I came to Adel in 2012 after a long break away from hockey, and got involved in my first season as social secretary (I apologise for some of the regrettable decisions some of you have made over this time) , and also organised the end of season dinner every year up until this year. I’ve also been umpire co-ordinator, as well as ladies 3 captain. As well as ladies captain this year, I’m currently fixture secretary (which I’m in my third year), a member on the exec committee, an AWMA rep, as well as a division rep for Yorkshire hockey. Ive worked my way from ladies 4s when I first joined, up to currently playing with ladies 2s. I’m also proud to say that I’m a member of Adel Hockey Club, and I’m proud to see how friendly we are as a club. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed making new friendships at Adel, and also look forward to welcoming new people who decide to join every year. Like Tom, AWMA has become a second home to me – and it’s been a pleasure seeing how interlinked many of the members have become through coming and supporting teams up at the pitch. It’s like a large family.
