Harte claims top hockey award
26 Jan 2016 14:02
Ireland’s David Harte has won the prestigious hockey Goalkeeper of the Year award.
The Green Machine stopper won tournament awards at World League 2, World League 3 and the EuroHockey Championships in 2015.
Currently playing for Dabang Mumbai in the India League, the Ireland captain was commended by the International Hockey Federation, having helped the team to qualify for their first Olympic Games since 1908.
“Harte’s performances in the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Final ensured both a fighting chance for Ireland to get to Rio and his own position as Best Goalkeeper in that tournament,” they said.
“It was an accolade that he picked up again at the EuroHockey Championships 2015 when Ireland won a bronze medal, Ireland's first medal at a major international event."
Netherlands pair Lidewij Welten and Robert Van der Horst picked up the Player of the Year awards.
