Graham Ward: Please note that the memorial service is slightly earlier than previously announced, and is at 1.00pm


Graham Ward: We have been notified of the passing of Graham Ward. Graham was an ex-President of the East Counties Hockey Association and helped push the game forwards as a coach both at County and Club level. A true legend at Wisbech Town Hockey Club, where he had been a stalwart for many years as a former Chairman, team captain and coach.

Since taking a step back from the game Graham could still be seen regularly on the sidelines at Harecroft Road where he would always have a smile and a friendly word with all of his friends in the hockey family. He will be sadly missed. A memorial service celebrating Graham's life will be held at St Peters Church, Wisbech on Friday, 17th November at 1.00pm.


Facilities at Felixstowe: We have received word from Felixstowe HC that their facilities provider at Felixstowe Academy have resolved their problems getting hot water through the showers. So you can now pack the shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and your rubber duck.


Fixture Venues and times for 2nd half of the season: This is an early reminder to all clubs who have not yet entered their Venue and match start times to the League website for the second half of the season. We say early reminder as the deadline is end of November, but some clubs run a large number of teams, therefore it is important your clubs start their planning. We note that Wapping, Cambridge City, Ipswich and East Suffolk, Bury St Edmunds, Potters Bar, Ipswich, Basildon, Romford, Tower Hamletts, Hertford, Harpenden, Sevenoaks, Bromley and Beckenham and lastly Haverhill each need to upload their bits, so if you play within these clubs and are reading this please start to ask your senior club members when this will be done to ensure the deadline is achieved.


GK Workshop at Wapping: "What to coach GKs course" is being held this Sunday 22 October at Wapping HC 13.30 - 16.30. Delivered by top GK coach "Panda" at a reduced cost of £25. Book through EH web page "Find a course" as soon as possible. Further information available from coaching@englandhockey.co.uk


Playing at Bedford, roadworks say you're going to need help: Robert Oakley (robertoakley1@hotmail.com, President of Bedford HC) has sent out a notification of a route they have made on Daft Logic Advanced Google Map Distance Calculator. The route name is "Bedford HC route whilst Ford End Rd bridge one way", with the following message …If you normally travel to Bedford Hockey Club travelling over the Ford End Road railway bridge into Queens Park, this bridge will be one way from 16th October to the 30th November. You will only be able to use the bridge when you leave the hockey club. Below is a link to a plan of the following suggested route: If approaching from the south and using Prebend Street continue using the A5141 (Midland Road into Ashburnham Road) - (first exit at the roundabout is to the closed Ford End Road, second exit is Midland Road). At top of Ashburnham Road take first left at round about on to A4280 (Bromham Road) cross bridge over rail track and take first left after only 200 yards into Hurst Grove, follow down to the end of that road and turn right and rejoin Ford End Road. Suggest you allow an extra 10 minutes journey time in the daytime (only 2/3 minutes detour at night). Apologies and thank you. To see this route click on the below link.
