Dear members,
See below latest club news and developments.

CvB Umpire Academy Ireland Masterclass
Last Friday Railway Union Hockey Club hosted the CvB Umpiring Academy Masterclass. The masterclass covered a series of practical skills for umpiring. It was a great success with 61 participants from numerous clubs. We look forward to seeing you put your improved skills to use this season.
The participants were lucky to have Railways own, Rob Abbott as one of the tutors for the evening. Well done to all.
