Next year will see a major change to cricket which will have an impact on ECB Association of Cricket Officials members whether a scorer or an umpire with the introduction of the new Laws of Cricket.
Additionally, within Sussex next year sees a restructuring of league cricket with the four current leagues merging into one county league.
The Sussex Association of Cricket Official (SACO) is arranging, with the three local associations, a number of courses to familiarise scorers and umpires with interpreting the new laws.
It is vitally important that 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 would recommend multi-attendances to ensure a smooth introduction into our cricket matches next season.
