NATIONAL YOUNG UMPIRE PROMISING LIST (NYUPL)
Following his performance at the National Youth Festival, we are delighted to announce that Sam Stickland has been selected to be one of the 21 young English umpires recognised as having the talent and the potential to progress to high level performance.
Young umpires on the National Young Umpire Promising List will be prioritised for all national junior programme and international junior programme appointments for the coming 12 months plus.
In partnership with England Hockey and the Regional Young Umpire Action Group, Sam will be managed, coached and assessed on an ongoing basis and as his Assessment Team report on his progress, he will be allocated to suitable tournaments and games to help him develop further.
This is the first ever West appointment to the NYUPL and we send our congratulations to Sam.
