The Club’s Junior Members were congratulated for all their efforts this season, and award winners were applauded, at a sparkling event on Friday 24th April. The clubhouse was packed with juniors, parents, coaches and adult members for an emotional evening. There were brief talks, and words of wisdom, by Matt Evans, the Chairman, and Mick Emery, Hockey Manager-Juniors.
All the coaches – Lou Cassey, Julie Davies, Madeleine Putter, Wendy Emery, Jimmy Christmas, Greg Laurenson, Matt Emery – were thanked for their excellent work in what had been a tremendous year for the section. These had been supported by junior helpers during coaching sessions. Numbers of section members were up again this year. The transition of players from the junior ranks to adult teams was wonderful, and happening at a high rate not seen in recent years.
The Parents were also thanked for their wonderfully consistent support for the section this season – the hot beverages & muffins pitch-side (on cold winter Sundays) were particularly appreciated!
