Independent umpires in ECB National Club Cricket Championship
Monday 15th March 2004

The use of 'home appointed' umpires for the early rounds of the Cockspur ECB National Club Cricket Championship in the coming season is to be stopped as all matches will have independent, full ACU&S members appointed to their games.

For Liverpool Competition clubs playing matches at home, the appointments will be made by Ray Rigby. If clubs are playing away, umpires will be appointed by the appropriate person for the opposition club's league.

Clubs will be informed of the contact details for the umpires appointed to their matches.
