EHL, North and Yorkshire League Restructuring 2019-20

yhalogoblue.jpgEHL, North and Yorkshire League Restructuring 2019-20
In March 2018 England Hockey agreed to changes to the structure of the Investec Women’s Hockey League and Men’s Hockey League. The changes will be implemented in the 2019-20 season.
These changes are the first step in adapting to the evolving landscape of the Hockey Pro League (and international player availability) and requests from clubs to review the domestic structure.
The EHL Leagues will change from four ten-team divisions (Premier, plus E, N & W Conferences), to six ten-team diviisons (Premier, Div 1 North, Div 1 South, plus E, N & W Conferences).
To achieve this at the end of the 2018-19 season the top four teams in each Regional League will be promoted to the restructured 2019-20 Leagues.
This has a knock-on effect on the NORTH HOCKEY LEAGUES, and to the YORKSHIRE HOCKEY LEAGUES.

Boys Under-12 YYHL Session on Sunday 20 January has been Cancelled

yhalogoblue.jpgBoys Under-12 YYHL Session on Sunday 20 January has been Cancelled
UThe niversity of Leeds University have cancelled the Yorkshire Youth Hockey League Boys Under-12 sessionh on Sunday 20 January due to bad weather Health & Safety issues.
We have decided that in view of the weather forecast for freezing temperatures and snow over the Staurday night into Sunday that CANCELLING both Leeds University and Leeds Adel HC would make sense.
Not sure about the rest of the County but Quensbury in Bradford already has a snow fall.
The roads are unlikely to be treated effectively with rock salt, so longer car journeys will become a little hairy and dangerous,  and the pitch at Leeds Adel HC too hard for safe play by the youngsters.
A chance for a lie in and keeping warm!!!

We will look to rearrange this Sunday's session to after Easter ......  perhaps to Sunday 28th April .....  the U10 Girls are also playing on this date.
Further confirmation after discussing with both UoL & LAHC.
Will use the Order of Play for Sunday's 20 Jan session at the next U12 Boys date on 10th February.

The 2019 Rules Changes Deconstructed
fh_umpires.gifThe 2019 Rules Changes Deconstructed
www.npua.co.uk 21 December 2018
Our friend and colleague Keely Dunn has posted an excellent - and typically forthright - blog on the new 2019 rules on her FHUmpires website.
While we understand that the rules changes aren't due to be implemented in England this season, it will help us in our preparation for 2019/20 to understand all the changes, including the lesser ones that might have slipped under the radar so far. Keely's blog will undoubtedly help in that regard.
