Silver - Jon Rye -  Hockey

Never far from Holcombe Park, his email accounts or mobile phone, Jon Rye is a true unsung hero of Holcombe Hockey Club and hockey in Medway. His posh committee titles don’t sum up the work he does, litter picking and garden maintenance aren’t on his job list but he does them, for the benefit of the club and its members.  Jon has integrated the England Hockey Player Pathway, a Development Centre and a Kent Academy Centre in to the club so all local young hockey players get opportunities to progress.


Bronze - Steve Williamson - Football

Steve Williamson first visited Anchorians FC in 2013 as the tutor for a referee’s course.  After a few months Steve became a regular dedicating more and more of his time. Steve eventually took on the role of Referees Secretary.  He has recruited, trained and mentored referees and is now Kent Girls and Ladies Referee Secretary.  Steve is now a permanent fixture at the club, running the clubhouse on match days and on a day-to-day basis.  The added income this brings has supported the club’s recent growth.
