President's Report The start of winter and the cold polar blast could not temper the joys of A.I.S.C. members during the recent NZISA Queens Birthday sports tournament hosted in Palmerston North by the Central Districts Indians Sports Association. The local club and its small group of members provided excellent facilities and hospitality during the three-day tournament. The cold conditions did mean that everyone had to wrap up warm but that did not deter the many hundreds of supporters and players from attending NZISA QBT that I regard as one of the best sports tournaments. With no club competition hockey that weekend, this allowed many players to travel to Palmerston North and support their regional teams with a little R and R for their families as well. The AISC Womens Netball team successfully played well to retain the NZISA Netball trophy and the Mens A Hockey team after many years of contesting for the Dhyan Chand trophy played exceptionally well and deservedly celebrated success. With international and NHL players competing the pace and high level of hockey at the tournament was appreciated by the umpiring officials and spectators. to all players, coaches and managers and to those who made the tournament teams. Read other articles in this newsletter of the weekend's fantastic feat. Our clubs' teams are featuring well in the Auckland hockey competition, the P1 men are working hard to maintain their slender lead, together with the P3 and C3 men teams, whilst the other grades placed in middle of the ladder, with a good chance of improving on this as the season progresses. Our women's hockey player numbers have increased this season and teams are doing well. Our Youth girl's team is enjoying the season and I look forward to seeing them moving up the grades in time. The executive is keen to have feedback about the club possibly forming a premier hockey team for women in 2010. This, to provide a pathway for our women players who unfortunately leave the club due to the club not having a progression at this level for them. The executive would like to receive early indication of interest from players, potential coaches and managers so we can prepare the necessary structure and application to AHA.

Saluting the past The club achieved its first championship win in 1949 in cricket. That was 70 years ago! Perhaps your parent or grandparent was in that team? This month's snippet Cricket is a sport associated as being natural for people from the sub Indian continent. Why is it then that the Indian Sports Clubs in New Zealand gravitate to and do exceptionally well in hockey? The reason; the early Gujarati Indian settlers (circa 1920-40's) were influenced to play hockey when the British Indian Army and Wanderers Hockey teams toured New Zealand they fascinated and dazzled the New Zealand public with their skills in hockey. When the early founders of present day Indian sports clubs saw the mastery and skill of their Indian counterparts they too wanted to emulate them and took up the sport. Further the game was completed in just over and hour and they could go back to work in there businesses or labouring tasks, unlike cricket that required all day to complete. Over time Indian youngsters became more competitive and desired to play at the highest level hence clubs have up skilled players and become major participants in local the competitions. 2009 Club Hockey Prize giving and Club Awards evening tentative date set for 3rd October. Jayanti Keshaw President Dhyan Chand Trophy ­ QBT Men's A Section The Queen's Birthday Tournament in Palmerston North (Palmy) was always going to be tough, as history had taught us this. The Dhyan Chand had eluded us for many years, no more so than the previous time we had played in the final in 2001 in Palmy itself (for those that remember it)! On the face of it we had a good chance, with a consistent team and quality performances to date. We had also beaten WISC the previous QBT in Rotorua, a feat not achieved since 1995. Nevertheless, Central Districts (CD) were going to be a big challenge (being the defending champions with home ground advantage - playing on passion, heart and adrenalin along with the ever resilient Pukekohe (PISC) who had outdone us on many previous occasions.

The DC was the one piece of silverware that had been sorely missed. The cabinet was bare without it, despite the other trophies already in it. We knew we had to add that one missing link, as the AHA Premier Championship Victory from 2008 was still fresh in the back of our minds providing mental steel for our campaign. There was nothing too different from the approach to weekly club fixtures for this tournament as explained by the coach Wayne McIndoe `Sir Macca'. It was a simple approach to each match at a time, with no complicated tactics or game plans. First up on Sunday morning was Waikato, they had been promoted from the B section having won the previous year. PISC had beaten them 4-2 on Saturday and we overcame Waikato 5-0 in a match which we controlled, dominated possession and defended for the most part outside our circle. Next up we faced a stiffer challenge in PISC who had often been our obstacle over the years. This match proved to be a different encounter from those years. In clinical fashion, we led 2-0 at half time from PC's converted by our Australian premier hockey league drag flick exponent Kishan Patel. The second half saw another period of solid defence, another drag flick from Kishan and a cricket style forward cover drive for goal by Jignesh Kishoor from the top of the D. Final score 4-0. This gave us top spot in the pool and a semi final berth against Wellington A (WISC) who were second in their pool having earlier lost 4-5 to CD. The traditional rivals from years earlier had the better of us prior to 2008 for the last 13 odd years. The matches had often been one-sided battles against WISC (with their starstudded line up including several Black Sticks) with them ending up handsomely on the right side of the ledger. However, this time was different. In a sound performance we scored first by a swift reverse centre from the left side from Johnny Bilkey for our forwards to deflect in. The lead was not sustained, sloppy play allowed WISC back into the match before halftime having had the better of them. The second period saw AISC play well and Kishan slotted a PC that came off the keeper's glove and landed high into the right of the net. They tried to come back late in the match with Nilesh Vaidya in goal pulling off some classy saves - final score 2-1. The result put us in contention for the GRAND PRIZE, a chance at the DC (against PISC) which we had not had since Auckland in 2004. There was an air of confidence in the camp but it was complicated by the fact we had already beaten Pukekohe by 4 goals to nil the day before. Having won convincingly it was always a mental battle to get up and do it all over again. Then there were the added nerves, as none of the players had ever had a taste of a DC victory previously and only a couple had been in a final. PISC was seasoned group of battle-hardened players who had weathered many storms and included several NHL and ex Black Stick players. They more than anyone were able to bounce back from the earlier defeat.

