Alea Nottingham is proud to be supporting SportsAid athlete…
England under-21 Chris, who made his Beeston Hockey Club first-team debut at just 15, has represented his country from the under-16 level and captained the England under-18s.
He was part of the Bees squad that finished top of the NOW: Pensions League and then claimed the title at the championship play-offs. While his sporting hero is David Beckham, Chris, 21, says his greatest influence has been Trent College head of hockey and Beeston team-mate Mark Wadsley.
Beeston head coach, ex-England International Matt Taylor, gets the credit for honing his game, lifestyle and philosophy. The £1,000 SportAid award, courtesy of Alea Nottingam, will help Chris achieve all his hockey ambitions .
Chris is just one of the inspirational young athletes being helped by Caesars Foundation, the charitable arm of Caesars Entertainment, to fulfil their potential and bring Olympic and Paralympic medals home to Britain.
Since 1976, SportsAid has helped many of nation's most successful sportsmen and women, including Chris Hoy, Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Ellie Simmonds and Bradley Wiggins.
We are proud to stand alongside the charity.
