Welcome to Western Districts Hockey Club

Western is a hockey club where top level hockey and social activities go hand in hand. We have our own home pitch and clubhouse (one of very few clubs in Auckland who do) and this helps create our unique Western atmosphere. We welcome players of all ages and ability and have a team for everyone. Why not come along and see for yourself?
 

2017 AGM - Wednesday 8th March

WDHC is holding their Annual General Meeting at the Avondale clubrooms on Wednesday 8th March at 7pm. We encourage all our members to come to this meeting. We will be appointing a new president this year as Rose Bainbridge will be stepping down from her role.
 
For those of you wanting to take on positions on this year's committee (there are always spots available!), please ensure you attend. If you have any questions regarding this meeting, please contact the Club Secretary
 

Lomas Matheson - Hon Vice President WDHC

 With sadness we record the passing of Lomas Matheson a stalwart of WDHC and an Hon Vice President of Western. Lomas you could say was one of the old guard starting his playing career in the early in 1950’s with Owai Rovers which formed part of the Western Club. Lomas was certainly a hard and dedicated club member and had a huge involvement with bulding the club rooms at Ken Maunder Park and the building of the Rob Henry Training Pavilion which we still own at Ken Maunder.
 
Lomas played in the Senior mens teams for many years and was part of the 1963 team that won the Auckland competition.  Lomas’s son Mark also played for Western and I believe they were the 2nd father and son combination to play in the Senior team together.  Lomas was very proud of this feat.
 
I do personally recall playing in some teams with Lomas and remember him whilst short in statue was very fast and skillful player.  It doesn’t seem that long ago but for those that can remember the days of the “Roll In” I can tell you Lomas was expert at this technique and I know he taught me a few tricks about the roll in. 
 
We send our thoughts to Mark and his sister Diane at this sad time.
