UMPIRING NOTE

A reminder that club appointed umpires should umpire. They should not coach nor should they fraternize between innings – particularly with their own club members. Whilst an umpire is approachable by team officials for the duration of the match decorum should be observed. You are not friends and sometimes when you are in charge accept that decisions have to be made which may be difficult but you have to be unbiased, decisive and somewhat aloof.
