Hockey News FIH throws Pakistan out of Pro League Hockey

first_imgLausanne: Pakistan was thrown out of the inaugural FIH Pro League Hockey after it pulled out of the first three matches of the tournament, the international federation said on Wednesday. The International Hockey Federation (FIH) said that Pakistan informed the world body on Wednesday that it was no longer able to play the first three games planned against Argentina, Australia and New Zealand, citing “inevitable circumstances”.Therefore, the FIH has taken the decision to suspend Pakistan from the 2019 FIH Pro League in order not to jeopardize the regularity and the smooth delivery of the event, which kicked-off successfully last Saturday in Valencia, Spain.“It is regretful that Pakistan has decided only now to withdraw from the first games of the FIH Pro League. Consequently, FIH were left with no other option than suspending Pakistan from the rest of the competition’s season,” FIH CEO Thierry Weil said in a statement.“At this stage, I would like to thank all participating National Associations who had adapted their schedules to support a solution for Pakistan to join the competition this year,” it said. Pakistan hockey has been facing financial problems for some time now which has affected its team’s participation in major tournaments.Pakistan was on the verge of pulling out of the recent World Cup in Bhubaneswar before a cricket franchise decided to sponsor the hockey team for the mega event in India last December.The non-participation of Pakistan will have no impact on the competition format. The eight men’s teams of the FIH Pro League will play each other on a home and away basis from January to June, the world body said.The tournament resumes on Friday with the men’s game between Spain and Great Britain.The FIH Pro League is a brand-new competition and part of FIH’s new event portfolio. It is a global home and away league involving many of the world’s leading hockey nations, men and women, for a six-month period.India is also not a part of the tournament due to a different reason.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Hockey News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Rifle-shooter Richard `Dickie’ Fields laid to rest after moving tributes

first_imgA SOFT-SPOKEN man with tact and grace is how the late Senior Counsel and Guyana National Rifle Association (GuyanaNRA) Executive Richard `Dickie’ Berkeley Fields will be remembered.His funeral service took place at Christ Church on Waterloo Street yesterday.The former rifle-shooter, who was a lawyer by profession as well as the Honorary Consul to Finland and Italy, was also an avid lover of Jazz, according to one of his eulogists Nigel Hughes.Meanwhile, president of the Guyana NRA Mahendra Persaud contended that the loss of such a wise and fierce competitor will surely have a gigantic impact.“He was one of the few Guyanese to have made the Queen’s Final (at Bisley). He is the only Guyanese out of three West Indian shooters to shoot 150 out of 150 in the Benson and Hedges short range Cup.”The former life member of the Surrey Rifle Club and one-time vice-president of the British Commonwealth Rifle Club was known affectionately as ‘Dickie’ Fields and was the runner-up Sportsman-of-the-Year in 1999.Persaud continued, “He was a soft-spoken person. You could go to him at any time for advice and the advice was very short, to the point and with a legal interpretation behind it.”He was a wonderful friend, a wonderful team mate and one of the best team shooters I knew, and I knew a lot of people and he was an exceptionally good guy, both on and off the ranges,” Persaud said.Fields started his shooting career in early 1950s at the rifle range at Thomas Lands with his uncle. After being in Queen’s College Scouts he joined the Queen’s College Cadet Corps where he continued to excel.He then went on to be a member of the British Guiana Volunteer Force (BGVF) where he attained the rank of 2nd Lieutenant before he left to study Law in England in 1961.On his return in 1967, Richard Fields was admitted to the Bar. In 1974, he joined the Guyana National Rifle Association where he soon became one of the top riflemen in Guyana and the Caribbean.last_img
