Past and present Presidents of the BCUA.The Barbados Cricket Umpire Association was formed in 1953 out of a desire to bring some formal structure to what was then considered to be a labour of love for the sport by those who previously played the game or simply had a love for the game.

 

The first President of the newly formed BCUA was H. Cortez Jordan, and the first secretary was Charles Collymore.

 

From those early days the BCUA has grown from strength to strength and has provided the world stage with some outstanding umpires who officiated at the International level.

Some of the past Presidents have been Lloyd Barker, Stanton Parris, Andrew Corbin, Mervyn Jones and Vincent Bullen. Some of these gentlemen still serve on the Executive of the BCUA.
