Officials receive long service awards

The Shropshire Association of Cricket Officials (SACO) held its AGM at Allscott Heath CC ahead of the new season with more than 60 umpires and scorers in attendance. 

The evening included a review of new league rules and ECB guidance together with the introduction of long service awards. 

SACO Secretary Andy Johnson said: “It is the first time that umpires and scorers have been recognised for their commitment and dedication to Shropshire cricket.

“The success of the game in Shropshire is dependent on scorers and umpires officiating at all levels, and we are always on the lookout for new umpires to join us on our League Panel.”
