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 8 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 (100 innings) 11.50 + 7 UK p&p (any quantity).

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.

Now available from stock either by sending cheque with order to Acumen Books at the above address or by sending email and bank transfer.
