Atko came late to hockey, taking up the sport and joining the club (then Bath Civil service) in 1982 in his early 30’s.
He went on to become a Captain, Coach & Umpire for the club every season since.
He once captained the 2nd team to an unbeaten two season run and represented Somerset & West Masters with distinction.
A permanent and leading member of the clubs Ancient Mariners touring side which has toured to Scotland, Holland, Ireland, Spain & Argentina over the last 25 years.
Always the first to volunteer to play, coach & umpire even during his illness this season. A true club legend who will be sadly missed.
I will advise re funeral arrangements once known.
In the meantime our thoughts are with his family & friends
