Player Profile: Suzanne Scott (1sts) aka Wardi

Name? Wardi

How long have you played hockey? About 8 years on and off

How long have you been with Newbridge HC? This is my 5th year

Do you play any other sports / activities? Running, yoga, bit of tag rugby in the summer, the odd hike in Wicklow Favourite Sports Person? Rafa Nadal

Biggest influence on your sporting life so far? Definitely my dad - some tennis player in his day, played badminton for Ireland, great golfer too. My granny Nora has to be up there too, one of the first women to play golf in Castletroy golf club and kept going well into her 80's. Some woman for one woman!

Best advice someone has ever given you? Better to try and fail than not try at all. Or, 'if you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball', that one really works.

Favourite music? Bit of everything really, something to get you off your chair dancing is always a winner. Love a bit of Fleetwood Mac, sure who doesn't?!

Favourite movie? Some like it hot and Labrynthe (David Bowie version), love those two.

Who’s the tough nut of the team? Martina "knee caps" Kenny Who’s the quickest? Toss up between JT, Louise and Caoimhe. JT by a nose maybe?!

Who’s the joker of the team? Nat. She does a mean Britney impression, even singing at weddings now!

Who’s the worst time keeper on the team? Used to be Louise but seeing as she only has the use of one arm right now, Waters is probably the worst. She tends to saunter from the car to the pitch... bit of a saunterer :) Any advice for someone looking to try a new sport? Hockey's a great way to get fit and make new friends and it never hurts to try something new.
