GACUS chairman Jeff Chandra said: “Although the work they do is sometimes not appreciated by spectators, every umpire knows that scorers are a vital part of the match officials team; working together as a team of four to ensure that every match runs smoothly. Without experienced scorers umpires can have a very tiring day, correcting the scores where necessary.
“Most clubs realise the value of having an officially trained scorer and they appreciate the considerable skills that they bring to the club and the smooth running of match days. This is our opportunity to reward the outstanding scorers who made a real impact in the 2015 season.”
For anyone interested in becoming a scorer, training courses are run every year across Gloucestershire. Details can be found at www.glosumps.org.uk .
