We were very sorry to learn that Margaret Ellison (Emmott) died recently after a long illness. Margaret was a long term member of Sevenoaks Hockey Club, joining us from Essex in 1964 and thereafter being an ever-present in the Ladies 1st team for the next 15 years. Margaret played right wing both for the Club and for Kent. She was very fast and scored some excellent goals – well over 100 for Sevenoaks. She played in all our Seven-a-Side tournaments, and in the Burnt Ash mixed Tournament at Crystal Palace for Sevenoaks. She is remembered as always being cheerful and reliable and a good team member. During those years, any team representing Sevenoaks always had Margaret in it.
We have not heard details of the funeral arrangements but will pass these on if we can. Our thoughts and sympathy are with Margaret’s family at this sad time.
