East Men's and Women's League News


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.


Slip Date Weekends: Just a reminder that the slip date weekends at the very end of the season are 1st/2nd April and 8th/9th April. All postponed or abandoned game where an instruction has been given to replay the game must be played (at the very latest) by 9th April. Obviously if this needs to be re-assessed due to further bad weather we will communicate this to all clubs.


Respect to umpires from both players and sidelines: As this weekend is the first weekend where it seems we will probably get a full program of play tomorrow it is appropriate to issue a reminder to all clubs and players of their conduct towards umpires. Feedback from the ERHUA, County HUA's and club umpires is that dissent is at an all time high both from players and from the sidelines. Put simply this has got to stop. We all know that player within our team who from the first whistle chats to the umpire from the first whistle but we never tell them to be quiet and we all know that guy on the sidelines who think it is a bit of "banter" to shout the odd smart alec comment when a valid decision goes against our team. As we, including the umpires, are part of the hockey family it is time to bring this behaviour under control. We encourage all clubs to remind their players and supporters of their responsibility under the England Hockey Code of Conduct, and yes it applies to all players and all supporters both before, during and after the game. We can't play the game without umpires, they volunteer to give their time so that we can all play the game and we MUST give all umpires a positive level of support and encouragement.


Transfer deadline : If you are thinking of moving clubs, 31st January marks the deadline by which the transfer must be started. After that date no transfers will be allowed to be entered onto the transfer system.


Re-arranging postponed fixtures: Was your game postponed last Saturday, if it was you need to remind your clubs fixture secretary that a date for the game to be replayed needs to be agreed within 14 days of the original fixture being postponed. This means both clubs need to communicate, agree the date and get the re-arranged date published on the League website (and if you have pool appointed umpires, make sure you tell them the new date!). As you are aware we are encouraging all clubs to use 18th Feb slip date. Some teams (about 20) had already agreed games on this date, so these clubs should use another date. We obviously do not know what weather is ahead of us, so please help everyone in the game by getting the already postponed game back in the diary.
