MPCUA HISTORY

                                WELCOME TO THE HISTORY OF THE MPCUA.
The MPCUA have been involved with umpiring on the Mornington Peninsula for over 40 years.

Our umpire numbers have grown considerably these past years and with this
growth, in 2005 we formed the Mornington Peninsula Cricket Umpires Association.

On this page you will find the history of  a range of awards that have been presented over the years to our umpires,
which includes the Bill Foley Medal - (awarded to the best performed umpire in the MPCA),
and the list of Umpires that have been awarded medals in each of the First XI Grand Finals over the past years.

Also on our history page the MPCUA held their Inaugural Presentation Dinner and awards night,
which was held on 11/03/2014. This will now become an annual function at end of each season,
 to recognize some fine acheivements by our umpires through out each season.
Here you will also find the list of our Presentation Award winners.
Past MPCUA Executive Committee members also listed.

Finally and most importantly we acknowledge our well deserved Life Members of the MPCUA.
On this page, you will also see the list of these members that have achieved this wonderful award.
