4th MarMarch 3rd Rearranged Games

Following the large number of postponed matches yesterday (3/3/18) we will have a number of rearranged league games across the EMHUA region over the next few weeks, alongside potential cup games.

Could all umpires please review their availability and update as appropriate – including Sundays and potential midweeks.

For any NPUA and MRHUA qualified umpires it is acknowledged these higher appointments take priority, however we would be grateful if availability is still indicated.

Please contact Bill Workman (Appointments Sec) with any queries.

3rd MarWhat to do if a match is cancelled

This information is available in the downloads area in Umpire Information as in link below; It is important ALL umpires follow this procedure.
Two things: Firstly please let the Appointments Secretary (Bill Workman) know as soon as possible of the cancellation contact details are on the website.
If Bill is not available then enter your Personal Area on the website looking for a RED box marked ‘Do you know a match is cancelled’. Take note of the comments in the box and if the match is to be cancelled click the buton marked ‘Mark the selected match as cancelled’. You will then be asked to confirm the fixture as cancelled by clicking the buton marked ‘‘confirm’’ This records the match as cancelled and sends an email to the Appointments Secretary.
Secondly if you have travelled and mileage expenses have been incurred these can now be claimed as normal but you should not be asked for any additonal feedback for results, team behaviour or hospitality etc. If you ever attempt to enter your mileage for expenses for a cancelled match and the system asks you for feedback on the teams please DO NOT ENTER ANYTHING and contact the person who appointed you or the EMHUA Webmaster (Josh Robinson) immediately. They will ensure that the appointment is changed so that you can claim expenses if necessary minus the feedback option. If you have not travelled to the game please click the ‘no expenses incurred’ buton
