On Saturday 19th December our U14’s Hawks celebrated scoring their 1,000th goal in an organized game of football.
Scored in the 16th min of a 9-2 victory against Steyning, the 2nd goal of the game was the 1,000th goal the team have scored in a competitive game (Excluding tournaments) since their inception 197 games ago back in March 2014.
“I knew this milestone goal was likely to come in this game”, said the U14 Hawks Manager, “But I made very little of it before the game as I didn’t want the accolade of being it’s scorer to affect how the players performed. But I’m delighted that it was scored by who it was, he’s one of the hardest working members of the team and thoroughly deserves it. It’s taken us 6 years to score 1,000 goals but the way we’re playing at the moment I reckon there’s still another 1,000 goals left to go”.
Hassocks U14 Hawks currently play in the U14’s 1st Division of the HDYFL and are one of 22 teams across the club from ages 5 to 16.
