Cricket Leinster are delighted to launch a new club initiative: Meeting the Capacity Challenge in Umpiring.
This initiative is aimed at recognising those clubs whose members are active umpires and incentivising clubs to ensure they provide umpires from their membership. There is clear evidence that the lack of appointed umpires at matches has a material effect on the enjoyment of the game and on disciplinary matters.
The scheme has a long lead in time, this ensures that the clubs have the chance to identify and recruit suitable umpires.
The scheme can be viewed in detail here
Clubs can rest assured that Cricket Leinster and the LCU&SA will provide training, support and insurance for all new umpires under this scheme.If you have any questions at all about this scheme please do not hesitate to contact Paul Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org .
