Take first step on road to umpiring at Lord’s

The MCC have agreed a number of changes to the laws of cricket which will be applicable to matches played next summer.

These changes and the other Llws will be explained at a course to be run at Arundel Castle Cricket Club pavilion on Sunday, February 6 and Sunday 13.

With the game of cricket continuing to flourish in Sussex there is a need to train more umpires to ensure games are played within the laws.

The umpires have the best viewing point to watch a game observing all the action in the middle rather from the distant boundary.

The course is the first step in a career that could lead, if you have the wish to progress, to umpiring on the hallowed turf at Lord’s.

The game also needs scorers to accurately record all the runs and wickets and to produce statistics for players and coaches.

If you have an interest in cricket, why not consider being involved with the game at all times by becoming either an umpire or a scorer?
