BHHC's men's player of the year helps pupils and country

Joe Naughalty's hockey influence at school, club and international level continues to be felt.

Voted the Men's National Hockey League Conference East player of the year after finishing top goalscorer, the Brighton and Hove Hockey Club sharpshooter is currently in Croatia helping Wales in their efforts to progress in qualification for the 2020 Olympic Games.

Wales, ranked 24th in the world, started the Open Series in Zagreb with a 6-1 win over Slovakia on Monday and face Austria, Switzerland and Croatia this week. The Open Series is designed to help developing nations test themselves against top opposition and give them a better chance to qualify for an Olympics or World Cup.

Two of Joe's pupils at Lancing College, where he is Director of Hockey, featured in the Argus newspaper this week after being recognised by BHHC for their skills. Michael Laurent was voted the men's young player of the year while Mabel Woodley plays for the women's first team.
