Essex County Hockey Association have been informed that details of a recent appeal are being released by an unofficial twitter account - @essexhockeylge. Not only is this against our Online and Media Policy, and the Think Before You Post guidelines, information about an appeal should not be released to the general public, whether you agree or disagree with the appeal decision. It was a properly constituted appeal consisting of three people, unconnected with the clubs involved or the League. They considered all evidence and came to their decision. The verdict was fed back to the Club appealing and the League, and this should have resolved the matter. To have selected parts of the evidence used to back one side of the argument can only portray a biased view that hampers the correct and official running of the League and the appeal procedure. Please follow the official Essex Hockey Twitter account (@essex_hockey) for the latest information from ECHA and EHUA. You can also like the Essex Hockey page on Facebook

It is with great sadness that we have to inform our members Frank Shepherd passed away on 21 September 2017. He had been diagnosed with bowel cancer and was responding well following an operation to remove the tumour. However, he became unwell and was readmitted to Queens in Romford where he sadly went downhill very quickly and passed away. We will all have our own wonderful rich memories of Frank as a player, umpire, a tourist and of course as a great friend and drinking buddy but all our thoughts will be with Jacky and her family as they come to terms with Frank's sudden passing. 11/10/2017 - Frank's funeral will take place at 13:30 on Monday 16th October at Forest Park, Hainault Crematorium. This will be followed by a gathering to remember Frank at Romford Hockey Club, Gallows Corner, Romford.

It is with great sadness that Phil Harvey, life member of Southend Hockey Club, passed away this week at the age of 46. Phil was taken ill and passed away whilst descending Manaslu in the Himalayas. Phil was an amazing guy with a passion for skydiving, cycling, climbing, and of course hockey. He had friends in just about every club in Essex and beyond. The Hockey Family have lost a brother, an irreplaceable character that just brought a smile to all that knew and met him. Sincere condolences to his older twin brothers, Mark (Thurrock HC) and Vince (Romford HC) and his Dad, Frank.
