The following other websites may be useful for umpires, scorers, and those interested in becoming a cricket official in future:


The ECB Association of Cricket Officials (ACO) represents scorers and umpires for and on behalf of the national governing body, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).

ECB ACO is the membership organisation responsible for the recruitment, training and development of all cricket officials. 

ECB ACO has a separate board that works with the executive to run the association. They work at the national, regional and local county level to have a direct link with you as an individual member.

As well as providing a fun, rewarding way to engage with the sport, training as an official is a great way to support the health of the game. You don’t need any previous experience or qualifications – just a willingness to learn. Whatever level you aspire to, whatever pace you wish to learn at, the ECB ACO Education Programme has a pathway for you.

Middlesex CCC

Since the club’s official foundation in 1864, Middlesex County Cricket Club has for over a century a half been one of the most successful and well-respected first-class counties in the English domestic game.  

The club has played at the Home of Cricket, Lord’s Cricket Ground, in St John’s Wood, since 1877 and has a proud history of developing many of the game’s greatest known cricketers, including the likes of Denis Compton, Mike Gatting, John Emburey and Andrew Strauss to name but a few.


Middlesex County Cricket League

The Middlesex County Cricket League is the top level of competition for recreational club cricket in Middlesex, England, and since 1999 has included an ECB Premier League. The league comprises 3 divisions.

Four MCCL clubs have won the ECB National Club Cricket Championship: Teddington (1989 and 1991), Enfield (1988), Southgate (1977) and Hampstead (1969). Ealing have also won the ECB National Club Twenty20 in 2011 and 2015.


Middlesex Development League

The Middlesex Development League (MDL) aims to inspire young people to play the game competitively, and in the Spirit of Cricket.

The MDL was setup by Middlesex Cricket in 2012 to respond to the needs of clubs in relation to the ongoing development of our younger players. Namely: to bridge the gap between age group cricket and adult sides; to provide an additional platform for young players to express their abilities in a longer format of the game; and to integrate young players more effectively into an adult environment.


Ealing and District ACO

Formed in 1970 at Ealing CC, Ealing & District ACO is an independent association and have been running umpiring courses every year since. We are affiliated to MCB ACO and ECB ACO and run ECB ACO accredited courses on behalf of the MCB ACO. We welcome new members from amongst all the umpires and scorers in Middlesex. Members of the Association meet on the first Tuesday of each month at Ealing CC commencing at 8pm from April through to January to discuss all matters to do with Umpiring, Scoring and cricket in general as appropriate.
