ADDITIONS TO UMPIRES LISTS FOR 2011 DOMESTIC SEASON

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) today announced the appointments of Steve Gale and Steve O’Shaughnessy to the First Class Umpires List for 2011 following the retirements of Barry Dudleston and Vanburn Holder last season.

Steve O’Shaughnessy played First Class Cricket for Lancashire and Worcestershire between 1980 and 1989, and has been umpiring since 2007.

Speaking about his elevation to the First Class Umpires List, Steve O’Shaughnessy said: “I am thrilled to be given this promotion and am looking forward to having the chance to further my career as an ECB official.”

Steve Gale is from Shrewsbury and has spent three seasons on the Reserve List after representing Shropshire in Minor Counties cricket between 1975 and 1987.

ECB Umpires’ Manager, Chris Kelly said: “We are pleased to welcome both Steve Gale and Steve O’Shaughnessy onto the Full List for 2011. Their commitment and attitude on the Reserve List has been outstanding and their promotion is the result of some exceptional performances in LV = County Championship matches.”

In addition, three new umpires have been added to the First Class Reserve List for 2011; Alex Wharf , Billy Taylor and Russell Evans.

Wharf and Taylor retired from First Class Cricket at the end of the 2009 season and Evans was contracted by Nottinghamshire between 1985 and 1990.

All three have used recent seasons to demonstrate their umpiring ability and are now presented with further umpiring opportunities.

ECB Umpires’ Manager, Chris Kelly said: “We are pleased to welcome Billy, Alex and Russell onto the Reserve List for 2011 which maintains the number of umpires available at this level. There is now plenty of competition for places on the Reserve List and these three have shown that they are in an excellent position to take their officiating forward.”

So that is 3 former England internationals making their way as umpires.

Lloyd following in his father's footsteps along with Saggers who played 3 tests for England and Alex Wharf who is probably most famous for keeping Anderson out of the team in the 2004 Champions Trophy!

Given how Anderson bowled at the time that decision must have saved England a lot of runs.

Why is India's Anil Chaudhary umpiring in the County Championship (the Essex v Hants game)?
