Umpires and Scorers Courses at Trent Bridge in 2016
The Umpires course commences on Monday 11 January 2016 from 7.30 to 9.30 pm in the Radcliffe Road stand (usually the first floor suites) at Trent Bridge and lasts 10 weeks and the Scorers course is a six week one from Sunday 10 January 10.00 am to 12.00 noon with an option for a seventh week to cover computer scoring.
Students are free to take exams at the end of the courses to become certificated and progress further if they wish, becoming members of the GMSNCL Panel or officiate for their clubs in Divisions D and below with confidence and knowledge.
Both courses are usually £30 but are now in effect FREE as they are FULLY SUBSIDISED by the League on completion.
The venue and course content are amongst the best in the country and Nottinghamshire are the envy of almost every other county for delivery of their training packages and quality of tutors. They are excellent courses.
As with every other league, county and region across the country, we are suffering a serious shortage of officials and the future wellbeing of the GMSNCL league is at stake if we don’t arrest the decline. All clubs have a duty to assist and to help us to help them….
