1) Within your club decide how many teams you wish to enter into the League and make sure that the teams are sustainable and ensure that all players are aware that they must be prepared to play over 22 weekends from mid-September to the end of March and that they must be prepared to travel the length and breath of the East or their quadrant (depending on what League Division your teams will play in).

3) Click on the Pre-season tab on the left hand side
4) Click on the entry form link under the heading League Entry Form
5) You will need your clubs password
6) Follow the online instructions and enter the number of teams you wish to enter and ensure that where you have named and numbered teams they are placed in order of strength.
You will note that if you are intending to field a team in the East Indoor League you must enter your teams on the same online entry form.


East Indoor League Entry dates: Just a reminder to all clubs, the dates for this years East Region Indoor League will be 8-9th December - Ladies Indoor (Premier Division & Division 1 - both halls at UEA), 15-16th December - Mens Indoor (Premier Division & Division 1 - both halls at UEA). To help the Indoor Committee and clubs please remember that method of entry and deadline is now the same. The deadline date is now 31st May and entry can be made via the on-line entry form as used by the Outdoor League for the past few seasons.


Come and join the East League Management Committee: As we have done in the past few years, the East League Management Committee are looking for a couple of volunteers to come and join us. In the recent England Hockey Governance survey, over 70% of the participating clubs said that the ELMC contributed positively towards the aims and objectives of the member clubs..... this will mean you will be adding to the positive contribution we are already making. We are looking for a League Manager who would come in and manage a couple of League Divisions. The role involves checking results and teamsheets, managing complaints against both the rules in place for that season and the spirit of fair play and contributing towards taking the League forwards. We are also looking for a budget officer, who will accurately receive and record League entries fees, fines and sundry income. In this role you will work closely with the East Region Treasurer. If you are interested in either role or would like to find out more then please contact either East League Secretary Neil Liversedge or East League Chair Rosemary Prince. Their contact details are in the East League Management Committee page to the left of this screen.


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
