Our Game Needs Umpires
The North Staffs South Cheshire League is on a recruitment drive for umpires and we would like your help in finding some.
Please Read On……
- Whilst we would like our umpires to take the official course at some stage and gain the qualification, it is not obligatory, it’s their choice.
- Umpires can choose their Saturdays. We would be keen to hear from anyone who can offer any number of Saturdays through the season, and we will not try to persuade anyone to do more games than they want to.
- Some people are put off by talk of poor onfield behaviour. In fact, it is unusual for umpires not to be respected, and on the odd occasion where it does happen, there is a very robust disciplinary system to support the umpires.
- If you are an injured player or recently retired player and can only help out with a few games, please let us know.
For those that do fancy becoming a qualified Umpire, thanks to sponsorship from the league, Staffs Cricket, the cost of getting qualified, insured and kitted out is only £10 this year (normally £120). The umpires course will run on 3rd, 4th and 5th Feb, and closing date for entry is 20th January.
Give it a try…….you get paid for it!
