Elliott is one of four successful candidates to receive awards of £500 towards training and competition costs for 2011.

Grants were awarded by an independent selection panel for a scheme set up by Sport Haslemere and Haslemere Sports Association to provide assistance to young sports people within the Haslemere area. Applicants have to show they have potential to represent Great Britain at future Olympic or international events. The scheme is funded by various local organisations and small businesses.

The "Create A Star" scheme will run initially over five years and current recipients will need to demonstrate annually they are meeting their objectives.

Elliott was a deserved recipient of this award having been a member of Surrey's county team, winning a place in the England Hockey High Performance Centre and progressing to Wessex Leopards Futures Cup U18 team representing the South of England.

Congratulations Elliott!
