The new Game Management System (GMS) is in place for the management of all England Hockey league & cup fixtures. An important part of this system is that every CCHC player and club umpire will need to be registered with Cambridge City HC on the GMS system, and this will form the basis for online team sheets for every England Hockey game, irrespective of area or level of the game. If you are not on GMS, we have been told we cannot select you for EH National or East league fixtures.
For more general information on GMS & how to register you can head to the England Hockey website.
If you have already registered with CCHC on GMS, you do not need to take any further action.
If you have not already done so, please register here. U18s must be registered by a parent. There is more information on how to register a child in our 'Youth Players' section further down this page. Please make sure to select Cambridge City HC, as there are several clubs with very similar names!
Currently there is no functionality on GMS for clubs to arrange and approve transfers themselves directly (in development). Therefore at the moment this is being done by GMS support.
🚨 If you are currently registered on GMS with another club, and transferring to Cambridge City HC, the releasing club need to contact GMS (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) to approve the transfer, and that the player in question has no outstanding fees or cards. Ask them to Bcc you on the email so you have a record it has been sent. GMS Support will then transfer you on the GMS system. To speed things along, please ensure you have paid any outstanding fees to your previous club, and returned any kit or equipment if requested.
🚨 If you are currently registered on GMS with Cambridge City HC, and wish to transfer to another club, please contact our GMS Club Admin email@example.com or via the contact card below. Please state the club to which you are transferring, and if you know it, their email contact details. To speed things along, please ensure you have paid any outstanding fees owed to CCHC, and returned any kit or equipment if requested.
U18s must be registered by a parent. If you are unsure how to do this, instructions, and also information on how to add a child if you are already registered on GMS as a player, can be found in the EH guidance below. Please make sure to select Cambridge City HC when you register, as there are several clubs with very similar names! The GMS registration link can be found here.
🚨 If you play for Cambridge City HC in an age group team, but play your senior hockey with another club, please make sure the youth section team are aware as they will need to ask GMS support to arrange your dual registration (if this was done last season, no further action is required). Do not try to re-register with Cambridge City HC in addition to your senior club as this will create a duplicate on the system.
All club umpires officiating in league fixtures need to be registered on GMS as part of the England Hockey Officiating Club (EHO). More information about the EHO and the different categories of membership can be found at https://www.englandhockey.co.uk/deliver/officiate/umpire/eho.
If you are a player who also umpires you will need to register on GMS twice using the same email address - once as a 'Player' and once as 'Officiating'.
Here are some common issues and how to fix them, taken from England Hockey GMS support emails received. If you are still having problems, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Log In Issues
If you are having login issues, please ensure that you are definitely trying to log in via https://gms.englandhockey.co.uk and NOT any whostheumpire bookmarks you may have saved. Also, if you have tried resetting your password, please return to the GMS url (as above) to login and do NOT use the login screen you are immediately presented with having reset your password.
Dealing with Duplicates
If you believe you have registered twice with two different email addresses, please let GMS (email@example.com) know which one you would like to keep, and they can now merge all accounts (and history) into the one you wish to keep.
Unable to 'Proceed' at first screen
If the 'Proceed' button on the first screen does not go live despite completing your email details, it may be because your email was 'autofilled' and GMS does not then recognise the field has completed. To correct, re-enter your email manually or click in the email box to set it live.
