Newmarket Hockey Club held their last junior training session of the season on Sunday 20th March at Newmarket Leisure Centre, with players aged 4-13 years enjoying some fun games and activities before the presentation of the annual end of season awards.
The junior section of the club has developed at a pace this season, with numbers attending weekly coaching growing from no more than 20 back in September to a regular 45, organised into the following age groups: U13, U10, U8 & U6.
The job of choosing the 2015-16 award winners was left to the coaches of the various age groups and there were some difficult choices to make, particularly in terms of most improved, with all of the players showing great progress throughout the season. Awards were presented to following though:
U13: Oliver Brown
U10: Millie Hansgate
U8: Jack Baker
U6: Kaiden Wood & Erin Bailey
U13: Rebecca Marsh
U10: Alex Aitken & Romilly Findley
U8: Isabella Means & Sofia Worrall-Wood
U6: Poppy Frampton & Cosi Booth
U13: Henry Donkin
U10: Megan Malone & Amy Colins
U8: Melanie Benedikz
U6: Poppy Frampton
We have had a really good season and have been delighted by the numbers attending weekly coaching, all of the players have shown real improvement in their skills and game play. A particular well done to all of the award winners. Next season we hope to get more coaches involved and helping out with Sunday morning sessions so we can offer further age groups and get even more children playing hockey; they are the future of our club.
