KWAZULU-NATAL Hockey Association has announced the players to represent the senior Raiders and Mynahs men’s and women’s squads for the upcoming indoor hockey inter-provincial tournaments.

Riverside Hockey Club in Durban North has proved their worth once again in the men’s and women’s sides, with 10 players in the men’s Raiders and Mynahs teams and six in the women’s equivalent.

Bruce Grant, Calvin Price, Dan Sibbald, Gareth Mason, Justin Birnie, Kai Petty, Keegan Robinson, Matt Fairweather, Sean Baxter and Tylo Remke have cracked the nod for the men, with Donne Oxenham, Michelle Coogle, Yvonne Roentgen, Amy Visagie, Kylie Oosthuizen and Wendy Snelling flying the flag for the women. Brett Clay, a coach at Riverside, is in charge of the KZN women’s Mynahs side.

Chairperson of Riverside Hockey Club, Wayne Phillips, was justifiably proud of the club and their players. “These players make us as a club stand tall,” he said. “We are currently enjoying a successful indoor season with great results from all 16 of our teams involved.

“Our club mantra is pure hockey enjoyment and this is an outstanding achievement from our players, plus a coach, to be selected to represent their province at a high level. They are an inspiration to the many youngsters at our club, pursuing hockey.”

Phillips added he hoped the KZN teams would rise to the occasion and bring home the spoils from the tournament. Grant, who plays for Riverside’s first men’s team, was excited to represent KZN, recognising that hard work had been rewarded.

“No doubt I am thrilled to be representing Riverside and KZN. It will feel like home from home with many fellow club mates also in the squad,” he said.

“To date, all our sides have been performing well in the indoor league and to have so many selected for the various squads is a great reward for them, and the passion they have for the club and hockey.”
