I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the senior players and coaching staff for the very successful season we just had. Placing second in the league and winning the knock out means that all the hard work and sacrifices you have made are paying off. The level of play both as individuals and as a team improved substantially in this last year, an achievement that you should be proud of. You proved to yourselves that you can play good hockey and you can beat your opponents. There was a hurdle in the way, which was keeping you back, and with determination you overcame it.
It is time to reflect on what you have achieved. This year you managed to gain 18 points out of the total of 24 points. This is a good result. Looking forward, I strongly believe that next season, with some more effort and commitment, you can achieve more. I urge you all to roll up your sleeves and let us aim for and work towards celebrating two titles next season.
I would also like to show my appreciation to the players and coaching staff of the junior section. I know that this year was not easy but you managed to get some good results. Well done.
I also commend the Hockey 5’s players, particularly for the commitment and dedication they showed throughout the season.
Last but not least, my thanks goes to all the supporters for their unwavering loyalty towards our players throughout the season. The support they provide not only encourages the players but help to strengthen our hockey family.
