TWO young members of Thurrock Hockey Club have recently been presented with a Jack Petchey Achievement Award. Liam Birch (22) and Bradley Rust (16) have been honoured for their work with the junior section of the club.
Both young men coach the under 11 children on Wednesday evenings at Palmer’s College Astro pitch. As part of the award, they receive Â£250 each from the Jack Petchey organisation to spend for the benefit of the other young people in the club.
Liam and Bradley are going to use the money for the club to organise a coaching course. This will enable them and other members of the club to take their coaching qualification at a local venue.
