HOCKEY DISPUTE

INCIDENT AT WHANGAREI O.C. WHANG AREI, Tuesday. A scheduled hockey match between Old Boys-United and Mangapai did not eventuate in the Whangarei Hockey Association's senior competition on Saturday, Mangapai refusing to take the field when it was announced that Mr. D. Thomson was to be one of the umpires. Earlier in the week, when the association reprimanded Mangapai for leaving the field when one of its players was ordered off by Mr. Thomson, the club captain, Mr. C. Holland, intimated that his team was unwiling to play in any matches controlled by Mr. Thomson and stated that it therefore had no option but to withdraw from the competition. Association members, however, urged the captain to ask his team to reconsider its decision. On Saturday the Mangapai eleven assembled at Kensington Park ready to play, but when it was found that Mr. Thomson had been assigned to the match remained adamant in its decision not to take the field. The question will be discussed at the next meeting of the association executive.
