Welcome to the Scottish Cricket Officials Association Website

SCOA - the Scottish Cricket Officials Association - was founded in 2009 to look after the interests of Umpires and Scorers in Scotland. This website has been set up with a view to providing a central point of information on all matters to do with umpiring and scoring in Scottish cricket.

The Chairman of the Association, Mac Wylie, has penned a few introductory remarks in which he describes how the association came to life and he also emphasises that we seek input from all the association's members.

Please take some time to explore the various areas of the site that can be reached via the menu buttons at the top of this page. Any suggestions regarding improvements or indeed contributions to the site will be gratefully accepted.
