A lovely warm, sunny day made nicer because the red team were finally sporting their new kit sponsored by The Fox Pub Hanwell.
Ibrahim Al-Libawi was made captain on his home debut mainly due to the man of the match performance the last time he played when he scored a hat-trick in the cup match v New Hope of the premier division.
Ibrahim had a record of 4 goals in 2 games so far for Hanwell and it only took him 3 minutes to score his 5th goal of the season.
Hanwell Town Red start quick scoring in 2 minutes when George Jacob delivered a perfect cross from his corner kick to the far post where Javern Akinya slotted home the ball with his head.1 minute later Ibrahim beat the White City keeper to the ball to lob it over his head and into the empty goal, 2-0 up in 3minutes against a team at the top end of the table.
White city pulled one back but Hanwell Town were 4-1 up at half time with goals from D'Andre Peters-Ennis who beat 3 players to score and Zakera Khan who turned with the ball on the edge of the box beautifully and passed the ball into the net.
After the break White City hit back with 2 quick goals within 6 minutes of the restart, but on 8 minutes Zakera bounced onto a bad back pass and scored his second of the match which cued his tigger celebration.
With the score now 5-3 the player were looking forward to winning the match but the warm weather took its toll and both sets of players were feeling tired, mistakes were made and White City scored another 2 goals making it 5-5. Both teams kept attacking the ball going end to end at great speed.
Hanwell scored in the 25 minute with Ibrahim the goal machine getting his 6th of the season (his season being only 3 games), 6-5 with 5 minutes to play should have been enough for the 3 points but White City didn't give up and broke Hanwell players and supporters hearts with a last minute equaliser bang on the 30 minutes.
Disappointing but entertaining for the many spectators, well done boys.
Star Players D'andre, Javern, Max, Zak and Ibrahim.
Goal scorers: Zakera 2, Ibrahim 2, Javern, D'Andre
Next week away to Old Actonians Blue.
