THE St Georges Basin Hockey Club junior team finished their season as well deserved minor premiers.
Unfortunately they were not able to take away the premiership trophy as well, losing the grand final after extra-time and penalty strokes to a determined Bluejays.
The team showed continual improvement under the guidance of coach Michael Dolby and included senior players Liam Dooley, Louis Cameron, Sarah Kenny, Chloe Boyce-Mortlock, Mathew Brett, Thomas Dolby and Nathan Kenny, along with the younger crew of Josh Rickwood, Joel Kenny, Ben Macdonald, Mikayla Rickwood, Abbie Macdonald, Cadence Buckley and Jordan Guillaume.
All players should be satisfied with their efforts in 2013.
Thomas Dolby had another big season and took out the best and fairest award for the competition.
This was well deserved, with Thomas dominating many junior games and cementing a place in the Basin senior team, showing that he will be a threat to the older players in 2014.
St Georges Basin Hockey Club would like to thank the St Georges Basin Country Club for their generous sponsorship, which enables the club to support its juniors, with Thomas Dolby, Nathan Kenny, Sarah Kenny, Ben Macdonald, Josh and Mikala Rickwood all playing in NSW Championships during 2014.
The St Georges Basin Hockey Club presentation night for junior, women’s and men’s teams will be held at the St Georges Basin Country Club at 6.30pm on Friday, October 25.
Anyone who would like to have a go at hockey is welcome to play in the Shoalhaven Hockey Summer Twilight competition from 6pm on Monday and Tuesday nights and for juniors from 6pm on Thursdays.
