Hon­ours are de­served, not taken for granted

The Hockey Paper - - FEATURE / OPINON -

I’M SO fed up of hear­ing how every­one de­serves to be ‘hon­oured’ by an out­dated po­lit­i­cal sys­tem and com­par­isons with other sports as if it’s mer­ited. Ditto with me­dia or other ‘awards’.

What hap­pened to sim­ply tak­ing plau­dits from the fans and tak­ing plea­sure in the tro­phy and medal that you won?

When I was part of the all­con­quer­ing Beechen Cliff un­der-12,13,14 cricket teams, I cher­ished the medal and the glory. I didn’t go whing­ing that Mill­field won the ‘School Sports team of the Year’ spon­sored by the Western Daily Press. Grow up. PAUL HISKENS
