Kim Cotton, Lawyer – back from the Commonwealth Games 2022


Kim Cotton with a fellow Technical Official.

We welcome Kim Cotton back to the office from Birmingham, UK after serving as a Technical Official (umpire) for Women’s T20 Cricket at the Commonwealth Games.  Kim has been a cricket umpire for quite some time and has had the honour of umpiring many games, internationally as well as at home here in NZ.  Having already umpired two Women’s Cricket World Cup Finals Kim is a very experienced umpire but being selected to attend the Commonwealth Games was something new.  She had the pleasure of umpiring 8 games, including the exciting Gold Medal Match between Australia and India. 

Welcome home Kim, we are so proud of you!
