Final Call for Top Scorers: Just a final call to all clubs, if you know someone in the EML who has scored more than 64 goals this season please do let us know or if there is a lady in the EWL who has scored more than 35 goals again please do let us know. If you feel you have a claim please contact your League Manager or East League Secretary Neil Liversedge by 30th April.
Club Entries for 2015-16 season: Club Secretary's of clubs across the East have been sent emails notifying them that the on-line entry system for teams to participate in the 2015-16 season are now open. The deadline for entries is 31st May. Please make sure that within your club the discussion takes place so entry occurs by the deadline. If it doesn't there is either a fine or the risk that your teams will not be entered at all!
The process to follow is:
- Go to the East League home page
- click on the pre-season action tab on the left hand side
- click on the League Entry tab at the top of the screen.
- at this point you will need your clubs web password for the East League website
- enter your password
- enter the number of teams you wish to enter
- remember where you have teams with numbers and names you will be required to place your teams in order of
strength (also remember that you are doing this for your club, the League cannot be held responsible if you
get this bit wrong!!!)
This season you will notice that entry to Women's teams is also going to be carried out on-line, so if you have teams that play in the East League please place their entry on line too
League Website : There has been a small revamp of the East League webpage, which we hope you like. Please feel free to have a look and feedback any comments you may have either to the East League Sec Neil Liversedge or email the webmaster (there is a link at the top of the page). Some of the wording on some of the tabs has been tidied up but basically everything else is more or less the same!
Anyone using an old link to the League Home page will be automatically directed to the new page. The links to fixtures/venues, etc are largely unchanged.
Top Goalscorer's: We have received our opening bids for top goalscorer. 64 in the East Men's League and 35 in the East Women's League. One of those being put forwards has been a very successful poacher for over 25 years and has been knocking on the door of top scorer for years, so the question is do you know anyone who has scored more???
New Rules for 2015-16 season: New Rules 2014-15
29/03/2015: After consultation, EH has decided that all of the new Rules are to be introduced throughout the game 1st July 2015, except that the new rule that relate to the ‘green card’ and to the ‘use of the stick above the shoulder’ are not introduced in small sided junior hockey (specifically In2Hockey and Quicksticks).
Whilst the new Rules will be introduced formally on 1st July, they can be used immediately in any non formal competition wherever all the participants (including umpires) agree.
For further information, see the news item on the EH website or please contact email@example.com
Congratulations to EML and EWL Champions: Congratulations to Harleston Magpies 1st X1 on winning the East Men's League Premier A division and Cambridge City 1 on winning the EWL Premier Division. Both teams will now go forwards to the National League Divisions and we wish them well.
Top Man and Lady goal scorers: As you will remember, each year we recognise the top goal scorers in both the East Men's and East Women's League, so if you think you have someone in your club who scored plenty of goals either from brilliance or because they are quite good at short corners or they are always there to tap in please do let Neil Liversedge, the East League Secretary know by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Last years Male top scorer scored over 50 goals and the Lady top scorer over 30 so please let us know who your sharp shooter nominations are.
Last Call for Trophies: Here is a reminder for all League Division winners. Can you please ensure that the trophies presented to you at last seasons League AGM and Presentation Day are returned by the 31st March deadline. The news item below gives you the instructions to follow.
