Honiton Hawks (Under-9s) travelled to Taunton on Sunday morning to take part in a festival meeting.

The Hawks had a squad of eight players on duty - Elliot Arscott, Harry Haysom, Kyle Moore, Liam Webber, Logan Symons, Miles Salter, Taylor Prettejohn and Will Parris.

It was an opportunity for the boys to play against teams from Somerset that they wouldn’t normally have fixtures with on a regular Sunday.

In all, the Hawks played six games of 10 minutes each against their counterparts - The Hornets Gold from Weston-super-Mare, Castle Cary, Taunton Raiders, Winscombe, Tor Tigers and the Hornets Black team.

The boys put in a great effort in each of their games, which resulted in them remaining unbeaten throughout the day with four wins and two draws.

The Hawks ‘Best Effort’ award went to Elliot Arscott, who has shown great promise and enthusiasm in the short time since he joined the Hawks and is already a valuable member of the squad.
