Welcome to the Manchester Hawks Hall of Fame!

Here we will acknowledge members who have made an outstanding contribution to the club over the years – on and off the court.

There will be 10 inductees – one to celebrate each year of Hawks!

Amy Adlard: A Hawk from day 1, and one of only 2 players to have featured in every Hawks season! She’s spent most of the last decade on the committee, tackling the Chair role and creating this lovely website. On Court, she’s played over 120 games for Hawks and scored a stack of goals over the course of a decade in the first team. Truly the definitive Hawk! Currently the North West Korfball president.
Steve Doyle: A Hawks 1 mainstay for 6 seasons and still the 2nd highest all time scorer! Steve was coach, 1sts captain and tournament sec during his Hawks career. He was also part of the group that kept the club going during a tough patch around 2015 when lots of regulars moved away, laying the foundations for the Hawks success story that you see today! Steve’s first game for Hawks was actually as a guest – he was part of another club and was only meant to be reffing! It was a true love story, and he became a full time Hawk soon after! 
Harriet Derrick: Another Hawks 1 staple from the early years! Harriet was part of the very first Hawks season and was instrumental in the team’s back to back promotions. A nails defender who scored some crucial goals, she went on to be club secretary and a successful Hawks 1 captain. She was also always a helpful and friendly face for new and old members. After a spell abroad she’s currently korfing it up in Edinburgh with Mavericks! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thom Partridge: Another Hawk who was there from the very beginning. Thom was a Hawks 1 mainstay from day 1 until 2017, and is still the 3rd highest all-time scorer for the firsts! His committee roles at the club included Chair, Secretary and Captain, and he was a key part of the 2011-13 team that won back-to-back promotions. He’s still got the korf bug, and is currently banging in the goals down in Norfolk.
Anne-Marie Lyons: The life and soul of the club during her 7 year spell as a Hawk. She was a 1st team regular for years; solid in defence, a scorer of big long shots, and the loudest “party” shouter in the business! Maz’s committee roles included secretary and social sec, and she was always a friendly face for any newcomers at training. Off court, she still comes down to the occasional social and can often be seen twirling people around the dance floor! 
Taj Uddin: One of only 2 players to have appeared in every season for Hawks! He’s played for every Hawks team, and he’s always a threat with that mean shot of his. Our resident social media rascal, he’s also a notorious bad boy: he’s the only Hawk to ever have received a yellow card! It wasn’t really his fault, but he’s certainly a competitive character on court… Taj only graces us with his presence a few times a year nowadays, but he dusted off his pink lycra to play a crucial part in our rounders league win last year.
