Repeat of umpires’ courses

CRICKET: The Norfolk Cricket Board are running more umpiring courses early next year, one at Fakenham, following the success of last winter's training programme.

The 2010 courses saw 28 people achieve the Level One umpiring qualification and the programme is aimed at:

n Those seeking to umpire games for their club

n People wishing to train as an umpire to join the Norfolk Umpires Panel

n Players wishing to develop their knowledge of the laws of cricket

n Anyone with ambitions of umpiring at East Anglian Premier League or Minor Counties level and even higher

As with last year, there are two courses, one based in Norwich and the other at Fakenham.
