Hawkenbury FC are your treble winners for 2024

As a Club, they celebrated their first Premier Division title and Craske and Wells trophy in the Sevenoaks League in their 107 year history. They always played in the Tonbridge Football League until it folded, and they lost only one league game all season, to local rivals Southborough, having beaten them once in the league and knocked them out the cup.

Hawkenbury got knocked out of the Kent Cup and the Sevenoaks Senior Charities cup by Kent County League opposition, their only other two defeats all year.

In a strange twist of fate, the night they won the treble (April 30th 2024), beating St Lawrence 4-2 aet with their captain, George Gill scoring a hattrick to win, it was exactly 15 years to the day, that Hawkenbury won their last treble, winning the Tonbridge Premier Division, the Presidents Trophy and the Tunbridge Wells Charities Senior Cup.

They were completely different cups, a different league, and different players, but the same manager, Pete Manktelow.
