Have you ever considered umpiring?

By Tim Mansfield

Umpire resources and information about courses

The Westmorland League is looking to recruit umpires ahead of the 2021 season. There are a wealth of resources available as training materials that have been produced by the Lancashire Association of Cricket officials. These resources can be accessed at:


The latest offering is on Best Practice and is excellent.

We recommend that umpires who stand in the WCL have at least done ECB ACO Stage 1 Training and ideally Stage 2. Stage 1 is now available free of charge online. The details are here https://www.ecb.co.uk/be-involved/officials/find-a-course/Umpiring-courses There will also be a Stage 2 course online, but with 4 hours live interaction with a tutor from the Lancashire ACO. Details of the course will be on the ECB website via the same link as the stage 1 course. We are also talking about how we could have an interactive session outdoors in April before the season starts in the event that social distancing rules still prohibit an indoor session.
