2018 Scorers courses open for booking

Gloucestershire Association of Cricket Officials (GACO) is very keen to raise the standards of scorers and the number of scorers across the county.

The development of scorers is a key priority within Gloucestershire’s workforce development plan and is also a key objective and requirement for leagues throughout the county. As a result the GCB is launching a recruitment initiative alongside the ECB advertising campaign ‘Stay in the game’ designed to encourage players and volunteers to move into scoring.
