Dramatic win as Hawks leave it late
Saturday, August 18, 2018
THE Hawks seized their first National League win in remarkable fashion, beating Braintree Town 4-3 at Cressing Road.
The visitors looked dead and buried when they trailed 3-2 deep into stoppage-time. Then Nicke Kabamba and substitute Alfie Rutherford struck to earn the Hawks an unlikely win. Rory Williams scored after two minutes and Jordan Rose equalised before the break, after the hosts hit back with two goals. Though falling behind again on 71 minutes, Lee Bradbury’s side refused to give up and were rewarded at the death. The visitors made a dream start by taking the lead after only two minutes. Williams intercepted a poor pass midway inside the Braintree half and combined well with Kabamba. WILLIAMS burst into the area and hammered a powerful angled shot into the roof of the net.

Good first home result
Tuesday, August 7, 2018
Lee Bradbury’s team played the better attacking football and had the best chances but couldn’t crown their first home match at this level with three points. The rainbow over Westleigh Park just before kick-off had not quite signalled riches to come but there was still plenty for the Hawks manager to be happy with. They came very close with Paul Robinson, Wes Fogden, Nicke Kabamba and Andreas Robinson all just unable to bulge the net.
