Sporting Hero Award – Shiregreen Community Awards 2017

As you know we’ve been very busy over the last twelve months developing Sheffield Wildcats Roller Hockey Club, opening the doors to new players, parents and coaches. It has  been a huge success and a massive team effort from all involved. But if one person were to be singled out for their unwavered support, dedication and leadership it would be our chairman, Keith Whitton.

Keith has been involved with the Wildcats and Roller Hockey teams all over the north since his early playing days back in the 1970’s. He still plays today and dedicates his spare time to the development of our kids and seeking new opportunities for our club. So we could not be more proud that Keith won the Sporting Hero Award at the local Shiregreen Community Awards ceremony on Friday 24th February 2017.

The whole of the Wildcats family would like to congratulate Keith on his award and extend all of our thanks to those who recognised Keith for his skills, passion and endeavour in giving new opportunities to kids. He’s a worthy winner in all our eyes and we’re pleased this hasn’t gone unnoticed by the community of Shiregreen.

We have more plans afoot to build on the first twelves months success so watch this space.

Well done Keith!

NCRHA Under 11’s home tournament

This has been a massive weekend of Roller Hockey action in Sheffield. Saturday saw our under 11’s team play their home tournament at the wonderful Ponds Forge against teams from Manchester, Middlesborough, Plymouth and Spectrum. All the games were a big test for our kids but they never gave up and brought the house down with some great goals. The tournament also marked a full year of us starting the kids team sessions and its for all to see how they have improved game on game. Well done everyone, lets get ready for the next one!

We’d like to extend a big old Wildcats thank you to all the teams, coaches, parents, time keepers and referees who made it all possible. We couldn’t do it without you.

NCRHA Under 13’s tournament – Spen Valley

Our Under 13’s played their second tournament at Spen Valley today and put in some fantastic performances against relatively experienced and talented opposition. The team are ever improving and continue to make great strides in what is such a short space of time. Sooner or later we will no doubt see a first win for the team! The score lines aren’t totally reflective of the teams determined play and the goals will surely soon flow. Well done to the team and thanks to all who came along to support the team.

Well done to our Cottenham team!

To celebrate the success of our first kids team competing in the Cottenham invitational tournament at the beginning of September we invited our friend and local councillor Dawn Dale to present the team with a gift. Each player who joined in the fun was presented with their own club branded rucksack by Dawn to say thank you for representing the club in such a brilliant way.

For those who couldn’t play don’t worry, everyone who plays for the club this year will also get a Wildcats bag. So make sure you register your interest for the teams and train as hard as you can!

We’d like to extend a further thanks to Dawn for coming down and supporting the club once more. Your interest and support is very welcome and appreciated to all at the Wildcats Roller Hockey Club.
