Passing of Former Club Member

Bill Arnold

Sadly I have to report that another of our Life members has died.

Bill was 95 and passed away peacefully in a Stapenhill Nursing Home last week.

Bill joined Burton Hockey Club in 1952; during his career with the Club he was better known for his umpiring than his ability on the pitch. He loved the Brewsters'  Easter Tours, particularly to Bournemouth, and is pictured below (far right) with his friends old and young in a pre match photo..early seventies..

Ken Stanyon, Peter Ellis, Carlton Smith, Chris Elliott, Chris Smith, Bob Anderson, (back row) Davie Anderson, Tony Collier, Geoff Berry, Mike Holmes, Eddie Appleby  and Geoff Smith. (front row)

Bill religiously  gave great attention to detail  and was always smartly turned out.......he became President of DCHA in 1971 and he was very proud that in 1972 , during his tenure as President of Burton,  the Mens 1st XI  won the Midlands Club Championship........

Thank you Bill for all your contributions....  RIP    Willie
