Month: June 2014


It is going to be a busy day with FHC celebrating our 80th birthday and also hosting H’Vic’s Women’s Round vs Altona. The FHC Women’s Premier League & Reserves Teams will be wearing pink socks and hosting a “pink” themed afternoon tea. As part of Women’s Round, Hockey Victoria would like to celebrate and recognise the skills and abilities of our top female athletes, by awarding a Most Valuable Player medallion to one player from each of the WPL and WPLR  matches.  During the Premier League after noon tea at 4.00pm Hockey Victoria has asked Nicole Virtuoso to present the medals and the umpires for these matches will vote and advise Nicole the recipients. The Reserves medal will be presented after the game on the side of the pitch in front of the membership. FHC’s life members Lynn Gale, Bobbie Speed, Lynn Muller and Chris Henderson will be invited to attend to present a certificate or appreciation to a group of Women who have and continue to significantly contribute to the club on a volunteer capacity. President Rodney Johnstone will be in touch with the recipients this week to attend if they can at 4pm Sat 21st June....

The Banter will be featuring recollections from past members in each edition. Eric Thomas was honoured with a life membership in 2004. His accolades include (TREASURER: 1943-47, VAHA DELEGATE: 1943-47, PRESS SECRETARY:  1945-47, SOCIAL TREASURER: 1948, U/AGE COACH: 1945-54, 57, 93 (produced 6 future mens club champions), VIC COLTS: 1946, MENS CLUB CHAMPION: 1945-1946). Eric is currently coaching at Kew hockey club close to where he resides. WRITTEN BY ERIC THOMAS: A few interesting things happened in the early days of the club.  I am the only player left from my 1941 team.  B2 Grade. Some players left their mark as standouts. Including  Fred Page, Buck Sigley, Bob Blackbell. Ron Govan, Stan Govan, Jack Hull, Ken Yarwood, Bill Youell. All were top class players of those days. My second year found me selected in the A team (aged 16).  Found the going tough as I was full back  defending against fit grown men but got used to it and started retaliating with reasonable success.  A few years later the club numbers dwindled to 10 members.  Nine players and the non playing President. At our AGM we contemplated withdrawing the club and winding up the club. This was very upsetting to me as I loved hockey and also the Club atmosphere of fellow friendly players. At this stage Buck was secretary and I was treasurer. We voted to keep the club going with our diminished numbers...

FHC has been very fortunate to secure the services of the highly experienced Jarrod Lester to coach our men for at least the next two seasons. After a decade of PL coaching, Jarrod took the 2018 season off to re-charge his batteries, and is now very keen to “help continue the growth of the current group”.
