Long standing member of Doncaster Hockey Club, Arthur McCartney has passed away due to long term illness.  Our deepest sympathy go to Arthur’s family, may he rest in peace.

Both Arthur’s sons, Cameron and Malcolm played hockey at Doncaster, with Cameron playing Premier League goal keeper.

Arthur passed peacefully after a long illness at Austin Hospital, his family and close friends beside him.  Dearly loved father of Cameron and Malcolm, father-in-law of Anne and 'DP' (grandfather) of Ewan and Annabel.
