NEW ENGLAND HOCKEY AWARDS DINNER 2017
Saturday 20 May 2017
Athena, Leicester

The evening, expertly hosted by Simon Mason, was marked by a record attendance of 450 guests and a record number of shortlisted individuals and clubs in the 15 categories. Sally Munday, CEO, England Hockey paid tribute to all who regularly dedicate their time and energy to hockey adding that the standard of nominations was higher than ever this year.

With several members of the GB women’s Olympic gold medal team in attendance together with members of the current England squad coach Danny Kerry (ex Norfolk and Pelicans HC) was honoured with the Coach of the Year award.

Tom Ling of Norwich City HC won the Rising Star award for his administration, umpiring and other work for the club while HMHC was shortlisted for the Notts Sports Club of the Year award won by Caradon HC of Cornwall. Nick McAllen was very deservedly shortlisted for the Lifetime Achievement award won by Lt Cdr (RN) Alan Walker who sadly died a few weeks ago.
