Brighton & Mid Sussex

West Sussex


Our core area covers the old Eastbourne & District ACO and the Hastings & District ACO with members in Seaford across to Rye and as far north as Robertsbridge across to Crowborough. Our current Umpire & Scorer courses take place just outside of Battle at Crowhurst Park Manor but we would be happy to visit any cricket club in East Sussex and are looking to run courses elsewhere if the demand exists.

Ongoing membership of the ECB Association of Cricket Officials is not mandatory, but highly recommended, if only for the free insurance cover and free CRB check. You should bear in mind that membership of ECB ACO is mandatory if you intend umpiring ECB controlled matches. Membership currently costs £30 per year.


We have a very busy winter schedule providing indoor umpires to the local Hastings & District Cricket Association competitions. We are always looking for new indoor umpires so anyone interested please contact John Holland (07906 167377).
