*** Men's Masters Review:  

Queensland State Mens Masters Hockey Championships were held recently at various venues and State age teams were selected to represent Queensland later in the year at the Australian mens masters championships to be held in Adelaide S.A.

Age groups now start from over 35 then o'40, o'45', o'50, o'55, o'60, o'65, o'70, and this year a o'75 Team has been selected for the first time to compete against other states at the c'chips. These o'75 " youngsters "are remarkable and a credit to themselves. Their competitive edge is still as strong as an A grade player and their enjoyment and sportsmanship is a sight to behold.

Bill Bennett (deceased) from All Stars Hockey Club (himself a Australian Masters Player), introduced a couple of Tweed Border players to o'40s Masters hockey in Brisbane in 1990 and since then numerous local players have participated in Masters competitions in both Brisbane and more recently the Gold Coast during the week and some have been selected in previous state teams.

Those selected from our association (past and present) to represent Queensland Mens Masters this year are as follows:-

DAVID BROOKS  O'35   ( ex Redbacks/Veterans Junior).
SEAN READ  O'45'S   ( Casuarina ex Pottsville/Waratahs).
ROBERT BARNES  O'55   (Mullumbimby ex Kingscliff).
ROD HURST  O'60   (Brisbane, ex Rovers).
RICK HEWITSON  O'65   (Mullumbimby ex Redbacks/Veterans).
BOB TINDALE  O'70   (ex Pottsville,Redbacks/Veterans).
NOEL CONDON  O'75   ( ex Redbacks/Veterans).

* Previous long term Qld age reps, JOHN ROBINSON (Mullumbimby) and GRAEME ALCORN (ex Pottsville) took part in their c'chips but unfortunately injuries didn't help their cause in seeking selection this year.

All Queensland Mens Masters teams and other associated information can now be seen on  Queensland Mens Masters Hockey website.
