Young Umpires Train For The McCloy & Pearson Qualifiers

These are a few of the Year 11 girls who have volunteered to help Ulster Hockey run the McCloy and Pearson qualifiers for primary schools, being held at Ballymena Academy on 15th March.  

Fourteen pupils have signed up and they took part in a 2 hour training workshop today, led by Ulster Hockey’s Andrew Brown, to equip them with the skills needed to umpire at the tournament.  The girls have been getting in some extra practice by umpiring Year 8 matches over the last few weeks so they should be well trained up for the big day.
