Jack Tordoff

Name: Matthew Hulbert
Club: Old Silhillians HC
Nomination: 13-year-old Matthew broke a mini goal drought in style, notching four strikes for his team. He was beginning to worry that the step up to adult hockey was too much for him, but Saturday’s performance has been exactly what he needed to show that his hard work at training and learning from previous matches has all been worth it.

Attack 
Name: Tom Woollatt
Club: Chelmsford HC
Nomination: Tom was a true club hero this weekend. Not only did he score five goals, he also stepped up and umpired two games to make sure all the club’s matches went ahead this weekend.

Name: Andy Golding
Club: St Albans HC
Nomination: After missing the first few games of the season, Andy played the entire 70 minutes with sheer heart and will power. He only misplaced one pass throughout the entire match and often stretched his opponent’s defence. His also exhibited great skills when he intercepted a clearance inside the circle laid it in the path of the other attacker to score the equaliser.

Player: Claire Sampson
Team: Newcastle HC
Nomination: Normally selflessly assisting everyone else, today Claire scored all the goals in a 4-0 win.
