From the very early stages of the formation of the ECB Association of Cricket Umpires (ACO) there has been a commitment from county boards to establish a pathway for officials.
This is firstly so skills can be recognised and secondly for officials to understand where they are and what are the next steps that need to be taken to develop to higher level matches.
It is of course not the desire of all umpires to crave the heights of officiating beyond their local area but nevertheless it is important that there are choices for everyone and a knowledge fo where we all are and its acceptance it is a comfortable place to be.
