Enter the Hawks Nest as we head onto our maiden National League voyage!!
Basking in the sun, Hawks boss Lee Bradbury is looking ahead to tomorrow’s big National League south clash as the Hawks face the clarets of Chelmsford City. Having won their last 5 matches, Chelmsford will provide stiff opposition for Lee Bradbury’s outfit who have won 7 in their last 10.
“It’s a massive game for us and them.” He said, as he looked, relaxed looking at the pitch at Westleigh Park. “They want to stay in really good form, winning their last 5. We’ve got to try and win every game because I think Dartford will win their next two but saying that they have a tough game against Bath tomorrow but we just have to go for it and try and win every game and see what happens”.
It was destined when the fixtures came out all the way back in July that something would ride on this game against Chelmsford and it certainly doesn’t get much bigger than this. “They were favourites to win the league at the start of the season and they’ve hit a good bit of form at the right time and coming into this game very confident and with a big crowd up there tomorrow and fingers crossed we can get some people up to get behind the Hawks.”
“They’re an experienced team and have players that can change games and because of that I think it will be a tight affair and one that I’m looking forward to. These are the games as a player you want to be involved in and I think it is a nice pressure to have because really there is no pressure on us so let’s just for it and see what happens.”
Going back to Wednesday Night, the gaffer was delighted with the club’s second Hampshire Senior Cup title and was particularly impressed with the fringe players coming in. “I was pleased to get some of the players minutes who haven’t played recently and keeps them topped up nicely in case their needed in the next week and with some good performances some food for thought for me.”
Hawks head to Melbourne Park in weather befitting of it’s name. The Barmy weather and an end of season thriller which has all the ingredients.
