Adult Awards 2011/12


Adult Awards 2011/12

On Saturday 12th May the Club came together to round off the season and celebrate the adult award winners. The mood was sparkling as 100 members joined together.  This was preceded by champagne, canapés, and a super pig roast supper.  And everyone danced the night away. Of particular note was the honouring of Chris Daniels for many years outstanding service for the Club, now she is formally stepping down.  She had a long and distinguished first team playing record (and captaincy), established the junior section plus the Ladies’ 3rds starting the player flow from junior to adult, coached the Ladies’ 1sts through from Kent Leagues to the Nationals, melded the entire Ladies club before and during her role as Hockey Manager, and the list could go on…..  All in all a superb achievement, and her efforts and inspiration will be sorely missed.   Other headlines are:-

  • the stepping down from the Ladies’ 1sts of Sue Smith and Donna Shalders after many superb playing seasons. Sue has been responsible for guiding numerous players into the sport, and Donna has completed over 25 years in the first team;
  • Laura Thompson and Jimmy Christmas are players of the year;
  • the brothers Jimmy and Mark Christmas pick up two key awards;
  • the Emery family picked up the clubman of the year award for their dedicated services to the Club and in particular the junior section;
  • Jimmy Christmas and Wendy Emery picked up two awards each, and
  • four new Vice Presidents were announced for their long services to the Club – Lizzie Daniels, Matt Evans, Mark Bourne and Mark Gibbons.
