Newbridge Hockey Club would like to thank all the parents of the club for their constant support and feedback throughout the season, the players for their hard work and diligence on and off the pitch and finally the coaches who turn up week in week out, rain hail or snow.
We’d also like to thank Newbridge College and St Marys for the use of pitches as well as the other locals clubs Naas, Abbeyleix, North Kildare, Tullamore for participating in blitzes and matches during the year.
As outgoing Chairperson I would also like to extend a massive thank you to the committee for their support and work rate throughout this season and previous. The work done in the background is second to none and without which the club would not be in existence. I would also like to wish incoming Chairperson Cólleen Devine and the committee for 2015-16 the very best of luck and has no doubt the club can only strengthen with these girls at the helm.
Registration for next season for juniors will start back in September 2015 with seniors back in August for pre-season. We would like to wish everyone a great summer and look forward to seeing you next season.
