A message from the President
A special welcome to our Annual Dinner and Awards Night. Thank you for the tremendous turnout and Congratulations to Amy, Fran, Rocky and Steve Goodfellow for putting this show on the road.
This has been a very special year for Burton Hockey Club …. We said it could be done and now our very own “Ellis Astro” is up and running with a full programme of Home fixtures each weekend together with Club Training and full Academy activity during the week. A great team effort over FIVE years since the Ellis Legacy was received. Our army of supporters and benefactors are too many to name in person but I must highlight the outstanding and patient contributions from Astro Campaign Chairman Steve Morrison, Club Chairman Ian Brown, Glyn Holland and our very own, industrious Treasurer, Rocky Whetton.
We are now Burton Hockey Club Limited with the “Ellis Astro” as a major asset on the Club’s balance sheet; WE MUST NOW LOOK AFTER IT…
Our mission following The London Olympics “To Inspire a Generation” is the on -going task; to keep the current momentum of encouraging young Boys and Girls to participate in “Sport” particularly “Hockey” through our Academy and within the local schools and Colleges.
The benefits for our young people; apart from healthy physical exercise are the learning of key Life Skills. Respect, Discipline, Teamwork, Sportsmanship, Initiative and perhaps most important the opportunity to form “Friendships” and have fun – it is great to “Win” but taking part is the most important!
For the “Mission” to succeed we need “Volunteers” in every area of the Club! ….. PLEASE jump in and contribute wherever you are able. Thanks to Graham Lamb for his great work getting Press Reports into the Burton Mail and to Kev Heath, Jamie Cooper, Zoe Ridley and her academy team for their superb contribution to coaching. Not to forget Nick Goode and his always willing Team of conscientious Umpires … Thank You.
Enjoy your evening, Strength to your Elbows, Onward and Upwards.
Willie Welch, President
