The Gloucestershire Association of Cricket Umpires and Scorers (GACUS) exists to recruit, train, develop, support and appoint cricket umpires and scorers in the north of Gloucestershire.

The Association was first established in 1987 and over the years has developed a national reputation for providing top class training and development for cricket umpires and scorers.

Our aim is to support all cricket umpires and scorers, whether they wish just to play a part in junior, local village and league cricket; or whether they aspire to officiate in top league and professional cricket across a number of Counties.

There is a much greater need for umpires and scorers than we can currently meet.  We therefore welcome anyone and everyone, irrespective of age, gender, ethnicity, cricket experience etc., who loves the game of cricket and wishes to explore this way of keeping close to the action.

Contact us for further details, or complete and send us a membership form online.

GACUS Aims and Objectives

  • To improve the standard of cricket umpiring and scoring within Glos. by training, education, preparation for exams and discussion
  • To improve communications between umpires and scorers in Glos. via newsletters, local associations, meetings and social functions
  • To co-ordinate the appointment of umpires and scorers to such matches as may be requested by the governing bodies for cricket
  • To promote, uphold and protect the status and interests of umpires and scorers
  • To take such action/representation as is desirable in the interest of cricket
  • To co-operate and cultivate good relations and improve communications with other associations and with all other cricketing bodies for the benefit of GACUS members and the betterment of the game of cricket.
