18th Dec (2017)Message from Kevin Burge

I would like to thank Paul and all the members of Sussex HUA for your kind gift following my leaving the Sussex area. I had 20 fabulous years with you all, umpiring, coaching, assessing and latterly presenting at Sussex events. I have many memories but have to single out my first cup final appointment umpiring with David Colbourne in the Plate competition, and my final umpiring appointment umpiring with the same colleague in the same competition, a truly fitting climax to my umpiring career with, in my opinion, the best Sussex umpire that I had the pleasure of blowing with in my time in Sussex. I wish you all well and promise I will be back from time to time to see you all.


To Glyn Crees who recently umpired his one hundredth game and to Will Chetwood who will reach the same milestone on the 9th December.

Well done to you both

6th Oct (2017)Rules of Hockey 2017 - misprint in rule 4.2

The printed rule books issued by England Hockey have missed out an important paragraph in rule 4.2. This is:

Field players
"are permitted to wear throughout a match for medical reasons only a smooth preferably transparent or white but otherwise single coloured face mask which closely fits the face, soft protective head-covering or eye protection in the form of plastic goggles (ie goggles with a soft-covered frame and plastic lenses); the medical reasons must be assessed by an appropriate authority and the player concerned must understand the possible implications of playing with the medical condition"

This is correctly included in the 2017 rule book downloadable from FIH or our website, and the link is included in this news item.

30th May (2017)Head injuries and other serious injuries

We would like to remind all umpires about the correct procedures with regard to head (and other serious) injuries.
In the event of a head (or another serious) injury, the game MUST be stopped immediately so that the player may receive appropriate treatment.
When and where possible and appropriate, the player should leave the pitch and only return to the game if an appropriately qualified medical practitioner allows.
If under the age of 18, the player with a head injury is NOT allowed to return to the game until he/she has been assessed by an appropriately qualified medical practitioner.
Please follow the link for England Hockey's policy on concussion.
