Further to the changes to the adult league structures for 2021-22, England Hockey, on behalf of the new Areas, have now shared the first sets of fixtures for the 2021-22 season.

The North and Yorkshire Hockey Leagues are now defunct, and Lindum HC now sit within the Yorkshire and North East (YNE) Area Leagues, with all information for each team below. One key change, particularly for the 3rd to 6th teams is that travel is now greatly reduced.

MEN

  • YNE Premier Division – 1st XI
  • YNE Division 1
  • YNE Yorkshire Division 1 – 2nd XI
  • YNE Yorkshire Division 2
  • YNE Peak & Wold Division 1 – 3rd XI
  • YNE Wold Division 1 – 4th XI
  • YNE Wold Division 2 – 5th & 6th XI

WOMEN

  • YNE Premier Division – 1st XI
  • YNE Division 1
  • YNE Yorkshire Division 1
  • YNE Yorkshire Division 2
  • YNE Peak & Wold Division 1 – 2nd XI
  • YNE Lindsey Division 1 – 3rd & 4th XI
  • YNE Lindsey Division 2 – 5th & 6th XI

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

A few points to note:

  • All Area leagues will begin on 18 September or 25 September (with exception of a few smaller divisions)
  • The fixtures generated aim to balance home and away fixtures for clubs
  • For the handful of smaller divisions (e.g. 8 teams) around the country, teams will play to slightly different fixture patterns
  • At Area level, October half term and February half term have league break weeks with the EH Club Championships running these weeks

You can find the fixtures here: Area Adult Fixtures 2021 – 2022
Select your area (Yorkshire & North East Area) and choose from the filters at the top of the page to find your fixtures.

The fixtures will be supported by a new Game Management System that will mean all fixtures and results are held in one place.

Please be aware that there are still a few fixture amends to come prior to final confirmation, so don’t go making plans too early!
