Well done to everyone who has already been out umpiring this season. Umpiring is an essential part of the day-to-day running of the club, so it's really important we all play our part to help out with!

Umpires & Team Management (Coach/Captain/Manager) should check in with each other at least one week in advance. However, the sooner you do this the better!
If you can't umpire it's your responsibility to swap with someone or pay for a replacement - replacement umpires can be sought on'Need a Whistler' on Facebook. Just be sure to communicate with the team you're umpiring for!
Teams Management should liaise with their umpire to provide them with transport to and from the match.
Umpires will need a whistle, a stopwatch and a brightly coloured top to ensure they stand out from players.
Where possible try to avoid wearing/showing Muckross kit - the more neutral you can appear the better!
The Club expects players and team management to be respectful towards umpires at all times - particularly our own! Umpires are asked to inform email@example.com if they experience any unsporting behaviour.
