Umpires and scorers need to gen up on new laws

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.

West Sussex ACO course dates: Stage 1, Sunday, January 21, Horsham CC starting at 9.30am; Sunday, January 28, Arundel Castle CC starting at 9.30am; Stage 2, Sunday, February 18, Horsham CC starting at 9.30am; Sunday, March 4, Arundel Castle CC starting at 9.30am.
