Stoggard calls it a day

By TONY WHITE

LONG-SERVING Clarence River Cricket Association (CRCA) umpire Ron Stoggard has retired due to ill health.

The Tucabia-based umpire, who was also a goal umpire in the local AFL competition, officiated in CRCA matches for almost a decade.

At the CRCA Umpires monthly meeting this week, Stoggard was honoured with a special presentation and momento.

"Ron was a very dedicated official who never missed a Saturday game," umpires president Paul McErlean said. "He was also extremely helpful to new umpires and anyone who needed it.

"He will be sorely missed."

McErlean revealed player conduct was a hot topic of discussion at the meeting.

"We've been asked by the association to make sure players adhere to the players' code of conduct," McErlean said.

It is understood a letter from the association will be served this week to all CRCA clubs pointing out the player code re- quirements.
