- Summer League 2017

Newmarket Hockey Club – Summer League – 2017 – Your Questions Answered.

What is the idea of Summer League?

Summer League is intended to be a fun and relaxed hockey tournament, with mixed teams of mixed ability and ages.  The aim is to meet other Club members from outside your team, guide some of our youngsters along, have fun, have a run around, score a few goals.  We aim to accommodate all.

When is it?

Starts Wednesday, 7th June and runs for 6 weeks, until the 12th of July.

Starts at 7:00pm and will run until 9pm. **new time!

You don’t need to be able to make every session, just be sure to let your captain know.  If you need to leave earlier or can only arrive later, this is fine too.  Teams will have additional players to accommodate this.

How do I get involved?

Please let Mel Podd know.  Please can you either send me a Facebook message or email me on:  mel.nhchockey@gmail.com.  If you would like to play as a Goalie or are available to Umpire, please can you also mention this.

Who can take part?

Summer league is open to all Club members, Juniors over the age of 13 yrs, back-to-hockey players, friends, family, parents, and new-comers who would like to try hockey for the first time in a fun and relaxed manner.

We are looking for:  Players, Juniors, Goalies, Umpires, Spectators and helpers.

Who is running Summer League and can I help?

Summer League is run by Mel Podd.  There is a lot to do to bring you Summer League and any help will be appreciated!  They are a variety of tasks and if you would like to be involved in the running of a tournament, please contact me.

How much does it cost?

£20 payable in cash to Mel Podd on the first night.  Please don’t forget to bring your money!  It is £20 flat rate regardless of how many times you can attend.

What should we bring?

Usual Hockey stuff: stick, shin pads, water.  Gun shields and Shin pads are mandatory for all under 18s.  If you don’t have a hockey stick, we have some spare ones, please let Mel know, and we will make sure you have one.  For juniors, please be aware of the weather, we can expect rain and hopefully some sun, bring relevant items for this.

How do the teams work?

This is dependant on how many people confirm that they would like to play.  There are to be 7 players on pitch, and three of them must be ladies, at all times.  If we have goalies, this will count as a player.  Players can be borrowed from other teams if you are short on the night, provided this is agreed by your opposition’s captain.  The teams will be assigned shirt colours.

Captains will be elected by the team on the first night, and will be your contact point for the remainder of Summer League.  Please let them know if you cannot make a week, cannot get there for 7pm, or need to leave early etc.

What are the Rules?

The games are played on half pitches.  There will be two games on simultaneously.

Games will be umpired by two umpires, provided by teams that are not playing at the same time, or by an umpire who is not playing.

If we don’t have goalies:

All normal hockey rules apply, but as we don’t have goalies, there are no direct strikes on goal allowed, and no short corners.  The intention of this is to keep it safe for youngsters and new players.  In the event that we have 2 or more goalies who would like to play, see below.  Any goals scored from hard hits will be disallowed, and a 16 will be taken.

Infringements in the circle will have a long corner awarded.

There will not be any P-flicks etc, as players without goalie kits cannot safely defend against these.

If we have goalies:

All normal Hockey rules apply.  We will have strikes on goal, we will take short corners.

It will be the umpire’s discretion to implement these rules, and all umpire decisions will be final.

Who Umpires the games?

Each team is required to provide an umpire for the game after you play.  This is an ideal opportunity to give umpiring a go if you haven’t before.  Captains will be required to arrange/provide these for the next game to commence.  You can borrow one from another team.

What are Captains required to do?

Arrange the team on the night ready for play.  Be the team contact point.  Arrange an umpire as required for games when you are not playing.  Make sure that the score from games played gets to Mel.

Any queries, please contact Mel.

Looking forward to it!

Cheers

- Junior Summer League 2017

Dear Parents,

It is with great pleasure that I as one of the main organisers for the event, invite all of the children of Newmarket Hockey Club to attend the 2017 Junior Summer League. This will run for six weeks commencing on Wednesday 6th June and finishing on 12th July. It will be at 18:00-19:00 each week.

The idea of it is to encourage the youngsters to have as much game time as possible and have a fun hour each week playing hockey. This will also help to keep them ticking over during these summer months. Whilst the proper season is finished, we as coaches feel it will be a benefit to the children to continue to play during the off months. We aim to play lots of small games each week and to make it as enjoyable as possible.

