The MHC had made it clear that the merger of its affiliates take place no later then December 31 this year.
This is to facilitate the requirements of the FIH.
But some personalities within MHC are making it difficult for the mergers at states that have yet to do so take place in accordance with the stipulated dates.
Those who are a single entity now, either by choice or design are Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Kedah, Malacca, Johor, Sarawak, Sabah, Armed Forces and PDRM.
Those yet to merge are Selangor, N.Sembilan, Pahang , Perak and Terengganu.
While Kelantan and Perlis never had a women hockey association.
It is now learnt that two mergers of tje states was thwarted by a strange request of wantibg equal number of positions by the womens section.
It is strange that this demand is coming from a third party and not directly from tje administrators of the state HA.
Watch this space for further developments....
