Vale Ray Isherwood

Cricket Victoria regrets to advise of the passing of former Test umpire, Ray Isherwood, who passed away yesterday in Adelaide at the age of 76.

Ray had a distinguished umpiring career, officiating in 227 District matches between 1962-63 and 1986-87.

He umpired six VCA Finals.

Ray also officiated 27 first class matches, 10 List A matches, 21 ODIs and three Tests, featuring the West Indies (at Sydney 1984-85), New Zealand (at Perth 1985-86) and India (at the MCG 1985-86).

Ray was inducted into the CV 200 Club in 1995 and was a regular attendee at 200 Club functions in recent years.

Ray was also a former President and Life Member of the VCA Umpires' & Scorers' Association.

All Cricket Victoria Directors, member clubs and staff extend deepest condolences to the Isherwood family.
