Cricket Australia (CA) have announced that New South Wales Umpire Ben Treloar has been elevated from the CA Supplementary Umpire Panel (SUP) to the National Umpire Panel (NUP) for season 2022/23.

Treloar commenced his umpiring career in the early 2000’s balancing his own playing career for the Manly District and Auburn Cricket Clubs whilst officiating in lower grade Shires matches in Sydney. Treloar was soon to stand in Premier First-Grade matches before joining the New South Wales State Umpire Panel (STUP). Treloar was appointed to the CA Under 17 Male National Championships in 2010/11 and 2012/13 before piecing together a three-year consecutive spell in the Under 19 Male National Championships from 2013/14 to 2015/16. During this time, Treloar took a significant step in his development as an umpire when he partook and completed the Australian Sports Commission National Officiating Scholarship program in 2017.

Treloar was elevated to CA’s Development Umpire Panel (now SUP) prior to the 2017/18 season. During that season, Treloar officiated as Fourth Umpire in the Women’s Ashes Series which included the Day Night Test match played at North Sydney Oval. During that same season, Treloar officiated in WBBL, WNCL and Toyota Second XI matches, all whilst fulfilling his NSW Premier Cricket commitments. Treloar made his on-field List-A debut in October 2019 when South Australia played Tasmania in their Marsh One Day Cup match at Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide. Treloar has since added a further three on-field appearances in List-A cricket. The following season, Treloar broke through for his First-Class debut when South Australia played New South Wales in their Marsh Sheffield Shield match at the Adelaide Oval, and has a further two appearances to his name since. And last season, Treloar stood in the first of his seven KFC BBL matches when the Adelaide Strikers played the Melbourne Renegades again at the Adelaide Oval.

Among Treloar’s other significant on-field appointments, Treloar stood in the WNCL Finals of 2019/20 and 2021/22, and was also on-field for the WBBL Final in 2019/20. Off the field, Treloar is an active member of the New South Wales Cricket Umpires and Scorers Association where he currently sits on the board. Treloar is four-time a winner of the prestigious George Borwick Memorial Award, the Association’s highest honour. And Treloar plays a pivotal role to the education of all umpires in New South Wales in his role as Education Officer with Cricket New South Wales.
