Without umpires and scorers it would be pretty difficult to have matches at all, but these sort of people are very thin on the ground. We always need to have umpires and scorers, as it takes pressure off the usual few. Claire Neely has very kindly arranged two evenings at the club, on umpiring and scoring. These evenings are aimed at those who have not had any or much experience doing it. Don’t worry – there won’t be an exams!
The umpiring evening is on Friday 25th March at 7.30pm, which will be taken by Graham Cooper, of the International Cricket Council (ICC).
The scoring evening is on Friday 8th April at 7.30pm.
Please come along and support your club – these two evenings will really benefit those who have junior cricketers at Long Ditton.
