The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Ant Scott

WHITEHAWK and Glouces­ter City played out a life­less draw.

The hosts had taken the lead early on through Gold Omo­tayo, only for Joe Parker to can­cel out the striker’s ef­fort be­fore the break.

“It was a game that won’t be re­mem­bered for long,” con­fessed Hawks boss Steve King.

“It was tough con­di­tions with the wind and as a re­sult shots were few and far be­tween. A draw was prob­a­bly the right re­sult.”

Whitehawk took an early lead as Omo­tayo broke clear af­ter beat­ing a de­fender, be­fore cut­ting in­side from the right and driv­ing low into the far cor­ner.

The vis­it­ing Tigers looked to get back into the game as Chris Knowles headed just wide from an Ed Wil­liams cor­ner be­fore they drew level on 16 min­utes.

Parker man­aged to run onto a ball in be­hind and af­ter beat­ing the de­fence for pace steered his shot low past Hawks stop­per Daniel Wilks and into the far cor­ner.

Rhys Ka­vanagh pro­vided a good out­let for the vis­i­tors, with the winger us­ing his pace well to get through on goal only to be de­nied by Wilks.

Nas­sim L’Ghoul had the best chance for Whitehawk, but he saw his drive turned around by the post by Ex­eter City loa­nee James Ha­mon.

STAR MAN: David Ijaha (Whitehawk) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
