Request for Umpires

This is a continued request for volunteers to umpire.

If Holcombe HC is going to continue to have umpires for all our matches, we need to double our current playing umpire pool. We have struggled for home games in recent weeks in both the men's and ladies' sections.

For example, we have four female umpires in the club - two playing, and two non-playing. This is less than one per team, and really needs to be 12-15 to make sure we have options to cover the ladies games effectively and not overly reliant on such a restricted number of individuals.

There is a course at Lee Valley in November - click here for information. Please consider going on this if at all possible. Please share this with those not on Facebook, looking regularly at the website, juniors, parents, former players and anyone else that could be tempted to pick up a whistle.

Many thanks Adrian Hull (Umpire Co-ordinator and Development)
