As you will have no doubt understood from the Prime Minister’s announcement yesterday evening, the new lockdown means that ALL club hockey is suspended for the time being, both for seniors and juniors. This is likely to remain the case until the middle of February.
The East League are hoping to resume adult leagues at some stage, with matches potentially being played in March and April. Whilst teams will not now be able to play the entire fixture list it is likely that leagues will be decided on average points once all teams have played each other at least once. We don’t yet know what is happening with the Junior competitions.
Of course, we will continue to monitor the situation, and hope that we will have some better news to share with you soon.
In the meantime, we hope you all stay safe and thank you all for your support for IES.
