T’ Tommy Invitational Hockey Gala Ends in Kumasi

The hockey fraternity converged in Kumasi earlier this week for this year’s edition of the annual T Tommy invitational hockey gala at the Kumasi hockey pitch.

 

The annual gala formed part of the hockey association’s activities to immortalize T Tommy for his tremendous contribution to the development of hockey in the Ashanti Region.

 

Over 20 hockey clubs from the length and breadth of the country paraded at the hockey pitch and played to pay homage to one of their own who gave up the ghost in April 1989.

 

In his own small way during very trying times, he contributed towards the
promotion of the game of hockey through his enthusiasm and commitment to ensuring regular training sessions.

 

He also assisted most young players financially anytime it was to do with hockey. He was a great big brother to his teammates and a big sports figure who played hockey and soccer in particular, for Opoku Ware School (Owass) and Wesley College (Wesco).

Due to his massive contribution to the game and nurturing of most the present hockey administrators, his compatriots and friends decided to commemorate his name by institutionalizing an annual gala called the T Tommy hockey tournament in Kumasi.

 

The annual T' Tommy hockey gala has become the longest and most sustained hockey event in the country and has fulfilled its objective of immortalizing name which has served as a mentor to many younger ones in Ashanti region.
Some of the architects that saw to the institutionalization of the T Tommy annual hockey gala are; brothers Sabattah and Sabattah Kowus (IRS), Richard Akporkavie (Veep, GHA), Isaac Boamah (Game man), Victor Anane Frimpong (Dollar), Paa Kwasi Fabin (now soccer coach), Dennis Amoah Ababio (Dennicon) and Yaw Sarpong Manu (Kalala) who was a great supporter and inspirer.

 

The tournament is largely sponsored by the Abankroh family with support from James Amoo-Gottfried.
