The ECB Association of Cricket Officials (ACO) represents scorers and umpires for and on behalf of the national governing body, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
ECB ACO is the membership organisation responsible for the recruitment, training and development of all cricket officials.
We have a separate board that works with the executive to run the association. We work at national, regional and local county level to have a direct link with you as an individual member.
As well as providing a fun, rewarding way to engage with the sport, training as an official is a great way to support the health of the game. You don’t need any previous experience or qualifications – just a willingness to learn. Whatever level you aspire to, whatever pace you wish to learn at, our Education Programme has a pathway for you.
