It would be an understatement to note that Steve Ward (right) knows a thing or two about cricket scoring.
As Regional Scorers Officer (North) for the ECB ACO (Association of Cricket Officials), his role has been to teach and update cricket scorers across the region as technology and the laws change.
Ahead of the 2018 season, there is much to report for those that wield pencils and coloured pens with clinical precision or dance their fingers over laptops and tablets while scanning for umpire signals.
Interviewed for the latest Cricket Yorkshire Podcast, Steve was scorer for Doncaster Town for 19 seasons and now two years into a stint at Sheffield Collegiate, Ward is a fixture both in a scorer’s box but known throughout Yorkshire cricket.
Featuring in this podcast is:
- The latest on the new ECB’s Play-Cricket Scorer Pro software
- New umpire signals
- Roadshow at Headingley on 7 April to network and learn (free but must book here)
