At the Canterbury Hockey AGM last night, members unanimously approved the Board's recommendation to accept Waikirikiri Sport as a fully affiliated member. Waikirikiri entered teams in our junior competitions in 2017 and will now be able to enter teams in our senior competitions in a staged manner as required by our Club Affiliation Policy. Having a brand new club is an exciting event for Canterbury Hockey and reflects the huge opportunity we are seeing from the new communities developing in areas such as the Selwyn District. The great work done by the Waikirikiri President, Lyndal Marshall, and the dedicated and enthusiastic team involved in the club was acknowledged at last night's meeting.
