Hockey Club

In the last match of the season against Trentham Army, the Senior team scored a substantial victory, winning by 5 goals to 2.

Several Third Grade players were included in the Senior team and all of them played a very good game although they showed a tendency to slacken up badly towards the end of the second, spell. Stacey, playing at centre forward in place of Ivor Ting, and Peter Froome at goal, both played a good game.

The season for the hockey club has been quite successful and from the point of view of representative honours, perhaps one of the most successful. Ivor Ting, Ken Kiddle, and Bruce Hands were all selected and although Peter Froome was twice selected he was unable to play. Peter Froome's achievement was outstanding since this is his first season of hockey.

The prospects for next season are very hopeful and from the play in last match the Third Grade team should be able to supply some useful material for the Senior team.
