Three more members of The Hawks’ U18 Treble winning team have signed senior contracts as Defensive trio Robbie Keith, Fintan Walsh and Captain Luke Emberson will link up with the First Team for the 17/18 season.
Robbie joined our U18 side at the beginning of last season after previously playing for Eastbourne Town U18s. In his first season at The Enclosed Ground, Robbie performed solidly each week on the way to winning the treble.
Fintan joined our U18 side last season whilst being dual signed with Bognor Regis Town, though now he is solely signed up with The Hawks, though he will still remain eligible to feature for our U18s. Walsh is also an England International after being selected to be a part of the England College’s FA side earlier in 2017. Fintan was also dual signed with local side Lancing FC last season in order to gain senior level experience.
Luke joined our U18 side in 2015 and was made Captain ahead of the 16/17 season, leading the talented side to an unprecedented League, League Cup and County Cup treble, as well as being a major part in the U18’s defence, showing great composure and calmness under pressure at all times.
We wish them all the best of luck as they join up with Jimmy Dack and the First Team!
