History of Nelson Bay Hockey Club – Preamble:
This history of the Club has been obtained from early documents of the Club, including information to players leaflets, Committee meeting records, Presidents reports at the AGM, newspaper clippings and other documents.
It has been compiled in 2017 and 2018 by Vince Northwood and checked by Lindsay Brown, both Life Members of the Club. This is a work in progress – we envisage the Complete history of the Club will be in four parts;
- Overall Summary of the Clubs Executive members, the Club person of the Year, the name of the Club, and the competitions that were entered for Juniors and Seniors at the time. (See NBHC Timeline below) **
- Past Presidents reports
- Significant documents in the history of the Club
- Significant photos of the Club.
Parts 2, 3 and 4 are still to be compiled at March 2018. And beyond…
**[Note: During the years from 2000 to 2010, the Club had two executives running the overall Club and another running the Nelson Bay component. This was mainly due to the different means of providing insurance for the players.]
