Courses for Scorers

This section contains detailed information about the courses for cricket scorers we offer, necessary prerequisites to apply (if any) and booking information when the courses are available.

Introductory Course

This one-day Sunday course will provide you with the basic skills and knowledge to record a cricket match. The course is £5 per person which covers all course material and refreshments and is five hours long.

ECB Club Scorer

Club Scorer is the course for anyone wanting to score on a regular basis and is the only one to comprehensively teach you how to score. This course is suitable for complete beginners and existing scorers who want to improve their skills. On completion of the course you’ll receive an ECB ACO club scorer certificate.

Linear Scoring

This module teaches existing scorers how to complete a linear scoresheet, which is an alternative layout of paper scoresheet to the conventional box style scoring record. The course contains a large practical element of scoring a recorded match, after spending time getting familiar with the new layout of scoresheet. Linear scoresheets make a good back-up system when scoring electronically.

Electronic Scoring

This one-day workshop will take you through scoring using Play Cricket Scorer Pro (PCS) Pro from setting up a match to printing out a scorecard or a player’s wagon wheel and will give you some handy hints on how to make amendments as quickly as possible, while play continues.

This course is suitable for candidates who have attended the Club Scorer course and wish to become qualified for the electronic system of scoring.
