APPLICATION OF THE RULES OF HOCKEY IN ENGLAND FOR THE 2019/20 SEASON

eh_logo01.jpgAPPLICATION OF THE RULES OF HOCKEY IN  ENGLAND FOR THE 2019/20 SEASON
The FIH published the new Rules of Outdoor Hockey in December 2018. These took effect internationally from 1 January 2019, but National Associations have discretion to decide the date of implementation at national level. As communicated on 18th December 2018, (click here) England Hockey chose not to implement the changes during the 2018-19 season.
England Hockey can now confirm that it supports the implementation of all the rule changes with the exception of one.


Therefore the following (major) changes will be implemented at all levels of the sport in England from the start of the 2019/20 season:
• Removal of Player with Goalkeeper Privileges (PwGKP)
• Amendments to Attacking Free Hits within the 23m
• Defensive Free Hits awarded within the defensive circle
• Amendment to ruling around Attackers entering the circle early at a Penalty Corner

England Hockey has, in recent years, striven to apply a consistent set of rules throughout all levels of the sport, however, the proposed change to 15-minute quarters has caused considerable concern. Since December England Hockey has been considering the full implications of the rule change including research on the impact on game length consultation with officiating bodies and discussions with other hockey governing bodies around the world.
England Hockey has also been liaising with the FIH to understand whether they were reconsidering the proposals in light of the number of countries opting to continue to play halves or opting to move to 17.5 minute quarters (without the clock stopping at Penalty Corners).

Phil Thomas
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Phil Thomas today, 12th June 2019.
Phil was one of Yorkshire Hockey’s most dedicated volunteers demonstrated by over thirty years extensive & innovative work to develop & improve the structure of Youth Hockey in our County and the North of England.
We will follow up soon with details of arrangements and a fitting Tribute.

Tribute to Phil from Norman Hughes posted on the EH Website
'Phil Thomas sadly passed away on Tuesday morning 12th June 2019.
Phil had worked many years as a stalwart for Bradford HC where he had played as a full back.
On retiring from playing Phil dedicated himself to developing Youth hockey structures in Yorkshire. Phil was a teacher and he realised that boys did not get the opportunity to play hockey at school. In 1990 together with a few colleagues he started up a Yorkshire Youth League for Boys at U16 and U18 level. From this small beginning the Youth Leagues began to blossom. In 1992 the leagues were replicated for girls. Yorkshire Youth Leagues now cater for both Boys and Girls from U10 up to U16 level. Over 2,500 young players benefited from playing in the leagues in 2018-19 season and stars like Barry Middleton have much to thank the leagues for.
Phil became chairman of the league – a position he held until his death and spent many hours each week ensuring teams were informed of the venues and opposition etc. Whether booking facilities or nudging clubs to enter more teams Phil worked tirelessly to ensure a quality product for Yorkshire’s Youth.
Phil also gave a great deal to North Youth structures being the Chair of North Youth Committee and West Yorkshire Hockey Development Group. He sat on Yorkshire and North Hockey Association committees ensuring that Youth hockey had a voice.
Phil received several awards Nationally and locally for the work that he delivered but awards did not motivate him.
Nothing pleased Phil more than to see dozens of kids having fun playing hockey.
His wife Christine was his greatest supporter throughout helping run the finances of YYHL and constantly supporting his work. They formed a great team for hockey.
Hockey will miss Phil Thomas. A man who gave so much and wanted so little back.
