Barry Middleton has been voted as UK Player of the Year by the Hockey Writers’ Club for a record third time.

The former Doncaster captain scooped the 2010 award after leading England to the Commonwealth Games semi-finals and impressing for top German club An der Alster.

The 27-year-old equals the record of Karen Brown after previously winning the award in 2004 and 2007.
