All you need to know about Cricket Umpire & Scorer
TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT
A Message from our President
Umpiring a Cricket Match can be a rewarding experience, it is after all the best view on the field, you have the opportunity to observe the best players competing at close quarters, and for a scorer, there is no greater satisfaction than completing a neat Score Sheet of a traditional score book and providing the player stats.
Many people believe that Umpiring a game is a complex role that only the few take on. Whilst a quick look at a cricket score book can be like deciphering the Enigma code. However, the fundamentals of either Umpiring or Scoring are straight forward so long as the basics are followed.
Through this Association, you can join the ‘Umpires Panel’ and will receive match expenses for each game you are appointed to, and many clubs will also directly cover their Scorers expenses.
This website pulls together all the information necessary to help you understand more about the art of Umpiring and Scoring.
There are links to the Laws , Animations, e-Learning Modules, Online Training Tools and Video clips, as well as explanations of training courses and links to help you book the course to best suit you.
By joining this Association, you will meet friendly people, all happy to help you progress on your own journey. You will also have access to the wider Association of Cricket Officials (ECB ACO)
