Invercargill man Peter Pasco is one of six finalists in a nationwide search for New Zealand's favourite cricket umpire.

The competition invited nominations of amateur cricket umpires in a bid to celebrate and reward those unsung heroes who give up their own time to further club cricket in New Zealand.

The delighted 42-year-old salesman for Edward Gibbon Plumbing, who was nominated by his wife, Tracy, said he was humbled by the nomination, let alone being named a finalist.

"I am very thankful to be recognised for my contribution to Southland cricket. I am also very excited about the chance to win this competition and the opportunities that will come with it," Pasco said.

As a finalist, Pasco will receive two pairs of glasses from competition sponsor Specsavers, a Kookabura bat signed by New Zealand cricketers BJ Watling, Kane Williamson and Martin Guptill, and a double pass to an international cricket game in Wellington, including return flights and a night's accommodation.

The grand prizewinner will be named later this month. The prize is a one-on-one training session with a high-profile New Zealand umpire, $1000, two tickets, travel and accommodation to the New Zealand-India test at Eden Park, in Auckland, from February 6 to 10, and an experience with four New Zealand cricket representatives at the winner's local cricket club.
