“For the London Royals being shortlisted was an honour in itself. For a relatively small and young club in comparison to most we have achieved a lot, the club has big aspirations and that is thanks to the England Hockey Awards. It is a great event to celebrate the hockey community from across the country. Whether you are a winner or not, just being part of a hockey family that are doing like minded things across the country for one night is truly incredible. We are all striving to put hockey on the map and the England Hockey Awards is a celebration of just that.” said Jamie, Men's Club Captain of London Royals HC who were shortlisted for Club of the Year in 2016.
More information about attending the event will be released shortly.
