We are very pleased to announce that earlier today, the NSW Minister for Sport and Recreation, The Hon Gabrielle Upton MP, announced a $5,000 Government grant for the 2013 Men's Masters National Hockey Championships.
Sports funding is always difficult to come by, but especially so when it is for Masters sport. We are extremely proud of being recognised in this manner.
After a number of years reporting on major events with our long term International hockey reporter - the late Bruce Hamilton, Ken Vaughan will be reporting on the Sydney Masters event. Ken worked part time for AAP and News Ltd from 1976 - 1989 and very few hockey people realise that the match of the day coverage every Sunday in the Telegraph was written by Ken. Additionally he wrote for the Daily Mirror, Hockey Circle and later for fieldhockey.com based in the UK. He has reported on National teams as an assistant to Bruce Hamilton since 1995, and he covered such events as the Hockeyroos Champions Trophy series in Canberra and Madrid, and Youth Olympics for Agencie France Press (AFP).
