Fancy being the next Dickie Bird?

AN introduction to umpiring course will be held at The Green, home of St Boswells CC, on March 1 at 7pm.

The course will be the second held in the Borders and will now become an annual occurrence in the Borders cricket calendar – as much a pre-season event as winter nets, painting and cleaning the clubhouse.

To register for the two-hour workshop which will be run by Eastern Region umpires’ guru Sandy Scotland, contact Neil Cameron at or on 07785 371936.
