NACOs run the ECB Level 1 scorers course, the computerised scorers course and the scorers correspondence course to accommodate as many people’s needs as possible. All dates shown are just provisional at the moment so please keep your eye out for further updates.


Scorers TCS – Total Cricket Scorer, Laptop Scoring

NOTE 3 dates in March have been set aside for TCS as follows Sunday 12th, Sunday 19th and Sunday 26th all March  2017 and were also looking at the winter Test Match Schedule to see if there’s a suitable date when we ‘score a live match – no pressure!’….

Details are as follows:-

  • Sunday 12th – New TCS-CricHQ version 9 – conversion/update for existing TCS users
  • Sunday 19th and Sunday 26th – these two sessions are the intro for those new to TCS. 1st session is ‘Practical Scoring with TCS (ideally for version 9) and 2nd session is ‘Setting Up, Editing, Reporting and a lot more’

§  PLEASE NOTE – these sessions are listed in the correct order, from previous experience it’s considered best to get a feel for scoring with TCS and then the set-up, editing etc becomes much easier to absorb

  • All sessions are 09.30 to 13.30
  • All candidates need own Laptop and full version of TCS
  • Cost – £10 per session (payable in advance)

If you have any questions regarding the training courses available please do not hesitate to get in contact with Terry Owen on terroland.owen@btinternet.com or via phone on 07764 471778.

Actual Scoring a Match Using TCS

We have a very good relationship with the County Club and we can get access to the Press Room and score from a similar position to appointed scorers but it’s limited 2 scorers per match day. We’ve run these before and they’ve proven to be a very successful learning method, there’s no pressure. If it’s a 3-day or 4-day game, you’re not expected to do all the days – you can do as little one day

  •  Available dates are as follows
  • 31st August 2016 for 4-day match Northampton
  • 12th September 2016 for a 4-day match Northampton
  • 12th September 2016 for a 3-day match at Desborough
  • April 2017 – dates to be advised – warm up matches at Northampton
  • Cost – £10 per day
