Kirsten Stuckey nominated for Community Umpire of the Year

Congratulations and good luck to North Shore United's very own Kirsten Stuckey who is attending the Hockey New Zealand Awards Dinner tonight. She is one of three finalists for the Community Umpire of the Year.

Kirsten has been an umpire since the age of 15, and began her association with NSU in 2000. She now plays in our Premier Reserve Women's team.

Kirsten is on the North Harbour Hockey Umpire's committee and spends many hours each week ensuring our club games have umpires appointed to them. She dedicates much of her time mentoring new umpires whilst developing her own umpiring skills.

We wish Kirsten the best of luck at the awards ceremony tonight and also over the coming week as she attends the National Under 21 Tournament as an umpire.

Hockey would not survive in our communities without the enthusiastic and dedicated commitment of people like you, and we wish to both thank and acknowledge your contribution to our club and to our sport.
