Family’s hockey heart

Olympian Andrew Deane still has vivid memories from Seoul in 1988.

Deane’s bronze medal at the 1990 World Cup in Lahore is a more tangible reminder.

He can even recall the handful of Champions Trophy campaigns for Australia without any problems.

But some three decades back, playing asa wide-eyed teenager for theACT at the under-18 hockey nationals all seems a bit of a daze.

Then he spots his son Harry running around in the same colours at the Northern Hockey Centre,and it all comes flooding back to the 48-year-old proud dad.

Momentarily that is.

“Sure –but that was a long time ago,” Deane laughs.

“It feels a bit hardto remember that, but watching them you sort of remember the camaraderie in the group.

“You can see that in the group that Harry’s involved with at the moment.”

Deane played for the Kookaburras that finished fourth at the 1988 Olympic Games in South Korea.

The rewards at the top level gave him more than just wins and losses to reflect on.

“It was just a fantastic opportunity to travel the world and play in a whole lot of different places,” he said.But Launceston was not one of them, he belatedlyregrets.

“I played a lot in Hobart, but I never played here in Launceston,” Deane says.

“It’sa pity because I went for a walk to Cataract Gorge and the markets in town, and I had a great time.

“I’ve been really impressed with the facilities and for a place the size of Launceston, they’re just outstanding.”

Deane has waltzed around close to the sidelines of play the past two days, keeping an eye on the youngest of his two hockey-playing boys.

He swells with pride at the thought, the insurance broker not taking calls while Harry is on the field.

“I just really enjoy watching him and also his older brother play,” Deane says.

“They’re both turning into better hockey players every time they play.”

He watchesevery flat slap, push pass and drag lift.And is quick to share his words of adviceon Harry’s efforts.

“I thought he was a bit tentative and a bit lost in the first half, but he had a better second half –and today was a bit better than yesterday,” Deane said on Saturday.

But not when it comes to re-living the Olympic dream.

“There’s certainly no pressure from my end,” he says.

“I’m just really happy they’re enjoying playing decenthockey, and if it happens, it happens.”
