Women's Hockey

Women's Hockey

In recent years little success has attended the efforts of the playing members of the Women's Hockey Club. Last year heavy defeats in competition games had such an effect on enthusiasm and morale that two teams actually disbanded before the end of the season. This season the seniors are a much younger team than usual and we offer some comments on the players.

Doris Johansen (goal).—A new player. Has yet to prove her worth.

Winifreed Lawgood (left full-back). — A hard hitter but must tackle more.

Janet Bogle (right full-back).—Doing good work. Keep stick down and don't hit across mouth of goal.

Noline Anderson (left half).—Tackles well but must learn to clear.

Vesta Emmanuel (centre half).—Very useful on defensive play. Hits well but would improve if she kept more to her own position.

Margaret Wallace (right half).—Useful and energetic player.

Betty Fraser (right wing).—Good fast forward. Centres well.

Mary Frankish (right inner).—Not finite fast enough. I asses well.

Betty Stubbs (centre forward).—Much improved player but still weak on attack. Use left side more).

Nell Allardice (left inner).—A new player who will improve with practice.

Betty Rider (left wing).—A fast determined player. Sometimes spoils her play by retaining possession too long.
