Interview with Andrew Shelton

Sponsored Player: Matthew Steffens

Why do you sponsor and support the Waverley Hockey Club? 
Waverley Hockey Club has played a huge part in my life, I have been involved in the club since I was 14, and have been lucky enough to participate at the highest level as both a player and a coach, which is something I am very proud of. My wife Lauren and I now watch our kids William and Ava running around in the juniors, and together we are able to play in part in their development in the club as well. To be in a position to now be able to give back, through sponsorship and support of the young players coming through, is also something we as a family are very happy to do.

Why did you decide to sponsor Matthew Steffens this year? 
Well, Matty called and asked me to, so it was hard to say no… Matt was an up and coming junior back when I was playing, he always had a great attitude and strived to get the best out of himself, as he was coming up through the ranks back then. Having come back to the club as a coach over the last few years, seeing his development, not only as a player, but as a leader within the group has been fantastic. As a coach, I always knew what Matt was going to bring each week personally, and also the energy and positivity he was going to bring to the group.
