What are the Lancashire ACO offers/advantages?
Being a member of the ECB ACO gives automatic membership to the LACO.
The ECB ACO provides:
• The most comprehensive Insurance package available free to its members.
• A 32 page magazine delivered free to each members’ door.
• An annual seminar with guest speakers; where colleagues are able to share best practices and continue to develop as officials.
• Access to quality ECB ACO merchandise
Statistically, Lancashire has one of the strongest umpiring panels in the country. Seven of our members stand in County 2nd XI Cricket, five of which also stand in Minor Counties cricket. The pathway from the lower echelons of the recreational game to semi-professional cricket is there and the LACO regularly encourages members to develop as officials.
Several of our young scorers have scored at youth tournaments throughout the country and at Lords through the young officials programme and others have had the opportunity to score Lancashire age group matches.
