CLUB NEWS: Late call-offs hit Hawks

HETHERSETT HAWKS / YELLOW BRICK MORTGAGES were hit by late call-offs for their Division 2 match with Kesgrave so had little chance of victory against the former Division 1 side who tracked a good blend of experienced veterans and top quality youngsters. “B” team rider-manager David Adams tried his hardest to create openings, notably a brilliant 5-5 with young George Later-Dixon who was named rider of the match.

Charlie Lyth was in the thick of the action but it was Paul Delaiche who reeled off four wins after two disappointing rides.
