Welcome to the new East of Scotland Cricket Officials Association website
ESCOA was setup in the Winter of 2014 to represent the interests of Match Officials in the East of Scotland.
Since then, ESCOA has worked hard to implement the Umpire Category
System which is supported by boundary observations, mentoring and
colleague assessments. Categories are reviewed annually.
ESCOA continues to work towards its aims and objectivesas follows:
- To improve the standard of umpiring and scoring by education, examination and all other available means.
- To maintain the status of umpires and scorers and to promote and protect their interests.
- To co-operate and cultivate good relations with all bodies
associated with cricket for the improvement of the game, playing
conditions and application of its laws.
- To take such action or make such representations as an
association or in conjunction with others, as may be considered
desirable in the interests of cricket or for the benefit of umpires and
scorers as individuals and umpiring and scoring in general.
