Whitehawk starts off strong in the Isthmian League

Whitehawk is storming into September well after an unbeaten start to the league season.

Victories over Sittingbourne and Littlehampton were followed by a disheartening draw at the Cray Valley Paper Mills on Saturday afternoon, but the Hawks responded impeccably on Bank Holiday Monday as they drove to a 3-0 win over Three Bridges.

A strong start to the season puts Shaun Saunders’ side in second place, two points behind Isthmian League newcomers Beckenham Town.

This season, great emphasis was placed on quick starts; all but one of the eight goals scored came before the break.

In his post-game comments, Saunders emphasized this, saying: “We talked about getting out of the traps quickly and, if we could, putting the game to bed early.

“We started with fire; For the first 25 minutes I thought we were outstanding.

“I am very happy with them. It was a big win.”

It’s been an almost dreamlike start for the former Haywards Heath Town manager who, after being knocked out of the FA Cup by K Sports in the extra preliminary round, has seen his side react superbly.

On a scorching afternoon Monday, 422 flocked to the enclosed compound and were blessed with real potency.

In a first half in which the hosts scored three goals, Joel Daly’s excellent shot from 30 yards set the game beyond reproach as the Hawks avenged their demons from last season’s bizarre duel with The Bridges in a game in which there were five red cards and five red cards a lot of media attention.

Taking a brief break from action, the Hawks return to Tilbury in the FA Trophy with a gamble before returning home the following weekend to host Burgess Hill Town in the league on Saturday 17 September.