The final started well for AISC with Johnny Bilkey finishing off a dribble into the circle and a brilliant one on one strike against Suresh Wallabh. Then again, a deflection by Bilkey into the bottom left of goal from a Prasant Nathoo hit outside the attacking 25, left AISC 2 -0 up after 12 minutes. It is difficult to know what happened next but it may have been nerves as AISC was up in the final and already had one hand up to grab the DC. Something not experienced for 14 years. This lapse was sensed by PISC and they quickly grabbed hold of it as Kieran Daji put one away through a deflection for PISC to leave a 2-1 score line at halftime. The second half began for AISC as the first had finished with PISC leading the way, making the breaks and attacking AISC. This lead to a quick break down the right by PISC, a centre cross, then another Kieran Daji finish to level the scores. It shook AISC up, and then nervousness began, as uncharacteristic errors crept in and unforced errors occurred. PISC again with 7 or 8 minutes to go intercepted a ball on our right hand defensive 25 and entered the circle at pace as Hitesh Dahya completed an excellent one on one solo finish against Nilesh Vaidya by placing the ball high into the net from his reverse side. A clean hard strike left AISC down 2-3 with 6 minutes on the clock. During this time, Anil Nathoo had waited patiently in the dugout and once PISC went up 3-2 Sir Macca confidently made a strategic change. I am unsure what entered the coach's mind at that point but off came the younger sibling replaced by the older sibling. Right back defender for a striker. Anil drifted from the halfway dugout on the right side of the field into the top left side of the circle unnoticed by PISC defenders who were busy picking up our 3 high strikers, no one saw Anil the 4th striker. The ball somehow came to Anil who collected it outside the left post about mid circle. He then roofed a shot at lighting bolt speed past Wallabh's left glove into the net. This silenced the crowd and stunned AISC and PISC supporters alike with 5 minutes to go. The momentum of the game began to swing with AISC now coming back onto attack and running at PISC looking for gaps and breaking into the circle. PISC too attacked but the full time stayed 3-3.

The team: Sunil Bhana (Capt), Nilesh Vaidya, Rakesh Parsotam, Prasant Nathoo, Anil Nathoo, Milen Patel, Kamlesh Patel, Sanjay Patel, Johnny Bilkey, Kishan Patel, Vijay Patel, Jignesh Kishoor, Nilesh Patel, Wayne McIndoe (coach), Dipak Chhima (manager). Extra time golden goal began with AISC and PISC evenly matched. After the 1st period, the scores were still locked-up and it seemed that strokes were imminent. Kishan could not capitalise from a PC whilst our Nilesh Vaidya too had to make life saving saves to keep the DC within AISC's reach. With less than a minute to go Bilkey dribbled past two defenders into the PISC circle from a quickly taken free hit. He then passed to Jignesh Kishoor on the edge of the circle who then first time slapped the ball across the face of the goal, as the PISC keeper made a desperate lunge to defend; the pass went onto a free Nilesh Patel who touched in the winner. It was jubilation for AISC players, supporters, the stuff dreams are made, AISC lifted the DC after 14 years, in a glorious grand style victory. Tournament Team: Nilesh Vaidya, Rakesh Parsotam, Milen Patel, Johnny Bilkey & Kishan Patel

AISC Dhyan Chand Trophy Record Congratulations to Wayne McIndoe and the Men's QBT A team who have won the Dhyan Chand trophy for the first time since 1995. This was an epic final for those of you who were present and also the greatest QBT final I have personally witnessed. Sunil Bhana becomes the first AISC Men's A winning captain since Hus Narsai (1995 and 1992) to lift the trophy. This DC trophy was established in 1963 and it is steeped in tradition and history. It was first won by WISC in 1963 and 1964 (and many times since then). The late Mohan Naran (father of Jugdish coach and grandfather of Khelan of our youth team) was the first winning AISC captain to claim this trophy in Wellington in 1965. For the record: Auckland wins, winning scorers and venues:

