Many congratulations (if that’s the right word) are due to our chief cook and bottle washer, Stewart Russell, who has reached the remarkable figure of 200 appearances for the Many Shades of Grey.
To mark the achievement, Stew was presented with a duly bedecked Hawks shirt. Bobby and James were on hand to add some glamour to the occasion.
The Many Shades of Grey repeated their success of 2016 by winning the 2018 Hampshire FA Walking Football Club of the Year Award.
So it was on with our Sunday best, despite it being a Saturday, and all off to St. Mary’s stadium to collect the award.

Surely Derek will buy us a trophy cabinet now.
Congratulations also go to Hawks own Henry Deacon who was presented with the Hampshire FA Outstanding Male Leader Award for his work as Media Officer at Westleigh.
Well Done Henry from all the Many Shades.
