David Harte has been nominated for FIH World Goalkeeper of the Year for a third successive year, looking to win the award for a third successive year.
This year, Harte will compete in the hugely competitive category against Quico Cortes of Spain, GB’s George Pinner, current European silver medallist with Belgium Vincent Vanasch, and Olympic gold medallist Juan Vivaldi from Argentina.
Commenting on the nomination, the Kinsale man – who helped SV Kampong win the Dutch Hoofdklasse this term – said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be nominated. This is the third year in a row for me and each year the feeling just increases, knowing what a prestigious award it is.
“It’s been a great year, qualifying for the World Cup with Ireland and being named goalkeeper of the tournament at World League 2. It would mean everything to win; I dedicate my life towards goalkeeping and hockey and it’s something I love to do”.
