And the Winners (from Yorkshire) of the England Hockey Awards 2018 are ...

And the Winners (from Yorkshire) of the England Hockey Awards 2018 are ...
Lifetime Achievement Award: JUDITH NICHOLSON
Official of the Year: LEE BARRON
Innovation (for Beach Hockey): SCARBOROUGH HC
Vitality Hockey Maker of the Year: BEV BARSTOW
See 'read the rest...' (below) for details of these awards

Lifetime Achievement Award: Judith Nicholson
Looking through the hockey archives, Judith’s name is first mentioned in 1974, when she was one of 16 founder members of Welton Ladies Hockey Club, which went on to become the most successful ladies club in the Hull area. She was chair of that club from 1976 to 1985 and again from 1987 to 1989. Judith has been involved with the North Hockey Association, holding offices such as Vice President, President and Secretary. In recent years, despite fighting cancer and crippling arthritis that has necessitated two knee replacements; she has continued to work with senior hockey but has now become fully involved in the development of Junior hockey in the area. Judith works tirelessly for hockey and without her determination and commitment, many hockey players would not have got the opportunities to play and be successful in their chosen sport.

Official of the Year - Lee Barron
This year Lee has done everything there is in umpiring terms, from regional under 12’s to World Cup Finals. This started with the League Finals and Play Offs in April where Lee again umpired one of the semi finals and the final relegation game. Lee didn’t have much of a summer off this year as in June he headed to Namibia for the African Cup & Indoor World Cup Qualifier. As part of umpire development in the North, Lee is an active umpire coach and mentor for many of the Norths young and up and coming umpires. This year Lee will also hopefully have completed his Level 3 Umpire Coaching Award. He became one of only two male umpires to officiate in a second World Cup Final (Indoors) at a noisy Berlin.

Innovation - Scarborough HC (for beach hockey)
Beach hockey is relaxed way to play hockey, it has no charge and is open to everyone to join with great exposure to the general public. On really hot days there were a lot of sand castles left to dribble around; getting tackled by a sand castle is a new experience that everyone should try. Passersby’s have been joining in with games and the Beach Big Dribble, sometimes the umpire has taken the dog lead so that the owners can have a run out! Even the local Police Officers have joined in! This has been great raising the profile of hockey and/or their club beach hockey can be for anyone.

Vitality Hockey Maker of the Year - Bev Barstow
Bev repeatedly gives up a phenomenal amount of time to train young generations in ball patrol; with so many applications for the Vitality Women’s Hockey World Cup she has been travelling all over the country to undertake sessions with potential candidates and to review their skill set giving up both her weekends and evenings. Our Ball Patrol is seen one of the best in the world where other events aspire to, the FIH use her training plans to give to other events to use. A lot of her work is very behind the scenes, she even assisted from the UK in training ball patrol for the Olympics in Rio.

CONGRAULATIONS to Ben Rhydding Hockey Club Mens Over 50s - National Champions Once Again!
Ben Rhydding Hockey Club Mens Over 50s - National Champions Once Again!
CONGRATULATIONS to Ben Rhydding Hockey Club Mens Over 50s who won the EH Masters O50s Champioshsip last Sunday beating Devon club Isca 1-0 in the final at Lee Valley - making them the best in England for the 3rd time in 5 years having previously won the trophy in 2014 1nd 2016, and were losing finallists last season.
A third national title in five years is a massive achievement for a club from a modest sized town in the north of England but couldn't have been achieved without a full squad who all made key contributions throughout the season which also included David Cutter and David Habin.
This  Saturday, 12th May, Ben Rhydding Girls Under-18s will hope to emulate the Men as they take on Reading Girls in the Under-18s Championship Final at Lee Valley.

Ben Rhydding’s Masters team travelled to the Olympic Park Lee Valley Stadium to face Isca (Exeter) Hockey Club in the National Final of the Over 50s Cup. Having won in 2014 and 2016 and losing in the final last year, it was a great achievement to make the final again.  However, every member of the team felt that winning would be the only satisfactory outcome. 
On a baking hot day, the self induced pressure on captain Neill Moore and his team was immense.  Isca had put the competition favourites, Reading, out in the last round and were always going to be tough opponents.
The first half saw end to end hockey but both teams struggled in the heat and made uncharacteristic mistakes.  Fortunately the Ben Rhydding defence held firm with a series of vital last moment tackles from Andy Locke and sprightly goalkeeping from Paddy Hagan (cheered on by 15 specially clad Hagan fans).  Neill Moore kept England’s Andy Bachelor contained and Neil Horsman and Hugh Lambert provided vital control and release points from defence.
Manager Richard Terry kept the team as fresh as possible by use of the strong bench and in the second half Ben Rhydding got a better grip on the game.  The quality that Ben Rhydding were able to deploy up front through Rob Ward, Billy Marwaha, Ian Cussons, Howard Pickard and Jonathan Till, meant that they were always in with a chance of scoring. The goal duly came from Ward after some slick passing and a fine strike that the Isca keeper was never able to predict.
The last 15 minutes were naturally very tense with a huge defensive effort from Ben Rhydding during which Isca were restricted to just one shot on goal which hit the post.  The fitness of Fraser Priestley and the sensible use of rolling substitutes meant that the midfield combinations of Brian Kempson, Jon Bray, Richard Pughe, Mark Westwood and Mark French maintained enough control and the clock was run down to secure a 1-0 victory.
A third national title in five years is a massive achievement for a club from a modest sized town in the north of England but couldn't have been achieved without a full squad who all made key contributions throughout the season which also included David Cutter and David Habin.

Commiserations to Hull Ladies Over-45s!
Commiserations to Hull Ladies Over-45s!
Kingston-upon-Hull Lady Master Over 45s hockey team played at the London Olympic Legacy hockey pitch at Lee Valley on Sunday 29 April, in the final of the England Hockey Tier 2 Over 45s competition against Bretforton Ladies from the Vale of Evesham.
Hull who won the trophy in 2014, the first year of the competition, were unlucky to lose 3-0 to a lively Bretforton team, but were worthy runners-up this year.

kuh_lady_masters_21_04_18_002.jpgThis year the Hull team faced local rivals Driffield in the first round back in November, just missing out by 3 goals to 2, so as first round losers progressed through to the Tier 2 competition, where they got a home draw against Norwich Dragons. The full time score was 2-2 but after two rounds of penalty strokes, the Hull team came out winners with 4 goals to 3. The next round in February saw them travel away to Sale, coming away with a score of 4-3 and progressing to the semi-final. The snow scuppered two attempts to travel the 400 mile round trip to play against north London club Southgate Flutes, but the game eventually went ahead on 21 April and the Hull side scored early in the game, and the end result was 3-1 to Hull.
Team captain Di Kirby said “Masters hockey is growing every year, and is a fantastic opportunity for those of us who want to continue to play competitively. All of our players have put something back into the game over the years, whether umpiring, coaching or managing, and it’s great that we can still play with a competitive edge. Whatever the outcome on Sunday, we’ve had a great season and are looking forward to representing Kingston upon Hull.  We are the only club in Hull to offer junior, men’s and ladies hockey, and are always looking for new members and volunteers to help us offer even more opportunities to more players. We are self-supporting and would welcome any offers of sponsorship to help us grow and develop as a club.”
