[www.inewsguyana.com] – West Indies Cricket Board President, Dave Cameron has promised more training for local and regional umpires while commending them for the ‘utterly thankless job’ they do.
Cameron was speaking at the annual awards dinner and function of the Jamaica Cricket Umpires Association at the Rex Nettleford Hall Multi-Purpose Room at the University of the West Indies Mona.
Cameron bemoaned the fact that only the mistakes made but umpires get highlighted in the media, while the occasions where the decisions made are ‘top drawer’ are frequently overlooked.
Clearly championing the cause of the umpires, Cameron called for more respect to be given to the body
He indicated that the board of directors unanimously approved the training programme for umpires and referees at their last meeting which is a clear signal of the ‘high esteem’ in which they were being held.
