Uddingston receive EuroHockey Club of the Year awards

Posted On 07/03/2023

Scottish club Uddingston received their 2022 EuroHockey Large Club of the Year award this week from Chair of the Development Committee Peter Elders.

It is a special achievement as the Scottish outfit winning a Club of the Year award for a second time as they continue to promote the sport in Glasgow.

“The funny thing is, they won the medium club award in 2015 and they grew so much since then, they have now won the large club. It is unique,” Elders said when visiting this week.

Uddingston’s Allan McGill added: “Where we have progressed massively is off the pitch. With Covid, there wasn’t an awful lot happening on the pitch so, fair dues to our club manager Emma [Little], she has really driven the community side of the club with the men’s shed, helping the community, giving young players somewhere to train and let off steam. 

“Those events off the pitch have generated massive interest and assisted growing the club.”
