Umpiring and scoring are crucial if cricket is to be played fairly and safely across the country, which is why there are a variety of courses and associations that can help if you would like to get involved.

The ECB Association of Cricket Officials (ACO) represents Scorers and Umpires and is responsible for the recruitment, training and development of all officials for and on behalf of the national governing body, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

Current courses that are available are as follows:-

Staffordshire ACO is the County arm of the ECB ACO and contact details for all of the officials within this association can be found by clicking on the download below. Their structure relies on the support of a core volunteer work-force, consisting of 300 regional and county officers who arrange and manage the training and development programmes locally. The association is always looking for more umpires and scorers and so if you are interested in getting invloved then please get in touch, you will be welcomed with open arms.
