Do you have problems getting qualified umpires at your club to actually umpire for the club or are you struggling to attract new umpires?

Are your umpires up to date with current umpiring practice or are they struggling with specific areas of game management such as dissent

In either case Somerset HA are offering to run a workshop at your club (or group of clubs if you want to get together) to help you in these areas if they are of concern.

In the first instance please contact the Somerset HA Umpiring Officer Keith Dingle (keith.dingle@gmail.com) for further information.
