The Seymour District Cricket Association deseperately needs more officials out in the middle.By Chalpat Sonti
As cricket season comes upon us again, the call has gone out for more men and women in white coats.
Seymour District Cricket Association desperately needs more umpires for A- and B-grade competition.
SDCA secretary Ken Daniel said ideally there would be enough umpires to officiate at every game in those grades each week.
Jim Hadfield has been doing the job for 33 years and said it was a great way to continue on in the game.
‘‘I’ve enjoyed cricket all my life and I enjoy umpiring,’’ he said.
Umpires get paid a bit more than when Hadfield started — the rate now is $110 for a one-day game and $100 for each day of a two-dayer.
Daniel said training could be provided through SDCA umpire John Gilbert, who holds a level two qualification.
