East Men's and Women's League News


League Manager Chris Perry moves house: League Manager for East Mens's League Division's 9SW and 9SE and 10 SE Chris Perry has moved house. Please note that for teamsheets his new address is: 74 Port Vale, Hertford, SG14 3AF


Janet Goody: We are saddened to hear the news that Janet Goody (a very long term League Manager for the EWL Women's Premier Division) has passed away. Janet was at the forefront of the combining of the East Men's and East Women's League committee's into a single entity and was admired by both clubs and her fellow committee members for her sincere and common sense approach in dealing with problems. She will be sadly missed. Details of her funeral will follow.


After 3 weeks of cold weather........... Happy Christmas: Sometimes on the East League Management Committee things can be slightly frustrating and situations occur where you we feel like we can't win. After 3 weekends where we have had freezing temperatures and many games being called off we now have a weekend of mild temperatures and no rain and someone has gone and arranged the Christmas holidays to start..... We hope that all of our clubs, teams, players, fixture secretaries, umpire liaison officers, umpires and supporters have a peaceful Christmas and a great start to the New Year. We also hope that those players who constantly chat to umpires behave and don't argue to much when they receive socks, when clearly they wanted the FIH Rules of Hockey book and couldn't the person buying the present clearly see that.


Outstanding Games: In the East Men's League there are circa 140 games outstanding, in the EWL there are about 40 games outstanding and a large number of these games were postponed this weekend, following freezing temperatures. We realise with the Christmas holidays shortly upon us we are giving all clubs up to and including Sunday 18th February to get all games scheduled either before or up to 16th December played. If you already have dates booked that is great and these were booked prior to the 16th December and these scheduled games should take place as planned. We are trying to be helpful to all clubs, as we understand that it can be difficult to book pitches at Schools and Leisure Centres over the Christmas Holidays and in giving this understanding to clubs we do not expect any team/club to ask for any further extension for games from the first half of the season, unless we receive more poor weather, where we would review the position.


England Over 35 trials: Sorry for the late posting, we have only received this this evening.
England Hockey are inviting anyone who will be 35 to 39 on or before the 31 December 2018 to apply for a trial to represent England Women’s/Men's O35s teams. The first trial will be held in the Midlands on December 17th 2017. Further trials are scheduled for 20th/21st January and 31st March/1st April 2018. Players wishing to be considered should send their contact name, address, relevant tel numbers, e mail address, preferred playing position, their Hockey Club and details of any representative honours; via e mail to: Steve Floyd - masters@englandhockey.co.uk. In addition, nominees should provide the contact information (mobile no and E mail) for one referee, who may be contacted.
