Bad Weather Postponement and Rearrangement
yhalogoblue.jpgBad Weather Match Postponement and Rearrangement

POSTPONING MATCHES

The weather forecast for tonight and tomorrow suggests that there could be many games called off due to frozen pitches, etc. (League Rule 6.10.1.c)
Please make sure that your pitches are checked as early as possible, preferably before your opponents have set off (this includes any umpires appointed by YHUA).
  • League Rule 6.10.1.d requires that opponents and appointed umpires are contacted “at least 3 hours before the agreed start time.”
  • When contacting opponents please make sure that you actually speak to someone rather than just leaving an answerphone or text message. The YHA Handbook contains lists of club contacts – your club has access to the YHA Handbook Clubs Section.
  • Once called off you need to update the YHA Website (League Rule 6.10.1.e) by ticking the POSTPONED box next to your fixture and add a concise reason for postponement (i.e. frozen pitch, etc.).
  • League Rule 6.10.1.f requires home teams of matches in Men’s and Women’s Premier Div, Div 1 and 2 to inform the YHA Web Manager of the postponement by text to 07936 515230, OR update the YHA Website with the postponement details.
  • Please Note: Updating the YHA Website does not constitute ‘informing your opponents of the postponement’
  • You also need to inform your Div Rep of the postponement by email.

REARRANGING MATCHES
League Rule 6.10.1.g states that:
“The postponed match must be rearranged within 7 days of the postponement on a date agreed by both sides.  The rearranged date for the match must be a Sunday within 15 days of the postponement or the nearest midseason slip date.”
  • The midseason slip date of Saturday 18 February is available for rearrangements.
  • Should a substantial number of fixtures be postponed (usually 75% within a league) those postponed fixtures will be moved en bloc by the YHA Competitions Committee to a suitable vacant date and clubs informed. Should this happen you can still rearrange any postponed game to a date earlier than any en bloc move.
  • If you are having difficulty contacting opponents or rearranging fixtures CONTACT YOUR DIV REP as early as possible. Failure to rearrange matches could lead to matches being declared null and void.

END OF SEASON DATE
The official end of season date is the weekend of 25/26 March 2017. All League fixtures must be completed by this date (unless any fixture en bloc due to substantial postponements). Clubs should not rearrange fixtures to any dates after Sunday 26 March unless informed to the contrary.

League Rule 6.10.1 and Rule 6.12 have been added to the READ MORE section below.

Sheffield Univeristy Bankers' Start Times at Meadowhead School
sheffield_uni_bankers_logo.gifSheffield Univeristy Bankers' Start Times at Meadowhead School
Will any opposition teams due to play Sheffield University Bankers at Meadowhead School at 13:30 in the coming weeks please note that the start times have changed to 13:15. This has been necessary to allow sufficient travel time for any SUBHC umpires who may be subsequently umpiring at Goodwin SC at 15:15.
The YHA Website fixtures have been changed from 13:30 to 13:15
Thanks: Graham Seaton, SUBHC Fixture Secretary

LINDUM 1 (WOMEN)
yhalogoblue.jpgLINDUM 1 (WOMEN)
Lincoln Roses HC merged with Lincoln HC at the end of the 2014/2015 season and have changed their name to Lindum HC.
They have increased the number of teams they are running. However Lindum 1st team play in Division 1 North of the East League which is equivalent to our North Division 1.  To accommodate them at an appropriate level we decided and notified teams at the clubs meeting in June 2016 that at the end of the season 2016/17 they will have a play-off against the 2nd team in the Yorkshire Premier League who would normally be promoted automatically to North Div 2 SE.
The winner of this pay off will play in North Div 2 SE and the loser will play in the Yorkshire Premier Division the following season. 
The play off will take place on Sunday 23rd April 2017 at Doncaster, as part of the Yorkshire Cup Finals weekend.
We would normally insist that any new teams entering into the Yorkshire League should start at the bottom, but as this is a merger and Lincoln Roses have already started at the bottom division and worked their way through the leagues that this is the fairest solution, and ensures teams are playing at an appropriate level.

