New South Welshman Ben Treloar makes List-A umpiring debut
Cricket Australia (CA) Supplementary Umpire Panel Member Ben Treloar makes his List-A umpiring debut in the match today between South Australia and Tasmania at Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide.
After drawing his playing career to a close in 2006, Treloar returned to the middle to take up umpiring. In season 2010/11 and 2012/13 he was appointed to the CA Under 17 Male National Championships before starting a three-year consecutive spell in the CA Under 19 Male National Championships from 2013/14 to 2015/16.
Treloar was then exposed to international underage cricket the following season, when he was appointed to officiate in the Under 19 International Series between Australia and Sri Lanka in Hobart.
In season 2017/18 Treloar took the next step in his umpiring career and was appointed to the six-member CA Supplementary Umpire Panel. Since then he has umpired 20 matches in the Rebel WBBL competition; ten Toyota Second XI matches and has had exposure to the KFC BBL as Third and Fourth Umpire. Treloar was also appointed Fourth Umpire to the Women’s Ashes Test Match between Australia and England at North Sydney Oval in 2017.
In Sydney’s Premier Cricket competition, Treloar has stood in a total of 217 matches including 134 First-Grade and eight lower grade Grand Finals.
Off-field, Treloar received a place in the Australian Sports Commission National Officiating Scholarship (NOS) program in 2017. The program was a key stepping stone for Treloar into High Performance Officiating. To complement his progression on the pathway, Treloar was later part of the inaugural Cricket Australia High Performance Officiating program.
Treloar’s contribution to umpiring in New South Wales has also been duly recognised, being named the winner of the prestigious George Borwick Memorial Award, the NSW Cricket Umpires & Scorers Association’s highest honour.
Treloar will stand alongside CA National Umpire Panel member Simon Fry with the match being overseen by CA Match Referee Bob Stratford.
