Synopsis Natalie Melmore's assured presence as presenter and narrator sets the scene for a highly commendable and watchable DVD that complements the EBUA's excellent Home Study Manual. All aspects of umpiring (to first grade level) and marking are demonstrated and explained very professionally by Allan Thornhill and his colleagues to provide a first-rate, practical DVD.

The contents reflect the relevant ones listed in the Home Study Manual:

  • Introduction
  • Umpiring
  • Marking
  • Equipment
  • Measuring

In addition to complementing the manual the DVD provides a valuable resource for umpires of all grades as well as those bowlers involved or interested in umpiring, marking and measuring. Clubs too should seriously consider purchasing a copy on behalf of their members to allow them to borrow and enjoy watching it at their leisure.
