Greater Accra Hockey schedules new dates for GALA and The League
Greater Accra Hockey Association has scheduled new dates for its activities this year. The association earlier stated that the 2018 Greater Accra Hockey GALA would commence on the 28th of April whilst the league kickstart on the 11th of May.
According to the associations secretary, Mr. Isaac Graham, the move was done as a result of the death of a key veteran of the sport. He said “the association rescheduled the date because it wanted to honour the death of one veteran whose immense contribution to Greater Accra Hockey and the sport cannot be overlooked.”
He added “the association upon thorough discussion has settled that 2018 GALA would be played on 11th & 12th of May whiles The League which was due to commence on the 11th of May has been rescheduled to start on the 18th of May. Fixtures would be communicated to you as we await confirmation of participation from Trustees and Veteran Hockey Clubs.”
Finally he added that this move would help teams prepare financially and physically for the events. “We look forward for a prosperous year and so the teams should prepare adequately for the event. We wish them well” he noted.
