3rd MayMichael Vans Agnew

Sussex Hockey Association is saddened to hear of the death earlier this month of Michael Vans Agnew, a vice president whose family has a long association with the county.

Michael, who was 94, also played international hockey for Scotland and was well known in Sussex hockey circles. A left half, he captained Brighton & Hove and Sussex in the 1950s and after his playing days were over he devoted himself to golf, becoming a scratch player and later captain and then president of Sussex Golf. He was also a member of the R & A rules committee for golf and a referee at the Open for many years.

Michael’s elder brother Bill also played international hockey for Scotland and was first doctor and then coach to the Great Britain men’s team at the 1972 Olympic Games.

Michael, was a noted local businessman, joining Diamond Edge - a scissor sharpening company - in Brighton in 1947 when he returned from the war in the Far East. In 1954 he founded Capital Hair & Beauty, now the UK's largest independent supplier to hairdressers, beauty therapists and nail technicians and run by the family.

His funeral took place this week and the county sends its sincere condolences to his widow Margaret and the Vans Agnew family at this difficult time.

23rd MarSouth Clubs Women's Hockey League

The SCWHL Committee has taken the views of its participating Clubs into consideration and has decided that it is not possible to resume League Hockey for the Season 20/21 in any meaningful way. As the first half season matches had not been completed by the time Hockey had to stop completely; the 20/21 Season has been declared null and void. Clubs will of course be able to play friendlies subject to relaxation of COVID restrictions during the Summer as they choose.

The two teams at the top of Division 1 when Hockey was halted are the same two teams who finished 2nd and 3rd in Div. 1 for season 19/20 and they are London Wayfarers 1 and Witney 1. Both Clubs will be nominated to EH as the teams from SCWHL that should be promoted into the EH Conference for what we hope will be the start of Season 21/22 in September 2021.
