NEWENT’S female hockey stars have been shortlisted for a prestigious award after an unbeaten season.
Newent’s Ladies First Team have been named as one of the candidates for the England Hockey Women’s Team of the Year.
They find themselves up against Investec League Confrerence East champions Wimbledon, London Academicals and Isle of Man champions Vikings A, who won all 12 of their league fixtures in 2016/17.
The winners of the award will be annouced at England Hockey’s awards dinner on Saturday May 20, at the Athena in Leicester.
“The quality of the nominees in each of the categories was once again exceptionally high, making for some tough decisions for the England Hockey selection panel,” a statement from England Hockey read.