As is the same with the usual training sessions, they will need to have shin pads and a gum shield and if owned, bring their hockey stick. If not then there are sticks which we can provide for them to use during the session.

The cost of the summer league works out at £12 per child, which is payable at the first session they attend. This is £12 for the whole six weeks.This can be paid in either cash or by cheque made payable to ‘Newmarket Hockey Club’ preferably in an envelope with the child’s name on it for convenience.

If you think you will be attending one or more of the sessions, then please respond ASAP so teams can be organised and numbers confirmed. This will make it easier for us to decide how many coaches are needed etc.

Look forward to seeing lots of you there.

Kind Regards,
Ollie Trent

Junior Coach

East League Management Committee:
As you will be aware the East League Management Committee is made up of hockey people of various backgrounds, playing and officiating standards. Most importantly they are volunteers who allow more than 5000 people to play and enjoy League hockey each week during the League season. If you are able to spare a little time to help develop and take forwards our League we would love to hear from you. Similarly, if you do not like the way the League is run and want to help change what you see as the bad bits now is the time to step up to the plate. if you are interested please let League Chair, Rosemary Prince or League Secretary, Neil Liversedge know. Genuinely we would love to here from you!

2017-03-13
League Dates next season:
We can confirm that next season the dates where matches will be played will be 23/09/17 to 09/12/17. 06/01/18 to 10/02/18 and 24/02/18 to 16/03/18. ALL CLUBS SHOULD NOTE THAT 17/02/18 IS A LEAGUE SLIP DATE AND ALL TEAMS/PLAYERS SHOULD ASSUME THAT THEY WILL BE PLAYING ON THAT DATE! It was noted that slip dates for 2 weekends after the end of the season will have to be each side of Easter.

2017-01-27
Respect to umpires from both players and sidelines:
As this weekend is the first weekend where it seems we will probably get a full program of play tomorrow it is appropriate to issue a reminder to all clubs and players of their conduct towards umpires. Feedback from the ERHUA, County HUA’s and club umpires is that dissent is at an all time high both from players and from the sidelines. Put simply this has got to stop. We all know that player within our team who from the first whistle chats to the umpire from the first whistle but we never tell them to be quiet and we all know that guy on the sidelines who think it is a bit of “banter” to shout the odd smart alec comment when a valid decision goes against our team. As we, including the umpires, are part of the hockey family it is time to bring this behaviour under control. We encourage all clubs to remind their players and supporters of their responsibility under the England Hockey Code of Conduct, and yes it applies to all players and all supporters both before, during and after the game. We can’t play the game without umpires, they volunteer to give their time so that we can all play the game and we MUST give all umpires a positive level of support and encouragement.

2016-11-15
Confirming Pool Umpires:
Are you your clubs Umpire Liaison Officer or the man or lady responsible for confirming your teams Pool Appointed Umpires. We have been asked to remind you that if you are lucky enough to receive appointed umpires it is your job to confirm the final details of your home games by 9.00pm of the Tuesday prior to the match being played. A vast majority of clubs do, however there are a small number of clubs who do not and if you continue to try to confirm your umpires after the deadline you run the risk of the umpires being allocated to other games or the umpires deciding to do something else with their Saturday. It will be your job to explain to your players why their game is called off and, potentially, have to explain why your team has had League points deducted. You have been warned in the nicest possible way.

- Newmarket Umpire Posts

The AGM will be coming up and if anyone wants to take on the role of ULO then I will be happy to pass the role on.

Junior Hockey is running from 6-7pm in June and July. They will be playing games in their age groups so umpires would be appreciated.

Summer League Hockey will run on the same evening as the juniors and umpires are usually picked from the teams not playing – but it is good experience.

Update from Newmarket Hockey Club ULO

We have an opportunity for support/coaching with Barry Anderson (to be arranged) in September. I will confirm everything but it would be good to see all captains, VCs, umpires and anyone else, interested in creating a better relationship between umpires and players.

Umpires for Junior County finals day – Sunday 23 April

Dear All

As the League season has now finished you are probably all thinking that’s it for another year and I don’t want to do this job again!

