Some members of the former ACU&S Scorers' Committee under the leadership of Cathy Rawson have designed a new A3 score book to meet the requirements of the 2000 MCC Code of Laws (eg Penalty Runs etc).   The production has now been funded by Milstead C C and will NOT carry an ACU&S logo although they have bee approved by their Scorers' Committee.

They are now on sale with a retail price of 20.00. UK p&p 5 for 1, 10 for 2 or 3 copies UK p&p.   More than 3 post free in UK.   Overseas p&p - please ask for economy / standard / swiftair rate.   Refill packs will be available later.   LAUNCH PRICE includes FREE polythene carrying bag.

The books cater for 100 innings (50 matches) with loose leaf A3 (landscape) sized pages in a 4 ring binder, the front cover of which folds behind the hard back so that a worktop space of 18" x 13" is required by the scorer - but could also be used without a table.
