1st FebReminder for Late Confirmations to Appointed Games

All,
This is a reminder to please let us know when a team confirms your appointment match details late. Although you may not mind when this happens, other people do, and as such to avoid future issues we need to know when this is happening.

If you receive a late confirmation, or have to chase your confirmation, please let our Webmaster Josh Robinson know so that he can track these and take the appropriate actions for repeat offenders.

17th Dec (2018)Urinating at the side of a hockey pitch - Statement from England Hockey

Please see below from England Hockey:

We are seeing an increasing number of complaints regarding urinating at the side of the pitch. As we are sure you will all agree, this behaviour is not only unpleasant but also a contravention of the EH ‘Respect – Code of Ethics and Behaviour’ – Disrepute Offence, not to mention in some cases a criminal offence. We expect all members to refrain from such behaviour. However, in the event of such incidences, in keeping with the revised Disrepute Complaint Regulations, we kindly ask that these be referred to EH as a Disrepute Complaint in the first instance. It is likely that offenders will face a suspension.

If you have any questions, please refer to Colin Anderson, Secretary, EMHUA.
