If you’re interested in cricket umpiring, as a spectator, player, official, club or league, then this Cricket Yorkshire Podcast will be right up your street.
It is packed with stories and insight of life in the white coat from Jonathan Crabtree (above left), who officiates in the Yorkshire Cricket Southern Premier League and Yorkshire Premier League North.
Joining us is Nick Boyes who works for the Yorkshire Cricket Board as Club & Community Development Manager for West Yorkshire.
We chat about the challenges with umpire recruitment, a new ECB Young Umpires course designed specifically for teens coming soon and swap tales of playing and umpiring in club cricket.
It was a lot of fun to record and if you have 45 minutes in the car, plug in your headphones on a train or want a podcast to listen to at home, the time will fly by.
The Cricket Yorkshire Podcast is available on Spotify, Apple, Google and other platforms.
