The Leinster Cricket Umpires and Scorers Association have released a statement in relation to their ongoing dispute with Cricket Leinster.

The parties are due to have face-to-face talks with a governing body ahead of the resumption of the new season next month.

"The LCU&SA has been engaging with Cricket Leinster and we are due to have a face to face meeting with senior figures in CL in the next couple of days. We hope that this will bring about an amicable resolution to the current crisis.

"Kevin Gallagher, chairperson of the CL ‘sub-committee’ has been removed as Leinster representative from the IACUS Committee and replaced by Will Houston, a current LCU&SA Executive member.

"As lockdown restrictions are being lifted, we would hope to hold a general meeting for members sooner rather than later and are seeking a suitable venue that will allow for social distancing.

"We would repeat our advice not to register with the CL ‘sub-committee’ and not to give them your bank details.

"We would like to thank the many members who have expressed their support and encouragement for the LCU&SA and we will do our utmost to ensure that the umpires and scorers of Leinster cricket continue to be represented in a fair, democratic and transparent manner."
