Our dear friend, and former MCUA member, the Reverend Roger Driver, has achieved a long term ambition since he began to umpire.
Roger has been asked to umpire for the Archbishop of Canterbury's X1 against the Vatican cricket team in Rome. Roger and the team flew to Rome of the 1st July.
Roger's selection came about following a chance meeting at a conference with someone who turned out to be the captain of the Archbishop's cricket team.
Whilst chatting, Roger explained that as well as being a vicar he was also a cricket umpire. Things moved on and he ended up having an invite to accompany the team to Rome.
Roger is currently Rector of the Benefice of St. Michael Without, Bath. He umpires in the West of England Premier League.
Congratulations to Roger
