Martin was awarded the EHF Diploma of Merit in 2005 in recognition of his fantastic work for the EHF.
EHF President Marijke Fleuren said “We are very sad today hearing of the sudden death of Martin. We extend our sincere condolences to his wife Beryl and family. Martin was the epitome of a hockey volunteer, giving his free time for the betterment of our sport.
His calm, logical approach earned him the respect of all of those who had the pleasure to work with him.
I had the pleasure of meeting Martin and Beryl many times, we had such companionship together.
Today we have lost a friend, a colleague and a gentleman.”
