Surbiton’s Under-12 Girls, who won the In2Hockey Championships yet again after beating Marlow 3-0 in the final at Cannock HC, received the Team of the Year award in the Junior category. Surbiton Ladies capped an historic year in which they completed the Investec Women’s Hockey League Premier Division and Investec Women’s Cup double for the first time, by receiving the senior Team of the Year award.
Surbiton Ladies’ coach, Brett Garrard, who has taken the team out of the South Clubs’ Women’s Hockey League and through the Investec Women’s Hockey League Conference East and into the Premier Division, and next Easter lead them into Europe, deservedly received the Coach of the Year award.
Surbiton Hockey Club also received the Mick Burgess Sports Club of the Year award.
Surbiton’s Chair of Colts, and Executive Board member, Fred Moore was given the Mayor’s Special Award for exceptional achievement and commitment to youth sport development in Elmbridge.
Where appropriate, the award winners will be assessed and shortlisted for the Surrey Sports Awards which are due to be held at Kempton Park Racecourse on 2 December.
