Martin Saggers has been added to the ECB First Class Full List of Umpires for 2012, following the retirement of John Steele at the end of the 2011 season.

ECB Umpires’ Manager, Chris Kelly, said: “We would like to congratulate Martin on his promotion to the Full List which has been the result of some outstanding performances in matches over the last couple of seasons. His commitment and attitude on the Reserve List has been exemplary and his promotion is thoroughly deserved.”
