ECB Association of Cricket Officials

Why become a scorer? If you love the game of cricket and want the chance to play an active part in the game, then a scorer's role could be perfect for you.

With the numerous laws and different ways of scoring it is by no means easy, but if you're up for the challenge the ECB Association of Cricket Officials can certainly help you onto the road to success.

Firstly, joining the ECB ACO as a scorer member is a must. Once you have done that, you will need a CRB to be an active scorer. Order one from if you do not already have a cricket-related one.

Learning to score has never been easier, more accessible or more enjoyable. Gone are the days of ‘parrot’ style teaching as the ECB ACO and experienced cricket scorers have put together interactive courses which cater from the total beginner through to the experienced scorer looking to do professional cricket. Whatever level scorer you are, there will be a course for you.

Typically courses, except the correspondence course, are run between October and April. Click here to attend a training course.

We encourage all scorers to join ECB ACO. This can be done as part of attending a training course or independently by completing an application and direct debit form (1.2 MB).

For scorers who wish to develop their scoring, there is a structured pathway (14 KB) to follow with associated training.
