Hawkes is glad to have Cheek back at Heybridge Swifts
3:45pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in Local Sport
PROLIFIC striker Michael Cheek is back at Heybridge Swifts.
The front man moved to Chelmsford City earlier in the summer, keen to prove himself at Skrill South level after plundering 25 goals last season.
He played for the Clarets during their friendlies but rejoined Ryman League division one north outfit Swifts on Friday night.
He did not play at the weekend but was part of the travelling squad that won 3-1 at Dereham.
“Michael signed for us at the start of the close season but then went to Chelmsford with our blessing,” said Hawkes.
“For whatever reason, it hasn’t worked out for him and it probably knocked him back a bit.
“But Chelmsford’s loss is our gain and now he’s fully focused on Heybridge Swifts.
“He hasn’t trained with us during pre-season, so may take two or three weeks to get back to full fitness.
“But when he’s fit and firing, we’ll reap the benefits.
“He’s the kind of player who makes things happen.”
Swifts host Needham Market on Saturday and then go to Ware next Tuesday.
