Two of Cayman cricket’s top umpires are at a high level umpiring convention in St Lucia this week.
Chabienauth Samaroo and Sydney Moore are representing the Cayman Islands at the West Indies Cricket Umpires Association 25th Biennial Convention in St. Lucia until Friday.
Matters being addressed include election to general council, laws and playing conditions, constitution and other matters relevant to the general running of the association and cricket within the region and worldwide.
Most importantly, Moore will be receiving his West Indies Cricket Umpires Association certificate for successfully passing his final examinations in 2009. This makes him a fully qualified umpire within the region and in the International Cricket Council fraternity.
Cayman Islands Cricket Association president Courtney Myles said: “Congratulations to Mr. Moore in his elevation in the officiating ranks. He has joined the growing list of competent and experienced Cayman Islands officials who are highly respected in the cricketing world. This is another milestone in our country cricketing development.”
Technical director Theo Cuffy said: “Congratulations Mr. Moore. I am extremely pleased to see another of our hard working officials moving up and being recognised. Cayman’s cricket association led by Courtney Young continues to provide excellent service to our cricket development.”
