Congratulations to Tony Boshier awarded the Hugh Stratford Trophy for Best Developing Umpire in Central Districts at the CD Umpires AGM!
Hugh Stratford was a Life member and patron of CDCUSA from 1990s through to his death about 2011. He was a Scotsman and a former policeman. A lot of current more experienced umpires first met him as teenagers in Masterton when he ran a player umpires courses.
When Hugh retired to Palmerston North and became Patron he felt that there should be a trophy for promising up and coming umpires within CD. The criteria covered promise as an umpire and also what they put into their respective associations so the trophy was born in his name. He was a very tall, and upright man with a rye sence of humour and a real gentleman.
