Biography

Sandy Archer left England for Canada at the age of three and learned his hockey in Winnipeg where he was twice a Manitoba All-Star selection. He was one of a group of 14 players that included fellow Olympian Jimmy Foster, who returned to play in England in the 1930’s without first obtaining clearance from the Canadian authorities. The inclusion of Archer and Foster in the 1936 British Olympic team drew strong protests from the Canadians but the objection was eventually withdrawn and Sandy Archer of Wembley Lions played on the right-wing in all seven Olympic matches. Archer subsequently played in the British team which won the European Championships in 1937 and 1938. His playing career was ended by injury in 1934 and he then coached at Wembley, Nottingham and Murrayfield before being appointed general manager of Murrayfield Ice Rink in 1952.
