We want to make a difference to Young People’s lives and our main aim is to be the Most Respected Grassroots Sports Club in the Area. We want to be the number one choice for anyone playing football.


People do not just play for our club they represent it and what it stands for. We believe Better People make the Hawks Better. When you pull on our shirt you are an ambassador for the club. To help us we have our Own “Hawks DNA”, including a website which explains, who we are, how we play and how we coach.


In summary our Values and Beliefs are:


  • SPORTSMANSHIP - Respect and Fair Play.

  • IDENTITY by being seen wearing our badge & Kit

  • FAIRNESS with Equality of Opportunities including Pitch time


  • DEVELOPING BETTER PEOPLE especially Young Leaders

  • HIGH STANDARDS on and off the Pitch

  • RESPECT & POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR from all at the club

  • INTEGRITY in the way we work

  • SIDE BEFORE SELF every time

  • LEGACY – The only thing that changes is the size of the shirt



All Members of the Club, Foundation and its Beneficiaries must respect sports traditional values and make an important contribution to upholding thes club values and the associated Codes of Conduct. Anyone unwilling to do this is at the wromg club.
