East Men's and Women's League News


Can you help Hertford Hockey Club: Hertford Hockey Club are working in Partnership with Presdales School to build a new Astro Pitch the School. This would not only act a facility for the school and the club, but could also be used by the local Community as well as another venue to host junior Hockey Tournaments. We are now under a week away from the voting window closing, and have to date achieved over 10,000 votes, which is a great achievement. But we still need more votes as competition is strong on this round of voting. It would therefore be greatly appreciated if you could share this across your clubs and help us gather more votes over the next 5 days and help us achieve this goal. The link is below and takes a few minutes to vote. (Each email address can be used for 10 votes). All help from the Hockey Family is greatly appreciated to help provide facilities to grow our sport.


Umpire Feedback -East Premier Teams: This message applies only to clubs with teams that have East Region Hockey Umpires Association appointed to their games ( EML Prem A and B and EWL Prem ). As you are aware the Umpires Association are looking to encourage feedback from teams after every game with the aim of improving the standard of umpiring. At the start of the season each club was provided with instructions on how to do this via the ERHUA's own website. Can each club please ensure they help by providing their feedback each week. If you have lost the instructions please ensure you contact either the ERHUA Chair or Appointments Secretary.


The age where a Junior can play in an Adult League Game: In the last two seasons we have had a couple of occasions where Adult clubs have played a junior member in their teams. The excuse given by both clubs is "you don't have a rule with an age limit!" Both clubs are absolutely right and this is because England Hockey has a policy on the issue which applies to all clubs in England, it is a policy all clubs subscribe to when paying their England Hockey affiliation fees. The age when a junior can play hockey in an adult league is 13 and no earlier. Any clubs who are tempted to play a younger player should refrain and should the League Management Committee become aware serious penalties would be applied.


Mileage rates: For the 2018/19 season, ERHA rates are 27p per mile.


England Masters Trials: Dates for 2018-19 are now published - see link on Masters page.


EML - Felixstowe 4 and St Neots 5 withdraw: It is with great sadness that both Felixstowe 4 and St Neots 5 have had to withdraw from their respective league divisions in the East Men's League. We sincerely hope that both clubs will recover player numbers and we will see both teams back competing in the East League soon.
Both clubs have been instructed to contact the other clubs in their League Divisions to allow the clubs to cancel their pitches and refreshments.
