Now England Hockey Photographer's Protegee is recognised!

Nikole Love, teenage protegee of England Hockey Photography Ady Kerry has been awarded second prize in the recent We Are England photo competition run by Commonwealth Games England. 

Nikole, from Kent, won a day shadowing Ady and chose to go to a safari park - preferring animals to sport! However when her work experience week came up she approached Ady who suggested she join him at the Canterbury v. Leicester hockey match and start from there - the resulting picture (see below) is the one awarded second prize!

Nikole told EHB: 'My prize was football tickets and I'm going to watch the Arsenal V Fulham match on the 9th May. [Leicester mid-fielder] Chloe Rogers went to the gallery and saw the photo and recognised the team!'
