Pinny treble at BHC end of season awards Trish Sawyer   Thu 10th Apr
Bedford Hockey Club hosted their annual end of season awards dinner on Saturday night at the Swan Hotel. It’s been a hugely successful season at the club particularly on the ladies side where 3 teams gained promotion with 2 going up as champions. The ladies 1st team led the way having won promotion back up to the National League after a 6 year absence and this success was recognised with the ladies team of the season award and the chairman’s award. The ladies 1’s player’s player award was won jointly by impressive midfield duo Katherine Winger and Emma Pinny whilst Pinny went onto collect the prestigious Durham trophy for the ladies player of the season and the mixed player of the season award. Emma Pinny has been an ever present for 1s putting in some phenomenal midfield displays with a mixed of tough tackling, huge determination to improve her game all this having gone through major illness over the summer.

Bedford Girls School student Louise Beechener was named young player of the year having helped the 2’s to a second consecutive promotion alongside leading goal scorer Steph Holyoak whilst Alice Green and Alice Facey from the title winning 4’s took home “Most Improved” and the “Txt Drive Academy player of the year” respectably. Finally from the ladies side Maggie Rees was awarded the honour of the services to the ladies section trophy in recognition of her retirement after over 30 years at the club.

Onto the men’s section and Dan Mason picked up the top award of the evening - Men’s Player of the Year whilst the outstanding displays of goalkeeper Simon Dolan meant that he was the popular choice for 1st team player’s player. Tim Burn’s impressive break through performances saw him take home Young Player of the Year whilst Pete Spenceley netted over 40 goals for the men’s vets this season which made him the runaway winner of the top goal scorer award whilst finally Josh Hughes Earlington won Most Improved player.

Speaking about the season BHC chairman Rob Moulam said ”It was great to see so many people celebrating such a successful year for BHC with many individuals and teams recognised for their dedication, commitment and the results achieved”

In other news on Sunday, the BHC mixed team have the chance to make the quarter finals of the EHB Mixed Trophy when they travel to Leicestershire to face Melton HC.

Diary Dates - Socials Trish Sawyer   Tue 14th Jan

Dear BHC members,

 

It's the moment you've all been waiting for.  Clear your diaries and count up your pennies, it's social time!

 

First up, what better way to celebrate the end of dry January than our world famous BHC Bingo night on Saturday 1st February. With pizza, prizes and top of the shop bingo caller Dan Mason at the helm, it's sure to be a tickety-boo night.  Entry costs just (lucky number) £7, to be paid to Paul behind the bar at the club. Reserve your place early to avoid disappointment.

 

Secondly, we are pleased to announce that our End of Season dinner will take place at the Bedford Swan Hotel on Saturday 5th April.  The event will be black tie and there will be a three course sit-down meal, a raffle and a disco.  You can again pay for your ticket with Paul behind the bar (£40 for adults and £35 for under 18s). Numbers need to be confirmed with the venue by March 5th so please buy your ticket as early as possible.

 

So don't leave it to the last minute. Why not put your name down when you’re next at the club and be safe in the knowledge that you're going to the biggest events in the BHC social calendar?

 

See you all there,

 

BHC Social Committee
