England Hockey Awards 2019

Despite not coming home with the prize for ‘Ladies team of the Year’ it was an absolutely fabulous night and we would like to thank England Hockey for all their efforts.

It was brilliant to be in a room surrounded by so many inspirational people who love the sport from grass roots level up to the international players who joined in the fun and really helped make everyone feel part of the hockey family.

A big thank you to Ian Sloan, England and GB player who sat on our table for the evening and made us feel very welcome, it was extremely interesting to get the views of a player playing at the highest level of the game.

I think everyone who went would like to go back again next year whether or not we get nominated and we hope next time to take many more along to this fantastic event.

Below are a few of the pictures from the evening with lots of international players.

Ladies 1s have been shortlisted for the Team of the Year Women Award at the 2019 England Hockey Awards

It is with great pride that we announce that our ladies 1s have been shortlisted for the Team of the Year Women Award at the 2019 England Hockey Awards Dinner on Saturday 11th May 2019.

 

Although the ladies 1s have been nominated this couldn’t have happened without the support of all the clubs members, volunteers and officials who work to support the running of the club.

 

The ladies 1s have been promoted this season and will play in Cheshire Division 2 in 19/20 season. This has largely resulted from the strength and depth that the club now has from the Academy through to the Men’s and Ladies senior sections.

 

The ladies 1s are made up of a combination of players who have played for the club, come through the Academy and those who have joined the club based on its growing reputation. Players from the team are representing both County and Regional teams as well as school sides in the surrounding area.

 

The team have been supported by a number of players coming through the ladies 2s and 3s which will give the club strength over the coming years.

 

I hope you will all join us in celebrating this success and wish the ladies all the best on their big evening.
