RF Brindley Award

This award honours the memory of Robert “Bob” Brindley, stalwart of the UWA Hockey club, First Division player for many years, Past Club President and Past President of WAHA, (HockeyWA’s predecessor) and a Director of Hockey Australia whom passed away in his early 50s.

The award came into being following his death and the amalgamation of the Men’s and Women’s clubs in 1985 as the newly formed club had no award to recognise service to the full club.

This award recognises outstanding contribution to the club as a volunteer, either as a board member, player, coach or administrator. It is the highest annual award given by the club and acknowledges that contribution over the last year.

2013 Winners: Ryan Croll and Damien McEvoy

JS Lynn Award

J S Lynn played in the era immediately post war and was captain of our first Men’s First Division Premiership team in 1947. He recognised the need to acknowledge the contribution and service to the club by individuals and so donated this award that now bears his name.

This award recognises a commitment to the Men’s division of the club that brings credit to the Hockey club as a whole over the course of the last year. Usually presented to a member of the Men’s Division but this is not a requirement.

2013 Winner: Frank Fitzgerald

This award recognises a commitment to the Women’s division of the club that brings credit to the University Hockey club as a whole over the course of the last year. Usually presented to a member of the Women’s Division but this is not a requirement.
