Met the new GM- Ray Hocking

The Belconnen Magpies would like to welcome Ray Hocking who started this week in the role of General Manager. The club was very excited about his appointment and knows he will continue to uphold Belconnen’s professional reputation. Ray joins us with a wealth of experience in sports administration with a background in many different league, umpire and AFL development roles.

In Cairns Ray was responsible for umpire development but after many years in this role he was keen for a change. Ray was an elite umpire and enjoyed the challenges that were associated with umpiring but as time went on the stress that umpiring caused the body forced Ray to retire from the highest level.

Ray has experience working with AFLVictoria, AFL NT and AFL Queensland.

Ray has a great cricketing ability playing over in NZ for 4 year unfortunately he damaged his knee playing in a AFL competition over there and was forced to come back to Australia for surgery.

We believe that with the Sports administration experience Ray brings with him, the Belconnen Magpies will continue to go from strength to strength and maintain a high level of professionalism within AFL Canberra.

We wish Ray all the best in his role with the Magpies
