The Argentine Cricket Association has recently formed the first ever Argentine Cricket Officials Association (ACOA) which is being driving by the ACA’s High Performance Manager Hamish Barton, who is acting as Chairman of the ACOA Committee. The committee consists of two local umpires (Malcolm Gibson and David Gibson) and two local scorers (Brandy Auld and Vicky Gibson).
The ACOA Mission Statement is - to establish a governing body that, in conjunction with the High Performance Manager of the Argentine Cricket Association, administers the development of umpiring and scoring (officiating) in Argentina and provides opportunities for people to become officials through the necessary tools, promotion, accreditation, remuneration and career pathways.
Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
