What do we do?

We train, appoint, support and develop umpires and scorers in the county.  We run regular courses (mostly off-season), we hold social events and look after the interests of our 200ish members.


We have an active group of scorers within Derbyshire, from those who score for their club to those who score for Derbyshire CCC, County Age Groups and beyond. Our reputation within the ECB ACO is that of a county who will provide scorers for many different formats both within our county borders and beyond.  we have had scorers score for ECB School games, Age group festivals, England Women and more.

You can get more involved at your local club, they are always looking for scorers at all levels. The ECB ACO has a clear pathway for scorers that takes scorers from youth cricket to national matches.  It allows scorers to develop at their own pace and to their desired level.
