Sports award recognition for Katie Roe

We're delighted that rugby player and Ocean Kinetics employee, Katie Roe, has received national recognition of her sporting talents at the recent Scottish Rugby Club Awards. The awards were held in Edinburgh on Friday with Katie picking up the award for North League Player of the Season 2018/19.

At Ocean Kinetics, Katie specialises in fabrication, especially oil and gas pipelines, but on the pitch, Katie plays number 10 and has captained the Shetland Women's Rugby team for several years.

The Scottish Rugby Club Awards celebrate the players, coaches, match officials and volunteers from the domestic game in Scotland. The awards provide an opportunity to recognise the commitment and talents of those involved across the grassroots game.

Speaking at the awards, Katie said “It’s been a great season for us up north, we won the league this season and beat some good teams along the way. I’ve been the captain for the last few seasons and I’ve really enjoyed that but it’s about the whole team, so thank you to them.”

From all of us at Ocean Kinetics, congratulations to Katie on this fantastic achievement. You can find out more about Katie in this feature on the Shetland.org website.
