Hope you are all having a good week - please see below for this weeks fixtures, results..and lots of club reminders!
Ladies Volunteering Reminder
A reminder that everyone is rostered for umpiring and for junior hockey covid officer duty. It is essential that you check the rota and make sure to attend your scheduled slot to ensure the smooth running of the club. If there are any issues it is your responsibility to arrange a swap.
The umpiring rota for October has been circulated. Also attached here is a provisional rota for the whole year - please note that this is subject to change with fixture swaps/changes in team selection etc. so please check back for any changes closer to your scheduled time. There is a box at the end of the rota with names of people only scheduled to umpire once so far. These people will be called upon for any remaining matches and should be willing to swap if another member of their squad is unavailable.
Thank you to everyone who has umpired so far! Can we please make sure we remember to all thank the umpires after our matches too!
