Congratulations to Margaret Shaw who won the prestigious Railway Union Sports Club George Beard.
The success of our ladies hockey teams is in no small part due to Margaret’s considerable commitment, passion and energy over the past five years, Margaret Shaw.
Margaret has been pivotal to the growth of our underage section, growing it from perhaps under a 100 girls to something now approaching 200 across 14 underage teams.
Margaret’s organisation and commitment supports the development of our young aspiring players through into the senior teams thereby assisting the club remain at the top of national competitions.
Margaret is a dynamic and committed individual. She takes full ownership of running the girls underage section. From planning and coordinating player selection and match scheduling to sourcing and appointing team coaches and managers, preparing weekly communications to parents and encouraging them to support club initiatives.
All of these actions help deepen relationships with young players and their parents, thereby strengthening the club overall and its future prospects.
Margaret is stepping back from the Youths Coordinator role which she has held for the last few years and she will be truly missed from this role.
