Our Team

Youth Coordinator

Lorna Robertson

“I joined Enfield Hockey Club in 1990 and have been playing ever since, with only a couple of brief pauses to have my two children. Hockey is a very sociable sport and I have made some great friends through the club. I took over running the youth section 3 years ago and hope increase the numbers of young people coming into the wonderful game of hockey. Both my children aged 9 and 11 are enthusiastic hockey players who love scoring goals against their mum!”

Coaches

Graham Sparrey (Level 2)

“I have been playing hockey for more than 20 years (wow, is it really that long?!!) I started playing hockey for the junior section at Enfield Hockey club and then contiued through University and ever since. I achieved my Level 1 coaching qualification (and CRB check) in 2003, and completed Level 2 in 2009. Since 1999 I have coached the borough of Enfield boys and girls hockey teams for the London youth games – including some of our current crop of senior club players and one of my fellow coaches!!”
Charlotte Gonella (Level 1)

“I started playing hockey when I was in year 10, about 14 years old, because my PE teacher told me to come and play for the school team. One day our goalkeeper didn’t show up so I went in goal- I didn’t make it out for a decade! I started playing for Winchmore Hill when a teacher from a school we played against asked me if I wanted to play for a club and I played with Southgate juniors at the same time. I then played for my college at university. Since coming back to the club I am trying to stay as far out of goal as possible by attempting to forge a career up front! I recently passed my level one coaching course and can’t wait to put my new skills to the test.”
Gemma Luckman (Level 1)

“I started playing hockey when I was 11 years old. I have played for schools, sixth form, university and club teams. Although the levels of play have ranged from the lowest division to representing the East of England, I have always found the same love for the game. This love comes not only from playing and coaching week in and out but from the great teams I have been a part of and the friendships I have made.”
Lisa Jobson (Level 1)

“I played hockey at school and Winchmore Hill when I was younger. I took a break while working abroad which was unfortunately lengthened due to injury. I am now working my way back to full fitness playing in the Ladies 2s as well as helping out with the junior section.”
Dom Smith

“My first taste of hockey came at 12 or 13 years old courtesy of a teacher at our school who helped out in games lessons occasionally. He had a real passion for hockey and managed to get the boys playing hockey as an alternative to only football and cross country running in the winter. I still love playing now nearly 30 years later! Hockey is not only a great sport, but by training and playing with older players at our local club I think I learnt many lessons that have helped me in life too. I now have a 9 year old son, William, who comes along on a Sunday morning and is picking up my passion for hockey. Seeing him and all the other children enjoying themselves and progressing week by week has brought me great pleasure.”
Nick Smith

“I started playing hockey on grass (longer ago than I care to remember!) for what was then Enfield HC’s mini’s. Since that fateful sunday I have played for my School, Borough, County, College, Uni and Club – hockey is the constant in my life. I am willing to play wherever I’m needed, and that’s usually in goal or defence. Coaching on a Sunday is not only a way to do a bit for my club but is also great fun and probably helps improve my game understanding too.”
