Kim Norris Stands Down From Country Representative Umpires Panel
Date of Event : Mon Apr 10, 2017 1:03PM

Kim Norris was selected on the Country Umpire Representative Panel in season 1991-92, the year it was formed – being joined on that original panel by Kevin Burke, Harry Honeysett, Kevin Pye and Eric Rowsell. After 25 years of service Kim has decided to stand down to allow the panel to refresh and renew, a completely selfless act.


Kim will not be lost to the game, and will continue to umpire in Newcastle and will also be involved in umpiring country representative carnivals around the State, his experience will be of great benefit as an on field observer and off field coach. Kim has been the Zone Umpire Representative for Newcastle since the role came into being in season 2000-01. Kim will continue in that role and to work with developing a group of talented emerging umpires in the Newcastle District. Kim has enjoyed a tremendous career, containing many umpiring highlights –

  • New South Wales Country v India at Wagga Wagga in 1991-92, a match in which a young Sachin Tendulkar played.
  • Numerous Country Finals, far too many for even Kim to remember.
  • Seven first grade finals in the Newcastle District.
  • Two Australian Country Cricket Championships – Lismore in 2005 and Albury in 2010.
  • Two matches in the Women’s National Cricket League.
  • A State 2nd XI match.
  • State League Cup fixtures.
  • City v Country Place of Origin series.
Kim has made an extraordinary contribution to NSWCUSA, as an umpire and in the key area of umpire training and development. He was honoured with life membership in 2007 and we look forward to his continued involvement.
