Introductory umpires & scorers course held at UCC

UCC Cricket Club hosted an introductory umpiring and scoring course on Friday 6th February. The purpose of the course was to help prospective scorers and umpires to familiarise themselves with the basic techniques involved and to prepare them for the upcoming Level 1 umpires course which will take place in early April.

Gerard O’Sullivan, a Level 3 umpire and chairperson of the MCU Cricket Committee gave an extremely informative presentation on the pathway from ‘player/umpire’ to elite level umpire and the role that umpire education and assessment plays in the progression of new umpires. He also distributed an information pack to the course attendees which contains useful information on the basics of umpiring and scoring.
