To all Midland Clubs.

England Hockey are proposing to hold the first 035 Regional Tournament in August 2019.

I have agreed with the MRHA to canvass clubs to see if there is interest amongst the players in

entering a Midland 035 squad.

The proposed dates for a short programme of trials and training to be held at Wrekin College in

Telford, are as follows:

Saturday 23 rd June – 1 st Trial

Sunday 7 th July – 2 nd Trial

Sunday 21 st July – training/games

Saturday 27 th July – training/games

Sat/Sun 17 th /18 th Aug – 035 Tournament – Sheffield.

To qualify, players need to be between 35 and 39 in this calendar year. England work on a 5 year

age band as there is an 040 competition as well. However, as 34 year old players in this age band

qualify for the international squad next year the organisers are allowing those who are not 35 until

next year to play.

At this stage I wish to gauge the interest so could you please pass this information on to your club

players who qualify and ask them to send an email to [email protected] by the 12th April

2019 registering their interest.

A decision will then be made whether the Midlands will enter the competition and I will then contact

everyone one involved with further details.

Thank you

Steve Floyd

On behalf of the MRHA
