Congratulations to North East Premier League Umpire Jordan Montgomery-Else who recently stood in Emirates Arch Trophy Final at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Jordan who won the 2016 Best New Umpire of the Year award for the NEPL umpired with West of England Premier League umpire Barry Aitken in the final earlier this week.
Eton College went up against Zayed Academy of the UAE in the Final, with Eton taking the honours by 6 wickets. Roger Myall Director of SportA tours commented on the excellent performance Jordan had in the final and his top class umpiring throughout the Arch Trophy.
More great news for an North East Premier League umpire.
Well Done Jordan
Umpires Preview 2018
As I write my annual report, the rain continues to fall as it has solidly since early Friday morning and with the very wet Winter, this could cause some concern with the season due to start in 7 days time.
Special General Meeting
Due to Seaham Habour officially resigning out of the North East Premier League, a Special General Meeting will be held at 7.00pm on Wednesday 11 April at Ropery Lane.
