Hawkes more than satisfied with start
2:29pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in Sport
HEYBRIDGE Swifts manager Mark Hawkes says he could hardly ask for more from his side’s flying start to the new Ryman League season.
The Scraley Road side are still unbeaten – having won three and drawn three – following Monday’s stalemate against rivals Maldon and Tiptree.
They have one more game left in August – Saturday’s FA Cup preliminary round trip to Basildon United.
But they will definitely be unbeaten in division one north heading into their first match next month, at Cheshunt on September 7.
“We haven’t lost a game yet and it would be hard to ask for more,” said an upbeat Hawkes.
“Going on long unbeaten runs is great for morale and good for the players.
“There have been lots of positives so far and I said at 2pm on Saturday that four points out of six would be a good return from our Bank Holiday weekend.
“I’d have liked it to be six points, but four is what we got and an excellent return.”
