Very sorry that MCC have no plans to revise this edition so there are some minor discrepancies with 2013 Laws
2004 was completely revised edition in a new, larger, format to cover the 2003 Law changes. We do still have copies of previous editions (often back as far as 1950's) available for historical reasons - please enquire.

DO YOU KNOW ANY PREVIOUS HISTORY OF THIS ITEM ?
2018 edition is now available All advance orders have been despatched.
The current edition is pocket sized (95mm x 165mm) and contains space for winner of toss, score at end of each over as well the usual bowler's record. It contains approx 40 "blue" premier style record cards on white paper - you can carry it in your coat all season and not have to scrabble around for individual cards. It also make a nice momento since it contains names of clubs, colleagues etc.
The front cover bears Nompere logo - but we can produce personalised versions with the logo of your sponsor, league, association etc. - minimum quantity of 50 required - ask for details
Match summary includes space for timing intervals, interruptions etc plus traditional bowlers' grid.Especially suitable for Premier and T20 games where time is a critical factor.
You can also take a surreptitious peek at the penalty table without embarrassing yourself by looking at blue law book in front of players! The example shown is from previous years - the new book includes Players' Conduct
SIX Aide Memoires
- ECB Age groups for young bowlers with actual birthdates
- over rate ready reckoner
- summary of penalties.
- captains' conference check list
- umpire's equipment check list
- FOR 2018 - a grid to remind you of your own competition special regulations.
2018 Blue cards are available in A5 folded format and include more space for recording times of events - vital in several parts of new code.
With the advent of the updated Laws, it is essential that umpires make more detailed notes, especially the timings.
Acumen Books have enhanced their traditional pink over record cards with extra space to make these records:
- assist in calculation of over rates
- notes on players leaving the field
- time for incoming batsmen (also method of dismissal in case scorers query later)
as well as all the traditional ones to keep track of each bowler's spell
(you should record the actual number of the over against each bowler as this will identify when a young bowler can resume)
WRITE DOWN every over - so no need for a wheeled counter (although we can sell you Gray Nicolls one, we strongly recommend our 6 lever counter OR the use of pebbles, coins or tokens as these can be used as a double action)
As before, there is space for some of the most important information about the match (eg finish time, number of overs which will probably be different on Sunday than on Saturday! as well as name of tea lady (or man)!)
Our log book with 40 matches is also available (A6 size) but also contains several useful aide memoires.
2015 Pink cards with extra space for recording the exact times of 14 interruptions in play in each innings (eg time taken for new batsman to come in, ball lost over boundary, injuries etc) all of which may be important factors in determining penalties for slow over rates. Now with space for score at end of each over.
We have now removed the last hour calculator - although we can still supply the GREEN version on special order.
We also sell West Surrey Cards which are thicker but do not contain last 20 over calculations nor the detailed times.
GREEN cards, including last hour calculator, similar to PINK but with less extra space for recording the stoppages ALSO without score at end of over - AVAILABLE on SPECIAL ORDER only.
click here for more details of all the latest cards or send SAE for a sample card.
NB postage is calculated on the weight of 40 cards - if you require fewer - please email us for a quotation - we hope to improve this computer facility soon. If you buy 80, then you get a bargain!
Please note that where the available quantity is not shown, then we do not keep a running online stock check as we should have a large quantity immediately available.
The sturdy ring bound version includes finger index tabs and is printed on one side only. This enables the reader to make notes on the facing page and to insert future amendment sheets most easily.
Please be aware there is a blind spot in the computer program and it calculates postage based on the very HEAVY ring binder version. To allow for this, we show a much lower price against the comb-bound version - do not then be alarmed by the high postage calculated.
Please do not hesitate to email office[AT]AcumenBooks.co.uk to clarify this point or ask for overseas or bulk prices.
The intention is that MCC will subsequently issue individual amendment pages.
