Winchester District Sports Awards for the Year 2017
I am very pleased to report that Winchester HC Junior Section has won 2 awards in the prestigious Winchester District Sports Awards last week. Of the 10 categories on offer we nominated in 2 and won them both!
There were a record number of nominations (110) across the 10 categories so indeed a great honour for the Club.
In the boys Junior Sportsman award category Harry Croft-Baker and Rory Penrose were awarded joint winners as they both had such outstanding achievements in 2017, the selection panel could not split them!
The Winchester H.C. U14 boy’s hockey squad also won the Team of the Year award category for the outstanding achievement of winning the England Hockey Boy’s National U-14 Cup last May. That award was open to both junior and adult nomintations across all sports, so quite a honour.
It is a while since the Club has won any awards at this annual event so I hope this will inspire Club members to more success in future years.
