The ARt of scoring
There are many ways to score a cricket match and learning how to create the art contained within a traditional cricket score book is simpler than you may think.
From ‘Online‘ and ‘Club Scorer‘, to dedicated courses on Electronic Scoring, by becoming a member of, and with the support of this Association, you can build your skills over time with initial training completed in as little as 1 day.
Many clubs do not have a dedicated scorer for any of their teams and scorers are in demand, speak to them, training costs really are minimal, but you may find your club will refund such costs and also contribute to your travel expenses throughout a season.
The Scorers Pathway will guide you to the training required for the level you wish to attain. The training is friendly and supportive, a ‘Club Scorer‘ course can be completed in 1 day and should you wish to improve your skills thereafter, membership of the Scarborough Umpires & Scorers Association and the Association of Cricket Officials (ECB ACO) provides a support network to guide you on the road to excellence.
