Gerry Kale
Gerry Kale
Many in the Yorkshire Hockey family will be sad to learn of the death of Gerry Kale, a long serving member of Wakefield Hockey Club.
In recent years Gerry was best known as the delegate for many of Wakefield’s 1st and 2nd team games at College Grove.
Gerry always provided a warm welcome-drink for umpires on arrival, Lucozade at half time etc. Teams were equally well looked after.
Being a delegate can sometimes been seen as a chore. Not for Gerry, the match sheet was always well prepared and presented.
Above and beyond all that was his friendly face and cheerful chatter.
Our thoughts are with his family and the Wakefield club at a sad time.
Gerry’s funeral takes place at Wakefield Crematorium at 1-30pm this Friday June 27th June.
Peter Thompson Yorkshire Mens League Chairman and YHUA.

world_cup_rotterdam_14.jpgRabobank Hockey World Cup 2014
STARTS TODAY (Saturday 31 May)!!
Two weeks, two stadiums, 24 teams from 15 countries and one event - the Rabobank Hockey World Cup
From 31 May - 15 June, England Men and Women are in The Hague, the Netherlands, for one of the greatest single events in the international hockey calendar. Run as a hockey counterpart to the Olympics and taking place every four years to bridge the gap (so you only have to wait a maximum of two years for more major international hockey), the Hockey World Cup has been around since 1971 for the men's and 1974 for the women's events.

Team England's women's hockey team suffered their first loss of Glasgow 2014 as they were downed 3-0 by defending Commonwealth champions Australia. England 0 (0) Australia 3 (2)Jodie Kenny 11 49 (PC PC)Emily Smith 12 (FG) To find out more about hockey at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, head to the BBC Sport Hockey section here. Gold medallists at the last two Games, Australia lived up to their reputation as favourites in Glasgow as two Jodie Kenny strikes and one from Emily Smith decided the contest. Defeat leaves England needing to beat host nation Scotland in their final Pool B game on Wednesday to ensure their passage through to the last four. They began brightly as Susannah Townsend found Ellie Watton after a mazy run but the latter's effort was well blocked by Australian keeper Rachael Lynch. Two quick scores, however, had England on the back foot as first Kenny converted from a penalty corner on 17 minutes, before Smith capitalised on a mistake from captain Kate Richardson-Walsh shortly afterwards. Maddie Hinch in the England goal was forced into a couple of fine saves from Kenny before the break, while Lily Owsley fired a shot just wide after some superb skill. A green card for Laura Unsworth proved costly 13 minutes into the second half as shortly after she left the field, Kenny slotted home from another short corner. England kept pressing and earned two penalty corners of their own but on both occasions they couldn’t find the target – Sam Quek seeing an effort deflected behind. Georgie Twigg also made her return for England after missing their last game against Malaysia through the injury she sustained in the opening game. Danny Kerry, England Hockey performance director, said after the game: “I was actually really quite pleased with the performance. Australia were better than us defensively and offensively in both circles but I actually felt for large periods of the game we were playing the more constructive hockey. “The reality is that we need to be much tougher in both circles and their corner execution was superior to ours today. We've got to debrief this game and we need to play like we did today against Scotland and it will be a close game.” Midfielder Georgie Twigg added: “It's always a big game against Australia, they have been playing so well recently, but I think we put in a really good performance out there. It's disappointing to lose 3-0 but I think we're really gaining momentum, we put in a really good team performance and we can take that into the next game. “It's small percentages that make such a big difference at the top level and hopefully if we meet them again we have those percentages in our favour. If we can go in against Scotland and produce a performance like that then that would just be brilliant."
