East Men's and Women's League News


20/04/2018

East Indoor League Entry dates: In a bid to help clubs and the East Indoor League committee it has been agreed that entry deadline date to the East Indoor League for both Men and Women will be brought forwards to 31st May (inline to the main outdoor East League). This will provide competition organisers some certainty around entry numbers and will allow clubs more time to arrange their indoor cancellation dates and re-arrange any postponed games to earlier in the season. More details to follow.

Top Goal Scorer call: Oh we have received a flurry of claims to day, each one taking the EML claim higher and higher. We are currently checking a claim of 41 goals.In the EWL the claim remains at 48 goals. Do you know someone who scored more? yes? please contact either East League Secretary Neil Liversedge or your relevant League Manager.

Congratulations to our worthy Champions: The East League Management Committee would like to offer our congratulations to our League Champions. In the East Women's League Ipswich sealed the deal and it is great to see them return to the National League environment.
In the Men's League we had to wait until the last two games to see who the victor would be, with City of Peterbough and St Albans both in the mix. Today City of Peterborough beat Chelmsford and are crown with the title.
Congratulations to both Ipswich and City of Peterbough, we wish you luck next season and, in the nicest possible way, we don't want to see you back for a very long time

Top Goal scorers award: As we finally approach the end of the season it is time when we as a League Management Committee look to reward the top goal scorer in both the Men's and Women's Leagues. If you could send your nominations to the East League Secretary or your League Manager by 30th April.

06/04/2018

Changes to National and Regional Leagues: England Hockey have announced changes to the structure of the national Women’s and Men’s Hockey Leagues from the 2019-20 season, with concomitant changes at the top of Regional Leagues. This is the first step in adapting to the Hockey Pro League and requests from clubs to review the domestic structure. A summary of the changes is here

Trophies - Have you sent yours back: Did you win a League Division last season? Have you returned your trophy? No? You only have until Saturday to do so. Read the news item from earlier in the month to find out how!

Photographs wanted: With the season drawing to a close, we are looking for action shots suitable for the front cover of the 2018-19 East Handbook. If you want to submit a shot for consideration, please email it as a jpg to the East Webmaster - who is now also the HB Editor (again). Many thanks.

East Over 35 Ladies: East has been asked if they can field a team for a Regional tournament on 23/24 June. If you are interested in playing or managing this team please contact Sally Tippen - legend_st@hotmail.co.uk. The closing date for entry of a team is 13 April.

16/03/2018

If games are called off when should they be played?: If games are postponed this weekend the League Management Committee have agreed that the season will be extended by 1 week and will end on Saturday 14th or Sunday 15th April. The only games that will be allowed to be played this weekend will be games from Saturday 16th March or Sunday 17th March. Should both clubs agree that they wish to play the game before that date you CAN do so, as long as both clubs agree and you can get umpires. Games scheduled to be played before 16th March will have to be replayed using the existing slip dates.

16/03/2018

oh-oh, if the beast is back what to do: After a glorious day, when it was perfect for playing hockey, tomorrow (Sat 17th) is forecast to be cold and frozen for a short snap. Typical! Therefore we expect clubs to have early pitch inspections planned. If you receive appointed umpires you should be making the decision before whoever has the longest journey starts out from home.

15/03/2018

Thurrock 2 withdraw : This is such sad news so close to the end of the season, however Thurrock 2nd X1 have conceded their 4th game and therefore will be withdrawn from the League. All of their games will now be declared void. We sincerely hope that we see membership at Thurrock recovers and we see the 2nd X1 back in the League in the near future.

14/03/2018

Re-arranged games: Firstly, thank you to all the fixture secretary's who have worked so hard to get games re-arranged so far. It has been a tough season. We need every club to work together to ensure games postponed on 3rd March and before are all re-arranged prior to this weekend. There are about 50 games outstanding and it looks like some clubs just haven't entered dates/times on the website yet. If you have pool appointed umpires please make sure the relevant pool secretary's are contacted as well. Thanks again!