May I take this opportunity to thank you all for doing one of the most difficult roles in a club and for providing umpires for all your club League matches and for Pool matches when required. I do not under-estimate the time and effort this takes and the stress this can cause as we all know a match cannot take place without umpires and with a lot of goodwill this is achieved every week.

I do however have one last request. East Young umpires usually provide umpires for all our Junior County Finals day tournaments but they are only able to provide for the U15 boys and girls this year. The U14 and U13 boys and girls also have Finals on Sunday 23 April and Counties are being asked to provide an umpire for these dates. I have already informed our Cambs HUA and a message has gone out to Pool umpires but as we have 4 venues to try and cater for I thought you might have some Club umpires who might be willing to do this. Petrol expenses will be paid.

The venues are as follows:

U14 boys & girls – Rushmere Sports Centre, Ipswich – 2 umpires
10 – 6.00 pm

U13 boys – UEA Norwich 10.30 – 4.30

U13 girls – Bedford Sports Centre – 1 umpire 10.30 – 4.30

Please let me know if you have anyone willing to help out so I can give them some more details.

Many thanks and hope you all have a good Easter

Kind regards

Sally Tippen
East Competitions Chair
Cambs Youth Chair

Vicky’s Summary Email

I started the season with 17 umpires of which 6 were unassessed, planning to have 4 assessed this year.
On the request of our Chairman, we sent an additional 11 volunteers on the L1 umpiring course.

The number of umpires is now 28 of which 13 are unassessed.
I got 4 assessed over the season with a few on the cards for early part of the new season.

3 umpires have been on the umpire developer course, meeting the new England hockey criteria of having 1 in each club.
A number of newer umpires have been coached or observed by more experienced umpires to help them develop.

22 umpires have officiated this season
Umpires that have officiated:
more than 15 games: 4
Between 10-15 games: 3
Less than 5 – 10 games: 7
4 games or less: 8

Of the new umpires completing the course since the start of the season
4 have umpired at least 1 game

1 has been assessed

Thanks

- Week 24 Results – Historic Promotion for Ladies’ 1s

Ladies’ 1s: 3-1 win vs Long Sutton 1 (Home)
(G. Evans, L. Evans, Thomas)

CAPTAIN EVANS FIRES NEWMARKET TO DIVISION 1 IN THE BATTLE FOR PROMOTION
With only a point required to secure promotion, in what was to be Newmarket Ladies biggest game in their history, the job was quite simple – do not lose! To add pressure to the situation, if visitors Long Sutton win, it would be them who’d overtake Newmarket in 2nd place and go up. Newmarket had lost the reverse fixture 3-0, and were once again stunned by the visitors early on, as they went ahead inside three minutes. The ball was whipped into to the centre of the ‘D’ only for the Long Sutton striker to latch on with the slightest of touches, to put an unstoppable finish past keeper Sue Bullimore. The home side had been rattled and Long Sutton did not let up in the proceeding minutes, lashing a shot just wide of the post from the right-hand side. Slowly but surely, the hosts started to find their feet though as Grace Evans tested the away keeper in the 23rd minute, but her close range slap shot at the far post was an easy collection before Hayley Stoneman curled her shot just wide eight minutes later. Now growing in confidence, Newmarket got the all important chance they needed, winning a penalty flick through a short corner that was stopped on the line. Ignoring the importance and magnitude of this flick, Captain Lydia Evans didn’t disappoint as she confidently flicked the ball into the side netting. 1-1. Late into the first half, the game was momentarily stopped, as Grace Morris was at the receiving end of a lifted ball, with the youngster requiring medical attention on the side line. Then, four minutes later, Grace Evans put the home side ahead out of nowhere. The ball into her was difficult to control, but she pulled it down brilliantly, drove into space before firing into the bottom corner, pointing and dedicating the goal to the injured Morris . 2-1. After the break, the Yellows could have put further daylight between them and the away side, but their keeper pulled off a fantastic stop to deny Claire McDonnell a goal. Long Sutton were still a constant threat, but for all their possession and chances, Town’s back four of Rebecca Barnes, Rebecca Bunning, Gail Parkins and Kerry Alderson were in fact only forced to make meaningful tackles on a handful of occasions. The mercurial midfield of Lydia Evans, Claire McDonnell, Hayley Stoneman and Jess Logan appeared to be at their best, combining well together and putting the away team under constant pressure. And with 14 minutes from time came the chance that Newmarket’s pressure merited through another short corner, as Lydia Evans fizzed the ball to the right hand post for Di Thomas to deflect into the roof of the net, securing the all-important win. The result sees the Newmarket Ladies 1st XI go up into Division 1 for the first time in their history.

