Tributes have been paid to a teenage boy after he sadly took his own life.
Chris Figgis, who played for Canterbury Hockey Club, has been described as an "exceptional defender" following his tragic death on Saturday.
The young player, who was born in 2004, helped win numerous county and regional and titles for the team.
He was one of only a handful of players who went to all four age group finals for the club.
In a statement shared by Canterbury Hockey Club, a spokesperson said: "It is with great sadness that we share the news that one of our young club members, Chris Figgis, took his own life on Saturday.
"Chris played all the way through the junior section at Canterbury Hockey Club and was part of a successful side that won numerous county and regional titles.
"He went on to play in numerous England Hockey national finals - two under-12s (second and first place), two under-14s (fifth and third place), under-16s (third place) and under-18s (second).
"He was one of only a handful that went to all four age group finals.
"In recent years, Chris was a valuable member of our Men's Second XI and featured in the Men's First XI squad last season.
"He was an exceptional defender with great vision and versatility.
"His determination to support his team and ability to play under pressure coupled with his undoubted skill brought great success to the teams he played in."
The club has launched a condolences page, messages from which will be shared with Chris' family.
The statement added: "A minute's silence will be held before all matches this weekend.
"Chris' parents, Sean and Steph, plan to watch the Men's First XI game on Sunday.
"Whilst recognising best intentions, they would prefer to watch the game with a group of close friends and minimal fuss from those in attendance."
