Umpire

ECB 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).

Our Aim is to develop confident, competent umpires and scorers to manage and guide cricket matches at every level from ‘Playground to Test Arena'.

Our Commitment is to provide a 'pathway' of training and development to enable everyone, including you, to progress at your own pace, to whatever level you aspire, be it at school, club, County or International level.

Our Structure relies on the support of our core volunteer work-force, consisting of 300 regional and county officers who arrange and manage our training and development programmes locally. ECB ACO is established as an independent association with the wholehearted support of the ECB.
