IMG_0029

Wilmslow Hockey Club have just completed their most successful season in the club's history which saw the Mens 1s, 2s and 3s and Ladies 3s teams all achieving promotion which they all did by winning their respective leagues.

The culmination of the season was marked by nominations for two England Hockey awards - the Mens 1s were up for Team of the Year and their coach Rob Turner, was nominated as coach of the year.

Martin Stocker said "Unfortunately we did not win - we were up against the elite clubs and coaches so just to get there was a great achievement for us."

The club, represented by President Steve Kinsella and Chairman Bruce McLennan together with members of the Mens 1s, attended the awards gala dinner on Saturday, 20th May, in Leicester. Over 500 people gathered from the UK hockey community, including many of the Women's Olympic Gold medal winners from Rio, for the ceremony which showcased the achievements of the club on the national stage and underlines how far Wilmslow Hockey Club has come in the last few years.

Martin Stocker said "Unfortunately we did not win - we were up against the elite clubs and coaches so just to get there was a great achievement for us."

President Steve Kinsella said "Wilmslow Hockey Club has gone from strength to strength over the last few years, culminating in these nominations for the prestigious England Hockey awards. Coming on top of four of our teams winning promotion this season, with the Men's 1s promoted to North Division 1, the highest league position in the club's history, and thriving Ladies and Junior sections, we are delighted to see the club's progress recognised by England Hockey."
