FHC has several “senior” members playing in Auckland, NZ representing Australia in the 2013 Trans Tasman Challenge. This is a three Test Match series which is played every couple of years between New Zealand & Australia. On this occasion, Australia is sending teams in the O’40, O’45, O’50, O’55 & O’60 age groups. Forestville has three players participating in this event, Peter Neagle (Over 60’s) and Peter Garlick & Peter Schembri (Over 55’s).
Later in the year FHC will be represented by Rod Dyson and Ian Macdonald who will be playing in the over 65 Australian team to tour South Korea and Japan.
Overall, FHC has five representatives in 2013 Australian Men's Masters hockey teams out of a total of nine South Aussie’s selected into Australian teams this year. Selections were established at the Australian Men's Masters Hockey Championships held in Hobart last October.
Well done to our members and we wish you all the best.
