On behalf of CV and the VCAUSA, we wish to advise all Premier Cricket Umpires Panel members that our comrade Alan McCarthy has passed away unexpectedly today after a sudden illness.
Alan was the current president of the VCA Umpires & Scorers Association and an active committee member since 2013.
Alan was an experienced and popular member of the CV Umpires’ Panel, officiating in 203 Premier matches since joining the panel in 2008-09, umpiring in 203 Premier Panel matches, including 25 1st XI matches. Alan held 1st XI Umpire Cap #539 after debuting in a 1st XI match in the 2014-15 season.
Our sincere condolences are extended to Alan’s wife Sue, the McCarthy family and to all Alan’s friends and colleagues in the cricket fraternity.
