Umpires are an integral part of the game and are always required; no umpires no game!
Offering the ‘best seat in the house’, ex players and cricket supporters / enthusiasts can put something back into the game they have enjoyed for many years.
The League and Umpires’ Association encourage more people to become involved. Umpires do not have to commit to every week, but the more umpires there are, more games get covered.
The All Rounder Cricket Bradford Premier League Umoires Association is actively looking for new umpires to join its panel
With the expansion of the League following the merger with the Central Yorkshire Cricket League, the Association would like to appoint two umpires to every fixture every week.
The Association would also like to encourage those who have been club umpires in the CYCL to become full members of the Association and join the panel.
Full training will be given for all who wish to join
Anyone wishing to join the Association should contact the Secretary, David Ratcliffe (see contact details at foot of page) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
