Officials - #HantsACO

Hampshire Association of Cricket Officials (HACO)

The association's aim is to recruit and retain umpires and scorers by providing a structured training programme.  Its purpose is to improve standards of officials and encourage progression between grading levels to ensure there is a minimum number of umpires and scorers to support recreational cricket in the county.

All members of the ECB Association of Cricket Officials (ECB ACO) who have chosen Hampshire as their county, are automatically members of HACO.
