League Fixtures -Update: The draft league fixtures for the 2015-16 season have been uploaded and are available for view and comment. We invite any questions, comments or the pointing out of errors and we ask that these are received by 2nd August. All fixtures should be considered to be in draft until this time because if errors are found some fixtures may be changed.
Updating Umpire Details: Would all clubs please note, following agreement at the East League AGM each East League club will have to update their qualified club umpire details. Having carried out an audit of the lists we found that many clubs had updated their lists, but had not deleted old members who had either left their club, stopped umpiring, had retired or, in one case, had died.
Therefore on the League web homepage please click on the update club umpires tab, enter your clubs password and input your umpires details (which will need to include their new England Hockey registration number). If you require the new registration number than you we suggest that you send an email containing your list of umpires to firstname.lastname@example.org who will provide you with the correct details.
All club umpires lists need to be updated by the start of the season and if you think you have already done this BUT provided old registration details you will need to edit the list to show the new details.
East League Invoices: Invoices for the Payment of East League fees are now available for download, so that clubs can then pay their entry fee. To do this head to the "Pre-season Action tab" on the East League homepage. Click on the League Invoice tab and follow the instructions on screen. Payment is due before 19th September, which is the start of the East League season. We do, however, encourage all clubs to pay their League entry fee well before the deadline, as clubs should not rely on any late reminders.
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.
