KINGSTON---Now that the Caribbean s top
female umpire, Jacqueline Williams, has
officiated at the West Indies Cricket Board
(WICB) Under-19 level, the next goal,
according to the Jamaican, is to officiate
at the regional first-class level.
The former Jamaica female cricketer, who
was born in Westmoreland, umpired in five
matches during the recent WICB Under-19
tournament, a first for a female umpire in
This was an improvement on a similar
experience at the WICB Under-15 tourna-
ment last year.
"The experiences were good, and taught
me a lot, and for it I m a much-improved
umpire," said the 39-year-old.
"The next hope for me is to be selected
to officiate at the regional first-class in the
Williams, who is the only female umpire
on the WICB s panel of umpires, albeit on
the second-tier B panel, would be the first
female umpire to achieve the feat if she does
get to the first-class level.
This would put the St Andrew Technical
alumni within her lifetime dream of being
an international umpire.
"If I were to make it to the first-class
level, that would be my next goal, as it is
from there that umpires are adjudged before
being given international status.
"That s the route I would like to take, and
with God s blessing, and further opportu-
nities, I am optimistic."
Williams, who began umpiring in 2007
at the age of 31, also outlined why she
believes she can make it to the highest level.
"I have rubbed shoulders with the best
umpires in the country, and think I have
stood up well," the Portmore resident pointed
"I also believe I have garnered the respect
of players, which for me is one of the most
important things in umpiring."
