13 Jul 17  Trevor Hopkinson  Sadly I have to report the passing of Trevor Hopkinson. Apart from being the driving force behind Ely HC for many years he was heavily involved with County Junior Hockey and spent a number of seasons as a Pool Umpire for Cambs HUA. He will be sorely missed 

   3 Mar 17  Match Day Misconduct Offence (MMO).  Umpires who decide that they are going to Issue an MMO must ensure that on the day,  they inform the player concerned, that he is going to be reported. If there is difficulty in carrying out this action, require the team captain of the player involved, to bring the player to you, so that he can be informed.  Should you still be unable to inform the player make sure that the team Captain and the Club concerned are informed and that they confirm that the player has been informed. Alternatively inform the player by text or email. Record details of your actions on the MMO. Failure to inform the player that he will be reported will result in no action being taken against the player (Current EH disciplinary procedures). If in doubt contact a member of the CHUA committee.

1 Jul 2015. East League umpires lists. Recent changes to East League rules have resulted in club umpire lists being wiped clean. It is now a club responsibility to input their list of club umpires and their EH registration numbers, prior to the start of each season. Details of umpires registered by each club can be found on this website. Umpires must be current members of a CHUA and listed by a league club  to enable them to umpire East League matches. Independant umpires must individually register their names on the East League umpires web page.

See :

3 Nov 2012. Umpire confirmation. It is apparent that some clubs are failing to confirm venues and timings by the Tue evening before a match. You should be aware that unless you confirm, you run the risk that the umpire will accept an appointment elsewhere. East League rule 5 explains these requirements fully.

5 Jan 12. Comments and queries about the website should be addressed to the Appointments Secretary.
