East Men's and Women's League News


Updating your club contact details: Just 11 teams are required to update their club details. Hopefully all clubs will be able to get this completed well before Friday's deadline! Chelmsford, Felixstowe, Harleston Magpies, Luton Vagrants, Southgate, Stevenage, Thurrock, Tower Hamlets, Vauxhall, Wapping, Welwyn Garden Centre are the clubs concerned. If you play for them or play for a neighbouring club and have friends play for them please let the senior members in the club know. Please remember there is a 50% increase in League entry fees if your late!


Proposed Divisions for the 2017-18 season: We have published a new version of the proposed divisions for the 2017-18 today, the changes reflect comments from clubs, a correction from where we had made a small error in EML Divisions 2 (which was highlighted by a club and had an impact both on that club and further down the SW quadrant), a correction in the SE and NW quadrant and the wish for a club to swap into Div 5NWS. As always to see them please click on the Pre-season tab on the left hand side of this page and then click the link towards the top of the page. Apologies to clubs that have been affected but this year has been particularly difficult with team entries, let alone other requests that have popped out of the woodwork. Please take until Friday 23rd June to give us your final comments as we need to work on the fixtures to get them available for circa 5th July.


Out with the old........: Representatives of over 40 clubs came together along with guests of honour (ERHA President Peter Leaton and ERHA Vice President Sally Tippen) to the East League Annual General Meeting and Presentation Day.to celebrate the handing over of trophies to the different winners of each division, along with the Fair Play awards and top goal scorers in both the Women's and Men's sections. East League Chair Rosemary Prince paid respect to each winner in particular to Old Loughtonians who won the EML Premier Division and Bedford who won the EWL Premier Division and will now go forward to participate in their respective National Leagues and we wish them well. Only two clubs did not come to pick up their trophies (Ipswich and Shefford and Sandy) and they will receive their fines in due course. Thank you to all who attended and finally thank you to Letchworth Hockey Club for hosting the event.


Final Call - League League Entries for the 2017-18 season: Chelmsford, Christchurch, Ely City, Gore Court, Harlow, Luton Town, Southend and Benfleet, Wellingborough and Witham. If you are a member of these clubs or are a friend of a member involved in these clubs please get in touch with senior members of the clubs please get in touch with them as these clubs are the last to have not entered any teams for the 2017-18 season. The deadline is 31st May (tomorrow!).


East Men's League - South-West quadrant: We would just like to give early warning that there is likely to be some significant change in the mid to lower divisions of the SW quadrant. We are already aware of 3 clubs shrinking and possibly 2 clubs combining. We will seek to minimise disruption but give early warning that to maintain 12 team divisions there may be reduced relegations or increased promotions from certain divisions, using the word and spirit of the existing rules. Obviously we cannot provide full details until all League entries are in and we have published the League divisions but we thought it only fair to give early notice.


EWL Entries for the 2017-18 season: Firstly thank you to the teams who have entered so far, to those who haven't as yet yes we realise there is a deadline, but, the sooner we get all entries in the sooner we can publish next seasons proposed Leagues. Less than a week to go to the closing date for clubs wanting to enter a team. The offending clubs are Ashford, Bedford, Bourne Deeping, Brentwood, Bromley & Beckenham, Cambridge City, Chelmsford, City of Peterborough, Ely City, Harleston Magpies, Haverhill Ladies, Huntingdon, March Town, Newmarket, Panthers, Sevenoaks, Skegness, Spilsby, Stevenage, Sudbury, Thurrock, Tunbridge Wells, Upminster, Wapping, Welwyn Garden City, Wisbech Town, Yarmouth
