Would you like some scorer training but are unable to attend an ECB ACO classroom course in the winter? Maybe you just want to refresh or improve your existing scoring skills. Then why not try the ECB ACO Club Scorer online course? This course can be taken at your own pace and at any time of the day or night.

To register for the course, visit the Club Scorer Online page on the ECB website. You don’t need to be an ECB ACO member to complete the course and it is completely free of charge. You will receive an ECB ACO certificate on completion of the course.

This is an ideal course for complete beginners or as a refresher for anyone returning to scoring. It covers the very basics of scoring and is ideal for parents who want to get more involved or anyone who wants to get started in scoring. The aim of this course is to identify and practice the basic skills with which to record a cricket match. It doesn’t cover everything, but it will give you the tools to get started, including: • Scoring record (scoresheet) • Umpire’s signals • Scoring symbols • Recording wickets and extras • Scoresheet balancing. All scoresheets, handouts and refreshments will be provided but bring some pens/pencils to do some scoring with.

 This course costs £5 payable on the day either in cash or by cheque made payable to “Gloucestershire Association of Cricket Officials”. For GCCL  division one and two clubs, you may send one scorer free of charge (payment will be claimed direct from GCCL).
