Umpires

Norfolk Association Of Cricket Officials

The Association was founded in 1967 when the Norwich and Kings Lynn Branches amalgamated. It is affiliated to the ECB Association of Cricket Officials (ECB ACO), and the Norfolk Cricket Board.

The objects of the Association are to foster interest in, and improve the standard of umpiring and scoring, to further the interests of cricket by instruction and examination and to maintain and promote friendly relations with all cricket organisations especially within Norfolk and East Anglia.

It operates in close co-operation with the Norfolk Cricket Alliance to provide a panel of umpires to officiate in that league, as well as catering for the umpiring requirements of the two Norfolk County Senior Cup Competitions, namely the Carter Cup & NACO competitions. It also provides umpires to the Minor Counties Cricket Association, ECB East Anglian Premier League and Norfolk Junior Age-Group Fixtures.

Any umpire in Norfolk wishing to join the ECB ACO can pay a one off annual fee of £15. it is strongly recommended that anyone officiating cricket in Norfolk should be a member of the association. Please email Secretary David Coe (below) for more information and to sign-up.
