PROMOTION SUCCESS FOR WELSH UMPIRES
We would like to pass on our Congratulations to the following umpires who have been promoted to the FIH Promising Umpires List
Cathy Wright (Outdoor)
Jamie Hooper (Indoor)
Kevin Roberts (Indoor)
Abby McArthur (Indoor)
Following these promotions, we managed to speak to John Taylor, National Appointments Manager for the WHUA.
WHUA are really pleased to see four of our umpires getting this promotion. They put in lots of hard work preparing for tournaments and it is nice to see that all this hard work and preparation pays off. We are really proud of their achievements and hope that these promotions will pave they way for them all to get bigger and better tournaments. We wish them well for whatever the future holds for them. Hopefully news like this will show to the hockey family that there is a an alternative pathway, other than playing, where people can achieve international recognition. If there are any youngsters out there who would take their first steps on this pathway the they should get in touch with us to start making this journey happen.
We would like to wish them all continued success in their umpiring journey. To find out how you can develop your umpiring, check out the WHUA website: http://www.whua.org.uk/qualifications.html
