New Hawks boss Jimmy Dack has made his first signings of the Summer as Lucas Rodrigues, Connor Tighe and Lewis Broughton all signed on the dotted line at The Enclosed Ground this afternoon.

Lucas Rodrigues will return to The Hawks for the new season after ending last season at Burgess Hill Town on a dual registration contract where he made a big impact as The Hillians secured safety in the Ryman Premier League. Lucas signed his first Senior contract with The Hawks last Summer after coming through our Under 18 side.

Connor Tighe joins after recently leaving Brighton and Hove Albion, where he came through the ranks as a youngster. He was on loan at The Hawks last season, though injury unfortunately cut short his spell here after just one appearance. Connor also featured on loan last season at Bognor Regis Town, playing a part in their push for promotion to the National League South.

Today’s final signing is 17 year old Defender Lewis Broughton. Lewis has came through our Under 18 side and was a key part of the side which won the League, League Cup and County Cup last season. Lewis was initially signed to a senior contract last season and he will link up with the First Team this Summer.

Along with the new arrivals, we can confirm that the following players have left The Hawks, we thank them for their efforts and wish them the best of luck for the future – Mike West (Chelmsford), Alex Osborn (Hemel Hempstead), Sergio Torres (Eastbourne Borough), Danny Mills (Ebbsfleet) and Ramon Marimon.

Further squad news is expected in the coming weeks. For the latest information, follow us on Twitter (@HawksFCOfficial) or like us on Facebook (WhitehawkFootballClub).
