Beast update: Over the course of Wednesday night and this evening we have seen of first cancellation of games this weekend, well done to those clubs. We encourage all clubs to be positive and early in their decision making this weekend. Make sure you you look at the forecast, talk to your pitch suppliers to understand what the current pitch conditions are and ask how are they going to improve. As a League Management Committee we fully expect close to a 100% cancellation rate what with the Beast from the East and Storm Emma. We would hope, on behalf of the Hockey family, that come this time tomorrow night every one participating in games this weekend will know what is happening on Saturday (including umpires, all players, fixture secretary's umpire liaison officers and tea ladies!!).
