Cricket umpires course coming up soon

ASPIRING cricket umpires in the Whitby area can attend a new course which is coming up soon .

The pre-entry level (taster) training course is free and is being run at Scarborough Cricket Club, starting on Monday 21 November, running for two separate sessions of around two hours.

The idea of the course is for anyone who wishes to gain an insight into umpiring and then possibly attend the full England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) level one course, which qualifies people to umpire in local leagues.

It is being run by Scarborough and District Cricket Umpires’ and Scorers’ Association.

For more information, call training officer Fred Bernard on (01723) 583235 or association secretary Keith Local on (01723) 507384.
