Allen Filer

It is with great sadness that I have to report the death of Allen Filer.

Allen has been both a long standing member and highly valued Ladies Appointments Secretary over many, many years.

His wisdom, knowledge and experience will be much missed.

We offer our condolences to Anne and all his family.

Due to the pandemic a private family service was held in Eastbourne earlier in November

FIH rules updated (still awaiting EH approval)

There have been some small clarifications to the Rules of Hockey by FIH on 4 November 2020. The updated rules can be found by following the link in this news item, but in summary the changes are:

Playing the Game - 4.2 (regarding the use of knee pads): “Knee pads, used for this purpose, may be worn outside the socks provided that their colour is exactly the same as the colour of the socks or black."

Playing the Game - 9.8 (clarifying this only applies to evasive action by opponents): "Players must not play the ball dangerously or in a way which leads to dangerous play.
A ball is also considered dangerous when it causes legitimate evasive action by opponents.
The penalty is awarded where the action causing the danger took place."

Field and Equipment Specifications - 1.7c of Equipment and Field specifications section (regarding goal nets): “the nets must hang outside, or be attached to, the side-boards and back-board, in such a way that the nets are loose and there is no possibility that a ball could rebound off the nets back into the field of play."

Please note that until the iPhone/Android app is updated, the above may not be reflected in the FIH rules app. ... More
