LINDUM 1 (WOMEN)
yhalogoblue.jpgLINDUM 1 (WOMEN)
Lincoln Roses HC merged with Lincoln HC at the end of the 2014/2015 season and have changed their name to Lindum HC.
They have increased the number of teams they are running. However Lindum 1st team play in Division 1 North of the East League which is equivalent to our North Division 1.  To accommodate them at an appropriate level we decided and notified teams at the clubs meeting in June 2016 that at the end of the season 2016/17 they will have a play-off against the 2nd team in the Yorkshire Premier League who would normally be promoted automatically to North Div 2 SE.
The winner of this pay off will play in North Div 2 SE and the loser will play in the Yorkshire Premier Division the following season. 
The play off will take place on Sunday 23rd April 2017 at Doncaster, as part of the Yorkshire Cup Finals weekend.
We would normally insist that any new teams entering into the Yorkshire League should start at the bottom, but as this is a merger and Lincoln Roses have already started at the bottom division and worked their way through the leagues that this is the fairest solution, and ensures teams are playing at an appropriate level.

The above solution will affect relegation across the remaining non-regional Yorkshire League Divisions with three teams expected to be relegated in these Divisions (Premier, 1, 2 and 3).
Three teams will still be relegated from division 3 (positions 9.10 and 11). Although Division 3 is currently playing one team short we still need to relegate 3 teams as three teams are promoted from division 4 N & S.
Beyond that the fact that Division 3 only have 11 teams means that usual promotion and relegation will occur from Division 4N & S downwards.
We will indicate on the website against the league tables how many teams we expect to be relegated from each league.
This is very unlikely to change when promotion and relegation between North Division 1 and North Division 2SE is concluded but that will not be known conclusively until the North Division 2 play offs are concluded.

Match Result Reporting Weekend of 7/8 January 2017
yhalogoblue.jpgMatch Result Reporting Weekend of 7/8 January 2017
Senior Leagues: By 11.00 p.m. on Sunday 8 January all results (except two) for the Men's and Women's Leagues were on the YHA Website and by midday on Monday every fixture had a result or p-p against it!
This is a brilliant response from all Yorkshire clubs and one of the best we have ever had.
It's a fantastic way to welcome in the New Year and hopefully one that will conitinue!
Youth Leagues: Not to be outdone by their senior colleagues the Girls Under-10, Under-14 and Boys Under-16 league teams also had all their Sunday results, bar two, entered to the YHA Webiste by midday on Monday - another tremendous achievement!
In total 256 match results were added to the YHA Website by Monday lunchtime and we would like to thank all Clubs for their diligence and hope this continues for the rest of the season!

John's funeral is to be held on Friday 20th January at 12noon at the United Reformed Church, 81 Cecil Road, Hale, Altrincham, Cheshire. WA15 9NT. His family have family flowers only. It will be followed by a wake to celebrate his life, at the Mercure Bowdon Hotel, Langham Road, Bowdon WA14 2HT
Our thoughts and condolences are with John's friends and family at this time.

League Match Umpires
yhalogoblue.jpg
If you are having difficulty finding an umpire -
A message from Anne Bryant:-
a) The failure by either team in League matches in Divisions 4 and above for Men Clubs, Division 3 and above for Women Clubs, to provide Umpires graded EH Level 1 Assessed or higher will incur a fine of £25.
b) The match will be declared a 3-0 loss against the defaulting team unless both teams agree to complete it with Umpires who are not of EH Level 1 Assessed or higher. This must be clearly stated on the match report form and agreed between the captains 24 hours prior to the match.
c) A friendly game may be played and again this must be stated on the match report form.

FIH Outdoor Hockey Rule Changes 2017 Update
fih_logo.jpgFIH Outdoor Hockey Rule Changes 2017 Update
www.englandhockey.co.uk 21.11.2016
The FIH have recently published the new Rules of Outdoor Hockey (you can find them here), with the implementation date at international level of 1st January 2017; but National Associations have discretion to decide the date of implementation at National Level.

eh_logo01.jpgEngland Hockey has decided to implement these changes at all levels effective 1st August 2017, ahead of the 2017/18 season.
As a National Governing Body of the sport, we want to promote a consistent set of rules throughout all levels of our sport, as well as preventing any rule changes that are not considered “major changes” to the game to be implemented mid-season. After working with the EH Rules and Regulations committee, taking advice from all levels of the game, we feel an implementation date for the start of the 2017/18 season is the most sensible time to make these changes.
Details of the rule changes that will be implemented will be released over the Summer of 2017, to allow players, coaches, umpires and technical officials time to review these changes and plan accordingly for the season.
If you have any queries, please contact David Elworthy (EH Officiating Officer) at -email-

Junior Competitions Framework Focus Group
eh_logo01.jpgJunior Competitions Framework Focus Group
www.englandhockey.co.uk 08.11.2016
EH are looking for forward thinking people with experience of working in Junior Competitions who want to make a difference for the sport. Have you got the enthusiasm to help young hockey players develop and thrive within a new competitions framework for the sport?  
The England Hockey (EH) Board commissioned the EH Competitions Department to undertake a review of its Junior Competitions in the first half of 2016.
As part of this review a draft framework for Junior Competitions and underlying principles were developed. Clubs, schools, local competitions organisers were asked to feedback on this through a consultation process.
The feedback received offered clear insight that the proposed framework and accompanying principles were strongly supported. See here for a summary of the feedback
The England Hockey Board agreed that a time limited Junior Competitions Framework Focus Group (JCFFG) be established to help shape the detailed offer and model of competitions within the framework.

OUTDOOR RULES CHANGES
roh2017.jpgOUTDOOR RULES CHANGES
Outdoor Hockey (11 a-side)
FIH update the rulebook every two years so it’s worth checking you have the latest version. The 2017 edition of the rulebook, which comes into effect on January 1st 2017, is available below.
The previous 2015 version and amendment from February 16th 2016 can be accessed here.
Click here to download the Rules of Hockey 2017

The overall number of changes to the Rules for the 2017 Edition are relatively few and minor in nature. It was considered that there is currently no real need for any major changes, and that a period of Rules stability would be of benefit to our sport.
Otherwise, all other changes in this edition of the Rules are clarifications of existing Rules. To draw attention to all changes, even these
minor points of clarification, a line appears in the margin of any text which has been changed.
