come Saturday cricket starts again.
I am now in my 13th year of Junior cricket.
I am a firm believer that a boy inculcated with the values of the spirit of cricket will have a head start in life. Accepting the Umpires decision will help him when he starts work. Understanding how the team works will help him again when he is employed.
The encouragement of team mates and no abuse towards opponents again so.
I am not only umpiring , in Shires, but for some reason the local Umpires have put me in charge. It could be it is because their numbers have increased from around 2 to 8-10 depending on the weekend and the jobs of some of the locals.
All in all there is a lot of fun coming up.
Some prats put concrete where you put the stumps so over 2 dozen teenagers couldn't play today.
Thanks a lot!
