When the 2019-20 season was suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic Havant &Waterlooville were second in the league, three points behind Wealdstone as they attempted to return to the Conference National at the first attempt.

The Hawks were formed in 1998 when Havant Town merged with Waterlooville. Both clubs had competed in the Southern League and the new club moved in to Havant’s Leigh Park stadium.

The new club won the Southern League Southern Division at the first attempt, beating Margate to the title by 5 points.

In 2000-01 The Hawks made their first appearance in the First Round of the F.A. Cup, losing to Southport 2-1 at Westleigh Park. They finished the season in third place.

They met Billericay Town for the first time in October 2001 when the two clubs were drawn to meet each other in the Fourth Qualifying Round of the F.A. Cup in Hampshire. The hosts won the match 3-1 and were drawn away to Dagenham & Redbridge in the First Round. The East Londoners won the match 3-2.

The following month The Blues travelled to Westleigh Park again, leaving with a 1-1 draw in the F.A. Trophy Second Round. Russell Penn scored for Town three days later as The Hawks won 2-1, after extra time.

Sutton United were beaten 3-1 in an away win to move in to the Fourth Round, where Colwyn Bay were then defeat 2-0. Hayes came to Hampshire in the Fifth Round and went home having beaten 3-0 and then a 2-1 away win at Forest Green Rovers in the Quarter-Finals set-up a two-legged Semi-Final against Tamworth.

Tamworth won 2-1 on aggregate but lost to Burscough in the Final.

A twelfth-place finish in 2003-04 was enough for a place in the newly created Conference South.

In 2006 they beat Brackley Town to reach the F.A. Cup First Round. The Hawks were drawn at home against League One Millwall. The match was played at Fratton Park in front of a crowd of 5,793 as the Londoners won the match 2-1.

During the 2007-08 season the club went on their most impressive F.A. Cup run to date. A 2-1 away win at Bognor Regis Town took them in to the Third Qualifying Round and a 2-1 home win against Fleet Town.

They then beat Leighton Town 3-0 at Westleigh Park took them in to the First Round and an away fixture at Conference National York City. Havant began their Giant Killing run with a 1-0 win.

In the Second Round another away draw took them to Nottinghamshire and the home of the oldest professional football club in the World – Notts County. The Football League side were beaten 1-0 to take the scalp of another higher ranked club.

They were rewarded with another away draw in the Third Round. The Hawks made the journey in to Wales where they played Swansea City, then competing in League One. The match ended as a 1-1 draw and a home match with the promotion chasing Swans in the replay.

Havant raised their game again, beating City 4-2 to reach the Fourth Round. A ground record of 4,400 fans watched the match that night.

In the Fourth Round Havant were given a dream draw, taking them to Anfield to face Liverpool.

That afternoon The Hawks went ahead twice with The Reds drawing level and eventually winning the match 5-2. In Havant’s team that day was Alfie Potter, who was on loan from Peterborough United. He was voted as ‘Player of the Round’ for his performance.

The following season they reached the First Round again, this time losing 3-1 at home to Brentford.

A run in the F.A. Trophy got them to the Quarter-Finals in 2009 beating Crawley Town on the way before losing at York City.

In 2010 Droylsden won a F.A. Cup First Round match 2-0 at Westleigh Park.

During the 2013-14 season wins against Ebbsfleet United and Aldershot Town got them to the Semi-Final of the F.A. Trophy. They were drawn in a two-legged Semi-Final against Hampshire neighbours Gosport Borough. The home leg ended 1-1 but Borough won the second leg 2-0 to progress to the Final, where they lost 4-0.

The following season another run to the First Round of the F.A. Cup ended with a home defeat at the hands of Preston North End.

The season ended with a fifth-place finish took them in to the play-offs as they pushed for promotion. A two-legged Semi-Final began with a 2-0 defeat at home to Boreham Wood and then a 2-2 draw in Hertfordshire.

A year later and Havant were relegated in to the Isthmian League. Another year later and they were celebrating again. The Hawks won the Isthmian League title, beating Bognor Regis by two points.

Another year on and the 2017-18 season ended with the Conference South title and The Hawks were promoted in to the National League Premier Division for the first time. The stay lasted only one season as they finished 23rd.

Last season The Blues and The Hawks only met once before the season came to a halt. Despite Town keeping one eye over their shoulders at the relegation zone they maintained an unbeaten home record until Havant & Waterlooville visited New Lodge on 30 November 2019. Havant won 1-0.

Lining up against Town that evening was former Blues defender Craig Robson. Amongst Havant’s coaching staff was Simon Walton, another ex- Billericay player. Billy Clifford has since joined The Hawks.

LIVE STREAM

A streaming platform has been setup by the club as a facility for our fans until we can have them back into the stadium.

The price for a single match streaming pass will be £8.49, with confirmed season ticket holders gaining FREE access to every game. With the streaming services many clubs are going with, a large percentage of revenue goes to the service provider. We have managed to create something quickly to ensure that our club retains the money from streaming pass revenue. On the club website there will be a section for Live Streaming on the navigation bar at the top of the page.

SEASON TICKET HOLDERS

Obviously, Season ticket holders bought their tickets on the basis that they would be able to attend home games. The club have recently issued a number of options for fans to choose from given the current restrictions. For those who confirm their wish to retain their season tickets, the code on the front of your season ticket e.g. (RIC000123) is the access code you can use to enter on the streaming page of the website and be able to watch the latest match straight away. IMPORTANT – If multiple season tickets were ORDERED under the same name, they will have the same ‘RIC’ code. In this case you will need to put ‘-1, -2, -3’ (RIC000123-1) at the end of your ‘RIC’ code depending on how many were ordered under your name. As you can only use one code at any one time this will enable each family member to watch the stream independently if they wish.

If you are still yet to receive or collect your season ticket then please contact the club so we can give you your ‘RIC’ code/s

If you do log in early on a match day, and access the stream page, do not worry if there does not appear to be anything there. This will be because we will not have gone live at that point. We aim to be live from 15mins before KO for each home game.

NON-SEASON TICKET HOLDERS

As stated previously, the price for a single match streaming pass is £8.49. After clicking onto the Live Streaming page, you will be presented with 3 options:

  • Login (as ST holder)
  • Buy Match
  • Enter access code

Once the single match pass has been bought, you can use the order reference number in the confirmation email that you can then enter into the box to get straight into the stream. Once entered in, you will be taken into the stream page, if there does not appear to be anything there, it is likely that we haven’t gone live yet. We aim to be live from 15mins before KO for each home game.
