Captains Q&A: Matt Clarkson

Kingston Kestrels Captain Matt Clarkson

Kingston Kestrels Captain Matt Clarkson

This week’s Captains Q&A is with Matt Clarkson from the Kingston Kestrels.

Another one of our international players, Matt is one of the Alternate Captains for the GB team, and is looking forward to qualifying for his first Paralympics tournament.

Q. What position do you play?
A. Defence

Q. What originally got you into sledge hockey?
A. I was approached by [BSHA Chairman and GB player] Matt Lloyd whilst training in the gym in 2006. At the time I was looking at getting into Powerlifting. This was fortunately the second time that I had been approached to play Sledge Hockey; I had originally been invited to try the sport as a youngster but it was unheard of and my only interest at that age was football. Anyway I attended the next training session in Hull after meeting Matt and have never been away, the sport gripped me instantly. People are put off by training times but if you have a passion for the sport you make the effort and adapt to the times.

Q. What’s your favourite thing about the sport?
A. It’s all round brilliant! A fast and physical, team sport where pretty much anything goes. What more would you want? The feeling of scoring for your team or being involved in a big hit just creates such a buzz.

Q. What’s been the highlight of your sledge hockey career so far?
A. Undoubtedly winning Bronze in the 2013 Pool B World Championship in Nagano, Japan which saw Great Britain go on to the 2014 Winter Paralympic Qualification Playoff in Turin, Italy. Other highlights include, scoring on my international debut, becoming GB Assistant Captain and various domestic achievements such as winning the British Sledge Hockey League with my local club Kingston Kestrels.

Q. What other sports do you play?
A. I’m not involved in any other sport at a competitive level and as mentioned I was looking at getting into Powerlifting but decided to pursue Sledge Hockey.

Q. Do you follow any other forms of hockey, and if so, who do you support?
A. In recent years I have taken more interest in Ice Hockey and do watch NHL, EIHL and EPL mostly on TV however I occasionally attend Hull Stingrays home games when the opportunity arises. With football getting the limelight in England I’ve grown up being a football fan in all honesty.

Captains Q&A: Russ Willey

Russell Willey, Cardiff Devils Sledge Hockey Captain

Russell Willey, Cardiff Devils Sledge Hockey Captain

In celebration of the Cardiff Devils reaching a fantastic 500 followers on Twitters, this week’s Captains Q&A is with their captain, Russell Willey.

Russell has been to several Paralympic games, both summer and winter. He was crowned World Weightlifting Champion 3 times and also won the European Powerlifting title twice.  All that before taking up sledge hockey!

Q. What position do you play?
A. Forward – Mainly centre but occasionally on the wing.

Q. What originally got you into sledge hockey?
A. It’s a long story but briefly, I was friendly with Andy McNulty a former GB Player and founder of the Cardiff Club. In 1996 just before I was about to go to the Atlanta Paralympic Games he asked me if I wanted to play Sledge Hockey and I said I’d call him when I got back. I never did. Then just before I was due to go to the Sydney Paralympics in 2000 he collared me again. This time he took my number and rang me as soon as I got back. About a month later I tried it and was hooked.

Q. What’s your favourite thing about the sport?
A. Being part of a team and the Physical contact.

Q. What’s been the highlight of your sledge hockey career so far?
A. Representing GB at my 6th Paralympic Games in Turin in 2006.

Q. What other sports do you play?
A. Nothing now, but before I took up Sledge Hockey I competed in Powerlifting representing GB at 5 Summer Paralympic Games between 1984 and 2000. During that time I was 3 times World Champion and 2 times European Champion.

Q.Do you follow any other forms of hockey, and if so, who do you support?
A. No – until I took up Sledge Hockey I had no interest in Ice Hockey and had never seen a game. Even now whilst I enjoy watching Sledge Hockey, I’ve no real interest in Ice Hockey.

Russell and the rest of the Cardiff Devils have their next home game on July 5th against Manchester Phoenix.  You can follow the team on Facebook or Twitter.
