Stanley Howard Shoveller (2 September 1881 – 24 February 1959) was a field hockey player, who won a gold medal with the England team at the 1908 Summer Olympics in London. Twelve years later, when Antwerp hosted the 1920 Summer Olympics, he once again captured the gold medal with the Great Britain and Ireland squad, at age 39.
Shoveller played his club hockey for Hampstead & Westminster. He was known as "the Prince of centre forwards" and "the immortal centre" for his prolific goal scoring - it's been estimated to be 'well over 500', remarkable in an era of 4-2-3-1 and sweepers.
