Robin Cross

Robin Cross will be known to many in the club - he was a crucial men's first team player for many years in the 70s and 80s - perhaps even nudging into the 90s.  Also he was a larger than life character in the clubhouse (you always had to hold onto your drinking mug!).  Then he helped out with coaching, especially youngsters. A few weeks ago he retired from Loose Primary School, where he had taught for 40 years.  There was a special school assembly for him - based on 'this is your life' where ex pupils, ex teachers and friends came into the hall & did a short speech - with hymns & slide shows.  From the hockey club there was Nigel Swaffer, Wendy Emery and Wendy Carter.  For his service link with MHC - coaching, feeding endless players - Wendy Carter presented him with a suitably inscribed tankard.
