January 7, 2015

 

Name? Caitriona Kavanagh, aka Catchy

 

How long have you played hockey? 14 Years 

 

How long have you been with Newbridge HC? The last 14 years  

 

Position? Goalkeeper the best position on the pitch.

 

Have you always played in goals? Mostly, except for about two games when I started playing first.

 

Do you play any other sports / activities? Involved in the vintage car scene and motorsport


Favourite Sports Person? Though one, so many to choose from, probably Brian O'Driscoll  

 

Biggest influence on your sporting life so far? Another tough one, sport was always a major influence in our house, being a proud Lark and all, but I know this will sound like I am trying to say the right thing but since Owen came to the club he has been a huge influence, especially being a goalie himself, the level of coaching and experience he brings has made a huge difference in my hockey career.

 

Best advice someone has ever given you?  Always treat people the way you want to be treated and manners costs nothing.

 

Favourite music?  Any kind

 

Favourite movie?   Top Gun/Dirty Dancing, oldies are the best

 

Who’s the tough nut of the team? Martina, who else would play on with a broken knee cap 

  
Who’s the quickest? Definitely me, have you not seen me over a yard, lightning haha

 

Who’s the joker of the team? Natalie always up to something.

 

Who’s the worst time keeper on the team?  Ciara since Louise is injured at the moment, close call though.


Any advice for someone looking to try a new sport? Never be afraid to give it a go, you're never to old or too young to try it, just get out of the house and do something, believe me when I say I have made friends for life in this club, no other club like it, if Carlsberg did clubs this would be the one.
