Five members of the cricket club have been hard at it on the final Saturday of the month, studying for Umpire tickets! The five, Natalie Hunt, Vinnie Clark, Liam Reed, James Coles and Bill Leathes, are on a two-day weekend course to qualify as umpired with the plan being that all five will be able to put new qualifications to good use with the BCC junior section this season.
Nat Hunt says:
“Hi, I’ve attached a photo of the Bradninch Mafia (as we became known) studying hard today on our umpire course. It is so intense and complex but good fun. Day 2 tomorrow which ends with an exam!! We should know by Tuesday if we have passed. Help!”
Day two follows – good luck gang!
