Conclusion of Season 2019-2020
England Hockey understandably directed the suspension of all hockey on March 17th. The date of its recommencement is yet to be determined.
For the bulk of the South League teams this left at least one scheduled match un-played and often also at least one additional match un-rescheduled.
Any decision on how to close the season was necessarily dependent upon decisions by England Hockey and the National League which have a direct impact upon us.
Those decisions were promulgated on April 29th and have been taken into account and largely followed by the South League in making its decisions. A prime conclusion is that there will be no more hockey relating to the past season.
