After 33 years of umpiring Alan has decided to hang up his whistle. Originally umpiring for Alton, Alan switched allegiance and joined the ‘Gregarians’ ladies hockey team until they joined forces to become ‘Haslemere Hockey Club’. Alan has umpired the ladies week in and week out for about 20 years and remembers many players when he joined were themselves ‘Juniors’!!!
A fitting game to end with on Saturday with the Ladies 4 XI playing away to Alton. HHC would like wish Alan all the best has he moves on to pastures new. We hope to still see him on the Hampshire circuit for many more years to come.
