SYD TANGE TROPHY - 2017

HISTORY OF THE SYD TANGE TROPHY

The Syd Tange Trophy is awarded to the winning State Team of the Under 18 National Tournament.

The trophy is named after Sydney Edward Tange (1917 - 2005).

In 1950, Alwyn Smart and Syd Tange discussed the prospect of a Junior Interstate Competition during a Goodall Cup series in Melbourne. Smart was manager of the St Moritz rink and president of Pirates IHC in Melbourne, while Tange was then Secretary of the NSW Association. The controlling bodies approved, and New South Wales played Victoria during the Goodall Cup series at St Moritz on July 27th, 1951. It was a drawn match, 2-2, and Stamina Apparel Co donated the Stamina Trophy for the competition. Melbourne continued on with its junior program under the guidance of hard-hitting defenseman, Ken Pawsey, who became a member of the first Australian Olympic Team. 

John Caruana asked Sydney Tange to organise a special coaching class in a rink initiative designed to help re-establish NSW ice hockey. The eligible age limit was still 16 years and under. In 1960, more rinks had opened in Newcastle and in Sydney at Bondi Junction and Homebush.  

Five years later in 1969, the National Association introduced a Junior National Series for the Under-18 age band, following the formation and success of the NSW Homebush Juniors IHC among the various prior endeavours to organize interstate matches.  The first series was played in 1969 at the Canterbury ice rink, and the second at Prince Alfred Park. Victoria won both games and John Horsnell of Victoria was named 'Best and Fairest'.  The trophy was presented by three former NSW players and administrators Ken Kennedy, Jim Mortimor and Mark Murphy.  It was their desire to name it after Sydney Tange whose interest in junior development had spanned twenty years.

Tange’s involvement in the sport had stretched back to 1937 when he joined the St George IHC. He played the sport for a decade until 1947, then made his mark as an administrator, first as Secretary-Treasurer of the Club, President of the Glebe IHC, President of the East Monarch IHC, Assistant Treasurer of the New South Wales association, and eventually Secretary-Treasurer for many years. He was awarded Life Membership of the State Association in 1960, elected President from 1964 to 1966, and awarded the Hudson Trophy in 1967.  He was also awarded Life Membership of the National Association in 1962, where he later served as President from 1970 to 1973.
