Congratulations are in order to a number of our umpires who on the basis of their performance in the 2019 season have gained accredited status with ECB ACO. We had a good number of candidates at two levels including two new umpires in their first season as Warwickshire County Cricket League umpires. Well done to the following :-
Umpire 3A level : Lewis Coyne, Kevin Edgar, Rob Evans, John Liggins, Ian Murrie, Bob Noon, Martyn Rawbone and Mark Waters
Umpire 2A level: James Cole and James Gratrix
Accredited status is awarded following evidence that the candidates have kept match planning diaries, have self assessed their own performance and established learning objectives to follow through in subsequent matches. They are also subject to two assessments undertaken by an observer umpire as well as taking part in a post season review of their season with an assessor. The above candidates are to be commended on the hard work they have all put in as part of their desire to become the best umpire they can possibly be.
