League Rule Change for 2016-17 Season

Please note the new Sussex Open League rule, which has been advised to clubs earlier and at the AGM regarding appointed umpires for Division 1 teams.

Each club represented in Division One will nominate to the League pool by 01 September at least one umpire for each participating team who holds as a minimum, the Level 1 assessed umpiring qualification and who has been approved by the Appointments Officer as having the appropriate experience and expertise. The nominated umpire(s) must, between them, be able to cover the whole season’s league matches.

Any club failing to provide the required umpire(s) for 6 matches (regardless of whether or not the games take place) will be fined. I hope that you all have taken action on this and already advised the umpires Appointments Officer of your proposed umpires for the first half of the season. Please check the umpires association website for contact details.

Please follow us on twitter. The latest weekly tweet will be available on @sussexhockeymen.
