Past and present students of the St. Stanislaus College have continued the school’s long and proud hockey tradition, by taking the bold step of creating Guyana’s newest Hockey Club. The ‘Saints Hockey Club’ was established on the 2nd of February 2012, when a five member executive committee was elected to chart the way forward for the new club.
Hockey was first introduced to the school in 1973, by former national captain Chris Fernandes. Fernandes created an outstanding team of youngsters who went on to play unbeaten on a school tour of Barbados and Trinidad & Tobago later that decade. Those players eventually formed the GCC Hockey Team and would go on to dominate local hockey during the 80’s and 90’s. Captain of that unbeaten Saints team was Andy Gouveia who teamed up with Troy Peters during the 90’s to form what would eventually be known as the Hikers Hockey Club.
The Hikers Hockey Club has since adopted St. Stanislaus College and has been running hockey classes at the school for a number of years. The past and current students of the school now feel they have the numbers and capacity to venture out on their own and form their own independent club.
Those elected were: President- Joel Hunte, Vice President- Marcia Persaud, Treasurer- Rushelle Matthias, Secretary- Yonnick Peters and Assistant Secretary/Treasurer- Hilton Chester.
The new club’s first order of business will be registering with the Guyana Hockey Board and securing uniforms to compete in the Board’s upcoming John Fernandes Second Division outdoor league. They also plan to go on an aggressive recruitment drive for former and current students of the school.
