Umpires Training

Norfolk Cricket has a proud history of having good quality and respected umpires throughout league cricket. However, we desperately need new umpires to come forward an be trained in order for this to continue.

We are well aware that all trained umpires will not go forward to officiate on the panel (umpire in the Alliance, EAPL, Sunday Matches, NYC Matches) but even if you train and then umpire at your local club you will be putting something back in to the game and helping players have a better matchday experience.

Umpiring can be hugely rewarding and is a great way of interacting with cricketers at weekends in a way you may never have done as a player or spectator.

Please Note:
You do not necessarily have to have been a regular player in the past to be an umpire.
