25th OctClosure of M27 Oct 29th until Nov 1st

MOTORISTS are being warned as parts of the M27 are set to close for a whole weekend.

Those who are planning to drive on the M27 between Junction 9 and 11 are being told to plan ahead as deep reconstruction works are due to take place.

From 9pm on Friday, October 29, the eastbound M27 will close between Junction 9 for Park Gate and Junction 11 for Wallington.

The closure will continue through the weekend until 6am on Monday, November 1.

Signed diversions will be in place and traffic travelling eastbound should leave the M27 at junction 9 and take the third exit at the roundabout onto the A27 towards Fareham.

Drivers should continue on the eastbound A27 and re-join the M27 at junction 11.

A National Highways spokesperson said: "Congestion is expected, so drivers are advised to plan ahead and leave extra time for their journeys."

This comes after the work was originally planned to take place earlier this month but was cancelled due to bad weather.

Junction 9 for Whiteley will remain open and shoppers can still access the shopping centre throughout the work.

20th OctUmpires Subscriptions to EHO - Action Required for Refund by HHUA

As you will know we agreed at the General Meeting on the future of HHUA that we would repay our members subscription to EHO for this season if they were continuing as active members for the South Central Area. It is not yet clear how England Hockey will collect these subscriptions from you but we expect this will be through deduction from your expenses.
We need to move forward with winding up HHUA and therefore propose to remunerate you directly for this cost to the bank account shown on your HHUA record. You MUST therefore claim this payment from the treasurer (treasurer@hhua.co.uk) by sending an e-mail confirming your membership level. We will check this against our central list and then make payment to you.
THIS MUST BE DONE BY 30 NOVEMBER 2021 so that we can then start the process of closing the HHUA bank accounts. Later payment will not be possible. It may take a short while to process the claims so please do not chase for 2-3 weeks!!

Thanks

16th SepFIH Rules of Hockey

In January 2021, the FIH updated the Outdoor Rules of Hockey, which were adopted at international level ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. National Federations are allowed to apply discretion when to adopt these into their national hockey structure.
England Hockey have confirmed that the following changes will be adopted into the Rules of Hockey ahead of the start of the 2021/22 Season. The main changes to the previous rules are as follows:
Change in the guidance to rule 17.c in Field & Equipment
The nets must hang outside, or be attached to, the side-boards and back- board, in such a way that the nets are loose and there is no possibility that a ball could rebound off the nets back into the field of play
Change in the guidance to rule 4.2 in Playing the Game
Knee pads, used as personal protection at Penalty Corners, may be worn outside the socks provided that their colour is exactly the same as the colour of the socks or black,
Change in the guidance to rule 9.8 in Playing the Game
A ball is considered dangerous when it causes legitimate evasive actions by opponents
England Hockey is also confirming that they will continue to play the following match formats over the 2021/22 season:
Grade 1 Competition (EHL and Tier 1 EH Cup Competitions)
4 x 17.5 minute quarters, with no stopping of clock for penalty corners Grade 2 Competition and below (All other hockey)
2 x 35 minute halves
Page 1 of 2
A full set of the FIH Rules that apply to English competition this season is available on the Hockey Hub.
If, as a club, you have any questions over your goals/nets in line with the above change, please contact clubs@englandhockey.co.uk
If you have any questions over any of the other rule changes, please e-mail David Elworthy (Officiating Relationship Manager) david.elworthy@englandhockey.co.uk

9th SepUpdate to previous GMS/EHO update

EH have made the below announcement this afternoon concerning the current functionality of the GMS and what remedial work England Hockey, are undertaking to improve the user experience.

From an EHO enrolment process, we are experiencing delays between 30 minutes to 6 hours for your verification code. At its peak on Tuesday night, we had over 8,000 e-mails in a bottleneck within our servers. We have already completed a lot of remedial work and continue to work on this, but this has caused delays in receiving your verification code.

Due to the delay in receiving your verification code, users have left the verification screen and then, on receipt of their verification code, have gone back into the GMS portal to get to the verification screen again.

This process is making your first verification code “null and void” and re-instigates the request process for another verification code.

If you have the time, when at work or at home, could I please suggest the following that has worked for other members of the officiating community that I’ve spoken to:

Go to https://gms.englandhockey.co.uk
Enter your e-mail and press submit
DO NOT CLOSE your browser window, please leave this on the verification code screen.
Once you receive your verification code, enter this and press proceed.
Complete the EHO registration form and press proceed.

This process reduces the re-instigation of the verification code generation process.

If you are a previous OMS user, we have been guided by the ICO that we need you to go through the verification process as this shows that you are consenting in

As I have said before, we fully understand your frustrations on the process so far and please be assured that we are working as hard as we can to resolve this.

I’ll be back in touch when the backlog of e-mails containing verification codes have been cleared so you can experience a smoother joining process.

Thanks for your patience.

Kind Regards
David.
