UMPIRES AND SCORERS
The Yorkshire Cricket Board have established a Working Party with the Association of Cricket Umpires and Scorers to develop a “Pathways for Umpires” programme.
The Working Party is as follows
lan Chappell (YCB) Chairman
Derek Shuttleworth, (ACU&S)
Ron Tindall (representing the Leagues)
A four fold programme has been developed to complement the excellent work of the ACU&S in training
Details of the Annual Seminar for all Umpires, to be held provisionally at Headingley in April 2005, will appear here in due course.
The Working Party has also drawn up a list of 16 Umpires from senior League nominations which will provide a panel for representative matches from Under14s / 15s upwards in 2004.
These umpires (who have to be under 60) will be assessed by managers and Assessors and the aim is that the best will be promoted to more senior games and eventually to County 2nd Xl level.
A Programme is being arranged.
An Introductory guide to scoring is now published and will be mailed to all affiliated Clubs on 6 April
