Mens Club Captain (1s & 2s)
"My name is Tyson Nunneley and I am the Men’s Club Captain for the 1st and 2ndXI.
I have been a member of Banbury Hockey Club since about 1997. I first joined as a junior member when I was 13 being encouraged by my mother. She was the junior organiser for the club at the time as well as playing for the ladies section.
I played for both junior and senior sections of the club through my teenage years. After returning from university I became a regular 1st XI player. I have been part of several league and cup winning men’s sides in the last 15 years. I captained the men’s 1’s for a season and have captained the mixed team for several years, including the national cup victory a few years ago.
I have represented and Captained the England Mixed team and represented the England O35’s at the 2019 European Championships.
I have also coached and umpired at all levels of the club.
Off the pitch, I have always taken a fairly active role in the club. I was the social secretary for the club for a number of seasons. Organising social events at the clubhouse as well as the End of Season Dinner.
I am a firm believer that you are a member of a club and you have to put back as well as take. And I try to encourage others to adopt this approach. Banbury HC is a very special club to be a part of and provides an outstanding quality of hockey to all its members at all levels.”
