  • Recruitment and retention of umpires at all levels
  • Enjoyment of umpires 
  • Quality of the playing experience
  • Appreciation of players from within the club of umpires

It is also often said that gaining experience as an umpire will actually improve your playing performance as you will understand the rules!

Sponsorship We are very fortunate to benefit from the generous support of Higgins Group Plc. Higgins Group Plc is one of the largest family-owned construction companies in South East England. It was formed as the parent company of the Higgins Group of Companies in 1989. The Higgins Group moved to their prestigious new offices at One, Langston Road in May 2005. The development and success of the club would not have been possible without the long term and continuing commitment of the company to our club as its principal sponsor.
