Peter John Hartley (born 18 April 1960)[1] is an English first-class cricketer and umpire.

Playing career

Born 18 April 1960, in Keighley West Riding of Yorkshire, Hartley made his debut for Warwickshire in 1982. A right-arm medium fast bowler, he moved to Yorkshire in 1985, and stayed there until 1997,[1] when he relocated to Hampshire. When he retired at the end of the 2000 season, Hartley was Hampshire's opening bowler.

He made his highest first-class score for Yorkshire in a Roses match in 1988, making 127 not out out of a total of 224, while batting at no. 8 and coming to the wicket with his team at 37 for 6.[2] Another highlight of his playing career was playing in the final when Yorkshire won the 1987 Benson & Hedges Cup, a rare triumph for the county in these years.[3]

Hartley represented the England team in a Masters tournament in Sharjah in 1996.[4]

Umpiring career

After retiring as a player, Hartley became an umpire, making his first-class umpiring debut in 2003. Between 2006 and 2009 he officiated in international cricket, taking charge of six one day international matches and three Twenty20 international matches.[5][6][7] He continues to stand in List A and first-class cricket matches.

As of 2021, he remains a member of the England and Wales Cricket Board's umpire list.[8]
