13th AprNews from the Selectors

Just a very brief note following our Selection Meeting this week.
As already noted by Ian Hay we offer our congratulations to Simon Carr and Rob Dummer on their acceptance as members of Southern Counties HUA. One very rapid rise to fame and one that took slightly longer but this just shows there is no set period of time to achieve this accreditation.
Congratulations are also due to Mo Shah, Adam Fleming and Gareth Hinds who have all been promoted into the RM grades and also to Paul Chapman-Hatchett who has been promoted to RM1. Well done all of you.
We discussed the merits of having 3 levels of grade within the RM section of our list and during the summer we are going to work towards aligning this a little more coherently with the 2 leagues that umpires at this level have to operate in. We are not sure yet exactly how this will work but we will issue new criteria during the summer.
more detail on the season will follow at the AGM in July and you are asked to note the date as shown on the home page in the top left.

8th Apr"Two birds have flown the nest"

It's always worrying for the parent bird when baby birds fly the nest --- just in case they can't cope or the big bad world is too daunting.
Two of our baby birds flew the nest yesterday and have, by all accounts, flown "South".
As the selector responsible for the Development Group, I am pleased to announce that two of my baby birds (Simon Carr & Rob Dummer) were successful in their SCHUA watching yesterday and can now buy their South shirts and a road atlas or sav nav for their forthcoming journeys across the eight counties of the South.
Well done guys from myself and from all your friends and colleagues at SHUA.
All the very best.
Ian Hay

1st Apr (2017)Head (and other serious) injuries

Council 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.
The link is England Hockey's policy on concussion.
From the Welfare Manager.
