Season greetings to one and all.

By President Cecil Fletcher

 

Colleagues All

 

 Our 26th Convention has come and gone. From reports it is justifiable to say it was a success.  All that we had achieved was the consequence of the hard work put in by our constituents.

 

Our continued success will depend on how we proceed hereafter and I challenge us to do the best we can and to support whatever initiatives we put in place to enhance our image and existence.

 

It is an understatement to say that we need money to boltster the finances of the association as it is a given that it is so. Your help will be needed to ensure that whatever is to be channeled to the coffers of WICU be done as in doing just that we will grow financially.

 

2013-2015 should be an interesting period as the mandate of the convention is geared towards positive undertakings.

 

I beg of you to respond to emails promptly at all times particularly when asked for an input in given situations.

 

I beg of you to get your constituents to understand the role of WICUA and to submit to its dictates.

 

I beg of you to carry out the functions that the office you hold requires of you with professionalism, commitment and dedication.

 

The secretariat under the guidance of Vivian Johnson did a fantastic job and has been doing so ever since he took up the mantle of service. With his assistant and treasurer Norman Malcolm they both are key players in the overall scheme of things.

 

I welcome to the fold with sincerity Goland Greaves and our promoted colleague Billy Doctrove.

 

We have a great team and I look forward to great things for WICUA

 

Best wishes to all and may the good Lord Bless and Keep us.

 

Regards,

 

Cecil Fletcher

President

About WICUA

 

As a people we are indeed living in a changing world. Some persons are afraid of changes and for diverse reasons. From the outset changes are affected for better and not for worse, however sometimes the dreams and the aspirations are not achieved, this brings to fore such words as failure, disappointment and grief.  Conversely more often than not you hear of joy, success, progress and just reward.

As umpires there has been significant changes in the umpiring landscape, the numbers required for some category of matches have been severely tailored to the point that some umpires felt not motivated, whilst some have experienced financial and status driven reward and are extremely happy.

The truth has always been that changes are intended for good. Umpires need to look at the bright side and remain focused. At all stages not every umpire would have made it to the Elite or ICC Panel or the WICB Regional Panel. This should not in any way be a hindrance, instead an umpire should work hard to reach the top with determination.

Cricket umpiring should not be seen as offering a service for free, it is a business and it has pay days.  This therefore should provide the drive, the impetus thus acting as a stimulus for one’s motivation. Notwithstanding however WICUA has a duty to be, if not ahead of the game, at least should be close to it. WICUA ought to provide the leadership necessary to keep hopes and aspirations alive.  There are ways that WICUA can forge, which may assist in enhancing the quality of umpiring life.  One such way is to organize and work with territories in trying to establish an Umpires Exchange Programme within WICUA.  This is actively under consideration for the future.

Please get in touch to offer comments and join our mailing list.
