MRHA Men’s Hockey League – February 2019 Newsletter

By Joseph Milligan

Now we are in to our mid-season break and, following our latest League Committee Meeting, it’s time for a few comments on the season to date.

League Tables/Outstanding Results
There are a couple of fixtures outstanding, lets make sure we get them arranged and completed.
Can I ask that you ensure all Venues/Times are loaded on the website and any re-arranged games are updated as soon as you are aware of the date. It saves the Divisional Secretary, and me, a lot of time chasing.
Umpiring Matters
The following requests from the Umpires’ Associations are still not happening:

  • Ensure all your club contact details are correct on the MRHUA website, this includes treasurer.
  • Ensure times on the MRHUA and MRHA League websites are the same.
  • Remember to confirm with your appointed umpires before the game.
  • Ensure you have enough time booked to complete a delayed start of a game. If necessary, reduce the length of the game to ensure there is not a knock-on effect due to delays.

Participation in Open League
With the formula we used to decide on the merging of Leagues into the one pyramid we appreciate that there have been some teams that have struggled this year and we’ve had a number of teams withdraw due to lack of players. Although most of them have been in the bottom divisions there have been one or two higher that will affect promotions. This will probably mean that currently there would be one additional promotion at each level, e.g. best third place from East and West Midlands Premier etc. We will probably have to move some teams between some of the area divisions but will be taking travelling into consideration.

If you feel your team would be more comfortable at a lower level, please let me know.
We also have our normal deadline for new teams, of 1st April. These teams will be joining at the bottom level.

Finally, I hope we are not weather effected in the last few weeks and we don’t overruns like last year.