Ladies’ 2s: 0-4 loss vs Huntingdon 1 (Away)

“So long and thanks for all the fish”
Huntingdon 1s helped Newmarket L2s say farewell to 3NW with true grace and style, familiar faces greeted us after our journey through chocolate box villages to Sharnbrook.
In an uncharacteristically even “game of two halves”, Newmarket held Huntingdon to 4-0 loss, there were good goals, scrappy goals and disallowed goals.
Newmarket once again were able to show their ability to defend short corners, with Hunts scoring only one goal from these multiple opportunities. Newmarket did give Huntingdon defence and GK a little action: a solid performance from midfielder Emma Lankfer, in her last match for Town (university life, hockey and oh yes degree is calling) afforded Sophie Kelly some near misses. Hannah Fox showed determination in both halves, utilising passes and carrying the ball to opposition D with confidence. Zoe Bailey found the keeper’s pads with a reverse stick sweep at full stretch but nothing quite got between the posts.
Coach would like to thank all ladies who have played for L2s squad this season for their efforts in training, their persistence in defeats and to remind them that in 2017-18, the only way is up.

Ladies’ 3s: 0-9 loss vs Cambridge South 2 (Away)

Saturday saw the ladies with an early start heading to Cambridge to take on Cambridge south 2s in the rematch, which would be their final game of the season.
The ladies knew that South would be coming hard at them, and they were not wrong. The game equally started strong for both sides with Newmarket battling and fighting for every ball. The score was held at 0-0 for the first 20 minutes of the game, with every Newmarket player absolutely giving 100%.
Although South managed to put 3 into Newmarket’s goal by half time, they were evidently shaken by how difficult Newmarket were making it for them, through good tackles and interceptions.
Captain Mel Podd and coach Colin Seakins were very pleased with the teams performance against a side that were determined to put away as many goals as possible on the day.
Man of the match went to Callie Plumb for her epic midfield play.
The team were able to go home with heads held high, knowing the despite the score line, we had made them work hard for their win.
It was a great end to the season for the Ladies’ 3s.

Ladies’ 4s: 5-0 win vs St Neots 3 (Home)

- Week 23 Results – Thomas Hattrick Sets Up Grandstand Finish for Ladies’ 1s in Epic City Clash

Men’s 1s: 1-10 loss vs Harleston Magpies 3 (Away)
(Pears)

The less said about this one, the better.

See you next season. #wolfpaktakeover

Men’s 2s: 5-0 win vs Lowestoft Railway 2 (Home)
(Lowestoft Conceded)

Mr Baker is not impressed.

Ladies’ 1s: 4-3 win vs Cambridge City 3 (Home)
(Thomas 3, L. Evans)

After losing to league leaders St Neots last week, Newmarket Ladies 1st team had an epic battle to face knowing they had to beat second placed Cambridge City to still have a chance of being promoted to the first division.
With the home crowd support and a positive frame of mind Town were up for the 3 point battle.
City were looking the most threatening in the first ten minutes, especially on the break.
Newmarket youthful forwards Jess Logan and Grace Evans provided pace up front for Town to release quick balls through midfield. After a tussle in the D Newmarket were awarded a short corner. Injector Di Thomas passed straight to Lydia Evan who unleashed a bullet of a shot in to the bottom left hand corner-her third goal in as many weeks.
Now with the wind in their sails Newmarket relaxed and after good intercepting from Becka Bunning and Becca Barnes, Claire McDonnell raced up the pitch with the ball. She squared to Beth Wombwell and Thomas arrived in front of the keeper to deflect her shot home.
Cambridge were not going to give up and after half time found the two goals they needed-one from a very skilful short corner play.
Hayley Stoneman played a key role in generating the play for Newmarket in midfield and worked tirelessly with Gail Parkins to get the ball out of the danger zone. Jersey Bennett made her first team debut in the Town goal and displayed neat, controlled keeping.
Coach Nick Thorpe made an inspired substitution – switching Thomas to a forward role making the defence think. Within the space of 5 minutes of continued pressure on the Cambridge defence, Thomas scored twice – a close range slap in to goal and a trademark reverse stick flick giving her a hattrick during the match and Town a two goal cushion.
With five minutes remaining the play looked frantic and it took all Newmarket’s energy to keep Cambridge at bay. With two minutes remaining City scored but it was not enough to take a share of the points.
Newmarket’s final game of the season is against Long Sutton at home next week, and if Town draw or win – this will be enough to give them second in the league and promotion to division 1. However if Long Sutton win, they will get the promotion spot-so a very competitive game awaits the side.

