I Joined the club in November 1975, late in the evening after umpiring a Sussex Cup game v Chichester. I subsequently played for 2nds and 3rds in between umping for Southern Counties, Sussex and EG. I became Ground Manager for 3 years and represented club on county and umpiring committees. With a small team, I put together Centenary booklet in 1997 and the associated celebration dinner. I have Umpired at all levels, for EG, both men and women. I've now retired from blowing after 39 years at EG, and now just support.
