Captains Report - Please return the form to Kevin Wilson on the Wednesday after the match (Thursday for Sunday fixtures) at the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
When completing the Captains Report please take into account the notes shown below: -
Captains should be objective when completing the Report. It is designed so that the overall performance of the umpire can be assessed and not just the decisions made. The information supplied helps with the development of umpires and to improve their performance. Where umpires gain low marks in any category then this information may be used to provide further guidance or training. At the end of the season the marks are used to ‘grade’ umpires locally, are supplied to the ECB to assist in the further development of umpires and to make regional and national appointments.
