Welcome to HockeyinEngland - the independent voice of English hockey

 

 

I told you I was ill!

                             (Spike Milligan 1918-2002)

 

Apparently that is the nation's favourite epithet, dreamed up by the comedian and co-founder of the Goons, Spike Milligan.  Unfortunately it's my turn to say the same, and take the opportunity to explain what is happening to this web site.

 

I've been running this web site, first under the title of TalkHockeyRadio, and latterly as Hockey in England, since 2005. I thought I would be running it for a good few years yet, but I recently discovered that I had an aggressive form of cancer and should be counting the rest of my years in months rather than days.

 

Much to my surprise I have taken the news rather calmly, as you may have the opportunity to find out.

 

So, what about the future of the site?

 

For the last few weeks I have pinched a few pages to document my progress, and write some hints and tips that I have picked up.  I've added to that some current affairs comments where I think I have expertise to do so.  To say this has gone viral would be an exaggeration, but it has certainly proved more popular than I would have imagined.

 

So, here is what I am planning to do:

Pages will remain largely as they were in March 2016 when we were no longer able to update them. We will re-assess the situation as the 2016-2017 season approaches.

About HockeyinEngland

 

Talk Hockey Radio, which has been started in 2005, became HockeyinEngland in 2014.

 

Our editor's story began in 1996 when he became a regular columnist for the old Hockey Sport magazine.  Although he has subsequently been a writer for a number of hockey magazines, including Push and England Hockey's own magazine, he went solo in 2005 when he started Talk Hockey Radio.  An on-line magazine was added in 2006 and a web site dedicated to hockey photographs (www.HockeyImages.co.uk) five years later.

 

After several years of covering the big hockey events (one Olympics, four World Cups, five European Championships, and a host of other major tournaments) he decided to concentrate on domestic hockey, specifically the England Hockey League, England Indoor Leagues and England Hockey Cup competitions. That's what Hockey in England is all about. We hope you enjoy the site.

WHY DO WE SUPPORT asthma.uk?

 

An amazing number of top sportspeople suffer from asthma, including some internationals. Unfortunately, in some cases it can kill. Our founder is one of thousands of sufferers in the UK.

WHY DO WE SUPPORT THEHOCKEYmuseum

 

THEHOCKEYmuseum has not been going for very long but it has done an amazing job in stopping a lot of our hockey heritage going to landfill.

 

WHAT DO WE DO TO SUPPORT THEM?

 

Purchasers of one-off photographs from our Pictures pages are often asked to make a donation to Asthma UK.  It saves us raising an invoice and the money goes to a good cause.


WHAT DO WE DO TO SUPPORT THEM?

 

We do a lot of photography for the Museum and try and publicise their activities whenever we can
