Sussex Ladies KO 2017-18 (published 12-Sep-17)

The following has been sent to all clubs using a contact from fixtures live. If you've not received it, please amend contact details and let me know. 

It was noted at the Ladies Competition meeting that the current format seems to work but ideally there would be less teams in the Plate competition so that there was less of a wait in between games. The suggestion being a cup 'day' tournament for each division  (1-3). Organising 3 separate events alongside the ongoing cup comp throughout the season is a significant responsibility.  As such, I have devised a possible solution.  As the lower comp (Vase) is the one where teams are less able to sign up to (usually due to cup tied players who have been pulled to play in higher teams), my suggestion is that the Plate is open to Div one and top 3 teams of Div 2 (as it stands at Christmas). Then the Vase would be open for most of Div 2 (9 teams) and Div 3. This should result in less teams in the Plate.  It should also stop us reverting to a league cup, still allowing teams to play across different leagues. If this does not work, we can discuss again at the competition meeting and look to an alternative format. 

For this season, there will be 3 competitions running: 

Cup: Sussex teams playing in the Premier Division and above are eligible to enter.

Plate: Sussex teams playing in Division 1 and the top 3 teams from division 2, as it stands at Christmas, are eligible. 

Vase: Sussex teams playing in Division 3 and those 4th or below in division 2 (as it stands at Christmas) are eligible. 

The dates for each competition are as follows:

Cup First Round: 28th October 2017

Cup Second Round: 6th January 2018

Cup Semi Final: 7th April 2018

Vase and Plate Tournament day: 7th April 2018

Finals for all competitions:  Saturday 12th May. 

Please take note that the days are organised around league dates.  As such, they are often in school holidays.  Please take this into consideration when entering teams.  Particularly clubs with more than one team who may end up unable to field their lowest team on the Vase/Plate day due to availability. 

Sussex HUA will provide umpires for all rounds of the cup and for the finals of all comps.  However, each team must provide one umpire for the day to take part in the Vase or Plate competition on 7th April. 

Sussex are NOT charging teams to enter into any competition this season. 

If you would like to enter any of the competitions, please do so by responding to this email.  State the team, the competition they wish to enter and the best person for me to contact with competition details. 

DEADLINE:  Cup entries must be received by Saturday 30th September.

You have until January 6th to decide if you wish to enter into the Vase or Plate competition. 

If you've any questions before deciding, please do ask.  You can email me or call me on 07528536388.

All the best,

Christina Procter.

SHA AGM Officer Change (published 01-Jul-17)

A big thanks to all the clubs that made it to the AGM. There were a number of notable absences from clubs that had won various leagues this year. A real shame that some of the larger clubs failed to represent themselves.

The meeting said a huge thanks and farewell to outgoing President Maureen Glynn after 10 years of service as President, and also to John Murphy who has stood down as County Chairman after a superb tenure of active involvement at all levels of hockey. They will be replaced by (on the left of this photo) Mike Acott as President and Ian Anguige as Chairman (on the right of the photo).

Officer Change - Mike Acott, Maureen Glynn, John Murphy, Ian Anguige.
