Stepping into the umpiring scene was a logical decision for Simon, as his love and passion for the game burns bright.
Professionally Simon works in the health & fitness space which in addition to his long history in cricket, gives him the groundwork to become the best umpire he can be. In Simon’s personal and professional life, he continually strives to be the best in anything he does and looks forward to the challenges umpiring has in store for him.
