East Men's and Women's League News


Divisions 2018-19: A new version has been loaded, incorporating team changes in Divisions 5SW and 6SW in EML.


Fixture Scheduling for Smaller Team League Divisions: It has been suggested that fixtures for smaller team League Divisions team league fixtures should be brought in line with the majority 12-team division fixtures. It has already been agreed to start these leagues on the same date as all the other leagues but a number of clubs have requested an equal number of home and away games on the same Saturday as possible. This can only be achieved with 10-team leagues if the 12-team format is used and two teams have a 'free'
Saturday each week before and after Christmas. This will be an extension of the current format where, with 11
teams playing in a 12-team format, one team each week has a 'free' day. This will affect only EML Divisions 6NE(N), 6NE(S) and EWL Division 4NW(N) as 8-team and 14-team leagues divisions will remain with their own schedule.


Proposed Divisions for the 2018/19 season: The proposed League divisions for the coming season are now published and you can access them on the left hand side of this page. Please feel free to have a look and a browse. Any questions/requests/comments should be sent to East League Secretary by 16th June.


League fees: 2018-19 invoices will be available in August as usual. Until then do NOT pay fees on the assumption that the fee will be the same as last year.


Privacy Policy: ERHA has published its policy covering all aspects of East Hockey and the data it may hold, and this can be found by following the link at the top of this page.


East League Entries: Thank you to all clubs who have entered their teams for next season. One benefit of teams being entered well before the deadline of 31st May is that increases the chances of having proposed League Divisions displayed for everyone to see at the League AGM and Presentation Day which is being held on Sunday, 3rd June. This year not only can you enter your teams into the East League Mens and Women's League via the League website, but you can also enter your teams into the East Indoor League, please note that the deadline for all Leagues is the same date of 31st May. A reminder, this season your clubs will not get repeated reminders or updates on this website as Neil Liversedge is on holiday and will not be able to send out his usual array of multi-media reminders. If you enter late there is no guarantee that teams will be accepted and will certainly attract a 50% increase in League entry fees. The outstanding clubs are: Alford & District, Ashford, Bedford Ladies, Berkhamsted, Bourne Deeping, Bromley and Beckenham, Cambridge City, Canterbury, Chelmsford, City of Peterborough, Clacton, Crostyx, Dereham, Ely City, Harlow, Harpenden, Holcombe, Huntingdon, Letchworth, Long Sutton (Men), Louth, Lowestoft Railway, Luton Town, Maldon, North Norfolk, Norwich City, Plashet, Shefford & Sandy, Sevenoaks, Southend, Southgate, Southgate Adelaide, Spilsby, Sudbury, Thetford Town, Thurrock, Tower Hamlets, Vauxhall, Waltham Forest, Wapping, Wellingborough, Welwyn Garden City, West Herts, Winchmore Hill & Enfield, Witham, Yarmouth.


Update your Club information: As usual, all East League clubs are expected to update their information page on this website ready for the new season. This must be done by 30th June 2018 to avoid a 50% increase in league fees. If your club info from last season still applies, just access the update form, make no changes, but complete the entry procedure at the bottom of the page.
