Scorer and Umpire Courses

Scorer and Umpire Courses As you might be aware the MCC has introduced a new set of Laws which will be in effect for the coming season. At the same time the ECB Association of Cricket Officials (ECBACO) has introduced a new set of courses which are now focussed on umpiring skills and much less on the Laws. The MCC has introduced a new on-line resource which anyone is able to access. You will know that we have a continuing need for scorers and umpires and that the League is keen to encourage clubs to put people forward to become more capable and qualified. I hope that you will continue to support this initiative. Courses are now booked on-line via the ECBACO. For details of courses see below or visit HACO ( websites.
