Fareham Hockey Club, together with City of Portsmouth Hockey Club, will be celebrating the life of Academy Coach Pete Atkins who sadly passed away on Boxing Day, 2017.
Pete was a larger than life character who dedicated his life to the sport we all love. Pete’s experience spans from our current crop of U12’s, to coaching both Cookie and Lemmo as juniors. Yes, that’s who you have to blame lol !
Pete was widely regarded as the best junior coach in the South and probably across the country, and his achievement of coaching 4 Olympians over the period of 1988 – 2012 is a truly remarkable feat.
So, how do we celebrate the life of this amazing man I hear you ask? Well, members of both clubs have held a few meetings and decided what better that a fun filled day of hockey spanning all ages.
We have also set up the ‘Pete Atkins Youth Hockey Foundation’ to offer support to youngsters trying to make their way in the game and to offer coaching to the local community.
We have contacted all of Pete’s Olympians and 3 have offered their services for the day. Sadly, Athens 2004 Goalkeeper, Jimi Lewis is away coaching the GK’s for the German National side.
