It is with profound sadness that we announce that A F M (Con) Conway passed away on 8 September 2012. Con devoted  a great deal of time and effort in the development of the game of hockey in Hong Kong. He was the Chairman of the HKHA Umpires Section from 1970 to 1980, President of the HKHA from 1980 to 2001 and Hon. Life President of the HKHA from 2001 until his death. Among the many other positions that he held in both business and sport he was a Vice President of the Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China, a position he held since 1992.

The Council will plan and announce in due course how the Association will honour this great man for his contributions to hockey in Hong Kong.

For the coming weekend, 15th – 16th September, we request all teams to observe a minute’s silence in Con’s memory before the start of their match. Teams taking part in the Men’s Premier Challenge Cup and Women’s 9-a-side Tournaments should observe a minute’s silence midway through the tournament.
