Umpire Courses

Hi All,

Please see the below email from Alan Harrison about upcoming Umpire Courses and distribute around your club.

“Umpiring is a great way to support the health of the game
and guarantee the best seat in the house for all cricket lovers.”
Have you ever considered getting involved in the game, through umpiring.  We need umpires for all formats of the game, from junior games to women’s softball to weekend Hardball games?  Cricket at all levels depends on the enthusiasm and dedication of its officials.
As an aspiring cricketing umpire, we’re sure you don’t mind making tough decisions. But we’re sure you’d rather keep them to the field. That’s why we’ve put together a flexible learning pathway you can work through at your own pace, as and when it suits you.
Introductory Course (2-4 hours online)
This short standalone course will give any cricket enthusiast curious about becoming an umpire a taste for what the role entails, and outline what lies ahead if you’d like to pursue your interest.
There is no charge for this online course
It's Your Call – Umpire Education Stage One
This is designed to give you an overview of the basic Laws of the game and how to apply them and introduce the principles of field craft and match management. It will give you the tools to enable you to umpire matches at the basic recreational level where there are no independent umpires appointed.
Where: Cuckney Cricket Club
When: Sunday 11th, 18th & 25th November 2018
Times: 9:30 - 12:00pm

Cricket at Chilwell Barracks

An update....

Earlier this year members of our Committee met with senior personnel from Chilwell Barracks for exploratory discussions around Attenborough CC playing 3rd & 4th team cricket on the Barracks sports pitches and to have use of their existing sports pavilion.

I am pleased to report that following these meetings we have agreement to play cricket there from next season onwards.

The project required our Grounds team to initially install the cricket square such that it is fit for use for the 2019 season. This has now happened and we await the warm, damp autumn weather to do its job germinating the seed and in getting the square established.

We will also have use of the sports pavilion near to the cricket pitch, which has good changing facilities, toilets, hot showers and an area for delivering teas.
The plan for the 2019 season is for the 4th team to have first use of these facilities, with the 3rd team continuing to play at Nottingham University for one more season.

By the 2020 season the cricket facilities at the Barracks will be used by both the 3rd & 4th teams for their home matches.

The planned MOD sell off/developments at the Barracks in the coming years should not impact on these plans as we understand that the green space/sports pitches are to be 'ring fenced' for future community use.

The is another exciting development for Attenborough CC. An affordable, sustainable, quality, local cricket pitch and pavilion that will be enjoyed by club members, friends and families for years to come.

Planning for up coming seasons continues even when we're not playing cricket!

A further update will be provided at our AGM on Friday 23rd November at our pavilion.

Tesco Tokens!

Just to say a big 'thank you' to everyone who has supported the cricket club in shopping at Tesco's in recent weeks and put the 'blue tokens' in our section of the 'perspex collector' on leaving the shop.

The competition ends on 31st October, so we just need one last big effort to get over the line as winners! It is currently extremely close with the two other organisations we are competing against. We will get a significant amount of money if we are successful, so your help is appreciated in supporting your cricket club. Ask your friends and family to help too!
