Umpire, 92, hangs up white coat
A 92-year-old man from Greater Manchester should not have been forced to retire as a cricket umpire if he can still do the job, former Test match umpire Dickie Bird has said.
Charlie Fenton from Hyde had to resign from the Cheshire and Derbyshire League because it could not insure him.
"I was disappointed to finish," he said.
Bird, 79, said: "I would have let him carry on until his century if he was fit enough."
