We’re delighted to announce that England Hockey’s Chief Executive Sally Munday has been awarded an MBE (Member of the British Empire) for services to hockey in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list announced on Friday.
Sally has been working with England Hockey since 1998 having also worked as Development Director and, prior to that, a Regional Development Manager.
Sally is flattered and grateful for the recognition but prefers sees it as more of an award for the progress of the sport in recent years. She commented:
“I’m obviously really delighted to receive this and I see it as recognition for the efforts of all our staff and volunteers who have worked so hard in helping hockey make the progress we have over the last decade.”
Also recognised in the honours is the President of Thurrock Hockey Club Glenda Stephens, who receives the BEM (British Empire Medal) for services to hockey and to the community in Thurrock – she receives our congratulations for the award and our gratitude for the work she has put in for the sport.
