The latest Umpires Course was completed and as always the Exam was very demanding. Candidates must achieve the pass mark of 80% in the four elements which comprise the exam, the Written paper, the Multiple Choice paper, the Oral test and the Measuring exercises.
The standard of the candidates has proved to be very high and congratulations go to Bill Neal, Clive Nuttall, Eoghain O'Bradaigh and John Wilson.
There will be a new Umpires Course being run in early 2023 by Ron Jones.
Anyone wishing to join can get more details from Roy Saunders firstname.lastname@example.org
