Our member, sports journalist Wayne Hardman, was recently honoured by the Belfast Giants ice hockey team for his broadcasting service to the sport.  

In April, at the ice hockey championships in Nottingham, the Giants’ General Manager, Todd Kelman, presented him with a Lifetime Support gold medal.

Wayne’s voice is familiar at ice hockey matches in Britain and Ireland.
