Saturday 5 January 2019 – Haringey Borough v Whitehawk
The Hawks will be travelling to White Hart Lane, no not the Tottenham Hotspur stadium itself, but to Coles Park Stadium which is just a stones throw from the Spurs building site. Haringey – currently sit top of the Bostik League, riding a 13 game unbeaten run (including 11 consecutive wins) – visited the Hawks in September on ‘Non League 4 Grenfell’ day, coming out 3-1 winners courtesy of a Joel Nouble hat-trick which included 2 late first half penalties.

Tuesday 8 January 2019 – Whitehawk v Worthing
This highly anticipated derby game was originally scheduled for November, then late December, then late January, but has finally settled on January 8th. The Rebels, who ended a run of 3 straight defeats with a comfortable 2-0 win over Corinthian-Casuals in the Xmas break, currently sit 7th, but have at least 2 games on hand on the rest of the league. The Hawks will travel to Woodside Road in March for the return fixture.

Saturday 12 January 2019 – Whitehawk v Dorking Wanderers
The Wanderers head to the coast in a mixed run of form, but are second in the league. Captained by former Hawk, Sami El-Abd, Dorking boast the meanest defence in the league, conceding 3 fewer than the next best. The Hawks went down 2-1 at Meadowbank earlier in the season. Before visiting the Hawks, Dorking will head to Hornchurch.

Saturday 19 January 2019 – Kingstonian v Whitehawk
If facing the top 2 sides in the league isn’t enough for one month, we travel to 3rd place Kingstonian, to a venue we visited back in October, as Kingstonian currently ground share with Corinthian-Casuals having been homeless for the past few seasons. Kingstonian have lost just 1 of their last 8 games, that coming against high flying Haringey. The K’s left Whitehawk in September with a point, after Reece Hallard scored a late equaliser for the Hawks.

Tuesday 22 January 2019 – Whitehawk v Burgess Hill Town
Another local derby that’s been subject to multiple date changes, the original fixture was 30 minutes in when the referee sanctioned the pitch unplayable and called the game off, with the game sitting 1 a piece. The Hillians currently occupy a relegation place, and own the second leakiest defensive record. The Hawks took all 3 points from Leylands Park back in September coming away with a 4-2 win. Since then the Hillians have changed management, and currently are on a 3 game winning run (including victories of promotion chasing Sussex sides Lewes and Worthing).

Saturday 26 January 2019 – Whitehawk v Carshalton Athletic
The Hawks close out a busy January, in which we play 7 times (5 at home), with the visit of Carshalton. The Robins won the reverse fixture 2-0, on the back of a 5 game winning run, which has come to an abrupt halt, with 4 losses in the last 5. Mid table Carshalton face a fresher new year challenge as they only play 4 times in January.