Ladies’ 2s: 3-0 win vs Wisbech Town 3 (Away)
(Bailey 2, Fox)

L2s travelled to Wisbech for a long awaited “clash of titans with a small t”. The fate of both teams is sealed. Relegation awaits, the pressure off, and a lovely game of hockey was played. Support was good natured from both sides and Wisbech did not disappoint with teas: fantastic cake and genuine chat and banter between experienced players and emerging talent alike.
Man of the Match was shared between Emma Lankfer and Captain Zoe Bailey for creating 2 of the 3 winning goals. The first fed by Emma to Zoe waiting just wide of left post, a Wisbech defender caused the ball to elevate and Bailey used 3D skills to control the ball, shooting when it was just off the ground to the inside of far right post. Newmarket’s Milou Ottolini battled well in midfield and took this attitude within the opposition D to win many short corners. Hannah Fox converted one of these opportunities sending the ball between the posts when so many had swerved wide. Wisbech’s defence held strong and the third goal came long into in the 2nd half after long corner. Taken by Steph Heslop, passed to Emma Lankfer who carried the ball to the top of the D, making the shot and Bailey (possibly “poaching”) connected a reverse stick to bring the score to 3-0.
Next week L2s travel to Huntingdon for elevenses, playing a match postponed by the frosts of earlier in the year.

Ladies’ 3s: 1-2 loss vs Cambridge South 3 (Away)
(Dryland)

Saturday saw the Ladies 3s in sunny and very warm Cambridge to take on Cambridge South 3s, in an usually late game.
The game started well for the ladies with plenty of good possession and strong drives down pitch. Megan Pithers and Gabi Asker joined the ladies for the day and were both commended on their fantastic work rate and effort that they put in. Laura Excell drove down the left wing playing the ball back into Gabi and into the D. Short corners were awarded to the ladies but unfortunately Newmarket had trouble finding anything that wasn’t either wide of the posts or a goalkeepers pad. Laura Excell received a ball to the knee from a keepers kick that saw her take some time on the sidelines.
In a game that was dominated by Newmarket, South had 2 breakaway runs into Town’s D and on both occasions slipped the ball past keeper Helen Atkinson to take us to 2-0 down.
The second half started with sub Mel Cummins permanently stationed at the left post, and the ladies creating many more opportunities. A short corner routine saw Jane Dryland with the ball at top D, sending a strike deep into the back of the goal to bring the score to 2-1.
Town battled on fearlessly to try and win more and try to get the elusive goals. Georgia Atherton had a great game as sweeper collecting, intercepting and sending any stray balls back up pitch. With time running out for Town, another flurry of shot corners saw the girls desperately trying to even the score, to no avail.
Coach Colin Seakins was very happy with the ladies performance which was not reflected by the scoreline, stating it was some of the best hockey he’d seen from the ladies.
Man of the match went to Laura Excell, for her tireless work throughout the game. A close second was Sophie Bell who put some incredible crosses in from midfield and just improves week on week.
Teddy was awarded to the ladies who put each others skirts on by mistake and had to change in the field!!
Next week sees the ladies back at long road to take on Cambridge South 2s at 10:30am, for their final game of the season.

Ladies’ 4s: 0-12 loss vs Cambridge South 2 (Home)
