As NDHUA is affliated to the North Hockey Umpires Association (NHUA) we participate in a number of different meetings and we will post updates of the various meetings as and when details are available. You can also find additional information using the 'sub-pages' now available in the left hand side Navigation Bar.





North League Division 2 East (East Pennine) and North East League appointments are made throughout the season by the Appointments Secretary and forwarded to all umpires and clubs via the umpire liaison officers.


The Appointments Secretary: Jeremy Gough, can be contacted by email.


Appointments will be circulated to all in the neutral pool and will be available for download from the 'Downloads' sub-page that you will now see available in the Navigation menu).


Appointments for North League Premier and Division 1 matches are made throughout the season by the North Appointments Secretary (Annette Badger) and forwarded to all umpires via the North HUA web system ( .


Umpires must be confirmed by the Home team by the Tuesday evening prior to the Saturday match – failure to do this must be reported to the relevant Appointment Secretary and recorded on the match card. Any appointed umpire who has concerns about the pitch (e.g. faint markings, irregular surface, etc) must ensure comments are made on the match cards and reported to the NDHUA Secretary Jonathan Rew.


Expense Claims:
All officials appointed by the NDHUA shall be entitled to claim reasonable out of pocket expenses. Current rate is 25p per mile.
Claims for North East League and North League Division 2 East matches should be claimed from the NDHUA Honorary Treasurer who will circulate forms to relevant umpires.


Claims for North League Premier, North Division 1 matches and all EH Cup competitions (eg Men’s Vase, Men’s Trophy, Men’s Cup) need to be claimed from the North Honorary Treasurer.


Umpires Coaching Events

In an effort to promote and ensure a consistent approach to umpiring, the NDHUA have embarked on holding Umpires Coaching Events based around National League fixtures at Maiden Castle. Details of future events will be posted here and in Dan's Diary.


An Umpires Forum’s is held at the start of each season, so umpires and clubs can share and learn from experiences of others, including members who have umpired at a National level. A copy of the slides from the 2013-14 event are attached after the event.


Copies of the NDHUA Constitution and publications of Dan's Diary are available by selecting the 'Downloads' sub-page in the Navigation Bar.
