    My wife recently returned to club hockey with a ladies’ club in Ulster (Ireland), and as a former football referee I’ve been recruited to do a spot of umpiring. I am lucky that it is a fairly large club with two experienced umpires already in place to nudge me in the right direction.

    I have done just a few matches so far, plus the basic L1 introductory course. I know a bit about game management from football, but interpretation of the rules is an area where I have much to learn - so all tips welcome!
