Become the Next Generation of Umpires


The Drakes Cricket League Umpires Association has launched a drive to recruit new umpires for the 2020 season.

Two training courses have been organised and the association is appealing to former players and cricket followers to become match officials.

The recruitment of new umpires is the top priority for the association. We need to recruit and train new umpires because numbers have dwindled in recent years as umpires have retired and recruitment hasn't kept pace with this.

We would ideally like to be able to staff every match with two panel umpires, but last season showed we are well short of achieving that goal. At the recent League AGM Clubs voted to provide Club Umpires at all Home & Away 2nd XI Competition League fixtures.
