DISS HAWKS U10 played away to Surlingham Tornadoes and soon found themselves 5-0 down with Surlingham in control of the game. In the second half the Hawks pushed forward from Nathan Faulkner in defence to Theo Sloos and Sam King in midfield and tried to turn the game around with a fantastic goal off Jacob Ready from a corner. Then came shots from Nathan Faulkner, Nathan Channell and Theo Sloos but they couldn’t beat Surlingham’s keeper.
