8th JulPlayer Transfer Form (Updated July 17)

The Player Transfer Form has been updated to reflect the change made, allowing Club Captains to sign the form.

This only relates to players who have played any league matches during the current season for the club they wish to leave and does not relate to pre-season registration of players. The form needs to be printed off and once completed by the ‘leaving’ club it needs to go the ‘joining’ club, preferably by scanning and emailing it. Once the ‘joining’ club has completed their section it needs to be scanned and emailed to ALL the relevant secretaries for the division(s) your team(s) play in.

6th JulUpdating Club Information

Clubs are reminded they need to update their information on the website no later than 16 November 2017. Failure to do so will incur a fine of £25 (see Regulation 4 b) iii). However, changes should be actioned as soon as they happen so the information is kept up to date.

28th JunFixtures 2017-18 Now Available

The fixtures for the coming season are now available to download using the Fixtures tab on the home page.

Our leagues are of different sizes and if you have more than 1 team there may be instances where fixtures clash for whatever reason. If they do you can ask your opposition if they will swap the home and away fixtures. If they agree BOTH teams must put any changes IN WRITING, VIA EMAIL to your League Secretary as soon as possible so that the relevant fixtures can be amended on the website.

Also, clubs are reminded that you can always bring the date of a game forward but you cannot play it after the set date even if your opposition says they are happy to do so. The only exception to this is adverse weather conditions on the day of the game.

If your team is in an 8 team league you will play your opposition 3 times and in a 6 team league you will play 4 times, in order to get a fair number of games.

Names changes : Clifton HC is now known as Clifton Robinsons HC and Wootton Bassett HC is now Royal Wootton Bassett HC.

24th FebBad Weather Advice

Travelling/pitch conditions are the responsiblity of both teams. The home team should follow the advice given in the relevant section of the Regulations in the handbook. However, away teams can contact their opposition before travelling to ask for an update.
