Olympic Gold for Great Briatins's Women
riogold.jpgeh_shield_blue.jpgOlympic Gold for Great Britains's Women!
Huge, huge CONGRATULATIONS from the whole of Yorkshire Hockey to the GB Women on their stunning Gold Medal victory over The Netherlands in the Women's Olympic Final yesterday.
For The Netherlands, the world's No. 1 ranked team, the only team they feared meeting in the final was GB, and, as it proved, with good reason!
This was the second time that the teams had contested a major final in the past year or so and the second that GB/England has won. Back in 2015 England won Eurohockey Championship Gold beating The Netherlands in a penalty shoot-out after coming back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 in the last few minutes of the game.
The scale of GB/England Women's hockey achievements in the past decade may not be known to everyone but a good way to see what they have achieved is to look at the medal record for Captain Kate Richardson-Walsh who has won no less than 12 medals at Commonwealth, European and World level during that time, a fantastic achievement. She also won a further four medals won from 1999-2005.
After the match Kate announced her retirement from international hockey. Click here to see England Hockey's tribute to one of hockey's outstanding superstars.

Alan Neave
Alan Neave (1933-2016)
I am sorry that I have to give you the sad news that Alan Neave, (husband to Ann, father to Lesley, Andrew, Paul and Ruth and grandfather to 7) passed away peacefully at St Catherine's Hospice on Friday 12 August.
Dad was an active member of Guiseley and Farsley Hockey Club in the 1960s and continued to support them as an "Old Peculiar" at the annual Cardiff Hockey Festival.
We are in the process of making Funeral arrangements and will forward information once we have things in place. Please can you send a good contact for us to do this.
We do not have the huge list of contacts needed to inform for the many people Dad coached, umpired, played alongside and was a friend to, so the family would be most grateful if you could please pass on our sad news to any that might remember him.

Yours sorrowfully
Ruth Neave (daughter)

Why we're joining forces with cricket and netball
Why we're joining forces with cricket and netball
www.englandhockey.co.uk 26.06.2016
eh_logo01.jpgTeam Up launch dayEngland Hockey, the ECB and England Netball are delighted to announce we will be working together on an landmark project called Team Up for our upcoming home Women’s World Cups.
The next three years are a unique period for women’s team sports. England will host three consecutive Women’s World Cups; 2017 ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup, 2018 Women’s Hockey World Cup and the 2019 Netball World Cup.
All three National Governing Bodies are working together to build a fan base for women’s team sports and host the best possible World Cups, not only with packed crowds but also by maximising on the legacy they leave behind.
The initiative was launched at a special event at the finals day of the Hockey Champions Trophy, with Alex Danson and CEO Sally Munday representing England Hockey. This a significant date as it is exactly one year to go until the start of the ICC Women’s World Cup in 2017 and we are really looking forward to what we can collectively achieve for women’s sport.
It is vital that we use the World Cups to develop a participation legacy for our sports and we recognise that schools play a large part in the development of a sporting habit for girls. Since London 2012, hockey participation has grown hugely, and today's announcement is another milestone for the sport.
As part of this Team Up project we want to support schools to deliver our sports to ensure all girls get the opportunity to take part and love playing a team sport.
To do this we are currently developing an affinity scheme in which we want schools to sign up to be a ‘Team Up School’ and through this scheme we will provide support in the form of resources, training, as well as a number of other ways in which they can build up affinity points towards ‘golden ticket’ opportunities such as being ball girls for a World Cup Final!
If you know anyone interested in becoming a Team Up school, please register an interest here to be the first to find out more!

Player surveys re-open!
EH eh_logo01.jpgPlayer Surveys Re-open!
The Player Survey is back for 2016, giving players from across the country the chance to feedback on all things hockey to their club and to England Hockey.

A Nation Where Hockey Matters

It has been 2 years since England Hockey first gave players and clubs from across the nation the chance to feedback on everything hockey related.  There was an amazing response from across the nation and it is now time to re-open the Player Survey as a development tool for clubs.  England Hockey have commissioned the
Sport Industry Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University to conduct this research on their behalf.
