England Hockey Calendar 2017-18
eh_shield_blue.jpgEngland Hockey Calendar 2017-18
20.03.2017 www.englandhockey.co.uk
The final version of the England Hockey Calendar 2017-18 is now available. It is not anticipated that any further changes will be made.
The calendar gives details of what activity has priority on dates throughout the year. It is of course important that organisers use the relevant dates for activity and do not cause clashes for players by arranging on other dates.

Boys & Girls Under-16 League Play-Off FInals 2016-2017
Boys & Girls Under-16 League Play-Off Finals 2016-2017
UMPIRES:

To: Teams invited to the U16 & U14 Girls Play-Off Finals.
I have been told that the YHUA WILL NOT BE ABLE TO appoint Umpires to either the U16 Girls or U14 Girls Play-Off Finals.
It would appear that there are other demands on Umpire support particularly from the Ladies point of view that will take Umpires in other directions on these two dates ..... Sundays 26th March & 30th April. Can I ask Clubs to start to open negotiations with Umpires at their Clubs so that each team taking part can bring a suitably qualified and experienced Umpire to neutrally officiate at the Play-Offs.

You may be able to encourage an Umpire from a club not attending the Play Off Finals.
I will try to arrange an Umpire Order of Play so that whilst the Umpires will whistle games neutrally they should be able to watch their Club games and not have to officiate during that game.
All 8 Umpires will be given a meal ticket for drinks and refreshments during the Play Off Finals.

To: Teams invited to the U16 & U14 Boys Play-Off Finals.
I have had confirmation that the YHUA (Paul McCormick) WILL BE ABLE TO appoint Umpires to both the U16 & U14 Boys Play-Off Finals on 1st April.
A BIG THANK YOU TO PAUL & HIS TEAM.
Phil Thomas

Team Selection In The Last Four Scheduled Yorkshire League Dates Of The 2016-17 Season
Team Selection In The Last Four Scheduled Yorkshire League Dates Of The 2016-17 Season
To: All Yorkshire League Clubs
There are now four scheduled Yorkshire League dates left for the 2016-17 season.

Please note the following:
League Rule 7.9d states that:
"Within the last four scheduled games of the  League season any Club must not play in any Team a player who has played more than 50% of their games for higher sides in the current season, unless in four of the last five matches they have played for that lower side."

You should have already noted that League Rule 7.5o states the following:
"Additionally, after the end of January any player whose name has appeared on the match sheet in more than 75% of 1st team league matches cannot play for the club in a lower team league match unless permission has been obtained from the relevant Yorkshire League Secretary."

Please make sure that your team selection complies with the above (and all other) Yorkshire League Rules.
If you have any doubt or queries please contact your Division Representative.

Eric Duke
Eric Duke
To all associated with Yorkshire Hockey and beyond, it is with great sadness that Rotherham Hockey Club announce the passing of our President; Eric Duke. Eric passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his family, in the early hours of Friday morning on the 17th February, 2017. I am sure a great number of hockey colleagues will have known Eric and I am equally certain that you would like us to convey your deepest sympathies to his family.

On behalf of everyone connected with Rotherham Hockey Club, from committee, players and volunteers, I would like to offer our profound sympathies to Betty and family on their sad loss. It is hoped they can find peace, comfort and solace in the knowledge that Eric brought joy to their lives as much as he did to all of us.
Each and every one of us will have abiding memories of Eric; as a friend, a player, an umpire, a supporter and most especially as our President. He has touched and influenced so many of our lives over the years and has been an example to us all. As President of our club, Eric was a magnificent ambassador representing all that is good about hockey. Even during his illness, he could often be found on the touchline supporting and encouraging our teams; testament to how much Eric loved the club; the game and the atmosphere. Eric had a wonderful tenet in life and believed in treating all with warmth, kindness, gentleness and equality. He was a true gentleman and a gentle man, who very much loved the club and who, in return, was very much loved by the club. Legend is a word that is all too easily paraphrased these days, but Eric deserves such an accolade.
In remembrance of a dear man and our President, I am reminded to use extracts from the words of Sir Henry Newbolt:
A jumping pitch and a blinding light
But his Captain’s hand on his shoulder smote
“Play up! Play up! and play the game!”
To those of you who knew Eric, you will be aware that his favourite drink was a glass of red wine. It would be nice to remember Eric by providing him with one of the best complements we could ever give; raising a glass of red wine in his memory.

James Swinscoe. Chairman. Rotherham Hockey Club

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.
