Sussex ACO acts as an umbrella organisation for the three Associations within Sussex. We represent local umpires and scorers on the Sussex Cricket Board, organise dates of training courses for umpires and scorers to ensure an even cover across the counties and organise a panel of umpires for County representative matches.

You will find information about our activities on our association pages within this website, linked above. Our associations always look to welcome new members, whether they be practising umpires or scorers or not. Please join us, we look forward to hearing from you.

Follow the links above to access information concerning the social, match appointment and training activities of the three associations across Sussex.
