YOUR LEAGUE NEEDS YOU
The Northants County Womens’ Hockey Association committee members have many years’ experience in the field. Current amalgamated ages add up to over 300 years between five of us. We no longer play the game but do try to keep abreast of all issues involving the sport. We do our best to keep the league running so that the County can benefit from the sport being available to all and that ultimately you can play hockey. To keep this going we are asking for some assistance from you as we need some new members to join us on the committee.
Ideally, we would like a representative from every club to join us, so that you can get your say on the running of the league and so that you can feed the information back to your clubs. The Committee meet about 6-8 times a year in a central location to discuss any issues that come up. It usually involves tea and biscuits. You could say that we are giving our blood with the reward of a custard cream at the end. We do this because we care about hockey being played in Northamptonshire. Without a Committee there will be no League.
If you think you have a few hours to spare over the next 12 months and you’d like to know more, please contact Sarah Blason the President at SLB@sprattonhall.com

Midland Regional Hockey Association 035 Masters invite
England Hockey are proposing to hold the first 035 Regional Tournament in August 2019.
I have agreed with the MRHA to canvass clubs to see if there is interest amongst the players in
entering a Midland 035 squad.
The proposed dates for a short programme of trials and training to be held at Wrekin College in
Telford, are as follows:
Saturday 23rd June – 1st Trial
Sunday 7th July – 2nd Trial
Sunday 21st July – training/games
Saturday 27th July – training/games
Sat/Sun 17th/18th Aug – 035 Tournament – Sheffield.
To qualify, players need to be between 35 and 39 in this calendar year. England work on a 5 year
age band as there is an 040 competition as well. However, as 34 year old players in this age band
qualify for the international squad next year the organisers are allowing those who are not 35 until
next year to play.
At this stage I wish to gauge the interest so could you please pass this information on to your club
players who qualify and ask them to send an email to email@example.com by the 12th April
2019 registering their interest.
A decision will then be made whether the Midlands will enter the competition and I will then contact
everyone one involved with further details.
On behalf of the MRHA
