"Scoop" on Hockey Preparations

"Scoop" on Hockey Preparations

The Club has entered a Senior A. two Senior It's, a Junior, a Third and a Fourth Grade team in the Wellington competitions. It is to be hoped that the Association will confirm the entries, as the extra Senior B team should help to raise our standard of play. Besides, with two Senior It teams In the field, the Senior A team will be better fed than in past years. It might, as a result, recapture the Sedan Stick from Auckland.

Although the numerical strength of the Club has not materially increased, there are over twenty-five new members. Unfortunately, sodden grounds have not permitted the holding of an official practice and the selectors will be seriously handicapped at the outset. However, about 20 players attended an Impromptu practice on 9th April—evidence that they were enthusiastic and keen.

Eight of the 1937 Senior A team are available. Strutters and Inner have left and Ralph Keen has been injured.

The claims of the following aspirants to the Find XI requires serious consideration by the selectors: — Stan. Brathwaite, Auckland and New Zealand University representative, 1937. Inside right: M. Christie, a fit, promising player who may become a good right wing: Kirhkam, right half; H. Oliver. 1937 Junior goale: Pitt, inside left: J. Thompson, centre forward (from Dannevirke: Macintosh, left half-back: Ives, left wing, previous!' a Senior A player, but now in need of training: and Bryan.

This year the Club is to have both practical and theoretical training. It also proposes to revive smoke concerts and other kindred social activities, which are an integral part of any well-conducted club.
