The SPA now has its own formal umpires training and qualification structure and invited International Umpire Mike Pegg to deliver and umpire’s course and set an exam on the weekend of 8 and 9 July at Inverleith.
Following the course and examination, the following qualifications have been awarded:
- Mags Montgomery – SPA Senior Umpire
- Colin Montgomery – SPA Umpire
- Derek Adam – SPA Umpire
- Colin Stewart – SPA Umpire
Congratulations to all of the successful candidates and commiserations to those who didn’t quite make it this time. The qualified umpires will now form the SPA Umpires Committee which will oversee the development and improvement of umpiring in Scotland.
