Shock Horror ! A MAN is reported to have applied to take the test for the panel of Umpires !
The article reads :
The Male Applicant. A would-be applicant for the Panel of Umpires – a man – has written complaining that he was refused permission to take the test.
This is an incorrect statement. No County Secretary has received such an application. That being so, the Council, has, as yet, not considered the question.
