This Sunday, Hornets FC take on old rivals Falcons in their second pre-season friendly of the season.
The rivalry with Falcons, dropping the Anchor from their name like a 1980s pop star, dates back to 2006 with the sides fairly even in the wins columns. Whilst Falcons used to consistently defeat Hornets, by 2009 Hornets went on a bit of a winning streak themselves until October 2012 when Falcons beat HFC three goals to one.
Overall, HFC just edge the battle with eight victories to Falcons seven, with only two draws between the clubs in their history. This Sunday marks the first of a minimum of three fixtures this season as Falcons are back in Division 2 with Hornets.
Who will come out on top this Sunday? Have the tables turned and are Falcons due another winning streak or will the Hornets dust themselves down and come back on top? You can find out by being there – this Sunday – 12:15 at Martley Sports Center.
