David Herring

The League very much regrets to advise of the death of its Secretary, David Herring, on 2nd November 2014.

David had served the League for nearly forty years, initially as Surrey representative but for most of that period as its Secretary.

He will be sorely missed by all in hockey to which he gave so much.
