Gilbert Read 
It is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of Mr Gilbert Read, long serving Chairman of Vauxhall Hockey Club. Gilbert was well known throughout the hockey family and will always be remembered for his many stories, sharp wit and that happy glint in his eye. His association with Vauxhall HC goes back farther than many of the current members can recall but he bridged the gap between old and new. He was progressive and always ready to embrace and instigate change for the better. We will miss him.... and his legendary moustache.
