at Newport Glyn scored 13 points which earned him a place in the B Final where he rode well to finish second. Glyn now stands in fifth place in the Over-50s series.

Owen Wells made his debut for the South-East & Eastern Junior team in their Battle of Britain match with the Midlands at Kesgrave on Sunday. Owen scored six points from his three rides as his side’s inexperience showed against the competition leaders, especially from the starting gates. The SE&E lost 88-51.

Wells was one of two Hethersett winners at the Norfolk Go-Ride Grand Prix at Eaton Park. He took the Under-16 victory with George Larter winning the Under-10s. There were good second places for Giles Awbery (Under-13), Paul Delaiche (Under-16) and new signing Liam Webster (Senior).

Some Hawks travel to East London for a South East Grand Prix on Saturday with the League teams facing tough opposition in key matches at Kesgrave on Sunday.
