11th JanShort Corner Master Class and Charity Day at Exeter University

Exeter University Hockey Club are hosting a charity day on Sunday 27th January, raising money for Hockey for Heroes. Using hockey as their sport to help, the Hockey for Heroes team work to raise funds for Help for Heroes, with their efforts dating back to 2012 and encompassing a mixture of exceptional physical exertion combined with playing hockey.

A brief overview of the day:
12:00 EUHC Ladies Chairman XI vs Hockey for Heroes Ladies XI
13:30 Short Corner Masterclass
14:30 EUHC Mens Chairman XI vs Hockey for Heroes Mens XI
BBQ, hot drinks and raffle tickets for sale throughout the day.

The day is focused around a double header; our Ladies Chairman’s XI will be up against the Hockey for Heroes Ladies XI, with push back at midday. The second match of the day will be our Mens Chairman’s XI vs Hockey for Heroes mens XI, pushback at 14:30.

We are also holding a SHORT CORNER MASTER CLASS SESSION, led by our mens and ladies 1XI players who have represented England U21. This is a great opportunity for children of all ages and abilities to get involved. It will be held on our Olympic standard water based astro here at Exeter uni at 13:30. We will be giving away a Exeter University playing shirt to the most improved boy and girl on the day!

We’re hoping to make it a great day and would love for as many people to come as possible, either to watch the games, to take part in the masterclass or both! We are not charging spectators to watch the games or individuals to participate in the master class, but we will have a donation bucket on the door to try and collect money for this incredibly important charity.

We will also be holding a raffle and have a BBQ and hot drinks on sale throughout the day. RAFFLE PRIZES INCLUDE a brand new Y1 Hockey Stick, 2x tickets to Exeter Chiefs vs Newcastle Falcons (23rd February) and a free Gym membership at Exeter University.

The day is going to be a great Sunday out, watching a quality standard of hockey, having a bite to eat and the opportunity to learn some new hockey skills from some of the best hockey players in the South-West. The focus of the day of course is raising money as much money as we can for a really good cause.

If you have any questions about the day please don’t hesitate to contact me, and if you could please pass on this information to your club members and parents we would really appreciate it.

Thank you in advance for your support. We look forward to seeing lots of you on Sunday 27th.

Best Wishes,

Ed Denton
Club Captain, Exeter University Hockey Club

31st Dec (2018)Club Treasurers - Contact Details

Can ALL Clubs please ensure that their contact details are checked and updated regularly.

DHUA have today issued invoices for appointments made during the first half of the 2018/19 season and a number of Clubs have either not provided their Treasurer's details or have not updated their contact information resulting in additional time being spent unnecessarily.

Finally, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all and thanks for your assistance with this matter.

29th Oct (2018)Ken Creber

We are very sad to announce the passing of Ken Creber, after a short illness.
Ken was a passionate sportsman. He had soccer trails at Millwall before taking up hockey. He played in London before coming to Devon.
Ken was a stalwart of Torbay HC and Devon Dumplings and also represented Devon. He then turned to umpiring. He became a very successful and well-respected umpire and progressed to senior levels.
Many of us will have fond memories of Ken as a key member of the Devon Hockey community through the 70s and 80s.
He was also a very good cricketer for both Torbay and South Brent.
Ken was a popular and notable character of the era and he will be much missed the many who shared those times with him.

President DHUA

24th Oct (2018)New Web System Functions

As many of you will have noticed, the next part of the 2018 system upgrade has been implemented.
The major changes are in the personal and club administration areas, where both of these areas are now fully mobile friendly (i.e. they adapt and work on small screen devices as well as traditional larger screen devices e.g. PCs).
You should note that the layout of all functions in these areas will be different depending on the screen size of the device you are using.
In addition, the order of items will vary depending on the screen size and the day. This is so that, on mobile phones, the things you are most likely to want on a match day appear nearer the top of the page.
If you are logging on via a device with a small screen, you will see that there is an option to have "continuous login". If you select this option your log in details will be stored on your phone and you will be able to log in in future just by clicking the quick log in bar at the top of the Devon Hockey home page.
If you are a club administrator, but are not your club webmaster, you have a new function in the club administration area to remove access rights that you do not need. This will temporarily remove them from your pages and will prompt your club webmaster to remove them permanently the next time they log in. This will help you remove the functions you will never need (particularly for teams that you are not involved with), in case your club webmaster has been over-generous with your options.
If you are a club webmaster, you also have new functions in the View/Update Administration Rights programs to remove all access for a person or to add all access for a person. This means you need fewer clicks to set up the correct access rights for each administrator.

10th Feb (2010)Claiming Expenses for Cancelled Fixtures

If a game is cancelled and your have been appointed to it by DHUA please DO NOT enter any Match Feedback, including any transport costs incurred for the fixture in question as it causes all sorts of problems when we try an reappoint to the fixture in the future.

If you do incur any transport costs (e.g. because you travelled to the game and it was then abandoned before it was completed, cancelled before you got there, etc.) then please email the DHUA Treasurer with details of your transport costs (if applicable).

Also copy me in the DHUA Appointments Secretary so that your appointment for this game can be removed.
