Wombwell Cricket Lovers' Society - EH Umbers award for services to Yorkshire cricket

Terry Bemtham

The Society’s AGM took place last evening and among the many awards we determined there one is the EH Umbers award for grassroots service to the game in Yorkshire.
I’m delighted to advise that your name was nominated to receive the award and was unanimously voted in favour by the Society members at the AGM - many congratulations and it is very well deserved for your services (since the 1970s I’d guess?) as umpire, official and long-standing administrator with your many roles with the South Riding/South Yorkshire league.

At some stage I will be arranging a specially engraved Wombwell glass to present to you and if you are able it would be good to present the award at one of our winter meetings - I can chat that through with you in due course.

All the very best

Stages One and Two Umpire Education

Introduction to scoring IS

Stage one will give participants an overview of the basic laws and how to apply them and introduce the principles of field craft and match management. It gives the tools to enable a person to umpire a match at a basic recreational level

 Stage two will give participants further knowledge and skills and builds on what was learnt during stage one. It looks beyond the basic laws, builds on field craft and further develops match management techniques as well as the concept of teamwork

 To become a league umpire in South Yorkshire you will need to complete both stages.

 Please register and pay online at ECB ACO using the following links
