31 Jul 2019

My name is Tony Czifra. I’m a long serving member of Middlesbrough RHC, NCRHA and NRHA. From player, referee, Coach, Development Officer and a bunch of other roles thrown in. I’m still attempting to play now and again, and have 4 kids from 6-17yrs old who are all registered players for Boro.
I’ve taken on the role of Competitions Secretary to look to make us efficient, quick to respond, and as our new President says, offer a fantastic product to our current and especially new members.
This is certainly for our National squads, but also our regions, teams, referees, coaches and newest and youngest players.


My intention is to work with the Committee to ensure communication for all to all, the ability for all to be able to see every league, team and player statistic of every game played in England for Competition admin excellence that will be the envy of the rink hockey world. There are hurdles to this we need to overcome (ie The DPA2018 & GDPR), but we will get there asap.


I’m a massive advocate of streaming games (I was not happy I couldn’t easily watch the WRG), so will be working hard to ensure NRHA adapts to embrace technology and make our games accessible to all.

I am really excited about the Inter Regionals, National KO Cups and of course the wonderful introduction of National Leagues (Mighty Ducks! If you ain’t watched it, you need to!).


But I feel as a National Association we need to also showcase and focus on our grassroots teams, leagues and achievements in all our regions, as well as our


Premier, ND1 and National teams. So as Comps Sec I will be working with all the regions to do this, and the launch of our new website will be a key factor to success.


For instance, I want us to introduce ‘Player of the week’ videos on the site : a quick clip of a player performing, plus an interview with them – more on this as we go forward!


Finally, feel free to email me any questions, issues, ideas you have I WILL respond same day.


Alternately get me on Facebook, or text/call me on 07833 498102.


Best Wishes
