 MADANG for the first time has their representative in the national hockey train-on squad after a decade away from the sport.

PNG Hockey Federation secretary Thomas Kahai said that it was the first time Madang had a representative in the team, including Manus and East New Britain.

Defender Ivan Aulebo, Bonny Samen jnr (midfielder) and striker Gabriel Kubai will fly the flag of Madang at the hockey stage.

Sapau Tapo and Andrew Roama will be representing East New Britain while Sosogan Palaiap and Kawaten Popoua will fly the Manus flag in the hockey national training squad.

These players were part of the 30 men squad announced after the national championship held in Madang last month. 

President Kaluwin Potuan said the squad would commence training next week Tuesday for two months before the final 18 players would be named for the Oceania Cup in New Zealand from Oct 26-Nov 2.

The training venue for the Port Moresby-based players would be at Sir John Guise stadium Sir Ignatius Kilage Stadium for Lae players which would come under the guidance of local association presidents.

Potuan said all players should prepare their K3,000 levy fee and their passport.
