21st OctCompletion of League Match Sheets - 2020-21 season

In response to concerns raised regarding excessive contact through completion of the match sheet the League proposes a change. Both teams can choose to separately complete a match sheet with their team details, then both teams send their sheet electronically to the League Secretary. Both match sheets should record the date / location / team name / umpire names and their EH umpire registration number along with the score. You should also record the player names, numbers, any cards given for your team and the Captain’s name.

However, if you prefer you can continue to complete a single match sheet on the day and the Home team to electronically send this single sheet to the relevant League secretary – no physical signature is necessary. It is not necessary to capture the umpires signatures on the sheet – only the umpire names and their EH umpire registration number.

8th OctBe Considerate to Club Requests

In these uncertain times I would respectfully ask clubs to be considerate to any requests their opposition may make and try to accommodate those requests where possible please. These could be playing on a different day of the week (in accordance with the Covid Regulations Addendum provided to clubs on 14 September), swapping home and away fixtures to accommodate pitch availability, amongst other things. Thank you.

8th OctWelsh Teams Playing in the WCWHL Premier Division 1

Following on from Hockey Wales's decision to delay the start of their leagues until January 2021 due to Covid-19 and the lockdowns currently in place in South Wales the following decisions have been made:

All games involving the Welsh teams in Premier Division 1 up to 1st January 2021 are declared null and void.

If restrictions on Welsh clubs are lifted in January 2021 they will play their remaining scheduled fixtures.

In this scenario final divisional placings will be determined on a points per game (PPG) basis. PPG represents the number of points gained by teams in all League fixtures divided by the number of fixtures played. If teams are level on points then goals per game will be used.

Should restrictions not have been lifted on Welsh clubs by the start of the reversed fixtures (30 January 2021) all remaining fixtures involving the Welsh teams will be declared ‘null and void’. In this circumstance the Welsh teams will have their original 2020/21 placements in Premier Division 1 protected.

If Hockey Wales and Welsh Government regulations allow competitive hockey to resume prior to the 30th January the expectation is that this will happen and all outstanding fixtures are fulfilled (excluding those already null and void).

If any of these Welsh teams wish to ghost for the whole season they must make this decision by end of day on Saturday 17 October.

23rd JunUpdate for 2020-21 Season - Covid-19 - Action Required

All clubs should keep abreast of any news items by EH on their website - either on their main news section or via the Covid-19 Support tab at the top of the home page.

Clubs should have had contact from EH on 18 June with regard to completing their survey which is in 2 parts. Part 1 relates to the Implications of Covid-19 and the second part to the Structure Fit for the Future although they can be answered separately. Please ensure your club has its say as this will, firstly, enable EH to get your views on how we can get on with preparing for the new season and getting a starting date. Then secondly, the way ahead for the 21-22 season.

Please note both surveys need to be completed no later than 15 July 2020.

12th MarVERY IMPORTANT - Covid-19 Virus - Coronavirus

In light of the ongoing situation with Coronavirus England Hockey recommends that people involved in sport follow the government's advice, which is updated on a daily basis on the Gov.UK website. EH has also produced an article which sets out what action club members, officials and spectators need to take to prevent the spread of the virus. This can be found by using the attached link or by clicking on the blue box on the Home page entitled News from England Hockey.

Presently there is no suggestion that our events should not proceed, but sensible precautions should be taken. Players, parents and officials who do attend our events should refrain from shaking hands before and after games and wash their hands with soap and water or an appropriate hand gel regularly.

If players and / or their immediate family and close friends have returned from countries where coronavirus is widespread, government advice is that they should self isolate. They should NOT participate in our events. This is the responsibility of the parents, players and coaches themselves and not something that WCWHL can manage and enforce.

Important - The Difference between Postponed and Cancelled Matches

If your match is cancelled due to the weather, pitch, travelling conditions etc and will be re-arranged on a new date both teams should go in and mark that fixture as cancelled. This is the only time the Cancelled box should be used.

If your match is not played because you, or your opposition, cannot fulfil a fixture (i.e. it will not be played at all) please DO NOT mark this fixture as Cancelled. Instead you must inform your divisional secretary who will take the necessary action on the website. (When you mark a unfulfilled fixture as cancelled it causes issues with the administration part of the website, which means unnecessary work on my part).

Thank you, Webmaster WCWHL

Cancelled & Postponed Fixtures - Action to be taken

If severe weather or travelling conditions have caused your match to be cancelled please go as if you are entering the result but only tick the Cancelled box. This will put the fixture back onto the system and once a new date has been agreed this can be put in and the fixture will appear under the relevant date. Both teams need to do this as it acts as confirmation that the fixture did not take place.
If your match does not go ahead because your opposition cannot raise a team, DO NOT enter anything on the website but contact the relevant secretary for your team to advise them - he/she will then take the appropriate action of cancelling the fixture.

Match Start Times

Clubs must ensure times on the website clearly reflect the correct start time of the match. In the event the start time of a match is changed after it has been confirmed with your opposition you MUST ensure you contact them and get confirmation from them, in writing, that they have this new time. DO NOT assume that they will just happen to check the site to see if the time has changed as there is every likelihood they won’t. The onus is on you as the home team to make sure the information is correct and up to date.

Use of Offensive Language

It has been brought to my attention that offensive language was heard during a match in the vicinity of young players. I understand this can sometimes be due to player frustration but clubs are reminded that all players (and supporters) should demonstrate the highest standard of behaviour before, during and after a game. Please treat everyone involved in your game with the respect they deserve.

You are reminded that the use of candidate umpires is only allowed in Divisions 2 and below and only one per match as per Regulation 8a ii). If you have any issues about the standard of umpiring these should be directed to your County Umpiring Association
