The future is bright

Posted in ECB ACO

I have been travelling the length and breadth of the country delivering courses and attending meetings.

In terms of numbers I have now had 59 young people attend Young Umpire Awards in Wiltshire, South Yorkshire, Warwickshire and Leicestershire so the progress is there and the feedback from all has been good.

I am back in the office for the majority of the next fortnight but will be running another course for the Coventry and District Squads as well as joining Nick Cousins at County Board Management System.

This is an opportunity for us to determine how many officials each county board feels that it needs every year.

I will also be undertaking ethics training.

Apart from that I am now working on a strategy to get young people involved at the MCC Spirit of Cricket U13 National Club Championships as umpires, scorers and competition organisers.
