Plea for Players – Sorry for Short Notice

As you may or may not be aware, within the Yorkshire counties and the region  as a whole, we are very short of B award umpires to service both the county and regional leagues.

A ‘B Award’ course is running on Sunday 25 May at Bradford college and players are needed from about 12:30ish until 2:30.

We appreciate this is a bank holiday weekend and the start of half term, but if you think you could assist please could you email enquiries@shipleynetball.org.uk ASAP. There is one court and would be looking for about 21 players. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks in anticipation
