20th JulWebsite Access for Clubs and Teams

Important message to all clubs and teams accessing the MRHUA, BCHUA and EMHUA Websites.

Following the introduction of the GDPR regulations in May, the umpiring websites have changed the way that clubs and teams access the website. The prime change is that there is no longer one password per club or team and only registered people with their own password can access their club or team pages.

In order to comply with the GDPR regulations all club and team contacts should now access the website through their own personal areas using their registered email address and password, which have been created for all known contacts, from details previously stored, as part of the new system implementation.

All known Club and Team contacts will have received emails, to their registered email address, advising of the change and of the need to setup a ‘personal’ password.
Clubs and teams must utilise this method in order to update or change names and or contact details. If the link in your email has expired (please check your junk boxes if you have not received these), please contact the relevant webmaster of MRHUA, BCHUA or EMHUA who will reset.

12th JulEMHUA Updated Kit Order Form