The above solution will affect relegation across the remaining non-regional Yorkshire League Divisions with three teams expected to be relegated in these Divisions (Premier, 1, 2 and 3).
Three teams will still be relegated from division 3 (positions 9.10 and 11). Although Division 3 is currently playing one team short we still need to relegate 3 teams as three teams are promoted from division 4 N & S.
Beyond that the fact that Division 3 only have 11 teams means that usual promotion and relegation will occur from Division 4N & S downwards.
We will indicate on the website against the league tables how many teams we expect to be relegated from each league.
This is very unlikely to change when promotion and relegation between North Division 1 and North Division 2SE is concluded but that will not be known conclusively until the North Division 2 play offs are concluded.

Match Result Reporting Weekend of 7/8 January 2017
yhalogoblue.jpgMatch Result Reporting Weekend of 7/8 January 2017
Senior Leagues: By 11.00 p.m. on Sunday 8 January all results (except two) for the Men's and Women's Leagues were on the YHA Website and by midday on Monday every fixture had a result or p-p against it!
This is a brilliant response from all Yorkshire clubs and one of the best we have ever had.
It's a fantastic way to welcome in the New Year and hopefully one that will conitinue!
Youth Leagues: Not to be outdone by their senior colleagues the Girls Under-10, Under-14 and Boys Under-16 league teams also had all their Sunday results, bar two, entered to the YHA Webiste by midday on Monday - another tremendous achievement!
In total 256 match results were added to the YHA Website by Monday lunchtime and we would like to thank all Clubs for their diligence and hope this continues for the rest of the season!

John Epps

John Epps
England Hockey is sad to report the news over the Christmas period of the passing of John Epps, a long time member of Bowdon Hockey Club.
John was a Match Official in the England Hockey League for a number of seasons. He also umpired in Cumbria and the North West Hockey League.
In 2012 John volunteered for the Olympics in London and worked at the hockey competition in the Sports Information team. John was a huge hockey fan and an absolute gentleman  He will be sorely missed.
John's funeral is to be held on Friday 20th January at 12noon at the United Reformed Church, 81 Cecil Road, Hale, Altrincham, Cheshire. WA15 9NT. His family have family flowers only. It will be followed by a wake to celebrate his life, at the Mercure Bowdon Hotel, Langham Road, Bowdon WA14 2HT
Our thoughts and condolences are with John's friends and family at this time.

League Match Umpires
yhalogoblue.jpg
If you are having difficulty finding an umpire -
A message from Anne Bryant:-
a) The failure by either team in League matches in Divisions 4 and above for Men Clubs, Division 3 and above for Women Clubs, to provide Umpires graded EH Level 1 Assessed or higher will incur a fine of £25.
b) The match will be declared a 3-0 loss against the defaulting team unless both teams agree to complete it with Umpires who are not of EH Level 1 Assessed or higher. This must be clearly stated on the match report form and agreed between the captains 24 hours prior to the match.
c) A friendly game may be played and again this must be stated on the match report form.

FIH Outdoor Hockey Rule Changes 2017 Update
fih_logo.jpgFIH Outdoor Hockey Rule Changes 2017 Update
www.englandhockey.co.uk 21.11.2016
The FIH have recently published the new Rules of Outdoor Hockey (you can find them here), with the implementation date at international level of 1st January 2017; but National Associations have discretion to decide the date of implementation at National Level.

eh_logo01.jpgEngland Hockey has decided to implement these changes at all levels effective 1st August 2017, ahead of the 2017/18 season.
As a National Governing Body of the sport, we want to promote a consistent set of rules throughout all levels of our sport, as well as preventing any rule changes that are not considered “major changes” to the game to be implemented mid-season. After working with the EH Rules and Regulations committee, taking advice from all levels of the game, we feel an implementation date for the start of the 2017/18 season is the most sensible time to make these changes.
Details of the rule changes that will be implemented will be released over the Summer of 2017, to allow players, coaches, umpires and technical officials time to review these changes and plan accordingly for the season.
If you have any queries, please contact David Elworthy (EH Officiating Officer) at -email-
