Harbour Hockey to shine at 2021 Harbour Sports Awards

We are very proud to share that our very own Simon Taylor, Judith Quinlan, and our Cello Under 18 Premier sides are finalists for the 2021 Harbour Sports Awards.

After Judith was the national winner of the Hockey New Zealand Volunteer of the Year Award in 2020, it is a huge achievement to see Judith as a finalist in the Harbour Sport Volunteer of the Year category within wider sporting community. For those who don’t know Judith (although I think most do!), there almost isn’t a space that she hasn’t volunteered in. From coaching Coatesville primary teams, sitting on numerous committees, starting new hockey clubs, creating hockey at home programmes, to managing club teams, all while playing herself and bringing up two budding young hockey players of her own. Judith does do it all. We wish you good luck for the evening and would love to see you retake the cake!

We are very excited to see Simon recognized for his monumental successes within his umpiring career in 2021. Simon blew his achievements out of the park for yet another year as he umpired the men’s bronze medal match at the Tokyo Olympic Games, which was a significant milestone in his career. Although covid restrictions limited his overseas ventures, Simon was appointed to the Hockey New Zealand Men’s North vs. South test series. The Trans-Tasman clashes prepared him for the Olympic games to follow soon. Simon has now decided to hang up his whistle and finish his international career on a high. North Harbour Hockey would like to congratulate him on all his success (just too many to list) and wish him all the best for the Official of the Year category at the awards evening, as well as what the future holds with a little more free time!

The Cello Under 18 Premier Men and Women’s sides are also finalists for the Harbour Sports Junior Team of the Year for 2021. This year saw the tournament shift back to the association level, which meant a greater number of teams and enabled more players and coaches to compete. Becoming finalists for this award alongside many other competing sports is a tremendous success for our emerging young athletes. It is a testament to our hardworking coaches to get them there. Congratulations to Hitendra Patel, Kevin Fraiser, Aiden Fraser, Timothy Kerr, and Netesh Sukha for leading your teams to finalists for this Harbour Sport Award. Not to mention our very own James Coughlan, for all of the time and hard work he dedicates towards ensuring a smooth sailing representative campaign for them. Good luck and enjoy the evening!
