It is with great sadness that Notts Hockey reports that Phil Wyville, of North Notts Hockey Club, has lost his long battle with cancer at the age of just 28.
Phil was a promising junior and, even when diagnosed, continued to turn out regularly when he could, at whatever level spaces were available. During one of his remission periods he also took on the captains role for one of the teams I played for.
His ‘never give up’ attitude and drive to help anyone and everyone that he could, meant I was honoured the he received the NNHCs Endeavour Award in my final season as club president.
Although I may have moved on from NNHC I still have many friends there, as I know did Phil, and he will be sorely missed by us all.
Taken far too early, he leave a wife, Sam and baby daughter, Maisie. Our thoughts are with them and the rest of their families at this time.
