Umpires & Umpiring

Umpires are an essential part of every cricketing environment - and ours very much so!

And that's why they get a page all to themselves (it helps that the Webmaster is a member of the fraternity......).

 

To see the latest umpire roster (match-allocation), please refer to the combined fixtures-umpires table on the Competitions pages, under the heading Fixtures.

At the request of clubs at ACCSO AGM 2017, we've prepared a briefing document for umpires to use before a match, to inform captains and players how the match will be conducted.

If the question of Penalty Runs and sanctions comes up, there's a table (in both English and French) which matches all offences under the Laws with local ACCSO sanctions.

Our umpires are well-dressed (of course!) and very well-read.

They'll know The Laws inside out and back to front - including the recent changes in place since 1st April 2019.

But a refresher can be found here, on the MCC site.

 

ACCSO match regulations have their very own page on this site and it's there that umpires will also find

  • Match-Day Actions summary of what-to-do on the ground
  • The ACCSO Disciplinary Procedure
  • The Match Report form, which requires sign-off by umpires.
  • Sportmanship Award Form, to be completed by both umpires, at the ground, post match

Umpires have sole responsibility for assessing the fair play aspects of all competitive matches.
