RIP, Roey’

I was stunned to read Roey (Rosemary Goodridge) has died. I remember her joining Exmouth Ladies Hockey Club all those years ago.

It was always so comforting to know that if I, or others, failed to stop the opposition on the half back line, Roey would be there at the back to do the job for us!

I have not seen her for many a long year, but her fresh young face, full of enthusiasm for her sport, is so vivid in my mind. Rest In Peace, Rosemary.
