The Working Party is as follows

The Annual April Seminar for all Umpires was held at Headingley on 13th April 2003. It is hoped to repeat this event on an annual basis.
The programme was as follows
Practical session umpiring errors
Managing Players management techniques
Guest Speakers Nigel Plews and John Reid
The Working Party has also drawn up a list of 16 Umpires from senior League nominations which will provide a panel for representative matches from Under14s / 15s upwards in 2003.
These umpires (who have to be under 60) will be assessed by managers and Assessors and the aim is that the best will be promoted to more senior games and eventually to County 2nd Xl level.
A Programme is being arranged.
An Introductory guide to scoring is to be published
