Proposed League Divisions finalised: The deadline for giving comments regarding the proposed league divisions has now passed. Where clubs have made a request for change these may or may not have been implemented after due consideration. We now have the task of building the fixture lists for next season, which I am sure you will understand is no small task for 45+ League Divisions. Once we have done this the fixtures will be released for a few days for comment and then the fixtures will be released as final, so that clubs can start to talk to one another about game venues and times.
Club Contact Information: A reminder to clubs, as per East League Rule 2.2 all clubs must update their club details on the East League website by 30th June. The process is really simple. Firstly go to the League Home Page, then click on the Pre Season Action Tab. You will see the 3rd paragraph is labelled Ensure your club page is up to date. Click on the click contained within the paragraph, then enter your club password and then follow the instructions. Please not that with some older versions of Internet Explorer, we have been told some clubs have difficulty accessing the pre-season actions page. If you do please try an ipad/tablet, internet enabled phone or a more up to date version of windows explorer.
Proposed League Divisions for the 2015/16 season: The proposed League Divisions for next season were first shown at yesterdays AGM and are now available for all clubs to view. To do so go to the East League homepage (if you are reading this you're on it!) and look at the Downloads tab on the left hand side of the page.
There is a different tab for both the Men and Women's Leagues.
If clubs have any questions, requests or comments please make sure that they are sent to Neil Liversedge, East League Secretary or Richard Munns, East League Fixtures Co-ordinator, by 18th June.
Successful East League AGM and Presentation Day: A massive thank you to everyone who attended today. Thank you also to Letchworth Hockey Club for hosting the event again. The AGM went very smoothly and all teams winning their division received their trophies from ERHA President Daphne Manear with the exception of UEA Men and Horncastle HC, who despite receiving the same invitation as other clubs and the same reminders as other clubs did not attend. It goes without saying that they will be in receipt of their fine within the next 24 hours.
East League Entries: Tomorrow is the final deadline for entries to both the EML and EWL. In the EML Felixstowe, Ford, North Norfolk, Old De Ferrians, Old Southendians and Wapping have not entered any teams as yet.
In the EWL, where we are using on-line entry for the first time we are still waiting for Ashford, BBHC, Burnt Ash, North Norfolk and Wapping.
If you are a member of these clubs reading this please note that notification emails were written directly to your clubs on 23rd April, a reminder was posted on this website the same day. So there has been plenty of time to avoid this late reminder.
