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.
