under 19 final

New South Wales State Panel Umpire Troy Penman and Queensland State Panel Umpire David Taylor have been appointed to the Final of the CA Under 19 Male National Championships between ACT/NSW Country and Queensland at Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide.

Both umpires have officiated in the past two Under 19 Male National Championships Finals. Taylor partnered CA Supplementary Umpire Panel member Darren Close in 2016. In the 2017 Final, Penman also stood with Close. Both umpires have produced strong performances throughout the competition and their appointment to the Final is a significant achievement.

For New South Welshman Penman, today’s appointment is another milestone and marks a successful tournament. Penman has officiated in professional competitions the Rebel WBBL, WNCL and Toyota Futures League in recent seasons and has combined this with full Sydney Premier Cricket commitments. Today’s appointment is Penman’s second appearance in the Under 19 Male National Championships Final, following on from his 2016 Under 17’s Final appointment.

Taylor is originally from New South Wales and moved to Queensland in 2016 where he has established himself as one of the leading Premier Cricket Umpires in his adopted state. Taylor also officiates in CA’s professional competitions the Rebel WBBL, WNCL and Toyota Futures League. Today’s appointment is Taylor’s third appearance in the Under 19 Male National Championships Final.

The Final between ACT/NSW Country and Queensland is being live streamed on cricket.com.au here. The Final will be overseen by former Test Umpire Steve Davis who will fulfill the duties of Match Referee.
