UMPIRE POLO TOPS
Finding that brightly coloured umpire top can be a challenge for many so East District have sourced 3 such tops that are now available to purchase via Aitken & Niven. East District have ensured that costs to the Clubs and Umpires are kept to a minimum by covering the cost of the base consignment stock. Ongoing management of stock will be the responsibility of Aitken & Niven and they will be processing all the orders directly.
Free Delivery to store is available (They have stores in Edinburgh, Perth and Aberdeen) or you can pay for delivery to your home or other specified address.
It would be fabulous if all our East District Umpires were all able to have these tops available, it will really benefit the players and umpires if they are more visible and readily identifiable on the pitch.
This is all covered in the New LEVEL 1 Umpire Course that prepares you for the Level 1 qualification.
Clubs are encouraged to buy these for their umpires by visiting the Aitken & Niven Website, umpires are also able to purchase tops directly.
