Allan Palmer's History of Streatham Ice Hockey.
Roll of Honour
The following is a list of all of the players who performed for Streatham during the post-war years up to the 1959/60 season, the period of principal concern of this book. Many of the names will be familiar to hockey fans wherever they watch their hockey; among their number will be many of the finest minor pro players of their era. Some of these would have been NHL stars had that league then been as large as it is today. Others will not be quite so well-known, but they, too, played their part in making Streatham one of the finest hockey clubs outside north America. Some will be British players; these I shall asterisk in the hope of shaming those who maintain that British lads did not have a chance in our "Canadian" league and who, by this fallacy, belittle the outstanding achievement Britons who did play in the "Golden Era". Their ranks would have been swollen by other British lads had their development not been arrested by the shut-down to hockey (and everything else) caused by WW2. Some players here noted played more than a hundred games for Streatham; others only one. One such is Maurice Wise. On December 27th 1959 at Brighton, Streatham's regular 'keeper, Gus Adams was struck down with a poisoned hand. Our other netminder, Ray Partridge, was not available. So, at a few hours notice, Maurice took over in the nets for his one National League chance. He played very well in a 5-5 draw and takes a rightful place alongside the likes of Reynolds, Woodall and Betker.
Here, then, is the Streatham "Roll of Honour" - 1946 to 1960. Where we have a team photo it's included, but the order of the players won't necessarily match the text. To see the team photos with the team lists, go to our Teams page.
