Sussex umpires and scorers urged to gen up on new laws
Across the country, members of the ECB Association of Cricket Officials '“ whether a scorer or an umpire '“ are faced with the introduction of the new laws of cricket.
Additionally, within Sussex, 2018 sees a restructuring of league cricket with the four current leagues merging into one covering the whole county.
The Sussex Association of Cricket Officials (SACO) is arranging, with the three local associations, a number of courses to familiarise scorers and umpires with the new laws.
It is vitally important all scorers and umpires, at whatever level they officiate and whether a member of ECB ACO or not, attend at least one of the courses. SACO recommend multi-attendance to ensure a smooth introduction into matches.
