Kellie receiving the New South Wales Senior Female Hockey Player of the Year award off Hockey NSW Director Alexandra RoseSHORTLY after Kellie’s ACL reconstruction and the disappointment of not achieving the dream she had since the age of four, Kellie said she was shocked and overwhelmed when she received the news that she had won the New South Wales Senior Female Hockey Player of the Year for 2011.
“Receiving the award gave me the boost I needed to get on with what I knew I had to do – face what 2012 had brought to me and look forward to 2013 where I will fight my way back into the team.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Crookwell Community and my friends for all their positive well wishes and support.
“A big thank you to the Mulwaree Shire and Upper Lachlan Shire, in particular John Shaw and Margaret O’Neill and the business houses that donated generously to the Olympic Fundraiser held in Goulburn. “Thanks to Glen Turner and Brooke Pratley for their kind words about myself and my injury.
“I wish you both well and every success for the Olympics and also my team mate Emily Smith who I look forward to supporting further in her Olympic pursuit.
“Thanks also to Crookwell Junior Girls hockey where it all started for me.
“I have some of my fondest memories of you.
“Congratulations on your 50 years – it was a fantastic night.
“Lastly to my family – thank you for always being there for me through the absolute highs and the absolute lows.
“Thank you for picking me up and wiping away the tears and giving me a kick start to a more successful 2013 and beyond, said Kellie
