|National Officiating Scholarship – Congratulations to Greg Davidson and Tony Wilds||updated March 7, 2014|
The National Officiating Scholarship, through the Australian Sports Commission, aims to assist the development of emerging high performance officials by enabling them to undertake professional development and identified training activities to improve their skills and to fast track them through a recognised pathway to officiate within the elite level of their chosen sport.
The individualised scholarships will provide support in a variety of areas such as high level practical officiating experience, accreditation advancement, sports psychology services, sports recovery support services and further development opportunities.
Each scholarship official works with a mentor who assists them for the duration of their scholarship. Mentoring is a key component of the program. The ASC conducts an induction workshop for scholarship officials and their mentors, and provides ongoing support and monitoring throughout the program.
Cricket Australia has nominated two umpires for the 2014 National Officiating Scholarship. We are delighted to advise that NSWCUSA members Greg Davidson and Tony Wilds were Cricket Australia’s nominees and proud to advise that they have both been selected.
Greg and Tony are being mentored by Simon Taufel and Graham Chudleigh respectively, two proud life members of NSWCUSA.
All four will attend a workshop on the Gold Coast in March as their first commitment of the program.
Scholarships are conducted over a calendar year.
|First Grade Limited Overs Competition Grand Final||updated March 7, 2014|
Greg Davidson & Gerard Abood
The First Grade Limited Overs Competition Grand Final (replay) will be held at University 1 on Sunday 9 March 2014.
The Association offers congratulations to Gerard Abood and Greg Davidson on their appointment to umpire this match.
The Grand Final will commence at 10am, being played under the rules of SCA Game 3, and the match will be live streamed and can be watched via the link below:
It should be a Grand Final of outstanding quality with Sydney University welcoming back Ryan Carters, Sean Abbott and Scott Henry into their line-up after the trio missed last week’s game because of the Bupa Sheffield Shield match in Adelaide.
Carters is currently one of the top four batsmen in this season’s Bupa Sheffield Shield with 760 runs at 63.33 to his name, including three centuries. Earlier this week he made scores of 64 and 84 in the drawn Shield match against South Australia.
Nathan Lyon has also been named in the Northern District squad with his availability to be confirmed after the off-spinner returns home from South Africa.
In the event that no result is reached in this match, Sydney University and Northern District will be declared joint Premiers.
Both teams are aiming to win just their second First Grade Limited Overs Premiership. Sydney University won their first title in 2010/11 while Northern District were joint Premiers with Eastern Suburbs in 2007/08.
The Association also acknowledges the scorers who will represent their respective clubs on Sunday – John Kilford (Sydney University) and Robyn Sanday (Northern District).
Entry is free to University 1 on Sunday.
