Bolton Sixth Form College Visited by John Holder
John Holder, former Test Match and First Class umpire, attended Bolton Sixth Form College to present certificates to students that had successfully completed their Level 1 qualification in Umpiring.
John who has umpired 11 Test Matches, 19 ODIs and countless first class county matches, gave the boys an insight into his time as a top level umpire and how he started out. He explained how vital young umpires and scorers are to our game and that these newly qualified Level 1 umpires can go on to help local leagues and clubs and move up the officiating ladder.