Year 2009 1995 1992 1986 1984 1983 1981 1980 1979 1978 1977 1965 Score 4-3 1-0 2-2 0-0 1-0 1-0 Venue Palmerston North Pukekohe Pukekohe Auckland Rotorua Pukekohe Auckland Christchurch Pukekohe Wellington Auckland Wellington Winning Team & Winning Scorers Auckland vs Pukekohe ­ Nilesh Patel ­ Golden goal scorer Auckland vs Wellington ­ Sanjay Rama ­ Golden goal scorer Auckland vs Wellington ­MP Singh- Equaliser for AISC to win on goal difference Auckland vs Wellington - Won on goal difference Auckland vs Wellington ­ Manoj Daji Scorer Auckland vs Wellington ­ Vasant Lala scorer

Honours must also go to the Women's netball team who have won the trophy for the sixth straight year overcoming Waikato in the second match against them to take the cup. They now move into second place for the most number of consecutive wins for any QBT trophy (Dhyan Chand, B section and Netball) by an AISC team. First place of course remains with the Men's Hockey B section team who won the B section trophy (British Airways Cup) for seven continuous years 1986-1992. "Professionalism, Passion & History"

QBT 2009 ­ Netball This year the netball competition was held at an indoor venue at Palmerston North Girls High School. Although only three teams entered this year, it made for a very interesting tournament. Our first game saw the Waikato girls come out firing. With the final score being 30-32 to Waikato, there was no doubt in our minds that they were out to win this tournament. Our second game against Christchurch saw us settle into our usual playing style and we came away with a 47-9 win. Monday morning saw us take away our second win against Christchurch. With a strong defence and fast, accurate attacking side we won 53-7. The final game of the tournament was a closely contested match between us and Waikato. We went into this game with one and only one outcome in mind, to win. On and off the court, every player gave it their all throughout the full 40 minutes of intense, fierce netball. The final score, 28-33 saw us take a clear win and added `Auckland' to its 6th year on the trophy. The competition this year was of a very high standard and it's good to see new teams making an effort to showcase their talent. We hope to see more teams such as Christchurch, who are an up and coming side to watch, enter the tournament more frequently. We would like to thank Central Districts Indian Sports Club for hosting yet another successful and highly enjoyable tournament. We understand that a lot of planning and preparation goes into hosting an event such as this and Central Districts did an outstanding job. We would also like to thank all of those who came to support us, especially our parents and other family members who consistently cheer us on from the sideline year in and year out. A huge thank you also, to Parvatimasi for spending so much time planning and organising the trip to Palmerston North, not only for the team but also our extended support network. Lastly, the girls would like to thank our coach, Alisha Patel, for putting so much time, effort and support into not only helping us prepare for this tournament but also in helping us to bring back the trophy.

Tournament Team: Nalika Patel, Nisha Kalidas, Alisha Patel, Sangita Ranchhod, Jayshree Magan Sangita Ranchhod Team Captain QBT 2009 ­ Auckland B The Auckland B Team would like to congratulate the Men's A team for winning the Dhyan Chand and the Netball girls for their 6th straight tournament win. Auckland B had Wellington C & Bay of Plenty in their pool, with Wellington C causing an upset on the Saturday by beating Bay Of Plenty. The Auckland B team was made up of mainly younger players, some still playing age group hockey. The nerves were clear in the first game against Wellington C, but Auckland B still held 90% of the possession, but struggled to find a way to the goal as Wellington C kept 11 players behind the ball. Auckland B got a few Penalty Corners with 1 of them turning into a stroke in each half. The Wellington C keeper saved the first one and the second stroke was put high and wide. The game finished nil all, which qualified Wellington C to the next round. It left Auckland B very little time to reflect on the Wellington game as they had to prepare for the game against Bay Of Plenty in 1 hour.

The game seesawed up and down the field with Auckland having more than their share of possession. Just before half time, BOP scored a goal on a counter attack. After half time Auckland B had to take some risks as they needed to win, unfortunately this didn't play off and conceded 2 more goals on the counter. With not much to play for than pride the players had the task of picking themselves up after those 2 games and play Pukekohe B for 5th & 6th. From the start of that game Auckland B looked in control scoring 2 quick field goals. Auckland B continued to dominate the game winning 6 -0. The Auckland B team had not achieved the results they wanted, but the team (especially the younger players) had learnt a lesson in QBT hockey. With most of the players under 19 there are plenty of QBT's ahead for these young players to apply what they have learnt. The team would like to thank Dee for organising and arranging everything for the players and to Pradeep (baby) for taking on the managerial role while down there.

Please note those who do not pay fully after 30 June 2009 also risk having their name published in the newsletter. Deepak Lala Finance, Fundraising and Investment Committee Historians Wanted Right now we need the assistance of at least 4 people to undertake some "light" research for the club. Ideally these people would be researching for old newspaper articles and gathering historical photos in the regard to Auckland Indian Sports Club related activities such as Hockey and Cricket. It might take whoever is interested a few hours at the library looking up old match reports published by Auckland Cricket Association and / or Auckland Hockey Association. Furthermore these people will have the personal satisfaction that their work will be submitted for the AISC Jubilee Publication. Please contact Nagin Lala ([email protected]) if you are able to assist in any way for Publication of AISC Jubilee Book.
