Vale, Kenneth Clarke
September 2, 2014

MCC Hockey Section founding member, Ken Clarke.Members of the MCC Hockey Section have been saddened by the death of Ken Clarke, a member of the hockey squad at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, who passed away on August 31.

Ken crossed from the Ivanhoe Hockey Club upon the foundation of the MCC Hockey Section in 1961 and played in the premiership teams of 1961 and 1962, which elevated the section into the A1 grade (Now Premier League).

He continued playing through the '60s and '70s as captain and coach. He was also an enthusiastic social secretary and archivist.

He was awarded life membership of the section, and he continued to loyally and passionately follow the matches until quite recently, despite indifferent health.

We extend our sympathy to Joan on the loss of a much loved and rather special man.
