As the season draws to a close we are already planning for 2020! Although, fingers crossed, we will hopefully have been able to provide two panel umpires to every game in the Prem and Div1 this season it has been a very close call on a number of occasions. We have lost, through various reasons, 10% of our umpires and unless these are replaced we will face games next season having to be officiated by a single panel umpire. This is far from ideal.
Can we ask all clubs to promote our umpires courses on 3rd and 17th November at BAC Preston, these can be booked through the website ECB.co.uk/get involved.
Thanks for your co-operation.
