Sydney Smith 1914-2008
Sydney Smith has sadly passed away aged 94. Sydney was a towering figure in the club. He was Men's 1st team captain in his heyday, and he continued playing into his late 60s in the early 1980's. He then became a stalwart of lower men's teams by becoming a regular and dedicated umpire. He served on club committees for more years than anyone can remember, and was made a Life Vice President in 1979. He will be sorely missed.
A few photographs of Sydney's 90th birthday are presented - celebrated in the old clubhouse.
THE FUNERAL WILL TAKE PLACE AT VINTERS PARK CREMATORIUM (MAIDSTONE) ON FRIDAY 21 NOVEMBER, 1-15pm. THE FAMILY WOULD LIKE TO MEET FRIENDS AFTERWARDS AT THE HOCKEY CLUBHOUSE.
