Returning trophies: As we start to approach the end of the season on the East League Management committee we start looking back to last season as we have to start to collect the trophies that were handed our to last years division winners. We know that Wapping will have to hire a secure van to return all the silverware they collected and they will all other clubs need to be aware that the trophies have to be returned by the end of this month. This year our committee member Kishor Shah has agreed to have the trophies sent to him, his address details are Kishor Shah 63 Burstellars, St Ives, Huntingdon, PE27 3YN. All trophies should first be located (remember who collected them last year), cleaned (any debris/alcohol/bodily parts removed), packaged and returned.


Lee Valley parking: Please note Lee Valley operate a parking system and all players or supporters visiting should follow the instructions to avoid a parking fine. The system is not operated by Wapping Hockey Club. Please register your car registration details at the terminal at the Lee Valley reception desk. This will entitle you to 4 hours free parking. If you do not input your details or if you overstay your parking allocation you will receive a fine.


EML - Congratulations: Last weekend witnessed the first promotions of the season with Ipswich 3, Felixstowe 3, St Ives 1, Horncastle 1, Spalding 4, Plashet 1, Tower Hamlets 1 and Cheshunt 1 all gaining enough points to ensure they are playing in a higher division next season. Well done to all


EWL Congratulations: Congratulations to East London Ladies 1's for becoming the first team in the EWL to confirm their promotion. Elsewhere in the EWL there are going to be some exciting finishes to the season in the remaining games. Good luck to all involved.


Change of League Manager 3SW to 5SW: All affected clubs have been made aware via direct email, however we have sad news that Nick Hoyle has had to resign his position of League Manager due to family commitments. Nick has been on the East League Committee for a number of years and is well liked by the teams and clubs he has managed in this time, by his simple and friendly approach. Richard Munns has agreed to take over Divisions 3 to 5 South West for the remainder of the season. Richards contact details have been sent to all clubs, or they are given in the League Committee members page on the tab on the left hand side of this page.
