CHARLTON WINS THE ROBYN MACTAGGART MEDAL!
Black Sticks defender Sam Charlton has been named the inaugural winner of the Robyn Mactaggart Medal at the 2015 Hawke’s Bay Cup.
The award recognises the player who is judged the best and fairest over the 24 match tournament.
The judging was done a panel of three independent people and to be eligible for the award, players must not receive more than two yellow cards or a red card during the tournament.
“I am honoured and humble to be recognised with this award. The Black Sticks really appreciate the support that has come from Hawke’s Bay during the past few years and I am a little overwhelmed that I have been honoured with the inaugural Robyn Mactaggart medal,” Charlton said.
The medal has been named in honour of Robyn Mactaggart who had an immense involvement in Hockey as a player, coach, parent and supporter of the game. She passed away after a long illness in November 2012 at the age of 44.
The Robyn Mactaggart medal has been hand crafted in sterling silver from a design by Monique Therese in Havelock North.
