He added: "Everyone on the team contributed and I was really happy for the guys. Hawks 3 are Huntingdon's development team and had players as young as 15 in the team, so although the victory is nice, we will play against tougher teams this season".

The team also started the Nene Valley Basketball League last Friday and lost to Huntingdon 1 65-52.
